Mavis always assumed that she would be in a hospital with the good drugs when her time came. Not in the middle of the road, with no one around but the damn town mechanic that hated her.
But there she was, having a rock star’s baby, with no one to rely on but the one that let it be known around every turn that she was a horrible person.
From the time that she met Murphy and became best friends with him at the age of eight, she knew he was destined for greatness.
But then her grandmother fired Murphy’s mom, forcing them to live on the streets, and making Murphy to realize that maybe they weren’t best friends after all.
Murphy loved Mavis.
At least, he had when he was younger, before she betrayed him.
From that moment forward, Murphy goes out of his way to stay the hell away from her, and always makes sure to never get too close. Even though everything inside of him screams to make contact.
When he moves back to town after being gone for five years, he tries his best to stay away.
But there she is at his CrossFit gym. Then having a baby on the side of the road. Oh, and breaking him a little more with each step she takes away.
Eventually, they find their way back to each other. The only problem is, by the time that Mavis makes her way back into his heart, it breaks. And not in a rhetorical way. In the ‘he only has days to live’ kind of way.
Listen, this is NOT what I signed up for!! The tears!!!! Jerk It made me cry SO HARD!
Jerk It is a second chance, small town, single mom story that seems so innocent on its face. Then BAM! It smacks you with the heartbreaking stuff. Holy moly does it hit you hard. The story’s timeline crosses book 1, No Rep, so you get sort of a before, during, and after that story. Mavis and Vlad were favorites of mine before, so I was psyched for this book.
There were times in Jerk It where I considered stopping. It was just so heartbreaking I wasn’t sure I could keep going. LLV’s books are go to for me, but I was starting to question it. Jerk It was a tough read, to be honest. But, there is still some of the humor and sarcasm that I have always enjoyed in LLV’s books. Just have lots of tissues ready. Maybe a few boxes.
