Book & Author details:
Irons by M.J. Fields
(The Norfolk Series #1)
Publication date: August 10th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance
I was born and bred to be the man I am today. My father and his father were both graduates from The United States Naval Academy in Annapolis. Both went on to become helicopter pilots. Both had seen plenty of action. Both had met and caused devastation. Both men, who I respect more above all, had served and protected the United States and her people honorably for decades.
My best friend, William Cruz, who attended the academy with me, had flown beside me, had lived the same life as I had and shared the same ambitions in life, was gone now. This was not part of the plan. Will and I were supposed to have each other’s backs, support each other and never let anything supersede our bond.
I sat on Norfolk Beach needing to feel close to him on the anniversary of his death. It was a beautiful day in May and I was cutting class. I had done the same every year since he passed.
Jaxson Irons was only supposed to be in Pensacola for a year. But now three years later I still hadn't heard from him. I saw a man running down the beach and I knew immediately who it was.
Jaxson didn't respond the way I had dreamed he would. He told me we would catch up someday soon. I stood and watched until he was gone.
Thump, thump. I placed my hand on my chest as I felt my heart beat again for what felt like the first time in three years. Thump, thump. I felt the blood moving quickly through my body. Its heat once again present. Thump, thump. I looked up at the sky and let out a breath. A breath that I had been holding forever. Thump, thump.
I felt tears fall down my face as I raised my hands in the air and laughed out loud. Just then the clouds parted for the first time in forever. I saw the sun smiling down on me.

WARNING: Ends in Cliffhanger!
So I’m not a big fan of books that end in a cliffhanger but this book was really good. I love a good alpha male and Jax Irons was that to perfection.
Jax Irons is a pilot in the US Navy and born into the life. He followed his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps and even has dreams of becoming the president. His best friend William Cruz followed along the same path with Jax until an accident took his life. At the funeral Jax runs into Francesca (Will’s younger sister). After everyone leaves she confesses that she has always loved him. Jax leaves Norfolk for 3 years to return when Frankie is a Junior in College.
Frankie and Jax end up getting together but there are people and things trying to get in the way of breaking them apart.
I enjoyed this book because it was not only a romance but it had some suspense in it as well. I only wish that I didn’t have to wait until October 2015 for the next book in the series to come out.
If you like cliffhangers than I recommend this book. If not and you are still interested I would wait until next October to read then you could jump right into the next book.
