FTC: I received a free copy of this book from iRead Book Tours in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.
Let’s Try This Again by Jordyn Woodtke was an okay book. I enjoyed the story but I did find it pretty predictable. I know I have said this before but after you read as many books as I do you are able to see the patterns in books so you always know what will happen. That being said I did enjoy this book and I really like Josie right from the start. I was also amazed that this is a debut novel because I usually don’t enjoy the first’s book that the authors write. These types of books always leave smile on my face because they are almost always sweet stories and who doesn’t love a good romance novel. If you love chick lit than I am sure you will enjoy this book like I did.
About The Book
One girl. Two guys. It’s complicated. And hot.
First, there is Isaac, the ex-boyfriend who threatens her move to a sunny new life on the west coast when he suddenly comes back into the picture. The chemistry is intoxicating, and Josie starts eating, breathing, and sleeping with him again until the move. Things are hard enough saying goodbye to her childhood home and very best friends, but when Isaac makes it seem like he might actually want her to stay, Josie wonders if she’s giving up on him too quickly.
Josie takes the plunge and moves to California.
Then comes Carter. Sweet, doting – and, oh my god! – Former boy band heartthrob, Carter. Josie’s new life falls into place, with new friends and a job working as the personal assistant to Carter as he plans the re-launch of his career. When it seems like there might be something between Josie and her new boss, she can’t help but hold back in fear of crossing a line and, worse yet, getting her heart crushed. Once again.
What spirals into a complicated, heart-wrenching, unexpected love triangle forces Josie to face a decision that she is not sure she can make. Carter or Isaac. Or – who knows?
It’s Sex in the City meets Bridget Jones Diary under the Hollywood sign. A masterful debut novel of love, sex and rock & roll in the New Adult genre.
