Jack by Juliana Stone ~ Review

       Jack (The Family Simon #2)


One night with the wrong woman can change your life….

Jack Simon’s road to the White House has been a smooth one until a night with the notorious Donovan James becomes a roadblock he can’t escape. Suddenly he’s America’s number one story and it has nothing to do with politics. Jack’s tangled with this woman before and knows they’re no good together. The only thing they are good for is a four letter word--hurt. He should get on with his life and concentrate on his job. But that’s hard to do when the one thing standing in his way, is the one thing he wants the most…

Donovan James, international singing sensation, has made a living singing songs about heartache and pain, two things she grew up on. But it’s time to set down some roots and the only man she wants is a man she’s all wrong for. A man she’s never stopped loving—Jack Simon. They’d had it all once, until they didn’t. And yet she can’t help but wonder if a second shot together just might be the game changer she needs. Or if old secrets can still ruin the only man she’s ever loved…

My Review

I give Jack 4 stars.

I did not read book one in this series but it's not necessary in order to follow book 2.
Jack is on the political track. The golden boy of the family who's destined for great things.

Donovan's job is singing to crowded stadiums. She grew up poor in a trailer park until her mother realized her talent for singing and got her started at county fairs.

Donovan is Jack's ex. Five years ago she left him via a note.
Seeing her again is not what he expected, she's the last person he wants to be near. She left without explanation and never looked back.
Or so he thinks.
Circumstances bring them back together and over the course of time secrets come to light. The past comes back to haunt Donovan and Jack is faced with a tough decision. Or maybe not.
I don't do spoilers, but if you haven't met the Simon family give this a read, Jack & Donovan's story is full of emotion and strength and very well written.
