End of Day (Jack & Jill #1) by Jewel E. Ann REVIEW

Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life.

Four caskets. Two bodies.

Jessica and Jude Day witness their funeral and that of their parents a few yards away from mourning family and friends. Stripped of the only life they’ve ever known, the Days say goodbye to San Francisco forever.

Six months later, two thirty-year-old misfits with elite self-defense skills and penchants for alcohol, sex, and trouble arrive like an earthquake to Peaceful Woods, a retirement community in Omaha, Nebraska, that thrives on rules and gossip. Welcome home, Jackson and Jillian Knight.

Jackson celebrates his new beginning by embracing his job and wiping his cavalier past clean with a temporary oath of celibacy. But Jillian’s past is branded into her soul—the deaths, the insanity, Dr. Luke Jones, and the need to make her lovers bleed. Her chance for redemption comes in the form of a next door neighbor, one Senior Master Sergeant Monaghan. He’s sexy, dangerously alluring, and riddled with emotional issues from years of service. He’s also … So. Damn. Grumpy.

Their mission is simple: Let go, start over, don’t kill anyone, and pray that nobody wakes the dead.

Review

★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★

Hands down one, the heroine in this book is of the best female characters I have come across in forever, and this was one of the most intriguing and complex dark romances I have read in a long time!

End of Day was a brilliant suspenseful read that had equal measures of humour, emotion, sex and drama.

“He’d found a woman who could take pain. But Jillian didn’t just take it – she beseeched it.”

Thirty year old Jillian Knight used to be Jessica Day, a woman who has loved and lost and a woman who is trying to be normal. Along with her twin brother Jackson, she has fled her old life in San Francisco to live in a small community of older people who find it amusing to see this sexy and sassy woman collecting her mail in her sexy shorts and red rain boots.

“Strength acknowledges weakness, it doesn’t ignore it.”

Jillian is haunted and has demons that one can only imagine, she is so very tortured, but she is a wonderfully funny and strong character that I LOVED, I actually have a girl crush on her.

As for the men in her life, SWOON! Loved them all.

This was a fantastic beginning to the trilogy, the writing was amazing and although it took me a good 30% to really get into the story, all the little details were relevant to the overall plot-line. so I am glad I stuck with it.

End of Day is a dark romantic suspense, told in past and present, third person POV.
