Jagger (Caldwell Brothers, #3) by MJ Fields & Chelsea Cameron

Tuesday, July 19
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Full of swagger and sensuality, the Caldwell Brothers series—perfect for fans of Katy Evans and Emma Chase—packs an emotional punch as the last bachelor standing fights for a woman who’s worth every ounce of trouble.  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.

What I loved:
- Jagger was an excellent anti-hero. He had his good moments, and a lot of bad moments, but in the end I was definitely keen for him to see his HEA.
- The family banter was great.
- The peripheral characters were really well thought out. I was even interested in Cobra... and definitely Kid! Does he get a book?

What I didn’t love:
- I'm not big on virgin stories. Maybe it's because I'm in my mid 30s, maybe it's because it's been done to death, whatever it is - it gives me the willies.
- Tatiana was raised in an abusive home for 18 years, left it and latched on to the first person who helped her. Spin that story however you want, it's not healthy.

A good read, enjoyable characters, great story, but a few too many ick moments to make it a 5 star.
