Loving Jake is the first book in the Almost Perfect Series by Lisa Lanay. It is the first I have read by her, but I am anxiously awaiting book 2. The book is well written, with strong fun characters. I was upset by the direction the book was heading, but I am happy the way it ended. It wrapped up nicely, while leaving an opening for the second book in the series.
Kimberly has been in love with Jake since she was a kid. He is a friend of her brother’s and has thus been off limits. When Jake comes back to town, and shows up at a party, Kimberly’s sister decides to start the wheels turning. She lies and says Kimberly has a room for rent, when Jake mentions he will be in town for a while and needs a place to stay. At first Kimberly is shocked, embarrassed, star struck… but then she decides it could be perfect. It’s easier for someone to fall in love with you, when they are under the same roof and spending hours with you. But sometimes things don’t work out as you want them to. Buckle your seat belt and prepare for a roller coaster ride.
