We first met Jax and Sarai in the book The Price of Pleasure. This picks up where that left off and we finally get to find out what happens between the two. Jax knew the minute he saw Sarai that she was his lifemate, but Sarai had been hurt, as well as her children, by her first husband. Determined to let no man control or hurt her again, she puts up formidable roadblocks to a relationship. With patience and passion Jax breaks down her barriers, and shows her that all men are not prone to violence. Even though he is a soldier, which is a major turn-off for Sarai, he shows her how much more he is. And how much he loves her.
This was a touching story that brought forth more than passion and sex between two people. Dynamics between Jax and Sarai’s children were at the forefront, as they should be. He can desire the mother, but must win over the children. And he does that admirably and honorably. The reactions of Sarai and her children to what would normally have been physical confrontations for them were sad, but understandable. Jax was desirable in more ways than one.
