Escape In You by Rachel Schurig
Goodreads rating: 3.55/5 stars
My rating: 3/5 stars
Genre: New Adult, Romance
Jet Taylor is the quintessential bad boy. A womanizer. A fighter. Dangerous. The type of guy most girls do their best to avoid. But Zoe Janes is no saint herself. In fact, she sees in Jet the perfect opportunity to distract herself from her responsibilities at home and the mistakes that keep her trapped there. He’s gorgeous, likes to party, and is clearly only interested in having fun—just like Zoe.
The more time they spend together, the harder it is for Zoe to stick to her “fun only” mantra. Jet is getting under her skin, making her believe things could actually be different. She knows they’re both trapped by the sins of their past but Jet is starting to make her think freedom might actually be possible.
And that makes him the most dangerous boy of all.
Thank you NetGalley for the copy of this book!
Two bad-ass characters in a love story is a great combination. Jet Taylor and Zoe Janes were two people who have guilt and burdens in life leaving them broken. As an escape, they both deal with alcohol and the supposed-to-be-just-for-fun-fling turned out into something they will hold on together and fall in love with each other.
It was a decent read. However, the story was predictable and some parts bored me. It's not that bad, but it could be more. I'm waiting for something to happen and will make me giddy. Don't get me wrong, Jet Taylor is undeniably sexy but I'm hoping for more and I'm kinda curious with Fred and Ellie. This has a potential to become a good book, so it's still a thumbs up for me.
