Much like the title suggests, the main character Isabella is a jaded gal. She’s had really bad luck in love — god, who hasn’t? — and has done some soul searching that leads her to completely eschew men. As she’s adjusting to the new lifestyle, something her family just doesn’t understand or accept, here comes Luke Peterson, a totally badass hunkathon on repeat who complete ...more

I don't know if it was the sub-zero temperatures at work or the book but I had chills. It was definitely the book. I'm certain of it. I've been on the hunt for some good, flirty romance and I found it in Jaded a new release by Ember Leigh. It had all of the flirty romance I wanted but it did pack a punch with the plot and leading lady Isabella.

I was really able to relate to Isabella. She's given up on men. And I can't tell you how many times I've been there. After one too many heartbreaks, she's

**2.5 Stars**

This was a really sweet romance with a good splash of heat to spice things up a bit.

This was my first book by Ember Leigh and I really enjoyed her writing style. I always prefer duel points of view and it worked really well in this story.

I have to admit that I didn't really like Luke for a while. I didn't like the way he and his friends bet on women and how long it would take Luke to bed them, whether the women were made aware of the bet, or not. I didn't like his attitude toward

Leigh - Jaded

Jaded is an ARC offered by author Ember Leigh. This was another book that I was looking forward to but just didn’t love. The writing and editing, the story telling, they’re all great. But man, I just did not like either of our main characters. Jaded is a good title for the book because Isabella definitely is. Luke isn’t exactly a prince himself. But hey, maybe they deserve each other.

Overall Rating: 3 stars- Worth a few minutes before bedtime.

4.5 stars!!!!
Holy smoking sexual tension! Jaded was one of the biggest teases, book wise I have ever read. Okay let me explain. So Isabella is a bright, beautiful, firecracker who is so JADED with love that she has sworn off men, all men; short, tall, hunky, sweet it doesn’t matter if you have a ding-a-ling Isabella wants no part. Done with relationships and having her heart broken she decides to focus on herself. But when a surprise remodel of her house places a delicious Luke Peterson, lead bu

OMG—grab your smokes and a drink! And if you don't smoke, you might start after reading this wonderful story by Ember Leigh. The sexual tension between Isabella and Luke is frustratingly delicious. True to its title, Jaded features the quirky, high strung Isabelle, who is the definition of being afraid to commit after one too many broken hearts. Yet temptation is the mother of conflicts when she meets Luke. The author represents this heroine with just the right amount of attitude to convey her j ...more

Wow, this book was all kinds of awesome! Isabella starts out as someone who is completely turned off by men. She's just been hurt by them so much that she just wants nothing to do with them anymore – something a lot of people can relate to. Of course, her resolve waivers when she meets Luke, a hot construction worker who's got issues of his own.

Ember Leigh did a fantastic job weaving these two together as they each work through their own problems and flaws. The characters are just like people I
InD'tale Magazine
The premise of the “Jaded” showed promise. The first chapter would easily make a reader smile. However, the characterization isn’t quite up to snuff.

Read full review in the 2014 September issue of InD’tale Magazine.
