Jackson's Trust_Duke (1)


Yowza! What a fantastic read that got me invested and captivates my heart and mind. It was funny, sweet, sexy, flirty and steamy. I went from laughing, to swooning to making my jaw dropped and then back to swooning again then finally fall in love with them.

So, this book follows the story of Jackson Gray, a senior analyst of DBC Sports Network who looked like any other ridiculously handsome former athlete. But more than that, HE IS DEEP and HE DOESN'T DO RELATIONSHIPS...only SEX..just sex..and occasionally with lunch or dinner but NEVER BREAKFAST.

"He was friendly, yes, but nothing more. Interesting. And it didn’t even look like he was doing it for Leila’s benefit. A flirt savant with parameters. Darn it, why did he have to be so intriguing?" 

And then there's Leila Hart, new addition to the team as the sideline reporter who speaks and thinks the same language with Jackson when it comes to football.

"For Jackson, Leila was absolutely his kind of pretty. Country girl cute with carnivorous curves that hinted at her preference of steak over salad. Guileless eyes he’d already seen could turn into a lethal glare when needed. Wholly reactive expressions—when she allowed them to roam free on her face—so expressions— so candid they seemed to feed directly from her heart." 

What started off as workmates/mentoring/ coaching turned to “A perfect, and perfectly chaste friends-with-snuggle-benefits relationship.” Or cuddle buddies for short and then so much more.. 

But what if both held and kept a secret of their own?
...and Jackson's Trust???it's for you to find out...

Oh boy, I love this book!!!This is actually my first Violet Duke read, and I tell you she makes a mean book. Right from the start you will be invested because it was written flawlessly. Her writing style is just awesome in a way that will make you more intrigue. The way she conveys the story to the readers is just so great that you could not put it down the moment you stated reading it. I even stayed until the wee hours just to finished it because I don't want to be left hanging. What's more lovable is the chemistry of the leads which is just so strong and just fitted perfectly for this plot. The romance is light and easy but definitely left a mark. The drama is there but not too much to make it boring. Even the secondary characters just blends with them and added more color to the story. Admittedly though, I guess that twist wasn't necessary at all. The story is flawless as it is although it adds another part where you have something to look forward to.
Overall, this book is really great.I had so much fun reading it. I am even looking forward to read Bennet's story and I am so excited to see what Violet Duke is in store for us in her next installment. Bet she'll still nail it that's why I really can't wait to read it.
