Blacklisted by Jay Crownover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hot motorcycle bad boy falls for gorgeous government medical examiner – and our heroine’s over-protective brother is the sheriff trying to track down her crazy, stalker ex-bestie! Sounds like an “opposites attract” romance that will never work out – but we are all for the wild ride to see if it does!
Presley has been terrorized by her psychotic ex-friend and co-worker for the last several months – both sabotaging her career and probably murdering her mother. Presley moves to Lawless, Texas to get to know her new fiercely loyal family after losing her mother while trying to hide from that crazy chick. She ends up saving the life of our anti-hero one violent night at her sister’s bar.
Shot was shot in the cliffhanger of the series’ last book – Unforgiven. Presley is called in to save the Sons of Sorrow president and the bikers whisk her away to their secret club location. Shot wakes up from his almost certain deathbed and is immediately in her debt and he “hates owing anyone” a debt. Thus begins his surveillance of her every move. Shot will do anything to keep her safe, even as his club grumbles at his distraction.
Even though they are from opposite worlds, their chemistry is super combustible. Instant attraction is a troupe our author Jay Crownover has perfected and once Shot and Presley connect – how sweet it is! Along the way to their HEA, we have our psycho’s suspense and some motorcycle club shenanigans. Oh yeah, some Lawton family love as well – a baby, a wedding and a medical scare all put our “reader feels” thru the wringer. The surprise sprung at the final showdown caught me off guard in typical Crownover fashion.
I have been anxiously waiting to read this installment of the Loveless series – and super sad that it is the conclusion to the Lawton family rom-drama. Ms. Crownover is one of my favorite authors and with Blacklisted she does not disappoint. Now where is she going to take us next.
Thanks to Jay, NetGalley and Forever Publishing for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
