Yes. Hot Guy. Yes. Read this.~ 2013 update. The above line was my original review from way back in 2010. Originally, I think there was also a "buh" in there, but I took it out. Go easy on me. I was new to reading again, so I hadn't read a ton of funny/cocky guys yet. Although, I have to say that Jace handles his cockiness with some great wit and flair, which makes him stand out from the other 10,000 run-of-the-mill arrogant guys in books.I understand why some people won't read this author for controversial past behavior. My thoughts are mixed. It's easier for me to have stronger opinions about avoiding books when I've been there from the start for the controversy. I fell in love with the series long before finding anything out, so it's sort of a weird line to walk, still wanting to read the books, but feeling sort of weird for doing so.
