Reviews Shades of Pink

  • Jennifer Kyle
    I would highly recommend purchasing this book because it’s a great cause and secondly, it’s Jack of course! Whether your Team Ramsey, John or Jack this story is not to be missed. I absolutely loved Jack’s pov, he struggles with his long distance, comfortable relationship, with Danielle. P.S. He sure can’t handle water works. ”Danielle thought it was cute and funny, and Jack thought it sounded like a slow painful death.” Lexi more than...

    I used to be a die hard Ramsey girl... nothing could make me change. Then after taking a step back, relooking and reevaluating things, I jumped back to the Jack/dark side!!! After reading his POV from when they first met, I am firmly a member of the Jack Pack. He is messed up, scared of real love and committment so he settles to stay safe. He has always settled for the safe girl that doesn't really make him FEEL. But with Lexi, he knows from the ...

    I HAVE NO CLUE WHY THIS POV CONVERTED SOME TO TEAM JACK Jack's POV shows us what we all already know: Jack is spineless. He couldn't even break it off with his girlfriend - because she gave him a blow job, had lots of sex with her and employed "tears" at that moment. With Lexi, Jack is worse - he is a spineless bastard. FOR THE LIFE OF ME, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE THINK LEXI AND JACK ARE SOULMATES. I'm not trying to rile up something or peo...

    I only read two stories in this Anthology: Olivia by Madeline Sheehan - 4 stars:I really enjoyed this and would love a full length story. It was a bit sad but I loved how it ended. Especially the impact of the name. And I want to know more about this drummer!Avoiding Commitment (Jack's POV) by K.A. Linde - 4 stars:I cannot wait for the last book so I was happy to have this in the meantime. It was great reading about the affect Lexi had on Jack ev...

    FIVE FABULOUS JACK STARS!!!!!! ❤❤❤❤ Oh my god, Kyla Linde, did not disappoint with this POV from Jack.It takes place when Jack and Lexi first meet in college.I had butterflies in my stomach while reading it.These two were meant to be together and this is the Jack I fell in love with.This is the guy who is Swoonworthy to the millionth degree!!!He took one last look at the girl seated at the table across from him. When he stared at her, he ...

    I was afraid to read this story written from Jack's POV. I was completely content in my anger at the Jackass. Like everyone else I was routing for Jack until the end of Avoiding Commitment. See he kept letting me down and I was beginning to like Ramsey a little more. In the last chapter I had decided I didn't want Lexi with either. Bekah had me convinced both were snakes. Then came Avoiding Responsibility and Ramsey won my heart again. By the las...

    So I know it's like breaking the girl code, but I just can't let myself let go of hope for a Lexi & Jack HEA. Especially after seeing their early days from his point of view. Jack sees her, there is something about her that just draws him in. But he knows it's wrong, but even a few seconds with her can't be wasted. And seeing just how much he fights the idea of something feeling real and strong - makes me love him even more.He can't commit, but t...
  • Gwen ~the Book Diva
    JACK! I HATE YOU SO MUCH and I LOVE YOU SO HARD! Gah!! Why? Why did I read this!!! I thought I had gotten over him and accepted that there was no hope for him! What did I call him... "a weaselly little douche" but NOOOO, I had to go and open up a healing wound! We were reminded of Coffee Shop Jack...I mean COFFEE SHOP JACK for crying out loud!! Ugh, I hate him for what he's done but I am always hoping for his redemption. I am not Team Ramsey but...
  • .chel.
    Ughhhhhh!!!!!Seriously? Jack's POV makes me so mad. Obviously, he really cares for Lexi but come on, we all know who he ends up choosing in the end. It's been awhile since I've read Avoiding Commitment and I thought I've moved on, apparently not.Merged review:Although I liked some stories more than others. It was all for a good cause.
  • Lariza
    Oh Jack, Jack, Jack you are trying to take me to the dark side!!! But alas, as tempting as that is I am still 100% Team Ramsey and rooting for his and Lexi’s HEA!!! Reading Jack’s POV was enlightening, all those times while reading AC where I was thinking “Jack what is wrong with you??" are answered. Jack is a lost soul, letting his fears get in the way of possible true love and taking the easy road. Oh Jacky boy you are hopeless, but I sti...
  • Rosalind Seese
    God I love Jack.....SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCHHHHHH! I have always been Team Jack from day one, I just got him. Even without this POV I felt like I understood MOST of his actions. There was only one scene in the previous two book that totally threw me for a loop (I don't even know what to say about that scene) but THIS POV just proves that my faith in him was correct. I love how K.A. Linde added the whole if I lost control I would throw her up against a ...

