Product Description

How do you live without the one person on this earth who was made for you? A sexy, emotional love story by the author of the #1 international bestsellers Hooker and Bastard, featuring the beloved character Jax.

My name is Jaxson Albright. My friends call me Jax. I was brought up privileged, and I was supposed to follow in my father's footsteps and move into politics, but 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, Sydney. I fit in here. I can be the man I was destined to be.

But I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my saviour, Candice. My pink haired angel. We grew up in the same circle - like me, she's an outcast. I have been in love with her for as long as I can remember.  I can't get her out of my head. She still owns my damn heart.

If you loved the emotional journey J.L. Perry took you on in BASTARD and HOOKER, you'll lose yourself entirely in JAX.

'J.L. Perry has captured every gut wrenching emotion in this poignant story of love, betrayal and reconciliation . . . Loved every word.'  CLiK Book Blog

'An incredibly powerful, sexy and touching love story that will always hold a place in my heart.' RBTL Book Promotions

'A rollercoaster of a ride for these two and I felt like I was with them through it all.' Amo and Sarah's Book Corner

'J. L. Perry you are exceptional. Jax's book was everything. It deserves way more than 5 stars.' Goodreads Reviewer

'As soon as I started Jax I couldn't put it down. It had me up until 2 am where I finally admitted I needed sleep at 50%. Needless to say, the first thing I did when I woke up was dive back into Jax's story and I didn't stop reading until I finished.' Lost to Books

'Highly recommended read for lovers of true romance, hot sex scenes, a great sense of humour and not afraid to shed a tear - believe me my heart broke several times whilst reading Jax.' Goodreads Reviewer

This is definitely one of my favourite books all year.
Jax has never fit in. Unless it was with his best friend Candice. His family think he is a disgrace, no matter what he does. But Candice is always there. The beautiful best friend he loves more than anything. And has done from day one.
Candice has always loved her best friend Jax and has been in love with him from the moment they struck up a conversation. She can never tell him though. He would never commit for her. Would he?

After a long platonic period in their friendship, both give in to wanting more. Elation is the only word for Jax’s emotions. Until he runs. Candice is crushed. Heartbroken.

Until one day, fate and a good deed done by Jax brings the two together again. Can they make it work this time? Will Jax or Candice ever be brave enough to say those three little words that mean so much?

I started this book thinking that I wouldn’t find Jax very relatable. His family are awful and I have never experienced that. It takes a lot for an author to get me on board with disliking a character’s family because it is really difficult for me to picture. That is until JL Perry immersed me in to Jax’s world.
This novel is written in dual POV but mainly from Jax’s perspective. Which is so amazing. This isn’t your typical “guy won’t commit for anyone” story. There are feelings and reasons behind Jax’s decisions – he isn’t a typical douche.
I fell in love with Jax’s character almost immediately because of JL’s writing style. I had never read any of her books before, so I wasn’t prepared for the flawless content.
Candice was such a beautiful girl/woman and I empathised, cried and took tantrums with her throughout.

It has been a while since Bastard, so it was great to get back in that world.

If you have read Bastard, you will have met Jax and Candice, but that gives us nothing on what their story is.

I am struggling to put into words my thoughts on this book. It is one of those books that is not just a book, it is a journey that we are taken on along with the characters.

From the first word to the last, I couldn't put it down, I just needed to know what happened next.

Jax and his Candice's story is not a simple friends to lovers, second chance romance. It is so much.

A ran through the whole gamut of emotions. I can't tell you how many tears I shed as their story unfolded. I wanted to shake some sense into Jax so he could see what was right under his nose. I wanted to slap some sense into the pair of them for their actions at times.

But most of all I wanted them to see who they really were to each other.

I LOVE that it is set in my home town of Sydney. So many books are set in places around the world that I have never been, so it is nice to be able to picture where the story is happening.

I don't know how else to really put into words how much I love this book, other than to to say read it, you won't be disappointed.

4.5 Stars from me

This is another great read by J L Perry. Jax follows the story of Jaxon Albright, who we met in Perrys previous book Bastard. Jax is the son of a politician and he’s dad, Malcolm, always wanted him to follow in his footsteps and become a politician too. But he had other ideas, he’s Inked, he’s pierced and he runs his own Tattoo parlour in Sydney. Jax owes everything he is today to his childhood friend Candice. Like Jax, she’s different, she has the most amazing Pink hair. She’s the daughter of a single mother who refused to be like all the other girls. Their difference to everyone else is something that drew them together and she always encouraged Jax to follow his dreams. After years of not seeing each other Jax and Candice literally run into each other in the street and they start to spend time together. Candice has always been supportive of Jax and encourages him to follow his dreams. Jax realises he love Candice, always has, but there are secrets between the two of them. When these secrets come out there is major dramas, twists and turns. I really enjoyed this book as we got to see more of the other characters from Bastard. Will these “secrets” cause more drama or will Jax and Candice get their HEA they both deserve. You will have to read to find out...

Oh my. Friends to lovers to enemies to friends to lovers to enemies to......... Jax and Candice, I swear I wanted to bang their heads together. Two lost souls that are, in my mind, destined to be together, but, after one perfect night, Jax ups and disappears out of Candice's life leaving her bereft. Fast forward 3 years and they find each other again, but can they go back to their friendship after all that has passed? Even though it appears their feelings haven't changed, so much has happened, then when Jax discovers Candice has been keeping things from him, it's suffice to say their friendship will never be the same again. Although Jax maintains that Candice is one of the most stubborn people ever, I have to disagree, that title should totally go to Jax. I was so frustrated with him at times. Written in dual POV, I was on tender hooks wondering what would happen next. Some wonderful supporting characters too. Really enjoyed this story, a wonderful spinoff from Carter and Indiana. I was desperate for their HEA. I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
