Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Summary –

This new adult contemporary romance contains mature themes and is recommended for ages 18+

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. (Thanks to for the summary)

My Thoughts –

I think this is an excellent story about moving on and climbing out of the rut these two people were living in. Escape in You is easy to read, well written and easily understandable.

Zoe and Taylor (Jet) are two new adults that have had to grow up at a young age and seem to have given up on anything for themselves or to even be happy. They both use drugs, alcohol and sex to cope with their issues – which leads them to each other. They find peace with each other, but they still can’t let each other in all the way.

I like both of these characters and I think they’re both strong in their own way, but then they both have their weaknesses. I feel bad that these (essentially) kids have such horrific parents, Taylor with the hateful mother and absent father and Zoe with depressed bipolar mother. My heart went out to these two and I was glad they found their way together. I look forward to more from this author.  Great job!!
