Reviewing Even Though It's Breaking

I was thrilled to be sent an ARC for Even Though It’s Breaking by the magnificent Shannon Jump. Let’s get the important stuff out of the way- 5 ⭐️. If you haven’t preordered this one yet- best hop to it!

Allie wakes up in the hospital. She has fallen victim to a brutal physical and sexual assault. However, she has no recollection of the attack. Before the attack, Allie had a great career in publishing and a handsome boyfriend, Tarek. Still- she can’t help but feel like she wants, no needs, something more to feel fulfilled. Suffocated in her relationship she decides to part ways with Tarek… little does she know there is another man in her life. His name is Owen. She has never met him but he is always watching and waiting….

This story was such a rollercoaster. One second I would be in tears. The next I would be giggling. The steam was *chefs kiss* and the twists- they literally do not stop! Even in the epilogue, there was a reveal that nearly made my brain explode.

Also, I am floored at the author’s ability to write about such heavy content and handle it with such care. There is no violence merely for the sake of violence. Each event carries so much importance to the overall plot in this intricate web of twists, deceits, and holy shit moments.

Congrats to the author on an amazing sophomore novel! I loved My Only Sunshine and dare I say I love Even Though It’s Breaking more? Even Though It’s Breaking publishes 10/26/21!

Reviewing Wouldn't You Love to Love Her

Oh my gosh.

I could put this book down.. legit stayed up past midnight to finish it plus read it all in one day.

Shannon's writing just hooks you in and doesn't release you until you're done. I'm a fan.

The spice, the murder.. the smurder. She somehow gave you everything you didn't know you needed. The twists! My jaw hit the damn floor.

Reviewing My Only Sunshine

When a book starts with a trigger warning, I know I’m in for a very bumpy ride. And y’all, I was. For me, it’s rare when I come across a book that has me feeling every single emotion with every chapter. And I mean it when I said I felt EVERY emotion. I have bawled, I have been angry, I probably threw my kindle because of my frustration, I yelled at the book. I cried happy tears towards the end. I knew domestic abuse was a thing. I just didn’t know and understand how bad it can get. I know here in the future, I will be getting the physical copy of this book for my own collection and treasure it dearly.

Guys, do yourself a favor and get this book. Read it. Review it. Cry. You won’t regret it. If you have Kindle Unlimited, it’s available for download.

Reviewing Even Though it's Breaking

“It’s like I’m some broken doll that everybody wants to sew back together but nobody has the right color thread and the needle isn’t even sharp enough to poke through the surface.”

First off let me say WOW!!! Shannon killed it with her sophomore novel. I thought I was blown away by My Only Sunshine but this one equally blew me away. I was hooked from page one and I am in love with Shannon’s writing style. This book is told in first person and has a dual narrative so we get perspectives from both Allie and Owen.

I definitely related to Allie not feeling like her apartment was home anymore because I have felt that way for 4 years since my own attack in my home. Relating to books makes me love them even more. I had mixed emotions about Owen but he was hands down my favorite character and Shannon nailed it on writing his character!! I loved the twists and the ending was fantastic. I am already looking forward to Shannon’s next novel and know she will be an auto-buy author for me. I’m looking forward to seeing where this writing takes her because I see big things 👀

Side note: I also loved Shannon’s heartfelt acknowledgment at the end acknowledging bookstagrammers and her ARC readers/Jump Street Team. Indie authors f*cking rock. Thank you to Shannon for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Reviewing Even Though it's Breaking

This book is breathtakingly beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time as the story unfolds and we see the main character face some of the most difficult hardships a person can experience. Shannon doesn’t shy away from these hard topics and writes the scenarios with such care and emotion that you feel so connected with the main character and her journey. The dual points of view were great and enhanced the plot and character development throughout the book. The ending was solid and the story left a lasting impression on me. I highly recommend this psychological thriller. Shannon, I’m so grateful that I received this arc and will continue to be a fan of the many books you write in the future ❤️

Reviewing My Only Sunshine

This contemporary fiction novel is loosely based on Shannon Jump’s actual life. The story is about Brynn Reeves who navigates through a horribly abusive marriage, with two children. The story shows Brynn’s strength throughout the novel, and she leaves readers in awe of her determination and love for her family.

