WARNING: This is NOT romance in any way, shape or form! This book is complete and total ohmyfkinggawd EROTICA. Okay, let's be honest... this makes erotica look like children's tales. I do love hot and steamy books (when they're well written) but... I pretty much read this story with my mouth hanging open and my heart hammering the entire time. Not sure if I was more aroused or scared to death- Jared has a penchant for some things that drew a very loud and very adamant "Hell No!" from me more ...more

I don't often write reviews; I prefer to rate a book and move on. That's one of the things that makes Goodreads so much better than Amazon - you can let people know you like a book but if you don't have time to explain why, you don't have to.
Anyway, when it came time to rate The Jared Effect by Jake Malden I felt I should offer at least a brief comment since giving a book four stars could be viewed as a recommendation. Which I would totally recommend this book if you're looking for a cheap

The Jared Effect was the first book from Jake Malden that I ever read, and let me tell you, it is definitely a one-handed read. ;) My friend used to rave about Jake Malden's writing skills, but I had never heard of him before so one day I decided to give him a read. I started with The Jared Effect because that was what she was reading when she was raving about him. She said it was hot, but damn, it was scorching!
Jared is a rockstar who you would think of as a slacker hitchhiking on the side

For what this book is - a collection of short erotic stories surrounding one complete badass, this book is everything I was hoping it would be.


Each story is fast paced, with just the right amount of cheekiness and overflowing with sexual tension which breaks into an all-out sexcapade.

Jared is one badass dude who knows exactly what every woman's secret sexual desires are.
His dialogue is perfectly balanced with sarcasm, snarkiness and filth that he commands any woman's' attention.

I started reading The Jared Effect with low expectations but enjoyed each of the three short stories more as I went along. The writing and editing are both decent which is unusual for the genre. Where the book excels is with its presentation of hot, gritty, sloppy sex that revved my motor and could only have been penned by a man. I wonder: does it play as well with female readers?

The Jared Fable....


What does the word 'fable' mean - a short story, typically with animals as characters conveying a moral.

And let me tell you, Jared is a beast!

The Jared Effect is, in effect, three stories. Bad boy, Jared, takes a road trip and along that trip is involved in three very sexy situations. Now this book has been buried in the bowels of Amazon, is it the cover? Or is it the content? I suspect the latter. There is a lot of bad language but somehow it didn't feel gratuitous. As much

The Jared Effect – Oh My, Oh My, it certainly left me affected!!
This is a going to hell in a hand basket collection of out and out erotica and if this is your cup of tea it will blow your socks off.
If it isn’t then please you have been warned!
Jake Malden, you are a very dangerous man, you are seriously not good for my health.
The stories are eclectic but they have one thing in common, they are spectacularly erotic. They leave little on the table – in fact they flip the damn table over and will

If you enjoy a hot erotic read then you are definitely going to really enjoy these three stories! All of Jared stories kept me interested from beginning to end, with some real strong characters and fast paced action. Jared is a bad boy traveler/rocker that you cannot help but like, a hot, sexy, full of charm and very dominate character.

Jake has an amazing talent of making you want more of Jared! There HAS to me more Jared!

For me, Jared Morgan started a little rough. I wasn't sure I would like him but I quickly came to realize that was his character. That was Jared. He's hard core. He's rough around the edges. What I didn't like about him made him into the unique character he was. What gentleness I thought he lacked actually made him into the character that I grew to love. Each story connected to the next which I liked. I love stories that connect with the characters. But each story made me warm up to Jared more ...more

The Jared Effect is a wild and steamy story about the life of a travelling playboy named Jared Morgan and the "effect" he has on the females he encounters.

I found Jared's ability to clearly read between the lines and understand the needs of the people he meets to be intriguing. He seems to perceive their desires even before they fully realize them and he wastes no time in fulfilling their cravings. Jared even learns a thing or two about himself along the way.

The story flows at a fairly rapid

This is 3 story's about Jake's sexual adventures. The first story he has 2 women one engaged and the other a "friend of her sisters". They have pretty raw and intense sex which is well written and hot. I liked this story the most of the three because of how he got her to admit something she didn't want to ....the truth about her fiancé.
The second wow that one was a tough one to handle. We have all had friends that were backstabbers but this took the cake. OUCH~!

This was my first Jake Malden book and I was definitely satisfied when I finished it.

Jared is a loveable rogue and even though at times you want to throat punch him, you can't help but fall in love with his antics.

