READ AND REVIEW
JACKSON'S TRUST (FOURTH DOWN) BY VIOLET DUKE
Release Date: March 8, 2016
New York Times bestselling author Violet Duke kicks off her fun and sexy new Fourth Down series with a heartwarming friends-to-lovers romance between a no-strings-attached sports analyst and the hottest damn tomboy he’s ever met.
It’s no secret that sports analyst Jackson Gray doesn’t do relationships. What is a secret, however, is the reason why. Jackson’s life is . . . complicated. And it doesn’t help that his current hands-off “friendship” is with the cute-as-hell new sideline reporter he’s assigned to train. Turns out, not only is the woman damn sweet, she also knows as much about football as he does. Like it or not though, Jackson has to remind himself that sex is the only thing he has to offer . . . until now.
Leila Hart’s fast-growing friendship with Jackson is something she’d never risk, no matter how unbelievably seductive the reward. Becoming an NFL sportscaster has always been the goal, and thanks to Jackson’s fierce support and mentoring, it all finally seems within reach. Problem is, a girl can only take so much of that sexy-as-sin voice whispering dirty, filthy football stats in her ear before she loses all self-control. A workplace romance with Jackson is a disaster waiting to happen, especially for someone with big dreams . . . and secrets of her own.
REVIEW: JACKSON'S TRUST (FOURTH DOWN) BY VIOLET DUKE
Jackson's Trust by Violet Duke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Life lessons presented in stories of realism wrapped in a hug. That is how I see Violet Duke's stories.
Jackson's Trust is my reintroduction to Ms. Duke. Her capacity to write strong female characters not afraid of being vulnerable but able to hold their own no matter the obstacles is my favorite aspect of her writing. Through NetGalley I received an ARC of Jackson's Trust in exchange for an honest review. I liked the theme of being true to yourself. That is a great lesson. Leila at heart is a tomboy but outside she sort of struggles to find her place. Jackson is not as carefree as he seems. His deeply buried issues influence his life. What I love about a Violet Duke novel is that there are hidden meanings in every scenario, but there is also flare, charm and great storytelling.
