    Against All Odds by Ju Ephraime is a 2013 Envision School Publishing release I was provided a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.Jayden and his long time girlfriend broke up and now she is marrying someone else He sucks it up, attends the wedding, then promptly heads to the bar to drown his sorrows Jayden isn t used to hard liquor and gets so drunk he passes out Genna, works at The Black Boar and decides to help this poor man She brings him home to sober up despite her grandmother s disapproval Jayden finds himself attracted to Genna He decides he should offer her a night out for having rescued him The two begin to date, taking things slow But, Jayden is so gun shy after the way Shannon treated him, that he suffers from intimacy issues Genna, not really understanding his reticence becomes frustrated with him.Things look as though they may work themselves out, but an unlikely person begins to interfere and things become dangerous for both Genna and Jayden.This adult contemporary romance addresses an issue rarely talked about, and certainly is never addressed in romance novels, and that is the impact of rejection on a guy Having been spurned over and over by Shannon, the rejection being so painful, Jayden finds it difficult to pursue an intimate relationship with Genna I applaud the view from the male perspective in this one I have enjoyed reading Ju Ephraime s novels Her style fits my comfort zone for romance novels High Steam is the perfect description for her novels The only complaint I had with this one is a feeling I had at the beginning of things moving too fast and feeling rushed By the fourth chapter, the pace evened out and we were able to see character growth and get a better understanding of Jayden.Over all this is a solid effort by this author I give this one an A.

    Where are the Jayden s of today Unfortunately in this story, he is with Genna Another outstanding performance by Ju Ephraime with this contemporary romantic, high steam novel Jayden has been heartbroken since his longtime girlfriend Shannon went off and married another, that is of course until the night he met Jenna I think they were both love stricken from the very first meet After he gets totally inebriated at the bar she works at, Jenna takes Jayden home to her gram s house They are cautious about each other in the beginning, as they are not sure of each other s past, but once they get all past the first hello s, then it is full steaminess ahead for these two This isn t your average high steam novel, but one of depth and a realistic storyline that can fit into anyone s true to life scenarios Amidst the bumps along the way of trying to become a couple, Jayden and Jenna show how two people in love can have numerous obstacles thrown at them, but yet remain true and supportive of each other This is a read I would recommend for anyone that loves a good love story that will keep you coming back for too bad all endings can t be like Against All Odds.

    I received this book to give an honest review.Wow the chemistry that develops between Genna and Jayden was OMG It was not your normal run of the mill let s meet and jump in the sack They both took their time even though the chemistry would heat up and you would think here they go it didn t happen until much later within the story This story doesn t have any magic like her other stories this has a bit of jealousy that rears its ugly head I do have to say when I first started reading this and what Genna ended up doing I was like oh lawd, Jayden is in for it run, run But it turned out to be a good thing that Genna did I am so glad that after what Shannon put Jayden through he didn t give up on love but took his time with finding it and making sure she was the right one You can tell Genna and Jayden are perfect for each other but will it survive with the heartache that Jayden has been through and the one previous relationship that Genna was in

    Against All Odds by Ju Ephraim is a beautifully written romance story that follows the gradually growing connection between Jayden and Genna The romance part is slow burning at first but there is drama and even some action to keep you interested in any case Although the two protagonists have a really great chemistry going on between them they are cautious and have to overcome the odds against them Past hurt, trust issues and other drama interfers with their relationship.I was pleasantly surprised to see such a realistic portrayal of a romantic story, it makes for a welcome break for this reader not to be too sure of a happy ending and how the story is going to play out Very enjoyable.

    This is a cool love story with red hot action It opens with an unpromising scenario heart broken Jayden has passed out after drowning his sorrows, when bartender Genna rescues him and takes him back to the home she shares with her Gran There s sexual tension right from the start, but how will it work out I won t give the plot away, but I will say that I enjoyed the journey, including assaults, hospital phobia, and a near death experience What s even better of course is the way steam rises from almost every page If you re looking for red hot action and a lovely story, you won t be disappointed.

    It was such a great idea for the author to give the reader a book from Jayden s point of view Jayden had been such a good friend in Temptation To Sin and I was left wondering what would happen to him and if he would trust again It was very refreshing to see that the author did not pair Jayden with the obvious choice of another of Shannon s friends which would have been the easy way out The idea of love at first sight was another refreshing part of the storyline There was romance with sparks, tension, and suspense I think and hope Ju Ephraime with be around for a long time continuing to give us great stories.
