Review: #Jerk by Kat T Masen

July 4, 2018

He was that boy in the playground.
The one that pulled your pigtails.
The one that lifted your dress in front of the entire school.
Now he's that guy in the office.
The one that steals your lunch from the fridge.
The one that gets away with everything.
I'm sure you know him. Everyone knows that guy.
He's a #JERK.

 

Presley Malone knew her relationship with her fiancé, Jason, had run its course. 
The second that ring came off her finger, she didn't expect to be the pawn in an immature game played by the office jerk.

 

His name is Haden Cooper, and he is six years younger than her. Immature and irresponsible, getting drunk and stoned every weekend like he never left college. He rode a motorcycle, carrying a different girl each week. He was everything a jerk should be—insensitive, unreliable, and most importantly, a heartbreaker.

 

Haden enjoyed playing games, and when it came to Presley Malone, it was all too easy. Miss Know-it-all with her over-the-top OCD was soon going to get a taste of what it was like to live on the edge. 

 

But what starts off as an innocent prank soon becomes an unhealthy obsession. 

 

He is wrong for her and she is wrong for him. It's a battle of the sexes ready to go to war. But in this battle there are no winners, and it takes only one fateful night and six tequilas for their lives to take an unexpected turn that changes them both forever.

*** 3 Star Review ***

 

This was my first book of Masen's. Who doesn't love a good jerk story? Or a good enemies to lovers story? I don't like them all of the time, but I like to read them from time to time.

 

This one wasn't what I was really hoping for. The jerk aspect didn't come across as Haden being a jerk. Instead it was more of his version of juvenile flirting, most definitely wanting to get the girl. And when it doesn't work, he steps up the game a little too far.

 

The enemies to lovers aspect would have worked much better had the jerk part worked for me. They both try to hard to be enemies. It doesn't seem like a natural progression with enemies, attraction, and then lovers. It felt like a hop scotch game gone wrong. 

 

The story itself was cute. It just wasn't one of those stories that I want to shout over the rooftops about. It was good, but not necessarily great. I needed a little more of angst and a better connection. The characters just didn't do it for me.
