Book Review – Charged by Jay Crownover

Goodreads Summary

Avett Walker and Quaid Jackson’s worlds have no reason to collide. Ever. Quaid is a high powered criminal attorney as slick as he is handsome. Avett ischarged a pink-haired troublemaker with a bad attitude and a history of picking the wrong men.

When Avett lands in a sea of hot water because of one terrible mistake, the only person who can get her out of it is the insanely sexy lawyer. The last thing on earth she wants to do is rely on the no-nonsense attorney who thinks of her as nothing more than a nuisance. He literally has her fate in his hands. Yet there is something about him that makes her want to convince him to loosen his tie and have a little fun…with her.

Quaid never takes on clients like the impulsive young woman with a Technicolor dye job. She could stand to learn a hard lesson or two, but something about her guileless hazel eyes intrigues him. Still, he’s determined to keep their relationship strictly business. But doing so is becoming more impossible with each day he spends with her.

As they work side-by-side, they’ll have to figure out a way to get along and keep their hands off each other—because the chemistry between them is beyond charged.

Review  

Charged is the story of Avett Walker, a 22 year old woman who continually makes bad decisions and gets herself into trouble.  When she goes to court after being arrested, she meets her new lawyer, Quaid Jackson, whom she is instantly attracted to.  Quaid is an uptight lawyer with some serious baggage of his own.

I have read a lot of reviews and some folks didn’t like Avett.  I liked her a lot.  She took responsibility for her bad decisions and owns up to them.  Unfortunately for her, she doesn’t believe she is worthy of any forgiveness.

Quinn and Avett are as different as two people can be.  Avett has pink hair and a no-nonsense attitude.  Quaid is very uptight – for reasons that are explained and make him even more sympathetic as a character.

We see a lot of the guys from the Marked Men series, which I haven’t read, but no I plan to.  I didn’t love the ending of this book (it was about 20 pages of sex), but overall, it was a good read, and I will continue to read on.

Happy reading.

Charged by Jay Crownover.  One of these days I’m going to read the Marked Men series.  I haven’t gotten there yet.  But I really liked Built and I’m liking Charged as well.charged

What I recently finished

Axel by Megan O’Brien.  The third book in the Ride series, which I didn’t know existed until a few weeks ago, was great.  I love her alpha males.  I recommend this series.

I plan to read Mackenzie Fire by Elle Casey unless I can get my hands on Grin and Beard it by Penny Reid.  But it’s one of those two for sure.

What I’m currently reading

Axel by Megan O’Brien.  I just found out that there are two new books out in this series, so I was all over it.  This is an MC book with some uber alpha males.  I really liked the first two books in the series, and this book is really good so far.

What I recently finished

Just finished the Last Call series by Sawyer Bennett.  Book 5 was Shaken, Not Stirred.  You can see my full review here.  I also tried reading A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin, but I can’t get into it (and I freaking LOVE the show).

What I plan to read next

I think I’m going to read Charged by Jay Crownover.  I really liked Built, and I’m excited to read this one.  And I’m super excited because the second book in the Winston Brothers series is coming out Tuesday (yeah!!!).
