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

Beauté De Livres  (Vivian Freeman)
Quake is the first book in a two part series by debuting author Jacob Chance. With both the author and the book being surrounded by a lot curiosity and hype, expectations are automatically set high. So, when readers are introduced to Kyle McKenzie and Janny Moore, an emotional journey filled with lust, lies and love ensues. Keeping readers engrossed from beginning to end, Jacob Chance’s introduction into the indie world does not disappoint.

Quake is the debut novel from author Jacob Chance. The premise of Quake is an interesting one, and quite different from anything else I've seen published recently, which was a huge positive for me. It follows the relationship between Kyle and Janny, who have an unconventional start to say the least.

I absolutely loved this book and read it in one sitting. Your attention is captured from the start of the prologue to the very last word written. And the first chapter is probably the hottest one tha

Jacob Chance has a huge problem on his hands—he set the bar so high on HIMSELF that his next book has some pretty big shoes to fill. I'm seriously taken back with the fact that Quake is his debut novel.
Janny Moore and Kyle McKenzie have both lost more than anyone should have to. Yet, these two are intelligent, caring and considerate people who miraculously carry on with their lives.
The two of them literally bump into each other at a Quake, a nightclub. I want to say that fate has led Janny and

Quake is Jacob Chance's first book, first of many, I hope! He is a new author that will be making the ladies swoon with his words, for many books to come. I have been anxiously awaiting this book for months now. I'm not going to lie...I did a bit of a happy dance and drank too many margaritas in celebration of it's arrival. I will tell you that it was totally worth the wait! Quake will be burning up kindles like you wouldn't believe!

***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

I always love reading books from new authors and so glad I had the opportunity to read this book. The authors words in this book had me intrigued. I was hooked into this book from the first chapter. The title for the book was so very fitting and I absolutely loved the cover. The cover alone would make me want to buy this book.

I was very interested in these characters. I really enjoyed how descriptive Jacob was with his characters. These characters were just like your normal everyday people and
Dirty Laundry Review
Paula Dawn's Review:

I haven't read a lot of serials, I'm usually a full length novel girl, but I knew when I read Quake would involve some type of voyeur aspect, I was in. As I've said before, I don't discriminate against my book boyfriends. Stalker-ish? No problem.

I should clarify... Kyle wasn't a stalker exactly, he was just a man drawn to a girl who didn't know he was watching... and, um, doing sexy things to himself. I mean, see the difference there?

Kyle was a PI with some hidden secrets.

Let me start by saying this book was A-MA-ZING, the way it is written you wouldn't think that it is Author Jacob Chance's debut novel, it was written that well. I was hooked from just reading the prologue and didn't put it down until the last page.

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

I was lucky enough to be given an ARC of Quake in exchange for an honest review.
From the first page I was gripped. I loved the voyeuristic element of the first chapter it was a scorching opening scene and it set the pace for the rest of the book.

I'm trying to find the words to describe how I feel right now after reading this. The ending has pretty much slayed me. My heart was owned, then broken, then ripped out of my chest. So many emotions in one book. Great job Jacob. This was definitely a 5 star read and if I didn't know, I would never guess this was your first book published.

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.

This was one of a few books I was patiently waiting for this year. Let me just say that I loved the story. I loved the characters. I loved that fate played a roll in bringing Kyle and Janny together. Kyle was very much taken with Janny and it showed. He was gentle with her, but also controlling with her.....he balanced it perfectly. It was a true love story with all the sexy goodness that you would need in a book. I literally don't know that I can wait to find out what happens.....I almost threw ...more

Wow such a great book! The first chapter was HOT!! Kyle is a investigator and watches Janny on the screen. Well Kyle wants to meet her so badly which they happen to bump into each other at Quake. Well the story goes on from there very sexy, hot, melt your kindle kink. Will Kyle tell Janny the truth? Will they be able to trust each other? That ENDING OMG YOUR KILLING ME!!! Great book I want more NOW! I received ARC for unbiased review

I was so anxiously awaiting the. release of Quake just from the teasers and the synopsis, but I did have my doubts not knowing what to expect from a new author and Quake being Jacob Chances's debut novel by far exceeded my expectations.

The two main characters Kyle McKenzie and Janny Moore define the meaning of fate in so many ways , both broken and fighting past demons, watching their journey from start to finish had me so intrigued that I actually felt as if I was right there with them the wh

What a fantastic debut for Jacob Chance! I felt this was so so well written for a first book. The story flowed really well and nothing was confusing or transparent throughout the story. The characters were compelling and complex and you could easily get a real sense of their personality.
Kyle is an ex-police officer with a traumatic past. He also suffers daily from chronic pain and depression. He is now a P.I. and notices Janny while monitoring a subject. There is something about her that is spe

With all the hype surrounding Quake, I had high expectations from Jacob Chance. And I was more than pleasantly surprised as this story was remarkable.

It has everything you look for in an outstanding story. Romance, love, hate, fear, chemistry, mystery, suspense, angst and more.

Kyle is one sexy alpha male who has a tonne of baggage he is carrying and Janny is your girl next door who unassumingly falls for Kyle. What will their journey have in store for them?

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

The debut novel by Jacob Chance was a good one!  From the synopsis alone, I was intrigued as to where the relationship between a stalking P.I. and an unsuspecting college student would go. The romance between the two takes off once they meet and the author delivers some hot as sin sex scenes! 

What I wasn't prepared for was the suspense element!  I was pleasantly surprised by how great Jacob was able to blur the lines between romance and suspense in his debut novel.  As my heart began to race, q

Felt like I was waiting forever to read Quake. It was so worth the wait!
I loved both Kyle & Janny as characters & their story. Also really liked that when I started reading the book I thought that Kyle & Janny's story was going to go a certain but went in another direction that I wasn't expecting. I enjoyed that majority of the book focused on Kyle & Janny's new relationship with an interesting turn of events closer to the end. I must say that Jacob sure knows how to right a great cliffhanger!

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.
