    DNF 54% I just couldn't take to Sadie and Jude. more so Sadie .... SPOILER I got to 54% where she was going to get naked and have sex with a guy just to get over jude. call me a prude but she didn't like the guy she was going to sleep with. I prefer my heroines a little less tacky and more clean. so this book just didn't work for me.

Works at her father's gym. Has had a crush on Jude for years. Unassuming, awkward, geeky tomboy. Glasses, brown frizzy hair, green eyes, wears baggy clothes. "She's no different than one of the guys. Actually she’s more like a constant stationary object, a piece of exercise equipment always in the building." ♦️PLOT: After Sadie's jerky boyfriend breaks up with her right before prom, her father, Jude's coach dupes him into taking her in return for giving him a championship fight.

Something happened in Jude's book and he wasn't the same outgoing, confident character. He actually bugged me in this book so much it was difficult to finish it. What really annoyed me was Sadie. She was young, immature and a slut. Jude saved himself for someone worth giving his virginity and she was NOT worth the wait in my opinion. I found it very difficult to like her character. She made very stupid decisions before her relationship with Jude, during and after. It goes back to her being immature. I never felt the connection between the two of them anytime during the book. It moved way to fast, Sadie has had a crush on Jude for years but he never noticed her until her make over. Then he could keep his cock in his pants to actually get to know her on a more intellectual level. There entire relationship was based on sex. I did like Linc in this book so I am hoping, fingers crossed Lane Hart knocks his book out of the park. I will read Linc.

Eventually he agrees, on the night of the prom he arrives at the house to pick up Sadie and is blown away by how she looks, a complete transformation from how she dresses when she's at her fathers gym. It's not long before they're getting hot and heavy. But what happens when Sadie finds out that he did a deal with her father to get a shot at the championship in exchange for going with her to prom. This wasn't a patch on the first book "Jax" the plot was no way as good. I really liked Jude even though he made mistakes, but Sadie I didn't like her one bit. She was a totally different character to how she was in the first book, she went from a frizzy haired bespectacled geek to slut, I thought most of her actions crossed the line IMO and she's not the sort of heroine I like to read about.

    OMG! When I read JAX I thought it was good but this addition to the series is over the top! Not only did we get to know Jude so much better we also got to know more about Jude's brother Jax and the things that happened in their past. Ms. Hart did an amazing job at building the story and further developing Jax's character but also adding to the story by showing us about the love and bonds formed between the Malone's and Coach Briggs and his daughter Sadie. She did an amazing job not only adding OMG! When I read JAX I thought it was good but this addition to the series is over the top! Not only did we get to know Jude so much better we also got to know more about Jude's brother Jax and the things that happened in their past. Ms. Hart did an amazing job at building the story and further developing Jax's character but also adding to the story by showing us about the love and bonds formed between the Malone's and Coach Briggs and his daughter Sadie. She did an amazing job not only adding Jude, the Brigg's and their story but also building more on Jax and Page's life along with their baby boy, Xavier. She has taken the two books, and has sown them together with such precision that the story is virtually seamless. The flow of the story has the fluidity of a calmly flowing stream. I really must add that not only does Ms. Hart do a great job portraying the love between family, she shows us the inside of the MMA world. People think that it's about 2 opponents that get into an octagon and beat each other too a pulp. It's about 2 athlete's, professionals that get into an octagon and fight, but these athlete's have the utmost respect not only for each other, but for the sport also. Yes, they are opponents but they are also a part of something so much bigger! The MMA world in itself is like a huge family. The true "members" of this sport, spend hours, months, years even, training and working to perfect their technique and skills. They know how hard each works to achieve this which results in that respect they have for each other. And Ms. Hart does an amazing job showing that in the telling of the story of these 2 brothers. I am so looking forward to seeing where she is going to take us with Linc's story. Just imagine the drive, the love, the passion these guys have for life and for this sport, now imagine that same passion in the bedroom! Oh yes! Smoking hot! Bring on Linc's story Ms. Hart!

