Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling 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 by 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.

I Was Riveted!

I confess that I've never read/ listened to a Crownover book I haven't loved. And this is no different. Church was a man of mystery in previous books that I was dying to know more about, but Dixie was a background character I hadn't really paid attention to. Church and Dixie's love story was completely unexpected and perfect all at the same time. The chemistry was undeniable. With the touch of mystery, some action and even more sexy time, I was riveted.

I listened to Riveted on audiobook and I loved it! Bassett's voice brought life to Church's character. It felt authentic with the distinct dialect and sexy southern drawl. Wyles' sweet voice matched Dixie's lovable and caring persona. The narration was absolute perfection.

I review for Guilty Indulgence Review Site.

Ahhhhhhmazing!

Audiobooks are my crack and this one sent me over the edge. The story is of course excellent as Jay Crownover wrote it. Her characters are always vivid and real. Relatable and endearing.
Add the beautifully deep and rumbley voice of Sean Bassett as Church and ugh I don't even have words; the thought of him melts my brain cells.
Stephanie Wyles upbeat, light and energetic voice was the perfect contrast for Dixie.
Listen to this book!
If you haven't read the others please look Jay Crownover up on Goodreads and start at the beginning. You'll be missing out if you don't go on the entire journey with this wonderful cast of characters.

Dixie and Church...

What did you like best about Riveted? What did you like least?

I like that HEA that Dixie and Church find; and that Church realizes that he's worth loving.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dixie has been in love with the ex-soldier Church, since he came to work at Brite's bar. She is the bubbly, happy bar waitress who loves Church, but decides to get on with her life without him by using various dating sites, without much luck!

What three words best describe Stephanie Wyles and Sean Bassett ’s performance?

Deep, peppy and sometimes hard to decipher what character was talking when Sean or Stephanie were speaking the other's character.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Church has a lot of pent-up feelings that he needed to express. The book had so much internal dialog that it got to be a little too much for me.

Any additional comments?

It was a good read.

One sitting listen

This was one I could not turn off. Church has always been the sexy man of mystery that I just had to know more about and I was not disappointed.

Dixie was always kind of a background character so I didn't know if I was going to connect with her but I totally did. She is just a normal, independent girl that is trying to live up to her family's history of finding Mr Right, knowing right away and living happy ever after. The problem is, her Mr Right is the ever elusive Church. He is dark and broody and quiet and mysterious. Never letting anyone in until he needs a favor from Dixie that she just can't say no to.

You throw in a lot of action and intrigue, tons of panty melting sexy times and the sweetest romance and you have Church and Dixie. This audio flew by as I held my breath to find out if those 2 would pull it together. Start to finish, perfection.

SEAN BASSETT! SEAN BASSETT! How do I even explain the perfection that his voice brought to Church's character. I don't think I could ever take to pages and read this book knowing that Sean Bassett's voice could be narrating this book for me. His southern drawl and deep, rough timber made him the absolute perfect fit. Stephanie Wyles had to step up in order to equal out the level of talent from Sean and she totally pulled it off. She made a perfect Dixie, turning an everyday girl into a character full of heart and love.

Another Masterpiece

Beautiful! The characters, the story... Jay can seriously whip up a fantastic recipe for romance! She's created a few of my very favorite (non)Heroes of all time. (Hello, Bax! I would sell my soul to Satan just to have you materialize right in front of me)
And now Church!
*sigh*
He's broody, hard, broken, protective and sexy.
Seriously, what's not to love? Because I did. I loved every word written about him.
Dixie:
Dixie was fun. She reminded me of myself. I've survived too many of life's blows to count, and we both just keep on smiling. That's her. She's peppy, positive and selfless.

The drama is light. There isn't any cheating, no OW/OM (besides one date that Dixie is on in the very beginning of the story). No frustrating misunderstandings. Dixie isn't a runner. Quite the opposite, actually.

Now, I'd just like to point out that the steam factor was OFF THE CHARTS!! This is, by far, Jay's hottest book in the bedroom (and out of it) department. Seriously.
Jay, Girl, You knocked it outta the park.
And A BILLION STARS, every single star in the sky, is given for the narration. Honestly, Church's voice had me walking into furniture, nearly slicing off my fingers while cooking. I highly recommend you don't listen while driving. That voice reading sexy scenes is dan-ger-ous!
*phew*

Arghhhh.. these narrators

What could Jay Crownover have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I don't know.. This book was heading in the same internal monologue as the first in the series. So disappointing.

What didn’t you like about Stephanie Wyles and Sean Bassett ’s performance?

I just can't listen to them.. arghh..

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Riveted?

I didn't finish it.

Too introspective and repetitive not much of a story

I have loved Jay's books, but this one and honor have been so boring. The characters spend too much time in their heads. I like when there is more interaction between others. It makes the story more interesting. Listening to someone repeat essentially the same thoughts over and over does not make for good anything. Couldn't finish this one or honor.
