"CAN YOU HEAR THAT EAR-PIERCING SOUND?!?! That is me screaming because ALL THAT JAZZ by Natasha Boyd is finally coming and it is available for pre-order!!!" ~ Natasha Tomic, Natasha is a Book Junkie Blog
There's something totally inconvenient about falling for your best friend's brother. Especially when he's turned into a pompous, arrogant, albeit annoyingly sexy a-hole that you'd like to punch or kiss to death at any given moment.
Jazz Fraser learned her lesson early on that men can't be trusted to stick around. First her father, and then her first love. Finally over her childhood infatuation with Joey Butler, her best friend's brother, she's looking forward to the end of college and fulfilling her dream of travelling the world. She's determined that experiences and relationships wil be fun, casual and easy. But when her best friend gets herself into a relationship with a celebrity, Jazz has to do the one thing she never thought she'd do, call Joey and ask for help.
Joey Butler is determined not to hold anyone back. Least of all his sister's best friend. And one thing he knows is that he's never been as attracted to someone as he is to Jazz Fraser. Even though she presses his buttons and drives him crazy. He just has to keep hiding it. He knows she deserves better than him. Her free gypsy spirit and her talent should be shared with the world, not be shackled to a small town guy. He saw firsthand what being married to his father did to his mother, and no matter how much he wants her, he'll never do that to Jazz.
Repeatedly thrown together, Jazz tries everything she can to protect her heart and not fall back in love with Joey. But when Joey finally admits that Jazz is the one he's always wanted, all bets are off.
People who have read Eversea will know Jazz, Keri Ann's best friend, already from that book (and its sequel). I've always loved Jazz. She's really a riot and made me laugh a lot in this book. So I'm very happy to have read her and Joey's story. We also find out what happened between them three years ago, which was probably my favorite part to read.
As I'm used to now with a book by Natasha Boyd, this one also packed quite the emotional punch. There were quite a few sad and tearjerking moments but that's what makes this book all the more real for me.
And Joey! Oh my gosh! I don't want to say I love him more now than Jack Eversea but eh, he comes very close to it. I absolutely loved him and Jazz together, even though it took them a while to get there.
It was also very nice to see some appearances of Keri Ann and Jack, of course. Even in the scenes that took place before Jack had entered Keri Ann's life.
Overall, All that Jazz by Natasha Boyd was such a great read. I laughed, cried and barely put my Kindle down. It's one of those books that give me all the right emotions and feels!
