    1. I don t even know how to write this review I wish I could rate it higher than a 5 star read because it definitely is This book blew away every other book I ve read this year Ren grabbed a hold of me and did not let go, she still has me in her grips and I m okay with that I can t stop thinking about this book We got a glimpse of Jared in The Wild Sparks series and I never imagined he would be the way he is He is nothing like his sister Hadley Jared has some issues, well he has a lot of issues He [...]

    3. Favorite Quotes I never changed my mind about loving you I just admitted it to myself and then grew the balls to tell you I love you, Kit Kat Not just present My past and future too How long are you going to stand there and gawk You move slower than a legless turtle She s my everything I went without her for so long, and I never want to go back to that place I don t even want to imagine my life without her in it any The day we met, she changed my life, but the day I walked away from her, changed [...]

    4. The mark of a great writer is leaving the reader wanting I just finished Ren Alexander s book The Keys to Jericho and that is exactly what I want MORE I love books that pull you so far into the story that you don t notice how long or short the book is All I know is that when my kindle stopped turning pages I was a little sad that the journey had ended I have been a fan of Ms Alexander s for awhile and was than excited when she asked me to beta read this book Little did I know that this book wo [...]

    5. I loved The Wild Sparks series, when I heard there would be a prequel, I never imagined that this is what Ren had in mind.The story of Jericho Jared , Hadley s younger brother from The Sparks series Catching only a glimpse of him in the series, I had to read this book to find out Jared Beckett, a man scorn, a true friend, who believes that love does not exist and anyone that falls into it is pretty much just looking for heartbreak or is a sucker.His 2 sidekicks, whom I refer to as the Pony Boys [...]

    6. If you pay any attention to my blog at all, you ll know that I am thoroughly obsessed with Ren Alexander s Wild Sparks series, specifically Finn Wilder and that, frankly, I haven t been able to stop thinking about it in almost a year So naturally I couldn t wait to pick up a new book from her Even if I was a little worried that she could never top Finn Hadley s story Ren has done it again She has this amazing way of creating characters that feel like close, personal friends I feel everything th [...]

    7. LOVED this book, Ren has a talent to writing, you can feel what she puts in words, you laugh out loud, shed a tear and get anxious about scenes between characters to the point you have to adjust your neck and remember to breathe After reading Keys to Jericho I want to be one of the friends of each characters and hang around with them and be a part of their lives The sex scenes are, let me say HOT Highly recommend this book and all that Ren Alexander writes, I am a total fan Thank you so much it [...]

    11. SNS Rating 4.66 Sharlene s Review Where to even start Second chances are a terrific thing and that is just what Jared and Kit get Although they wouldn t have needed a second chance if they had just opened their mouths to begin with The characters are all well developed, even the secondary ones At times I felt I was there with them This book is angsty, full of drama, hot sex and can be read as a stand alone Although it was a tad on the long side, the author does an excellent job of moving the sto [...]

    12. OMG I have come to the conclusion that I just cannot properly review Ren Alexander Her stories are just so intense it is insane I always feel tortured but yet completely sated after I read herSo we met Jared Jericho Jare Sonic in the Wild Sparks series , he is Hadley s brother I really didn t know what to expect of him but he totally surprised me First off I will say he is worse than a pre teen hormonal girl OMG his attitude is downright horrible and although I LOVE the banter between him and ev [...]

    13. There was much that I liked about this story, but Jericho Jared tried my patience than once For me, it was a slow start I was not fond of Jared I did like Kat, Dash, Rio, and even Liberty He was very rude to Liberty, Rio, and Dash I wondered at times why Dash and Rio even stuck around As the story unfolded, I began to understand Jared and why he was so closed off and even mean to everyone, except for Kat I liked the colorful characters of Dash, Shell, and Victor I found myself laughing at times [...]

