CHARACTER TOUR ~ JACK from Seducing Lauren by Kristen Proby


In the second book in the Love Under the Big Sky series from this NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestselling author of the With Me in Seattle series, life in Montana gets spicy when a woman and her divorce lawyer sign off the papers—and sign on to love.

Now that his best friend, Josh, has happily settled down with his true love on a Montana ranch, small-town lawyer Ty Sullivan starts thinking that maybe single life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. And when Lauren Cunningham’s no-good ex-husband comes after her for an unexpected trust fund, Ty steps in to protect her. But soon he can’t help but think of her as more than a client. Lauren’s in no mood to jump into another relationship, so how can Ty convince her that her mistake wasn’t getting married, but marrying the wrong guy?



I didn't think it was possible for me to love another character like I love Will Montgomery, but Kristen sure made it hard to pick between Will Montgomery and Ty Sullivan.  Ty is a force to reckon with as he stole my heart in Seducing Lauren.  

Kristen Proby created a character that knew who he wanted and set out to make her his. The chemistry between Ty and Lauren is off the charts.  From start to finish you felt the sparks between the two.  There was no denying the sexual chemistry between them.  As I started reading Seducing Lauren, I knew I would love it because I am a HUGE Kristen Proby fan, however I had no idea what I was in store for when I met Ty Sullivan.  

With each turn of the page, Ty melted my panties.  He pulled no punches and he made sure that Lauren  Cunningham knew exactly what he wanted.  Ty is very protective of those that he loves, and that included Lauren.  So when Lauren is in danger due to her stalker psychotic ex husband, Jack, Ty will stop at nothing to protect her.  The only problem is, sometimes you can't always protect the ones that you love from the danger that lurks ahead. Ty can do his damnedest, but sometimes that isn't good enough.  

Lauren is a strong woman who knows what she wants.  I LOVED reading Seducing Lauren and seeing Lauren not be a weak woman that couldn't make decisions.  It was a breath of fresh air to read Seducing Lauren.  Yes, Lauren had a shitty marriage and went through a horrible divorce, but that didn't leave her hating the world.   Lauren found Ty Sullivan to be quite sexy and when Ty pursues her, she doesn't back down.  Lauren is up for the challenge. Can Ty and Lauren have a relationship knowing that she was married before?  Will Lauren's past impact her future?  Can Lauren move on from her ex-husband and live happily ever after with Ty?  

I absolutely LOVED Seducing Lauren.  I could not put it down and I finished the book in one sitting.  Kristen has a way to make you fall in love with her characters.  She makes us relate to the characters and what they are going through in life.  Seeing Ty and Lauren form a relationship was so heart warming, and I loved seeing Lauren feel cherished, wanted, adored. She hadn't had that in her past marriage, so to see how loving Ty was, it warmed my heart. There are great men out there, they're not just characters that are created by these amazing authors.  They really do exist, you just have to look or sometimes they stumble upon us when we are least expecting it. 

This review was prepared by Heather.  I received an ARC from the publisher for an honest review, however I purchased by own copy as well through Amazon.


Jack: Seducing Lauren
“Hey, gorgeous.”
“I told you not to come here, Jack. I don’t want to see you.” How can he still make me so damn nervous?
“Aww, don’t be like that, baby. You’re making this so much harder than it needs to be.”
I round on him, shocked and pissed all over again. “I’m the one making this hard?” I shake my head and laugh at the lunacy of this situation. “I don’t want you here. The divorce has been final for weeks now, and you have no business being here. And now you’re going to fucking sue me?”
He loses his smug smile and his mouth tightens as his brown eyes narrow. “No, I’ll tell you what will make it easy, Lauren. You paying me what’s rightfully mine is what will make it easy. You hid that money from me, and I’m entitled to half.”
“I’ll never pay you off, you sonofabitch.” I’m panting and glaring, so fucking angry.
“Oh, honey, I think you will.” He moves in close and drags his knuckles down my cheek. I jerk my head away, but he grabs my chin in his hand, squeezing until there’s just a bit of pain. “Or maybe I’ll just come back here and claim what’s mine. You are still mine, you know.”

Here is a song that represents JACK in the Love under the Big Sky series.
