I sell drugs. Heroin to be specific. And I’m fucking good at my job. Enough to fight my way to the top position, controlling all of Austin’s supply.
So what if I had to kill the previous boss to do it. I do what has to be done. Never cared about consequences because I never had anything to lose.
Until I met Miri. My doll. She’s my weakness and somehow, my enemies found out about her.
If they hurt her, they will regret the day they ever heard my name. Boss. They call me Boss for a reason. What I say goes, including the price on the heads of anyone who dares to fuck with what belongs to me.

Jagger starts just after Junkie ends. I read the books three days apart, but I would strongly suggest reading the books back to back. I think staying in the crazy, intense world of Miri and Jagger would have made the experience of reading Jagger far better for me. As it was, it took me a little while to get back into the mindset of the dark, horrible, criminal underbelly that these books resided in.
I felt a strange disconnect from this book as I was reading it. I know it wasn’t the writing, as it was the same as book one, and was spot on. I think this disconnect caused me to not be as wholly invested in the fates of Miri, Jagger, and the other characters as I was in Junkie. The action was still there, the same intensity between all of the characters, but just a little something was missing for me. The book didn’t keep me on my toes nearly as much as Junkie did, in fact it felt predictable for the most part. I will say there was one surprise, but even that fell flat for me as it was very contrived.
That all being said, it was a good book, I did feel compelled to continue reading to discover how everything panned out for Miri, Jagger, and the others. I sped through the book in fact. Heather C. Leigh definitely knows her stuff and is able to write very compelling stories. She will definitely be an author who I read further.
Jagger was a bit of a let-down after Junkie. It wasn’t bad, by any means, but it just didn’t hold up to its predecessor, for me.
Heather C. Leigh is the author of the Amazon best-selling Famous series. She likes to write about the ‘dark’ side of fame. The part that the public doesn’t get to see, how difficult it is to live in a fishbowl and how that affects relationships.
Heather was born and raised in New England and currently lives outside Atlanta, GA with her husband, 2 kids, and French Bulldog, Shelby.
She loves the Red Sox, the Patriots, and anything chocolate (but not white chocolate, everyone knows it’s not real chocolate so it doesn’t count) and has left explicit instructions in her will to have her ashes snuck into Fenway Park and sneakily sprinkled all over while her family enjoys beer, hot dogs, and a wicked good time.
My favorite authors are Dan Wells, Ken Follett, and Stephen King.
