I really liked this book, but it really confused me. I liked the world it took place in and the people were interesting. I love reading this genre of books and usually read about vampires and shifters so reading about witches and warlocks was a nice change of pace for me. My only complaint was that this book read like it was the second in a series. So much so that I put the book down and started looking around on the author's website and on other book related websites to make sure I hadn't misse ...more

The cover didn't exactly have me enthralled and don't give much away. If I did the usual and went into my local bookstore and based my next read on the cover alone I can say straight off I would not pick this, covers are important in our decisions, and this one could have been much better.

It feels mean to give this book a one star, so I'll give it a pity two star.

The book was a slow start, then the fight scenes a little confusing. The sexual tension was good . . . at parts, then whiplashed the reader when the heroine went from blushing to vixen to blushing again. A battle boner that never dies . . .

Plus, there was a feeling that you just got dropped into book 2 of a romance series. Was there a book 1 I missed that did her older brother's story? Because this book seems to imply

I wasn’t sure what to expect from HUNTER. On the surface it had all my happy buttons pushed – witches and magic and romance. Seemed like a perfect match. And for the most part, it was. The story itself was pretty solid and I loved the way the world was set up with the different schools of witches.

I enjoyed the way the story melded two very different types of families – Tatyana’s and Dimitre’s large Russian family with Hunter’s coven family of witches. I th

4.5 out of 5 for this reader folks!

This book was somewhat of a surprise for me. I have to admit I have not read many books that center around witches as they hadn't really interested me all that much, but this book just may have changed my mind! Hunter by Jax (pseudonym of Jacquelyn Frank) was a great, quick page turning read!

Looking for a good witch story? One that battles self, family and evil? Want to share an intensity that leaves you feeling drugged after you close the book? Well look no further, Hunter by JAX aka Jacquelyn Frank has managed to put it all in one place.

The thing about Hunter is it reads like a series book but so far it remains a stand alone, I think. I started reading this book and there was this rich and complete back story. The kind you only get when you are filling in memories from a previous
Paranormal Kiss
Hunter by Jacquelyn Frank, JAX, draws you into a new and interesting world of witches, warlocks and the battle between good and evil. It is an entertaining and erotic story that holds your attention from beginning to end. The characters and backstory are richly detailed, so much so in fact, that this reads very much like a second book in a series. I really enjoyed this book and found the cast of characters to be interesting with history and depth. All of the characters feel genuine and, with the ...more
Hunter by Jacquelyn Frank aka JAX, is a stand alone book that feels like a series. The beginning starts off a little long winded in telling the back-story. I kind of felt like I was missing something, possibly a previous book, but I could not find another book. I thought that was kind of distracting and almost put the book down.
After finally getting past the back-story, this book had an interesting take on witches. I thought that the instant connection that Tatyana had with Hunter was intriguing

I like parts of it. The main characters were likable for the most part. I do not like it when rape is used in a book, and there was way too much of it happening in the histories of the characters and as a current threat. I also hate when the point of view switches to the villain, because frankly I do not want to see how horrible they are in person. When the villain is also a rapist and gloating over his activities, that just makes it worse. This book was also lousy with consent issues. All in al ...more
Paranormal Romance
After her car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, the heroine stumbles through the cold night to find her extranged brother cottage. There she meets a very usual but friendly and welcoming group of people. One of these people is the hero. Who, might I say based on the description, is just total hots. Dark hair, short but longer in the front. Tanned skin, muscle but lean body. And those eyes. The cover does it total justice with the picture of those blue eyes. Turns out that these people are wi ...more

It’s cold, freezing in face, as she only has a shawl to keep her warm. She finally makes it to the house where her brother is staying. She leans on the door to get a twig out

Another great book from Jacquelyn Frank! I normally don't read books about witches but I've read her Nightwalker series and I loved it! So I figured if anyone could get me to read about witches, it would be her!

I immediately loved the heroine, Tatyana. First, her name is just way too cool. I think that's a sexy and mysterious name! But we meet her as her car breaks down on the side of the road in the middle of the Catskills in New York and there is no cell signal and its ridiculously cold and...

When her car breaks down on a freezing New Years Eve, there is no cell phone service and she starts walking towards her destination. She practically falls into the arms of Hunter Finn.

So I was excited to see this new title with her writing it under the pseudonym Jax. I kind of have a love/hate relationship with this book. I love the world that she created.

I thought Hunter was a nice quick read. The concept was different, loved the whole white witch vs. warlocks story. The only drawback was that the story progressed slower due to all of the sex scenes and although I love Paranormal Romance novels, this just seemed a little too wordy. Don't get me wrong, I love romance novels, but I want to be able to read an actual story with it. Unfortunately with Hunter I wound up skimming through many of them just to get to the good parts.

This is an intriguing magical story that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat with intense and interesting concepts of the paranormal world of witches.

When she senses a threat to Hunter, she becomes his protection and he draws her into a dangerous world of magic, sorcery and sensuality.

I really enjoyed every second of this book. It was hot and steamy in all the right ways, and there was a great plot as well, making it a great combo of Erotica and PNR. Tatyana and Hunter were so obviously meant for each other, but it was great to see them work through their problems as a couple along with all their epic battles, reminding us that even Witches are just humans with all their foibles and dramas. The twists and turns the plot takes were intriguing and well written without being too ...more
