I was born and bred to be the man I am today. My father and his father were both graduates from The United States Naval Academy in Annapolis. Both went on to become helicopter pilots. Both had seen plenty of action. Both had met and caused devastation. Both men, who I respect more above all, had served and protected the United States and her people honorably for decades.
My best friend, William Cruz, who attended the academy with me, had flown beside me, had lived the same life as I had and shared the same ambitions in life, was gone now. This was not part of the plan. Will and I were supposed to have each other’s backs, support each other and never let anything supersede our bond.
I sat on Norfolk Beach needing to feel close to him on the anniversary of his death. It was a beautiful day in May and I was cutting class. I had done the same every year since he passed.
Jaxson Irons was only supposed to be in Pensacola for a year. But now three years later I still hadn't heard from him. I saw a man running down the beach and I knew immediately who it was.
Jaxson didn't respond the way I had dreamed he would. He told me we would catch up someday soon. I stood and watched until he was gone.
Thump, thump. I placed my hand on my chest as I felt my heart beat again for what felt like the first time in three years. Thump, thump. I felt the blood moving quickly through my body. Its heat once again present. Thump, thump. I looked up at the sky and let out a breath. A breath that I had been holding forever. Thump, thump.
I felt tears fall down my face as I raised my hands in the air and laughed out loud. Just then the clouds parted for the first time in forever. I saw the sun smiling down on me.
My Rating: ★★★★.5
My Review:This was such an insane read -- in a good way! M. J. Fields is brilliant and I definitely plan to read the next book.
I gave this a 4.5 star rating simply because Frankie was too childish and I wanted to know more about Jaxson's family.
This follows both Jaxson "Jax" Irons and Francesca "Frankie" Cruz. Jaxson has just lost his bestfriend Will and Will is Frankie's older brother. During the time of the funeral Frankie kisses Jax and admits her feelings. Jax is stunned amd leaves.
After 3 years they are reunited. Frankie still has feelings for him, but she has a dark past. Jax has fallen for her but never had a stable relationship. Somehow, someway they work things out build a great relationship.
Jax is an awesome guy. Granted he treated women like crap majority of the time but he treated Frankie differently. With love and care. Jax admitted things were new to him and even though it was hard for me he still tried to make the relationship work for him.
Frankie is a very insecure young lady. Ever since her brother died she became hooked on sex and alcohol as an escape from the hurt and pain she felt. She totally got on my nerve majority of time because she whined too damn much. Especially on the scenes when she told him to go with Mimi...I want to punch her in the face for being whinny and dramatic.
The sex scenes were damn near intense and vulgar, but very enjoyable nonetheless. If you are not a sex kind of person I would say don't read this book because sex is throughout the book whether spoken or physically done.
That ending surprised the hell out of me. What happened to Frankie was wrong. What Jax found out about him and Mimi was a shocker and I just need to know more!!! Jaxson's mother pissed me off completely. I totally dislike her.
Overall I definitely plan to read the sequel and read more of M. J. Fields work.
