This is book 5 in the Marco's MMA Boys series and is about Jacob, Sloans brother, and Roxanne. I've loved all of the books in this series but I think this may be my favorite, It is darker than the previous books and has some situations that may cause triggers. Jacob seems quite intimidating at the start, and he is a force not to mess with when it comes to his family. Roxanne softens him a lot, but he still has an edge that makes him the perfect alpha male. Roxanne was tough, at first I wasn't su ...more

I received an ARC of this book in return for my honest opinion!

Jacob Exposed is book #5 in the Marco's MMA Boys series! I highly recommend that you start from the beginning and read each book in order. Although it is not required to understand and enjoy, I do feel that it will help you get the best experience from the series as each book builds off the last and sets the stage for future books.

Wow. Jacob turned into a very intense and hard hitting book. I am just blown away. Ms Donaldson really

If you’ve been following along with Marco’s boys, you met Jacob Foster a while back. However, we only knew him as Sloan’s brother; we had no clue what kind of life Jacob really led. Former CIA, he now works contracts undercover as needed, but he’s tired of that life. Tired of moving around, tired of not seeing his family. But when a case hits too close to home, he has no choice but to take it.

Roxanne Gilliland has worked undercover for years. Growing up the daughter of an ATF agent, she’s lived

4.5 Stars!

Marco's MMA Boys is one of my favorite fighter series out there. With each book in this series, they continue to get better and better. While this is a complete standalone within this series, I recommend reading these books in order for maximum enjoyment.

S.M. Donaldson took this book in a whole new direction for this fighting series and she did it absolutely brilliantly. Jacob Exposed was amazing. This book was sexy, sweet, suspenseful, angsty, intense, passionate, and had quite a few

Where to begin with Jacob's story? This one was action packed from the first page. Roxanne is a member of a top secret ATF team trying to take down a huge bad guy. It all goes wrong and everyone ends up gone. She leaves.

Jacob has worked for the CIA for years, covering his lies with a construction story to his family. His sister has married Lox and he decides he needs to be back closer to family. Still contracting, he is assigned a case, that has him working on the same case that changed Roxanne

I am a HUGE fan of S.M. Donaldson and I have been looking forward to Jacob and Roxanne’s book. She definitely didn’t disappoint!!!!! I was hooked from the beginning and didn’t want to put it down! I will say this book contained some scenes that I wasn’t prepared for and didn’t expect. However, those scenes helped to make this book what is it. I really enjoyed this and I think it is probably one of my favorites in the series. Both Roxanne and Jacob are bad

This one is pretty intense. I liked the characters and revisiting those MMA guys. This one is also very heartbreaking especially for Roxanne. All I can say my hearts goes out to her through out this book. I'm so glad she has Jacob and the other fighter guys in her corner. There is one part in the book that was just too intense and I had to skim it. I just couldn't bring myself to read it word for word. For me that was the only thing I didn't particularly care for in this book. I can pretty much ...more

What an amazing book! It's awesome the way Mrs. Donaldson mixed the 5 previous book to complete Jacob story. To read this book you definitely have to read the others first to understand the full lenght of the story. Jacob character was pretty good, he's smart, caring, and of cuorse gorgeous in his own way.
Raxanne character was even better, she is a strong lady like no other, she survived really awful things in her life, she lost everyone she loved because of her career choice, and at the end sh

Wow! Really loved this story, as it had me gripped from the very first page, although I must admit I was a bit apprehensive beforehand as the synopsis seemed so different to the previous books in this series. However, it really was fantastic, and I loved Jacob and Roxanne who, after everything that was thrown at her remained so positive and kick-ass.

As for the final few chapters, it was hard to read at times and had me totally on edge, but I just couldn't put it down. The ending though, was gen

Once I started this book I couldn't put it down. I rarely finish a book in one day but I had to with this book. I have been anticipating this book since I know it was comming out. It was action packed just like I expected and I loved it.
I love the mma boys and Jacob isn't the typical mma boy but he fits in with the rest of the group.
This book can be a stand alone book but if you haven't read the previous 4 books it will leave you wanting to read them.I couldn't put those books down either.

Jacob isn't one of Marcos specific boys. However, he is Sloan's brother and contract CIA agent. He moves to the same town as his sister to be close to her and his nephews. Well, Roxanne is an ex-CIA agent that had a flings years ago with Jacob. This book is dark but has to be for the lifestyle they lived as agents. It has a great ending! The book also includes the other boys and their wives and families in it. Definitely a must read!!!
