Publisher's Summary

It was a mismatch made in heaven: innocent girl from the boonies moves in with tattooed, pierced, bad-boy engineer.

I came up with a bet, a plan to tutor her in math and coach her through her phobias. What I wasn't betting on was becoming addicted to her.

But I was living a double life on weekends, and once she found out about it, she'd be gone.

I had to protect myself, and that meant one thing: I couldn't fall in love.

Author's note: This is not an exact retelling of Jake Undone. While pivotal scenes from Jake Undone are retold from Jake's point of view, Jake Understood is its own story that includes all-new material from both the past and present time where Jake Undone left off.

    "Loved this!"

    I already loved Jake Undone and now I adore this book from Jake's perspective too! The story is complex enough to draw you right in and keep you hanging on the words. Excellent narration also makes this an audiobook worth listening to.

    Story
    "Beautiful Ending"

    In all fairness the author did warn us that this story parallels book 1, so I'm trying not to judge so much on that. Because is sure does. It was definitely a hard read in the beginning because it was so much the same as book 1. Any hangups I had were completely squashed when I got to the end. The end is what made this book. Talk about an HEA (phenomenal).

    Hearing the story from Jake's side just added more beauty and heart into an already heart warming story.

    Story
    "Prefer the other version"

    Perhaps the series should have just stuck without this 2.5. I thought it would be neat to see Jakes point of view but it is basically just a retelling of events without any insights that would truly make it Jakes perspective. Nice attempt but not needed. I fast forwarded the entire novel because I had listened to the first Jake novel twice already. It does add a nice extra chapter to their lives but really it could have just stayed where it was. Oh well. I still loved the series.

    "Another Great Read!"
    Any additional comments?

    I laughed and I cried! What a great story. Both books told such a wonderful story, and I loved that it went beyond the normal time line into their future! They were truly destined to be together!

    Story
    "Love these characters and I want more of them!"
    What made the experience of listening to Jake Understood the most enjoyable?

    The narrators were terrific for this story. You could tell that they weren't just reading words from the page. It seemed as if they understood the characters and the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jake Understood?

    At the end in the elevator.


    Which character – as performed by Brian Pallino and Felicity Munroe – was your favorite?

    I really enjoyed them both equally!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was so nice to see the whole gang back together. I definitely thought it was great to see Nina finally accept Ivy and the reasons that Jake needed to follow through on his promise.


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the best stories and audiobooks that I've experienced.

    "Great audio book!"

    I listened to both Jake books by Ms. Ward. Loved them both even though Jake Understood has quite a bit of repeat information from the first book I loved it because it had been a while since I listened to it and everything here is from Jake's POV. Love Jake!
