Provided by Net GalleyFollow us at www1rad readerreviewscom Dropped at 28%I expected to read thirty year old characters and I got three year old ones Not worth the headache Ieel coming trying to make sense of this mess Review originally posted here I had some mixed eelings about the irst book in this series I was intrigued enough by both Jerry and Karen to give this book a tryJerry just signed a deal as the Ace pitcher of the Detroit Rockets but Theoretical Anxiety and Design Strategies in the Work of Eight Contemporary Architects for some reason his game starts to suffer He and his coaches can tigure out what the problem is as he hasn t changed anything with his pitching arm The only thing in Jerry s live that has changed is Karen While he proposes a riends with benefits type situation little does he realize just how important Karen is to him than than just a naked buddyKaren knows that she could all in love with Jerry but she is determined to keep her heart safe behind the wall she built up years ago She isn t willing to risk her The Psychopharmacology of Herbal Medicine feelings so she struggles with her relationship with Jerry in whateverorm it takes But as things go south in their relationship Karen realizes that perfection isn t possible but they come pretty damn closeWhile I thought this book started off strong it really went downhill Psychopharmacology of Herbal Medicine for me Itelt like Shaw was trying to add in so many different threads that I Six felt like the plot got a bit bogged down with everything that was going on I really wish she would haveocused a bit on one or two aspects of the plot instead of throwing multiple different tropes into the book making it a little convoluted to ollow toward the endAlthough I liked Karen s carefree attitude in the irst book she came across as a bit of a bitch in this one She was so hurt and let down by her past that she really let that color her view of the present She would constantly lie to herself and refuse to see the truth so that she wouldn t have to Lady Janes Nemesis face theact that she and Jerry were in a relationship While I could understand where she was coming A Texas Rangers Family (The Stone Family from in the beginning her reluctance to be an adult really started to get on my nerves as the book continued Especially since she used her attitude and history as a way to constantly push Jerry away She needed to do a hell of a lot groveling than she didThankfully Jerry was a better character in my opinion He wasun and didn t take life too seriously Yet when times got tough Racialization, Crime, and Criminal Justice in Canada for him he tried to deal with it in the best way possible and never tried to just shove his head in the sand and waitor opportunities to pass him by I liked that about Jerry Even when he was seriously knocked down he gave himself some time to throw a pity party but then he dove back into whatever he needed to do to better himself In that regard he was a damn good heroThe romance however Computers fell prettylat I don t know if my Before You feelings toward Karen colored their relationship a bit but I thought she was extremely immature and childish in the way she treated Jerry I really wanted her to buck up and act like an adult well before she did and the one steporward two giant leaps back romance just didn t work A History of the Guyanese Working People, 1881-1905 for meAll in all I wasn t super impressed with the second book in the Men of the Show series I would have liked to see Karen s character grow a lot sooner in the book than she did because she childish ways really started to bother me While I liked Jerry as a hero he wasn t enough to overcome the heroine and the romance that Ielt needed emotional development and less physicalI give The Ace a Passionate sleepovers soon turn into long romantic evenings Still Karen and Jerry refuse to acknowledge they’re a couple Karen insists that she’s immune to Jerry’s heart melting charm Jerry’s not ready to settle down Denial is the name of the game until one pitch changes everythi.
