Want It by Jennifer Chance Review

Want It
Rule Breakers # 3
By: Jennifer Chance
Releasing December 9th, 2014

In the latest tantalizing Rule Breakers novel from Jennifer Chance, an irresistible alpha male follows his ex into a deadly standoff—and reignites a heated affair.

For Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working her dream job at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble, which is more than she can say for her deadbeat mom. Unfortunately, her mother’s latest misadventure lands her in the clutches of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has no business asking for help: the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her former high school sweetheart.

Zander James is no gentleman—and no officer, either, thanks to Erin. Four years ago, she made a call that terminated his highest aspirations . . . and their relationship. He’s never forgiven her, but when he learns that Erin’s embarking on a half-baked rescue mission, he sure as hell can’t let her go alone. Now, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her.

Want It is the story of a teenaged heartbreak made up of control, confusion and fear which turns into adult anger and resentment…but that is me just making the story too simple.
One night changed Erin’s and Zander’s life for good, and anger and a poor decision destroyed their blossoming romance. Erin continued with life and Zander went into the Army. Four years later Zander is forced to come home for his father’s funeral and the last person he expects to see is Erin. But once he sees her, he doesn’t seem to want to let her go. After managing to talk her into coming back to his parents’ house after the funeral, he is blown away at what Erin asks…
Erin has not had an easy 4 years since Zander left; she has struggled with her guilt over that fateful night. As well as struggled to keep her life together after her grandmother died, not to mention dealing with her mother…a mother that no one knows about, a mother that Erin is ashamed of. Now her mother has got herself into a whole lot of trouble and has dragged Erin into the mix. Erin goes to the one person who can give her the advice…that is, if he will speak to her.
I was so excited to read this book, the blurb made it sound like such a hot and exciting read. And while that it true for most of the book, the story didn’t flow as smoothly as I would have liked. It seemed to just from one characters POV to another, without giving me a clear picture of the story. The only other part of the book that I wasn’t keen on was that it had flashbacks.
Despite those small annoyances, the chemistry between the characters Zander and Erin was explosive, and I don’t just mean in the carnal way ;-) At times Erin comes off as a little wooden and Zander a bit of an arse, but I thought it added to the complexity of the characters.
Overall, an enjoyable book, I give it 7 out of 10. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
