BookWhisperer Rating:

three books

I am not a slut, although I’ve been called one often enough. Yeah, I spent three months screwing one of my college professors, but I was crazy about the guy. Then he broke up with me.
I am not a bitch, although people like to say I am. I kept our relationship secret. I’m not responsible for telling the university administrators about it, but a lot of students still blame me for getting their favorite professor fired.
I am not a drama queen, although everyone thinks I am now. When I got a few nasty messages, I just deleted them. When I got the threat, I assumed it was someone being stupid. I still think that’s all it was. My parents worry, though, so they hired me a bodyguard. Now Jack follows me around, intimidating everyone who approaches me and looking obnoxiously hot.
This is what I am. I’m Chloe. I’m a twenty-year-old art history major. Kind of shy, although I pretend not to be. Stubborn enough to stay here for my senior year, even though everyone hates me.
And I’m stuck with Jack.
He calls me “Princess,” but I’m not a princess either.

our thoughts Knowing Jack invoked a mixture of feelings for me. At first, I was quite certain that I would love this story. Jack and Chloe put off a wonderful hot and cold romance that really had the story building in the beginning. Curtis created the perfect tug of war; with just the right amount of verbal foreplay that I was hanging on every word. Then almost instantaneously the story shifts, and I was completely taken back. In the blink of an eye I found myself with a love craze man in a very precarious situation. From this point on it was the love story that we are walking the train wreck approaching. I all of a sudden found myself very frustrated with both characters, and feeling that the story line drifted from the realistic and enticing adventure that I found in the beginning. Knowing Jack holds some very potent potential, but I feel that it didn't fully develop.
