From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ashley Jade comes a gritty, off-limits romance about mistakes, choices, and love conquering all.

He was the mysterious dark knight always swooping in to save me when I needed it most.

I was the troubled girl with scars and a bleeding heart.

He was the gifted guitarist destined for big things.

I was the small-town girl battling her demons.

He was my earth….always keeping me grounded.

And I was his sky…always just out of his reach.

Our love was everything I wished for.

Until I destroyed it.

I never thought I’d see Memphis Payne again after I broke his heart, but the stars had other plans.

Because here he is…needing me to clean up his mess this time.

Only problem is…

Doing so will break both our hearts.

They say only the strongest love can survive an apocalypse.

That if two people are meant to be, they’ll find their way back to each other.

I hope they’re right.

โœ๐Ÿป Professor Romance’s 5 โญ๏ธ Review: Ashley Jade’s The Choice โœ๐Ÿป

Overall Grade: โญ๏ธ โญ๏ธ โญ๏ธ โญ๏ธ โญ๏ธ

Tropes: childhood friends; love triangle; impossible love; instalove; star-crossed lovers; rock star; scars; blackmail

โ€œIt wonโ€™t be cloudy forever, Memphis. Eventually weโ€™ll see the stars.โ€

Every writer leaves a piece of themselves in their stories. Even if the story is nowhere close to their experience, an author leaves something behind. What happens, though, when a writer bleeds all over their story, their passion for their characters imprinted indelibly on the page? Emotional, explosive, engaging stories. Iโ€™ve been trying to determine why I adore Ashley Jadeโ€™s romances. To be fair, Iโ€™m older than her average reader and her charactersโ€™ ages. Their young adult struggles are well in my past. But, after reading The Choice, I recognize I can feel her within her stories. There are very few authors Iโ€™ve read (someone like Kennedy Ryan comes to mind) where I feel them written all over the pages of their books in an urgent, impassioned way. And I believe this is why I adore Ashley Jadeโ€™s stories. When I enter them, I will be expected to feel feelings and be uncomfortable in doing so. Ashley Jade compels her readers into a rabid fandom, and itโ€™s the ardor of her storytelling that lights this fire. There is no mistake: Ashley Jade cares deeply for her characters and the ideas that infuse her stories. The Choice? Itโ€™s no different. 

You wonโ€™t find story details in this review. To do so would be to ruin this story. Instead, Iโ€™ll offer my feelings on reading The Choice.

For one, TikTok became my friend while reading this book. I needed small breaks because the โ€œchoicesโ€ of the characters will overwhelm you. At least, it did for me. Hereโ€™s the thing, though. They make their choices informed by their individual traumas. And all of her main characters have endured much. Ashley Jade warns her readers at the beginning of The Choice to avoid judging her characters, one in particular. And thatโ€™s an apt warning because hurt people make decisions informed by their past and pain. What Jade does well in this story is show the power of oneโ€™s trauma to inform the present. Even more, she shows the spectrum of peopleโ€™s reactions to a trauma-filled past. And itโ€™s so darn REAL. For me, this is the most impactful part of The Choice, and itโ€™s the reason that readers should avoid making judgments until the conclusion of this bookโ€ฆand maybe even this duet.

Two, my heart broke for Skylar, Memphis, and Josh. Their lives are wrought at the hands of others. This changes them forever. However, as they move forward, putting their pain behind them, they encounter people who want more for them. Mrs. Landrum and Archie and Valerie attempt to provide more for these three. Infusing these characters into the story, Jade ameliorates the drama of her characters; she provides respite from the intensity of the story. Archie, for one, becomes beloved in The Choice as he shows a zeal for food and becomes the wizened guide for stubborn teens, a difficult task.

Thirdly, The Choice titillates as much as it delivers drama. Ashley Jade writes eroticism into her stories that always makes you stop for a moment and think, โ€œdid I just read that?โ€ And she makes no apology for it. There is $ex all over this story, but donโ€™t miss it. Jade uses its administration to underscore the emotional connections of her characters. Itโ€™s also crafted to express the tether of the past to the present, showcasing the destructive power of abuse on oneโ€™s understanding of $ex. It becomes a conduit of control and a mechanism of healing in The Choice.

Ashley Jadeโ€™s book will steal your breath and a piece of your soul. The Choice is not for the faint of heart, but I wouldnโ€™t miss this book. To do so would be to miss out on the experience of reading passion infused on every page. In a book world such as romance, where some authors produce a book a month oftentimes leaving out the emotion necessary for a romantic story, Ashley Jade offers a place in her stories to feel your feelings because sheโ€™s already left herโ€™s on the page.

In love and romance,

Professor A
