Synopsis:The next book in the smoking hot SAINTS OF DENVER series from NYT bestselling author of the MARKED MEN series, Jay Crownover
Avett Walker and Quaid Jackson’s worlds have no reason to collide. Quaid is a high powered criminal attorney as slick as he is handsome, and 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 this insanely sexy lawyer. The last thing on earth she wants to do is rely on a man who thinks of her as nothing more than a nuisance, 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 Avett. She could stand to learn a hard lesson or two, but something about her guileless hazel eyes intrigues him. But keeping their relationship strictly business is becoming more impossible with each day he spends with her.
They have to figure out a way to get along and keep their hands off each other – because the chemistry between them is beyond charged.

I received a review copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I'm not a huge fan of the cover and normally I would most likely look past this kind of cover as there's nothing that grabs me. The only thing I like about this cover is the girl that's been used does remind me of Avett especially with that pink hair. I think what spoils this cover for me would be the colour used for the title as I don't think it really works well with all the other colours used.

I don't know why but I was a bit nervous about reading this book but I needn't have been as from the very beginning to the last page I loved it there was nothing that didn't have me annoyed. What I thought was going to bug me was that this one overlapped with the first book as I thought that I wanted it to start from the end of Built but thankfully it never bother me one bit as I was too involved in Avett and Quaid's story to care about the previous couple. I loved the chemistry between Avett and Quaid as they were meant to be together and you could tell how much they cared about one another. They had smoking hot moments but what I loved the most was the sweet and tender moments as it made it feel real. I loved that it wasn't just about the romance but also about learning to love themselves wart and all. There was never a dull moment with something always happening. I loved the ending as it felt realistic.

I loved all the characters in this book well maybe not the ones that we were supposed to hate as they where just evil as for the rest I loved them. Avett was a great character and what I loved the most about her was she wasn't perfect like all female characters are in other books that I've read. Avett had her issues that she had to work through but even with all those issues you could tell she wanted to better herself. Quaid another great character that had a difficult past that he hadn't quite got over but I still loved him especially the way he was with Avett. There was some appearances from Marked Men series which I still haven't read but it still has me excited about reading their stories as well as some future Saints of Denver main characters.

Overall, this has to be my favourite Jay Crownover book that I have read so far and I can't wait to read more from her if this one is anything to go by her books are just going to improve the further I go into her series.
