From the first moment I saw Janny Moore's sparkling eyes and luminous smile, I've been obsessed with the idea of getting to know her...

She's everything I need in my life, now I just have to convince her.
She's never set eyes on me, she has no idea I exist...
but she will.

Slight ammendment here.

I have decided out of fairness to the author and to the readers or future readers interested in this book that I won't be writing a review. I'm going to be neutral. You may now call me Switzerland.

There is not one single negative review here. So what does that say about me? I didn't particularly like the book and I'm tickled pink for all of you who did. I won't go into detail how I felt about this book.

Just because I didn't like it doesn't mean that others won't besides

***Reviewed for Amo & Sarah’s Book Corner***

Firstly I loved this book! Secondly the way this is written you wouldn’t think it was Jacob Chance’s debut novel.

Kyle McKenzie is a retired cop turned P.I. While on the job he stumbles across Janny Moore. She’s young, gorgeous and immediately catches Kyle’s attention, and he knows he needs to get to know her somehow.

“She’s never set eyes on me. She has no idea I exist…. but she will”.

As soon as I started the prologue to this I knew I was hooked, I read

Reviewed by Donna Elsegood

This is the story of Kyle McKenzie, an ex-cop turned private investigator and Janny Moore, the young lady who Kyle is obsessed with and desperate to get to know. I’m a sucker for stories told from a dual point of view and couldn’t have asked for more when I soon realised that this was how it was going to be. Familiarizing myself with each of them and what they were thinking as the story unfolds literally had me stuck to the pages. And the begin

QUAKE is Jacob's debut novel and I'm hoping for many more from him. I had been going crazy wanting to read this book after seeing all the teasers for it and let me tell you this book did not disappoint when I finally did get to read it. This book was different than any book I've ever read. He hooked me from the beginning all the way until the end. I couldn't put this book down I took it with me everywhere I went until I finished.

Quake is an erotic romance written by a new author, Jacob Chance. You wouldn’t know he’s new to the genre as he slides in smoothly with two characters that grab your attention right from the start and keep you riveted. It’s a sexy, well paced romance from start to end. I like that it hit some of the right buttons for my personal reading tastes – an obsessive, dirty talking MC, some secrets, and an all consuming erotic love story. This isn’t nearly as dark as a number of t

For a debut novel this author knows how to capture your attention right at the start. That early glimpses of what to expect had totally caught me off guard. I was especially torn on chapter one on what was happening but at the same time it was getting intensely hot!

This is a story of a private investigator, Kyle McKenzie. Like many of the characters' backgrounds that we read about we usually find that they have experienced some kind of past that tends to hold them back for more; however, as you

Mind blowing

No words to describe how amazing this book is from start to finish! Kyle from the very beginning is one hot alpha male and janny is his perfect match. Jacob chance although new to this writing thing knows exactly how to get you enraptured into the book and keeps you engaged with the characters. Let's not even get started on the sex scenes in this book I could go on for hours how incredibly hot they are. Looking forward to Quiver.

Momma’s Rating 4 Debut Stars!
After reading all the teasers and the blurb about this book, I couldn’t wait to give it a read. What an impressive debut novel, this author shows such promise with his writing skills I’m looking forward to more from him.
Kyle and Janny literally bump into one another and their story begins, and what a story it is. With the dual POV we get an insight from both in-depth characters. This couples characters are like reading about you

Epic Debut Released!

For several months now I've been seeing posts on Facebook about these brothers that had both decided to write a book. Their upcoming releases were posted in different book groups, and I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical. As the release date got closer, I saw a few teasers and synopsis, enough to at least make me think, "well, why not?" I'm so glad that I decided to take a chance on this book. I love the book groups because they do highlight many new indie authors, ones I p

Quake is the debut novel by author Jacob Chance. I was intrigued by the blurb and the excitement surrounding this new author. Chance kept me rooted to the pages with his intensely sensual and sweet love story of Kyle McKenzie and Janny Moore.

The story is told in alternative POV and I loved learning about Kyle and Janie’s past and I fell in love with their truly unconventional love story. Chance gave snippets into the past each protagonist and reveale

In this book we meet Kyle and Janney. Kyle is a sexy as sin PI, who has focused his talents on the beautiful miss Janney. From the very beginning Kyle knows Janney is the girl for him. The one that's different from all the rest. But he has secrets and demons he's not sure she can handle.

The title of this book will definitely having you "quaking" in your........yeah shoes, right from the very first chapter.  Mr. Chance has done a remarkable job in detailing his hero and heroine characters who meet in a very unusual way.  Kyle McKenzie is a private investigator after he was injured on the job as a police officer and was not medically cleared to return to work except behind a desk.  Janny Moore is in her senior year at Boston University and the sister o

Loved it!

