“It’s always been you even when I didn’t want it to be, even when it broke my heart over and over again. It’s just always been you.”
Jay Crownover, Rule

“Here’s my heart Shaw. You have it in your hands and I promise you’re the first and last person to ever touch it. You need to be careful with it because it’s far more fragile than I ever thought and if you try and give it back I’m not taking it. I don’t know enough about love to know for sure that’s what this between us is, but I know that for me it’s you and only you from here on out and I can only promise to be careful and not push you away again. Life without you in it is doable, but if I have a choice I want to do it with you by my side and I’m telling you I’m not running away from the work it takes to make that happen. Shaw I’m not scared of us anymore.”
Jay Crownover, Rule

“Opposites don't just attract they freaking catch fire and burn the entire city down1”

Grace OMG! What is the Saints of Denver series??? More tattoos? more romance?


Kimberly Treamer Just finished and found Rowdy's book absolutely amazing! Well done, yet again! Looking forward to Asa's book next... will anyone else be getting a continuation here, maybe Zeb & Sayer...


Sheilaa93 Hi! Thanks for adding me! I absolutely loved Rowdy's book! And as I was reading it, I realized that I miss soooooo much the other couples a lot. I wish I could read about Rule and Shaw's, Rome and Cora's news we read in Rowdy's, etc., from their point of view... So, is there any possibility about a second book about every couple o something like a book about all of them? I loved them so much and I'm not ready to see them in just a few pages in every book cause every character you created is unique and special... Marked Men is so special, and Welcome to The Point is also amazing. Thanks for all your work and I hope there would be a lot more books to come! And I hope both series to be published in spanish! :)


message 92: by Sabrina

Sabrina Hey thanks for adding me! I just wanted to tell you that your books are amazing. I read Rule, Jet, Rome and Nash each in a day and had such a book hangover. I can not wait to read Rowdy and Asa's stories. Like everyone else I am in love with these characters and your ability to tell their stories.

I'm currently reading Better When He's Bad, and I dread finishing it because I know I'm going to have a nasty book hangover!

You are amazing and please continue doing what you are doing!!


message 91: by Allison

Allison Thanks for adding me! I absolutely loved Nash and Saint's story. Your characters are so relatable, and I'm pretty sure I still have a crush on Rule 3 books later. I cannot wait for Rowdy's story, the set up seems pretty awesome!

All any of us can be is the best version of ourselves we can. I'm proud of you. Own your freakness...though I'm sure you're probably like me and really all that means is you have a few quirks that make you fun and unique. No one gets to decide for you how you're going to live your life and what your going to be about...you get to make that call and own it no matter how it turns out in the end! I wrote Saint the way I did because I think all women have been her at one point in time. Fear and hesitation can cost us everything and overcoming it can give us everything!

Marie Andersson Hi Jay! I love Nash and Saint's story! I really like Saint.She has flaws like a real human being.:) I can relate to her being shy and unsure of her feelings. She doesn't want to get hurt again.Nash is a sweetheart and he is good for her!:) You make me proud beeing who I am.Some people think I'm a freak but I don't care anymore.I just want to go my own way and not be a copy.I like that Rule and the others are not afraid of what others think.:) So Thank you again, Jay!:))

Lol..I love this...thank you. It really kinda makes my day to see something like this from a reader. It fulfils a part of my writer soul. I remember a green eyed brunette...still have to work her in somewhere. Don't forget I have Bax coming out in June before ROwdy...trust me you don't want to miss the new crew. They'll turn the world on end!!

Donna Sweeney Hi Jay, just a quick bow to your awesomeness !! Damm girl,I recently finished Nash's book a few days ago and seriously I was like a women possessed from start to finish eating it up !!.
The books just keep getting better - actually No....bite my tongue off Donna....THEY ARE ALL AS FANTASTIC AS EACH OTHER !!!.
You seriously know how to write swoon worthy, badass hunks and cool leading ladies. I am dribbling now for Rowdy's book. Then I sigh and just carn't wait for Asa's (breath Donna, breath !!).
Just wanted to let you know that your literary brilliance is VERY much appreciated by moi in the UK and your books should come with a "fan yourself ladies these guys are way too HOT !" warning. ;0)
P.S - Keep in mind the green eyed, brown hair chick in one of your books (no pressure, cough, cough) and that would send me nuclear !!!
Take it easy LOL Donna x.

Donna Sweeney Hi again Jay, I am sooooooo happy now. Your word will be law (so to speak & I will watch with baited breath). Write as soon as your devine inspiration strikes about one glorious brunette with green eyes that rocks some huba huba's world !!!. Hell yeah baby !! Also, I am sure that if the new gal' for Asa & Rowdy are (sort of somehow) part of Nash's book then.......here's hoping they will be in the medical profession, maybe nurses too & whaddya know I am a nurse !! soooooo bonus all round ;0) giddy, giddy xxx later Donna x

I'll have to keep a green eyed brunette in mind. Maybe I'll work a gal that looks like that I to the new series ;)

Just sayin brown/green combo could totally work !!.....worth a try ;0). Jay, your Marked Men series ROCKS !!! bye from the UK LOL Donna x
