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.

Quaid
              She let her arms fall and scooted forward on the chair. She leaned forward and looked at me intently. Her eyes were mesmerizing and I found myself distracted by all the different colors trapped there. I had to ask her to repeat herself when I realized she said something and was waiting for a response from me. I needed to get my head in the game where this girl was concerned…this girl…that was the part I seemed to keep forgetting.
              “What did you say?” My voice dipped lower than it normally was and I shifted in my seat as other parts of me started to notice all the interesting and attractive things about Avett Walker as well.
              “I said, I Googled you.” She swept some of her hair back from where it had fallen over her shoulder, and I literally had to force myself to keep my gaze locked on her face as the motion pushed her chest up higher and tighter against the plain, black T-shirt she had on.
              “Oh, yeah? How did that work out for you?” I knew what she would find: my service record, my wedding announcement, my work history from the firm, various tidbits on my most high profile cases, and various articles chronicling my divorce. Most divorces weren’t newsworthy, but when one of the people involved came from money and the other was as high profile as I was, it made for good filer on a slow news day. I was curious to see what her interpretation of the snapshot of my life that existed on the internet was.
              She got up from the chair and started to pace back and forth in front of my desk as she talked. “It worked out well enough, I guess. I saw that you were enlisted when you were younger, which explains why my dad immediately liked you.” She looked at me over her shoulder and a tiny grin tugged at her mouth. “He doesn’t usually like anyone instantly. It takes him a while to warm up.”
              I listened with half an ear as I watched her brightly colored hair swish around her shoulders. She didn’t come across as the girly or overly feminine type, so I wondered why she had gone with such a delicate and pretty pink when coloring her hair.
              “I learned that you’re a Colorado native, that you grew up in the mountains, that your birthday is right around Christmas, which means you’re almost thirty-two, so you’ve accomplished a lot in your career in a short amount of time. I also learned that you own a lot of suits.”
              I snorted out a surprised laugh at that last part, which made her stop pacing. She took a step closer to my desk and put her hands on the opposite edge, leaning forward. The new position made her T-shirt gape at the collar, and even though I refused to look down, I could see the hint of a leopard-print bra peeking out. That hint of something forbidden made my mouth go dry and had my pulse kicking. It was a powerful reaction to very little provocation, and I made myself beat it back, forcibly.  

And don’t miss the first titles in The Saints of Denver Series!

My Review:  Jay Crownover delivers once again in Charged, the latest release in her Saints of Denver Series, providing readers with a hot alpha male hero and a kickass heroine all wrapped up in an action-packed story that will consume your attention from beginning to end.  Quaid is the hot lawyer who rocks a suit and whose commanding presence is palpable both in and out of the courtroom.  Don't let the suit fool you though, he's got a past background that has made him tough as nails.  Avett is a pink-haired wild child who finds herself in one mess after another, the latest of which lands her in jail, which is how she and Quaid meet.  She is also the daughter of Brite, who you will recognize if your familiar with Crowover's previous series.

Avett comes across like she deserves all that's happened to her because of all the bad choices she's made.  She's stubborn and headstrong, and I wasn't sure I was going to like her in the beginning, but she really comes into her own in this novel, showing what a fiercely loyal and loving heart she has. Secrets from her past are revealed, which are heartbreaking, yet help you to understand her even more.  Quaid has his own demons from his past that he's battling, and this little pink-haired ball of fire stirs up all kinds of things in him with the force of a tsunami.  Their romance is hot, passionate, and seems like it will never work, yet is meant to be.  The story is filled with danger, suspense, steamy romance, and plenty of  hotties who ooze badass alpha pheromones right off the pages as you read.

True to form, Jay Crownover delivers yet again, a story that her fans, and contemporary romance fans in general will definitely most definiely want to check out.
