This can also be seen in her many series, as they have all gained a following of their own, allowing the reader to become intoxicated in her world. The series ‘Saints of Denver’ is a great example of this, as it features romances, with woman having their eye on men and the difficulties that they must overcome.

Running for four books in total, lasting from 2016 to 2017, it would be a spin-off series from the previous ‘Marked Men’ franchise also from Jay Crownover. There would also be an earlier novella released in 2015 titled ‘Leveled’ that would precede the first full book, ‘Built’, released in 2016. This would make an entire new series published in a relatively short amount of time, as Crownover writes with confidence, knowing exactly where she wants to take it at all times.

Built

First published through the ‘William Morrow Paperbacks’ publishing house, this is the first instalment in the ‘Saints of Denver’ series. Originally published on the 5th of January in 2016, it would introduce a new set of characters, whilst also bringing in a self contained romance story. It would also manage to set itself apart from the ‘Marked Man’ series, which this collection is a spin-off from.

Working as a clear romance novel, this manages to immediately capture the attention of the reader, holding it there intently throughout. The characters are interesting and well drawn, taking them beyond two-dimensional personalities, giving them a fully rounded approach. The location is also well painted too, giving the reader a clear idea of the world that they are in and inhabit, and what it means to them.

Feeling frozen inside, Sayer Cole feels like she is dead to the world, as it appears that nobody can melt her heart, leaving her to think that there’s nobody out there for her.

After protecting his family sent him to jail, he has attempted to rebuild his life and construction business, as his new client Sayer makes him feel rough himself in all of her elegance.

What will become of them as they discover what they’ve built?

Charged

Released in 2016 on the 24th of May not long after the first novel, this continues on in much the same vein as before. Giving the reader more of what they have now come to expect from the series, it really delivers on its core concept, taking it forwards in the process. This isn’t to say that there aren’t plenty of twists and turns along the way, as Crownover constantly surprises the whole time. The book would be later followed up in 2017 with the novel Riveted, along with the fourth novel Salvaged in 2017 as well.

Avett Walker is someone who clearly has a penchant for trouble, after finding herself needing help, after once again getting in to bother. That’s when she turns to the high-powered lawyer Quaid Jackson, as she feels this handsome individual is completely out of her league. Wanting him to loosen up a bit, she feels a deep yearning for him, as she really wants him to let loose with her. Despite not typically taking on clients like her, something about her intrigues him, as he attempts to keep their relationship strictly professional at all costs. Can Quaid help defend Avett with her case? Will they be able to keep their feelings for one another in check? What will happen when they find themselves both charged?

The Saints of Denver Series

As a romance series, this is one franchise that definitely knows what it’s doing throughout, as Crownover expertly crafts her stories and characters. Fully understanding exactly when to bring the tension up and when to take it down, she clearly conveys the passion upon each every page at all times. The characters are easy to empathize with too, as they manage feel wholly real throughout, giving the readers a clear idea of who they are and what they want. Whilst it hits many of the staples of the genre, it also takes some interesting twists of its own, as Crownover places her own unique flourish on the stories. Leaving the reader always constantly wanting more, this is a series that will clearly be around for a long time yet, with its highly addictive and ever entertaining world.
