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.

I felt like the end was lacking something... like their story wasn't finished .. hopefully we get to read about them in future stories in this series ...
#HurricaneAvett took me by storm
When I was first introduced to Avett in Asa, I wasn't her hugest fan. This girl had parents who adored her, yet she was determined to blow her life to pieces. Charged changed my opinion of her drastically. What I discovered was a young woman mired in guilt and self-doubt who was trying find her way. I am now firmly 100% on Team Avett.
Quaid was another character I wasn't sure I would be able to like. In Built, he presented himself as an attractive but cold man. This book proved otherwise. He surrounded himself with the finest things, but seemed to eschew personal connection other than an occasional hookup.
This is a 5 star read that I will recommend to anyone, whether it's the first time you are reading a Crownover book or the thirteenth time.
Hated this book to end
Amazing! I loved Avett and Quaid together and was really looking forward to reading their story. Jay Crownover does such a great job hooking in the reader...I could not put this book down, but then I didn't want to finish it. I thought the characters were well written. I could feel their emotions, and loved their dialog. I too have had some decisions make good stories...but none as good as Avett's!(grin).
