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.
Jackson Steele is swoon-worthy
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
Jackson Steele has his friends and his parents and a booming business. When he least expected it, his life was turned upside down not just once but twice within a short time. He is happier than he's ever been.
Kennedy Cross loves her life, her very organized life. Teaching children is her passion until the day an adorable new student and his sexy father find their way into her life. All she can think about is how he makes her feel and how she can spend more time with them.
This is the 5th book in the Rock Falls Series by Anne Jolin. Each book can be read as a standalone but the characters from the other books make appearances.
As with the other books in this series, I loved this book. Jackson Steele is amazingly swoon-worthy, his actions, his words, the whole package. Kennedy Cross is sweet and pure and a little sassy. The writing of this book is engrossing and captivating. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen but I also wasn't ready for it to end.
Wow!! This is my first book from this author and what a what to find another new author to read. I certainly will be looking for the other books in the series.
Kennedy wanted children and at an early age comes to find out that she can not have them due to a medical condition so she decides to become a teacher and has a room full of them. She has become the most well loved and respected first grade teacher.
Jackson has manic episodes and his mind sends him over the edge to dark places. He can have these episodes from a day to weeks at a time. When this happens he uses sex and alcohol to cope. When he come out of these episodes he doesn't remember anything usually. Suddenly Jackson finds he has a son (Ryker) that he didn't know about and he finds that now having Ryker helps him to stay out of the dark.
Kennedy and Jackson meet when he enrolls Ryker in first grade and the sparks start flying between them. Jackson becomes afraid in case he has more episodes but he can't stay away from Kennedy.
Will Kennedy help Jackson or send him into the dark and will she let him take her to the heights of love, romance and the prospect of being a mother?
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.
