From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the next installment in the Saints of Denver series.
Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael's life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she's done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that's become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she's going hunting for him...even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it's time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying. When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he's all wrong for you.
What I thought about Riveted
Dashel Churchill... let's just start with that name! It's a big name and Church definitely lives up to it! He's that perfect mix of mixed up and buffed up that made me just want to hug him. I love that about Jay Crownover's hero's -- they have a vulnerability that draws you in right away. Rome's bouncer ends up returning home to Mississippi after many years of staying away. He's convinced he's bad luck and more. He's told his family a girl is keeping him in Denver, and they want to meet her.
Dixie has had it bad for Church for some time. When he asks her to go back home with him, she knows it could destroy her. She wants it. It was refreshing to have the heroine really want the guy even though she knows it's going to end in disaster, but Dixie is lets her heart rule and I liked that about her. She can't give up the chance to be with Church anyway she can have him, and she's a really nice person, so she agrees to help him out.
I loved Dixie's character and the way she viewed life. Both Dixie and Church aren't new to the game of life, but when it comes to love, it's new territory and
it takes a very serious situation to make these two really see what they mean to each other. It's a very exciting conclusion to the story.
I like this series.
