Romance Junkies reviews Jaxx Steele!

AFTER THE STORM is a beautiful story penned by a ‘new to me’ author, Jaxx Steele. This is a warm-hearted story filled with sadness, as well as great determination and the will to have it all. Ethan’s no wilting wallflower. He sees Marcus and knows immediately that he wants him. He’s not prepared to accept 'no' or any other excuses. Ethan takes Marcus in hand and decides to show him that he will be there for him. Marcus, who's hurt, bruised and unwilling to try at life and love again, skirts around his attraction to Ethan, but when he is backed into a corner he has no choice but to accept love again.
I loved this book. It's filled with lots of emotionally charged scenes and at a pace that keeps the reader wanting more and praying that the end never to come. Jaxx Steele is definitely one to watch.

The gift that keeps on givingGoing home for the holidays is never easy and Lovell Johnston has always gone home for a weekend at the most, however this yuletide season he's spending a whole week with his mom and sister in his home town. Being different from the other kids growing up has not only left Lovell with unpleasant memories of his teenage years but it has also contributed to his introvert nature and his reluctance to get involved unless it is the real deal.
Running an online business further compounds the solitary lifestyle which he has become used to, so when a new store attendant in his hometown gives him the come hither signal, not only does he not recognize it , he can’t believe someone is actually interested in him - and he is not taking no for an answer.
A sweet seasonal read, where all the goodness of the things the holidays symbolize come out in the Johnston family. Lovell is not expecting miricles on his visit home. However meeting an attractive man who wants to do more than just hold his shopping basket, is not only a welcome pleasure-- but he has to temper his excitement, as sometimes some things are just too good to be true. Jaxx Steele's THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING is a feel good story that will certainly leave readers with a happy smile on their faces.

Papa knows Best
With every book Jaxx Steel comes up with, he gets better and better. After reading it
I had to take a day or two to really think about all the things happening in this book. Jaxx Steele has not only given us a story about the obvious, but he has taken two men at differently stage of their life, different levels of confidence and different expectations out of a relationship and put them together with dynamite results. PAPA KNOWS BEST is a book with surprising depth and enough heartfelt emotion to make it a winner.
Jaxx Steele has worked his magic and his writing style is clearly imprinted on this wonderful read. He has created a magical tale of two men whose needs and, albeit dragging their feet to get the ultimate outcome- they got there and it was a pleasure sharing in their journey.