    This review is based on an ARC copy. Allowances have been made for errors in the draft that should be corrected in the final anthology. Of course I'm giving it a 5- this is a collection of donated stories for a breast cancer awareness gift with donation thru Kallysten's blog via the stayclassy (dot) org link. The stories range from sweet to kinky, contemporary to sci-fi, and established series characters to stand alone written-for-this-anthology ...

    4.5 STARS.........TEAM JACK.............THAT IS ALL! ❤❤ <|b>
  • Kristin L.
    This is an amazing collaboration of stories! Author Kallysten has put together 33 authors, each with very different takes on the color pink, and put it together in an effort to raise money for breast cancer research. I have so enjoyed reading through all of the different stories! There is truly something for everyone! A few of my favorite authors have such stories as Laura Hunsaker's "Highland Eclipse", a time-traveling journey to Scotland. Or T....

    After searching high and low for this and needing to see things from Jack's POV I was sadly disappointed :(I was expecting it to be so different :( But at least it provided some insight although I would have loved it to be a different scene. But I guess K. A. Linde did this to torture her readers even more hahahahaha!
  • Kelli Spear
    *sigh*I loved this... it reminded me of the early days when I loved Jack and only wanted him and Lexi together. It was nice to get into his head. We obviously had no idea what he was thinking. I at least was a bit at peace to know he truly felt something for her at one point. HOWEVER, this does NOT mean I want him to end up with Lexi. Regardless of how sweet he comes across here, his future actions prove what a douche he is. I just can't let go o...
  • Cristin
    3.5 It is no secret that I am a huge fan of the Avoiding is also no secret that I'm a Team Ramsey girl....That being said, I do understand Jack and all of his Jackassness (yes, you heard right)......but regardless of how he truly feels about Lexi, his actions just don't back those feelings up. I enjoyed reading this b/c hey it's one of my fav series, but I was really longing for some insight into some of Jack's more " Jackassery" mom...
  • Pam
    I bought Shades of Pink just so I could get Jack's POV. I loved it. I am still not a fan of Jack, but I would love to read more from his POV. Merged review:Besides the fact that proceeds from this book go towards breast cancer research, the main reason I purchased this was for the K.A. Linde story, and it was well worth it. 5 stars to Jack's POV. I want more.3 stars to Olivia. That was, um, interesting.3 stars to One More Bloom.4 stars to Love an...
  • Vivian Dominguez
    Only got one thing to say....TEAM JACK!!!! 4everrrrrr!!!Sry Ramsey lovers...I'm a sucker for bad boys cuz they always make u work for it...Their true feelings are like an exotic treasure u need to dig much more fulfilling in the end!!!...Can't wait to dig more in ;-)
  • Jennifer☠Pher☠
    I don't know what I think. I think that way too much has happened for that little bit inside his head made any difference. Don't get me wrong, I am 100% Team Jack but, I need more. I have never doubted his feelings, he is just freaking stupid. This kinda just reinforced it. Stupid, stupid Jack. If he doesn’t get redeemed in the next book I just don’t know what I will do. Team Jack.
  • Lisa
    I don't know how Jack went from this to total tool.
  • Miep at The Review Loft
    This book was the perfect insight into Jack's head when he first met Lexi. A guys POV is very hard to do and I can say that K.A Linde did a perfect job allowing us to see Lexi through his eyes when they first met. This book is not about being a Jack, Ramsey or Mystery Man fan and I doubt anyone who is team Ramsey or Mystery Man will jump ship to team Jack from this short story. What it will do is give you insight into why Jack is Jack. As a MAJOR...
  • Jessica's Book Review
    It was nice to get into Jack's head but I would have liked to have gotten into his head later in life, like when Jack is dating Bekah and Lexi re-enters his life.This is from the scene of meeting Lexi to dating her while in college and only for a brief time. This is really short. I am Team Jack but this did not do him any justice because it did not make him look good.... with that said. It was a treat to read and the money went to a good cause.St...
  • Eva Mack
    While I enjoyed reading things from Jack's perspective... this changed nothing about my feelings for him. IMO, he is still a weak, selfish tool and Lexi can do better. Though she was evil incarnate, Bekah was right, all Lexi could ever be to Jack is the other woman. He's proven this over and over... I am so confused as to why so many women are team Jack. I'm like, did you READ the story??? Sheesh!
