From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes an electrifying new spin-off series,Saints of Denver, featuring all the characters fans have been dying to read about.
Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk, he’s all denim and flannel.
Zeb’s wanted the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her. It doesn't matter how many smooth moves he makes, the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest—either that or she doesn't return it. Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior.
But just as things start to heat up, Zeb is blindsided by a life altering moment from his past. He needs Sayer’s professional help to right a wrong and to save more than himself. He can’t risk what’s at stake just because his attraction to Sayer feels all consuming. But as these opposites dig in for the fight of their lives, battling together to save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide can no longer be ignored.
I received a copy of Built for an honest review.
I am such a MONUMENTAL fan of Jay Crownovers books since Rule the very first book in the Marked Men series. I knew Built was going to be fantastical, but I had no idea how much of an understatement that was.
Most of the characters we meet in this story are carried over from the Marked Men series. Sayer is Rowdy’s older sister and Zeb is one of Rowdy’s best friends. I absolutely loved Built for more than just the fantastical writing. Since Saints of Denver is a new spin-off series, I was happier not hearing about some of my favorite characters than I was in the Marked Men series. The Saints of Denver was a fresh start and a whole new look at the amazing characters.
Sayer has had a hard life living with her father who gave her no love and constant rejection. Her mother hasn’t been in the picture for a long time and all Sayer knows is to push people away and shut down. When Zeb needs her help with…something I won’t share since that would ruin the surprise, Sayer wants their relationship to stay professional, but Zeb is very persistent and isn’t taking no for an answer (not in a terrible way, but in a very HOT way). Zeb’s whole life changed when he was sent to jail for protecting his sister and her daughter. He’s learned his lesson that every action has a consequence and all he wants now is for Sayer to be apart of his life.
I LOVE Sayer and Zeb, they are absolutely amazing are right up there on my favorites list with Rule and Shaw. I haven’t loved characters this much in a long time. Sayer’s is such a strong woman who despite her terrible past overcomes her fears and is able to become a stronger woman despite all of the hurt she’s gone through. Zeb is an ubber sexy lumberjack who seriously has me rethinking my thoughts on beards. Zeb while a total bad bottom is one of the most caring men ever. He just wants to protect his family and Sayer and would do anything to do that. I liked that Zeb was strong enough to help Sayer realize who she was by pushing her, but also being the best guy ever. I seriously have a mega crush on Zeb for he is the bomb diggidy.
Built was a fantastic story with so many surprises and heart wrenching moments I was physically unable to put this story down for even a moment. I read Built in one sitting. Built is one of the best stories I have ever read and one the best by Jay Crownover ever. It’s completely magnificent.
If you love hot guys with beards, stories with strong women, sexy sexy sexy hot times, and great writing you will want to get in on this story. The pacing is fantastic, I never felt like the story dragged in any areas.
I cannot thank the publishers enough for sending me a copy of Built early! I will love you for always.
And to Jay Crownover: Keep being awesome.
And don’t miss the previous novella in The Saints of Denver Series!
