BOOK REVIEW: Jenn Reinvented
by Grayson Avery
ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):
Jennifer Colby-Kittler is the boss. They even call her The Jenneral.
But married life is hard, even when you call the shots.
When the sizzle in her and husband Russ’ romance goes AWOL, Jenn calls in the big guns. They’re going to forge ahead and have a second child whether Russ likes it or not. The only problem is that Russ is leaning toward not.
When the Kittler’s new baby mission doesn’t go according to Jenn’s plan, the tension grows, and a mutiny in their marriage unfolds. Jenn’s sister (the lovable Kait from Project Kaitlyn, book one in the Sweet Water Circle series) and friends intervene, forcing her to explore her inner being by attending yoga classes hosted by a dreamy new instructor. Jenn reluctantly agrees, needing to learn to how to let go of control before a civil war leads to divorce. But when the guru falls for her (desperately wanting to also explore her inner being) and an old flame finds out that Jenn’s marriage is under attack and attempts to plant his flag, Jenn doesn’t know which path to choose.
Can Jenn learn to let go before her life spirals out of control? Should she save her marriage before it’s too late, start over with someone new, or go it alone?
With hysterical antics, witty and humorous dialogue, and a strong character arc, you’ll love the follow-up to Project Kaitlyn. Jenn Reinvented is the second book in the hilarious Sweet Water Circle series, exploring the relationships, life adventures, and personal growth of a small circle of friends, who you’re gonna want to hang out with, which is good, because their stories are ready to be told in the rest of the Sweet Water Circle series!

I was a given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Here it is…
I have SUCH mixed feelings about this book. First of all, I assumed the author was a woman. Maybe that was a stupid assumption with the name Grayson, but given the category (rom-com) and the cover, I just thought the author was a woman. It was clear to me within the first two pages of the book, however, that the author was not a woman.
Although, now having said that, I just tried to confirm it and I can’t find a picture of the author or a bio that contains any pronouns, so maybe I’m wrong. Or maybe there’s a reason the author wants to remain ambiguous given the reaction I had to reading one of their books.
After my initial aversion to the content due to the constant sexual references and innuendos, I did get into the story. It was a bit far-fetched, but it was an enjoyable storyline. Then the ending had me annoyed.
I didn’t hate this book, but I can’t say there’s anyone I would recommend it to.
