    The second book in Jax Garren┬┐s Tales of the Underlight Series b

    The second book in Jax Garren’s Tales of the Underlight Series brings us back together with Hauk & Jolie pretending that there is nothing more between them then friendship.  But after a scorching hot kiss between them in the work out room the door to more is finally open.  But who is going to take that first step in.  
    Just when things look like they are finally going to go right for Hauk & Jolie in walks Hauk’s old high school flame.  But the real question is who is this old girlfriend and what does she really want with Hauk. 

    Oh my goodness these two are killing me.  I just wanted to grab them throw them into a room and lock the door.  Hauk & Jolie are perfect for eachother and I so can’t wait to see what Jax has in store for them in the next book in this series.  This was another great story from Jax.  

    I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

    I am so happy that they are finally getting their stuff together

    I am so happy that they are finally getting their stuff together! Well, sort of. Jolie and Hauk are attracted to one another and they finally start to realize it! But this book is more than your typical beauty falls for the beast. This book starts off with an explosion, and grabs your attention from that moment forward. Throw in a past love of Hauk’s and you have one feisty Jolie. I will state that there are some moments when I was a little confused because the magic and mythological elements aren’t explained very well, but you tend to get the jist of it. I also found myself forgetting who some people were, but after a while I began to remember, however it was a little confusing until then. I have to admit that like Jolie I have completely forgotten about how Hauk “looks” and have simply fallen for him, even when he is ‘beasted’ out and carrying her home. There are some aspects of Jolie that I still don’t like. Although she doesn’t seem to care about her wealthy background is has unknowingly affected her, and she sometimes tends to act like a brat. There is also a take-charge attitude that she has gained in this novel that I found I really liked as a development. I also liked the fact that Jolie was more of the hero is this novel. Girl-power…what can I say? But, I do also miss the type of action that we had from Hauk in the first novel. It’s going to be very interesting to see how these two form a relationship in the world and circumstances that they live in.


    Hauk—in my opinion…sexy.

    Jolie—She is changing and becoming more of a tough woman that is willing to take what she wants.


    Some moments and some parts were a little confusing. Science Fiction is not generally my genre of reading so when I read about being brain-washed via a tattoo I get a little sceptical. There also some things, like how Hauk had the tattoo prior to the fire, that I didn’t really understand. Like how he got it. That kind of stuff. It almost felt like it was added in to help explain instead of being apart of the overall plot.

    Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):

    Overall I find the series is coming along very well. I like the chemistry between the characters, and how to plot is starting to develop. I found that it was fairly easy to follow, although sometimes I did have to re-read parks to make sure I understood. I had some confusion about the characters and generally when starting a new novel in a series authors give a short re-cap, which would have been helpful. The story line got a little confusing in this novel, but it feels like its developing and hopefully more will be revealed in the next book. Jax Garren takes you on a romantic, girl-power filled adventure in How Beauty Saved the Beast that leaves you with the promise of something so much more wonderful in the next book
