{Blog Tour + Review + Giveaway} Knowing Jack by Rachel Curtis

I am not a slut, although I’ve been called one often enough. Yeah, I spent three months screwing one of my college professors, but I was crazy about the guy. Then he broke up with me.

I am not a bitch, although people like to say I am. I kept our relationship secret. I’m not responsible for telling the university administrators about it, but a lot of students still blame me for getting their favorite professor fired.

I am not a drama queen, although everyone thinks I am now. When I got a few nasty messages, I just deleted them. When I got the threat, I assumed it was someone being stupid. I still think that’s all it was. My parents worry, though, so they hired me a bodyguard. Now Jack follows me around, intimidating everyone who approaches me and looking obnoxiously hot.

This is what I am. I’m Chloe. I’m a twenty-year-old art history major. Kind of shy, although I pretend not to be. Stubborn enough to stay here for my senior year, even though everyone hates me.

And I’m stuck with Jack.

He calls me “Princess,” but I’m not a princess either.

For this review, a bit of a different format. Without further adieu My Top 10 Reasons To Read Knowing Jack:
  1. The top 10 lists. Chloe is fond of Top 10 lists, we get "top 10 reasons not to screw your college professor" and "top 10 things to avoid if you're trying not to lust after your bodyguard" as well as a few more. Loved them!
  2. Chloe's supportive, caring parents who care enough to get Chloe a bodyguard.
  3. Steamy love scenes. Lots of steamy love scenes.
  4. Forgiveness. Forgiving others. Forgiving yourself. Being able to move forward.
  5. The alpha male. Who doesn't love a delicious alpha male? Jack certainly is. Powerful, protective, controlled.
  6. Chloe. Smart. Stubborn. Confused. She learned a lot about herself, about what she wants, what she deserves. That it's okay not to be perfect.
  7. Jack. For seeing Chloe who she really is, not who she pretends to be. For calling her on her crap. For protecting her, for standing up for her.
  8. And Jack's also #8 because of the things he says:
    "You are mine. Your perfect little body, and your amazing mind, and your stubborn courage, and your tender heart are all mine." (eARC, location 2601)
  9. The interludes that give us Jack's POV. Love reading the guy's POV especially since this guy isn't in a habit of sharing.
  10. The man-fast. Chloe's on a man-fast (and has a top 10 list about it!) I smiled every time she mentioned her man-fast.
    "A fast - except on men instead of food. I've found them to be nothing but trouble, so I'm not going to date anyone this year." (eARC, location 1264)
Would have liked more... background. More of Jack. His past, his relationships with his parents. Who he is. And that ending? What happens next?
