Waiting patiently for book #2!!
I received an ARC of this from the author in exchange for an honest review. When I read the synopsis I thought that it sounded like an intriguing story and it definitely is. This is also a real page turner as I read it in less then 24 hours.

I really enjoyed this story. Jaxon is a sexy alpha male that doesn't have to be bossy all the time to get his way which is different than some of the stories that I've been reading which is a nice change. Kate is a str

OK so since I am married to K.C. Michaels I felt an obligation to read her book, to be honest I am not a big reader of this style book, but to support my wife I read this entire book. One of the very few books of this type if any I have actually read. Most of my reading is geared to self help and positive thinking. Saying that I did feel connected to the story and the characters in this book, as I read more and more I did want to continue to see what happens, I like the fact its not all sex and ...more

First off I would like to thanks K.C. Michaels for sending me her book :)

Introducing Kate Sims and Jaxon Remington. Kate is an intelligent and successful Doctor working out of Manhattan's William Henry Hospital. Well liked and respected among her colleagues, her life outside of work is drab & dismal. She has one best friend Jade and absolutely no love life what so ever. Enter Jaxon Remington- a multi millionaire business owner who shows up in Kate's emergency department requiring

First, I would like to thank the author for sending me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. That being said, I loved it! It only hints at being "Fifty Shades of Grey", but was much better written and not so over the top. There is an actual story to this book with the sex being secondary and pretty tame. The threat to Kate's life and her relationship with Jaxon keeps the reader interested to the very end.

Dr. Kate Sims is portrayed as strong and intelligent most o
Dark and dangerous, Jaxon Remington is more than just that. There is the tinge of insecurity behind that tough exterior making him relatable and likable. Dr Katherine Sims on the other hand is the total opposite of him. Although giving a feeling of naivety and innocence, she is one woman who knows what she wants and goes after it. The story is well woven but jumpy at times. I do feel that Jaxon seems unsure of what he really wants with Kate, as he is bouncing back and forth with his decision but ...more

The Jaxon Effect was amazing. I loved every minute of it and found it very hard to finish that last chapter because I did not want it to end. I am so looking forward to her next book and to see how the story unfolds with the characters. I personally think that this is the type of book that could definitely be made into a movie at some point. Jaxon is very sexy and although he seems to have that tough side to him he is very gentle. And Kate is so fragile but yet so strong at the same time. I woul ...more

I just received this book yesterday and I finished it in one day. I literally could not put it down. K.C. pulls you in and makes you yearn for more. Her descriptive style allows the reader to be transported to another world, where the passion swirls around you. A definite must read!!

Bloody cliffhangers!

Jaxon and Kate share one thing in common, deeply traumatic incidences in their pasts that affect how they interact with each other in the present and throughout the novella.

Drop dead hunk Jaxon’s a control freak, a ‘one hit’ man who vowed never to let another woman get too close. One night was all he had to offer. That is until Kate. He warns her of course, but then admirably proceeds to smash his own rules to pieces all the while playing th

I read the book from cover to cover with in 12 hours. I loved this book, can't wait until # 2 comes out! Please tell me i won't have to wait long!!!!!
I never used to read alto until a few year ago when i discovered that by reading it would help me control my chronic back pain from a home invasion and was thrown down my basement stairs protecting my children.
Reading helps control my chronic pain like as in this case when the story is great u can't put it down and by doing that really helps

So this was another freebie and I really wasn't sure what to expect...I was thinking at first that it was going to be another FSOG knock off. I couldn't have been more wrong. It's a little dark and gritty at times but completely sexy and I couldn't put it down. Of course I'm a little put off by the fact that I have to wait for the next book. I usually wait until a series is complete because I lose interest easily but overall, I have no complaints. I hope we get to see more of Jaxon' s alpha male ...more

I loved this book, I didn't want to put it down i had it finished in a day, its well written and given just enough excitement that it's not too much but enough to keep you from wanting to stop reading. The cliff hanger in the end is going to drive me crazy until the next book
Totally recommend

I really liked this one. I like the different spin on Jaxon. I will admit there were some similarities to FSOG but it still had its own special twist. Can't wait to read part 2 hopefully it will be out soon.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

this book was packed!!!
...a dark, tall and handsome Alpha male, who had more than his fair share of catastrophic life events...a young doctor, determined to lose her virginity...and the ex of her best friend gone wild!!!
So why 2 stars from me?
I could not understand what was so special about Kate that Jaxon was tempted to break his rule of no-commitments. OK, she came across as a credible person, but why her when y

Yummy Jaxon

I really enjoyed the story however I must say at 50% the excitement kinda waned. It started off freaking hilarious and sizzling. I laughed out loud and was grinning like it was me (as the heroine) but then....

Overall I loved the story and will reread because there were certain parts that I'm in love with.
