Jesse (Glass City Hearts Book 3)
By Desiree Lafawn
5 Stars

Jesse is the third book in the Glass City Hearts series by Desiree Lafawn. I am not sure how Ms. Lafawn manages to outdo the last book but she definitely did it with Jesse. I will admit that he is AWESOME and the hotness and sultry vibe still roles on in book 3.

Jesse had different plans for his life but with family and loyalty being what he was taught growing up he finds that it’s not something he can ignore. So life finds him tending bar and giving up on his dreams.

Harlow Jones is not your usual girl. With a knack for fixing anything mechanical and a whiz at the computer, she knows she’s different. To better her life and that of her son Harlow just needs to land this job at Glass City. What she wasn’t expecting were the complications that come with meeting Jesse.

Ms. Lafawn has captured my interest with the unique flow of her writing. From the bevy of old characters that we get to re-visit to finally being able to have the ending to Jesse’s story the reader is taken for an emotional ride that will have you laughing (and maybe wanting to relocate to a new living area) and crying as these two characters learn about themselves and each other. This book is extremely well written and will keep you entertained from the first page to the last. I can’t wait to dive into the next book in the series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jesse by Desiree LaFawn is the third book in her Glass City Hearts series, and while I have loved each of this series books this is honestly my favorite to date. Jesse has got it all – romance, suspense, drama and tugging at my heart strings. Following the stories of Jesse and Harlow you get to see just how much these two are willing to sacrifice for family. For Jesse his family is everything. Growing up with a father who drilled it into you that Family is more important than everything else, he knew that at a drop of a hat he would give up his life for his blood. Jesse has always wanted to own a bakery, but he puts his dreams on hold to take care of his father’s bar. He was always fine just working away for the family business, until her. Meeting Harlow, his whole perspective on family changes. This woman calls to him in a way that he never expected, and that pull is enough to make he do anything to keep her in his life. Can Jesse take his dreams and make them work with Harlow? Or will he need to forge his own path away from family before he can commit to a ready-made family with Harlow and her son?
Harlow is a woman that just can’t see to get this being a female thing right. Other than having her son just over five years ago, she is more of a tom boy than ever. She has always been a hardworking, determined woman who would do whatever it takes to give her son the best life possible…no matter the cost. Just when she has plans to get a bit closer to the future that she envisioned for herself, the duties of a single mother get in the way. And then she meets Jesse. There is something about this guy that keeps her coming back for more. Is it possible that she can have a great guy and her visions of the life she planned with her son? Will Jesse be willing to work with her or be wanting to change her? Can she chance her heart on someone new? Read this steamy story to find out! Having read all of the Glass City Hearts series prior to this, I had very high expectations for this book, and LaFawn did not let me down one bit. I highly recommend reading these books in order, even though each book can be read as a stand-alone story. I can’t wait to see where she takes this series in the future because from where I am at, I can only see it continuing to get better and better!

Do you ever come across an author who, every time you read them, makes you love them even more? This is one such author for me. Jesse was soooo funny at times, making me laugh loudly and get funny looks. Beyond that, though, is good story. It has characters from previous books but can be read totally on it’s own. Jesse is sweet but also delicious, and Harlow is such a good mom and deserves every moment of happiness coming to her, especially since she has raised such an awesome little boy. Things get a little crazy near the end, which I kind of figured they would. And I was in tears at one point. I just loved this hard.

Jesse- Desiree LaFawn

5-stars

Jesse by Desiree LaFawn is a must read! As I sit here writing this review I’m having a hard time finding the right words to describe how much I loved this book! It’s intense, dramatic, captivating, sweet, quirky and romantic. Jesse is the 3rd book in the Glass City Hearts series, it also happens to be the first book I’ve read in the series, so I can honestly say that it can be read as a standalone. I was able to jump right in and follow along with no confusion. Having said that I will immediately be diving into the first two books of the series because I loved this one so much.

I immediately connected with Harlow and Jesse’s sense of humour and inner ramblings had me swooning from chapter one. The only downside to this book was the length, I could have continued reading about these two for hours.

I can’t wait to read the rest of this series and I would definitely recommend this book to others!

AMAZING!! That’s the word I would use to describe this book! I absolutely loved every second of it. I was hooked from the very beginning and I never wanted it to end! I have read books by this author before and I love her writing style, her books are truly a joy and pleasure to read. I think Jesse and Harlow are two of my favourite characters that I have read so far this year, they were relatable and I connected with them straight away. I loved the chemistry between the two of them. I really loved Harlow! She was just so amazing to read about. Jesse – oh be still my heart – I LOVED him! I didn’t want the story to end because I wanted to read more about him!
This book could be read as a standalone but you will not regret reading the others book in the series at all! I loved everything about this book and I can’t wait to read more from this author again in the future!!

