What happens when a high-heeled diva goes camping with her sister’s dog?

Avery Montgomery, fashionista and preacher’s daughter, needs a ride from Milwaukee to Los Angeles.

“Make my death quick, and please don’t tie me up. I’m claustrophobic.”

Jewel E. Ann is an amazing writer. I’ve read many of her books and most of them I’ve enjoyed. I really wanted to love this one. I mean, it has a vegan hero!!! I was so excited to read it. The first half, it just didn’t work for me at all. I almost DNF’d it many times, but I’m glad I hung in there. I ended up really enjoying the last half.

Avery Montgomery is going through a rough time, so she drives to see her dad. She’s dog sitting her sister’s dog, so she brings him along. As soon as

A lot of people won't like this book.

The heroine is vain, selfish, spoiled, immature, insecure, needy and fake.

It’s irritating as hell.


J. E. Ann made her that way on purpose. There is a reason for this. There is a lesson to be learned.

Unlike other immature and annoying heroines out there who are portrayed as awesome but are not. Far from it.

The main theme of this story is learning about oneself and growing as a person. People will either love it or hate it. I liked it a lot

I have quite the contradicting feelings about this book. There were times I laughed out loud and enjoyed myself but sadly, there were also times the characters made me mad, frustrated and annoyed.

The book is a combination of the good and the bad as far as I am concerned.

Actually, this book had the potential of being a new “Hating Game” for me; I got that vibe from it at the beginning but the hero and heroine in "The Hating Game" are both awesome, which makes that book epic whereas here, the ch

Surprise new release by author Jewel E. Ann! If you read Undeniably You, this new book, you are going to LOVE!!!! Because the story is about Sydney’s sister, Avery.

Avery is a bit (or a lot) of a Diva. She’s had terrible luck in love but recently things have been looking up for her after she started dating an older millionaire. Her rich boyfriend bought Avery her own spa and spoils her to no end. But unfortunately for Avery, her “prince charming “ turned out to be just li

***4.5 stars***

What I admire about Jewel E. Ann and her storytelling is no matter how different certain characters are from who I am as a person, I can always in some way relate and understand where they’re coming from. Avery is so different from who I am but I had so much fun in her and Jake’s company.
She doesn’t hide or shy away from who she is and what she enjoys in life. In this case materialistic things and her appearance.

The evolution or journey Avery goes through thanks to Jake was beaut

Favorite Quotes:

I admit it—if only to myself—I, Avery Montgomery, am a wuss. I’ve canceled clients because of an irritated hangnail. Menstrual cramps leave me bedridden for twenty-four hours. And I’m one of those patients who require nitrous oxide just to get my teeth cleaned. It’s genetic. There has to be a low pain tolerance gene.

Yeah, all men are lying, cheating, monkey-spanking dick cheese.

My life is a game of limbo—how low can I go?

If you are looking for a funny book low on angst that will have you giggling all along don't look further!

This book was a total surprise. A gift from Jewel E Ann to her followers.

After having read a fantastic story on WWII and a heartbreaking but beautiful YA contemporary I was looking for something light and fun. This book was a godsend!

Avery and Jake banter and bickering was a delicious and fun long foreplay!

Full disclosure, written rom-coms almost always fall short for me and some of the banter in Naked Love was totally lost on me. I am sure 99% of other readers will think I'm crazy and that's OK, I am.
Let's start with Avery because I am almost always harder on heroines than I am heroes. That my friends is because, to quote Tammy Wynette's Stand By your Man, "cause after all he's just a man" I give them more of a pass because men can be totally clueless sometimes

But Avery, man o' man WHAT A PRINCE

With Naked Love, Jewel E. Ann dives head first into the enemies-to-lovers trope, and the result is a fun and sometimes emotional love story featuring memorable characters.

If it’s true that opposites attract then Jake and Avery should be stuck together like Crazy Glue. Too bad they’re likely to kill each other first. Avery is a down-on-her-luck mega diva. Everyone is fond of Jake, the modest nice guy who takes an instant disliking to Avery. They seem to bring out the worst in each other. The two

It was hilarious at times, I laughed out loud again and again.
Then there were these serious parts too, which were just as good.
This was just from start to finish a fantastic book. I loved it.

