Let me say this first, I completely adore the cover. It perfectly depicted what the story is all about.
“This wasn’t happening. It could not be happening. Not to me. Not to us. Not here. Not now. Not ever.”
So in the end of He’s So Not Worth It, we found out that good ol’ Jake is going to be a daddy. Chloe’s pregnant and according to her he’s the dad. It was really wrong timing because Jake and Allie just went back together, starting fresh. But how can they start if Jake has now a responsibility? A huge responsibility.
I don’t know whether I’m impressed with Allie or what. She decided to support Jake in this predicament. She’s there even though he doesn’t have much time for her. She is still with him even though his priority is Chloe. And she’s still there for him even though he’s taking her for granted. Wow, Allie, girls like you deserve a medal.
I don’t like Jake at the beginning but definitely I like him less here. I do understand his situation. But his actions really a test of patience and understanding. If I were Allie I would have let him go. It’s just too much especially that they’re starting their relationship again. But at the same time I kinda admire him because he accepted the responsibility. Even though he was so scared. That he doesn’t know what to do. But still, he accepted it **spoiler** but then when he found out that he wasn’t the father as we all conclude (I don’t know why I putting a warning, it’s a public knowledge) the way he treated Chloe is just plain harsh. Once again, I understand his reaction. After all, he invested a lot of things for the baby: his emotions, his time. He almost sacrificed his future for her and the baby. Then he will find out that it’s not his. Of course things will hit the fan. But for me it still doesn’t justify his actions. Yes, it is really selfish of Chloe to put Jake on that situation but he doesn’t have to be an a-hole about it. It kinda loses my respect for him. And I completely agree with Will, I don’t understand why he is mad at him. He doesn’t know about it. He wasn’t the one who put him on that situation. I don’t think he deserves the hostility. **spoiler end**
At the end, I would have preferred if they didn’t end up together. Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you. I don’t want them to end up together. Jake, even if there’s repenting happened in the book. It just, I find him, I dunno…still wrong for her? He probably learned a thing or two with happened to him. He is just…well to borrow the title of the second book; he’s so not worth it. The drama, the neglect, not really worth it.
Books like these are my guilty pleasure. It’s frustratingly entertaining. Even though I eyerolled a lot I still find it all hilarious. And although for me, the story kinda fizzled out when it reached the third book, it was still a nice read and I sort of liked the happy feel, the all’s-well-that-ends-well ending of this trilogy.
