If you ask me, foolishness is like beauty - all about the eye of the beholder.

For instance - I’ve been told the amount of caffeine I consume on a daily basis will eventually kill me, which makes no sense, because that caffeine is essential to living. Then I have doctors telling me that I need to get more sleep if I want to live a happy, healthy life. I can easily refute th

That voice. Hot damn, his voice did things to parts of my body that had no business being involved in this conversation.

My eyes rolled so far back into my head I swear I saw my brain.

“I used to think it was hot when guys went all alpha male, but now I just think it’s seriously annoying.” “I have no idea what you’re talking about,” Blake deadpanned. “CJ hasn’t had the upper hand since I met him.” “How do you do it? Show me, master. Teach me the ways of the Jedi.”

This is the second book in the series and I liked it even better than the first one. Jenn Hype knows how to write believable characters that you want to hang out with. The girl-relationships are great. I want to be a part of their group. They are the kind of girlfriends that you have over for book club and somehow end up in a bar, dancing on tables and singing karaoke by the end of the night. But, hey, to be fair, we would totally change the words to be book club appropriate:

So. Much. Dialogue. Lines upon lines of exclamation-marked sentences from a bunch of crazy people.

And gosh, so much cheese. Seriously, like this stuff wouldn’t even make it on a Hallmark card.

There was just so much happening all at once, and so many weird unrealistic scenarios squished in together.

It was like a sensory overload, with Blake’s crazy ranting and Paige’s random mood drops and Claire’s battles with Liam. A whole lot of crazy I tell you!

But yeah it was okay. I read it. I don

Snappy dialogue and a fast moving plot made this one of my favourite reads of the year!

I’ve been in a bit of a book slump, picking up and putting down a half dozen stories before I started Paige and Sebastian’s story. Once I started it I couldn’t put it down!

Paige was in a jam and Bass was reluctantly there to protect her. There was animosity from him and huge resentment from her, making their conversations, all their interactions, snarky and unexpectedly funny. Paige’s inner monologues were com

Warning - may cause bouts of laughter closely followed by gasps of disbelief - 😂 My abs are killing me!!
I absolutely loved Sebastian and Page's story - It was a wonderful mix of real-world emotions blended with just the right amount of romantic fiction magic 💖 to make the perfect read - fun and entertaining -no question about it
This was my first in this series - can definitely be read as a stand-alone though this is part of a series - The cast was so vivid and made you feel a part of the scene

Paige was the perfect match for Sebastian. Reading her antics and watching her get under his skin was a joy. Apart they were a little bit of a mess. He was grumpy and a little bit antisocial. He hated Paige's father and so it trickled down to her. He was really a jerk to her in the beginning. But when you see him with his family you know he is a great person. Paige has her set of issues. She is also a little antisocial. Her only friend is part of huge circle of family and friends. Paige has spen ...more

Pretty Daring is the second book in the Jaded series and is entirely stand-alone. The characters book one are present in this novel but you wouldn't realize there was a book before it by the way it was written. It is filled with witty sarcasm, drama, and sexual tension that will leave you laughing and sexually frustrated. I absolutely loved this book. This series is awesome and I can't wait to read book #3 Stupid Smart.

Any woman with working lady parts wouldn’t be able to resist taking a second to admire some glorious man candy in the flesh.

Paige is a senator’s daughter and her life is in danger thanks to her fathers. When she is shot, her father hires a security company to protect her. Sebastian does not want this job, he doesn’t want to have to babysit the daughter of the senator who destroyed his family’s jobs.

Sebastian is a private man, he keeps to himself and is there for his family no matter what so it

There wasn't anything about Pretty Daring that I didn't absolutely love! I mean there were times that I wanted to choke Bass out, but you know, it's pretty realistic to want to choke a man from time to time so yeah, great story! See, there's Paige, and she's a hot mess in the very best way in my opinion. She's a Senator's daughter, though her family isn't really a nice one, nor have they ever shown her any love, so it's really quite miraculous that she's as amazing as she is. She's Clara's best ...more

Pretty Daring introduces us to Paige and her best friend Clair. While at coffee, they discuss the threat that has been placed with Paige's father - a senator from New York. Clair is worried this is a real threat rather than how Paige's father sees it and enlists her brother's security firm. Enter Sebastian and his way to a promotion. When Paige is first almost shot by a sniper and then has her apartment ransacked, he offers to have her come live with him,

This leads to a whole slew of problems. S

Pretty Daring was my first book by author Jenn Hype. It was a fairly quick and easy read, not quite an insta-love, more an- ‘I hate you, but really I love you’ kinda story.
Sebastian has been hired to protect a wealthy Senator’s daughter who has received death threats. He starts off with a pretty biased opinion of Paige due to something that involved her father and his family. He was an anti-social a**ho!e at the best of times and did little to make Paige feel comfortable. But when someone actual

Pretty Daring is the second book in the Jaded series and is entirely a stand-alone read.  This story is filled with action, drama, and sexual tension that is off the charts.  There is witty repartee between most of the characters which lightens overall dark circumstance they are thrust into.  I give Pretty Daring 5-stars and can’t wait to read book #3 Stupid Smart.

