Jax Knight was something else. He was a complete gentleman, and compose in public, but a complete alpha who definitely totally knows what he wants, and knows how to get it inside the bedroom.
He no longer had his privacy, he has been hounded, and harassed by media. He had been living a lie, and he hated it. After the scandal erupted on his father, he was forced to move to New York to shove off paparazzi that had been tailing him.
It was supposed to be for business, what he didn’t expect was Lily St. Claire.
She’s the daughter of the legendary fighter, “The Saint”, and the owner of a chain of MMA gyms. I was looking forward for a very powerful woman in suit. But I was in for a big surprise. She wasn’t what I expected to be – our Lily is clumsy (I love their first meeting), and I think she’s pretty much gullible because of her very big and generous heart. I wonder how she can run the business when she’s surrounded by ruthless men. So yes, she was not my favorite heroine in this series. I hated the fact Caden was constantly emotional blackmailing her, and she didn’t have the courage to really say NO. She had ended it months ago, and still he’d act as if they’re together because she couldn’t put him on his place. It was frustrating.
I was glad that Jax came. He was exactly what she needed. He was strong, he was confident, he was well-mannered, well-educated and was oozing with appeal. He was different from the rest of the men she knew. He was her knight. But she was careful not to mix business with pleasure, because the last time she crossed that line, she got burnt.
No matter how Jax wanted her, he tried to respect her decision – oh he teased. Sometimes, they played over the edge of the cliff. They tried to push it aside. But when the tension became thick, and the attraction became too powerful to ignore – they finally gave in and it was soooooo worth the wait!
But of course, no one can just live happily-ever-after, could they? Just as when everything was falling into their pieces: the ex comes in and so did Jax’s father. Both of them were SOB that I’d wanted to crush from the first time I met them. Nevertheless, if they didn’t do what they did, it would have not paved way for Jax and Vince to meet. Not to mention, Jax getting into the ring. So yes, there’s that rainbow amidst the storm.
I didn’t like Lily at first, but she’ll grow on you. She really does have a big heart, but I would have loved it more if she were a stronger heroine. As for Jax, I WANT HIM FOR MYSELF. He’s perfect for Lily and exactly what she needed. Their road to happy ending was quite a ride, but I was glad she had Reed and Joe with her, and Jax has Vince.
One of my favorite scenes in this novel is when Lily was talking about her memories of her father. It was such a touching tale that almost made me tear-up. Her father might have been lethal on the ring, but he was a great father who brought her up on his own.
I had looked forward for Jax story, and Vi Keeland made sure the wait was really worth it. You will fall in love with Jax – every inch of him. I love how the story progressed, the twists, the turns, the surprises, the steamy scenes, and the romance. But what I love most is the epilogue, because if the single Jax didn’t make you swoon, I’m sure the married Jax will!
Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work. She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!
