Title: It’s Just Love, Not A Time Bomb
Author: Dawn Martens
Release Date: December 1, 2014
When Jordan moves in with his friend’s cousin, he thinks things will be easy. Yeah, screw that. The woman is a pain in his ass from the start, giving him whiplash with her hot and cold act. Still, Jordan can’t help wanting Alix—even if he does spend half the time trying to decide if he wants to kiss her senseless or choke her.
For Alix, men are worthless jerks. She’s made a vow to steer clear of relationships, but the moment Jordan pushes his way into her life, her vow is shot all to hell. Every attempt at avoiding the cocky bastard ends in tangled sheets and Alix wanting to kill the man. But she wants him, more than she cares to admit.
Will this jaded couple give into their feelings? After all, it's Just Love, Not a Time bomb.
This book is a Romantic Comedy, but still should not be read by those under 18.
The blurb complete drew me in as it sounded like it would be a fun read. It was a cute story and definitely had me chuckling at times (cue the throw a condom filled with glue at cops… omg i nearly peed my pants). I loved Jordan, he seemed like such a kick ass guy, and really seemed to go out of his way to try and make Alix happy.
I really enjoyed Alix's character at first. She was spunky, a smartass, and the banter between her and Jordan was pretty dang amusing. However, in the last third of the book it really started to become a bit much for me. Here was Jordan, this great guy who wanted to give Alix the world. They were madly in love, yet Alix was still acting like a total bitch to him. I totally understood her attitude and bitchiness for the longest time, but it felt like come the end, she really should have lightened up. If I was Jordan, there is no way that after all that time I would have continued to put up with that shit. For me, it really ended up aggravating me towards the end.
One thing that I loved was that you got to see where the characters ended up years down the line. I am assuming that this is a standalone novel, and with that being said it was fantastic how the end fast forwarded to different parts of their life in the future instead of just leaving you hanging wondering what happens in the future.
At times I was getting a little confused because there was a lot going on with all the different characters. At times it was a little tricky to keep up with it all and trying to remember what had happened with each one. I was a little disappointed that you did not end up finding out what had happened between Kelli and Jaxon… it really killed me because I was so lost (not to mention I was dying to know). Although after finishing reading this book I found out there will end up being a spinoff about these two characters so hopefully all will be revealed in that story.
Let's not forget about the crazy exes. Oh man what a hoot. They really brought quite the entertainment to this story. I hate to say it, but I may have actually enjoyed reading about them more than Jordan and Alix. I mean, they were seriously CRAZY!!!!!
This was a cute, fun, quick read and I look forward to getting Kelli and Jaxon's story in the future.