    Where to start with this book? I honestly didn't think the author could beat Jax but with Jude she really has outdone herself. Jude is just perfect. Yes he's young but oh sweet lord is he hot. Living under Jax's shadow all his life, now is the time for Jude to show the world what he's made of. When his Coach approaches him with the fight of a lifetime in exchange for a favour, Jude jumps at the chance. I loved the Coach. He's is so manipulative (in a good way) it's brilliant.

Sadie, the coach's daughter, has had a crush on Jude for forever. Having been screwed over by her ex, she's desperately hoping that Jude will finally notice her. The sexual chemistry between Jude and Sadie is scorching hot, but the connection between them is really sweet at the same time. This book really does have it all. It's a really sweet, hot romance with some cracking one liners (Oh hell, smack my arse and call me a naughty boy because I'm dying to fall to my knees and beg for a f*cking taste). It was just one of those books for me that I absolutely loved. The characters are more than just characters in a book. The way it's written it feels like they're real people (yes I'm aware I need to get a life). It draws you in with the likeable characters and leaves you wishing it didn't have to end. Now the wait begins for Linc's book....it's gonna be so good if Jax and Jude are anything to go by.

    Another fantastic read I just knew after reading Jackson's book that Judes story would be a sweet read. I was not disappointed. I got the book delivered while I was away at a horse show and was to engrossed I almost missed my class! One click this one for sure. Can wait for Linc story.

    I absolutely loved Jude in Jax's story and couldn't wait to read Jude's own story. Jude is the younger brother of the almighty MMA titleholder Jax and they are two complete opposites. Where Jax was hot-headed Jax is complete calm, still, a virgin saving himself for that special lady and he's a fun guy, he made me laugh in the previous book with his cocky charm. Jude is also a fighter and looks up to his big brother and fights in a lower weight.

Where Jax was hot-headed Jax is complete calm, still, a virgin saving himself for that special lady and he's a fun guy, he made me laugh in the previous book with his cocky charm. Jude is also a fighter and looks up to his big brother and fights in a lower weight. When his coach approaches him with the fight that could make his career it comes with a bargaining chip which is the coaches daughter Sadie. Coach Briggs trusts Jude and wants Jude to take his daughter the her senior year prom in return he will arrange the fight. Sadie is the geeky daughter of Coach Briggs, brought up by a single dad and has spent all her life in the gym surrounded by the guys who treat her like a younger sister. Sadie came across as innocent in the first book and she had always admired Jude from afar, however, Sadie didn't quite turn out to be the character I anticipated and Sadie wasn't as sweet as she seemed. A makeover boosts Sadie's confidence, guys all of a sudden start to notice her including Jude when he takes her to prom he becomes possessive and protective of her. For the first time ever Jude feels he has found someone he actually wants to give his virginity too. A secret relationship develops between the two as they try and keep it away from the gym and Coach Briggs. A SORRY SPOILER Halfway through this book though I was like "What NOOOOOOO" what are you doing you stupid girl and after that, I just could not warm to Sadie. There's making your partner jealous to get what you want but actually doing it? no, just no, I could not get my head away from what she had done to sweet Jude after that. Despite the huge dilemma, I faced while reading, I did enjoy this book. Jude is adorable and the build-up to his fight, the introduction of other characters and the flow of the book I loved and I would definitely read more books from this author.

    I have to say, after really enjoying the first book in this series, I was very eager to read this story. Thankfully, it didn't disappoint! This romance was rather sweet, overall, thought I did find the characters a bit young to be talking this seriously about "forever". That youth hampers the story to a slight degree, as they fly off the handle about perceived slights. I loved Jude, though, as he was a perfect Alpha hero.

