Prom Queen (Bad Boy Homecoming #3) by Katee Robert

My Rating: 5 Stars
Sex Scenes: Yes.
Series: Yes, Bad Boy Homecoming #3.
Subject: Letting go of your past mistakes and embracing happiness.

A high school reunion is about to get down and dirty and a whole lot more complicated in this new erotic romance from NYT Bestselling Author Katee Robert.

Jake Davis had it all in high school—a scholarship to his college of choice, a promising football career, and the gorgeous prom queen for a girlfriend. And then he lost it all when he was injured right after graduation. Ten years later, he’s mostly made his peace with that, and now runs a company that provides women with dates for special events. Imagine his surprise when he discovers that the ex who left him in the dust needs a fake boyfriend for their high school reunion…

Jessica Jackson used to be the mean girl to end all mean girls. But life didn’t turn out like she’d thought it would, and now she’s twenty-eight, single, and works as an insurance agent to A-listers instead of being the A-lister like she’d always dreamed. She can’t go back to her home town and admit just how thoroughly she’s failed, so she lets her friends set her up with a fake date for the reunion.

The second Jessica realizes that her fake date is Jake, she tries to call the whole thing off. The problem is the chemistry between them is even hotter now than it was when they were teenagers. Against her better judgment she lets herself get drawn into Jake’s arms again—and into his bed. But time doesn’t heal all wounds—sometimes, it actually makes them worse—and if Jessica and Jake can’t learn to forgive each other, their second chance might not last the weekend. 

Second book I read on this series and they keep getting better!

This is Jake and Jessica's story and like the last book they had something happen in the past that destroyed their relationship, but the Reunion has put them back in the same path and there's no way they can avoid each other now.

Jake's motives weren't pure at first, he acted as if he wanted revenge, but after he sees her everything changes, he realises that she is not the same girl he once knew, and he also knows there is no way he can stay away from her.

Jessica appeared to be a mean girl back in the day, and we definitely don't like her type, but as the story develops we understand that maybe she was acting out because she was hurting. She is a different person now and she is scared to death of facing all the people she wronged, although the one thing that scares her the most might be unavoidable for her.

Getting in touch with old feelings is a hard thing to do, and it's worse if those feelings were never quite gone to begin with. 

We get to see these two characters get reacquainted and find out that true love withstands time and there are a few things it can't forgive.

The reunion will reveal all of their secrets, and once their facades are dropped they will have to make the choice of running or going all in.
