RELEASE BLITZ & Reviews by Marina & Jackie: Jax by J.L. Perry

Title: Jax
Author: J.L. Perry
Publisher: Hachette Australia
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: November 27, 2016


My name is Jaxson Albright. To my friends I’m known as Jax. I’m the disgraced son of well-known Politician, Malcom Albright. You could say I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I was supposed to follow in my father’s footsteps and move into politics. My whole childhood was spent being groomed for this role, but that wasn’t what I wanted. I had other plans.

To my family’s disgust, I’m inked, I’m pierced and I own and run a tattoo parlour, in the hip suburb of Newtown. I fit in here. I can be the man I was destined to be, the man my family are ashamed of. The son they regret having.

I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for my saviour, Candice. My pink-haired angel. We grew up in the same circle, but like me, she’s an outcast. She refused to conform to society’s ways. She’s the only one who stuck by me and not only encouraged, but supported my dream.

I love her. No, correction—I’m in love with her. I have been for as long as I can remember. She has no idea how I feel. It’s a battle I struggle with daily. I’ve kept my secret all these years because I couldn’t risk losing her. That’s a chance I’m not prepared to take, because she’s my best friend; my only real family.

I’ve spent the last few years moving from one hot chick to the next, trying to mask these feeling I have. But it doesn’t help—I can’t get her out of my head. She still owns my damn heart.

How do you get over the girl you know you can never have? And how do you live without the one person on this earth who is made for you?

She’s my soulmate.

J L Perry is a mother and a wife. She was born in Sydney, Australia in 1972, and has lived there her whole life. Her love of reading, from a young age, gave her the passion to write. My Destiny was originally written for her sister, in 2013. It was never intended to be published. However, after finishing this book, she felt there was still a lot of Brooke and Logan's story left to tell. This inspired her to write My Forever. With the encouragement of her family and friends, she decided to follow her dream and become a published Author.

That dream was realised on the 6th of June, 2014.

My Destiny is her debut novel in the Destiny Series. My Forever is the conclusion to this book. Her third book Damaged - Jacinta's Story was released October 15th, 2014. This is a stand alone book, but is based on a character in My Forever. Her fourth book Against All Odds, is a stand alone book, as well, but part of the Destiny Series. Due to be released on the 27th May, 2015. She's also currently writing a fifth book, a standalone, that will be released later in the year. It's called 'A Beautiful Bastard'. This is NOT part of the Destiny Series.

J L's love of romance and happy endings makes a perfect combination when it comes to writing her beautiful love stories.

Her hobbies include reading, writing, drinking wine, shopping, listening to music, and anything artistic or creative. She loves spending time with her family, friends and her dog when she isn't writing. She also loves being outdoors and travelling and exploring the world.

There are not enough words to express how extraordinary this story is!
Without doubt this is a book that will tug at your heart so much! It certainly did mine! An insight to Jax's life starts with his family and the way they treated him. Then there is His best friend Candice and their friendship. When Jax leaves town to head to university, things don't go to plan for Candice. I really felt for her! To be honest I felt for them both and then wanted to smack their heads together!! I loved certain parts and came to the conclusion that Jaxson Albright is a very caring compassionate and helpful man!! A man so far removed from his political family, the way he turned out is a real credit to him! I loved the way this book was written. I loved the humorous parts, I laughed, I cried and I felt overjoyed at how it ended!i really could have kept on reading forever! A truly beautiful love story!! I would read anything this author writes!

It's taken me a while to write this review because I really am struggling to find the words to do it justice, this book blew me away. I started reading it and there was no way I was stopping, it was a marathon, no tea breaks read...... This is not just a story it's a journey.
Jax comes from a privileged background but it's not the life he wants, his parents show him no love or affection and the only person who has ever believed in him is his best friend Candice. But one night, lines are crossed and that changes everything for Jax and Candice. Jax soon regrets his actions that night but his letter explaining all of this comes back unopened. Years later fate steps in will true love win or is the past to hurtful to forget......
What else can I tell you, well this book will make you laugh, it will make you cry and it will have you believing in fate. It's a friend’s to lovers and a second chance romance all rolled into one. Wonderfully written book that will have you lost for words at the end and I mean that in the best possible way.
Another 5 Star read from a great author.