This is the second book of hers that I've read/listened to (second MMA book too) and I'm definitely going to be reading more of her work. But damn her! I just spent at least an hour watching YouTube vids of The Beatles. Hey Jude has been one of my favorite songs since I was like two and you can't end a book like that and not expect me to start singing it. We first met Jude in book 1 of the Cocky Cage Fighter series, JAX. I couldn't help but adore him when I read about him. He was such a fun guy. In JUDE we learn more about him and though he's still a fun guy his immaturity is readily apparent. Which was good in a way. I mean, he's only 21 and Hart did a bang up job portraying the different characteristics of a male that age in his profession. He felt really authentic, ya know? About the narrator... So I have mixed feelings about the narrator. I was originally thinking that I would generously give him a 3.5 but with the way he did the last few lines of the book I had to bump his rating to a 4. He clearly put a lot of effort into his performance but it didn't quite hit the mark for me. His acting was enthusiastic yet off and IMO his pacing wasn't very good. I love it when the narrator uses different voices for the characters and he performed the book that way. I think he did a great job of portraying a somewhat shy teenage girl. Favorite Quotes This is between Sadie and her bestie. So yeah they're teenagers but I can't disagree with their strategy for keeping sex and emotion separate. And it was a smile worthy comment to boot. "If you're just fucking then he shouldn't get to sleep with you. That's what people in relationships do." "I've told him he can't kiss me." "Good for you, Julia Roberts. Draw the lines in the sand and then sit back and watch him lose his sh*t until he crosses them." This is between Jude and Jax. Love how Hart used lyrics from the song to verge into a tender moment. "I've lost the will to live," I joke but can't make myself smile even if my life depended on it. "Oh stop being so goddamn dramatic, you pussy. It's time to man. The fuck. Up. Hey Jude, don’t let me down. You have found her, now go and get her."

    In fairness to the author, I am sure there are many people who will enjoy this young romance/guilty pleasure read. So I don’t wish to dissuade readers. In addition, I’m 45 years old and though I don’t mind reading stories of young love and even enjoy it, there is only so much you can forgive of the naivety and illogical behavior.

So despite the love story being sweet, I found myself sighing and wanting to smack them far to often for it to be enjoyable to me. There was also so many things that would never happen. Ie, the police and phones. I’d like to see what happens to the other characters because they are lovable, but based on the first two I feel my frustration will outweigh my curiosity. So that’s it for now. 1.5 Just barely ok for me stars

    Lane Hart has done it once again andI love this book just as much as I loved the first book in this series! I love these brothers! I swear they are going cause me to need therapy due to the emotional roller coasters they continue to keep me on. I absolutely love Jude's innocence laced with his cockiness. I love how his character was real with his concern and emotions. Sadie...I loved to hate her.

I hated her because of her immaturity and felt that she didn't really deserve a guy like Jude, but the realism of her character was that she was indeed a teenager and behaved like on. At some parts of the book I hated her so much that I wanted to stop reading but I am reply happy that I didn't. All of this is a testament to how good of a book this is because of how caught in the characters and love or hate them like they are real people. In the end I forgave Sadie and fell in love with the new hottie, Linc! I can't wait for his story!

I laughed and sniffled and even found myself cheering during the fight scenes. I absolutely loved that Jude was still a big V. Ya just don't hear of that happening anymore.

    I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This one is just as good as Jax, if not better, it's hard to decide. I can't wait to read Linc, I've grown to really like him in this book and I want to see how his story ends.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. There was a freaking lot of sexy time in it, which I enjoyed that too. The underlying premise of a virgin male character being interested in his coach's teenager daughter was refreshing. I would have rated this a bit higher but I did not like how much "slut" and "sex" was thrown around by both Sadie and Judge. It might have been in context but also make it seem like it was just meaningless, which again is not bad at all, but it seemed to stand out a bit. Still I really enjoyed reading this book.

Still a great read and I will definitely be checking out the others in the series!

Placing my arm back of his neck, his fingers trail slowly down underside of my arm to my side, Johnny Castle style, causing goosebumps form and shudder run through my body. Now I know why Baby couldn't hold still. After that signature move, crowd floor with us cheers with approval..We move against each together beat. Feeling his big, muscular frame molded against my backside and surrounding me ignite furnace in my lower body. By end next song, his hard length presses firmly against my bottom.

