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.


Loved. Loved. Loved. This book!! Jay Crownover keeps getting better and better with each story she writes. This book had my heart from the very beginning and I know you will love it too.

Jay has a magnificent talent of writing broken characters that seem to fuse together and create something more beautiful. Then comes Avett Walker and I am stunned because although she is broken and firmly planted in self ruination, I could understand her. I felt her pain and knew her reasons and loved her all the more for them. Especially when she realized that her behavior needed to change. Her moments of clarity are painful to witness but oh spot on brilliant. Then in comes Quaid and my heart overflows with his story and his knowledge that Avett is the diamond in the rough. Although he may not realize it at first it draws him to her and then I am hopelessly drawn to them. I loved their interactions and how honest they were with each other. No games. No playing around. Just take me as I am and that is what I love so much about this book

Although this book centers on Avett and Quaid we do get to see characters from Jay's other amazing books and I loved their cameo's especially Asa's because it made me adore him all the more. Just read it and you will totally see what I mean. 

Then let's get down to the nitty gritty. Holy! BATMAN!! it was awesome! The intimate scenes in this book are HOT! So hot I had to stop and fan myself. I could not believe my eyes and Avett's christmas "gift" still has me reeling for it was soooo damn good. Loved everything about this book, my only complaint is that it didn't last longer because I want MORE!!

I didn't know what to expect when I started CHARGED except that knew I would be in for a glorious ride as Jay Crownover always manages to achieve. Never could I imagine that I would experience the blissful sexed up "all the feels" perfections as I did with this book.  Avett and Quaid's relationship was like this comet that scorched the pages and kept burning brightly even after I finished the last word and now they are forever with me.
