“Some boys can get rough, some don’t always listen when you tell them to stop, and some boys, they’re just monsters. You gotta be careful who you play with…” ~ Jax Declan
I’m a tease, always have been. In my teens, Jax Declan tried to warn me about staying away from the bad boys. The only boy I ever wanted was Jax. But, no matter how much I tried to play with him, he rejected me.
I haven’t seen Jax Declan in years. A couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. A little older now, and a bit wiser, I’ve decided that I’m going to find my teenage crush and I’m going to break him. This summer Jax Declan will play with me.
But the closer I get and the more I learn about the reserved, discreet, and sexy Jax Declan. Well, I’m starting to think that Jax Declan might just be one of those bad boys he tried to warn me about all those years ago.
Jax is my new Book Boyfriend!
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book I've read by this author and I'm looking forward to reading more.
The Declan brothers are smoldering hot on the outside and all kinds of complicated on the inside. This book's main focus was Jax but there was plenty of set-up for future books for Slate and Zeke.
Jax is the oldest and was responsible for taking care of his younger brothers. Em was a girl they all grew up with as friends. She had always flirted with Jax but he knew he was too old for her so his plan had been to wait until she turned 18 and then he was going to ask her out. Things didn't go as planned and she ended up leaving town and going to college, starting a career and life away from where she grew up without Jax ever letting her know how he felt about her.
Em and two of her friends decide to go back home for the summer to have fun. Em's plan is to finally break Jax and get him to sleep with her. What she doesn't expect is for both of their hearts to get involved. She finds out that Jax has always wanted her, even though she thought he was rejecting her. They have strong feelings for one another, but a lot of time has passed since they last knew one another and they aren't the same people that they used to be as teenagers.
A situation from Jax's past is thrown right at Em's face and she has to decide what she's going to believe about him. Trust me, it's impossible not to fall for Jax. He's responsible and loyal to his little brothers; having given up college in order to take care of them and still made a successful career for himself and his brothers too. He's honest even when it might be easier for him to lie, even when he knows he could lose Em over it he still tells the truth.
"You listen to me, Emmie Rue. I will never ever hurt your heart, princess. I will never break it. The only thing I want is to be a part of it. I want you to feel me deep inside of it." Whose heart wouldn't melt if the guy they'd always wanted said that to them? He says what he feels without holding anything back.
This was a delightfully engaging love story with plenty of spice. I definitely recommend it to all romance readers!
Didn't want it to end!!! Fast pace romance that tugs on your heartstrings. Hope there is a sequel
Sweet, sexy and very very bad!!
Having never read this author before, I'll admit I was apprehensive, but I took a chance based on the cover. I know... how shallow of me. But I'm so glad I did, Jax grabbed me from the beginning of the story and he did not let go. He's everything a girl could want...sweet, sexy and very very bad! Once Ms. Gendron threw in the tattoos and the MMA I was a puddle on the floor. The characters of Jax and Emmie are well defined and told through alternating POV's. The story flowed seamlessly with no unnecessary scenes. I absolutely loved this book! Can not wait for the next installment of the Declan Brothers. I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.
