Jack with a Twist is the second book by Brenda Janowitz. Her first book, Scot on the Rocks was published in 2007 and describes the misadventures of Brooke Miller, a
attorney, who attends her ex-boyfriend’s wedding. Manhattan
In Jack with a Twist, we meet Brooke Miller again and this time, it is for her own wedding! Let me first tell you this. You don’t have to read Scot on the Rocks before you read Jack with a Twist. I had no idea about Scot on the Rocks when I read Jack with a Twist and it was a super read. There are references to the previous book in here at all!
Anyways, getting back to the book, Brooke is all caught up with planning her own wedding. Just when she finds the perfect gown that she loves (and it doesn’t make her look fat!), she also lands the biggest case of her life at work! How much better can things get? Perfect, right? Hmm… wrong! Unfortunately for Brooke, the opposing attorney is proving to be quite a handful. He doesn’t hesitate to pull all the dirty tricks in the law books and is hell bent on overloading her with work – so much so that she doesn’t even have time to finish planning her own wedding! But wait a minute, is there even going to be a wedding? Highly improbable considering that the attorney from hell is none other than Brooke’s fiancé and the love of her life – Jack!
Jack with a Twist is hilarious and a perfect light read. Brooke is a lovable character and of course, completely relatable to (I am sure you’re mom’s nagged you about buying dresses with sleeves that hide your fat arms, right??). I really enjoyed reading this book… and who wouldn’t? Didn’t you find the premise of this book interesting?? I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a light read.
I have to thank Brenda Janowitz and her publicist for sending me a review copy of this book!
