One night with the wrong woman can change your life....

Jack Simon's road to the White House has been a smooth one until a night with the notorious Donovan James becomes a roadblock he can't escape. Suddenly he's America's number one story and it has nothing to do with politics. Jack's tangled with this woman before and knows they're no good together because the only thing they're good for is a four letter word...hurt. He should get on with his life and concentrate on his job. But that's hard to do when the one thing standing in his way, is the one thing he wants the most...

Donovan James, international singing sensation, has made a living singing songs about heartache and pain, two things she grew up on. But it's time to set down some roots and the only man she wants is a man she's all wrong for. A man she's never stopped loving—Jack Simon. They'd had it all once, until they didn't. And yet she can't help but wonder if a second shot together just might be the game changer she needs. Or if old secrets can still ruin the only man she's ever loved...

Scandal is the last thing senatorial candidate Jack Simon needs. But when Donovan James is around that seems to be all there is. Donovan is the only woman that has ever gotten close to Jack but she walked away 5 years ago and he has no plans to let her back in now. This latest installment in the Simon Family series is incredible! It deals with past hurts and secrets and incredible betrayals. This is one I highly recommend to everyone.

Jack Simon is running for the Senate and a scandal is the last thing he needs. When he runs into his ex-girlfriend Donovan James, they hit the tabloids and he is the number one story and not because of the politics. Donovan James is an international singing sensation and has made a living singing about heartache and pain, something she knows all too much about. Lately she has been wanting to settle down and who she wants to settle down with wants nothing to do with her. She thought they had it made, until they didn't anymore. I enjoyed Jack very much. Their relationship is rocky and emotional. Jack is everything a reader wants emotions, mystery, heartbreak, betrayal, and love. I can't wait to read more. Juliana Stone is definitely a fave author and an amazing author!

Second Chance storyline: JACK is the second installment in Juliana Stone’s adult, contemporary The Family Stone romance series focusing on The Family Simon-a spinoff from Juliana’s The Barker Triplets series. This is political candidate and golden boy Jack Simon, and singing sensation Donovan James’s storyline. JACK can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Told from third person perspective, the focus of the storyline is the rekindling of the relationship between Jack and Donovan. Five years earlier, after a heated argument, Donovan walked out of Jack’s life without explanation or reason. In the ensuing time, our couple saw one another once leading the paparazzi to speculate that America’s glamor couple were back on. But Jack despises the very ground upon which Donovan walks, and Donovan knew that to attempt any reconciliation with Jack would mean death to both of their careers. Jack ‘s character has some issues with forgiveness and letting go of the past. His hurtful words and actions border dangerously on emotional abuse and in this I took issue with behavior. Donovan has never stopped loving Jack and walking away was the only thing she could do to save both of their careers. Although Jack is not aware of the circumstances, his attitude left something to be desired. The relationship between Donovan and Jack is angry, hurt-filled and volatile. Jack has never forgiven Donovan for walking away, and Donovan has not been able to reveal the truth about what happened years before. Our couple will find themselves on a secluded island in Belize, where it is hoped, by well meaning but interfering family members that Jack and Donovan will get back together. The $ex scenes were limited, as our couple struggled with their relationship throughout most of the story but there was definite sexual chemistry and tension. The engaging, colorful and energetic supporting characters include most of the Simon siblings, cousins as well as a cameo by the Simon family elders Noah and Eden. We are introduced to Jacks’ nosey but enlightened neighbor as well as Simon’s best friend Derek whose intentions are questionable, at best. The Simon family reminds me a little of the Kennedy Clan-similar numbers, fame and family issues. I did have one concern-it is never revealed who leaked the background story, and in this, we never learn who was responsible or if anyone has paid for their ‘crimes’. JACK is an emotional second chance storyline; a story of betrayal and friendship; love and understanding; acceptance and letting go. JACK is also a story about family differences and different families. Juliana Stone writes a passionate and emotional storyline that will have you reaching for the tissues.
