As the rising star in Houston, Daniel has found fame as Captain of his Pro soccer team and the city’s most eligible bachelor. Daniel has everything – except someone special – and that suits him just fine. He doesn’t want, or need, complications.

 

Quincy has baggage, and lots of it. After a tragic accident spins her world on its axis, she finds herself as a single mother, raising a newborn nephew she never knew she had. Between parenthood, her full-time job, and dealing with the suffocating grief of losing her sister, every day is a struggle. 

 

When they begin to cross paths unexpectedly and often, an unlikely friendship starts to evolve. Feelings change. Lines get crossed. What happens next surprises them both…

 

Before they know it– they’ve been Juked.

My Review : 

 

Thank you so very much Enticing Journey Book Promotions for sending me a copy of Juked! I’m very honored and grateful!! 🙂

4.5 Life can change in an instant Stars!!

After having read the sysnopsis for this book I was instantly curious and when it popped up on my Kindle I picked it up instantly. It was so heartwarming, sad, sweet, frustrating, and steamy. I loved that there was a little bit of everything in this story and even though it dealt with serious situations it was light in various ways. Not once was there a dull moment and I really enjoyed that things took time in this book not rushed. It was a very unique concept and I could not get enough of the two main characters! In my opinion both of them having their very own point of view added more depth to things and it was easier to understand what was going on in their minds. I’m looking forward to pickling up more of Ms.Carter’s books in the future! 🙂

 
Quincy Watson was a character that was a hairdresser who lost her sister and was trying her best to adjust to life as a single mother to her baby nephew. She was so selfless and really cared about others. I adored her sense of humor and how she didn’t take crap from others. Not once was I annoyed by her or her actions. In my opinion she stepped up to the plate and showed what love is all about when it comes to family. I crossed my fingers throughput that everything would work out for her and her nephew Chance.

 

Daniel Zavaro was a character who was a Captain of a professional soccer team. He was totally a ladies man who always wanted no strings attached. During the beginning I didn’t really care for him nor his player side. As things progressed his character showed a lot of growth and add him being a sweetheart completely won me over. I could have smacked him the face a few times for the way he acted in certain parts. I loved his relationship with his family and how close they were. All I could do is hope he’d stop listening to his fears and not break Quincy’s heart.

 

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that’s full of moments that will leave you smiling, laughing, and maybe even crying. It takes a whole new direction on single motherhood and how a child changes your life in more ways than one. I have a greater appreciation for every single parent out there who are raising their kid/kids by themselves. It only takes one moment for your life to change drastically and this story made me realize that the best things in this world are the unexpected moments. It’s truly such a beautiful story. If you haven’t already One-Click Juked today! 4.5 Stars all around!! 🙂

“I hope you don’t mind,” she says, changing subjects and breaking the tension. “Before you called, I was going to catch up on Outlander. I’m several episodes behind.”


“Fine with me,” I say. “I’m used to those soft-porn shows.”

“Soft-porn shows?”

“You know… Outlander, Game of Thrones, True Blood. Soft porn.”

She scoffs at me. “We’re watching Starz, Daniel, not pay-per-view.”

I lean back and put my feet up on the coffee table. “Baby, the only difference between Starz and porn is that actual porn doesn’t have a plot or as big a budget.”

She rolls her eyes. “Whatever. Soft porn,” she grumbles under her breath. She picks up the popcorn and puts it on the couch between us.

I snap up a handful and toss some in my mouth as the review of the last episode plays and the credits roll.

Adult language. Adult situations. Brief nudity.

That’s what the parental ratings warn us of. It is so, so wrong.

The first thing that pops up on the screen is a woman on a bed and a man is with her. With his head between her legs for a very long time. And now there’s nipples, lots and lots of nipples. And his head is still between her legs.

“Still trying to convince yourself it’s not high-budget porn?” I joke, trying to break the sexual tension that has sprung up again.

“Oh my god, this is so awkward,” she replies, eyes still on the screen. Her ears turn bright red, which is apparently her version of a blush. She looks so uncomfortable. 

I sip my beer and munch popcorn, ignoring the woody in my pants from imagining that it’s Quincy and me on the screen. When all else fails, insert humor. “Man, he’s really going at it, isn’t he?”

“Would you shut up?” She laughs and smacks my arm. “This is weird enough without you making jokes.”

“Sorry. I’ll just sit here quietly while we watch the non-porn.” She rolls her eyes but smiles anyway.

“Mother, reader, storyteller – ME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.”