Jessie is the third book in the Glass City Hears series from Desiree Lafawn. I would highly recommend that you read the other books in the series before you read this one. Now with that said, you can read this as a standalone. I would keep in mind a few things though. There are several characters and their story lines that make appearances in this book. This series is a great series. Each book tops the one before it, a task that I keep finding harder to accomplish but proven wrong by Ms. Lafawn. Jesse happens to be my favorite so far!

Jesse is such a sweet romance. He himself is a sweet character. I truly enjoyed reading him and Harlow only sweetened the deal that much more. This was their story. Jesse manages the bar his father owns. It really isn’t his passion though and to make matters worse the relationship he has with his family is strained at best. Then he meets Harlow. There is a pretty intense connection between the two off the bat. Harlow needs a job to take care of her son. Jesse wants to help out. How will the workplace romance work out? Can they find happiness together?

I just loved all the sweet and wholesome feel-good love in this book. It was nice to light happy love story to coo at for a few hours. I can’t wait to see what will come next in the series. Thanks for another great read Ms. Lafawn!

Jesse is the third book in the Glass City Hearts series. It can be read as a standalone. This book does reference events that happened to the other characters, and now I want to go back and read the previous books because they sound like great stories, lol.

I had no idea what to expect from this book when I chose to read it, but it proved to be an entertaining read. It has a great mix of humor, sarcasm, mystery, danger, romance, and family drama. The characters were easy to connect to and the story hooks you in right away.

Also note that there are a couple of places in the story that get you in the feels, so have some tissues nearby.

Cute story, sweet and funny. This is only the second book I have read by this author however it is the first in the Glass City Hearts series. I can say that I will read the other books in this series because I really like Lafawn’s writing style. She keeps the story moving with characters that make you laugh out loud at their situations and the things they say.

Harlow is a single mother and out heroine in this story. She is trying hard to make a better life for her and her son.

Jesse our hero of this story is just trying to help his drunken dad run their bar. Jesse doesn’t even know Harlow is what’s missing in his life. He is very swoon worthy, responsibly, loyal, funny and sexy with that beard of his.

When these two first meet, Harlow’s son causes an embarrassing situation. Jesse, however, handles it with ease and grace. Again, swoon worthy!

I look forward to reading more stories by Lafawn. I plan on reading the others in this series just so I an see what the other characters are up to.

Jesse is book three in the Glass City Hearts series by Desiree Lafawn. It is a mixture of suspense, determination, strength, courage, tension, passion, love, triumph. It has loads of everything. Everything that makes you think hard, breathe hard, cringe hard, laugh hard, cry hard, pray hard, rejoice hard. A romance with it all.

Jesse melted my heart as well as raised my blood pressure. He sounded all sorts of hot. Pleasure getting to know him. Harlow displays a strength that is admirable. She does what she has to do. She is great at what she does. She is tough femininity personified. Add in the characters from earlier in the series, and you have one story you just cannot put down. They are colourful, cantankerous, courageous, and day they make no apologies for that.

Jesse was an unforgettably decadent read. 5 stars.

***sigh***

Sitting here trying to find the words to describe the love I have for this book, and for this series, and most especially for this author. I saw this book and it was a no brainer, must have now and here I sit seriously wanting to go read it all over again, which leads me into my only negative for the story…It ended…

Yes I guess you could technically read this as a standalone but I can’t imagine not having all of the other stories to go with this amazingly awesome cast of characters…You truly have to start with Permanence of Pain although not listed as part of this series, it kind of is in my opinion then move on to Gabe then Dino and then…Jesse…I can not pick a favorite of any of these but Jesse was different, gave me that comfortable warm feeling while reading it.

Harlow surprised me in a good way. At first I thought she was going to follow the path of most damsels in distress and be all needy and weak…No No No….she was awesome!! There was just enough of everything in this story, the witty interaction between all of these characters and the families was perfect, and then the twists…I hadn’t even totally wrapped my mind around the first one before the second one blew me away.

I still just don’t have the words to give this author the justice she deserves for this addition to this amazing series…I’m not even playing when I say you have to read these books and I just know you will fall in love as I have.

I’m hoping with all I have that there’s more to come, whether it be new characters or just a whole book about the ones we already know and love…I don’t care, I just want more!!

Beautiful Story!!
