The first in the new SAINTS OF DENVER series from NYT bestselling author of the MARKED MEN series, Jay Crownover
Sometimes you have to tear everything down to build something new…
Sayer Cole is frozen inside. At least, that’s what it’s felt like for as long as she can remember. She’s yet to let anyone past her icy exterior – and the one guy she thinks might melt her heart couldn’t possibly be interested in someone so uptight.
Rough, hard and hot-as-hell, Zeb Fuller has rebuilt his life and his construction business since protecting his family sent him to jail all those years ago. His elegant client, Sayer, makes him feel like a Neanderthal in denim, but despite the many hints that he’s been dropping to get to know her better, she seems oblivious to his charms.
Just as things finally start to heat up, Zeb’s past comes back to haunt him and he needs Sayer’s professional help to right a wrong and to save more than himself. As these opposites dig in for the fight of their lives, fire and ice collide in an unstoppable explosion of steam…
I haven't yet read anything by Jay . So i figured this was a great way to dip my toe in the pool of Jay Crownover awesomeness. and I'm going to start by saying... I'm so glad I did. I only wish I didn't listen to it while doing something else, because I wanted to devote all my time to listening to this story.
I loved the way that just from the beginning Zeb just knew what he wanted when it came to Sayer. When it came to his family. He's so protective.. and I love it. I love what he did for his sister. What he did for Sayer. I love that he works with his hands. He is not some high falluting suit, he's a regular guy but still damn sexy. So damn sexy. And Jay has managed to make a beard so..damn.. hot!
I haven't read the others books Jay has written, but the names do sound very familiar. And the way this was written, makes me want to pick up those other books.
I also really love what Jay did what Sayer and her emotional abuse. She made it real. She didn't just make Zeb fix her. She made it realistic. She made the emotional abuse of what Sayer battled through so close to what the reality of what emotional abuse is like. Its very true to life. It isn't just something you get over. It's a battle. And a battle that Sayer fought. A battle that Zeb was great to help her see only she was the one strong enough to get through it. Like I said, so very realistic. Not just.. a hot guy, oh Boom fixed, like so many other books .
The narrators on this book were good. I liked the switch from male to female. I also like their intonations and the way they conveyed the story. It was not just one monotone voice over and boring. It was great to listen to.
A 4 star audio for me
