[Book Review] Want You by Jen Frederick


Bitsy: I might be only nineteen, but I know what I want. It’s Leka Moore. I don’t care that he took me in when he was barely more than a kid himself. I don’t care that he raised me. I don’t care everyone thinks being with him is wrong. I know we belong together, and the only person I need to convince is him.

Leka: I found her in the corner of a dark alley. If I hadn’t taken her with me, she would’ve died that night—or maybe worse. Before I knew it, she became the light in my dark life, the haven from the madness. I watched her grow up. I tried to teach her right from wrong. Now that she’s an adult, I’m feeling things that no good man should ever feel. But then…I’ve never been a good man. I have a chance at redemption by saving her from the greatest danger of all—me.


Publication Date: July 1st, 2018
Characters: Bitsy and Leka


*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Going into this book I didn’t really know what I was going to get. The story’s theme was not what I was expecting which is usually a good thing but with this one it was a little disappointing if I’m truly honest, because I don’t like books that are set in a gang environment, its not my thing so I usually go out of my way to avoid them. This one doesn’t hint at that too much in the blurb so I was kinda blindsided by it. I carried on reading despite this because I hoped was going to somehow move on from the gang life. 

So the story kicks off with Leka finding Bitsey in a dark alley by herself when they are both kids. It jumps through time right up to Bitsey being 19 so you get a really nice backstory of how these characters have grown together and formed a bond. I liked Leka more than Bitsy, for some reason, I just could not connect to her at all and while I liked Leka he was at times really rather infuriating. 

There are some things in this book that I found to be a little far-fetched but that’s fiction for you. 

Now the redeeming part of the story is the ending. I won’t say too much because I don’t want to spoil it but I think it really made continuing worth the effort – for the love of all that is holy I’m hoping there will be a next book, which is saying a lot because I didn’t really love this one. 

My Rating 3/5 🌟🌟🌟
