The realization that Jax still affected me so strongly was a jagged pill to swallow. He’d only been part of my life for five short weeks two years ago. But now he was back. Walking into a deal I’d worked hard to close. And God, he was magnificent. His eyes were a brown so dark they were nearly black. Thickly lashed, they were relentless in their intensity. Had I really thought they were soft and warm? There was nothing soft about Jackson Rutledge. He was a hard and jaded man, cut from a ruthless cloth.
In that moment I understood how badly I wanted to unravel the mystery of Jax. Bad enough that I didn’t mind how much it was going to cost me...
I do love Sylvia Day, I love the Crossfire series (note to self, must get around to reviewing that series). I was a little apprehensive about trying out this series though because I think Day excels at the Crossfire series because of its length, and I know from experience that Cosmo Hot Reads are short, but since I knew this was going to be a two parter I decided to give it ago.
I know in the past I have said how much I am not really a fan of novellas, but I am coming around to them having a place in my reading style. Every once in a while I need a quick read, and this is where these Cosmo Hot Reads fit in for me.
The main thing I love about this book is that it is written very much in Day’s typical style, her writing voice is great and very addictive for me, I have a hard time putting down her books for just that reason.
The story for Jax and Gia are on opposite sides of a business deal and they have a history. One that didn’t exactly end well. To make matters worse Jax is getting in the way of Gia’s new career path, but at the same time they just have such great chemistry.
This book does end in a cliff hanger, so I don’t want to say too much in this review, but it was a fun read, and I was definitely looking forward to reading the conclusion of this series. If you like Sylvia Day you should check out this novella.
