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 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.

I am not sure if it is possible, but I think I love Jax more than Carter! I know, its hard to believe, but Jax just won my heart and I am hooked. He is a big cutie-pie that is rough on the outside but soft and gooey on the inside, but don't tell him I said that! He has a reputation and all. And I don't think I want to meet Candice down a dark alley either. She is an amazing woman that only has eyes for Jax, but do her wrong, and she will squeeze the life out of you. This gal is sassy and can hold her own.

If you have read Bastard, you will know little bits and pieces of Jax and Candice, and I am so glad their story has come to light. The time line for this book is exactly the same as Bastard, so technically you could read Jax first, then go to Bastard, either way would work. It was great hearing small bits of Carter and Indi in this book too.

Jax has come from a family of wealth and social standing, but it didn't get him anywhere. He has had to make some tough decisions and go out on his own. Candice hasn't had it easy either, but at least she has had her mum stand by her through thick or thin. They met through Jax's brother and become best friends not wanting to go any further and wreck the relationship that they have. But one drunken night goes too far, and things change for them in a big way. It will take more than a Peanut and a Puppy to make these two realise what everyone else knew from the beginning.
JL Perry did an awesome job with this book. And I would recommend it as a starting point, or to add to this series.

Jax is heading off to school to become a politician. It is only to make his parents happy. His heart is not in it.

Jax and Candice have been best friends for years. They both have feelings for each other but have kept to them self. They did not want to wreck their friendship. Well one night they both took it a little to far. Jax was not sure how to say goodbye to her, so he took cowards way out and left without saying goodbye to her.

They both try moving on but their is still a piece of them missing.

Jax hates school and his life. He wants to to take control of his life and make all his dreams come true.

I loved this story. I felt all the pain they both went through. I was rooting for them to finally come to their senses. I loved that Carter and Indi was included. I have a soft spot for them both. I like the fact that Jax doesn't conform to the norm. He is unique and goes after what he wants. Candice is a strong, sassy and passionate woman.

I look forward to your next release.

4.5 beautiful stars

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.
