review: Knowing Jack by Rachel Curtis

Knowing Jack by Rachel Curtis

My rating:  3/5
DRC provided by NetGalley for an honest review
Published: 1.17.2014
Genre:  New Adult Contemporary Romance

Summary –

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

My Thoughts –

Knowing Jack is a nice change of scenery in the New Adult Romance genre.  It’s easy to read, fast paced and uses modern terms and situations.  I like the differences in this story compared to a lot…I mean A LOT… of what popular with New Adult fans.  I really dig the characters, Jack especially.  He was totally fracking awesome.  Chloe was ok.  I really think she should have taken her situation a little more seriously, but her naivety really showed how “young” people that age can really be.  I like the chemistry between the two and their banter is comical.   

As I mentioned before, this is a nice change of pace for the NA genre and I’d read a part 2 if there is going to be one – for sure.  Great job!!
