Kennedy Cross had her heart broken early in life. It wasn't someone or something who betrayed her—it was her own body. Despite it being all she’s ever wanted, Kennedy will never know what it feels like to feel her baby’s feet kick from the inside out. Having been pronounced infertile at only eighteen, she redirected her life the best way she could.
Eight years and a degree later, Kennedy is one of the most well-loved first-grade teachers at Rock Falls Elementary School. It doesn’t matter that her college boyfriend left her because he wanted children of his own. She has twenty-two of the most gorgeous six-year-olds who adore her and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Jackson Steele deals only in extremes. He falls victim to manic episodes lasting for days, sometimes weeks at a time, sending him reeling from volatile highs to devastating lows. It’s a living hell just being inside his own mind, and that hell has taken everything he’s ever loved away from him. But what if, this time, it gives him something? An untimely gift from God and a brunette with legs eight miles long will bring him the most unforeseen joy but also his most challenging of tests.
What happens when circumstances of life threaten the one thing both Jackson and Kennedy love? Saving Steele from himself may prove to be too much for Cross to bear.
I thought Braxton was my favorite Rock Falls alpha but I think Jackson just took that title away! Anne Jolin had my emotions all over the place reading this. One minute I was laughing out, the next I was smiling at sweet Jackson, and the next I'm crying like a baby. I love that Anne Jolin gave, not only Kennedy and Jackson's perspective, but also Ryker's too! I didn't want this book to end!
I will be in 'Swoon City' for weeks after reading. I am a HUGE Anne Jolin fan. All of her books touch me and make me have a book hangover after reading. Saving Steele is of course no different.
It is very rare that I find a book that the prologue has me tearing up already. Anne's writing touches you and grips you into the story straight away and doesn't let go throughout the whole book. Saving Steele takes you on a rollercoaster of emotions and doesn't let go until it ends.
Jackson Steele and Kennedy Cross made each other better and helped through each others issues. Ryker was adorable and you fall in love with him instantly. There was no crazy back and forth drama between the couple, it's simply their story of falling in love.
Definitely a easy page turner and you won't want to put it down. You will be wishing it was a bit longer just so you could stay in the Jackson/Kennedy/Ryker bubble.
