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.

Jay Crownover is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men series. She will also be introducing the dark and sexy world of The Point in a new series this summer starting with Better When He’s Bad. Like her characters, she is a big fan of tattoos. She loves music and wishes she could be a rock star, but since she has no aptitude for singing or instrument playing, she'll settle for writing stories with interesting characters that make the reader feel something. She lives in Colorado with her three dogs.
We got a little sneaky glance of Salem at the end of Nash, and as well as being one of my favourite character introductions ever, I was intrigued by her instant sass! Salem's back story is interesting and sad, but in a very different way to Rowdy's. When something particularly horrible happened I wanted to hit something. But even with her sass and hidden vulnerability Salem handles it all far better than I ever could.
The two of them together actually made me blush and swoon at the same time - quite an accomplishment. Holy chemistry batman!! I loved how they argued, danced around each other and er...made up. Their banter was off the chart and I think Salem had some of the best one-liners throughout the entire series!
Do we get to see some of our old fav's? Well I'm not going to spoil it for you but I will point out that certain events I had imagined happened, whilst there were several events which I most definitely didn't see coming. I'm looking forward to a certain southern charmer's story up next...
