***Please note there will be spoilers for Choosing You in this review***
Knowing You is book two in this fantastic series, Jade. I loved reading Choosing You, I was so addicted to it that I needed to find out what happened with Garret and Jade next. Jade’s character is fabulous, with so much potential and need. I love Garret too though and excited to read book three, Loving You.
Jade Taylor is still trying to recover from the drama of Garret Kensington’s father’s relationship rules. Jade is worried that he won’t grow a pair and finally stand up to his father. But with the letter still around, the secret of who her biological father is is still haunting her. Will Jade get rid of the letter?
Garret has discovered a way to get his father to loosen the reins on the couple’s relationship, but at what cost? Garret doesn’t want to pretend any more to date one of the high society girls and takes Jade to a political fundraiser. It is a very Cinderella moment for her, a beautiful dress, Jade’s friend did her hair and makeup and she just felt beautiful and desirable.
Jade isn’t safe alone any more, still being threatened over that letter. Jade is determined to keep it as a reminder that her mother did in fact love her. Frank (her guardian) isn’t well and can’t afford for her to go home for Thanksgiving. Garret’s father suggests Jade stays at their mansion with Garret the whole time. His family are going away, so it will be just the two of them and the chef. What mischief can they get up to?
When Frank has a fall, everything is touch and go for a while. Garret buys plane tickets for them both to check on Frank and in his deliriousness, starts talking about strange things. Can Jade work out if there is any truth to it?
Can they discover who is threatening Jade? Who is her father? Will Jade ever truly be safe? Can Garret and Jade have a normal relationship?
Follow the journey of Garret and Jade’s determination to be together. Watch as they search for pieces of Jade’s puzzled life and try to put them all back together; discover what true love is and no matter the consequences protect each other. This series is so very addictive, I cannot put them down once I start. Jade is such a wonder, so fun but heartfelt and Garret, who can’t love him… I highly recommend this series to all new adult readers, this series has something for everyone.
The Jade Series is a New Adult Romance that follows the relationship of Jade and Garret in their first year of college. In Choosing You, (book 1), Jade and Garret meet on Jade’s first night at Moorhurst College and despite their strong attraction to each other, they’re not allowed to date because of the strict rules that control Garret’s life. In Knowing You, (book 2), Garret breaks the family rules and begins dating Jade. Their relationship grows deeper but issues from Jade’s past complicate matters. Loving You (book 3) shows Jade and Garret growing closer as a couple but also hints at the trouble that lies ahead in Promising You (book 4), in which a new challenge emerges for Garret that could interfere with the future he wants with Jade. Originally, book 4 was the end of the series, but fans wanted to read more about Jade and Garret, so Allie is now in the process of writing Forever You, an all-new, full-length follow-up book to The Jade Series releasing later this spring!
