      Oh how sweet it is to be inside the mind of the beautiful and tortured soul that is Jake Green!! I devour everything that Penelope Ward writes like it’s my last meal, and Jake Undone just made me melt for this man that gives too much for his own good. So when I heard that we’d be getting more of these incredible characters, AND we’d be inside his head for the journey…well, let’s just say getting an ARC of this book made my month!!I knew we would get so much more than just a rehash of t [...]

      3 stars!***Contains Spoilers from Jake Undone!!***A bit disappointed that 70% of the book was just a rehash of Undone except this time, we read it from Jake's POV. There are a few new scenes interspersed with the old ones which didn't really add anything new at all. I didn't think rehashing those scenes were necessary because Jake Undone was great even though most of it was in Nina's POV. I didn't need to read again from Jake's POV. What I really wanted to read about was how they handled the men [...]

      OMG - Amazeballs. I loved EVERYTHING about this book and it was heavenly being back with Jake again. Penelope Ward amazes me each and every time I read one of her books. Jake Understood picks up AFTER the events of Jake Undone as Jake struggles because Nina has walked out on him. There are repetitious chapters, but Penelope delivered them in such a way that they were fresh, and of course, from Jake's POV as well as giving is a hefty dose of new content.My little heart skipped a beat of delight w [...]

      If the book isn't even published, why feel the need to rate it a 1, 2, 3 stars, let alone at all? For the simple fact I LOVED Jake Undone, and don't like that it has any less than 5 stars, I've added a 5-star review. To the haters, please, your grown adults. There's absolutely no need to review a book you have NOT read because you either don't want to wait til it's published, didn't like a completely different book, or are just simply acting like a child. Grow up and act your age! Thanks and hav [...]

      “I hadn’t held anyone like that in years. But never had it felt like this-like home-to me.”I was very privileged and feel very grateful to have received an ARC of Jake Understood and in return I am writing my honest review of this amazing book that was one of my most anticipated books of 2015. Jake Understood is the alternate point of view/sequel to Jake Undone. I was captivated by Jake Green since I met him in Gemini, I could not wait to read his book Jake Undone (Jake #1) and when I foun [...]

      5 "Let it Be" Stars! There are so many aspects of this touching, heartfelt read that I really connected with, that it's hard to distill it down for purposes of a review. Jake's and Nina's story is a truly magical one. A true friends to lovers story, that will genuinely break your heart and show you how to reconstruct it again. Try though they might, even the largest obstacles, can never come close to extinguishing true love. And Jake and Nina certainly had to learn to overcome more than their fa [...]

      “From the day you first walked into my life, you’ve been saving me." Penelope Ward has written a richly detailed, VERRA sexy and emotional story with lots of new material and details.This unputdownable story is told from Jake’s point of view, who is one of my absolute favorite book boyfriends so I devoured every word of this cleverly-written book. It takes a very gifted writer to create a story that includes the most significant facts from another book (JAKE UNDONE) but which also includes [...]

      ☆ I received an ARC via Soluri PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆First we are utterly undone by the woes and delights that are Jake Green. And now we get to get inside his head?! Can life get any sweeter?!Jake Understood is a complimentary companion to Jake Undone told from Jake’s perspective.It was a gooey-goodness of give and take, as we are regaled of his and Nina’s story, from start to end with some inserted scenes and tidbits that we have not witnessed before, as well [...]

      I started reading this before "Jake Undone". I then got "Jake Undone" to fill in the blanks that were skimmed over in this one. (It's not really a standalone). First of all Jake telling all his and Nina's friends the story of how they ended up together was just weird. I could not get into it because it just felt too weird and fake and not at ALL like something that would happen. I felt like I was reading about a slumber party. With kids. So, Nina leaves because she's tired of sharing Jake with I [...]

      Oh.My.Godyou guys! If you thought you loved Jake before you ain't seen nothing yet!!! I was so lucky to win an arc of this book from Penelope, I can't thank her enough!It can be tough going with books rewritten in an alternate point of view, there's always the chance it will be just a rehashing of the same story. But that was not the case with Jake Understood, it was so much more. I love how Penelope Ward set this one up, as if we're there, part of the family, hearing Jake and Nina's story for t [...]

      Normally I get a little frustrated with companion or different POV novels, but I honestly liked this one better than the original in the series. I can’t explain it but I just did. While I still highly recommend that you pick up Jake Undone, because it is a big piece of the puzzle in helping you understand the overall and big picture of the character, this one really helps you see exactly what was going through his mind. This story is even more enthralling and heart breaking for me and I just f [...]

      Penelope Ward you blew me away! There really are no amount of words that you can use to adequately describe this book. Reading this book was bittersweet knowing that this book was the last of the series. I was both sad for it to end because I knew that there would be no more books from this series yet eager for it to end to see how their lives turned out. Penelope did not disappoint. Jake Undone was my first book that I read by Penelope where I met and fell in love with Jake and Nina's love stor [...]

