Jaxson Reid is your typical tattooed bad boy. His past and soul is as dark as the tattoos he bares. He flies through life and girls with no attachments and no emotions... until he met her.
One fateful night brought Julia and Jaxson together. They formed a friendship and a bond so strong it was unbreakable. Jaxson fought the temptation of anything more with Julia because he knew he would never be good enough for her. When he found his control slipping he left the one girl, who meant everything to him, to join the Navy.
But one passion-filled night has Jaxson letting go of fighting temptation which will forever alter their relationship.
A few years later Jaxson comes home to make things right with the one girl who’s ever meant anything to him. Except someone isn’t happy that Jaxson has returned. Someone who thinks Julia is theirs and they will stop at nothing to make sure it stays that way... forever.
Now Jaxson will not only fight to protect Julia but will also battle the new and existing demons that haunt his soul.

4.5 stars out of 5
Love. Love. Love this book. What a great start to a fantastic series. I'm a huge fan of uber, possessive alpha males (especially a man in a uniform!), and Jaxon Reid fits the bill. Jaxon is arrogant, loyal, protective, and sexy as heck!
Jax and Julia become best friends after he saves her one night and let me just say...I held my breath reading that part! Jax was known as the "town loser" and he never thought he was good enough for her. They continued to dance around their attraction between each other, but Jax never lets it go any further.
"Promise me you're not going to leave forever, please!..."
After deciding to get out of town, Jax joins the Navy and leaves Julia behind. Years go on and these two continue to have a hot/cold relationship and then no contact at all. Until a tragic accident happens and brings Jax back to Julia's doorsteps.
Being the possessive male he is, Jax tries to win Julia back, but years apart and a lot of hurt, he has his work cut out! Not only that, there are dangerous outside factors that prevent these two being together! I won't spoil it, but it definitely kept me turning the page, because it was a lot of action.
I'm not better than you Jaxson, I'm better with you.
