Rowan and her twin brother, Tyson grew up with an emotionally and verbally abusive mother who drilled into them daily that they weren’t worthy of love.
Jax, a MMA fighter/gym owner, is leaving the ER after getting stitches when he sees Rowan in the waiting room in labor. Jax stays with Rowan through the delivery and when she’s released from the hospital.
Rowan was a troubled soul but she wasn’t whiny or overly melodramatic. Overall, a strong-willed and likable character. Jax has his own family drama with his father but he’s done his best to overcome it and not let it hold him back.
From the beginning Jax is book boyfriend perfection. He’s a alpha-male to the core but Jax has a heart of gold. Even when Rowan sends him away, he still watches over and takes care of her and her daughter from afar.
Fighting Envy was a sweet and sexy story. Jax’s friends add a healthy dose of levity and humor to the story and I look forward to their books. I still had some questions at the end, particularly how things will come to a head with Jax’s father and his friend Cole, but overall a good, low angst read. Lastly, I wished there was an epilogue but the next installment will be Tyson’s story, so I hope we’ll get some updates on Jax and Rowan there.
