A Bookworm Review by Ana
I give this book 5 stars!
When your heart knows…it knows…
Have a look at the blurb:
That’s what people call me.
But all it took was a single phone call to bring me to my knees.
Five years later, my life has changed irrevocably forever.
Though someone lurks in the shadows threatening to tear all that I love apart.
An obsession of the worst kind.
Can I keep the woman I love safe?
Or will everything burn to ash…
Can be read as a standalone but characters from other book series make cameo appearances. To have a better knowledge of who’s who it is recommended to read these before Jax.
Mike (Henderson Security Book 1)
Thor (Thorny Devils Book 1)
Hulk (Thorny Devils Book 2)
It’s been a while since I had a book from this author to read and I was curious to see what was in store for us.
Her last book caught my attention and o was having super high expectations.
MLJ Quigg has raw writing, filled with hotness and some mystery.
Let’s just see.
Jax is her latest release and it’s the first book from the Knight Attack series.
This new book explores the lives of Jax and Layla.
Jax is the lead singer for the Knight Attack. He’s well known by every fan but that can be a curse.
Layla lost it all because of a man and needed to relocate to a new town to start over. She’s a live-in nanny a job that she loves. She loves the kids, not the parents. Lol
One night when she answers the phone…
It was an amazing book, and I really enjoyed it.
Amazing plot, well written, engaging, and hot.
Oh boy. So hot.
The story started slowly and quickly it evolved.
I saw myself glued to my kindle and reading non-stop.
Chapter after chapter I saw the need to now more getting bigger.
It was a sweet story with some hotness into the mix.
The characters worked perfectly with each other and I wanted more.
And now that it’s over, I really want more from the rest of the band as well as from these two.
Great book MLJ Quigg. Wonderful book.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
A Few Teasers:
“For curiosity’s sake, how did you get my number?”
“I got your number by pushing random numbers on my cell, and it rang. Thanks for answering and being so good about it. A family meeting sounds like a good idea. What’s your name?”
“My name is Layla. What’s yours?”
“Jaxson, but everyone calls me Jax.”
God, that voice, it was like butter. So seductive and smooth. Deep and gravelly but had that sexy rasp to it that musicians usually have. I could imagine the man behind the voice, and that made me tingle between my legs. Fuck! I needed to get laid if his voice alone was turning me on.
“What do you do, Jax?”
“I’m in a band.”
Okay, that was cool.
I wondered what Jax did in the band. Did he play the guitar? Play the drums. Or was he a singer?
With that voice, my guess? He was a singer. How famous was he? Who knew.
“That’s amazing, Jax. What’s the band’s name?”
No fucking way.
This had to be a joke.
Knight Attack was massive.
They were the biggest breakout band in Australia, and they had only recently gone worldwide with great success. I used to listen to them in Australia, well, I still listened to them. Everyone knew back home that I was a massive fan of the group. This had to be a practical joke. My guess? My brother was behind it. Bobby would do anything to get me back home.
“Fuck off! No way! You are not Jax from Knight Attack. Who is this, really? Did my brother put you up to this? I bet it was Bobby. Tell that meddling brother of mine I am not falling for it, and I’ll come home when I’m good and ready. Jax from Knight Attack? Ha-ha, really, I wasn’t born yesterday,” I ranted.
Yeah, I was on a roll. My mum and brother, Bobby, had been hounding me to stop sulking and come back home. Like I wanted to be in a small country town in the middle of Australia where everyone knew everyone and what you ate for breakfast, especially after what had happened to me. The biggest humiliation of my life so far. No, thanks. Jax interrupted my internal dialogue as he said, “Okay, I’ll prove it. Tomorrow morning, we are on Good Morning America at ten. I’ll say your name and dedicate a song to you. If you’re watching and believe me, ring me back on the number you now have on your phone. I gotta go, though. We’re about to go on.” Then he hung up.
He. Hung. Up.
What the fuck just happened?

About the author:
MLJ lives in NSW, Australia, with her husband, three adult children, and six cats—yes, you heard that right, six.
Growing up in a huge family of eight kids was always noisy and didn’t give her enough alone time to unwind.
Books have always given her an outlet from the craziness that is her life. Nothing is better than curling up with a good story to take her mind off her surroundings.
As a new author, she hopes you enjoy her stories and that they help you get out of your world and into hers for a few hours.
