You gotta love JJ Knight and the way she ropes you in with her stories. 1 volume at a time, each ending with a cliff hanger that leaves you anxiously waiting for the next. She's done it again with Blue Shoes. As the blurb on the book says, it's the story of Jess & Dylan who you may have met in the Revenge series. I never did get to that series but I feel I need to soon now just to see what sort of back story it has on these 2. You don't have to read Revenge to pick up this series but there is some history that keeps being brought up regarding a previous breakup of Jess & Dylan, where she cheated on him. That's a bit of a change from the Rock Star usually being the one to cheat so that's a little refreshing and makes me want to check it out. Also, I'd like to see how the 2 of them met and ended up together so maybe that's in there.
Jess works at Morris Music as a young, fast rising executive. The same agency that represents Dylan Wolf. The 2 of them are engaged, living together and planning their wedding that no one really knows will be in 6 weeks rather than further down the road as they've originally said. The plan is to have a quiet wedding to avoid the paparazzi that plague them.
In volume 1 Jess goes out to find the perfect wedding dress. She comes from a simple life and wants a simple, but beautiful dress. The excursion is anything but simple when the paparazzi make their appearance and Dylan comes to her rescue. There is a visit to the Er and after Dylan provides his form of a medical check-up, Jess is good as new. The paparazzi is wearing on Jess so after some discussion with Dylan she decides to take her boss up on the offer of going with him to Rome, Italy to help with some agency business. Dylan tells her she can take some time to find a new dress there and he will meet up with her as soon as he wraps up his PR for the new album. While in Italy Jess just thinks about Dylan and misses him but does well with the work, when she focuses on it. Things seem to be going ok until she begins receiving notices on her phone regarding Dylan. There are some videos of him kissing a girl and some nude selfies so she begins to break down because she thinks she's losing him.
Jess is quite insecure in her relationship with Dylan and volume 1 leaves us hanging with her receiving a phone call, hoping it's from Dylan to explain everything away.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