    14. Jericho is hard to like in most of this book He s painfully mean in his sarcasm and dry humor It s obvious it comes from a place of pain but he doesn t let it go and he s so caustic with everyone And heaven help you if he thinks you ve crossed him in some way And honestly, his family and all his friends are really annoying with their Talk to me crap alleeaking.time I wouldn t talk either because they d annoy the crap out of me Though I do understand why they do it He doesn t talk to ANYONE And b [...]

    15. Jared aka Jericho is a hard character to like He s rude, brash, and sarcastic in a mean way I honestly found myself wondering throughout the first half of the book why his friends were friends with him If someone treated me the way he treated them, I would have said goodbye a long time ago That made me think that perhaps he was a different person when they were younger, but as we learn about his past, he was always kind of like this, although it got worse as he got older All I can say is his fr [...]

    16. Let me start out by saying that Ren Alexander put my heart through the ringer with The Keys to Jericho With that being said5 stars isn t enough on the rating LOVED this book.Jared Beckett is a tortured soul due to his mother leaving him when he was a toddler He doesn t care what people think of him and that love is for fools He has 2 friends that he is as close to as he can be with anyone They are trying to help him find the love that will thaw his heart out He had fallen in love with a girl in [...]

    17. What an emotional rollercoaster This novel was one hell of a ride.I didn t believe I could possibly be so pissed off at a character as much as I was with Jared.This was one of the longest novels I ve ever read Charles Dickens would be proud it was a trilogy set in a single book Jared s reactions to Kat throughout the story were so uncalled for.trating the reader ever so much Being stuck in his past,he simply lived a life of bitter lonliness,keeping to himself,silently suffering and not even allo [...]

    18. O.M.G WOW Are there even words to describe how much I loved this book Jared will capture your heart and then throw it back at you You cant help but to love to hate him He is perfectly imperfect I related to this book in so many ways, it really had a deep impact on me personally The book was very satisfying leaving you with the complete story and no stone left unturned I was so thankful that Ren Alexander made this book the length that it is I got my fill of Jared and Kat plus some This book brou [...]

    20. Like thisI loved the Wild Sparks series but the journey I just went on indescribable This is a journey that defines the saying actions speak louder than words Jared has so much love to give but he just is incapable of opening up and so damn unsure of love himself Kat, she needs the words like every other woman and has plenty of self doubt herself I felt like I needed to be medicated while reading because I could get mad at Jericho but I got seriously pisssed if anyone else was saying anything ag [...]

    21. Oh My God This bookI have no words, really It has me twisted in knots It makes me question my judgment I was sure that I hated Jared as soon as I read this book He s the biggest dick I ve read in a book But that changes everything when he got his head out of his ass and get his shit together and went after the love of his life.So, here I am I ended up loving Jared I think I even love him than I love Finn Wilder You guys need to read this book It s long, but its worth it It is funny, heartbreaki [...]

    24. Let me start this by saying I have been a huge fan of Ren Alexander since her first novel but every single time I sit and read her words I am blown away This novel is massive, but it shouldn t have been any other way The story of Jared and Kat is one that should not be rushed I loved the detail in this story The pain, anguish, love, tears, laughs I could go on forever Can love truly exist years after being separated Do soul mates really exist Is love enough or is it something for the weak This i [...]

JaredWow loved this book with Jared and Kat wayyyyyyy than Finn and Hadley s I like how aspects of that series were incorporated into this story, gives a much broader picture of Finn and Hadley s relationship I m not sure if I m still a Finnatic any after reading Jared s perspective Looking forward to the next book by Ren less than 2 months away

    29. Where to begin Holy Shiznet This book was an emotional rollercoaster for sure I thought I was going to end hating Jared because he comes across like a total a hole Slowly but surely, he got under my skin and I just wanted to wrap him up in my arms and comfort him.I love Ren Alexander s writing style The way she manages to convey the emotions of her characters and make you feel the same, is pure talent The characters are so well written and developed She even manages to compel you to grow emotion [...]
