Hello everyone!!! Today I get to Champion a Book Boyfriend Favorite!! You see, Entangled is doing something awesome. They are pitting hero characters from their published books against each other! YAY! And I chose Jaxon from the Going Down in Flames Series by Chris Cannon! I do know that Jaxon is going up against Jackson from Gravity by Melissa West during round 1. I gotta win to make it to round two, so I am expecting all my cool followers to help me promote him. And of course that means getting down and dirty, though that’s just me, as Jaxon probably would never stoop to those levels hahahaha!!!! So, Let me tell you a little about him, and below that I’ll show you how to vote and his books!! Also, to see THE WHOLE COMPETITION, click on the banner above and it’ll take you to the bracket and all the other stops.
The wonderful author so graciously let me show you some AWESOME pictures of how she sees Jaxon, which also fits my brain as well. So Here we go!
Appears in: The Going Down in Flames series by Chris Cannon
One-sentence summary: honorable, slightly stuck up, HAWT, blue clan dragon shifter
Physical description: tousled blond hair, bright blue eyes, golden skin like a surfer. He looks like the all american boy next door
Description from the wonderful author: Jaxon Westgate is the son of the man Bryn’s mom jilted. He’s been raised to despise her because she damaged his family’s reputation and standing in the dragon community. THEN, Jaxon’s mother and Bryn’s grandmother scheme to set up an arranged marriage between the two. Neither Bryn nor Jaxon is thrilled with this idea.
Jaxon is loyal, honorable, and arrogant and did I mention that he’s hot?
His weapon/swoon-worthy moment:
With Bryn hurt, Jaxon comes to the rescue… Jaxon climbed into the pit and placed one are under Bryn’s lower back and one under her knees. “I’ve got her weight.” … “Look at me, Bryn.” Jaxon held her gaze. “You can do this.” In a swift motion, he pulled her upward and cradled her to his chest.
— so without spoilers, I think this exact moment is where I fell for Jaxon. Because you see, I actually despised Jaxon in most of book one. Until the end. And at the end, and going into book two, you are getting to see Jaxon as a person, not just a dragon. Yeah, he’ some kinda HAWT!!!
He looked at his shoes while he spoke. “I suppose it’s too late to suggest you adopt another kitten, instead?” His tone was dry, but there was truth in his words. ~Bridged Burned
My Second Favorite Jaxon Moment:
“I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but your brand of insanity rubs off. In the sixteen years I’ve been alive, I’ve never seen my mother in her pajamas. It’s disturbing, and it’s your fault.”
My third, but not last favorite Jaxon Moment:
Jaxon draped his jacket over her legs. “Can you sit up?”…. “Tell me I didn’t flash the entire class.” “About a third of them know you wear stockings. I’ll keep the information about the bumblebees to myself.”

Don’t just fight the system…burn it.
Since discovering she is a shape-shifting, fire-breathing dragon on her sixteenth birthday (surprise!), Bryn McKenna’s world has been thrown into chaos. Being a “crossbreed”—part Red dragon and part Blue—means Bryn will never fit in. Not with dragon society. Not with the archaic and controlling Directorate. And definitely not when she has striped hair and a not-so-popular affection for rule-breaking…
But sneaking around with her secret boyfriend, Zavien, gets a whole lot harder when he’s betrothed to someone else. Someone who isn’t a mixed breed and totally forbidden. And for an added complication, it turns out Bryn’s former archnemesis Jaxon Westgate isn’t quite the evil asshat she thought. Now she’s caught between her desire to fit in and a need to set things on fire. Literally.
Because if Bryn can’t adapt to the status quo…well, then maybe it’s time for her to change it.

If her love life is going down in flames, she might as well spark a revolution.
Finding out on your sixteenth birthday you’re a shape-shifting dragon is tough to swallow. Being hauled off to an elite boarding school is enough to choke on.
Since Bryn is the only crossbreed at the Institute for Excellence, all eyes are on her, but it’s a particular black dragon, Zavien, who catches her attention.
Zavien is tired of the Directorate’s rules. Segregated clans, being told who to love, and close-minded leaders make freedom of choice almost impossible. The new girl with the striped hair is a breath of fresh air, and with Bryn’s help, they may be able to change the rules.
At the Institute, old grudges, new crushes, and death threats are all part of a normal day for Bryn. She’ll need to learn to control her dragon powers if she wants to make it through her first year at school. But even focusing on staying alive is difficult when you’re falling for someone you can’t have.
