Jax is a wonderful dichotomy, and this is the first time I can remember almost being jealous of a fictional character (Lily)!
~Lauren, Romance Novel Giveaways
This series is definitely Worth Reading.

I loved the story of Jax and how he didn’t just become another rich brat but held his Senator father up against the light and called him out on his phony life and how crappy he treated his mother.
I also fell in love with Lily. I loved how she embraced taking on part ownership of a chain of gyms that was her fathers pride and joy. How invested in that world she was and how she carried that on. She never gave a damn that most of the people she would be working with on a daily basis was mostly all men.
And then I fell in love with her and Jax’s relationship from the very beginning. How they fell so completely so quickly. Their time apart was really difficult for me! I did not like them being separated. I was very ready for them to get back together.
I’m glad that Caden got what he deserved. That was sweetness to read.
Great series, but this was my favorite.
I liked Jax and Lily, but really wanted to knock some sense into them a couple of times. For the most part, Jax was swoonworthy, if a bit too cocky for my taste. He should have been honest with Lily from the beginning -- he thought it was better if he wasn't, but he was wrong. And Lily, good grief, why on earth would she believe her abusive ex about what Jax did, instead of trusting him? That was just stupid.
Overall, this one gets 3.5 stars from me, rounded up to 4 stars.
I loved how Jax is a take charge kind of man. One look at Lily and he knew he needed to know her. Even if that meant dealing with her ex. I loved reading about the growth of Jax character. Going from being what his father wanted him to be to the man he wanted to become.
Lily was a great character. She was sweet and loyal. She was doing everything she could to keep her fathers dream alive. She was strong when she needed to be but also had a vulnerability about her also.
I loved these two as a couple. They just seemed to have fun together and their banter was fun to read.
My only criticism has to do with a proofreading issue. Example is site substituted for sight when the author describes a scene one character is observing. It distracts me and takes me out of the story
My Rating: 4½/5 stars
Jax Knight just can’t escape the wretched that is his father, Preston Knight. Angry and tired of dodging the press, Jax has decided that the only way to get on with his life is to leave DC for a while and escape into the anonymity that is New York City. Quite aside from being Preston Knight’s son, Jax has his own life: he is a very successful businessman, he trains almost relentlessly for an MMA “career” and, he doesn’t lack for companionship should he choose to engage in such activities. Jax likes his life and his privacy but with the scandal that is his father and his father’s reprehensible behavior, Jax just can’t find what he needs in DC.
On the outside, Lily St. Claire has the perfect life: she is part owner of a successful chain of MMA training centers, Ralley’s Gyms; she is happily single; has a delightful best friend and; takes art classes when she’s not working at the gym. That’s the outside. What the world doesn’t see is Lily’s ongoing and intense sadness over the loss of her beloved father and her intense desire to be totally free of her controlling ex, Caden. While most girls have the luxury of walking out the door and being done with their ex, Lily’s ex is related to her business partner and an MMA fighter who trains in the gym Lily works in. As if to rub salt in the wound, Caden calls Lily incessantly, questions her every move and action and, can’t take the hint that they are well and truly over. Lily is generally too nice for her own good but even she knows the situation with Caden has got to change.
On the recommendation of his DC trainer, Jax checks out a Ralley’s Gym almost as soon as he gets to New York. The new gym is good, the trainer will work out fine and, the beautiful young lady at the front desk is not just beautiful but talented and intriguing as well. There are just a few problems: she has a detestable ex who won’t leave her alone and she keeps trying to convince Jax that she doesn’t date. Huh? Really? Then maybe she will just help out a guy new to the city and looking to escape the media. For Lily, Jax’s presence in her life is as unsettling as it is exciting. Jax is strong, sexy and, determined to get close to her and that determination only becomes stronger after just a few hours of hanging out with Lily and seeing how Caden behaves around her. Jax figures out quickly that Caden is bad news and not just for Lily personally but for her business as well. On many levels, Jax presence is comforting and exciting and sensual but, Lily knows his time in DC is limited and getting involved is dangerous.
The dance between Jax and Lily is all kinds of fun to watch. Where Jax is aggressive in a gentlemanly kind of way, Lily is hesitant yet curious. They are both all kinds of interested in each other and their banter is laced with both humor and innuendo. Getting Lily to trust him is of the utmost importance but Jax is keeping things from Lily that will most certainly cause her to tuck her tail and run. Adding to the pressure of the secrets is Caden who is a constant nuisance and an escalating threat to Lily and her safety. Needless to say, Jax just won’t stand for Caden and his behavior and as things heat up on every level, so does the animosity between the two men. Clearly, the animosity can only be solved in the cage and man, oh man, is that one raging fight
The Bottom Line: Once again, Vi Keeland delivers a solid and entertaining read that has something for everyone. There is a steamy romance with more than a little cat and mouse, there is some excellent dick swinging between the boys, there are visits from past (favorite!) characters and, there is an excellent ending that ties up the entire series. Keeland is seemingly keeping this series short and sweet and as a result, the characters – both old and new – stay fresh and exciting. Both the short- and long-term plots are interesting and sexy with just the right amount of action. There is a fine selection of good and bad characters, all of which are fully developed and worth investing in. One of Keeland’s strengths is her dialogue whether it be quick and witty banter, arguments or, a dirty-talking sexy man. From beginning to end I was totally involved in this read and on the whole find it to be an excellent conclusion to what has become one of my favorite series.
