Jag was HJ Bellus’ second book in the Diablo’s Throne series. Diablo’s Throne was an MMA training gym.

We met Jag in book one, Cruz, and he was the gorgeous, funny and care free pseudo sibling to Layla. In Jag we find it was all a facade to hide the pain of his past; however, as the story progressed and he battled his demons, it was no longer a facade, but the real Jag and I loved everything about him. His random jokes to Sunni were awesome. And don’t get me started on his relationship with Bella
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

I truly enjoyed reading Jag. Once I began the book I had a hard time setting it down. There was a lot going on in the book but I thought the author does a job brining together all the elements. The story revolves around a MMA fighter who is estranged from his dad, MMA aspects and the Gym where they fight and train.

I love Alpha males and instant love and Jag has both. He's the dirty taking MMA fighter and falls instantly for Sunni. The author takes us on a whirlwind journey with these two. T

Man does HJ Bellus know how to pull out all the emotions in a girl. I laughed, I sobbed, I swooned, I grabbed a fan, you name it I felt it while reading Jag! I already adored Jag from reading Cruz, but now I’m completely in love with him. His story had my heart breaking then put it back together in the best way. I wish I could give this book all the stars!

Jag is this mix of intense and playful that is addictive. There is no subtle or small with this man, he’s full force all the way at all times.

High quality writing and fantastic characters make up this phenomenal book. Loved every thing about it and more. Suspense, love,fighting,secrets it has it all!! One of the best books of 2018!! Must read!

I give this book all the stars because it has all the feels. What a great story for JAG. Heidi really created a flawed, yet masterful character.
He's busted up, but wait. He isn't broken. Nope. He's tough, solid and when someone comes along carrying as much negative as he is, that is when his cracks start to seal.
"Two negatives can create a positive."
Best line EVER.
Grab a copy come release day. JAG is waiting!

I was sooo excited to read Jag!!!!

I have been patiently...well kinda waiting for Jag's book to come out. Book one is Cruz and of course book two is Jag in the Diablo's Throne duo. I feel you should read both books because you will fall in love with both of these fighters...and their bad ass/alpha ways!!!

We first met Jag in Cruz's book, he was funn and sooo lovable and sooo broken. He made for an Awesome read and he is such a bad ass MMA fighter!!! I was sucked right in when I ope

WOW! Jag! Jag! Jag!

Full of heart, desire & Fire down to his very core. I have so much love for this guy. his background story is heartbreaking until Boss comes along and makes him the man he is today.

Don’t mess with the strong Diablos family you have no chance of breaking their strong bonds blood or not they are a force not to be taken lightly.

Diablos Throne Series is a must read for all lovers of MMA romance stories.

Another gut wrenching story in this series. Just when you think it can't get any worse, HJ Bellus throws in the mother of all plot twists. My favorite line is: “Bad memories.”“I’ve got those too.” His eyes open, revealing his vibrant blue eyes filled with heat and passion. “I’ve heard two negatives end up being a positive.”

Chapter 5 and Chapter 21 is why I will ALWAYS fuck with HJ Bellus as an author. Don't get me wrong, Jag and Sunni as a couple and getting to their happy ending was phenomenal.... but, #Boss put this book over the top.

He displayed everything Jag and Sunni needed at the time where it made the best impact.
Tough Love.
A Show of family and solidarity.

If you didn't get my message on social media while I was reading then read this review carefully. The #DiablosThrone series by HJ

4.5 Stars for the second in the Diablo's Throne Series. I really thought it was going to be hard to give us another story as good as Cruz, but You get to see him in his comedic glory in Cruz, but in Jag, not only do you see the swagger, you see the heart and the shadows of where he comes from. An old foe is reborn and threatens to rip everything apart. The one thing they have going for them, this ragtag group is more a family than some that are bound by blood.

Where do I even start with this book! We all knew Jag had swagger and good looks but he also has a heart of gold. He is the perfect kind of cocky. Sunni didn't stand a chance against falling for him.
This book had several twists I never saw coming and I can't wait for everyone to get a hold of this book.

This cover was my undoing. Then I read the blurb and I was a goner. Dayum...
I knew that a book written by this lady would be freaking amazing and that was the other reason that made grab it and devour it in no time.
H. J. Bellus is the bomb. Each book that I've read made me feel things and see things differently and being the greedy girl that I am I wanted so much more. Her writing is wild and intense, super engaging with a bit of darkness and desire in between.
Jag is her latest release and it

I so love this book and Jag!! HJ couldn’t have written him to be more perfect. I love all his craziness but then you you see him starting his downfall and his vulnerability but him trying to fight to stay strong. To his finding his will again and looking at someone in a different light. To his crazy song choices that brought a smile to my face because who cannot love Spongebob Squarepants people!!!

