According to Book Viral, "Gray certainly knows how to spin a saga, more importantly she knows how to pitch the tone. The plots are compelling, the characters superb and the writing excellent. It's the kind of alchemy that, on the rare occasions it comes together is hard to replicate." Jacky writes edgy, character-driven tales packed with fun, drama and snarky wit, but above all, romance.

Bryant Rockwell Series

Described as a pitch-perfect blend of drama and romance for fans of Ten Things I Hate About You and Glee, these young adult stories are snappy, eclectic and edgy. An enjoyable read which will appeal to anyone with a sense of humour and an ear for the ironic. 

Dealing with issues of self-image and peer abuse, this well-written, intriguing series shares many elements with Thirteen Reasons Why as the complex characters grapple with issues such as sexuality, bullying and misread signals. It gives a convincing depiction of mercurial teenage relationships and that dreadful sense of hope and fear combined around transforming friendships into relationships when you don't quite dare take the plunge in case your feelings aren't reciprocated.

Kat's just a girl who can't say no. Taking on the Teen Factor competition nearly breaks her, but there's way more going on than just vote fixing.
Kat's strict upbringing means she can't even swear in the privacy of her own head. How the heck is she supposed to front her Irish boyfriend's rock band? Let alone wear the skimpy outfit the sleazy Teen Factor organiser demands. But the guy has so much worse in store for the unwitting contestants.

I loved the wit and humour in this story, but it also melted my heart. So many hilarious lines, and I was laughing so much at one line I totally spit my coffee. I found the idea Kat hated being so "Mary-Sue" hilarious.
