Review: Jinx You're It by Cynthia Eden
Jinx lives for his good times. With a ready smile and quick joke, his charm carries him through most rough situations. And when his grin doesn’t work, he just uses the down and dirty skills he acquired working Special Forces to get the job done. Life is easy, his luck is perfect, and nothing will slow him down. Except maybe…her.
It was a one-night stand she should forget.
Allison “Ali” Carter does not have time for handsome playboys—not even the ones with killer blue eyes and abs that last for days. Sure, she might have given in just one time and let her desire for Jinx take over, but she is not about to repeat that mistake, no matter how great the night was. She’s down on the Gulf Coast for a week of sun and relaxation. Jinx isn’t part of the plan.
Until he is the only plan.
Trouble has followed Ali down to the coast. On her last classified mission, she acquired a most dangerous stalker. The kind of guy that you can’t ditch, no matter how hard you try. The kind of guy who can scare a woman to death. And to help Ali deal with him? A most unlikely hero offers up his services.
He wants his second chance.
When Ali walked away from Jinx, it shouldn’t have hurt. He should have forgotten her and moved on. But since that fateful night, she’s been in his head. Been tormenting his dreams. So when she appears in his PI office and she’s in danger? Jinx immediately leaps into action. He’ll show Ali that he’s more than just a fast grin. This time, it’s not about being lucky. This time, it’s about protecting Ali and maybe, just maybe…winning her heart.
There are certain authors that just write the hero's you love. For me, Cynthia Eden is one of them. I just can't help but enjoy her heroes.
Up this time is Jinx. You met him in the prior book in the series. He's funny with tons of secrets and just a bit scary. All that you want in your hero. I just loved him. The humor does hide a shit ton of sadness and pain. You start to see that as you read the story. Sometimes we have to learn that things are out of our control. I have to say that I really like how he and his brother work so hard to protect each other from their lives and instead of them just talking and dealing with their pasts they lash out at each other. We'll see how they work it out in the next book. I love the cover Jinx and Ramsey's cover is just as good.
I also like Ali. She wants Jinx but doesn't want to put him in danger. You can't help understanding why she acted the way she did. She down deep cares for Jinx but isn't sure they can make it work. My heart breaks for what happened to her as a kid. She really made some mistakes and paid for them big time.
There is a ton of stuff going on and I'm glad Ramsey is in the story and that we understand more about him too. I'm looking forward to his story. I really think you'll enjoy this story and be drawn in by all the things going on.
I've loved all the books in this series so far. I would read them in order because it will make for a better series. Have any of you read her?
