Tell Me About It
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the second installment in the Saints of Denver series featuring a bad girl and a by the book attorney who could be her salvation...or her ruin.

Avett Walker and Quaid Jackson’s worlds have no reason to collide. Ever. Quaid is a high powered criminal attorney as slick as he is handsome. Avett is a pink-haired troublemaker with a bad attitude and a history of picking the wrong men.

When Avett lands in a sea of hot water because of one terrible mistake, the only person who can get her out of it is the insanely sexy lawyer. The last thing on earth she wants to do is rely on the no-nonsense attorney who thinks of her as nothing more than a nuisance. He literally has her fate in his hands. Yet there is something about him that makes her want to convince him to loosen his tie and have a little fun…with her.

Quaid never takes on clients like the impulsive young woman with a Technicolor dye job. She could stand to learn a hard lesson or two, but something about her guileless hazel eyes intrigues him. Still, he’s determined to keep their relationship strictly business. But doing so is becoming more impossible with each day he spends with her.

As they work side-by-side, they’ll have to figure out a way to get along and keep their hands off each other—because the chemistry between them is beyond charged.

My Thoughts
It's so hard for me to read this book, and try and process my thoughts and put them into a review for you, with no spoilers on what happens or how it all ends. I loved Jay's Marked Men series, so I was super excited to find out about the Saints of Denver. Already having met both Avett and Quaid in previous books, I could not wait to watch the sparks ignite in the pages of Charged, because having this duo together in thier own story you knew it wasn't going to be all sunshine and roses, and that sparks and clothes were definitely going to fly.

Avett wasn't a character I was particularly fond of. Her previous actions left a lot of resentment towards her, and her somewhat lack of respect did not help at all. But Charged gets us closer to Avett, and once her story was told I have to admit that I did change my opinion of her, it wasn't a fast change, but a slow change over time, especially when we see the situation she was in, and the consequences she is still dealing with.

Quaid was someone who I was excited to meet, having already seen glimpses of him and what he is capable of, and I had no idea how he would react to Avett. The first meeting of this pair, and the sparks start to fly, and not in a good way. It takes a while for Avett to really trust Quaid and his reasons for wanting to help her. Quaid's past isn't as nice as I expected, especially considering how he dresses and his high power job. He has come from nothing to having everything, and I do admire his determination to still be there, especially how hard he was betrayed.
She looked like some kind of colorful woodland fairy from a Disney movie with her odd hair and delicate features.
Some of us are born into the storm and some of us are born to chase after it, I guess.
Charged was a book I flew through, I could not read it fast enough, and I reluctantly put it down early hours in the morning as I was fighting to keep my eyes open. I loved seeing this duo together and never knew what to expect next off them. But seeing how much they are willing to sacrifice really shows how much they care. Another bonus to this series is we get to see some old friends from the Marked Men series, and I liked how Asa and Avett connected over thier past, and why he does what he does for her.

Final Verdict
Charged is a book you don't want to miss out on. I could not get enough of this couple and I am excited to see if we get to hear more off them in future installments. Make sure to have snacks and drinks ready when you crack open the pages, because you wont want to stop reading. Also don't expect a nice journey, Charged takes you on a roller coaster of a ride, so hold on for dear life.
