Fresh out of college and recently dumped by his long-time girlfriend, shy and bookish Jefferson Blythe is touring Europe using an inherited vintage copy of Esquire Magazine’s Europe in Style.
Jefferson Blythe, Esquire is about old maps, new adventures, getting lost, getting found, getting drunk, and being mistaken for an international criminal. In other words, normal summer vacation when you’re in your twenties.
Expected Publication Date: November 16th 2015

So Jefferson Blythe, such an easy read really. And truly it is very much a JL Book.
Did I view it as a NA contemporary? No I didn’t really.
It was definitely not heavy on the romance.
It reminded me a bit of Jake & Adrien…..
Or Adrien as a young man.
I find JL’s writing to be so poetic. It flows so well, and makes you feel so many things all at once. To me it is heart wrenching, her words, which is why I find I love to read her. I can re read her books and fall in love over and over again and each re read I learn more or I see things differently because I read it in a different mood.
“I kissed him with all the skill and experience I had, and though the shape of his mouth was different and the line of his jaw was harder and the taste of his tongue was most definitely male, it simply made it easier, sweeter, more right.”
I will have to re read Jefferson at some point and see if I view it differently than I did the 1st time around.
The mystery wasn’t JL’s best and it was funny how silly the villain’s were.
And then there was George. He was tough nut to crack, I couldn’t get a read on him and I wanted him to wake the hell up and see what was in front of him.
I hope that we can get a short or something for Jefferson and George so we see a glimpse into the future, I would like a glimpse. Something? Anything?
All in all I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
