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 never felt so torn as I do now. I love Carter but Jax has squeezed his way into my heart.
I first got introduced to Jax and Candy in Bastard when I meet Carter and Indi. I always felt that Jax and Candy had a story to tell and I always wondered what there journey was and JL Perry didn't disappoint when she told there story. This book has some heartache and is emotionally packed.
JL Perry never disappoints me. I recommend this book to everyone.
