It’s been three years since Jasmine Ashcroft got her innocent heart skewered by her teenage crush, singer Jonathan Fox. Since then, she’s had plenty of time to grow up. To get over him. To move on. Or so she thinks…
Jonathan Fox has been burned by love. Again. Now he’s ready to jumpstart his career and become the most Eligible Rock Star in Town. Which town? All of them. While he tours the world, he’ll also play the field. Or so he thinks…
Jasmine and Jonathan’s paths are about to cross in an unlikely place. For once, the timing is right: Jasmine wants someone to rock her lonely nights. Jonathan wants someone who can keep up with his wild life. But when regret and unrequited desires collide, the resulting firestorm of emotion might be too much for them to handle. Or so they think…
**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
I started Give in to the Night immediately after finishing A Million Miles Away and was really looking forward to continuing Jasmine and Jonathan’s story. I devoured the first book, and had really high hopes for this sequel! My first thoughts after reading the blurb for this book was that it seemed like it would be more emotionally driven and we would finally get to see the characters explore their feelings for each other. Jasmine is older now, so there’s nothing standing in their way. Right? I got the impression that this one would be a little bit steamier than the previous book. I was looking forward to a really fun story that was a bit sexier this time around. I had a feeling, also, that Give in to the Night would be a bit of a nail biter, because I definitely wanted a happily ever after for these two.
This book starts us off three years later and I was hoping that we would find Jasmine more mature and we definitely did. In the time that passed, she really came into her own and it was great to see. So from the very start, this book starts off with a BANG. I was sucked in from the very first page. I’ll admit, I panicked a little bit during those first few pages, and felt like a big dummy when I realized what was really going on. Palm, meet face.
Kit is feeling cagey and restless, ready to get back into the music scene. He’s experiencing relationship problems, and is in a bit of a crossroads in his life, when an old home video reminds him of the one girl that got away. It stirs up old feelings and, for someone who adamantly believes in having “no regrets,” he finds he does have one– letting Jasmine go. We get to see a lot more from his perspective this time around and I really loved the insight we got into his mind and feelings.
Jasmine is also at a crossroads. She had a blast in Rio and definitely gained some life experience and has matured greatly, but she’s in a funk now that she’s back in the states. She’s looking to spice things up and she just might do something completely out of character to get some excitement back into her life. Some of my favorite characters from the first book also make an appearance. Martin and Silver (LOVE) played a pretty big role in this novel and loved them just as much this time around.
I won’t go too much more into the story, because I don’t want to spoil anything, but I think everyone will be pleased with the ending! This one definitely was a bit more emotional, as expected, and had its fair share of drama. Although I was happy with the ending, there’s definitely more to come from these characters and I can’t wait for book three. This is a series that I will be seeing through to the very end and I’m very happy to have had the opportunity to review it. It is definitely a series that I would recommend!
The Angel Interceptor series was conceived as the sun was setting on Hair Metal, born during the early days of fictionpress, and came of age in 2013 when the author finally worked up the nerve to try self-publishing. All of Elizabeth’s works are dedicated to the men who play Metal and the women who love them, even though they should know better. She pinkie swears to stay far away from insta-love, cheating, and nausea-inducing baby drama.