"For 1ST Jax's gorgeous face looks like he's been in fight. Go easier on him next time." I nod "I swear I didn't tell him,""I know." I find my nephew and give him plane ride around house, chasing Boo while we wait for food. Xavier named dog using word from his limited vocabulary. It was either Boo or Poo, Page deemed it former. The whole time we play Jax refuses speak to me. "All right, guys, dinner's ready," Page calls I put Xavier his high chair before fixing plate. "So, Jax, didn't you want to apologize to Jude?" Page asks "No.""Jax! He's just pissed because I took your side on this instead of his." "Go ahead, get it out of your system," I tell him. "What's your problem, Jax?" "She's really young-" I cringemeant imply I've made same mistake as our mother. "She's 18!" I yell. The little guy jumped I reach over ruffle his tiny jet black faux hawk. "Sorry, X man”"3 or 4 years is not that big age difference. Elliot 7 years older than me,""That's not helping,""And she's Coach’s daughter. He'd kill you-""That's why you better keep your mouth shut,""Remember time screwing your attorney and you yelled at me keep it a secret? Well, now it's your turn.""I won't say anything, but you need tell him truth,"No.""Honestly, Jax, you should be happy for your brother," Page tells him. "He finally found girl to give his innocence, too.""He shouldn't have taken hers,""I didn't, not that it's any of your business.""Oh "Well, that does makes me feel better." "She's not little girl. I know what you think about her, because it's same thing I thought until Saturday night." "Is she leaving for college August? "I don't know. Probably." And fuck if that doesn't blow. "What happens then?""I don't know. "I just don't want you to get hurt," she says "You're afraid 18 year-old girl will break his heart?" Jax laughs. Page throws roll nearly hitting him in face. Xavier giggles then starts throwing pieces of his food at all of us. The puppy dances around his highchair, making out like bandit "Nice, Page. Like he needed any help being messier," Jax grumbles. "Lighten up, grouch. I think you're just mad that Jude beat you today." "Twice,""He lucked up.""Both times? “Bullshit." "Jude is a man now, honey-" Page starts. "Hey!" "Maybe that's it," Jax agrees "I know I fight better after a few good fu-""Really? "You always said women were distraction, but for me I need blow my load-" "Jax!" Page grabs up Xavier "It improves my reflexes. I react quicker without thinking about next move." "So you're saying I've lost fights because I've been...wound too tight?" "Fighting and fucking are both about instincts. Primal urges men do without thinking. Maybe it's like this, after we fuck a woman, fight subconscious level isn't just about us anymore but it's about providing protection. Fighting for someone other than ourselves better motivator kick someone else's ass.""Like when I socked you jaw after you insulted Sadie?""Exactly.""Fine. I'm sorry about shit I said." "I accept your reluctant apology." "I still think you're jackass," I learned from the best. You up for rematch tomorrow?" "Hell yes, and this time you're going down."

JUDE HEARS SHE KNOWS JEALOUS He probably has no idea I've been crushing on him since 1st time I saw him. He was only 15 when he and Jax started training with my dad.

She gave birth to me, which extent her motherly duties. There's also unopened envelope my dresser came in today's mail, just like I've gotten my birthday past 19 years. My dad knows but made sure Jax doesn't find out. I've never opened any of them becausewoman hasn't ever sent him single card on his birthday or any other holiday. What a bitch. JUDE TELLS STORY ABOUT MOM. Your parents divorced few years ago, right?""Yeah and I have no idea why. My mom just didn't want be with dad anymore. She moved out and didn't want me go with her, so I stayed with him until we moved here.""I visit her few times a year. I just...she's always busy doing her own thing.

"Give me your fucking phone," "We don't have search warrant," cop says, "Give me. The fucking. Phone!" I yell, I go chat logs and pull up conversation with Sadie. Her last text said she was on her way. 30 minutes ago "Has Sadie been here?""Not yet.""Oh look, I found phone you put in evidence,""The blackmail laid out in texts. Where's the video?""On the phone."

