Lennon's Jinx by Chris Myers - Book Review

Sometimes, you don’t get to choose who you fall for...

Lennon spends most of his time raising his little sister Currie while trying to skate through his senior year of high school. He prefers groupies with no-strings attached but finds himself strangely attracted to Jinx, the straight-A student in his choir.

Jinx conceals the black truth about herself from her friends. She won’t admit to them that she screwed up big time, losing her first love and what she once held most precious. When Jinx joins Lennon’s band to nurture her love of music and ease the guilt gnawing away at her, she witnesses Lennon battling his infamous father. While confronting his pent-up anger at his dad, Lennon exposes vulnerabilities he had no intention of letting Jinx ever see. Their reckless pasts may bring them together or further complicate their messy lives.

Lennon's Rain (Lennon's Girls #2) - 4 Stars

Lennon might be a man-whore, but he had spent a lot of his time taking care and raising her little sister, Currie while trying to finish his senior year in high school. So, you might want to hate him, a whole lot – but you can’t. Because this man might bed any girl and wants to stay out of commitment but at the end of the day, he’s a doting brother to a sister he raised by himself.

Jinx prefer to be nonchalant about the bruises on her arms, or the fact that she’s still hung-up on her ex Zach. She was her first love, and she had loved him with all her heart. But something happened that she has no control of – and rather than telling him the truth, she opted not to. She screwed what amazing thing they have.

She hated Lennon and everything that he represents. How could girls go after this guy?! What could they possibly see in him? The moment she joins his band – and saw him in a different light, things started to change. She had seen his talent, his vulnerability, his great love for his sister, his problems at home and his fight with his father.

Both may be different from each other, but they have one thing in common – both of them had baggage to carry at such a young age. I hate to see them lose their childhood and grow up faster than the rest of their peers.

Besides these two complicated characters, my heart went to two young girls: Zoe and Currie. I would have never guessed their age. They seemed too wise for their age. I just want to give the two of them a warm, tight hugs. They were the heart of the story.

What I like about this story is that the romance didn’t happen all so sudden. Their relationship grew from enemies, to friends, then down to love. It was great watching how their love story unfold before my eyes. But because both of them have baggage, we are in for a rough ride. Their story wasn’t a walk in the park – there will be heartbreaks, betrayal, and even death…

Nevertheless, Chris Myers made me want to read the next book in the series, and looked forward for more Jinx and Lennon.

Look for her series RIPSTERS, a Young Adult, paranormal/mystery with the spark of romance, starting with DATE WITH THE DEAD.
