Review: Morrison & Jagger by Chelsea Camaron & MJ Fields
June 13, 2016
For Morrison Caldwell, life is a game of chance. A high roller with a legendary poker face, he’s the wild card of the family, always chasing the next thrill and never staying put for long. The one place that always lures him back is Las Vegas, with its hot tables and even hotter women. He’s perfectly content to live his life as a series of one-night stands. But when a parking lot confrontation with a cocktail waitress takes a naughty turn, she leaves Morrison aching for another round.
After a long losing streak in Sin City, Hailey Poe is ready to get lucky. A steamy tryst with a cocky, mysterious stranger is the kind of no-strings encounter she’s been craving . . . until Morrison Caldwell asks for more than she’s willing to offer. But when Hailey’s controlling, soon-to-be ex-husband tries to take her daughter away, she can’t afford to turn down a helping hand. In this winner-takes-all game, Morrison is gambling with Hailey’s life—and her heart.
Jagger Caldwell is no one’s hero. With a reputation busting heads and breaking hearts on the underground MMA circuit, he lives for easy cash and easier women. But when he stumbles upon an all-too-familiar scene, painful memories awaken Jagger’s sensitive side and compel him to act. As a kid, he stood by helplessly as his old man beat his mom. Now, Jagger won’t let seventeen-year-old Tatiana Rand suffer the same fate. Nothing matters except saving her.
Tatiana is a prisoner in her own home, at the mercy of her violent father—until an unlikely savior bursts through her door and into her life. Six-feet-plus of tattooed muscle and raw power, Jagger is no prince charming—but Tatiana stopped believing in fairy tales long ago. Despite their differences in age and, well, everything else, the sexy bad boy sparks a fire that Tatiana never knew she had—and desires that only Jagger can quench.
As always a big thank you to Random House Loveswept and Netgalley for providing us with a copy of these books so that we could bring you this review.
So I read these books one right after the other so and they go together so nicely that I thought I should write one review for both books. Let me start with how I felt about Hailey and her story. The situation she finds herself in is so heart wrenching, so be in a position where she doesn’t see a way out and wanting to get out to save her little girl from a similar fate. It is also such a great way to show that a mom is willing to go through hell for her child. Morrison is so smitten from day one is really fun, because he was always such a transient man not wanting to settle down until he has a quick encounter with Hailey. That is all it takes to change the man. I think its so cute also how he gets attached to Hailey’s little girl.
Now for Jagger and Tatiana, Jagger’s need to fight and his history as an underground fighter is something that scares Tatiana. Especially since she has had to deal with such a violent father. But Jagger shows her how gentle and how much he wants to make things better for her. The fact that she is still underage for a few more days helps him keep his hands and urges to himself. But that doesn’t mean that the sexual tension isn’t amped up because it is hot. Things happen that I don’t want to give away, but it changes Tatiana’s life and relationship with Jagger, but in a good way.
I really enjoyed both these books and wish I would have gotten a chance to read Hendrix book as well, because I think I would’ve liked that one just as much.
