Want It by Jennifer Chance Book Tour

In the latest tantalizing Rule Breakers novel from Jennifer Chance, an irresistible alpha male follows his ex into a deadly standoff—and reignites a heated affair.

For Erin Connelly, being a good girl isn’t such a bad thing. She’s working her dream job at a Boston art gallery and staying out of trouble, which is more than she can say for her deadbeat mom. Unfortunately, her mother’s latest misadventure lands her in the clutches of a Mexican drug lord. Now the only person who can save her is the one man Erin has no business asking for help: the sexy-as-sin army ranger who just so happens to be her former high school sweetheart.

Zander James is no gentleman—and no officer, either, thanks to Erin. Four years ago, she made a call that terminated his highest aspirations . . . and their relationship. He’s never forgiven her, but when he learns that Erin’s embarking on a half-baked rescue mission, he sure as hell can’t let her go alone. Now, with a treacherous enemy lying in wait, the electrifying tension between them may just be Zander’s undoing. Because while he may be able to keep Erin alive, he can’t promise to keep his hands off her.

She had to ask. Even if he laughed in her face, she at least had to ask.

Erin Connelly straightened in the back of the crowd of mourners, fussing with the belt of her vintage black dress. Three beefy men in suits stood in front of her, clearly ex-military—guys who’d once been all muscle, but were now mostly bravado and beer cheese. This was in her favor. She could peek between their thick bodies and see the family in their formal black or dress blues. She could see the casket, too, covered with the American flag, looking almost surreal beneath the brilliant August sun.

And, finally, she could see the young man standing at attention at the end of the first row, his shoulders ramrod straight, his manner intent.

Zander James. Standing not forty feet away from her.

He might as well still be halfway around the world.

Erin closed her eyes, thinking back to the email she’d gotten just three days earlier. The one from Zander’s mother, Sarah, with the stark subject line: Funeral Arrangements.

She’d just . . . locked up. Staring at the screen, her eyes blurring, her thoughts instantly jumping to the worst possible scenario, while a thousand pictures of Zander rushed through her mind. The daredevil who’d jumped off cliffs just to feel the thrill of the splashing water far below. The speed freak who’d pushed his beat-up Mustang too hard, too fast, punching it in the dead of night to break records he’d made up in his head. The boyfriend who’d wrapped his long arms around her in a circle of strength one minute with a kiss and a grin, then had taken off like a shot the next, unable to stand still when there was some abandoned building to climb, some road crew truck to hot-wire on the side of the road, some army plane to jump out of.

She hadn’t seen him in four years. And when she’d opened that email, she’d thought . . .

It didn’t matter what she’d thought.

Because it wasn’t Zander up there, lying in that casket. It was his father—still a terrible loss, still a tragedy, but . . . not Zander. Caught up in sudden emotion, Erin had done something she rarely ever allowed herself to do: she cried. Huge, heavy tears of gratitude and regret. She didn’t have any right to shed those tears, she knew. She had no claim on Zander anymore, not even on his memory. In fact, right at this moment, looking at him . . . she wasn’t so sure she’d made the right choice to see him today, no matter how desperate she was. He looked so different, now. Taller. Bigger. His uniform seemed to fit him like a second skin, moving with his body, hisevery step one of grace, precision, and—something else. Power? Lethalness? Was that even a word?

Zander had become the warrior he’d always bragged to her that he would be.

And as much as she hated to admit it . . . she needed a warrior right about now.

This is the third in the Rule Breakers series and I loved it too. Each story is about a different couple but they interact with each story line some, so if you only read this one it will not leave you hanging. Erin works in an art gallery where she should be displaying her own art and living her life. When she gets an email regarding the funeral of her ex-boyfriend, she doesn't know what to think. Can she see Zander again, give her condolences and leave? But she has to talk to Zander, she needs some answers to help her get her mother back. After about a year her mom calls saying she is being held in Mexico and they want money. When Zander finally gets Erin to tell him the truth, he is not letting her go alone, he will go with her if only to keep her safe. When things heat up between them, they both want to forget the past but it will always be there. Can she forgive herself for ruining his life? Will he finally see that it was his actions and not hers that set the wheels in motion? If you are looking for a great story with a great couple, then you should read this one and also enjoy the whole series. Can't wait for the next one.

This is the first story I've read by this author and I quite liked her writing style. Want It is well paced and I like the way Erin and Zander's past was revealed to us in dribs and drabs.

While the story line of the Army Ranger helping the ex in distress is contrived, a lot of this story focuses on the relationship between Erin and Zander and their relationship is far more interesting that the trouble Erin finds herself in.

One thing really bugged me about this story and it is the reason for their breakup. Even by the end of the story was I still pissed as h*ll at how this was dealt with. I felt Erin was 100% in the right. The way Zander and even Erin to an extent, treated the event that originally broke them up bugged the crap out of me and I just wanted to punch Zander – and the desire never really went away.

In spite of that I did enjoy Want It and I'll be looking out for more work by Jennifer Chance.

This is book 3 in the Rule Breakers series; however it is also a total standalone. I have not read the other books but in no way did I feel I was missing anything. I am left full of questions as to what will happen with these characters and will be getting the others in the series to learn more about them. The sexual chemistry between the two characters was beyond belief and was more the focal point of the overall storyline. An overall good read.

I read this as a standalone, but intend to go back and read the previous two as I liked the style and connected with the author's writing.

There is definitely a strong message in this story about being honest and open in communication, and also about how youth makes those things doubly difficult. Let alone when life has dumped an irresponsible, or unbending parent on you. I enjoyed how the plot unfolded, and how things will potentially be rebuilt - so from the ashes of disaster, most definitely there was hope. The relationship between Zander and Erin is wonderfully passionate, and yet she's as flighty as a butterfly. I really smiled at the reading she had done ...

Thoughtful, intense and very enjoyable read - thank you Ms. Chance.
