Full of swagger and sensuality, the Caldwell Brothers series—perfect for fans of Katy Evans and Emma Chase—packs an emotional punch as the last bachelor standing fights for a woman who’s worth every ounce of trouble.
Jagger Caldwell is no one’s hero. With a reputation busting heads and breaking hearts on the underground MMA circuit, he lives for easy cash and easier women. But when he stumbles upon an all-too-familiar scene, painful memories awaken Jagger’s sensitive side and compel him to act. As a kid, he stood by helplessly as his old man beat his mom. Now, Jagger won’t let seventeen-year-old Tatiana Rand suffer the same fate. Nothing matters except saving her.
Tatiana is a prisoner in her own home, at the mercy of her violent father—until an unlikely savior bursts through her door and into her life. Six-feet-plus of tattooed muscle and raw power, Jagger is no prince charming—but Tatiana stopped believing in fairy tales long ago. Despite their differences in age and, well, everything else, the sexy bad boy sparks a fire that Tatiana never knew she had—and desires that only Jagger can quench.
Family, fights and forgiveness are the three words that come to mind reading this book. You will see that there is nothing stronger than family especially when you are loved strong. Fights are there to help some deal with the inner fighting they are going through and forgiveness can be your strongest weapon in life. This book leaves you with a calming feeling after taking you to some pretty dark places. I love the strength that was given to Tatiana after seeing how she was abused time and time again by someone who is supposed to love and protect her. In the book that strength grew from the person that knew how to show love for her in every way possible. Jagger knew that first and foremost in order to make Tatiana strong enough to never endure what she went through she, herself, would have to know how to become strong in body and in her soul.
Jagger was the fighter and came that way of an abusive father but had a mother that endured that abuse for her sons to be able to one day provide a legacy that would make that same mother very proud of the men they became. Jagger knew to take that fight he felt to the ring and he thrived on making his mother’s legacy mean something to not only himself but to everyone around him. It was by doing this that his mother would live on in her son and help him take the path to a life of happiness where that darkness did not exist.
The love and lessons from this book on Jagger and Tatiana will have you rooting for this couple to make it out of all that bad that they had come from. The passion and patience that they had for each other was undeniable. After reading such an all-consuming book the authors give you some very funny moments in the end that will make you remember this book as something special.
