Review: Jaked by Sabrina Stark Book 1 in Jaked Series.
Wow! What a ride!!! A novel that gives you twists, turns, dark moments, funny moments, lustful feelings, nail biting intrigue, steam and a drop dead dark handsome alpha hero. On top of all this a cliffhanger that makes you want to hunt down the author and short sheet her bed.
Sabrina Stark is a new to me author and I think I have fallen in love. Now I must mention I did have book 2 ready to go so the cliffy didn't make me as crazy as it did other readers. I also like to be kept guessing so I enjoyed having to wait for some of my questions to be answered until book 2, it gave me a reason to run out and one click it right away.
Sabrina Stark is a skilled writer who uses a lot of writing techniques to get her message across. In a story line that has some severely dark elements it is laced with humor that had me putting the pillow over my mouth so I wouldn't wake the hubby. Luna was so flaky at times she just made me laugh. However, the way the intrigue is as much a character in the story as the relationship between Jake and Luna was ingenious, the whole of this novel we are asking ourselves questions and just waiting for the answers. SS taunted us with bit and pieces but never gave us enough to actually figure out what exactly was going on. Jaked was more about the building of the relationship between Jake and Luna and taking us back to when they originally met as children. I'm sure book 2 will be more about solving mysteries and answering questions.
I admit it has been a while since I was completely enraptured by a new to me author. Sabrina had me in the palm of her hand throughout the entire book. I can't wait for the next novel...in fact I will dive into it immediately. I have to give this novel a bright 4.25 star rating and a recommendation. If you are looking for something a bit on the different side and yet using familiar elements with a side of grit this is definitely the book for you. Remember if you don't want to get caught by the cliffy have book 2 cued up and ready to go. Now get those fingers one clicking and tell Jake that t'irla sent you!!!