    16. Karlijn on said:

      This was amazing. This book was mostly Jake's POV and some of the events were also in the first book. But that wasn't bothering me at all because from Jake's POV it was different and it was so beautiful to know how he was fighting for Nina and their life. How he was protecting her, don't wanted to hurt her, but also want her so badly.And yes, he felt love for Ivy, but that is different than his feelings for Nina. He is in love WITH Nina and can't live without her. Maybe is doesn't look different [...]

      **arc received from author in exchange for an honest review and blog tour from us book hookers at twounrulygirlsNot an easy task to tell a story that has already been donebut this one was done beautifully, and added a dimension that makes you fall even more in love with Jake. Loved it! Full review closer to release.

      4 Jake-lovin’ starsThis book follows on from Jake UndoneJake Undone, and is part-sequel, part-alternate POV book. It is set 8 years into the future where Jake and Nina are together and living the life they wanted together, but a bad night leads to Nina taking off for the day to get some space, leaving Jake at home. And when friends arrive (Alison & Cedric, Skylar & Mitch), he begins to reminisce about their beginning and how it all started for them.There is a combination of seeing the [...]

      * A review copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review *~ 5 Forever Jake Green Stars ~ AMAZEBALLS!!!!That is really all I can say about this book. Penelope Ward has done it again….She has made me fall in love with Jake and Nina all over again. Penelope has been and will always be one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE authors. She is a drop everything and read whatever she writes author for me. In my mind she can do NO wrong!!! Jake Understood was just amazing!!! I had been anticipat [...]

      5 Moon, Bat & Stars! Penelope doesn't disappoint. I loved it *le sigh * Sometimes as a reader, I have a problem connecting with a book follow up, a '. 5' or something but with Jake Understood, Penelope did an amazing job of retelling Jake and Nina's story in an interesting way and well, it is Jake's POV so I know for sure that it will be a good read!JAKE will always be my favorite (yet, aside feom Cedric and Elec haha) or should I say the first Penelope BBF that really made an impact with my [...]

    21. Jenny Jo Weir on said:

      Good book, not great. I thought it would be better than it was. A little too mushy for me, especially being from the guys perspective. Took me longer to read than most books because I kept putting it down which I hardly ever do but I don't regret reading it. It simply wasn't a favorite as I thought it might be.

    22. Sam on said:

      Oh Jake Green How wonderful to read you again! Reading things from his POV and getting the insight to certain scenes and situations from the first book absolutely rocked my world. From Oragami Bats, Bananas and THAT lip piercing to his ADORATION for his girl! Just PERFECT!! (Full review to come)

    23. Michelle on said:

      I'm completely in love with series. Honestly it's made me laugh, cry, angry and want to smack a bitch a guy lol. Jake is total package this man is God sent. And Nina is definitely an angel to deal with everything life has thrown at her. She also God sent. Together they one. I love them both. This series needs more than 5 stars, it's that good.

    24. Erin on said:

      this could have been a novella 70% was the exact same story and as we got dual POVs in the first book it was boring. After reading this book I believe poor Jake has a bat-shit crazy girl magnet embeded in him

    25. Diane on said:

      I didn't realize that it was overall Jakes POV of the relationship. Really well written and cleaver. Enjoyed!

      5 STARS!I didn't think that I could have fallen more in love with Jake after reading Jake Undone, but I was wrong becauseI DID! This was such a great companion novel, and I am so honored to have received and ARC from Penelope. I have to admit that I am always leery of reading this type of alternate POV novelr fear of disappointment with it being a repeat of the first. HonestlyI was NOT disappointed at all; this was a PERFECT conclusion to an amazing story!In Jake Understood, we really get to see [...]

      does not allow enough stars for this book!I remember when I was younger and I read Sweet Valley High and other books and as I grew older I moved on to other authors but I have to tell you on May 29, 2013 I read a free book from and I believe that Penelope Ward is the first author that left me completely mesmerized after reading a book. I finished Jake Understood last week and it has taken me a few days to actually sit down and write this review because honestly I felt that I needed to get my th [...]

      I’m having a tough time writing this review right now. I’m teary, I’m happy. My heart hurts from feeling the love that is just flowing off the pages between Jake and Nina. Penelope has given us Jake’s point of view of his life and his love for Nina from when he first met her through “today.”Reading Jake’s POV on the pivotal scenes from Jake Undone was my undoing. I loved reading Jake’s take on his mindset from what both he and Nina experienced in their relationship. Told as flash [...]

      We met Jake Green and Nina Kennedy in Jake Undone, released last year by Penelope Ward. Jake and Nina had an instant connection but he couldn't or shouldn't act on his attraction to Nina because of his current complicated situation. We previously got Nina's side of the story in Undone, but in Jake Understood, we get into his thoughts and the other end of the story."I didn't just love her. To me, she was love, was life."I've always loved Jake and Nina's story. It's tragic and beautiful because of [...]

      I had not realised before reading this that it was a recap of Jake Undone written from Jake's point of View. There was a lot of rehashing what had happened in Jake#1, as Jake retells the story of his and Nina's lives from the time they first met.The family are all gathered for a surprise party Jake has thrown for Nina, but for reasons you will find out on reading, Nina herself is not in attendance.A lot of the story was the same, and is interspersed with visits back to the present, but there is [...]
