I sell drugs. Heroin to be specific. And I’m fucking good at my job. Enough to fight my way to the top position, controlling all of Austin’s supply.
So what if I had to kill the previous boss to do it. I do what has to be done. Never cared about consequences because I never had anything to lose.
Until I met Miri. My doll. She’s my weakness and somehow, my enemies found out about her.
If they hurt her, they will regret the day they ever heard my name. Boss. They call me Boss for a reason. What I say goes, including the price on the heads of anyone who dares to fuck with what belongs to me.
I could not put this book down. From the first page to the last I was drawn in. This was one wild ride with so many twists and turns, that we never get a chance to catch our breath.
Jagger picks up right where Junkie left off. Miri is gone and Boss is determined to get her back, at any cost. The woman who stole his heart when he least expects it, when he never expected to love again.
I loved the different side we saw of Miri in this book. In Junkie she was weak and almost destroyed by what she has had to endure, however, in Jagger, we get to see her become, or maybe she always was, but was lost for a bit, the strong woman she wanted to be. We saw her strength and determination grow, even when others would have been broken.
Jagger on the other hand, truly embodied Boss to get back what is his and exact revenge. Though Boss thought Jagger long dead, Miri slowly brought him back to life, but now she needed Boss and he was up for the job, even if it was the last thing he did. Through the first half of the book, we saw how determined and furious Boss was but we also begin to see what Miri meant to him and how much she affected his life and future.
Both Jagger and Miri were hopeful to find each other again, but hopeless that it would happen with each passing day. Surrounded by deceit, pain and loss, neither knew who they could truly trust or where to turn. Both of them were so broken and lost, that is seemed there was no redemption for them. However, once they found each other, they were exactly what they needed for each other.
This story flowed quickly, was very intense and the emotions were all over the place. This book was much darker than Junkie. We delve into the dark world of criminals, sex and drugs. It is not an easy journey to travel but I am a big fan of dark stories and Jagger did not disappoint. There is so much I want to share, but this is a story that needs to be experienced and not spoiled, but it is so worth it.
This duet is a must read, especially for those who loved dark romances. There are some part that are very hard to read, but the journey is truly that of two lost, broken people who find what they need with each other.
Jagger by Heather C. Leigh was a 5-star read for me!
Heather C. Leigh is the author of the Amazon best selling Famous series. She likes to write about the ‘dark’ side of fame. The part that the public doesn’t get to see, how difficult it is to live in a fishbowl and how that affects relationships.
Heather was born and raised in New England and currently lives outside Atlanta, GA with her husband, 2 kids, and French Bulldog, Shelby.
She loves the Red Sox, the Patriots, and anything chocolate (but not white chocolate, everyone knows it’s not real chocolate so it doesn’t count) and has left explicit instructions in her will to have her ashes snuck into Fenway Park and sneakily sprinkled all over while her family enjoys beer, hot dogs, and a wicked good time.
My favorite authors are Dan Wells, Ken Follett, and Stephen King.
