Nina Kennedy was alive…but not living…until she met him.

Planes, trains, heights…you name it, Nina was afraid of it and led a sheltered life ruled by irrational fears and phobias.

When she moves to Brooklyn for nursing school, that life is turned upside down, as she develops an intense but unwanted attraction to her gorgeous roommate, who’s pierced, tattooed and just happens to be the smartest person she’s ever met.

Behind Jake Green’s rough exterior and devilish smile, lies a heart of gold. He makes it his mission to change Nina’s outlook on life. When he agrees to tutor her, they forge a bet and the stakes are high as Jake forces Nina to face her demons. He just wasn’t expecting to fall hard for her in the process.

What Nina doesn’t realize, is that Jake has been living his own private hell. Once he drops a bombshell, will their love survive it?


  • Chemistry Overload

    By Jenzny
    I completely understand all of the hype I've seen about Jake. I don't know what took me so long to read this book to be honest. I had some audible credits that had stacked up and so I started the Gemini series by Penelope Ward. Once I started this story, I had to hear more. Nina moves to NYC to go to school and struggles with Math. Her mysterious roommates offers to help her out by tutoring her. Nina also has some fears and they make a side bet that if she doesn't pass her tests, that she will have to face them. After some time, they develop a friendship along with a strong attraction to each other. They have some things in their past that get in the way. That's about all I can say without giving too much away. But, let me tell you... I could feel the chemistry between these too. And I love that the story doesn't end in the typical way, but addresses some struggles that couples face. It's not always just the HEA. Definitely enjoyed this one and adored Jake's poems!

    I can't believe I waited so long to read this book. Especially when I can relate to Nina in almost every way. She stole my heart. She had my emotions flying high. I felt every fear she has. I adore her. Jake is Smart charismatic and Hot, he's got a big big heart. He's selfless. But he had a secret and it was killing me to find out what? And oh my it's a doozy. The story flowed perfectly I loved everything about it .

    Awesome story, I was unable to stop reading! Loved the story, there were crying times and lots of laughter! It was lovely how Jake wanted to help Nina overcome her fears! Jake is awesome how he would not give up on Ivy either!
  • Good read

    The story was interesting and a good read. I enjoyed her other books a lot more . I enjoyed the beginning but towards the end of the middle and end I was losing interest. Not sure if Nina became annoying and Jake started to act so weak. I really wish the ending would have stopped him from seeing Ivy. It is just so depressing and I really don't blame Nina for acting the way she did at times.

  • I loved this to the moon!

    Jake and Nina are some of the most wonderful characters I have ever read. I was so taken in by their story that I couldn't put it down. This is my first Penelope Ward book and won't be the last, since now I see what MY SKYLAR is going to be about. Gah! Skylar! That kid nearly stole the show! Loved her, loved Jake, loved Nina.
  • Not typical

    By Pinkunicorndazzler
    Was hoping it would be like Hollywood dirt it wasn't but it did not disappoint... Good love story and it did not feel like I was reading just another romance book ....
  • Great Read

    I really enjoyed the pace of this book. We meet a young woman who has moved in with three other people in an apartment to go to school. Over the years she has developed fears of being in enclosed spaces. Jake is brilliant and one of her roommates. He makes a deal with Nina and so it begins. This story also introduces us to several other people and they all fit so well into the story. We have a mystery, friendship, tension, loss, and love all rolled into the one story. I really enjoy the devotion and commitment that this author puts into her male characters. The books that I have read by her all have men that are devoted to the ones they love and committed to them with everything that they are.

    Jake undone was a roller coaster of drama. From the moment I started reading it I couldn't put it down. I received a copy from the romance read club of the month and was blown away by Jake and Nina's story. Over all I'd give this a 5 star rating and can not wait to read Mitch and Skylar's story.