Now I haven’t read Cruz yet, I ran out of town and now I want to read it as soon as I am able to because if it is as good as Jag was then I know I will love it. Now no worries if you are like me and haven’t read Cruz, you can read Jag as a standalone.

I really enjoyed this one from the very start. It starts with us learning about Jag’s past and let me tell you something, my heart began to break but then I got to

Jag is the second book in the Diablo’s Throne and can be read as a standalone. I would recommend reading Cruz first because the stories have interconnecting characters and it helps get the full feel of the relationships in Jag’s story.

Jag is a one of a kind guy! He knows only one speed and that is full throttle. He loves and fights in that speed, and if he is on your side than you never have to wonder if he has your back because he does. Jag has had a rough life and Boss, the o

Another great book that takes place in the MMA world. We met Jag in the book Cruz. You get to find out the heartbreaking story behind how he came to live with Boss and Layla. And it has a profound impact on him.

But everyone has demons. Jag does, and so does Sunni. Together they try to overcome them while trying to have a relationship. Life is hard all alone, but can be so much better with someone who “gets” you. Whether you like MMA or not, it is a great story that you should not miss.

This is the second book in this amazing series. Jag is a broken, fun, bad boy MMA fighter, and Sunni is a waitress, who has her own secrets. These are two broken souls who together are a perfect fit. This story is well written and emotional, humorous, and with secrets and drama. I highly recommend this authors’ work for all readers, and look forward to reading more from this talented author.

This is the second book in this series and they keep getting better and better.

Jag is riding high on his MMA career and looking to become the champ but he is always waiting for his past to come and knock it all away , He has worked hard for this and puts his all into it.
I fell in love with his man he does not do anything halfway and that includes loving Sunni , you have got to read this book to find out what all happens and I promise you won't regret it.

He will go down in history for his #cockcopter

Family isn't always blood & this book reinforces how close knit you can be without blood ties!!!

I fell in love with Cruz & Layla's story & couldn't wait to get my hands on Jag!!! He's a huge jokester & playboy. He doesn't mind laughing at himself, which really makes him even hotter.

He notices the bar maid, Sunni, who also works as a waitress at his favorite diner but for some reason he sees Sunni in a different light when he stops in for a drink or 10. He ends up drunk, not just

I have been waiting for this one. I loved Jag from the first book in this series and i fell even more in love with his character in this book. Jag is a fighter wanting to come back even better but is dealing with the demons from the past. He meets Sunni and she changes everything for him but she also has her own demons that could change everything in her life. I absolutely love the chemistry between Sunni and Jag. It is heart gripping right from the beginning all the way to the end. This was a g ...more

Omg HJ Bellus!!! I fell for Jag in Cruz and I’ve fallen even deeper for him. He’s still the Jag I fell for but I never realized everything he’d been thru.

If you were curious to see how Jag became Boss and Layla’s adopted son/brother well you’ll find out. Yup. It gutted me. I’m glad Boss stopped Jag all those years ago.

Jag hasn’t had it easy. When Boss saves him and explains to him the proper way to fight he makes a promise to Boss and himself to use his fists

I really loved the first in this series and looked forward to Jag's story and had some high expectations because its Jag and I just knew it was going to be a great story but I had to no idea that it was going to be this good. HJ Bellus exceeded my expectations with this one. This book had me in its clutches and my emotions were all over the place.

I haven't read a ton of HJ Bellus' books, and I'm kicking myself for that fact because after reading Cruz (Book 1), and now Jag (Book 2) in the Diablo's Throne series, I've found her writing style brilliant & addictive. And while I absolutely LOVED Cruz, Jag topped that one if possible. How he met Sunni had me rolling in laughter, even though the reasons for him being so wasted was heartbreaking, and that set the tone for Jag's personality throughout this book.

Geeze, I thought I loved Cruz and Layla' s book, then I read this one and it has me in TKO mode. So so good!

Jag is what I remember from book one and so much more. Hyped up, silly as fudge, libido like a jack rabbit. We get to see what he's all about, his backstory is gut wrenching, but makes you appreciate Boss that much more! Then we get a new player in town. Sunni. She's sweet, a little bit skittish, you know she's hiding from something, or someone, but when everything comes out, it was defin
