Jay Crownover is going out with a bang!
REVIEW INSERTED BELOW
Ah, the feeling of an "ERA" (as Jay calls it) ending.
ASA AND ROYAL SURELY MADE EVERYTHING WORTH IT!
This wrap up for the series is definitely what you need to make your reading life brighter!
Cheers to Marked Men fans!
Cheers to the next readers of this series!
Cheers to the next series!!!
One thing that I just have to say about this book: IT'S DAMN EXPLOSIVE!!!
I have been a big, big, big LIKE REALLY BIG fan of The Marked Men series and I must say... I have never anticipated a book in this series as much as I did ASA. An ex-criminal and a cop (A WOMAN COP AT THAT), how more interesting could you get??!!
Okay, let me make this quick because if I blabber on, you'll never get to reading the book! Haha!
ASA - He's THE HOTTIE. As in he's hot, he's smooth and he talks with his eyes as well as his lips. I swear he's the smoothest marked men in the talk department and come onnnn, he's the eye candy too! Well, I already anticipated that. What I didn't anticipate is how good he'll be with his words, not just for the women, but also to everyone he meets. I like how humble life has made him. I like how he appreciate every single thing that he gets because he works hard. I like how he was able to turn his life around for the better. Lastly, I like it that he tries to be the better person. Sadly, that trait of his also frustrates me. Haha! I can't give out why. READ IT!!! ^__^
Okay, so we got the goodie Asa,
Now we move on to our baddie, Royal.
ROYAL - The name fits alright! You know when in books or movies, Royalties are expected to be oh-so-good, then sometimes they just want to be bad? It's like that for Royal. Well, she doesn't really want to be the bad kind of bad.. maybe just a little naughty. Anyway, I never expected Royal to be so... forward. It's refreshing! I like how Royal works. She's feisty and she doesn't beat around the bush. She wants something, she asks for it straight on and she never backs down. She's beautiful, but she doesn't care for that at all. She's like your girl next door, only with a gun. I love how she likes her job and I love how she doesn't see Asa as the bad ex-criminal. She sees Asa as the person who wants to have a better future, one who's trying to make up for the past. I like that most about her.
When they finally, finally get together.. I kid you not, it's explosive and it's everything more than I ever expected. I love how they care about one another and I love just how sweet they are!
Their story might not be a fairy tale, but it surely made me feel swoony. Asa deserves a medal for being good and Royal deserves one too for catching such an awesome guy!
The dilemma in this book made me stop and think though. What if I'm in their situation? What would I do and how would I feel about it? I decided that Asa's and Royal's decision are both sound and I think I'll do the same thing. Hah! You don't know what I'm talking about just yet... but you will, trust me.. you will!
Okay... so to wrap this up... I'm giving this 5 stars!! I'm also committing this series in my memory as well as in my heart. I will always, always love this series. Definitely one of the best. What a way to go, Jay! WHAT. A. WAY. TO. GO!!!! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
