Elena’s Book Crushes: Jack McKenna from Absolution by Amanda Dick

You know how much I love my book boyfriends, right? 😉 Today I’m going to talk a new favorite of mine: Jack McKenna from Absolution by Amanda Dick.

My Jack McKenna: Chris Evans




Chris Evans


Why I love Jack:

Jack is a wonderful male character, one you fall in love with immediately. He’s a very sweet soul, but he carries incredible guilt inside of him. He made some bad decisions, but they were made out of love. He acknowledges his mistake, and he goes back to Ally hell-bent on conquering her again and showing her that he’s never stopped loving her. I love his devotion, his persistence, and how he wants to stay with Ally at all costs. To his eyes, she’s always the same Ally she was before, no matter how much things have changed…Jack conquered my heart, and he’s now on the list of my Favorite Book Boyfriends.

Some beautiful Jack quotes:

“The only thing we have control over is the present and the future. The past is gone, over. We have to move forward — we don’t have a choice.”

“I don’t deserve to ask for another chance, so I’m not. Just know that I’m going to try and make it up to you somehow, even if it takes the rest of my life. I’m not asking you for anything except to let me try. That’s it, that’s all.”

“I’ve missed being this close to you, holding you like this. You’re so beautiful.”
