When he stared into Kim's blue eyes for the first time, he knew she would mean the end of him.

She was the only one he ever wanted, but could never have. He knew it was too dangerous for him to lose his heart, yet he gave it to her anyway.

But Jax Buchanan screwed up, and now it's up to him to save her, to take back what has been taken away from him.

How will he get her back

*May contain spoilers *
We are finally getting brother Jax' story and wow what a story. Book 2 left us off with Kim and Jax having feelings towards each other but Levi warned his brother Jax to back off.

While at a nightclub, the mafia has taken Kim or should we say the man who Jax works / worked for? Jax will do whatever it takes to get this fiery red

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Having read the ending to Lexi and Levi's story in Resplendent Rush, I was left pulling my hair out in frustration to read Kim and Jax's story in Resplendent Rage. I just HAD to know what happens with their undeniable attraction but also if Kim is rescued from her demented abductor. Bella J has drawn me into this world, locked me in, and thrown away the key. She has become a captor of not only my imagination but also my heart. I have become atta

well since I marked this as I'm currently reading and was side tracked by kids and school projects.. I've decided to restart the day this was started, as I don't want y'all thinking I wasn't enjoying, when really the case was my kids came first. ;) Diving in let's see how much sleep I get..

Man that was a ride! While this book is much dark than Respledent Ruin and Rush, the hot steaminess is still exquisitely high.

What a crazy, suspenseful ride this book was. Resplendent Rage, book 3 in the Resplendence series, is jam-packed with explosive suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat and passionate romance that will have you craving more. The story begins right where book 2 of the series left off, with Kim at the hands of a ruthless criminal and Jax desperate to save the woman who managed to captivate him in a short period of time. With Jax's employer pulling the strings and the odds stacked again ...more

Pain is felt in many different ways…

I was really looking forward to this third book of the series and my expectations were met at every turn! Each book has centered around one couple, but it really feels like an ensemble cast as the secondary characters play such a huge part. I didn’t even want to type secondary actually, with family and friends deep in the fray when things get crazy. And they do get crazy. Dangerously so…

Jax is tough but he’s had to make decisions in his life that have bothered

Another great story

I love this series and I think Red and Jax's story was my favorite of the 3 not sure what happen with Reed and we will probably never know but I really enjoyed this series.

This is the third book in the Resplendence series and this series just keeps on getting better! I am officially hooked on this series and really want there to be another book that I can jump into right now, but there’s not so I guess I’ll have to patiently wait for the next one to release so I can get my fix. The Resplendence series has been my first experience reading this author and I have definitely not been disappointed in any way. I strongly advise starting with book one and working your wa ...more

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third book in the Resplendent Series by Bella J. This book can be read as a standalone but I so recommend reading Resplendent Ruin and Resplendent Rush first. Each book revolves around a different couple with all the characters appearing in each book. You don't want to miss a second of this series

Wow, another fantastic read from Bella J. I just love this series. Even more so because each book is very different from the last. This was a very intense romantic suspense novel. Extremely well written. It had me on the edge of my seat.
Jax Buchanan introduced in Levi and Lexi's story, did not walk away from Kim, Lexi's best friend, fast enough. Baptiste, the human trafficker, drug and arms dealer, all round scum of the earth caught sight of her and she has been kidnapped.

Kim and Jax’s story starts where book two left off on that big ‘ol cliffy. In this book the plot gets dark and has a very different feel from where the series started in book one. I really liked this book but when the plot starts to get darker it feels like the author is holding back, like she starts to go there but then doesn’t or it’s just a tease of the darkness’ potential. I wanted it to go another level deeper into the mind games, torture and despair that Kim goes through while in captivity ...more

Bella J is becoming a fast favourite of mine, her words literally drag me in and I'm always left craving more of her work.

We met Jax in RRush and I felt a bit sorry for him to be honest. The Chemistry even then between him and Kim was apparent and I was left looking forward to their story.

Jax has lived a hard life and just wants to be free of his past and his bad decisions, he wants just a normal life and then he meets Kim and tries not to want her, but he fails. Kim is a strong woman and I've

The final book in the series and this is Jax's story, the bad sheep of the family.
Another well written faced paced book that grabs you and doesn't let you go.
This book is full of suspense twists and turns you're not expecting and of course the hot alpha males. Darker than the previous books it's a great end to a fabulous series. 5* Hot Stars.

A psychologically thrilling and engrossing book that is also a dark romance. I was riveted into place and captivated by this book. Embrace the darkness and fall in love.

Guilt has never been written so romantically. Dramatically cohesive and breathtakingly beautiful. The back and forth between the past and present times was enlightening to see how the relationship began.

I will start by saying I loved this book, this is my favorite in the series, Why? Because it was much darker then the other 2.

Jax's and Kim's story is told by the author in the past before the kidnapping and after the kidnapping I love how she was able to do that and show us their relationship through time. They have an electrifying sexy relationship and I was cheering them on throughout the book.

To say I loved reading this book is putting it mildly!! This book pulled emotions out of me that sent me on a ride I never wanted to end!! It has love and laughter and suspense and disgust and yes even rage!! Start this book early because you won't want to put it down!! It's 3am and I'm upset there isn't more to read. There may be an HEA but you are dragged through the trenches to get there and it still doesn't feel like enough!!! If you've read the first two books you don't need me to recommend ...more

I had been waiting for this installment! I wanted to start it as soon as I saw it pop up on my kindle but being the book whore that I am, my schedule didn't allow for it. When I was able to get to it, I devoured it!
Jax is my favorite! He totally redeems himself from the jerk I thought he was when we were introduced to him in RR2.
I love Kim. She is a spit fire! I love her feistiness.
