Saints of Denver (2) – Charged, Crownover, Jay


Charged (Saints of Denver, Book 2) by [Crownover, Jay]

Genre:  Erotica, New adult.

I’ve read a few of Jay’s novels now, hadn’t read the first in this new series though but that didn’t matter it was easy to keep up with. There’s characters here from the Marked Men series and its fun to see how they’re all getting along now.

I loved Quaid, and of course Avett. Its easy to judge people looking at their outsides – the faces they show, and yet underneath they have reasons for portraying that appearance that isn’t really who they are. That was so true of Avett, she was judging herself so harshly, acting up because she just had no self esteem left, blamed herself for some things in her past. She was so lucky in her support from parents and dad’s “brothers”.

I loved the push and pull tension between Avett and Quaid, their sensuality was tangible, it jumped off the page to the reader just how connected they felt, but of course who Avett was and where she was going didn’t match with who Quaid wanted to be and where he wanted to go in his future. I really enjoy that, when two such disparate people get together, wondering if and how they can make things work. I enjoyed the suspense angle, it was fun- though not for Avett of course! but somehow, just like their romance, it felt a little “lite”, a bit slick and polished, where I need the rawness and unpredictability of both to really love this type of book. It was a well deserved fours stars for me but a bit short of the full five. For JC lovers though I’m sure this will be the perfect read.
