KBN Rating:


From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the next installment in the Saints of Denver series.

Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael’s life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she’s done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that’s become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she’s going hunting for him…even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.

Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it’s time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying.

When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he’s all wrong for you.


Dixie and Church’s road trip is a fun, sexy, and romantic excursion for our favorite “Saints of Denver”.


While the beginning of this book takes place in the Mile High, Dixie and Church set out on a voyage to the deep south. Dixie, ever ready to please, agrees to join Church for his long overdue homecoming although she knows this journey will likely end with her broken heart.

Dixie has been crushing on Church hard for a while and although he’s totally attracted to her too, there’s something deep and emotional keeping him from taking her up on her blatant offer. This dance around their mutual attraction is tested to it’s limits while they’re making this trip on a Harley.

There’s one particularly steamy scene that takes place on the side of a honky tonk bar…

Once they arrive in Mississippi and Church must face his past things start to get heavy. This fun and sexy road trip turns in to something of much more substance and we get in to the true meaning behind this story.

Author Jay Crownover always impresses me with her ability to take an ultra steamy romance and add in the perfect balance of angst and drama. The deep emotions are just enough to suck you in to all the feels but don’t overpower the sexiness of the story.

I give Riveted 5 out of 5 Krissy’s Stars.

Church, with his heart breaking past and Dixie with her ever present sunshine are a match made in Heaven. To me, they are both Saints of Denver.
