Review- Riveted by Jay Crownover


From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the next installment in the Saints of Denver series.

Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael's life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she’s done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that's become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she's going hunting for him...even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.

Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it's time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying.

When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he's all wrong for you.

I think the Saints of Denver series has to be one of my favourite series by Jay Crownover. She really has come a long way from Rule and I enjoy her writing more now than before. Riveted is the third book in the Saints of Denver series and this is the story of Dixie and Church. I always like a good opposites attract kinda romance so I really enjoyed myself while reading this one.

Let's start with Dixie. Dixie was such a genuinely sweet and nice and loving heroine. She was the good girl who always looked out for everyone. Dixie always had a smile on her face and was ever ready to help a friend out in time of need. I really liked Dixie for all these qualities she possessed. Though Dixie had a good set of friends she longed for the forever kind of love. We get to see Dixie's dreams and aspirations along with her vulnerabilities.

Church on the other hand was a closed book. For him, Denver was a pit stop and he knows he's dragging his time out here for nothing but Dixie, knowing that he can't have her. He actually won't allow himself to have her because he thinks she deserves someone good and basically better than him. Church was a good man. He just had many issues and a horrible fear of losing the people he loved. He was a great guy for Dixie.

Church soon finds himself in a situation where he requires Dixie's help and he actually takes her to his home town. I loved the chemistry between Dixie and Church. Jay Crownover writes amazing romance and Dixie and Church's love story was one to swoon over. I do agree that sometimes the internal monologues can be a bit long and boring in characters but I've come to accept it with Jay Crownover's writing.

I also really adored Church's family. They were a solid bunch of people just waiting for Church to find his way back home. I loved how Dixie and Church opened up to each other and came clean about their fears and vulnerabilities. They deserved a happy ending. I also seriously cannot wait for Poppy and Wheeler's book next. Those two need some good in their lives more than anyone. All in all Riveted was a great read and I can't wait to read more from Jay Crownover.
