Jax Wheeler has been fighting his own demons for as long as he can remember. One of those demons is from his past, a brother who wants nothing more to see Jax suffer. Working closely with the Cincinnati Branch of the VC Warriors Jax never thought he would find someone who could help him ease his pain, but he was wrong.
Having a past of her own, Caroline Fitzpatrick has survived being put into a trance by a madman who wanted to control her sister, a abusive relationship, communicating with the dead, but nothing has prepared her for Jax Wheeler. From the moment she saw him the attraction was immediate, but the attraction was not mutual or was it?
The more Jax tries to stay away from Caroline, the more he finds himself at her door, in her life. All he knows is that every minute he spends with the beautiful school teacher, the more danger he puts her in. His brother’s vengeance of wanting him to suffer has put Caroline in the line of fire and only Jax can protect her.
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
OH MAN!! Jax Wheeler!! He is no Jared mind you but the man is pretty amazing.
Jax and Caroline had been totally dancing around each other the last book. SO I was finally glad to see their story be told. Jax, of course is an island and doesn’t need anyone…typical Warrior. Caroline’s the sweet school teacher who has a crazy outta control nurturing side. That same nurturing side that makes Jax Wheelers walls crumble because no one has ever taken care of HIM. No one had ever bandaged a cut or took the time to make sure he is ok but damn it if this human isn’t making it tough to stay away from her.
Caroline and Jax are at this crazy stand still in their “relationship” and boy did I love Sloane stepping up to the plate to make Jax put up or shut up for Caroline…way to go Boss Man…also looking forward to you getting your butt handed to you in the next book but back to Jax and Caroline.
Mika is after Caroline for the intense purpose of causing Jax pain. When Jax tells Caroline the whole sorted details of the family history, sad doesn’t even begin to tell you how I felt. Mika is just evil and needed to be taken care of WARRIOR STYLE!!
Jax and Caroline had some troubles with communicating through the book but then when they can step back and see the other person’s perspective, they do both grow as a couple. Granted you want to kill Jax for being so stubborn because let’s face it, THAT Warrior is a hard nut to crack.
The side stories of finding Sloane a secretary….OMG TOOOOO MUCH!! Plus Steve is always a there for a funny laugh. The vampire just hasn’t learned when to shut his mouth…I mean he got a detention and he isn’t even in SCHOOL anymore…BWHAHAHAHAH!!!!
For me the book was great but I felt the ending was a smidge rushed at the ending The conflict at the end seemed a little bit fast and I almost thought the story was going to carry over to the next book. But the story is an awesome read and anyone who is a fan will love this installment!!
