Blog Tour ~ The Truth About Jack by Jody Gehrman - Promo Post



The Truth About Jack
Release Date: 04/14/15
Entangled Crush

Summary from Goodreads:

Dakota McCloud has just been accepted into a prestigious art school. Soon she'll leave behind the artists' colony where she grew up―hippie dad, tofu since birth, yurt―and join her boyfriend and best friend on the East Coast. It was the plan…until Dakota finds out her boyfriend and best friend hooked up behind her back.

Hurt and viciously betrayed, Dakota pours out her heart on a piece of paper, places it in a bottle, and hurls it into the ocean. But it doesn't quite go where she expects…

Jack Sauvage finds the bottle washed up on the shore and responds to Dakota's letter. Except what if his straight-laced life doesn’t jive with the free-spirited girl he’s only seen from afar? As Jack creates a persona he believes she’ll love, they slowly fall for each other with each new letter. Now Jack is trying to find a way to make this delicate, on-paper romance happen in real life…without revealing his deception.

Two Truths and One Lie About Jack

Can you tell which is which?

1. Jack’s mother is extremely overprotective. Jack’s uncle died in a car accident a couple decades ago, and ever since his mom’s been paranoid about anyone she loves hitting the road. As a result, Jack’s the only person in his hometown with a full time chauffeur. Well, Attila used to be a part-time tutor, part-time chauffeur, before Jack got into Julliard. Now that the academic pressures’ off, he doesn’t need a tutor, so voila! Attila became his full time driver. It’s both a luxury and a source of extreme embarrassment, according to Jack.

2. Jack’s got a burning desire to be a winemaker, just like his father. He stays up all night in the wine cellars of his family vineyard trying to blend the perfect merlot. His love of wine makes him dangerously boring at parties. If someone so much as cracks open a wine cooler, Jack insists on analyzing its bouquet.

3. Sometimes Jack can lose himself entirely in his music. He delves so deeply into the notes that he can feel each chord vibrating inside his chest, like he’s not just playing music--he is the music. He’s the moody smokiness of Rachmaninoff and the soft pastels of Chopin. This is what he lives for, this total surrender to the moment, when he’s so lost in the notes he forgets his own name.
