Blurb:
As a kid, Logan Preston was a brat.
Through his teens, he became the bad boy.
Now, at nineteen, no one knows what the hell to expect.

High school dropout, Logan Preston is a
good-for-nothing stoner.
A black sheep.
A disappointment.
The worst Preston Punk of the lot.
At least that’s how everyone in his small town
makes him feel.
But Logan Preston has secrets.
Secrets so dark and so deep below the surface that the only way he can fight them is to stay high, high, high.
He wears cockiness as a mask.
Arrogance as his armor.
Until one girl, one night, asks one life-changing question:
What’s beneath the bravado, Logan Preston?

My Review:
Wow, what an incredibly moving, incredibly powerful story and one that is virtually impossible to put down. I stayed up until the early hours of the morning the last two nights reading this book and it was so hard to put down. I felt the full gamut of emotions with Logan, and I laughed, cried, felt heartbroken, disappointed, and was thoroughly destroyed when the full extent of what had happened to him became obvious. And poor Aubrey – her heartache was mine too, and I was right there on the kitchen floor with her, devastated and ruined.

Every time I pick up one of Jay’s books I think “this is her best yet” and this book is no exception. This is raw, gritty, and very real and I think the writing, pacing, character and plot development are exquisite. The scenes toward the end were Logan totally loses it were so hard to read but so gripping – my heart was in my mouth and I was equally sad and horrified and screaming at him to just stop.

It’s been a long while since I’ve wanted to reread a book again the minute I finished it, but that’s what I’m feeling with this one, because I want to go back and savor the sublime execution of the story.

It’s not all heavy though and it’s peppered with Jay’s signature witty style and the banter between our couple is very funny, especially Aubrey’s take on dirty talk, lol. The romance and sexy times are also incredible and I love the bond and the chemistry between our pair and I believed in them as a couple, and was completely rooting for them.

I have the worst book hangover now and I know I’ll definitely have to reread it straight away because I’m not ready to let go yet.

I adored the More Than series, and loved Lucas, but this book tops them all, and now these Preston Punks are up there with my favorites. I’m hoping the next book is about Leo and Melissa and that we don’t have to wait too long because I need another Preston fix pronto!

Thanks for another incredible read, Jay.
