Jay Crownover's New York Times and USA Today best-selling Marked Men series continues with the much anticipated story of Southern charmer and certified criminal Asa Cross.
Starting over in Denver with a whole new circle of friends and family, Asa Cross struggles with being the man he knows everyone wants him to be and the man he knows he really is. A leopard doesn't change its spots, and Asa has always been a predator. He doesn't want to hurt those who love and rely on him, especially one luscious arresting cop who suddenly seems to be interested in him for far more than his penchant for breaking the law. But letting go of old habits is hard, and it's easy to hit bottom when it's the place you know best.
Royal Hastings is quickly learning what the bottom looks like after a tragic situation at work threatens not only her career but her partner's life. As a woman who has only ever had a few real friends, she's trying to muddle through her confusion and devastation all alone. Except she can't stop thinking about the sexy Southern bartender she locked up. Crushing on Asa is the last thing she needs, but his allure is too strong to resist. His long criminal record can only hurt her already shaky career, and chasing after a guy who has no respect for the law or himself can only end in heartbreak.
A longtime criminal and a cop together just seems so wrong...but for Asa and Royal, being wrong together is the only right choice to make.

This is the last book in the Marked Men series and it was a satisfying ending. This series isn't high brow literature, but they're fun reads and the narration is better than average. This particular story line didn't interest me as much as some of the previous books (Rule, Rome, Rowdy and Nash) and the names started to get just a little bit ridiculous. Still, it was an enjoyable few hours and worth a listen if you've read the rest of the series.
His ability to finally forgive himself!
Romance, past characters, Asa, Asa, Asa
Asa by far!
Asa.. He is beautiful inside and out
Narration was amazing!!!
Loved this final installment to the series. Both characters were interesting and so filled with love. This book had the perfect amount of angst and drama but fun too.
Jay your work is stunning and beautiful. Thank you for that awesome story and we thank you for sharing it with us, your readers. Cheers. Great read.
I love all the Marked Men books and this last one was just as good as all the others. Great narration and great characters. I love Jay Crownover's writing. I have listen to all the books in the series and have not been disappointed once. Can't wait for the Saints of Denver series!!!!!
This book was, to me, by far the best in the series. I loved the troubled and reluctantly reformed Asa and respected the strength of his heroine. The characters were enthralling and the story was interesting while pulling together all the pieces of this charming series. I liked the sexual sizzle in "Asa". It was better than the other installments also. Add to that the expert narration and this book, and series, are a win-win.
