    Penelope Ward outdoes herself!

    I've been looking forward to this book but I was both eager and a little worried. Although I love the male point of view, I was worried this story was going to be a retelling of Jake Undone, exclusively from Jake's point of view. Especially since there had been parts from his perspective in Jake Undone, I wasn't sure how Penelope Ward could improve on that, but my fears were completely unfounded. But my fears were completely unfounded. I loved Jake Understood and Penelope Ward did a great job at taking a story many readers knew and turned it into something new and exciting. I loved how this story pulled me in. It was everything I was hoping it'd be. Part of the reason this book was so amazing was being able to experience everything from Jake's perspective. His mind was an interesting place to be. I realized he didn't see Nina's immediate attraction to him, something she was worried was obvious. In fact, he was drawn to Nina almost immediately. So in way, they way they danced around each other was really one long courtship. I loved being able to relive their relationship from the very beginning. Jake Understood contained so much new material, especially in that regard. I particularly loved how the new stuff was mixed in with the old stuff. I got really emotional at parts of this book. As in trying to stop my watering eyes from overflowing while I was public. I would've been a sobbing mess if I hadn't. I loved how I forgot where I was to the point that almost happened. Jake and Nina have faced so many challenges. Their unyielding love for one another is what got them through the tough times. That's inspiring and something I aspire to. That's not to say this book was all sad tears. There were happy tears too and moments of laughter interspersed with smiling. I'm trying really hard to convey how amazing this book is without giving away anything that happens in it. Which is hard, and every time I think of something to say, I realize it might be a spoiler. Which stinks. So basically this is what everything boils down to. This book isn't rehashing a story you've already read in Jake Undone. In fact, it can be read on its own, so for everyone out there who hasn't read Jake Undone, it's perfectly okay to start with this book. There's new elements and aspects that will leave you speechless. It's emotional and powerful and you'll love it like I did.

    Jake understood

    After reading Jake undone, I really got to see Jake in this one. It was very insightful and made me fall in love with Jake and Nina. Beautifully written..
