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.

Jay Crownover is a New York Times bestselling author of several series including: The Welcome to the Point Series, Saints of Denver Series, The Getaway Series and Marked Men Series. She is a Colorado native who is always looking for the next adventure to include in her books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jay Crownover Strikes Again with Charged I absolutely love Jay Crownover as an author! I think her style of writing and the investment in the characters is forever present. The "Marked Men" series is still to this day one of my favourite series I have EVER read (and I tend to read A LOT). I never hesitate to pick them up and reread again; reliving each character's story. Quaid and Avett are no different. Avett intrigued me originally in the Marked Men series so I am so glad that she was able to have her own story to tell. The relationship between her and Quaid is exactly as the cover states: charged. I encourage everyone to read this novel and if you haven't yet, to look into Jay Crownover's other series as well! I can honestly say that her books never dissapoint:)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They know how to handle one another I've read all the books in this series so far. They are fantastic! The characters are so loveable and the stories are so well written. Just a great read and it is always nice to see the Marked Men characters-I enjoy the blending of the series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Review from This is the Story of My(Reading) Life Once again, it is abundantly clear that Charged is a Jay Crownover book. The writing, the story with it's recurring messages and themes, the characters lends itself to the type of book I've come to expect and love from Jay. Avett isn't new to readers. We've seen her pop up, not in the most positive light, throughout The Marked Men Series. She's a troublemaker that is sure to give her dad, Brite, a heart attack. Avett has special gift for falling in with the wrong crowd. This time around it lands her in jail and fearing that her actions have finally hit too close to home. Her boyfriend did try to rob her dad's bar. This is where Quaid comes in. We caught bits of this handsome lawyer in Built as he pursued Sayer. He came off as a conceited player. That probably plays into his persona as one the best criminal attorneys. This is where Avett and Quaid's worlds collide; they clearly don't get off on the right side of the law, but attraction is quickly apparent. Which how could they not eventually act on it, even with heartbreak written in their future. Avett is a tough, no nonsense, I don't deserve forgiveness spark plug of a lady. Her colourful hair along with her attitude sets her apart and ultimately makes her unforgettable. Quaid clearly has a past that has sparked his driven force of nature personality. He's the type of lawyer that you would sell your house to have on your side in the courtroom. Both have pasts that aren't so much as in the past as they'd like. Avett was just a child that found trouble, and that trouble got worse as she got older until what she sees as her actions, thus her fault, caused the unthinkable. So as far as Avett is concerned there's no redemption out there for her. But finding herself in jail, seeing what that does to her parents, Avett isn't ready for it to be the end. Quaid grew up with nothing, but he never wanted to be nothing. A career that can buy him all the material things and a loving wife was all he wanted. At least that's what he thought. Neither of those things could keep his wife around. Quaid thought he was fine. But Avett might just be his salvation. He's lonely and has the means to keep her safe. Keeping her out of jail wasn't the end of Avett's problems. Pain, mess and disorder all seem to be rearing their ugly heads. Because of who Avett is(Brite's daughter), I was excited by the appearances of a few of Jay's past men. The bar is a prominent character from The Marked Men series, and that hasn't changed in Charged. I mean it's the confrontation center for this book and Avett's woes. I also really liked getting to know Brite a bit more. He's this tough biker guy that seems to be full with all the wisdom. And how can you not like him? Avett is a tough cookie to like, unlike her dad. But Jay made it that way. You're hopefully able to warm up to her and finally come to understand her. I had troubles doing that. And it wasn't that Avett's past kept from forgiving her, it's that her journey in Charged felt a little wonky. Everyone and their sister is giving you their hand, take it without so much attitude. Gah. Quaid what a juxtaposition. This hard ass lawyer is really just a confused lonely guy in the inside. Quaid I liked. I understand wanting to be a better person, was his definition of better a little materialistic? Sure, but his childhood negates his understanding. I really just wanted to get him a few good friends to help him out. Avett and Quaid have obvious attraction. Different worlds may be their mantra, but love don't care. But hey, it's always fun to watch the couple try and fight their love. I always know who's going to win that war. The real rub, this was not my favourite of Jay's books. Avett was a piss off that I had a real hard time feeling sorry for. Redemption was not her middle name, ya get me? The relationship between Avett and Quaid was awkward and super forced. I don't think I had one awwww moment. Or even one I thought was hot. Unfortunately Avett and Quaid are now dubbed my last favourite couple of Jay's. Lastly, the therapy like bullshit everyone was spitting out. And I mean everyone. No matter the situation. No matter the moment. It was like one very long therapy session. There wasn't one single joke or humourous moment. Avett would start to play around with Quaid and he would quickly cut it off with a serious conversation. Or vica versa. Really annoying. Charged offered a bit more suspense than past books. Which I think Jay did really well. So not only are you getting this rocky road to romance between two characters who deeply need a person to pull them out of their lives. And just jump into something new; with the added bonus of some thrilling moments. Like mentioned earlier, Charged has Jay's trademark style all over it. And that's never a bad thing. It's why I constantly need to pick up her new book right away; it's comforting, like coming home.
