Charged: A Saints of Denver Novel
by Jay Crownover
Release Date: May 24, 2016
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.
Y’all. This book came out two months ago and I’m just now getting to read this masterpiece?!! I was generously gifted this book by a friend months ago so I could read it (for fun) but I didn’t have a chance until now. I’m so sorry for the delay in review.
Charged is Avett and Quaid’s story and is the third book in the Saint’s of Denver series by author Jay Crownover. Avett is apparently a character from the Marked Men series but y’all already know I haven’t read that series (yet!) so she’s a new character to me. 🙂
Avett is a wild child who’s found herself locked up wearing prisoner orange when she meets the Legal Eagle, Quaid. Quaid is her attorney and even in this not-so-wonderful situation Avett finds herself in she takes notice of his hottness.
Quaid is a hot-shot lawyer who lives his life in a vastly different way than our pink-haired heroine. He’s great at his job and knows it but he was never prepared for Hurricane Avett who plowed her way in to his life and maybe even his heart.
I loved this book. The characters were so different from the ones I’ve read lately and their love story wasn’t like anything I can remember reading about before.
Avett and all of her flaws reminded me that we are all capable of growth and change no matter what we may have done in our past. She learned from her mistakes (eventually) and found her way in this world with the help of her executive man. 😉
Quaid reminds me of a tootsie pop. He has this hard exterior and is all business on the outside, but hidden inside is this soft loving man who has only ever wanted to be loved in return.
I give Charged 5 out of 5 Krissy’s Stars.
I’m totally smitten with this #LegalEagle and his #HurricaneAvett!
