*This is the last book in the Timing Is Everything series. It's also a novella and even though it's a prequel to Moving Forward, it still needs to be read last.*

Jake Reynolds’ life had always been perfectly mapped out for him as he was growing up. The only time he ever felt like he had any control over it was when he was inside the cage—the same cage that held no for sure

This for me was the finality I needed for the Timing is Everything series.
We briefly met Jake Reynolds in Moving Forward, as he reflected on the mistakes he made in his life, right before he died. His death set forth a string of

deceit and pain as Jesika struggled with the secrets of his past… their past.

Jake knew the other shoe was about drop,

Mmm, a HOT SEXY MMA FIGHTER! Chant with me now….Jake, Jake, Jake, Jake =) I have waited for Jake’s story for a while know. After reading Moving Forward and loving it, I knew there was more to Jake. Sure, I was angry with him for what he did to Jesika but I also knew there was more to this sexy beast than we were getting! I immediately messaged Erika to tell her how much I loved Moving Forward but LOVED Jake and needed to know WHY?!?! Why did he do this? Why did this have to happen? Why her? Oh a ...more

All I can say is that I LOVED it! Personally I really didn't know what to expect when I got this book. However in the I just fell in love with Jake. Even though he made mistakes in his life, he forever regretted them until his last breath. The letter that he wrote for Jesika showed his unconditional love for her, proving that he would do ANYTHING for her.

***YOU HAVE TO READ THE OTHER book at least MOVING FORWARD first, reading NO GOING BACK would be good, but NOT needed).***

I was so hesitant with reading this book. I was soo angry at Jake in Moving Forward. I didn't know what to expect with this book. But of course I will read anything Erika has to write and I needed to see what Jake had to say for himself.

It started off great. I feel everything moved at a wonderful pace in this book. We got everything we needed to know. I was a blubbering mess

May contain spoilers - to me it doesn't because I have read Moving Forward

We met Jake shortly in the beginning of Moving Forward before he was no longer and throughout the whole Timing is Everything series Jake needed his voice. Personally I didn’t care too much for him because of what he did to Jesika but I decided to give him a chance and hear his story and I am so glad Erika gave him one.

Even though he wasn’t perfect and made a BIG HUGE mistake I love Jake! He made me fall in love with him wi

First if you have not read Moving Forward and NO Going back stop and go read them…..then pick up In the End. We learn all about Jake during the book moving forward and he isn’t a character I hated even though I thought he came off as an ass. He was still likeable sorta. Jake Reynolds, Rich boy, MMA fighter, possessive and cocky. I mean that right there is book boyfriend material.

In the End by Erika Ashby is the prequel to Moving Forward. I really enjoyed reading this and felt that Jake had a story too tell. Now if you haven't read Moving Forward this review my contain spoilers. I fell in love with this series from the get go and Jake's story was a must read for me.

Jake is a fighter and all around player. That is until Jesika shows up to one of his fights with his cousin. Once he lays eyes on her he decides that she will be his. He wants to change for her and does for

When I saw that there was a novella coming out in Jake’s Point of View, I knew I had to read it. I had too many unanswered questions. If you have read Moving Forward, or if you plan to, you will want to read this. It was a great read to answer most of my questions. Especially the lingering WHY? Why her?!?!!? Why did you cheat!?!? I was so frustrated before with those lingering questions, and now I don’t have that anymore. I have my answers.. from the man himself. And the end didn’t surprise me.. ...more

Wow this book had me balling my eyes out. It was short and to the point but damn if it didn't make me love Jake even more. From the moment Jake stepped on the page in Moving Forward I knew I was going to LOVE him and despite what happened I continued to love him regardless. Just in the little time you got to spend with him you could FEEL how much love he had for Jesika and that he would do anything to make her happy.

In The End lets you see just how much he did love Jesika. It takes you into his

I REALLY enjoyed reading Jake's POV...I still don't LIKE him because not only was he a cheater, but he was a liar...and I just can't get past that. I do respect and realize how much he loved Jesika, just not enough to tell her the truth for over 5 years and trust in her love for him to allow them to work through it. I mean at least give her the choice, but he couldn't and wouldn't because he was selfish.
I believe everything really does happen for a reason and that Jake's actions set up Jesika's

Terminei a leitura e adorei... chorei em várias partes!
Estava curiosa sobre o conteúdo da carta deixada pelo Jake para a Jes.
Este conteúdo vai sendo revelado ao longo do livro e a medida que vamos lendo nós vamos nos emocionando com a descoberta dos sentimentos do Jake... só fico imaginando a reação da Jes ao fazer a leitura da carta.
Realmente recomendo!
Esta autora está na minha lista de compras definitivamente, eu gostei muito dela.

If you have't read the other two books, you don't want to read this one yet.

When I first started the series, I wanted to hate Jake so much. He was a lie and a cheat. However, when I read this book. I couldn't help but like him, and feel slightly bad for him. I can tell that he really loved Jesika, and he would have done anything for her.

This was a great ending to he series, and I'm going to have to re-read the whole series again, b/c I loved it so much!

Great job Erika, and I look forward to read

I'm typically not a novella fan. To me what can really be said in that short of time? I always wandered about Jake & what his story was so I took the plunge. First of all I would not have enjoyed this book 1st so the .05 sequence to me is off. It should be the last book in the series as is in the order it was written. I say 2.5 or even 3 cause I'm not sure I would have continued the series had I read this one first. However as the last book in the series....It's perfect & totally worth t ...more

After reading Moving Forward, I always wondered what Jake was thinking. Now I know. Erika has written a prequel to give us Jake's point of view on his life, his relationship with Jesika, and how he felt when he messed things up. We learn a little more about the man who was a pivotal character but was largely unknown in Moving Forward. It was a great way to pull this story together. 4 out of 5! {babusbookshelf.blogspot.com}

I am glad the author wrote this book so we could see Jake's mind set. I think Jesika would have forgiven him if he would have explained it all to her. Instead he let the letter say what he couldn't and it was actually really sweet. He truly loved her and told her so. I think she could live with that.

I hated Jake in the other books, but this one made me cry. I actually felt bad and felt his heart ache from the mistakes he made.. I'm glad Erika wrote this novella. I'm also glad I read it, I like reading jake's reason for all the things he did. This is a really good series and I wish there was more to them.

I loved this story of Jake. It really did make me cry. There is nothing like a story where a man truly loves his wife. Thank you for his story. I do recommend everyone read this book. Loved it.

Jake Reynolds’ life had always been perfectly mapped out for him as he was growing up. The only time he ever felt like he had any control over it was when he was inside the cage—the same cage that held no for sure outcome. In his twisted mind being inside that ring with his opponent was the most freeing feeling. In that moment alone he was able to let his perfected guard down and be who he wanted to be.
From the outside looking in, everything about Jake’s life looked perfect, bu