Title: Pretty Daring (Jaded Series, Book 2)
Author: Jenn Hype
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rating: 5/5

ARC received in return for an honest review.

Jenn Hype has brought us another snort inducing, grin worthy, fun read filled with feisty characters who just love to banter and bicker with one another, an all round entertaining read that’s left me wanting more.

This book, although part of a series can be read as a stand-alone, it’s main protagonists are Paige, the hot mess, over-the-top drama queen with

A fast, fun read

The second book in the Jaded series, this was my first book by this author and I had no trouble reading it as a standalone. Though Blake was pretty freaking hilarious even as a supporting character, so I can’t wait to go back and read book 1. 😀

Full of laughs, I thought the author did a great job of balancing out the humor with a bit of angst and suspense. I really felt for Paige at how alienated she was from her parents, and the situation with Sebastian’s nephew was heartbreak

I enjoyed this book for the humor all on it's own. There was some really funny dialogue especially when Paige's best friend Clara was involved. The two of them together made the outrageous level go way up. But Clara was also really good at knowing where Paige was at emotionally, even without words having to be said.

It also had great secondary people in it including Brady, Sebastian’s brother, and Liam who has sparks flying with Clara. There are other people in the story like Blake who is anothe

Hype has a way of taking me from laughter to tears and back to laughter in the space of heartbeats. It's a gift and she definitely did it in this book. I flove this author. It doesn't matter what genre she writes. Her sense of humor shines through. I can see the talent and growth in her writing in each book. I imagine her heroines all carry at least a little piece of herself and can only wonder what she'd be like as a gal pal on Friday nights being that I'd love to hang with Blake, Paige, Clara, ...more

I am still laughing at this book. Pretty Daring is book 2 in the Jaded Series by Jenn Hype but is a complete standalone. I didn't even know there was a book 1 just reading it as is.

Pretty Daring stars Paige and Sebastian. Paige is the senator's daughter and after some threats that he didn't take seriously, she is in danger. Enter Sebastian. He works for Jade Securities and is in charge of her well being. They hate each other. Like all they do is fight, but that is part of what makes it hilariou

This second book in the Jaded series, Pretty Daring by Jenn Hype is definitely a sarcastic yet entirely witty story that makes you fall in love with not only the two main characters but the other secondary characters as well.

Good humour and snarky banter, but lacking in other areas … 3.5 stars

This is a decent romance with dry, subtle humour and snarky banter – both of which I greatly appreciated, but neither of which made me laugh out loud. I enjoyed the characters, but found their situations to be somewhat clichéd. The plot was pretty predictable and the story was at times overly long in my opinion. For me, there was too much internal dialogue and self-deliberating. I essentially skipped through most of that to th

I loved every second of Pretty Daring. I love Paige and her need to be her own person. Paige is just trying to be her own person, not the girl who has a shadow. When an unfortunate turn of events cause Paige to need protection Bass get assigned to the case. Bass has a past. One that hurts your heart. Bass is looking for revenge, but he never thought protecting the person that's father hurt his family would be on his radar.

Romance, action, comedy, hot guys, and some steamy scenes? This series has it all!

I absolutely love the Jaded series. As the headline says, these books have it all.
I love how Jenn weaves together the perfect amount of romance, comedy, and action.
It is easy to get bored with the same romance story lines book to book. This may be predominantly a romance, but Jenn creates the most amusing characters that you can't help but fall in love with them.

I enjoyed reading this book so very much. I laugh out loud so many times. It is such a fun read. Friendship and family ties are some things that I loved reading this story. It is so intense and a bit of steamy.

What's up world - I'm Jenn Hype.

Author, mother, wife, singer/songwriter, aspiring comedian - I wear many hats. Some of them fit, some of them look ridiculous, and all of them are fun. Life's too short to take anything too seriously, so I don't.

Sarcasm is my go-to, especially when it's most inappropriate. Need someone to make an uncomfortable situation even more awkward? I'm the girl for the job.