Three more phones give cops. I don’t want see damn video, because if I do… "If she shows up call down front desk and tell them, got it?" I go front desk ask anyone Sadie come in, she watched enter front lobby doors. I yank open door sitting on 1st step.

The first time she did what she did during their break up, I was willing to forgive her although it also pissed me off.but when she finds out about what her dad and the H did, the way she acted was ridiculous. I can understand she was mad but to go and do what she did with Jude's opponent?!?!? That's just being a straight up bitch. Why would she go to Linc's hotel room, a man she doesn't know from adam, and tell Jude she slept with him? And then she doesn't even let Jude explain and LEAVES THE STATE to go live with Linc, a man SHES LITERALLY KNOWN FOR A DAY! And the best part is, even though Linc has a huge house with multiple bedroom, she sleeps in the same bed with him!! But it totally ok because there isn't anything sexual about it....not! Did Sadie think it meant nothing that Jude gave his virginity to her after waiting for 22 years? Did she really think he would've done that just because her dad asked him to take her to prom? The icing on the cake that made me really dnf was the fact that even after Jude shows up and is staying at Linc's house, she was still going to sleep in Linc's bed! Like, why?? We also come to find out that Sadie and Linc kissed, BUT IT OK BECAUSE IT WAS LIKE KISSING A SIBLING!!!! I'm sorry, I don't like to slut shame, but Sadie was a slut. I hate hate hated her. I just do not understand. I have never dnf'd a book this far in but I guess that will tell you how much I hated that heroine. I know this is really long so, rant over. I'm getting mad just thinking about it all over again lol

    I didn't think the series could get better that Jax, book one of Cocky Cage Fighter. I was so wrong. Jude may be the baby brother, but the book is not just an equal but better. I usually don't read books with high school characters, it is like spying on the grandkids. Jude was worth breaking the rule. At 22, he is still so young in experience. He is so clueless in relationships. He only knows how to eat, train, sleep and repeat. That is until he is conned into taking Sadie, coach's daughter, to I didn't think the series could get better that Jax, book one of Cocky Cage Fighter. I was so wrong.

That is until he is conned into taking Sadie, coach's daughter, to the prom. The dork, becomes a queen and Jude is lost in her. This is the story of Jude's conflict--does he tell her about the deal with the coach? Does he think she won't find out?? Does he wait for the right time, that never may come???? Does he break it off before it is too late? In the end what mattered is how Sadie found out and what occurred afterwards. I can't believe I cried during an MMA fighter book. Alpha male--yes, awesome bodies--yes. Romance--yes When all are put together they have the making of a good story. It was Jude's devastation that ripped at my heart. It was Jude's inter-turmoil that kept me reading when chores needed to be done. In the pages of a good book I watched Jude mature and become a good man. I watched love actually save the day. Sometimes the greatest reward isn't a championship belt, but the girl's forgiveness.

    MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS - What I loved about brother Jude from the first book was that he was very funny, light hearted, a sweet virgin who dove head-first into his MMA career & didn't have time for anything else. He is asked by his coach to take his high school age daughter Sadie to her senior prom in exchange for a big title fight. So we know right off the bat these two are going to hit it off & this big secret will break her fragile heart.

He became a horndog, well, can't blame him for trying to make up for lost time. Sadie was at times very mature for her age & then at other times totally her age, very immature & trying to make Jude jealous by going way too far with other guys. And Jude became possessive and alpha and lost some of the sweetness I liked about him.

    I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Although I am not a fan of MMA fighting, this series of books by Lane Hart occur primarily while training for the big fight rather than the fight itself. Therefore, if you too are not a fan of MMA, don't let that stop you from reading these books. They are more about the tough alpha men finding love after making stupid mistakes. I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first only because the main characters are younger. They continued I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

It is still a good book and Jude makes it well worth reading. Characters from "Jax" appear in this book as they are brothers, but it is a standalone.
