Author: Jay Crownover
Release Date: 5 January, 2016
Rating: 4 stars
Cliffhanger:. No

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes an electrifying new spin-off series,Saints of Denver, featuring all the characters fans have been dying to read about.

Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk, he’s all denim and flannel.

Zeb’s wanted the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her. It doesn't matter how many smooth moves he makes, the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest—either that or she doesn't return it. Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior.

But just as things start to heat up, Zeb is blindsided by a life altering moment from his past. He needs Sayer’s professional help to right a wrong and to save more than himself. He can’t risk what’s at stake just because his attraction to Sayer feels all consuming. But as these opposites dig in for the fight of their lives, battling together to save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide can no longer be ignored.Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller are as different as two people can be. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and kill it and grill it. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk while he’s denim and flannel.

The differences between the two of them don’t stop Zeb from dropping every hint he can think of that he would like to get to know her on a more personal level, but Sayer seems oblivious to his interest or is just too nice to tell him to take a hike. To Sayer, a guy like Zeb could never be interested in someone as reserved and boring as she is. She’s never been with anyone that was hot enough to melt the icy exterior she’s had wrapped around hera since her awful childhood. But what if Zeb is the one who might finally thaw her out…?

Few months ago, when I reached the end of the final novel in Marked Men Series I was very sad to say goodbye to all of the characters. They stole a piece of my soul and I literally could feel my heart breaking at the thought of letting them go.

Fortunately for me, Jay Crownover decided to rescue my poor little heart and write a spin-off of the series I adored so much.

In few short words, Built is incredibly sexy and sweet story. I was absolutely pumped to read it and felt glued to the pages!

In her usual style Jay Crownover delivered strong, intense and heart melting romance. It was witty, flirty and filled with great sexual chemistry as well as with some complex issues.

However, I won’t lie and tell you that I loved every single twist and turn of the plot, because it definitely had its ups and downs. Some elements of the storyline were a little bit stretched (I won’t be pointing them out as I don’t want to write any spoilers) and overused.

To be honest those parts annoyed the hell out of me, I rolled my eyes quite a bit. Fortunately the rest of the plot was very good and engaging so in the end I took down only one star from my rating.

The best of Built? Definitely Zebulon Fuller. Absolutely delicious, heartwarming giant of a man that I fell in love with. He was such a good person: dedicated, caring, loving.. I could go on and on why he changed me into a crazy fangirl. Perfect alpha hero! *swoon*

I was hoping that The Saints of Denver will deliver enough glimpses of Marked Men crew to satisfy my craving. So yes I was super excited to read Built! And I am not disappointed at the least. I got to see characters I love so much and meet new ones, that are really making me thrilled to see in what direction Saints of Denver will go.
