Blog Tour: Built by Jay Crownover - Review + Giveaway!

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.

Rule, Jay’s first book, was one of my first and favorite New Adult book ever a couple years ago. I am so happy that I have followed her as an author and now she is on her new series, Saints of Denver.

Sayer Cole is content in her lonely life. She loves that she just found her long lost brother and is really happy with their relationship. But she knows something is missing, but she can’t break through her cold heart to find love. Until….Zeb came around. AND SAYER IS A SPUFFY FAN!!!!!! (From Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Zeb is amazing. I love a strong, tattooed man who is great with their hands. ;) He is super patient and takes great care of Sayer. I really enjoyed him and his interaction with another character, whom I can’t talk about since it is a spoiler! He is one of my favorite Jay Crownover boys, right up there with Rule.

The side characters were amazing, especially Rowdy and Zeb’s family. They were so supportive of their family members in times of need. The sexy times were pretty great too!

I am SO EXCITED to read the next book featuring Sayer’s lawyer friend Quaid and Avett, who made appearances in the Marked Men series!

Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: Then there was whatever it was Zeb was doing to me. It felt like a conquering. A victory. A battle fought and won. It felt like he was trying to make it so that I would never be able to kiss anyone else in my life without having to compare it to this moment, to the feel of his hard mouth contrasting with my soft scrape of his bead against my skin.
