They say men like a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. I never knew the sentiment was reciprocal. Until I met Jax Knight. A gentleman in public, a commanding, dirty talking rogue in the bedroom.
Daughter of legendary fighter “The Saint,” Lily St. Claire knows firsthand how fighters can be. As the owner of a chain of MMA gyms, she’s no stranger to aggressive, dominating, and possessive men. That’s why she’s always kept her distance. But the day Jax Knight walks through her door she’s captivated by his charm. Stunningly handsome, well mannered, Ivy League educated, and confident, he shatters all the preconceived notions she’d come to think were true about men who trained to fight.
But falling for someone so soon after her breakup wasn’t something she’d planned on. And definitely not something her ex plans to allow.

“Tomorrow I move forward. On my terms. With my own plans. No looking back at the life I once thought I wanted. Because I never really wanted it, he just talked me into believing I did. And you know what? F*** him.”
Jackson Knight is finally moving out from under his Senator father’s thumb. No longer holding any respect for the man who raised him (barely) and finally finding a way to follow a dream. With the resources to do whatever he wants, thanks for his investment business, Jackson goes to New York. Not to just get away from his overbearing family, but to finally speak with the owners of Ralley’s Gym…his latest investment inquisition.
He never thought the person he’d be dealing with would be the one person who sets more than his gloves aflame. Lily St. Claire.
“Women have been on the back burner in my private life lately. Desire sort of goes out the window when your life implodes all around you. The one bright spot I’ve been looking forward to has been closing the deal on Ralley’s Gyms. The fact that my prospective partner is smokin’ hot is a total damn bonus.”
Wow. Look at Mr. Beautiful…
Lily St. Claire has no idea what to do with herself…and her overactive libido when it comes to Jackson Knight. Everything about him screams power, money, and pure, unadulterated sex appeal. But there is a softer side to him too. A side that Lily wants to get to know better…and fears will hurt her in the end. After all, he’s just here to close the deal on her gym. Nothing could happen between them, could it?
“Your body feels so right connected to mine,” Jax whispers, his words coming out labored, like it’s difficult for him to speak too. Swallowing hard, I avert my eyes, knowing he’s watching me, waiting for me to give him something. Anything. But even though I feel his words ringing true, his body feels so right connected to mine, something inside of me won’t let me give in to what I’m feeling…”Say it, Jax demands, lowering his face so we’re eye to eye. “Tell me you want me as much as I want you. I don’t give a sh*t what you should or shouldn’t do. I just need to hear you say it. Tell me you want me.”
Um, yeah. There is definitely a steam quality in this book that I absolutely loved. Jax (Jackson) Knight is a hot, alpha male and Lily is the perfect complement to his rough, yet smooth exterior. I can’t say I was too pleased with how she handled certain aspects of both hers and Jax’s relationship or her relationship with the bully, Caden. But I am pleased with the outcomes…on all aspects.
This is one of those books that catches you pleasantly by surprise. I’ve learned long ago that expectations lead to disappointment and I had none going into this story. I’m a visual girl and honestly, loved the cover. When I turned the pages, I was pulled into a story that held enough mystery, enough chemistry, and enough wit, that I read it one sitting. (I tend to do that a lot). I know the “summary” above doesn’t even come close to the depth of the story…I just wanted enough to pull you in, make you want to pick it up and see what happens. It’s well worth it. You might find that having “not enough” info makes for a fun surprising outcome! Enjoy. I know I did.
