Jax has been in love with Emmie for years, but because he was older, he planned to wait until her eighteenth birthday to make his move. Sadly, his Grandmother died the week before and he was forced to quit college and raise his two younger brothers. Emmie left town before he ever told her how he felt. Now she's back and he intends to make her his.

Emmie has had a crush on Jax for as long as she can remember. When she and her two friends decide to spend their summer back home, she plans on letting him know. They run into each other the day she arrives in town, and the spark between them is obviously mutual. Instead of making a move right away, Jax flirts hard and implies that Emmie isn't ready for him yet. Emmie soon learns that Jax is right.

I loved Jax. He was put in charge of his brothers at a young age and did what needed to be done to raise them. He has a dominant side and is worried he'll scare Emmie. Emmie is a tease. We were warned in the book description, I just didn't expect her to get on my nerves so badly. She tries to come across as this self assured bad girl, however she safe words the first time she and Max are together. And not for the reason you're thinking. Instead of explaining why, she leads Jax to think he did something wrong. She's not a bad character, I just didn't personally connect with her. Other than Emmie, I really liked the story. It was a short story and kept my attention the entire time.

We're introduced to both of Jax's brothers and I can't wait for Slate's story next. He's seriously troubled and used to date one of Emmie's best friends. I'm looking forward to their story.

I absolutely loved this first book in Kelly Gendron’s new series. Jax grabbed me from the beginning and I could not put the book down. I admit losing sleep until I finished and so glad that I did. Definitely the “carrot” leading me along was Jax’s restrained control just percolating beneath his skin anytime he is around Emmie, and anticipating when he would lose all that sexy control with her. I was tickled by all the verbal banter between them with all those sexual innuendos flying all over the place. Definitely, I would vote Jax a winner in a dirty talk contest.

Poor Emmie never stood a chance with all that delectable sexual charm and playfulness from Jax. She’s left wondering what life could be like with such a hunk as she’d always crushed on Jax since high school but never had the courage to let him know. And Jax felt the same, but events prevented him realizing those feelings for Emmie. Now Emmie’s back in town for the summer after 6 years away, and both have a second chance to find out what’s behind their attraction. But Jax’s past secret might just ruin his chances with Emmie.

Ms. Gendron did an excellent job on a well written story. The story flowed seamlessly with no unnecessary duplicate scenes, and the main characters were likeable. With Emmie’s and Jax’s point of view I felt I was right there in the middle of the story. And the lovin’ was hot! It was a pleasure to read and I was thoroughly entertained. I’m looking forward to Slate’s story in the next book.

The blurb of this book made me one-click it as soon as it went live, and then I couldn't wait to dive into it and see what this story was all about!

Jax is an amazing, fast paced, hot read that I was not able to put down! We meet Emmie Rue, and her two friends head back to Texas for the summer after being gone for a few years. They had all their sites on breaking the Declan brothers, but when Emmie Rue and Jax meet up, she's afraid that he may be the one breaking her by the time summer is over.

Emmie Rue has had a crush on Jax since high school, she wasn't expecting him to still be single, and to have gotten hotter when she came back, but he's single, and definitely hot. The attraction between the two is still there, and even though Emmie Rue has always wanted Jax, she never knew that he felt the same about her, but was waiting till she was old enough to start something with him.

I loved the banter and back and forth between these two, the anticipation of these two finally getting together had me on the edge of my seat, I knew it would be hot, but wow.. it was HOT! I loved watching Jax trying to scare Emmie Rue away, and Emmie Rue never backing down.

Watching their relationship progress over the summer, and learning of Jax's past demons, was a beautiful read. I enjoyed every single part of Emmie Rue and Jax's story. The chemistry between the two of them is hot and Jax will have your heart beating so fast with some of the things he says.

Kelly Gendron did an amazing job with this book, the writing flows, the characters are easy to love and easy to hate, and you can definitely feel the pain and love these characters have.

My Review: (ARC provided)
4.5 stars!

This book is exactly what I needed, not crazy over the top angsty but just enough. It was fun and sexy, yet took a bit of a serious tone too. The story of Jax (H) and Emmie (h) is fast paced and easy to read. The prologue grabbed me and throughout the book I kept going back to it thinking it was one thing, but WOW it wasn't and I was surprised. I loved Jax and Em's back and forth teasing and banter and their little sexual innuendos, they made me laugh. I also really liked Em's friends and I'm hoping/thinking that we will be getting more of them in the future. We also get a glimpse of Jax's other brothers in this book so I can't wait to get more on them.

Emmie and her friends decide to go back to her home town for the summer full well knowing she will run into the guy she has crushed on since she was a teenager. She's older now and knows what she wants so her and her friends have a plan to make that happen.

Jax has had a thing for Emmie for a long time but the timing was never right for him, when he sees her again back in town he makes it his mission to have her. He wants all of her though not just the "beauty queen" on the outside. He has a past that he is afraid to tell Emmie about, a past that has made him who he is today. Will he be able to tell her the truth? Or will he be too afraid and let her slip away?

Emmie was a confident heroine and I loved it! My only con was I wish she would of played a little more hard to get with Jax, instead when he said jump she did. I understand she just wanted him that much but with her confidence I thought she may have gave him a harder time.

Jax was the whole freak'n package, at least for me he was.
