They say opposites attract, but what happens when they collide?

I love Emily Goodwin and this book was an amazing second chance romance!!! Jailbait is a book full of mystery, secrets, romance and angst.
Pepper comes from wealth but she is anything but a silly rich girl. She doesn't want to follow what society forces her to do and she has a great strength as a heroine.
Her world comes upside down when she sees the man who left a big hole in her heart. Grayson was her only love and now he is back. His mission? To protect her...but from whom?
Passion rekindles b

As young adults, Grayson and Pepper were madly in love. Even though they were from two different worlds they were each other’s missing puzzle piece. Then the call came from Grayson’s father, causing him to make an urgent trip to California. He knows leaving Pepper’s bed that night was a mistake but he doesn’t even fathom how much he’s about to lose by following his father’s one request. What happened on that trip ripped these two apart in ways that Pepper never understood.

Now six years later, Gr

I devoured this book in less than 24 hours; something I haven’t done in a crazy long time. The depth of the characters was perfect and I LOVE how Pepper wasn’t your typical ‘heroine in distress’. She had a good head on her shoulders which is refreshing to read. When it came down to it at the end (I REALLY don’t wan to spoiler this because you have to read it) I was smiling ear to ear with her brave, no nonsense actions.
And Grayson…. Mmmmm. I can’t say enough about my Grayson King… MINE. That’s a

This was my first Emily Goodwin book. Let's just say I freaking loved it! This second chance romance between Grayson and Pepper is sensational! An heiress and a former convict. Lots of drama and action packed in this quick read! Highly recommend!

I've read quite a few of this author's books, but I really want to read them all lol! I decided to continue reading this author's books with this book! I'd had it sitting on my Kindle since it released, but I just hadn't picked it up yet! After reading, I can say that I enjoyed this book! I did think that the relationship between the two main characters progressed too quickly, even though they'd had a previous relationship, but apart from that I enjoyed it!

Both characters were frustrating. Pepper was a spoiled princess, I hoped for more down to earth from her but then she'd go shopping or name drop designers. Grey, he could of come clean so many times! But Pepper did overreact to just the smallest part that wasn't his fault so I can't blame him.

Walking away is never easy...

Jailbait - the title may make you think of underage kids, but while this love story starts with young adults - the term is meant totally different.  Grayson would do anything for Pepper.  And I do mean anything - fight, maim, kill - she is his jailbait.  Because even though he knows with his record he already has two strikes against him, he'll do whatever it takes to protect her.  So don't let the title scare you off.  I loved this story of passion and protection.  T

Wow! This was an amazing read that had a lot of emotion put into it. There was plenty of hot moments throughout the book and there was a lot of heartache in it as well. Jailbait was completely different then I thought it would be and absolutely loved it. The story is told in dual point of view of both main characters Grayson and Pepper.

Loved it! Not many authors have the ability to write the way Emily does. No matter the genre Emily grabs you from the first word to the last. Just as emotional as you would expect; it tears at the heart strings and makes you feel.

Greyson and Pepper are not perfect but their story grabs you by the seat of your pants and pulls you along for a fabulous ride!

Greyson has had a rough past; Pepper is the girl next store and by girl next store I mean girl in the mansion next door. Their love is

This is the first time I have read any of this authors work, and it will not be the last, as she certainly does not disappoint. This is a second chance romance for Pepper and Grayson. This story is a quick read, but is action packed and filled with drama, mystery, secrets, angst, and most of all romance.
I recommend this authors work for all second chance romance lovers, and I look forward to reading more or her work in the future.

I’m a fast reader but it’s only when I’m hooked like this I can read a book this quick.

I love when characters aren’t perfect and have flaws even though they’re …fictional. Gasp! I know, I wish they were out living their lives somewhere and you could call them up to check on them. Emily just happens to be one of my favorite authors and she didn’t disappoint. This story had a little bit of angst, a few secrets, and whole lotta sexy. Just the way I like em. Pepper is a strong female. Is there any other way to be? She’s sweet, smart, sexy, and still in love with Grayson a

This story completely blew me away for the beginning till the end. This story had so much that made it into such a mind blowing piece of work. The characters, plot, even the secondary characters. This book took me on an emotional roller-coaster that when it ended I was drained. Caiden and Blaire both go through do much for a love that was forbidden and taboo from the beginning. Their love wasn’t one that was meant to be but sometimes what’s right isn’t always the best thing. This story

Jailbait was a great 5 star read.

Jailbait pulls you in right from the beginning and you won’t want to put it down. There was always something going on and you couldn’t wait to see what was next. I was emotionally exhausted when I was done. Be prepared.

I felt like Grayson and Pepper were doomed from the beginning but yet fought so hard to be together no matter what. This is a great second chance romance that will keep you guessing at every corner on will th

Another great Author to add to my following list. Another great second Chance romance. The romance was hot and sizzling with electrifying chemistry. I do like it when it's told from Dual POV.

Grayson has been gone for a while and now he's back he wants Pepper but he's brought trouble with him. It makes a nice change when the characters have flaws and aren't always perfect.

So I've been dying to read this book since the Author announced it was on the way and my lord was I not disappointed!

First off, who doesn't love a sexy male lead with the name Grayson King!?! The name alone is enough for me to swoon never mind all the other characteristics. The character of Grayson was everything I've ever wanted in a book boyfriend and I could not get enough of him.

Then you have Pepper. She may be rich and a different class all on her own, but she was one of female leads I've b

Emily Goodwin was a new-to-me author. I do love me a good second chance romance so Jailbait was one I was definitely intrigued enough by the blurb to pick up. I have to admit I was a tinge nervous because her stories are usually darker and I definitely don't go there. This one, however, wasn't - it was a spicy little romantic suspense story.

The first half the book dragged a little bit for me. Though it definitely didn't lack the hotness I was hoping for. But the story was just a tad lackluster.
