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.



Don’t worry, Sprite, bad decisions always make for good stories…

I could hear my dad’s gruff voice, lightened with humor, in my ear as he told me those words every single time I got caught doing something I wasn’t supposed to do when I was growing up. I was always doing something I shouldn’t then and now, so I heard those words a lot from him. Unfortunately, as an adult, my bad decisions resulted in consequences far worse than a scraped knee or a broken wrist from falling out of the tree in the backyard he warned me repeatedly wasn’t sturdy enough to limb. And sadly, my dad reassuring me in his firm and gentle way, while calling me his little Sprite as he kissed my boo-boos, wasn’t going to help my current situation at all.

This boo-boo was big-time.

This boo-boo was life-changing.

This boo-boo was anything but a good story waiting to be told.

This boo-boo very well could be the end of me, the end of the rope where my patient parents had dangled precariously for years, and it very well could be the end of any kind of future I may have had. A future I was well on my way to letting a lifetime of bad decisions and even worse choices screw up. At barely twenty-two, bad decisions had sort of become my stock in trade and were as familiar to me as my own face. I was almost legendary, at this point, for putting all my trust in the absolutely wrong kind of people. If there was a wrong path to take, I was going to skip gleefully down that road and not look back until I ended up exactly in the kind of situation I found myself in at the moment. It wasn’t like this was even a new dead end; it was the same one I ran into over and over again. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t get myself turned around, and the longer I was at this dead end, the darker and more wicked it became.

I knew better. I really did, even if there was a boatload of evidence contradicting that fact.

I wasn’t stupid, naïve, immature, or senseless. I might appear that way to anyone on the outside looking in, but I had my reasons for being a consummate failure and lifelong loser. All of those reasons had nothing to do with me not knowing better and everything to do with me knowing exactly what I deserved.

For a long time now I had been spiraling out of control, whirling, falling deep and deeper into a pit of really awful actions and consequences, each seemingly worse and more painful than the last. I also hadn’t made any kind of effort to try and pull myself out of it, so logically I knew the only place I was going to end up was right here, right at the lowest part of rock bottom. I never imagined the landing would be so jarring.
** I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review **

Omg, I still can’t believe I had the chance to read this book before its released! Because, you know —or if you don’t I tell you now… I was looking forward so bad for Avett’s story. And of course, I’ve been fan of Jay’s books for… not too long time but for a long.

First —as always, this is the second book in the Saints of Denver series, can it be read as a standalone? I think yes, it can, but if I were you with no debut I would read any of the others books in this series, as well as in the Marked Men series because they’re intertwined, before read this one, or… just read Charged and then go back to the others —in any case it would be an incredible experience.

"Don't worry, Sprite, bad decisions make for good stories."

So, Avett is introduced to us in the Marked Men series, and there we could see her personality, or at least a part of it, because this book is where we really see how she really is, and how she feels or why she does what she does —you know, the real Avett. Also, in the timeline, this book comes after Asa’s —sixth in the MM series. This starts with Avett being in trouble due to all what happened at Rome’s bar, so yep, she’s in serious serious problems now, like jail-time kind. And here’s when Quaid Jackson enters —someone we met in Built, first book. Both of them are completely, like completely different, I’m not kidding at all, I’d say he’s perfect, but if you have read any of Jay’s book, you know they’re not perfect men, but at least they’re something.

Quaid seems or thinks to know what he wants, and when he meets Avett… maybe he’s not sure anymore. Ok, he knows Avett is trouble personify, but that doesn’t seem to make a different, and imperfectly perfect couples are the best! Along the story we can see how just giving someone a chance and time you can know them and not just the stereotype like Quaid being the impeccable lawyer we can see at the beginning. The attraction, the chemistry and the connection are so hot, they can burn the book together —alas, not literary.

Jay’s writing was incredible, she’s a badass when it comes to make—and take— two characters who deserves a moment to show and tell their stories —or story. Overall, we have Avett who’s a girl that has —not a problem but who makes bad decisions, but at the same time someone takes responsibility of her actions. And Quaid who likes to be in control of —almost— everything, including his feelings. I really enjoyed how all happened, how things took and made sense between them, and of course, the nonstop reading that’s worthy. I highly reccomend it.
