Well we finally get Jesse! Im so happy to be back with this series and these are just never long enough for me, I may need to read slower!
Jesse and Harlow meet in a way you would never believe, and it just goes from there.
I was laughing so hard at one point I couldn’t see through my laughter tears, but it was needed to break that bombshell!
What a read and I hope we get to see more of this group soon!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jesse is the third book in Desiree Lafawn’s Glass City Hearts series. I have not read the first two books but I had read The Permanence of Pain so I thought I knew what to expect but it was a bit different. I loved The Permanence of Pain and loved meeting Beck again and I loved Jesse even more … in some ways it was not as dark as my first encounter with the writer though it had sufficient human suffering and weakness and evil …
So, Jesse is the story of Jessie “Jesse” Belton and Harlow Jones and Harlow’s little four year old son JJ (Jesse Jones). They meet when JJ pees on Jesse’s shirt and this is, my friends, how a beautiful love story begins! Jesse came back from LA where he was on the verge of starting his career at a fancy bakery he had worked his life for … he came back after his mom died and his functioning alcoholic father lost his handle on his life, handle he never really had had … Harlow is a single mother who never knew her father, who was completely alone in the world except for her son …
This story tells the story of families, a story of how we define a family … it is a story of dreams and how the dreams change … it is filled with laughter and love and fear and determination and … and I want to know Gabe and Angel and Dino and Jeanette’s stories as well so I will go back and read books 1 and 2 AND I hope that Desiree will give us more of the Glass City Hearts’ stories!

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!

Stars:4

This is the third story in the Glass City series. The story focuses on Jesse and Harlow. They were a great couple to read about. Jesse tries to help out and is incredibly sweet. Harlow is strong, determined female character. Harlow’s little boy sound so sweet, a bit rotten, and a whole lot of funny. I really enjoyed reading this story, and loved seeing other characters from this series in this story.

Desiree Lafawn has done it again with a great addition to the Glass City Hearts Series. Jesse is book three in the series and all about Jesse. If you read the previous two stories (which I hope you did) you remember Jesse from when Angel was kidnapped. This story hit a few spots with me it’s main focus in on Harlow who’s a struggling single mom with a crappy past. Jesse is about struggles, moving forward and new beginnings. As you read the story you know something is going to happen you just aren’t sure in what way and then it does and you feel relieved that it finally happened and you can relax. There’s a slow steady build up, then the climax, and a nice clean ending. The previous characters are in the story and play significant roles especially Dino with his big bad self.

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!!

Jesse is the 3rd book in the Glass City Hearts series by Desiree Lafawn. I was unaware that there were 2 book before this one but this did not affect my enjoyment or understanding of this book as each can be read as a standalone, although the same characters are present in each book. I would suggest reading them all as, if the 3rd book is anything to go by then I’m sure the first 2 will be equally as awesome and I’ll be sure to read them in the future.
This is the story of Jesse and Harlow. Jesse is running his dad’s bar after the death of his mother. Harlow is a single mum whose son (amusingly also called Jesse but is shortened to JJ) pees on Jesse when he’s caught short on the way to his mum’s job interview.
There is instant chemistry between Jesse and Harlow. This is a really heartwarming romance. Harlow hasn’t let any guy near her following her disastrous relationship with JJ’s dad and she’s too busy concentrating on getting a job to have a better life for her and JJ.
I’m a total sucker for an adorable kid in a book and I can say whole heartedly that JJ is a total scene stealer. He is just the most awesome kid and you can’t help but fall in love with him from the very first chapter.
This is one of those romance stories that make you all warm and fuzzy inside and I’d totally recommend it to others.
