What It’s About:
What happens when a high-heeled diva goes camping with her sister’s dog?
Avery Montgomery, fashionista and preacher’s daughter, needs a ride from Milwaukee to Los Angeles.
“Make my death quick, and please don’t tie me up. I’m claustrophobic.”>
Jake Matthews, diva-hater, agrees to let her tag along on his annual but primitive trek to the West Coast.
“Okay, Princess, I’ll take you to L.A., but your crown won’t make it there in one piece.”
She’s desperate and out of options.He’s ruthless and out of patience.
Don’t miss this sexy, hilarious, and heart-warming journey of self-discovery and raw … naked love.
My first Jewel E. Ann novel was Undeniably You; it made me a die-hard fan, and the book remains one of my favorites to this day. The author’s latest novel, Naked Love, is a follow on to that book. It features Avery Montgomery, who is the sister of the main character in Undeniably You.
Avery’s story couldn’t be more different than that of her sister. Avery is a white-hot mess from the start of this book! She is the quintessential girlie-girl who loves her spa treatments and pretty shoes. She works hard at keeping up her looks, and while it might seem that it is all about catching a sugar daddy, it is a lot about her feelings of inadequacy. It is easy to dislike her shallowness, but deep down, Avery is a fragile wreck with whom I fell in love.
Author Jewel E. Ann creates fantastically flawed characters, and both her heroine, Avery, and hero, Jake Matthews, have issues. I loved the intricately woven story where Avery and Jake’s lives intersect at multiple points on the timeline of their lives. It’s nothing short of comedic genius (and bad luck for Avery).
A second chance at love for dad, leads Avery on the road trip from hell. It leaves her without extensions, makeup, and most of her possessions. In the end, will it leave her with what she truly needs and wants? Her road trip with Jake is not just a journey to Los Angeles. It is also a journey of self-discovery. These two very different characters have the great chemistry and fantastic banter. I appreciated how Jake’s pushing leads Avery to letting her light shine.
Naked love is full of laugh-out-loud moments as well as a few tear your heart-to-pieces moments, and that rocky journey is wonderful.