How is it possible to feel completely broken and yet stronger than ever at the same time?

So I wasn’t looking for this book, but I downloaded it and read it and I’m so glad that I did.

Road trip. Sort of enemies to lovers. Two people who don’t seem to fit together, but also fit together oh so well. Avery’s a princess on the outside, and Jake is a vegan (slang for a male body part that begins with d and ends with ick) cheese on the outside. They both judge each other from the start but during their

It was my hardest decision to give stars to this book. Because this is my sixth book of Jewel E. Ann. I adore her writing, her wits, her imagination. If she even had wrote a shopping list, I’d have been devotedly read it. Not think for a second.😃😃😃
But there is a big challenge for this novel. There was an annoying heroine and obnoxious hero treats her like a doormat( of course in the middle of book, his attitude has changed but I’m not still a big fan any one of them)

Artık bu tarz kitaplar okumak istemiyorum, çünkü Jake Matthews gibi erkek karakterlerinin gerçek dünyada var olduklarına inanmıyorum. O yüzden böylesine mükemmel erkek karakterleri ve aşkları okurken 1948284683864876 defa falan düşüneceğim. İnsanın canı çekiyor, ulan diyor, keşke benim de böyle bir meteorum olsa! Kıskanıyoruz yani, olmuyor böyle.

Bir de kitabın kapağındaki 'e' harfinin çiziliş şekli sinirimi bozdu.

Hepsi bu kadar.

“What if I can’t let go?”

I really enjoy Jewel E. Ann's stories and I was excited to get to this one. However, I'm not a fan of weekly chapter stories and I'm glad I was able to hold off until the full book was released.

So imagine my shock when I found out this was related "pool boy" and his girl! To be fair, I had an inkling with the dog but it's been a while since I had read their story.

If you are a subscriber of Jewel E Ann’s newsletter, then you know that every month a few chapters of Naked Love was available to follow along as she wrote them. And if you aren’t, then you were missing out. But have no fear! Naked Love, in all its wondrous glory, has been published in its entirety a month early and it does not disappoint. Avery Montgomery and Jake Matthews are complete opposites and their journey to love is anything but easy. Jewel E Ann knows how to strip characters bare, draw ...more

Rip-roaringly hilarious, emotionally rich and snaughlingly crazy, this book has jewel's trademark, razor-sharp humour totally unleashed. She holds no snappy banter back. Lets her brain run away with concocting as many giggle worthy scenarios as she can muster.
I ended up laughing every time I read it in her newsletter, which btw you ALL should subscribe to.Her blog is my guilty pleasure...
Back to the book. Avery has been cheated on by "Anthony Crooked Dick Bianchi" with the cook of all people!!!

Of course this book was a joy because this author is fabulous. And while it had many funny hilarious parts it also made my heart twitch from time to time and I fell in love.

4 1/2 stars. Avery is a real piece of work. Some might be put off by her attitude. KEEP GOING! There is a reason for all of it and discovering what makes Avery tick was a crazy ride. For the reader and Jake! Their cross country trek was full of bickering, laughter, tears, and love. Naked Love was a lesson in looking below the surface to the real person and loving all of them, warts and all. And I adored every minute especially the wonderful epilogue.

Naked Love has been teasing me for months! Not because I was reading the monthly installments through Jewel’s newsletter but because I wasn’t. I was envious of everyone enjoying it all this time but I’m impatient with my stories; I need them all at once. I love to carve out time and read Jewel’s books from start to finish or as close to it as I can get. Naked Love all at once was so worth the wait!

I haven't laughed out loud at a book for quite some time, and this one had me gigglesnorting like a loon. And then next minute, I was swoooning so hard over Jake, that my head was spinning.

Wow never expect this from Avery & Jake
So many funny moment in this books that keep me laughing - but to find Avery raw emotions through so many self struggles ( to find her true self ) can’t keep my tears away

This book of Jewel E Ann is giving a bitter sweet symphony

Love yourself for who you really are before you can love someone else is a very important message I found from this book

I must keep the last star since I found Jake grovelling quite lacking ✌🏼
