Jax by J.L. Perry • Release Day Blitz & Review

Title: Jax
Author: J.L. Perry
Publisher: Hachette Australia
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: November 27, 2016


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 the hip suburb of Newtown. 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 is made for you?

She’s my soulmate.

Review by Leeann:

This book is highly emotional. It is about 2 young people and the choices they make that alter the course of their lives in was neither of them saw coming. 
It is easy to fall in love with Jax but also be frustrated at his self indulgent pity parties. 
He often means well but sometimes his decisions affect more than just him and he fails to see it until after it is too late.
His parents leave alot to be desired bit he is proof that sometimes the apple can fall far far away from the tree!

Candice is gorgeous and she is the perfect balance for Jax. Together they are a force to be reckoned with. She knows it but she needs to get him to see it!

Jax has lots of opportunities to redeem himself but it really takes him getting out of his head to do it and when he does it is nothing short of spectacular.

This is a story about love, loss and redemption and is well worth one clicking. This author is once again proving that she the talent and the ability to create a world to escape into for a few hours where your emotions will be high and the story telling is amazing! Loved it!

5 Stars

Review by Gina:

People talk about insta-love in books...but I have to say, I insta-love theses characters!!! While Jax and Candice have their flaws, I just adore both of them and that made the book really hard to put down!

From the very start I was so enveloped with this story! It's a friends to lovers story with a twist. It was funny, sweet, heartbreaking and steamy! It was just everything that I love in a book. With it being a friends to lovers romance, it brought on a lot more emotions. Maybe because these are two characters to have so much history. Either way it was a fantastic read! The story was very well written giving the reader both point of views. The timeline of the book spans several years but the author did a great job letting the reader know where they were at with the story. 

This was my first book by this author and will not be my last. While reading I was thinking that Carter needed a book but wait...his book is already out!!! So, I can't wait to dive into that one! Jax is a must read!

5 Stars

Review by Kim:

This book is exactly why J. L Perry is quickly climbing the popularity ladder! 
I love everything about this book. 
Jax is the quiet, secretive one that we met in J. L's other best selling book. Most, like me were left wanting to know more about this quiet man named Jax and oh boy his book is a doozy! 
There's so much inside the pages of this book. I don't even know how to write this review without giving something away. 
I do want to say though that I really enjoyed revisiting Carter and Indiana and the closer look into Carter's and Jax's relationship. Their conversations made me smile more than once. 
Jax is full if twists and turns and secrets held and revealed. Of love lost and fou nd. Jax is also a story of forgiveness and second and third chances. Of never letting go even though you really want to. 
I can't even with this book. 
Jax is an amazing story that will touch you. 

5 Stars
