    Strong characters, intrigue and a lot of awesome!

    **I voluntarily read an early copy of this title courtesy of the publisher** Justified is absolutely everything I love about Jay Crownover! Strong characters, some intrigue, some mystery, and a whole lot of sexiness make for a book I just did not want to put down! Case Lawton and Aspen Barlow have known one another since high school. Case was one of the only people who was kind to the new girl in Loveless who happened to march to the beat of her own drum. As any girl would, she developed a crush on the handsome son of the town sheriff. While Aspen fought her own battles with not fitting in, Case was dealing with the fact that his father was as crooked as they come and while he was the sheriff, he wasn't always looking out for the best interest of the townspeople. He wanted out of Loveless as badly as anything, but fate had other plans for him. Years later, Aspen moves back to Loveless, marries and goes to work at her new family's law firm. She happens to run into Case the day he is served with divorce papers and when he has the opportunity to hire her to represent him, instead he insults her. When she is hired by his soon-to-be ex-wife, Aspen become enemy number one because part of what his ex wants is for him to be kept away from their son. It's no secret that Case and Aspen don't get along, so when Aspen is suddenly the victim and needs Case's help since he is now the sheriff, things get interesting. It's clear that Aspen's life is in danger, but the question is who is out to get her? I absolutely loved everything about this book. It grabbed my attention as soon as I started reading and I needed to find out who was behind all that was happening to Aspen. Not to mention the tension, both emotional and physical, that she managed to build between Case and Aspen, it was fantastic. Jay always creates complex characters and these were no exception. If you are a long time reader of her books, some of the characters might seem a little bit familiar as she has managed to give a nod some of her other most well-known series. I am already ready for the next book in the series as I know it's going to be another great trip to Loveless, Texas!

    Another hit from Jay Crownover!

    I've been a huge fan of Jay Crownover since her Marked Men series. I will read anything by her and will probably love it. This one did not disappoint. I read the first in this series, Unbroken, and loved it. What a great introduction to the Lawton family. Case Lawton and his siblings grew up with a deceitful father, who just happened to be the Sheriff of Loveless, Texas. Case had high hopes of leaving the small town but unfortunately, disaster came along. Years later he is handed divorce papers and goes through a nasty divorce, resulting in the loss of custody of his son. He is heartbroken and blames his ex's lawyer...Aspen Barlow. Aspen Barlow moved to Loveless, Texas as a teen from Chicago. Her goth ways made her an outsider and was deemed "Weird Girl" immediately. After getting her law degree, she returns to Loveless and works for her father-in-law. Unfortunately, she has to take Case's ex as her client but she'll do her best to make sure the ex doesn't destroy Case's life completely. This is an enemies to lovers romance with suspense and mystery. Years after his divorce, Case is now the Sheriff and works hard to not be like his father. Someone is out to get Aspen and Case is the only one that can keep her safe. Will he change his opinion of Aspen? Will he be able to solve the mystery of who's trying to harm her? I loved getting to know Case after being introduced to him in a different book, as well as Unbroken. He is a hard man who wants to do right by his community. I also really liked Aspen. She ends up going through a lot and still comes out strong. I'm looking forward to reading more about the Lawton family and those in Loveless, Texas. I received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.

    A Great Weekend Read!

    3.5-4 stars This was a great weekend read! I was sucked in right from the start and didn't want to put it down. I was hesitant to pick it up because I don't often read cowboy romances, but this one felt more small town romance more than anything and I just appreciated the cover for the eye candy it was ;) Justified is an enemies to lovers, forced proximity, suspense, and single parent romance rolled into one. I loved the sparks and sexual tension between Case and Aspen and how the gruff and grumpy sheriff slowly opened his heart. Case is exactly the loyal, protective, alpha hero that I love. I wouldn't have minded a little more groveling on his part though and I did feel that Aspen forgave him very quickly. Also, her strong feelings toward him made sense considering their time together in HS, but Case's feelings seemed to go from hate to love in the blink of an eye. The suspense kept things interesting, but did feel a little over the top at times. I'm really intrigued by Case's little sister, Kody, and a certain Texas Ranger and loved the mysterious vibe. I'm hoping their story will be next! This was my first book by Jay Crownover, and I'm excited to see where this series goes. *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

    4 SUSPENSEFUL AND SEXY STARS!

    We're back in Loveless, Texas and this time we have the pleasure of reading Case Lawton's book. When I first met him in Unbroken I knew he would be trouble, and trouble he was! Justified is a full length novel in Jay Crownover's brand-new Loveless, Texas series. The Lawton siblings bring so much angst to their small little town that I cannot get enough of them! Aspen Barlow has crushed on Case Lawton since her formidable teen years. He was the only one to show her any kindness and offer her friendship. As adults, Aspen is a pitbull in the courtroom and she is assigned to be Becca Lawton's lawyer in a custody battle for Hayes, Case's nine-year old son. When Case loses Hayes, his entire world implodes and he could never forgive Aspen. Eight years later, there is still bad blood between Case and Aspen. The animosity and tension between the pair is so strong you could cut it with a knife. "It seemed like with everything else we did, it was all or nothing. We either loved or hated. We were either in or out. There was no middle ground." Case is now the new sheriff after overruling his father's corruptive reign. With someone in the little town of Loveless wanting Aspen dead, Case must work with her to figure out who is behind it all. Justified had everything you love about a small town. Bonus was the plethora of secondary characters which I need books from ASAP, especially Hill Gamble and a feisty someone I will not name... Also, let's not forget about a certain MC president #drama. Suspenseful and action-packed, Justified is the perfect mix of enemies-to-lovers with a second chance feel. Beyond intriguing and completely captivating, I started and finished this novel in one day. Hands down, it's a must read!

    One of the best from Jay Crownover!

    A thrilling ride that'll leave you breathless! Justified is filled with heated action, and will keep you on the edge of your seat with the plot twists. A suspenseful romance that you'll want to erase from your memory, just so you can read it again for the very first time! I love how fiercely protective Case is of his family, but his obsession with righting the wrong-doings of his corrupt father, make him blind to some truths. When the one person he blames for the loss of custodial rights is a target in a series of threats, he must put his hateful feelings aside in order to close the case and push her back out of his life.
