The New York Times and USA Today bestselling Marked Men series continues with this sizzling, sexy story of love, heartbreak, fate, and second chances.

After the only girl he ever loved told him that he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his boots and set out to live up to his nickname. A good ol’ boy looking for good times and good friends, Rowdy refuses to take anything too seriously, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Burned by love once, he isn’t going to let himself trust a woman again. But that’s before his new co-worker arrives, a ghost from the past who’s suddenly making him question every lesson he ever learned.

Salem Cruz grew up in house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn’t wait to forget. But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her; the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who’d been head over heels in love with her little sister.

Now, fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I have been following Jay from the start. She really has been quite inspirational to me. She appeared on the scene without much pomp-a-do and she blew it out the water with Rule.

I am a fan.

I will read whatever she writes.

She is such a humble person and her crew are addictive to read.

Rowdy, is such a great guy. I have been waiting for his book and to see what he had downstairs even though a little birdie told me quite sometime ago what he was sporting. But head above the belt, I just wanted to meet him and see what made him tick.

Salem, makes him tick.

She is a great gal and we see behind the colorful personality. She has a lot to offer and she wants to offer it to Rowdy.

He’s been hurt and out to sow his wild oats.

Enter Salem.

Then enter Poppy.

Rowdy has his insecurities and hang ups which he must wade through.

"I don’t care about someone, attach myself to someone, when they’re just going to leave me in the end.” 

Salem has such an interesting choice of name, considering the occupation her father has. I can’t help thinking of Salem witch trials, yet in Arabic it means Peace and in Muslim it means, safe, secure, free, which really does sum her character up, once she stopped running and grounded herself. 

I loved seeing Rule and the crew popping up and am looking forward to some Asa and Royal. How interesting would these two be as a couple!!

Loved the new characters brought into the mix. Read and you shall meet them. One, me thinks is a bit of a wild child, the other, a nice connection. I am being cryptic.

Another awesome installment from Jay, which keeps me coming back for more...always.

I really liked this quote from Rowdy.

"I know it all feels less like something that’s going to be easy and a good time and more like something I have to work my way through. I also know feeling all that scares the living shit out of me."

I am looking forward to Asa’s story especially with what went on in this one.

Bring. It . On.
