Three brothers. Three Secrets. One hope to save the shifters of Seattle.
Former SEAL Jaxson River would give his life for his brothers and his pack, but if he doesn’t claim a mate soon, he’ll be forced to step down as their alpha. There’s only one problem: Jaxson’s dark secret would kill any mate he claimed. With someone kidnapping shifters off the street—and only Jaxson and his brothers, Jace and Jared, to stop them—now is not the time for his secret to come out.
Curvy Olivia Lilyfield is a half-witch orphan with a dark secret of her own. She wants to atone for it by doing good in the world, so when she finds a wolf being tortured in an alley, she doesn’t hesitate to help… even though wolves and witches mix like matches and TNT.
Olivia’s dangerous magic means she can’t let anyone get too close—but Jaxson can’t keep his hands off her, and his kisses are more than she can resist. As they race to save the disappearing shifters of Seattle, the true danger lies in loving each other. They’re playing with magical fire… and their secrets could end up destroying them both.
New Adult Paranormal Romance (BBW)
Jaxson is a complete novel with HEA, the first in the River Pack Wolves trilogy (Jace and Jared coming soon). Contains scorching shifter sex, alpha military heroes, and sexy witches. Only readers over 18 should dive into the deliciously hot world of the River brothers.
First off thanks to Alissa Woods for providing me a copy of Jaxson to read in exchange for an honest review.
My first thoughts... Holy Fireballs! It's an insta-winner for many reasons. I mean just Dayum. I loved every minute of this read. Alissa has a way of pulling you on and making you fall over yourself as you fall for her characters. I loved Olivia from the beginning. By page two I was in her corner!
What do we know? Let's see...
Jaxson is retired military, hot as sin alpha shifter
Jaxson is a Greek god that turns furry
Olivia is a bad-ass, period
Jaxson and Olivia together... Olympus has exploded from the hotness
So all in all... hot sexy shifter and a badass sexy lady that by the last page I absolutely loved. There were laughs, intense moments and yes... Tears. It's got a little bit of everything.
So... here we go...
They way Olivia and Jaxson meet in unconventional to say the least. She 'saves' him furry butt when she comes across him getting prodded in an alley. From the moment he gets a good look at the hot woman standing in that alley Jaxson feels something but he doesn't know what. When things work out that he can see her again he not only does he feel that connection more with her he offers her a job. She obviously already knows he is a shifter what's the harm, right ?
Temptation. That's the biggest day to day, well not even that lets say minute to minute challenge that Jaxson has to struggle against now. Olivia makes his wolf howl and his body hard. And after a disastrous date he comes back to the office to sort things out and she is still there fretting over the fact that she has the hots for her boss. But really can you blame her? Uh, no. Now they are both fighting the attraction they feel for different reasons. And it's only when Jace barges in to Olivia's office that things get halted. (Laughs)
There is no time for making out on the desk... there is a shifter child that's been kidnapped and now it's up to Jaxson and his merry band of wolves to go after her. Leaving Olivia to hold down the fort.
When the mission is over and they are all back safe and mostly unscaved Things between Jaxson and another shifter woman happen and it sends Olivia over the edge. That in and of itself sets off a chain reaction of emotions and actions that sets them forward a few steps in their relationship or a few steps back, depending on how you look at it. Truths come forward and it's a lot to take in. Truth is... it's a lot to take in. A lot happens to them all emotionally and physically.
No matter the missions, the family ties or the heartache that's tossed at them there is one thing that means the most. Their hearts. Both know what they want and who they want it with. They just have to overcome the obstacles that are popping up in the way. Along with keeping their heads above water. Can they do it? Or will their hopes and plans... sink?
