There isn't a book from Jay Crownover that I didn't enjoy.I love her stories and her writing is addictive!Shelter was another great story!It's about forgiveness and love. Sutton and Emrys are so broken but also they are strong and determined.

"Your heart's bruised, too, Em. It's sore and tired of being kicked around. Give me a shot to take care of it. I'll do my best to trust you with the pieces of mine you've been collecting from the start. You found them, it's only fair to keep them."

“I never realized my heart was looking for shelter. A place that would harbor it safe and sound for all those complicated emotions. “

We do love our cowboys and we sure are devouring the Getaway Series by Jay Crownover, starting with Retreat and now Shelter. Each book has been a hit, providing emotion, passion and suspense.

“We’ve been on a collision course from day one. We were always going to crash into one another.”

I love the authors who ditch the ordinary for the extraordinary, who take risks in their writing, who deliver the different to readers. Every time I open a book by Jay Crownover, I know it’s going to be a voyage into unchartered territory. Just like all of Jay Crownover’s other out-of-the box books, Shelter is UNIQUE, UNPREDICTABLE, and UTTERLY BRILLIANT. The Getaway series continues to be
This series is just THE BEST! I’ve never met a Jay Crownover romance I didn’t like, so I was INCREDIBLY EXCITED to dive into the next book in her amazing Getaway Series! Sutton Warner and Emrys Santos are our main characters and they are just a mess! Broken, beaten inside and out, these two have been through hell and they’ve never figured out how to heal. When our determined heroine finally finds out how, she travels back to the “scene of the crime” and pushes our stubborn as sin hero to face th ...more

This book starts off intense with the history that Sutton and Emrys share.
You can’t help but feel for them and all the suffering they have to go through. Their story isn’t for the faint of heart it is rough and raw and takes a toll on both of them.

Healing isn’t easy no matter the attraction; I very much enjoyed Sutton and his gruff ways. My heart hurt for him being who he is he doesn’t like weakness and he has to hit bottom before he can become the man he wants to be.

I haven't read the first book, Retreat (even though I bought it when it first came out) however this did not affect my reading of Shelter.

Boy, what a ride. Sutton and Emrys' story is not always an easy one to read (not the writing, the content). However right from their devastating start, I was hooked.

As I was reading, Taylor Dane's song "Shelter" ran through my head quite often, and it really is the them song of our lovelies relationship.

Breathe in, breathe out. Man, this book was beyond what I could probably say as one of the wildest rides I’ve ever read in my life. It was definitely a difficult and painful tale to take in, but will no doubt cling to your heart and soul long after you’ve set the book down. This is yet just another proof of what I truly adore about Jay Crownover and her writing—she pushes you to the edge of your limits, but she also knows exactly where to draw the line. It certainly makes for an incredibly memor ...more

Review by Trinette Dungee

Cy Warner is the older Warner brother. He’s protective, no nonsense and headstrong. People fear and respect him. Lane is the youngest Warner brother. He’s laid back, easy going and always with a smile. He’s the one people like to talk to. Then there’s Sutton. He the classic middle child, he goes with the flow, makes the best of whatever situation is thrown his way. Basically he tries to keep everyone happy, he’s ultimate people pleaser.

This series only gets better and better. I started Shelter knowing that it was going to be hard to put down and knowing my feels would be going all over the place. And you know what? I was right. Once I started this book, I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. You don’t have time to be bored in this book as there is always something happening.

Emrys and Sutton both have a lot of issues to solve due to the events from Retreat (hint, go read

I received an Advanced Reader Copy, in exchange for an honest review. Review and blog tour can be found on *Milky Way of Books*

I really liked how the story moved from one couple to the other. There is a good flow in this series that takes you from one troubled pair to the next. I liked Sutton's and Emrys's story. Both have emotional scars and fears and both try to deal with every way they can. One with the wrong way and the other with the hardest but good one. There is no backtracking with this
Loved this book! Fantastic characters and lots of sexy times, angst, and a bit of mystery and suspense. I really enjoyed this story and can't wait for the next book in this series! ...more

It happens to the best of us sometimes. We get into a reading funk, where nothing we start, keeps us reading with excitement until the very last page. I'll even be honest, I haven't had the urge to write a review in months. But give me a book by Jay Crownover. Any book. A poem, an article, a newsletter. I'm on it. Immediately. I will not hesitate to drop whatever I'm doing to dive into her characters.