This is a story about marriage, abuse, family, friends, and loyalty. Jump will alternate from different years, which helps the reader see the difficulties Brynn experienced. I absolutely loved this novel! There were parts that were definitely hard to read due to the content, especially knowing the author may have gone through something very similar, but Jump’s writing and excellent storytelling made it difficult to put down. I highly recommend this, and I’m looking forward to reading more from Shannon Jump!

Reviewing Even Though it's Breaking

I'm always horribly nervous to read the sophomore release of an author whose debut was 5⭐'s for me. Even more so when said debut was partially biographical for them. A mixture of fear and anticipation bubbles inside me when I open that sophomore book for the first time (and hopefully not the last).

I need not have worried with Shannon Jump. This was everything I wanted and more! As much as I adored My Only Sunshine, I think I loved this one even more!!! Once you've read it...come talk to me about my boy Owen, love love loved him!!! I cannot wait to see what Lady Jump does next.

Reviewing Wouldn't You Love to Love Her

I squealed first thing Monday morning when I saw my ARC of Wouldn’t You Love to Love Her by the fabulous @sjump4203 hit my inbox yesterday morning. I took a photo with my favorite thrifted mug and planned to post a fun #coffeeandcurrentlyreading post Tuesday morning and then I read the first page, and the next, and the next, and then I finished the whole book in two sittings.

This.Is.How.A.Thriller.Should.Be.

The character development, the quick-witted dialogue, the imagery, and description as well as one of the most unique pov styles I have ever read in a book have officially made this story my FIRST FIVE STAR book of 2022!

The ending was magnificent and I need a sequel, prequel, never-ending series of this asap!! I know I know it takes time but this story and these characters have officially taken real estate in my mind.

This book releases on 3.1.22 so go ahead and pre-order it now and it will also be available on kindle unlimited.

If you haven’t checked out Shannon’s other books; My Only Sunshine and Even Though It’s Breaking you can have those to tide you over until pub date.

FIVE STARS from Mrs. Frost

Reviewing Like a Bird in Flight

LIKE A BIRD IN FLIGHT is book 2 of 3 in the Crimes of Passions series. You absolutely should NOT read this book before reading WOULDN'T YOU LOVE TO LOVE HER.

Picking up right where book one left off, we find Ivy Rogers, who is so used to getting her way, in a predicament. Her love triangle blew up in her face; her lover is now sitting in prison, and her husband left her. Used to his attention and his money, Ivy is desperate to get him back, but there's just one small problem that's cramping her style--she's a mom now, and her husband Sawyer doesn't want kids. The baby isn't his anyway, so it shouldn't be a problem, right? Wait, WHAT?

Depressed and lacking any sort of maternal instincts, Ivy dumps her baby with a live-in nanny and falls back into her addictive lifestyle, showing up in brothels and drinking herself into a stupor. She has no idea the trouble that's brewing behind the scenes, and when things took that dramatic turn they did, I couldn't swipe the pages fast enough. When I got to that ending, all I could think about was how in the world Shannon going to resolve all of these messes in book three?

I LOVE this series, which is dark and voyeuristic, full of characters you will claim to hate but secretly admire. I adore the fact that so many of my Bookstagrammer friends are used as names for the characters. I tried very hard not to see their faces as I was reading!

This gem will be available on July 19, 2022. Endless thanks to the author for allowing me to be a member of her street team and have early access to this book!

Reviewing Like a Bird in Flight

Obsessed! Loved this book just as much as book 1 in the Crimes of Passion series! You might as well plan to block out a chunk of time to read this in one sitting! I guarantee once you start it, you won’t want to stop until you reach the end!


What a highly addicting, sexy, and shocking psychological thriller. Twists and turns and I loved the multiple viewpoints. It’s weird how you can feel sympathy for a deranged character, but I definitely did. Getting inside Ivy’s head will disturb you and entertain you in a big way!


This is a must-read series! I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Thank you so much Shannon Jump for the advanced reader copy!