Ok let's start with the negative bc they're little and let's get them out of the way. 1. Cliffhanger warning!!! Did not know this going in but could have missed that somewhere. 2. I don't like the c word and it's used a few times. That's it! Now on to the freaking awesomeness! I really did love this book. I was worried it would be a ton of sex and no story ( guy writer, first scene being what it was) but it wasn't. There was enough to keep you hot, and man were they hot, but not an abu

This is the debut book from this author. This story is hot. The way the author describes the characters makes you feel like they are real, someone that you could be friends with in real life perhaps. The story line is well written and flows.

Kyle McKenzie is a retired cop turned PI. He was shot in the line of duty. He deals with some intense migraines from being shot.

You need to read this as soon as it come out (June 16). I promise you will enjoy it ^^

What a stellar debut by a talented and promising author! QUAKE, by Jacob Chance, the first of a two-part series has a unique premise and a compelling storyline. The synopsis was intriguing, and the book lives up to its promise; it's a perfect balance of passion, sexual tension, and lingering suspense.

The characters are well-developed and relatable - each a little bit worn and wary, but resilient and determined. From the very beginning, they connect to each other in a powerful way; but their pat

This is a debut novel for Jacob Chance and did he hit this out of the park! It has everything you could want in a hot hero and a sweet heroine. He gives us a great buildup of who our characters are. I fell in love with Kyle and Janny. There is angst, romance, and plenty of hot sex!
Kyle is a PI who never expected to see the girl of his dreams while he is on surveillance. She is everything he wants and feels he doesn't deserve. But can he hold onto her or will she be taken away like so many other
QUAKE is Jacob Chance's debut novel. This was a quick, hot read that started off a little slow for me but picked up in the second half and definitely left me wanting the conclusion to this story.

Kyle is a former police officer turned private investigator. After taking on a new job, he encounters Janny, a college student, in what I would call a very unconventional way. This story had that insta love feel for me, especially for Kyle. He's not looking for any kind of relationship but when he sees

I loved this book! I really liked Kyle and Janny. I loved their first official meeting at Quake. The characters felt real. I am not sure I really like Josh though. I loved how Kyle was able to open up to Janny about what happened to him. My heart broke when Janny found out the truth about his job and was so angry and hurt.
I don't want to go into too much more detail, so just read the book! Be prepared for the hell of a cliff hanger.

This is a great debut novel by Jacob Chance. I adore the book cover, and of course the blurb sucked me in. I have to be honest and say it’s not very often that a male author can hold my attention, but Jacob really pulled me into the story. I was literally sucked in from the beginning. After reading the blurb, I had a general idea of how the story might play out, but I was actually shocked out the outcome. This book is told in duel POV so we get both Kyle and Janny throughout the book.

This is one debut that has set an exceptionally high bar. I am always looking for new authors. I think it's the fresh perspective and the fact that you are excited but not knowing what to expect that really does it for me. Jacob Chance has made me a huge fan with this first book.

Meet Kyle, an ex cop and now a P.I. As he works a case, he is intrigued by a house guest. He's never been affected like this before by a woman. A chance meeting in a bar leaves him wanting more of Janny. His nights will be long until he can act on the fantasies he's been living day in and day out. Her eyes....his favorite crayon color...cause many restless nights. Another chance meeting and away we go! Hot and heavy time to take it slow. But will he ever be able to tell her the ...more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect with Quake due to it being a debut novel by Jacob Chance but I’m glad I took a chance. Jacob did a great job with the details in the story even though a times the story felt a little too rushed. As the story progressed, I wanted to continue reading to find out what would happen next.

I enjoyed both Kyle & Janny from their first meeting, and the chemistry was there immediately. Both their characters were realistic and they complimented one another. Eac

I absolutely LOVED this book! Even if it did have the mother of all cliffhangers at the end LOL! It really is hard for me to believe this is Jacob’s debut novel. Yes, you heard that right…debut…novel! This story is very well written, the characters are fantastic, and there’s just the right amount of suspense, angst and definitely a whole lotta sexiness!

You’re the best at making the worst cliffhanger I have read in like….forever!
When I say worst, I really mean best, because that cliffhanger really got my blood pumping through my veins and what a thrill that was.

I just loved this story. Kyle is awesome but Janny doesn't let him have everything his way. A Sexy and hot tale. Kyle gets one look at Janny and he is captured. He can't stsy away from her. However Kyle has problems too but he just wants to be with her. Janny likes Kyle but has trust issues. I can't wait for the continuation of this story - the cliffhanger is a beauty. Five stars for a debut novel that is awesome.!!!!!
