Or, at least she thought she had forgotten how he effected her until she learned he was their latest bounty and he turned into a runner right before her eyes.
Dale didn’t even want to be thrown back into bounty hunting with her brothers and she really didn’t want to be involved when Jax was involved. She may hate him, but he had never gotten into this kind of trouble. He said he just needed the weekend to get things sorted out then they could take him in. Jax was never one to shirk away from his responsibilities and always accepted the consequences for his actions which had Dale questioning why he needed to wait to go to jail.
As Dale began to ask around about Jax and why he was in trouble in the first place, she realized that Jax may not be the trouble maker she originally thought.
In Dale’s attempt to bring Jax in on her own to prove to her brothers that she isn’t a complete screw up, she makes a rash decision to help him make it through the weekend.
As Dale turns her back on her family, she opens her heart to Jax which is dangerous for the both of them, yet, she can’t help those feelings that are returning. Dale soon realizes they may have never left.
Jax and Dale must decide what to do after the weekend is up and Jax has to go to jail. Do they just go back to the way things were, or did life just get more complicated for them?
I liked Dale because she was awkward, yet stubborn and hard-headed. She went after what she wanted without much thought to what would happen. But, she was self-conscious too, which made her more realistic for me. Her reactions to Jax caused me to have those exact same reactions and after reading a vast number of NA novels, I don’t tend to have that reaction much anymore.
Jax was just, well, *Swoon*. Rough on the edges, a fighter through and through not willing to lose a match or his reputation. He is caring of Dale as well as others that you wouldn’t expect unless you knew him. I liked that he was a bad boy that accepted his consequences instead of playing victim like a lot of bad boy characters tend to do. I admired him all the more for it.
If you know me, you know that novellas don’t usually do it for me. They are nice when I need just a quick fix on fiction and someone else’s life, but other than that, they don’t dive down deep into the characters, their lives, their situation as much as I would like them to. Tijan does a miraculous job of taking this complex story and giving me so much more than any other novella ever has. It is nice to know there will be more of Jax and Dale’s story in a full length novel, but even without that, I was satisfied by the end of Fighter.
Jaxon (Jax) Cutler is a fighter and on the run from the law for not showing up for a court hearing. He needs to help his sister first then he will turn himself in but he has to stay ahead of the Holden clan of bounty hunters and there are many of them. When the hunters track him down he is surprised to see Dale with them and because of her ineptness is able to get away from her brothers but not without helping her when she gets hurt chasing him. He has really missed her and he trusts her and tells her his sister’s story knowing she will understand what he has to do and why.
This was a cute amusing novella that had me smiling often. It strained my credibility a bit with the heroine being one of ten children. Who has that many children nowadays? I loved how they were named. Jax and Dale get into some very interesting situations which had me laughing and kept me turning the pages. They are a very likable couple but it’s not until near the end that you find out what had split them apart, a misunderstanding, and in their absence they both matured some but the chemistry between them and their feelings for each other were still very much in play. The ending had me smiling; besides amusing it was very sweet. I enjoyed this novella and look forward to the next book with these characters which the author mentioned there will be in a note at the end.
This was a quick read. Way too quick, because I love Tijan’s writing and I needed more! Wah, cry me a river, I know! It was fairly light-hearted, even though it was about and underground fighting ring, bail jumping, bounty hunters and a touch of organized crime.
Delia “Dale” Holden is the only daughter of two deceased parents, and she was finished being raised by her 9 nine brothers…yes, NINE and all with “D” names. (However, the two most prominently seen brothers are Dean and Dylan.) After Dale graduated high school, she decided to go to college instead of joining the family business. But while she’s home over Christmas break, her brothers put her to work.
Unfortunately, the current bail jumper is her ex-boyfriend Jaxon. He’s the one guy who she just has always had problems quitting and staying away from. The one man who she always seemed to get into trouble with when they were together.
When she learns why he has a warrant out for him and why he has to fight in this competition until the championship round and win… She decides to help him stay out of her brothers’ grasp in exchange for taking him into jail when the competition is over. She just has to protect her heart while she is at it.
One thing that was somewhat confusing was their ages. If we assume that Dale went to college right after high school at 18, then we know their ages. But that is somewhat hard to believe with their friend Chris only being 18 and in control of “the family” instead of an older, more experienced man.
I’m looking forward to more from this series and will be following it!
