Irons 1 by MJ Fields with Review

Title: Irons (Norfolk#1)
Author: MJ Fields 
Genre: Romance/ Military 

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. It’s 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.
This ARC was given to me for my honest review
This is the first book in the Irons Series.
This is the story of Jax and Frankie. Jax was born and raised to live the plan his father set for him. Jax has given his life to the military. Jax's best friend Will and his family gave him something he never had before, Normal he felt loved and accepted. When will passes away Jax puts as much distance as he can between him, and the life he had with Will's family. Now fate has put Frankie right in front of him. This time is's not running from his feelings. He will be what ever Frankie needs him to be. At this time she needs him to protect her, but how will he protect her when he may be the one causing the danger to her?
Once again MJ has given us all new characters to fall I'm love with. Jax is the dark hero in so many ways. I love his attitude. He knows what he wants and he's not afraid of a bit of work to get it. Frankie was not my fav character, but I see her growing as the story continues. Frankie demands thinks of Jax, then when he agrees she want to be mad at him. By the end of the book I did see Frankie settling and trying to work with Jax instead of agains him. I am looking forward to the next book while Jax is amazing the way he is I am looking forward to seeing Frankie grow a bit for the whining little girl to someone strong enough to stand next to Jax instead of behind him.
