Publisher's Summary

MMA middleweight world champion Jackson "Jax" Malone has just entered the fight of his life. Known for his viciousness in the cage, and his playboy ways out of it, Jax is arrested and charged with a brutal rape. The thought of spending decades in prison is one of the few things that actually scares the shit out of this cocky fighter.

Newly admitted attorney Page Davenport is willing to do anything it takes to get out from under her father's thumb and finally prove herself in his law firm - anything except represent the infamous miscreant, Jackson "The Mauler" Malone. Despite her protests, Page is powerless to avoid becoming the sacrificial lamb, the token female, who will be the face of the violent, angry neanderthal's defense team.

Jax is a bad boy with a temper, doing whatever the hell he wants in life while flipping the bird at all his haters. Page is the prim and proper rich debutante her parents want her to be. They've been pulling her strings, telling her what to do, where to go to school, what to wear, and even who she should marry.

Page and Jax struggle to work together, engaging in a knockdown drag-out fight for dominance. When they finally stop taking swings at each other, they're both surprised to realize that sometimes first impressions are completely wrong. In fact, opposites really do seem to attract. However, there are lines that attorneys and their clients can never cross if Page wants to keep her license to practice law.

Will Page risk it all and submit to the cocky fighter? Or will Jax's temper and jealousy prove too much for her to take on outside of the courtroom?

Either way, one thing is for sure - neither Page nor Jax are going down without a fight. In the end, the secret for them to find heaven may be to battle their way through hell first.

JAX

Any additional comments?

This was a really good book by Lane Hart The story line was interesting and the characters were well developed. I read the book through in one sitting because I had to know what happened. Well worth the time to listen to the audiobook.

Fun!

I found this to be a really fun read. I really liked the characters, or really didn't like the ones that weren't likable. And, I felt Jude stole the show. There were parts here and there that hovered on the line of realistic, but were definitely possible. But, the story flowed very well.
And, the narration?! This was my first Aaron Shedlock listen and I was very impressed. His female voice was amazing, his characterizations spot on, and he was just totally engaged. He pulled you in right from the beginning. And, he has a very nice voice to listen to. Having a great voice and knowing how to use it is narrator gold. I am definitely a fan. Although the description made me wonder if this was a dark book, it wasn't by any means. It was light and fun for the most part, but not so much so that it would be total fluff. I totally enjoyed it.

More Than a Cage Fight

This was so much more than a cage fighter book, and it deserved a better cover. I honestly thought it would be pretty light with some hot sex but it was SO MUCH MORE...

This was my first Lane Hart book but it won't be my last. She created a multifaceted plot with multidimensional characters. The witty banter, the sexual tension, playfulness and finally the hot and sexy scenes all came together to make this an unforgettable listen.

Shedlock's narration was perfect for the book. I enjoyed listening to Jax and recommend it to any romance lovers. It was so good I'm eagerly awaiting Jude's story... hey Jude! When can I listen to your story?

Enjoyed watching these two form their relationship

Where does Jax rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I don't usually love MMA fighter books but I did love this one. For some reason the way Page and Jax came together had me hooked. I also loved Jax's family, so much so I bought Jude's audio book right away.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Jax?

So many things, their first time traveling together to the time he was away. The time it took for them to admit they were both wanting to be together was believable.

Which character – as performed by Aaron Shedlock – was your favorite?

Aaron Shedlock gave a great performance. He had the right amount of emotion and character differences that I was able to follow along with no problem and did not zone out or get bored. I have listened to one other book he narrated and while I did not love the book I gave him 5 stars for his performance.

Any additional comments?

I can't wait to start Jude next, he was a great character.

WOW

Simply put, a fantastic listen. Aaron Shedlock was perfect in his narration. I've heard him once before and he's just great.

The story was riveting. I don't often hear such a complete work in less than 7 hours. This was my first book by Lane Hart and will definitely not be my last. The romance was took time; not an "instant love" stupid thing. And the courtroom drama kept me guessing and on the edge. Jude, Jax's brother, was included enough (and made desirable enough) that you'll want to go on to his story in the next book.

Great Big Two Thumbs Up!!

Great listen

I didn't know what to expect when I first listen to this as most of the reviews I've read has varied a great deal but I was pleasantly surprised as I this turned out to be a great listen.

Jax and Page had great chemistry and there was some great sexual tension between them which enhanced the story.

Aaron Shedlock did a great job narrating.

I'll definitely read/listen to the rest of this series.

Must Listen! Hot Fighter!

What did you like best about this story?

The back and forth with the feelings and the situation they were in. Even though they shouldn't have been together and fought it at first, they just couldn't walk away from one another!

Which character – as performed by Aaron Shedlock – was your favorite?

Jax would be my first favorite, but Jude is an EXTREMELY close second place there!

Any additional comments?

I just love this story! There is honestly not one part I would complain about! Jax and Page are just perfect! I can't wait to listen or even read Jude!

Pinned

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is my first Lane Hart book and omg...
The book kept me on my toes not your usually romance lets fall in love and live HEA.

Page is a lawyer who is forced to be the pretty face lawyer on a case that involves cocky and sexy as hell fighter Jax.

neither likes the other on first impression and both stereotype the other which leads to this addictive rapport between them that is unexpected.

Sure the chemistry is there but could there be more?
This book caused me to LOL many times not sure if the author meant to do that but it made the book all the more enjoyable for me.

Jax and Page are a REAL couple they have the embarrassing moments and their faults which endears me to both the characters.

I have never heard any audio books by Aaron but he completely nailed this book.

Cant wait to hear Jude.

Loved this MMA fighter romance

Great characters and a fast paced plot.

I was hooked from start to end.

Looking forward to Judes story, he made me chuckle numerous times. Jax was hot and I loved the chemistry between him an Paige.

Brilliant narration that brought the characters to life.

DEFINITELY HOT & COCKY

Loved JAXson Malone. Adored his character MMA medium weight Fighter, No matter what a Manwhore he is (& I do mean he was VERY promiscuous) & how moody he was, but heck he is a very protective & loving man towards the people he loves & cares for.
Then there's fairly new attorney Page Davenport, whose father gets her to represent Jax, though she knows he wants her to fail & loose the battle to keep Jax out of prison for the allegation of 'Rape & Assault' & heck she really didn't like him at first sight. And it's here through he determination that she was going to do the BEST investigation as she can no matter what comes out of it, if he's guilty or innocent.
So we see these 2 perception of each other do a 360 turn around.
And then there's Jude Jax's younger brother welter weight MMA Fighter. He's such a sweet adorable character whom I'm looking forward to hear his story.
My 1 little downturn is that I hated where it ended, but that's just me wanting that little bit more.
REALLY RECOMMEND IT