What this man does with women while he's travelling from place to place can be shocking, it's also so hot that when you get to the last page, you wish you'd read the book slower or that there was a sequel on Amazon as you just NEED more of him(the good news is that there will be a

I have fallen hopelessly in love, and crazily in lust with Jared Morgan, and in turn Jake Malden. This is such an erotic book, I had to read slowly so I didn't combust. I hated to love Jared, and loved to hate him. When I didn't want to punch him in the face, I wanted to jump into the pages and be his next 'victim'. Jake described every scene with incredible sensuality, and paid attention to the right details, leaving out what some erotic authors include to up the word count. There was no ...more

The Jared Effect was off the wall one of the most erotic reads I have ever read. Jake Malden was sure not to disappoint. I was captured in Jared's grasp within the first page like the women he encounters. Jared Morgan is a sexy hitchhiker, carnie, rocker and ex-student, who knows what he wants. With his cocky smile, he almost always gets what he wants too. This is a man of many hats that dropped out of college and hits the road with his Fender guitar and ever present hard-on, is the guy your ...more

This is the first book I have read from this author but it most certainly won't be the last.

This story is about a super hot bloke travelling the world, playing his music and drawing. Oh yeah and fucking countless women. Jared shows the women exactly what they have been missing and boy oh boy, does he do it well. A book full of raw and intense sex without the love stuff. Completely different to what I have read lately and just what I needed. The book starts off hard and fast and it maintains

Ok wow! I had to put down this read at times just to cool off!! Jakes writing style is very unique. He demands attention in his writing and trust me you oblige. The story line was very interesting and clever. I love the characte Jake in this story. He is hot and not ashame in what he wants in bed. He goes after what he wants and proves himself well worth it. Libby is a staight kind of girl who really wants to open up and follow her sexual desires for Jake but she fights it. Follow the journey in ...more

This is not your average erotic romance novel with a HEA. Jared does not believe in romance. This book is three short stories all revolving around Jared Morgan. He’s a college dropout, who has become a guitar-carrying drifter. The three stories in this book chronicle a portion of his trip and the women he meets along the way. If you want hot and steamy without the romance then Jared is the man for you! Each short story was a fast read and all were scorching hot.

This was a thrill to read, so naughty and badass! Throughout the whole book I was totally in awe of the experiences with Jared morgan. Moments where i was frequently blushing and a few silent "Oh My Gods' were included. Jake has done so well writing this book and is extreamly brave with the intense detail given during hot and sexy encounters with Jared, I loved it and would recommend to read as it is totally out there and very different. I dont think Erotica covers it.

The Jared Effect is not a romance story in no way shape or form. If you are looking for some hot boom chicka wow wow then get this book. Jared gives the women he meets the feelings of being wanted, sexy, & self esteem, in a weird way. Don't get me wrong Jared is a man who you want to hate for his womanizing but can't because of what his encounter gives back. The Jared Effect IS NOT a HEA but three stories of how Jared meets women and because of him comes out a changed woman.

Okay where do I start with this book.It was so so good and hot very hot.I loved the adventures Jared takes you on and the characters are all great.

I went in blind not reading the blurb or anything and I was pleasantly surprised.

Jared is so arrogant I wanted to slap him even though I was secretly loving his self assuredness at the same time.

A brilliant book I would love to read more of Jared and his adventures.

Well deserved 5 stars!

Truthfully, there's really not all that much to review, unless you want a rundown on Jared's sexual antics/perversions. This bad boy rocker has a whole lot of kink bundled into that hot bod of his! I found the first story easiest to read, as the following two began taking twists my mind wasn't all that eager to encounter. That being said, all three were well written and even though they were short, each of Jared's playmates was a well developed character.

The Jared Effect is a fun sexy read about a naughty traveler. It's the perfect read when looking for something hot and wild.

Jared is basically just traveling, going where the wind blows and enjoying the women he finds on the journey. He's the prefect mix of laid back funny guy, bad boy and delicious tease.

I really enjoyed these stories and Jared was just a lot of fun! He's a great personality and the kind of guy you'd like to have fun with.

This book is sooooo hot. Loved this. I like romances but once in a while I read a book like this and it knocks me off my feet.

I have a slight aversion of male authors and I haven't read any for a few years now so I saw that this author in one of my female author friends and I looked his books up. They didn't look boring so I marked them for future reading. So glad Jake got me out of my opinion toward male authors. His work is amazing and I look forward to reading it more

The Jared Effect could easily be called the Jared Experience. Three short stories that follow Jared through a year. I was left with only two questions 1) tell me there are more Jared stories coming & 2) where is he traveling next so I can pick his sexiness up. Want some erotic stories that will make your mouth water? Try this book!
