Jesse by Desiree Lafawn is the third book in her Glass City Hearts series. This book can be read as a stand-alone although all are definitely worth reading.
Jesse has had a hard upbringing. With an emotionally absent father he has learnt the hard way that he has to stand on his own two feet. And the way he grew up has effected his adult life. He doesn’t want a family, doesn’t expect to find love. But when he meets Harlow everything starts to change.
A single mother she is everything he should stay away from. And yet he finds himself drawn to her, finds he can’t stay away. And the more time he spends with her Jesse starts to learn that, unlike what his father always said, blood isn’t always thicker.
This series just gets better and better. This book has to be my favourite so far. I loved Harlow as a character. I loved that the author made her completely unlike the usual heroine type. She was strong and independent and completely unfeminine in the best kind of way. This is a great book and a great series, I would highly recommend them!
