Mavis always assumed that she would be in a hospital with the good drugs when her time came. Not in the middle of the road, with no one around but the damn town mechanic that hated her.
But there she was, having a rock star’s baby, with no one to rely on but the one that let it be known around every turn that she was a horrible person.
From the time that she met Murphy and became best friends with him at the age of eight, she knew he was destined for greatness.
But then her grandmother fired Murphy’s mom, forcing them to live on the streets, and making Murphy to realize that maybe they weren’t best friends after all.
Murphy loved Mavis.
At least, he had when he was younger, before she betrayed him.
From that moment forward, Murphy goes out of his way to stay the hell away from her, and always makes sure to never get too close. Even though everything inside of him screams to make contact.
When he moves back to town after being gone for five years, he tries his best to stay away.
But there she is at his CrossFit gym. Then having a baby on the side of the road. Oh, and breaking him a little more with each step she takes away.
Eventually, they find their way back to each other. The only problem is, by the time that Mavis makes her way back into his heart, it breaks. And not in a rhetorical way. In the ‘he only has days to live’ kind of way.
I read it in a day. I kept wanting to put it away cause I was so sad and wanted to cry, but then I would keep on reading! I needed the HEA!
An unexpected emotional read!
Jerk It, Madd Crossfit book #2 by Lani Lynn Vale was a phenomenal and an unexpectedly emotional read. Mavis and Murphy have history. They knew each other growing up but were then forced apart. Now back in each other lives they are teetering on cusp of hate and love. I devoured this book. From beginning to end I found it impossible to put down. Every moment shared between Mavis and Murphy I couldn’t get enough of. Their intense chemistry, connection and banter was fantastic and needed more at every turn of the page. Mavis is feisty and fiery and Murphy is a bit hard headed and having difficulty letting go of the past but leave it to Mavis as she doesn’t back down nor will she allow him to push her away. This story is beautifully written but also heartbreaking. Be prepared for an emotional reading experience like no other. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
