He’s the shoulder she leans on.He worships her.She shields and protects him.He watches over her.They’re soul mates for life.They’re not lovers; they’re best friends.Their struggle to find someone who can handle their intense bond is met with a roller coaster of raw emotion, loyalty and heartache. Follow their journey to find love.
When Heather Cooper married Peter, she thought that she had finally found someone who could handle the inseparable bond she shares with her gay best friend, Justin Perrotta. It’s only a matter of time, however, before jealousy rears its ugly head and Peter’s true feelings emerge. He starts drinking, and his erratic behavior threatens their marriage.
Burned by an ex-boyfriend, Justin refuses to open his heart to love again. Wild relationships and one-night stands leave him lonely and unfulfilled, even though he won’t admit it. He finds love when he least expects it, but his fear of commitment threatens to ruin the best thing that has ever happened to him.
In this unique read, the reader gets two separate romances – Heather’s (m/f) and Justin’s (m/m) and their friendship, which is the real romance.
When I was offered the chance to read and review Jealousy I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into. To be honest all I knew was that Jenna Galicki was an author I had never read and my friend LaDonna was very, very insistent that I had to read her. So I said yes. I knew from LaDonna that Jenna was well known for her rocker series. That was what I was expecting. While I was extremely wrong, Jealousy had no rockers, what I got instead was beyond comparison.
What did I get? I’ve been trying to get the perfect wording for that question and have failed miserably. There are almost no words for what Jealousy is. I rarely say that a book is one of the best in whatever year it might be, or that it is my favorite for the year of such and such. So please understand when I say that Jealousy is one of the best love stories I have read in years, to me that is a HUGE thing. Yet I have to say just that.
Jealousy is not your typical love story. It is not a romance where the boy/girl, boy/boy, girl/girl end up together (while that does happen it is not the story of those romances, they just happen). You don’t watch them fall in love and end up married with 2.5 children. Jealousy is a love story in the purest of ways. It’s the love story of two best friends. It is a book that lets you experience how two soul mates don’t need sex or romance to know that they will always be together.
Galicki has given her readers one of the most epic love stories of all time. It is straight from the heart and it includes all the ups and downs of any true love story. Her main characters will pull at all of your heart strings as you watch two best friends hold each other up, fight for the other, fight with each other, and defeat all odds.
Jealousy and Galicki’s talent will stick with me for years to come. I can not recommend this book enough. It is truly a 10 out of 5 stars. I will definitely say it is very likely that this will be my favorite book of 2020.
