    I read A lot I know, not really a huge revelation but I have a point, I swear And I ve met a lot of heroes, but never have I ever met a hero as perfect as Jack I mean, whenever there s a broken heroine there s a hero that promises they ll be there, they ll never give up on her, etc but in almost every story, the hero get s frustrated, or overwhelmed, or tired of being the heroine s punching bag, and they walk away But Jack That man stood by Ari, fought for Ari, and not once did I read A lot I know, not really a huge revelation but I have a point, I swear And I ve met a lot of heroes, but never have I ever met a hero as perfect as Jack I mean, whenever there s a broken heroine there s a hero that promises they ll be there, they ll never give up on her, etc but in almost every story, the hero get s frustrated, or overwhelmed, or tired of being the heroine s punching bag, and they walk away But Jack That man stood by Ari, fought for Ari, and not once did he give up on her Seriously, he takes swoonworthy to a whole new level Okay, now that I ve got that off my chest, let s get to the story, shall we Ari has spent the past three years living in fear of her abusive boyfriend and the threats that he holds over her and her family but when she wakes up in the hospital and realizes that he isn t there, she finally gets away She moves to the town where her brother, Jake, lives, gets a job and her own apartment, and is finally starting to get her life under control Until the boyfriend, Roger, shows up to take back what s his.You can tell from the beginning that Ricochet is going to keep you on the edge of your seat and I was not disappointed In fact, it was so muchthan I was expecting, to be completely honest Watching Ari learn to defend herself, watching her actually stand up to Roger when the time comes, and watching her heal with the help of Jack, Jake, and their friends It was beautiful, really.But what really adds to the beauty of it is the love story between Jack and Ari Yes, I know I already said how perfect Jack is, but when Jack opens up to Ari about his feelings Sigh Jack and Ari have loved each other since they were kids but since Jack is so much older than Ari by about 5 years was my guess, though no actual ages were mentioned he was waiting until she was 18 to make his move Unfortunately some stuff went down that forced him and his family to move away on her 18th birthday which resulted in Ari hating Jack for the past 6 years.Because of everything Ari has been through the romance is slow building but it was totally worth the wait It was great to see Ari move past the hate that she felt toward Jack for all those years and to be able to watch them fall in love all over again as adults And, of course, the sexual tension definitely made the sexy times that much hotter.There were definitely a few times where I found myself getting nervous about how everything would play out and OMG The courthouse scene I was full on ugly crying But luckily, everything worked out in the end and I absolutely cannot wait for Jake s book to see how he s coping with everything.Seriously, I could go on and on about how great Ricochet is but I think I ve rambled long enough So just read this book so you can experience the awesomeness for yourself ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review
