My name is Oliver Arsen, but my mates call me Ollie.

I live hard and love harder, and it’s love that usually gets me in the most trouble.

According to the greater population, I’m the ultimate jerk.

My affection tends to be short-lived—a quality I’ve been assured multiple times by the fairer sex isn’t becoming—and the leaving part of loving and leaving has always come natural.

At least, it used to.

Until her.

Luciana Wright.

She’s an American bombshell and my sister’s best friend—a woman so wrong for

me, it’s written in the waves.

And she’s the reason we’re all here.

The reason I have to go back to explain how it all went wrong.

To the day the jerk started falling.

My Review

There are two sides to every story, so while Lucky gave her side of things in The Day I Stopped Falling For Jerks, allowing her podcast listeners and Max Monroe’s readers her perspective on all things jerk, including the biggest jerk of all time – Ollie Arsen – there are still more insights to be given…truths to be revealed…lies to be amended, and the only person who can offer that required information and hopefully by him offering up his heart and his soul to the public but more specifically to his Little Fire, he’ll get a second chance to do things right, and this time, not end up breaking Lucky’s heart as well as his own.

Book 2 is Ollie’s opportunity to ‘reset the truth’…to dig himself out of the hole he made for himself and acknowledge his extreme ineptness when it comes to relationships and feelings, and throughout the days and hours of his podcasts, the public receives a candid and honest Ollie – one who takes us back to when everything between him and Lucky started, providing another view to what we already know and giving us an opportunity to see the full picture of how they began and how and where everything between them imploded. Ollie takes us through the steps he took and the choices he made to get the girl, and while some of it highlights his less than stellar decisions and actions, it’s his honesty that keeps us rooting for him, hoping that Lucky takes the time to listen to his heartfelt words and figures out a way to reopen her heart to the man she loves.

Ollie’s perspective is candid, hilarious, and beyond entertaining. I love that he laughs at himself and has enough shame to feel bad about the lies he told and devious things he did in order to keep Lucky to himself even before he had her. Max Monroe’s crafts Ollie’s point of view using a conversational and easy-going tone, which makes it seem like we’re talking to one of our friends and listening to him unload the details of his mess up and what he plans to do to fix it, if that’s even possible.

After Ollie finally catches his listeners and readers up on all that has transpired to get him and Lucky where they are right now – further apart then they’ve ever been – there’s still more story to tell, which means that we need both his and Lucky’s viewpoint and the whirlwind of affairs that transpires to reach the ending of their tale is quite a production, but I wouldn’t expect anything less based on all that they have already endured in front of quite the captivated audience.

The Jerk Duet is a creative, humorous, and honest set of books, and I more than enjoyed both of them because of their writing, their character development, and their presentation method. And, there’s definitely a few supporting characters whose stories would be just as intriguing and entertaining as Lucky and Ollie’s story was.

Excerpt

Podcast Series: The Day the Jerk Started Falling with Oliver Arsen

Dating is easy, mates. The women are plentiful, the opportunities abundant, and the fun endless.

I’ve taken a woman night surfing—only to end up using the board and the motion of the water for another purpose—jetted over to New Zealand for a two-day holiday with another, and given more than one a fair tour of my bedroom.

No effort overspent, I enjoyed every moment of it.

I live hard and love harder, but it’s the second one that usually gets me in the most trouble. My affection tends to be short-lived—a quality I’ve been assured multiple times by the fairer sex isn’t becoming.

Basically, according to the greater population, I’m the ultimate jerk.

And if you grouped the lot of my past conquests together and set me ablaze, not one of them would piss on me to save my life.

Taking the next step, having a long-term relationship, has never been my forte.

Commitment is hard. The thought of a one-woman wank for the rest of my life has barely ever been conceivable, let alone possible, and I have to blame that for how badly it all went.

When I look back at my behavior, there has to be a reason.

A reason, friends, that when it came to Luciana Wright, I fucked it all up.

I’ve been cursed out, stomped on, slapped. Had my balls volleyed, spat on, and punched. And even, on one occasion, nearly run over by a car with a madwoman behind the wheel.

But I’ve never been through the brutal torture of love.

Until Lucky.

She’s an American bombshell and my sister’s best friend—a woman so wrong for

me, it should be written in the waves.

And she’s the reason we’re all here.

The exact reason why I strong-armed the lovely, albeit slightly hard-ass, editor of this fantastic website to let an Aussie bloke like me prattle on about his love woes.

[chuckles]

Vanessa, if you’re listening, I’m certain your balls are bigger than just about every man out there. And trust me, that is a compliment.

[chuckles again]

Also, thank you for your hospitality via podcast permission. It is much appreciated.

And you, dear listeners, you should know that for the next God only knows how many episodes of this podcast series, I’m going to spend my time talking directly to Lucky. If you’re not her, but you’d like to keep listening, I urge you to help me. Help me by hearing me out. Help me by relating to my story. Help me plead my case. And to really prepare yourself to get the whole tale from both sides, listen to her podcast first.

[distinct pause]

I had you in my grasp, Lucky, but now it’s fallen apart.

And in order to explain how it happened—to explain myself—I feel like I have to go back to the day it all began.

To the day the jerk started falling.
