The origami bats.
The way he helps Nina get over her anxieties.
That he doesn't abandon Ivy.
That he is really funny.
He is sexy as sin.
Some new things to learn but the book is mostly what you already know. Enjoyable. Sweet. Funny. Beautiful Nina.
I am not always a fan of the male POV, i find on most occassions that it really just feels like a retell of the story and doesn't give nothing extra because as a reader you are aware of most of whats being felt. So First off i have to say, this is probably the best male POV I have read.
It was captivating right from the start, it pulls you in and does not let you go. The world stops and you enter the life of the AMAZING Jake Green.
"My life started the day she entered it. It would end the day she left it. There is no gap between where i began and she ended. We were ONE."
Things have never been gained easily for either Nina nor Jake, their love had to be fought for, and this insight to Jakes thoughts and feelings threw your emotions in so many directions, things became so clear. I don't want to give too much away, but at times my heart was thumping, the tears were flowing, and the smiles and emotions were embedding themselves. I just could not put this book down. For anyone one who has not read Jake Undone, this book is so amazing.
We read for many reasons, and we love to come across books where the story impacts on us so much we know it will always be with us, we love to know that even with all the struggles and challenges, the fight for love wins. This book has it all !!
oh yeah and Jake will melt your heart!!
I can't recommend this book highly enough !!!
"Mr Bat is so proud of you" THANK YOU Penelope Ward your books just get more amazing !!
Jake Understood is told from Jake's POV. The story begins with Jake worrying abot Nina after they have an argument and Nina leaves claiming to need space and time to think about things. Several hours have passed and Nina still hasn't returned home, little does Nina know that Jake has planned a party for her with friends and family. Two of their really good friends turn up ( I won't say who) whilst Nina is still M.I.A, leaving Jake to explain what happened and why she left which then leads to him telling the story of their past, how they met and everything after.
So in Jake Undone we found out Jake has a secret (and boy was it a doozy)and why he disappeared every weekend to Boston, in Jake Understood we get to see exactly what happens when he goes to see Ivy and how her different episodes effect him and the guilt he feels with every visit. As much as I love Jake and Nina as a couple I couldn't help but feel sorry for Ivy.
I loved everything about this book and couldn't put it down. Ms. Ward is a freaking writing genius and I can't wait to read all future books from this very talented author.
He is SUCH a good person. Infinitely caring and thoughtful – a complete contrast to his tattooed, bad boy looks and reputation.
This novel is set some years after the first book ends, and we get a slight retelling of Jake and Nina’s love story, but mainly from Jake’s POV. The story flits between the present and the past, and we come to a deeper understanding of Jake and his goodness. He’s pretty saintly, I must admit.
Nina is pretty stoic through Jake’s devotion to his care of Ivy, but she doesn’t really comprehend how much until this book. Once she does, she feels humbled by what Jake has been through, and what he still goes through.
I love the connection between Jake and Nina. Their love is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime love. It’s passionate, unwavering, and sometimes pretty desperate. They brought each other alive; they are the air that the other breathes.
Absolutely adored this book and the author made a fantastic job of telling it from Jake’s POV, without completely repeating the story, and giving us so much more to boot.
