BLOG TOUR: Jake & Jax (A Mitchell Healy Series) by Jennifer Foor **5 STAR REVIEW**

Jake Mitchell has spent his whole life tied at the hip with his best friend and twin brother Jax. They’ve shared everything, except for women, which was easy since their tastes were so different.

From the moment she walked into the room Jake knew she was special, with her flowing brown locks, supple body, and a smile that could brighten any day. An accident leaves her vulnerable and in the arms of his brother. From that moment she’s in awe of Jax.

Jake tries his best to keep away from Reese Miller. He disrespects her and tells everyone how much she annoys him to make sure she stays at a distance.

Reese can’t stand that Jake hates her. She’s determined to change his mind, not knowing he’s desperately trying to protect his relationship with his brother, and his family.

When the two find themselves alone during a winter storm all bets are off, and what happens next could change everything, including the bond between two brothers.

REVIEW by Shanean 
I have been with this series since the very beginning and it just keeps getting better.  Author Jennifer Foor does an excellent job at making each character stand out in their own way.  Each book is a continuation of the wonderful journey in the Mitchell/Healy clan.  

Jax and Jake Mitchell are twins and I must say very hot, sexy, smooth talking twins.  Each are unique in their own way but both have a passion for football and a way with the ladies.  But it’s one lady in particular that takes both these sweet talking football college guys by surprise.

Reese just literally landed on her butt and into the lives of the Mitchell twins.  Things heat up quickly between her and Jax but it’s Jake that keeps her guessing.  

Then it happens….. A chain of events that change the lives of three people forever.  Jake and Jax said they would never let a girl come between them.  They both had a plan but that was before they both fell in love with the same girl.  Now someone must choose and watch the other get hurt.

Watching this story unfold knowing where it was leading was just killing me. History always manages to repeat itself, but I wasn't for sure if the relationship between these two brothers could be saved. Luckily these boys have their father and uncle to help them along the way.

 Author Jen Foor always keeps me on the edge of my seat with the pull and push of a character waging war with themselves.  She never fears the in your face real facts of love and that it’s not always pretty.  But she also has you right there with that character urging them to take that chance and jump feet first into love no matter the cost.  I was taken on an emotional ride with these three but what I loved the most about this story is the ending which of course sets you up to jump into Jax’s story.  I can’t wait to see if Jax can really hold it together and let his brother and Reese live happily ever after.

Hang on to your seats ladies because these brother will rock your word.

Jax Mitchell isn’t the only one with his handsome face, though he wishes that were different. Everything’s changed in a short amount of time, after his twin brother came between him and his girlfriend, Reese.

With the hurt still lingering in every direction he turns, Jax picks up and moves to Kentucky to work on his uncle’s cattle ranch. It isn’t long until he meets someone that not only helps him get over Reese, but also encourages him to forgive his brother.

Can the twins make amends or has the damage that’s been done too much to forget?

REVIEW by Shanean

Just when you thought all was forgiven.  Jax is more then just upset with Jake he is down right furious with his brother.  Taking his girlfriend is one thing but the betrayal of trust between brother is an entire different ball game.  Jax lost more than just his girlfriend he lost his best friend and a big part of himself when he turned away from his brother and moved to Kentucky.  Now he has set out to drown his sorrows and numb the pain.  But a surprise visit from his brother has him seeing red and he can't wait to show him just how he feels.  

These brother did a lot of head butting in Jax's story and while I did continuously laugh out loud I also found that this story was more about Jax finding a way to forgive and heal his broken heart. 

Amber is the start to Jax's healing process but he to will be able to heal Amber of her doubts and fears.  I loved the passion between these two but the soul bearing conversations they shared just shattered my heart and put it back together again.  Jax and Amber's love can give anyone hope again and show that love can really overcome the hurt from the past and allow us to forgive and live again.  **Beautifully written and emotionally charged.** 

I am so happy that I didn't have to wait for Jax's story after reading Jakes.  So with that in mind I would highly recommend that you read Jake's story first so that you can fully understand the background of these characters.  You will have a much better appreciation for Jax's story and the healing of his heart.