Excellent Second Book in Series. Probably best to read this in order but you could read it as a standalone.
Sutton and Emrys went through a hideously traumatic experience together. It broke both of them for a while but maybe meeting up and healing together is the answer. Sutton is reluctant. Emrys is determined. Together they will either crash and burn or they will rise above all that has happened and come out of it stronger.
Great secondary characters. Dark themes but mi

Emrys and Sutton lived a horrible situation in the past. It was told in the first book. They were kidnapped by some drug dealers and they were hurt.
After that, Sutton felt guilty because he hadn't protected Emerys as he would have liked. So, he can't stand being near her. And his life becomes a chaos.
But Emrys is not willing to forget the strong connection she feels with this man. So she comes back to Wyoming.
They are affected by another situation concerning Sutton's ex. And everything become

As a longtime fan of Jay Crownover, I always look forward to each new release. After the harrowing climax at the end of Retreat, however, I was particularly anxious to return to The Getaway Series for Emrys and Sutton’s story. The cowboy and the city girl didn’t part on the best terms, leaving unresolved feelings and unfinished business between them. In Shelter, the two are reunited in the Wyoming wilderness with more adventure and romance in store for them. Theirs is a love story that’s heartbr ...more

Jay Crownover is a master of her craft. I have read and loved everything she has written. She is one of my favorite authors and Shelter is another example as to why.

After reading Retreat we can imagine what might be in store for these characters. A story of pain, of healing, and perhaps of forgiveness. Fast paced and full of action, mystery, tender moments, and some seriously steamy scenes. I am so in love with these characters and the emotional rollercoaster they took me on.

There really isn't a Jay Crownover book that I haven't loved, her writing is always on point and always manages to grab my attention from the get go.

In Shelter, Sutton and Em are trying to come to terms with the events that brought them together in the past, these events affected them deeply and this book is about them finding solace, comfort and love with one another, but apart from the love story we get to see the inner workings of a wonderful family and how they alwa

As I was reading it, I said to myself, "This is why I love to read." It was full of angst done right and beautifully. Sutton is a train wreck that I fell for.

Sutton and Em have gone through so much and the struggle continues. Everyone goes through something in their life. How you handle it and the people that are there for you will speak volumes of how you come out of that rough patch. Sutton and Em are each other’s shelter from the bad.
Your heart breaks for Daye and what she has to go through at such a young age.
The bad guy becomes pretty clear at one point, but I didn’t understand the why yet.

Sutton and Emrys are two characters who simply need each other to move on from their shared past, and when they finally realize it, it is a wonderful thing.

I never realized my heart was looking for shelter. A place that would harbor it safe and sound for all those complicated emotions.

This was one of those journeys where each character has as much to learn as the other and the road they have to travel is not an easy one. I loved watching them work to heal themselves and the other.

Shelter was a lot. It was... I felt tense like 85% of the book and half was because these two were steamy as fuck and also because this book just stressed me out.

Sutton was a quiet man when we met him in Retreat, and then he left for half of it so we didn't really see much of him. But Em was this excited, headstrong woman and when all the shit went down and you saw these two characters at their worst and I was so excited for their story.

As usual with Jay's books i have a little time adjusting to her writing, because there's not a lot of dialogues, very big paragraph and overall very dense.

Once i got used to it i enjoyed it better than the fisrt one. It felt also a little more twisted and somber but i'm glad there wasn't too much drama between them.

Overall i had a good time and i was really into it.

Sutton is a complicated man, with some deep stuff going on but he can be so sweet, “you tell me what you need and I’ll do my best to give it to you, Em. That’s about all I can promise.” I brushed my lips across hers and felt them tremble. “I’m gonna go check on Daye and then put you to bed.” Sutton is always willing to go that extra mile with his girl, "...his weight pressed my back into the mattress and his eyes blazed into mine as he growled, “You got one more to give me, Em?” I loved this boo ...more

Sutton and Emrys have a history that starts in the first book in the series, but is recapped at the beginning of this one, so even if you haven't read the first (you should, by the way) you will easily be able to follow the story. There are definitely spoilers from the first story in this, so I would suggest reading them in order, but you don't have to in order to fully enjoy this story.
