Review – Jealousy by S.L. Scott

d5224-fromtheinsideout-jealousy1

We shared a love that regulated every heartbeat and every breath we took. It was all encompassing. I thought our love could withstand time and anything thrown our way.

I was wrong. So wrong.

I used to be happy. I used to be Juliette Weston when Dylan Somers filled my life with promises of love and a happy ever after. But when he took my heart and broke it into a million pieces, I became someone else entirely. In one afternoon, I lost my soul mate. I lost everything I knew myself to be.

Three years later, the man who destroyed me is back.

To assuage his guilt? To finish the job? It doesn’t matter… I won’t let him this time. I’m stronger. I’ve moved on. He won’t affect me.

This is a story of love and betrayal. Pain and loss. Happiness and fate. It’s about finding your true destiny.

This is our story.

Jealousy tells the story of Jules, a girl who’s been mourning the end of a relationship with the love of her life for the past three years. The second in the ‘From the Inside Out’ series (the first, Scorned, was fabulous), Jealousy documents her deepening relationship with Austin, the sexy businessman who makes a play for Jules. At the same time though, the reappearance of Dylan (the lost love of her life) causes Jules to second guess herself. And she finds herself trying to work out what it is she really wants from these men.

It’s an angsty ride, but told with all the wit and sophistication I’ve come to expect from S.L. Scott. And though Jules is vulnerable, she’s also strong and feisty, a girl who has had to work hard to pull herself out of the pit of her misery and carve out a place in life. As for the two heroes – Dylan and Austin–I have to say I love them both. While some readers are ‘Team Austin’ or ‘Team Dylan’ I kind of want her to be with both of them. Hint – S.L. Scott, feel free to use that idea for a fifth book in the series 😉

The next two parts in the series – Dylan and Austin are due to be released on September 29th, and allow you to opt for a Dylan or Austin ending. I absolutely love the concept of this story. It’s like a Choose Your Own Adventure for adults, with the opportunity to decide which way the heroine should turn. I’m still not sure which man I want her to stick with, so I’ll be buying both of them and see which ending makes me the happiest.

The writing’s great, the story is excellent and most of all it’s a killer concept. Now I’m counting down the days until the next books are released!
