    Excellent

    This is one of my favorite authors. When she puts a book out I willingly hand over all my trust to her that I will like it even if I'm not one hundred percent sure. She never lets me down and Charged is not different. I didn't really like Avett as a character so I wasn't sure I would love a story about her. Yet again though Jay Crownover didn't steer me wrong. This book is absolutely amazing. I ended up falling in love with the story and with Avett and Quiad. This book is so great and I can't recommend it enough.

    Excellent!!

    Charged, the second book in the Saints of Denver series, is another amazing story to come out of the wonderful imagination of Ms. Crownover. Yeah, I'm a fan. In her introduction, she talks about giving a story to a character that no one really likes. She hopes readers will eventually like that character by the end of the story. I will admit that Avett was one of those characters for me. I didn't like her in previous books. But after reading Charged, I'm convinced she deserved a story. I devoured this book. I loved Avett and Quaid together. At first glance, it looks like opposites attracting. Yet, when you look under the surface, they are more alike than they seem at first. The chemistry between the two was off the charts! I'm not going to give away any of Avett's secrets. Just know that after hearing them you will be rooting for her as much as I was. One of the best parts of the books is a sneak peek into Church's thoughts. After that scene, I can't wait to read his story. I just wish I didn't have to wait until 2017! I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Jay Crownover's best work yet!

    I truly love Jay Crownover’s writing. She’s as adept at writing about tortured heroes trying to remain on the right side of good as she is about tortured anti-heroes who don’t. Her writing is so layered and dimensional, it paints a picture of life in Colorado and dives deeply into the character’s lives, making them seem real. I was riveted to the story from the very first page, and by that I mean the dedication. The story hadn’t even started yet, and I was already invested. Both the dedication and introduction set the tone for the book. They make you feel like it is drawing you into the author’s personal memories and experiences, at times feeling like an auto-biography of sorts. Avett Walker is described as wild and sweet and that exactly what she is. She’s a force to be reckoned with and is set on making bad decisions in her life. One of those decisions leads her to Quaid Jackson. Quaid is a man who is tired of putting on appearances, living behind an armor, and doing the right thing. Avett barrels her way into his life and his thoughts and he can’t get enough. They were like oil and water, but they mixed together in such an explosive way. I couldn’t get enough of them. As much as I loved Avett and Quaid, my favorite part of Charged had to be Avett’s relationship with her dad. He loves her so fiercely, it brought tears to my eyes at one point. Like Brite, my dad is taciturn, but you know when he is disappointed and you also know when he is going to fight for you. Avett’s relationship with her dad is similar to my own, so I felt an immediate connection to her. Brite may be big and gruff, but he’s so loving and supportive, I couldn’t help but love him. I’ve read and loved many of Jay Crownover’s books, but I honestly believe this is her best yet. Charged feels like it’s deeply personal to the author--like she just opened her heart and poured it out onto the page. I highly recommend this book. And this series. Ok, just read all of her books, she’s that good!

    Hurricane of emotions :)

    Rating: 4.5/5 I was really excited about Avett's book because like any characters in this series, you know she deserves to be heard; she deserves that we get the time to see who she truly is. Since she first appeared in the Marked Men series, she is portrayed in a way that made us annoyed with her. I wouldn't go towards the word hate because I never hated her; I was just annoyed with all the poor choices she made, but she wouldn't have fit with the whole bunch if she happened to be perfect either. I never knew if we would get her story, but Jay, like a fairy godmother, made our wish come true with this spin-off and added Avett's book to it. This book starts after the events that occurred in Asa's book. If you haven't read that book, I suggest you stop reading this now and go read it like right now. Spoilers might be said in this book though maybe nothing to stop you from reading Asa's book, but let's not take any chances. Avett is in big trouble due to her role in the armed robbery at Rome's bar and she is facing jail time. Avett acted out a lot and we saw her dad having a lot of problems with her though he never gave up on her. Her relationship with her mother is rocky at best and her latest actions are not helping much to reconnect with her. Enter Quaid Jackson, who we met briefly in Built (which you should also totally read if you haven't), to save the day. On the outside, Quaid looked like the picture perfect of what an attorney must look like. Suits and ties, confidence and a lot of charisma. But if you have read Jay's books, you know her men are anything but perfect. From the moment they both meet, something is definitely building. Some attraction for sure, but a connection neither seem to understand. On the outside, they are the definition of day and night, but once you start reading about their thoughts and feelings, they are the definition of never judge a book by its cover. Throughout this book, you learn a lot about these two characters. Avett’s confessions will bring forth other confessions from her entourage, mending some broken links with her family while Quaid’s priorities will change as he rediscovers who he is really. A lot happens in this book and I’m really trying to make a general review without giving too much away, but if you fell in love with Jay’s other characters, you will love them too. You will cheer their triumphs, cry with them and let’s admit it, you will scream at them for their stupid choices too hahaha Forgiveness is a strong subject in this book and it’s beautifully used in it; especially the forgiveness for oneself. Jay has a way to write that makes you addicted from the first few sentences. Each new chapter begs for the next one and each ending makes you want the next instalment in the series. Once again, Jay has proven why she is in my top 5 favourite authors.
