Jet (Marked Men #2) by Jay Crownover

Ayden Cross is determined to leave her past behind her. She knows what she wants and is determined to get it – a future based on security and stability and the opposite of everything she left behind her in Kentucky.

Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy come to life – tall, dark, sexy as sin, covered in tats, clad in leather and skin tight pants, and the ability to transfix every person in a room when he performs.

When the two of them meet, the chemistry between them is undeniable. Jet makes Ayden want to forget about her best laid plans, the plans that she doesn’t really want, but thinks she should. Terrified of losing everything she worked so hard for and getting burned by Jet, Ayden keeps her defenses up and refuses to let Jet in.

Ayden makes the fire inside of Jet bearable and centers him in a way that no one else ever has. The closer he gets to Ayden, the more he falls, but she has built up walls that Jet just can't seem to get through. Jet is dealing with his own demons, and when push comes to shove, he walks away rather than staying and fighting.

Fear, insecurity, and family drama drive the two of them apart and threaten their chance at a happily ever after. Making it work will require them both to let go of what they thought they wanted and needed to be happy, and realizing that all they really need is each other.

Do yourself a favor and pick this one up ASAP!! I loved Rule, but I love, love, love Jet! He is definitely worthy of book boyfriend status. I mean, who wouldn't want a sexy rock god who burns with a fiery passion? Sign me up! He is the ultimate fantasy – tats, leather, talent, passion – with a beautifully compassionate heart. I also really liked Ayden. Usually the female characters in these novels tweak my nerves a bit, but I totally related to Ayden. I understood her and why she did the things that she did, and I totally think that she and I could be friends.

While there is no major cliffhanger, the ending is open enough that there could be a sequel, something that I would gladly devour. I am also looking forward to the next book in the series featuring Rome and Cora. I have a feeling that it will be a good one. I hope that Rowdy and Nash get their own books too. I love this motley crew of characters and how they are so much more than outward appearances. Jay Crownover is an excellent writer and I love how she weaves the male and female perspectives together so that you get to see into the heads of both characters. She has quickly become one of my new favorite authors and I can't wait to see what’s coming next.


Coming soon…

Rome (Marked Men #3) – expected release January 2014

Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon. 

Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .
