Trusting Jake - ( Blueprint To Love series book #1) - by Lauren Giordano
Broken down at the side of the road, Jenna Stone's life is like her car. In need of a jumpstart. Tired of playing by other people's rules, the widowed single mom guards her new freedom by keeping her deadbeat husband alive . . . in name only. But meeting Jake Traynor makes her question the merits of lying. Will he break down the fortress around her heart?
Falling for a married woman was never in the blueprint. The definition of responsible son, workaholic executive Jackson Traynor is driven to prove his father right in promoting Jake to run the family construction company. He's all business. No pleasure. Until assisting a beautiful redhead with her broken down car reminds Jake what he wants.
What if the only person you want is the one you can never have? Battling their deepening attraction, Jake must question everything he's ever believed-- because Jen and her kids are the family he's always dreamed of. Jenna must choose between a safe life and the one of her dreams. When Jake's company is threatened, she will risk everything to protect him-- even if it means exposing old secrets.
What a really great read ... Trusting Jake has a dual P.O.V book which switches frequently ..
Trusting Jake is about Jen and her two little ones Alex and Megan..
Her husband was abusive, treated her like crap and was a shitty dad to the little ones.
Also at her job she has to deal with male workmates hitting on her and treating her like she is trash, they end up getting her fired. Her husband is cheating on her "a lot" then ends up killing himself in a car accident.
To get away from everything, she moves to a new town for a fresh start, for her and the kids.
On the way to a job interview, her car breaks down and she is rescued by the very handsome business man Jake and he offers her a lift home.
On the drive she explains about the job interview and what type of qualifications she has. There is an instant attraction between them..
Due to the problems with men hitting on her in the past she still wears her wedding ring so people will think she's taken.
Jake ends up offering Jen a job at his company as his pa/assistant... the more time Jake spends with Jen and her kids the more he finds himself falling for her, he believes she is married to her Ex Rick and that he works away from home.
They both start to fall in love .... but everything gets in the way.
Jake and Jen are perfect together, Jake is so bloody cute when he is with Jen's kids .. it's so lovely to read.
I cant praise this book enough, it was very well written and I didn't find any flaws.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVED IT ... I can't wait for Harrison's book..
Well Done Lauren on this great book.....xoxo faye
