From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the next installment in the Saints of Denver series.
Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael’s life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she’s done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that’s become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she’s going hunting for him…even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.
Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it’s time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying.
When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he’s all wrong for you.

BFF K’s Review of Riveted
Riveted was full of all the things I have come to expect from a Jay Crownover story, particularly in this Saints of Denver Series. The characters are fully developed. They have complete backstories and histories that drive who they are and mold the story, but don’t feel like they drag down the pacing of the entire book. There are plenty of steamy scenes and loads of romance from an uber-protective, alpha male.
The settings of Denver and Mississippi are fresh and enhance the storyline. The characters, their personal dramas and shared threats are all endearing and exciting to read. Dixie is sweet, but don’t let the sweetness and light fool you. Although Church refers to her in number of ways that compare her to sunshine, she’s still has no problem laying down the law when it comes to those she loves. Church has had a heartbreaking past that has molded him into the man he is. But, he will have to decide if he can grow up and become the man that Dixie deserves.
Riveted is a solid romance with unique settings, all the feels and some outstanding characters. I’m looking forward to Salvaged, the next book in the Saints of Denver series, but at the same time, I know that I’m definitely not ready for this series to conclude. If you haven’t read the Saints of Denver series, it’s absolutely one to add to your TBR list, and Riveted in particular!
