About the Book

Mavis always assumed that she would be in a hospital with the good drugs when her time came. Not in the middle of the road, with no one around but the damn town mechanic that hated her.

But there she was, having a rock star’s baby, with no one to rely on but the one that let it be known around every turn that she was a horrible person.

From the time that she met Murphy and became best friends with him at the age of eight, she knew he was destined for greatness.

But then her grandmother fired Murphy’s mom, forcing them to live on the streets, and making Murphy to realize that maybe they weren’t best friends after all.

Murphy loved Mavis.

At least, he had when he was younger, before she betrayed him.

From that moment forward, Murphy goes out of his way to stay the hell away from her, and always makes sure to never get too close. Even though everything inside of him screams to make contact.

When he moves back to town after being gone for five years, he tries his best to stay away.

But there she is at his CrossFit gym. Then having a baby on the side of the road. Oh, and breaking him a little more with each step she takes away.

Eventually, they find their way back to each other. The only problem is, by the time that Mavis makes her way back into his heart, it breaks. And not in a rhetorical way. In the ‘he only has days to live’ kind of way.

My Review – 5 stars!

Stock Kleenex before reading this book … you’ll need it.

In my 40+ years on this earth, fewer than 5 books have made me cry. This one about broke me. I wanted to go curl up in my husband’s lap after reading one of the toughest chapters ever, even though I knew Ms. Vale would make sure Mavis and Murphy got their HEA. So go into this one expecting a bit of heartbreak.

I enjoyed the banter between Mavis and Murphy a great deal. No matter how much they claimed to dislike one another, it was clear they were trying to hide their true feelings. When they finally gave in, the romance between them amped up fast.

Jerk It is beautiful, painful, and messy… which is exactly how love should be. Ms. Vale deserves a standing ovation for this one!
