Review ~ Jax by J.L. Perry

JaxeARC received via a tour company in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: November 27th 2016

Publisher: Hachette


My name is Jaxson Albright. To my friends I’m known as Jax. I’m the disgraced son of well-known Politician, Malcom Albright. You could say I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I was supposed to follow in my father’s footsteps and move into politics. My whole childhood was spent being groomed for this role, but that wasn’t what I wanted. I had other plans.

To my family’s disgust, I’m inked, I’m pierced and I own and run a tattoo parlour, in Sydney. I fit in here. I can be the man I was destined to be, the man my family are ashamed of. The son they regret having. 

I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for my saviour, Candice. My pink-haired angel. We grew up in the same circle, but like me, she’s an outcast. She refused to conform to society’s ways. She’s the only one who stuck by me and not only encouraged, but supported my dream. 

I love her. No, correction—I’m in love with her. I have been for as long as I can remember. She has no idea how I feel. It’s a battle I struggle with daily. I’ve kept my secret all these years because I couldn’t risk losing her. That’s a chance I’m not prepared to take, because she’s my best friend; my only real family. 

I’ve spent the last few years moving from one hot chick to the next, trying to mask these feeling I have. But it doesn’t help—I can’t get her out of my head. She still owns my damn heart.

How do you get over the girl you know you can never have? And how do you live without the one person on this earth who was made for you? 

She’s my soulmate.

My Opinion

I loved this book. When it arrived on my Kindle I had to dive in straight away. However, due to the longer length I assumed it would take me a few days to get through since my schedule is crazy right now. I should have known better.

As soon as I started Jax I couldn't put it down. It had me up until 2am where I finally admitted I needed sleep at 50%. Needless to say, the first thing I did when I woke up was dive back into Jax's story and I didn't stop reading until I finished. I now have a pile of work that's built up, but it was definitely worth it.

Jax was adorable. He was a genuine, loving guy and I fell for him hard. Despite his crappy family, he's so compassionate and gentle. I believed in his emotions the entire way through and I really felt for him. Similarly, I liked Candice's toughness. Although their situation was predictable, I loved watching it unfold.

This story is just heartwarming and beautiful. It held my interest, engaged with me emotionally, and I couldn't put it down.

Overall, I loved this just as much as Bastard. It's been awhile since I read Carter's story, but this book brought it all back. I'd definitely recommend!
