I might be only nineteen, but I know what I want. It’s Leka Moore. I don’t care that he took me in when he was barely more than a kid himself. I don’t care that he raised me. I don’t care everyone thinks being with him is wrong. I know we belong together, and the only person I need to convince is him.
I found her in the corner of a dark alley. If I hadn’t taken her with me, she would’ve died that night—or maybe worse. Before I knew it, she became the light in my dark life, the haven from the madness. I watched her grow up. I tried to teach her right from wrong. Now that she’s an adult, I’m feeling things that no good man should ever feel. But then…I’ve never been a good man. I have a chance at redemption by saving her from the greatest danger of all—me.
I have been reading Jen Frederick’s book since she first published the Woodlands series in 2013. I have enjoyed experiencing her growth as a writer throughout the years with her expansion from new adult to dark romantic suspense and enthralling young adult novels. Whether her theme is sports romance, spoiled teenagers, college co-eds, russian mafia, or sexy millionaires, she has undeniably held me captive with each story. Her latest release Want You brings her writing full circle and has a bit of every genre in it.
Leka and Bitsy are not your typical characters that meet in unusual circumstances that bring their lives together. They are both children living in the streets and struggling to survive their world. Leka became immersed in the street criminal world as a soldier before he turned twelve. When he finds a small five year old girl hiding in the shadows, he’s determined to protect her and keep her alive at all costs. Thus begins their story which goes from survival tactics to family ties. They only have each other. Their commitment to one another is the only thing that keeps them alive in a very ugly world. Leka is determined to keep that world away from their front door. Bitsy is determined to stay by Leka’s side even if it means confronting the monsters at the door.
Jen Frederick once again held me captive with her words. Leka and Bitsy’s story came alive. Their happily ever after wasn’t easy but it was worth every ugly moment they had to endure. It made their love for one another unbreakable.
Jen Frederick lives with her husband, child, and one rambunctious dog. She’s been reading stories all her life but never imagined writing one of her own. Jen loves to hear from readers so drop her a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
