A Bookworm Review by Ana
Jax (A Cocky Cage Fighter Novel Book 1)
I give this book 5 stars!
For the lovers of MMA and love this is one book that you don’t want to miss.
Have a look at the blurb:
MMA Middleweight World Champion, Jackson “Jax” Malone has just entered the fight of his life. Known for his viciousness in the cage, and his playboy ways out of it, Jax is arrested and charged with a brutal rape. The thought of spending decades in prison is one of the few things that actually scares the shit out of this cocky fighter.
Newly admitted attorney Page Davenport is willing to do anything it takes to get out from under her father’s thumb and finally prove herself in his law firm. Anything except representing the infamous miscreant, Jackson “The Mauler” Malone. Despite her protests, Page is powerless to avoid becoming the sacrificial lamb, the token female, who will be the face of the violent, angry Neanderthal’s defense team.
Jax is a bad boy with a temper, doing whatever the hell he wants in life while flipping the bird at all his haters. Page is the prim and proper rich debutante her parents want her to be. They’ve been pulling her strings, telling her what to do, where to go to school, what to wear, and even who she should marry.
Page and Jax struggle to work together, engaging in a knock-down drag-out fight for dominance. When they finally stop taking swings at each other, they’re both surprised to realize that sometimes first impressions are completely wrong. In fact, opposites really do seem to attract. However, there are lines that attorneys and their clients can never cross if Page wants to keep her license to practice law.
Will Page risk it all and submit to the cocky fighter? Or will Jax’s temper and jealousy prove too much for her to take on outside of the courtroom?
Either way, one thing is for sure – neither Page nor Jax are going down without a fight. In the end, the secret for them to find heaven may be to battle their way through hell first.
This 72K word novel has a HEA with no cliffhanger.
It’s no secret that I’m in love with this author and was super excited to start reading this series.Lane Hart’s writing continues to be simple but in this case it has become more complex due to the theme addressed. All reading flowed smoothly and very catchy.JAX is the first book from the Cocky Cage Fighters Novel and just by its cover I knew I was going to find a very intense story.This book focused on the stories of Jax and Page.Page is a lawyer at her father’s firm but she wasn’t given the proper recognition. She was treated as an errand girl most days. One day, her dad told her that she will represent the infamous fighter Jax on a murder accusation. She wasn’t thrilled with that idea but she had something to prove to her dad and co-workers.How can we prove our value when our own family despises us? JAX is a MMA fighter that was accused of the brutal crime the he didn’t commit but everyone thinks he did. And because of that, he is subjected to ending his contract and endorsements, so he has to prove his innocence at all costs.When they intersect they cannot remain indifferent to the attraction they feel about each other, but the stubbornness and indifference are also present. Is the line that divides the love of hate so tenuous? Can two people who hate each other fall head over heels for each other?This book is super funny; the dialogue between the main characters is pretty hilarious. And of course the hot scenes are so present and so wild.In short, I love the whole story and the fact that once again Lane have focused on love. I’m very glad I started reading this series and quite upset it took me so long to start but my TBR is getting bigger so fast that I can’t keep up. Now I’m going to grab the next book in this series.
