The last book in the Fighter Series could easily be read as a standalone. The author has made sure that the reader isn’t in the slightest bit confused when describing her characters in a plot so fast moving that I didn’t put the light out until silly o’ clock! Reading Jax and Lily’s moving love story is without a doubt, unputdownable.
Jackson Knight, Jax, is not only the blue-eyed boy in every sense of the word; but this smart, successful investor is also the perfect gentleman. All said and done, he’s been well-brought-up in a privileged surrounding. Knight is a name that carries weight with the wealthy and influential. Even though they trust him with their money, we’ll have to see whether or not he can trust them back. He has no qualms about fighting for what he wants though. And I do mean fight! When his plans to invest in a business which specializes in his passion, he didn’t bank on having to cross so many peaks and valleys with Lily who inherited half of it from her father. He has just had about as much as he can take with his father’s scandals and what should have been plain sailing complicates by the minute.
The last thing Lily needs in her life is another amorous relationship. She’s still trying to ward off her ex who will not take no for an answer, makes her feel guilty, and virtually makes her life impossible. Caden is a nasty piece of work! The problem is that it’s not so easy for her to steer clear of this jealous and highly aggressive individual. And another problem she has is Jax! She can’t take her eyes of him, she likes his company and it doesn’t take them long to find out that they have a lot of things in common. I just loved the mealtime scenes. It has put a new perspective on the word! He worms his way under her skin with all his innuendos, outstanding banter and who doesn’t lay their eyes on a body like Jax’s is missing out! Oh my God, I’d definitely let him worm his way under by skin!
I wish Lily could have come across as a stronger person, but I think that this is understandable having been sheltered by an overly protective father all of her life. Jax will make mistakes and she will too, but hers had me floored. Why on earth she trusted who she did, well knowing that this person had been causing so much friction, was beyond me! Grrr…I would have gladly strangled her at this point in the story! The plot is extremely feasible, good and solid, and all the characters are well described. There are some brilliant bite your nails scenes, and the author managed to get me all worked up regarding Jake’s insistence on getting vengeance the way he did. Ooooh yeah! What we all like to read in this type of genre is some hot sex. It isn’t hot; it’s sizzling! And what I liked more than anything here was when Jax takes his suit off. This polite and courteous man has a really dirty mouth when undressed and his vocabulary is so vividly described that you’ll need to get your fan out. Bravísimo sums this book up to a tea!
