R E V I E W ➠ Jerk It by Lani Lynn Vale
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.

Not my first read by the author or last, I do really enjoy Lani’s books because to me they are like no other writing style. This NEW series got me hooked now and I am pretty sure Lani is trying to kill us with this one!
okay update, Lani did try and kill us via emotions on this one. I cried my eyes out so hard, I couldn’t stop. Absolutely LOVED this, it was raw, real and sweet. Emotional to the core, have tissue because no matter who you are, you will be balling your eyes out like I did. I would totally torture myself and re-read this again just for it.
I really don’t want to ruin or spoil this so I will give a shorter review, because this is so worth diving into from beginning to end. These two are enemy-to all through but deep down the love they have for one another, is unreachable. When push comes to shove, they are always there for one another. And the life adventure they go through alone and together were painful. I loved them, even if my heart felt like it was going to burst. Can’t wait for more!
