Title: Made for You (Cole #2) [Goodreads][Amazon]
Author: Vi Keeland
Release Date: July 1, 2013
In My Opinion: Add to cart!
One Line: A nice sequel to a steamy romance that definitely had me falling even harder for Jack Cole!
About the Book: Jack and Syd spent a week in paradise. It was only supposed to be a fling. But life can be funny sometimes, and circumstances brought them back together again. Together they seemed to have found their happy ever after. But when Sydney is offered a chance at the career she has always wanted, she must leave Jack behind to follow her dreams. Can their love survive long distance? Sydney’s touring with a man every woman wants, but he only has eyes for Syd. And an unexpected tragedy leaves Jack feeling remorseful. Can the two find a way through to forever?
After being swept away by Belong to You, I was eager to read Made For You and see how things are going with Jack and Sydney. Even though the setting isn’t quite as romantic and dreamy as Hawaii, Europe is just as awesome and there was one scene where Jack and Syd take a lovers getaway that is so sweet, romantic, and steamy; I just loved it. Vi entertained me yet again with these characters and I loved that I was flying through the pages with ease.
Jack and Syd’s relationship gets put to the test as she travels for her tour with a guy who happens to be in love with her. With the story as a whole, I liked the fact that Syd is chasing her dream, rediscovering her passion in life, and learning to do things outside her comfort zone. Probably the only thing that bugged me was how she tiptoed around Jack sometimes, because she didn’t want to upset him or do things he didn’t approve of. I kind of wanted her to have her own mind, be more independent, but she wasn’t as bad as some other female protagonists I’ve read about. Jack is still as sexy as ever, even if he is a bit possessive. Some times he bordered that line from sexy to annoying when it came to his possessiveness, but luckily I was never turned off from him. I liked how he took care of Syd, how he was always able to read and just get her so easily, but also how he gave her space and freedom to do what she wanted.
Made For You is a great sequel and I loved diving back into Jack and Syd’s romance. Sienna was just as awesome in this book as the first, too. I really want to see a book about her. The ending was very sweet and totally had me all smiles for them. Vi definitely knows how to write a fun and interesting story with plenty of smexy times between memorable characters and I look forward to reading more books from this author.
