Book Review - I'll Be Yours By Jennie B Jones


Oh my goodness! This book was amazing! I devoured this book like it was my mom's macaroni and cheese. 

I loved Harper. She was damaged and broken but not hopeless. She was quirky, funny, brave and devoted. And talk about FEARLESS. This girl was willing to brave bullets to rescue a helpless animal. How awesome is that? And Ridley Estas. Can you say H-O-T? OMG he was everything. There is this one scene on the balcony at his job that gave me all of the feels. Buy this book and read it! Then read it again. Then fan yourself and read it a third time. Then thank me for making you read it. Yes, it is that good.

Jenny B Jones puts together an awesome, sweet read here. It is PG-13 and full of drama, tears, romance, and a very entertaining cast of characters. The book doesn't tie up in a nice little bow, but the way it does end is very emotionally satisfying. Finally, if you have the opportunity, get the audio version. It is very well done and adds a nice layer onto the reading.

She’s the coach’s brilliant daughter, clueless about love. He’s the dethroned football star, ready to teach Romance 101. When dark secrets and sparks collide, there’s no playbook for what happens next.

The day Andrew Levin arrives at Washington High, Harper O’Malley knows he’ll make the perfect starter boyfriend. The school’s newest band geek is totally in Harper’s league, yet completely out of this late-bloomer’s reach. Between fitting in with a new family, scoring the first chair in band, and rescuing dogs for the local animal shelter, Harper’s never had the opportunity to hone her dating skills. But even though Harper’s love life is far from perfect, she’s got the perfect plan.

Harper knows she’s insane to agree to tutor Ridley Estes, a notorious heartbreaker and the star of her high school’s football team—but in exchange, he’s offered to school her in the game of love. Just when she sees promise with her crush, a football scandal rocks her family, her town, and Ridley’s entire future. Harper suddenly has everything to lose—her family, friends, and even her heart. When the dust of the scandal settles, nothing will be the same. Including the girl who asked the most popular jock to teach her about love.
