Jaded Summary

Love is a Lie.

As a photographer for the New York Post, Kari Martin was used to seeing heartache and scandal up close. But one night at the club… her whole world changed.

Heartbroken and willing to call off her wedding, she decides a change is in order and moves from NYC to a small town in Maine, where the average age of the residents there is sixty (or thereabouts). She works to fit in perfectly, and tries like hell not to let anyone find out just how very jaded she's recently become over the lie called love.

Jake Isaac left Texas quite a few years ago; his heart torn from his chest, and his mind set on being a bachelor forever. Maine would welcome him, give him land to explore and a community to belong to. Getting a job as the coach of the local junior high and serving on the fire department kept him busy — and labeled him a hometown hero — but the truth of his damaged heart was forever hidden.

No one would ever know just how jaded he was about love.

That is… until he meets Kari.

2 ⭐️ because it isn’t the worst book I’ve read. Way too much emphasis on the three moving out of state only to debate the color of the walls of their new home. Lisa is a piece of work that someone needs to finish. Btw, she added nothing positive to this book. Not cute,silly,funny,sexy or charming. A hot mess in the worst sort of way. And to think, she eventually gets her on story....🤔25


3 ⭐️ for average rating.3 star

Didn’t love it, didn’t hate it. It’s not memorable, if I ever have to remove downloads to make space, this book would be gone. I was sweet, sometimes to sweet. No laugh out loud moments but some funny bits here and there. Started off with promise but then fizzled. At the same time, I did want to complete it. I didn’t feel compelled to do so, but it was a read that I was able to walk away from.35


Nice romantic tale4 star

This is the story of heartbreak and fate. It is a very nice tale of romance. The author writes about each character very carefully and thought out out. Kari and her friends are hilarious but it shows their friendship is truly strong. Kari goes through a lot but eventually gets her HEA. Jake has had a very rough past and finds it hard to open up. Once he allows himself to the devil come knocking. This book was worth the read, can’t wait to read the next installment. ~there are no hot sex scenes in this book~45
