Jay’s Redemption (Ares Falls Billionaires #2) by Jax McKay
ABOUT THE BOOK
Charisma Quinn and I were at each other’s throats even before my father killed hers.
Something about her gets under my skin and won’t get out.
But she’s the key to a great new direction for my MMA promo company, so I have to come face to face with her again.
I can’t deny my attraction to her, even as we fight.
And I can’t deny the ghosts of our past either, especially when the sexual tension between us gets too intense to ignore.
The path to redemption isn’t going to be a smooth one for either of us…
This is the third book I’ve read in the Ares Falls Billionaire series and I was looking forward to reading Jay’s story. He made a good impression when he actually gave Violet the benefit of a doubt in book 2 when no one else did.
Jay and Charisma have a tragic past beginning when Jay’s father killed Charisma’s father because Charisma’s father killed Jay’s mother. Pretty bizarre, right? While this went down Jay and Charisma were having a volatile relationship in high school involving sex and fighting until one drunken night at a party some unforgivable things were said. Taking Jay’s angry words to heart, Charisma worked hard to prove him wrong that she would indeed leave their neighborhood and make something out of herself. Even to the point of stealing some of Jay’s MMA clients when he was a fight manager. Needless to say, there is some hostility between them when she wants his company to represent her new female MMA fighter.
The chemistry between these two is hot and steamy as they enjoy each other’s bodies while trying to hold back their feelings. Trust is a problem with both of them. Especially with Jay’s worries about his estranged father who is living with him after getting out of prison. And Charisma is dealing with serious issues between her crazy and unreasonable mother and her naive and immature brother. There is an interesting twist at the end that finally brings Jay and Charisma together.
The behind-the-scenes look at the MMA business is interesting and, of course, I look forward to reading Asher’s and Cash’s stories.
I recommend this steamy second chance romance filled with heat, love, angst, and a few twists and turns.
Thank you to Mr. McKay for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
