Review ~ JAX by Cristin Harber

Jax (Titan, #11)
by: Cristin Harber
Series: Titan
Genre: Military Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 10, 2017
Publisher: Mill Creek Press

Seven is an enigma. A motorcycle club princess. The daughter of a notorious gangster. The best friend of the deputy mayor. A coffee shop owner. The single mom of two young, adopted children. She’s colorful, in every way possible—from her attitude to her piercings and bright pink hair—and she’s a woman on a mission with the power to help broker a clean break between a powerful motorcycle club and a South American drug cartel. But not all players are ready for the game to change, including the ones she can’t see like the CIA.

Jax Michaelson has a bad attitude and a good shot. The former Navy SEAL has been on Titan’s problem list for running his mouth since the day he showed up for work, but he does a hell of a job, and they’d never let him go. Call him cocky, that’s fine, because then you’d have to admit he’s the best at anything and everything—except diplomacy.

When Titan is forced into the seedy drug world filled with cartel glitz and Harley-riding MCs, Seven and her family become an unexpected bargaining chip right after she and Jax find a way to stand each other—in bed.

Will friends become lovers? Or are they too far gone to be opposites that attract? Is Jax nothing but a bad boy who leaves her hoping for a military hero when the burden of living as Mayhem royalty backfires and her children disappear.

Jax is the latest book in Cristin Harber’s Titan Series.  There are a lot of books in this series and there is a connection between them all that strengthens the overall message about family, friends, and loyalty.  I have read most of the books in the series so I believe that they can be read as standalones although you would feel more of a connection if you read them all in order.  The world within Titan is very intriguing and every book focuses on a different Titan operative along with their future lover.

In this installment, Jax Michaelson is tasked with helping to broker a transition away from the drug trade for a motorcycle gang named Mayhem that distributes drugs for some unrelenting Colombians.  As if that wasn’t complicated enough, Jax ends up falling for Mayhem’s princess, Seven Blackburn.  Both Jax and Seven have a bunch of emotional baggage that affect their decisions both good and bad.  They are very good together both in between and outside of the sheets.  Of course, their relationship becomes complicated when it becomes clear that the Colombians will do whatever is necessary to prevent Mayhem from getting out of the drug trade.  There is a lot of action that is the mainstay of all TItan books. And the other mainstay is teamwork and family.  For as much as Titan is a bunch of military veterans, they are loyal to each other and have each other’s backs.

I don’t want to give too much away so I will simply say that the Colombians make a move that forces Titan into action.  And when this happens, Titan will bring all hands on deck in dramatic fashion and it’s awesome.  For all of the books that I have read, I believe that this one is the best one yet.
