I read this as a boxed set containing both Book One and Book Two. I’m glad I was able read it this way as I am not sure I would have Book Two if it wasn’t the next page.

Told in dual POV, the story involves the “taboo ” step-sibling genre, the corporate CEO genre, and second chance genre (this is not a spoiler as it is explained in the blurb). It has very ambitious desires and sometimes it falls short and sometimes it was exactly right.

The characters are developed quickly, we are able to determine different things with flashbacks and the writer was able to move the story along at a decent pace.

Every single one of these characters bugged me at certain points – some by their actions, some by their inactions.

I always appreciate when an author puts their words on paper. While this is a well structured story, it just wasn’t my cup of tea.

Well wasn’t this a fantabulous boxed set from the ever fabulous Ms. Deborah Ann!?! I absolutely just could get enough of these books. The angst, the slow build of that perfect explosive and poetic chemistry and pure steam that is Maddison and Jaxon, down straight to the emotive emotional second chances and lessons that come with past transgressions… This book, well both rather, wer absolutely the perfect combination that I was craving at the time. (Whether I knew it or not at first! 🙂 ) From the very first chapter to the riveting end of conclusion of book two I was hooked and often struggled with adulting hahaha. I won’t sit here and paraphrase the already perfect and gripping summary and blurbs that accompany this book. The juicy details are so much better to be found out going in blind and being completely wan with the story. I just can’t find enough glowing things to say about these novels, but in the meantime I will be daydreaming Maddison and Jaxon until the next project from Ms. Deborah Ann gives forth. Thank so much for these beautiful and fantastic reads!

I love step sibling stories, and I really loved how differently this one was done.
Maddison and Jaxon’s parents married secretly and sprung the kids together over dinner.
Maddison, though she fights it so, so hard, just cant deny the pull to Jaxon.
This series had it all, steamy scenes, drama, heartbreak and more.
If you like step sibling stories this set is for you.

MaddJax Series, Boxed Series Set, Book One & Book Two: A Second Chance Stepbrother/co-CEO Romance by Deborah Ann . This is a super steamy romance. Its the story of Jaxon Jaimison and Maddison Cole who are super infatuated with each other. Even when they first met at 15 they knew they would be together. The chemistry between them is sizzling. When Jaxon leaves town and breaks Maddison’s heart she doesn’t think she will ever heal and she knows she will never love again. Then Jaxon’s dad marries Maddison’s step sister making them step siblings causing another kink. When Jaxon comes back to town and just acts like nothing has happened will Maddison be able to forgive him and move on and not care what other people think about their relationship? I loved both these books. They are what a good romance is all about.

MaddJax Series Boxed Set contains both books in the MaddJax Series. It is a fantastic, sexy, second chances, forbidden, stepbrother/stepsister romance- with plenty of drama, intrigue, angst, and chemistry.
I have loved absolutely everything that I have read of Deborah Ann’s- so I did have pretty high expectations for this series. I am really happy with what I discovered, and the way the whole story played out- even though there were quite a few dramatic, and frustrating moments over the course of the story.
I was certainly pulled in multiple directions, avidly reading to find out what wold happen. I really don’t want to get into the story too much, because I don’t want to spoil it for you, plus the blurb does a better job than I ever could anyway- but if you are a second chances, forbidden, or stepbrother/stepsister romance fan- then this series is most definitely one you won’t want to miss.
Looking forward to more from this talented author!

Thank you Deborah Ann!!

MaddJax Boxed Series Set (Book 1 & 2) is a Second Chance Stepbrother/co-CEO Romance by Deborah Ann. I cannot recall reading this author’s work before, and was delighted at the great storyline and always dramatic twists to the story. Maddison and Jaxon were meant to be together. But with them being step siblings, things were a lot complicated. The author stretched this out with intense determination. Frustrating and baffling at times, the intrigue, drama and theatrics should be commended. They kept me riveted to the pages. I could have shaken some sense into Maddison at times, but overall she was a fun, edgy and modern classy woman suppressing her darkest desires. Jax, on the other hand, was an open book when it came to his feelings for Maddison. He was in your face, brutally honest, and sexy all in one built package.

A fantastic series that flowed easily, extravagantly and effortlessly. A must for lovers of the forbidden. 4 stars.

MaddJax boxed series by Deborah Ann is a second chance love story that will be sure to grab your attention! This is exactly the kind of book I always love and this one is easily one of the best.
Right from the word go I really felt like this author too me on a journey. You were pulled in all directions with the emotions and the drama. You never quite knew which direction you might find yourself in next.
The chemistry between Maddison and Jaxon was electric. You could feel it in each and every page. This is a brilliant series and one I would highly recommend.

Maddison and Jaxon – steamy. Dramatic. Wonderfully up and down. I wanted to shake them and scream at them and laugh with them… as you can tell it gave me all the feels. I didn’t have any expectations when I picked up this series but hands down loved every page. Definite recommend this second chance romance. Deliciously wonderful.

5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading MaddJax Series, Boxed Series Set, Book One & Book Two: A Second Chance Stepbrother/co-CEO Romance by Deborah Ann. The two stories are wonderful and had me hooked. They pulled me in and I found myself lost in the storyline and enjoying reading about the characters of Maddison Cole and Jaxon Jaimison. Maddison is an intelligent, kind, beautiful, and stubborn woman. She had her heart broken in the past when he left. He has just walked back into her life. She has never been able to get Jaxon out of her mind. Jaxon is a man that knows what he wants. It is Maddison. He is handsome, charming, and confident. He is determined that she will be his and vows that he will never leave her again. Can he convince Maddison to trust him? Although they have been apart from each other for years the attraction and emotions they feel for each other are strong. With Jaxon being her step-brother, a relationship could be considered forbidden. There is passion, sparks, and chemistry. What does the future hold for Maddison and Jaxon? Read this book to find out. I found myself saying “I will read just one more chapter,” and then reading far into the night. The story is romantic and there are some steamy moments that will make the temperature in the room rise. I grew to care about Jaxon and Maddison with each chapter that I read and I wanted them to find happiness. I enjoyed reading about the many other characters that are introduced who care and support Maddison and Jaxon. This is a set of books that I would suggest that you add to the top of your to-be-read list.

I loved this box set, steamy, drama! I enjoyed how I was pulled right into the story of Maddison and Jaxon from the beginning. They are great characters with chemistry and plenty of steam, oh, and Jaxon is her step brother. One night, one secret and now history just might repeat itself. This is a second chance at love series that I had a hard time putting down. I love it when I don’t have to wait for the next book to find out what happens next. I highly recommend this box set, a must read.
