About CHARGED:

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the second installment in the Saints of Denver series featuring a bad girl and a by the book attorney who could be her salvation…or her ruin.

Avett Walker and Quaid Jackson’s worlds have no reason to collide. Ever. Quaid is a high powered criminal attorney as slick as he is handsome. Avett is a pink-haired troublemaker with a bad attitude and a history of picking the wrong men.

When Avett lands in a sea of hot water because of one terrible mistake, the only person who can get her out of it is the insanely sexy lawyer. The last thing on earth she wants to do is rely on the no-nonsense attorney who thinks of her as nothing more than a nuisance. He literally has her fate in his hands. Yet there is something about him that makes her want to convince him to loosen his tie and have a little fun…with her.

Quaid never takes on clients like the impulsive young woman with a Technicolor dye job. She could stand to learn a hard lesson or two, but something about her guileless hazel eyes intrigues him. Still, he’s determined to keep their relationship strictly business. But doing so is becoming more impossible with each day he spends with her.

As they work side-by-side, they’ll have to figure out a way to get along and keep their hands off each other—because the chemistry between them is beyond charged.

Excerpt

Avett

I blew out a breath and felt that bottom I had careened onto reach up to embrace me even tighter. “It is what it is. I’ve let both my folks down a lot over the last few years but getting caught up with a guy that would rob the bar, a guy who could threaten my dad’s people.” I shook my head. “I deserve to rot.”

I was being overly dramatic but that’s how I felt. I deserved to sit in jail and so much worse than that. Self-pity was good company down here at rock bottom and I wasn’t ready to let go of the warmth it provided just yet.

He gave me a look I couldn’t read and headed for the door. “I’ll call your parents for you and see if we can have something in place before tomorrow. Working on your case will be a lot easier for both of us if you aren’t incarcerated. Remember, you need to listen to me, Ms. Walker. That’s the first rule in all of this.”

Panic hit me like a truck. What if he called my dad and my dad told him he’d had enough of his problematic daughter and her endless nonsense? What if he couldn’t love me anymore? Jail I could survive; losing my father for good, well, it would be the end of me.

Without thinking I jumped to my feet, which had the chains on both my hands and my legs rattling loudly, and two uniformed officers hurried into the room. I was about to make maybe the worst decision to date but I couldn’t stop the words from sliding off my tongue.

“Don’t call my dad!” Recklessness, thy name was Avett Walker.

The attorney turned around and looked at me like I had grown a second head. He didn’t say anything as the officers moved to either side of me and told me to calm down.

“You can’t call my dad.” The words sounded as panicked and as desperate as I felt on the inside.

His broad shoulders lifted and fell in a shrug like he really couldn’t give a shit that he was about to ruin my life…which was saying a hell of a lot considering where I was.

“I have to.” He sounded bored and impatient with my outburst.

I narrowed my eyes at him, and that vortex of awful, which I always seemed to be smack dab in the center of, started to spin faster and faster around me.

“Then you’re fired.” I saw the cops exchange a look and my rushed words had the blond man turning fully back around to look at me. “I don’t want your help. I don’t want anything from you.”

Finally, there was something other than indifference in his gaze. There was surprise, maybe a hint of admiration colliding with a huge splash of humor in the pale depths.

“Sorry, Ms. Walker, but you didn’t hire me, so that means you don’t get to fire me.” That grin of his, which should be registered as a deadly weapon, flashed across his face again as he watched me, and then he was gone.

Review

Charged
Charged by Jay Crownover
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

An irresistibly sexy and heartwarming story about forgiveness, love and self-discovery where the hero and heroine blaze the pages with their delectably charged dynamics.

“Memories and mistakes are both beautiful and important in their own ways. Love and Ink, Jay”

Avett has spent a good deal of her life toeing the line, making wrong decisions, starting with her taste in men. The last of which took her down with him and now the only man who can get her out of spending time behind bars is the super-hot, high polished attorney who “looked like temptation and ruin, not salvation and redemption.”

Quaid’s usual suspects don’t usually include pink haired hurricanes, but after meeting the open and honest, yet feisty woman face to face he’s determined to help her and not even she can fire him. But can he stay on his side of the attorney-client line when the attraction between them increases with each passing day?

On the surface, they are completely different, but it’s a natural fact that opposites attract and when Avett Walker and Quaid Jackson’s lives cross paths they not only draw each other in, they explode in an array of sensual vibrancy and tenderness.

Jay writes the kind of books you crave to have and love to read. Every book has the right mix of drama, sharpness, romance, and sexiness with layered characters that feel completely different each time, even when I’ve read almost all her books.

“There was a pulse in the air, a vibration I couldn’t name, but it felt electric and more alive than anything that had crossed my path in decades.”

Despite the loving parents and upbringing, Avett’s went off the rails and she doesn’t have an easy road ahead. She knows the exact turning point when her life started going downhill until she hit rock bottom. Getting up will be difficult, but she’s not alone and with Quaid and her father as her most formidable supporters she’ll surely succeed. Something I’ve very glad for because despite her feeling unworthy, I liked her very much. She’s lively and kind and the perfect counter point to Quaid’s void life.

“This little slip of a woman could demolish me, waste me, annihilate me, and if I allowed her to do it, I knew it would feel better than anything had in a very long time.”

Groing up, Quaid had nothing but was resolute in having everything, but after his wife cheats and leaves him, he realizes that a life filled with high priced suites and baubles is worth nothing if you don’t have someone who truly loves you to share it with. Despite his confidence and even arrogance, I really liked that he wasn’t afraid to open up to Avett.

“I wanted to eat her up. I wanted her wild to consume, to burn and purge all the things that had long since turned sour and stale inside of me. I ached for her sweet to soothe me after we scorched through each other and were left in a heap in our own wreckage, covered in ash and satisfaction.”

I loved the age gap between them because it helped with their cohesiveness. She’s young but put her crazy behind her and Quaid has experienced enough to know a good thing when he sees it. These to burned up my eReader and had me highlighting good stuff in every other page. But there was more…

The relationship between Avett and her father was absolutely lovely. The all-encompassing love of a parent towards their child, no matter how old, deserves a special shout out. I loved that we got the side story of Avett’s parents which felt like a special bonus. I actually loved everything about this book, from its wonderful introduction, to the soothing narrative with its steady and Charged flow, to Quaid’s decisiveness to fight and keep the woman he loved, and finally Avett who fought to set her past behind and find herself in order to take hold of the perfect man for her.

“I’m taking your wild and sweet, Avett. I’m going to know what it feels like against me. I’m going to remember how it tastes and how it moves so that when I’m inside of it, I won’t get swept away by it all.”

Charged is the second book in the Saints of Denver series by Jay Crownover. This is a spin-off of her Marked Men series. It is a standalone, contemporary romance filled with scorching hot sexiness as well as incredibly sweet tenderness. Told from both points of view with a happy ending.
