About BUILT:

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.

He took a step closer to me and put his finger under my chin so that I had no choice but to look at that darkening green gaze. “You know what is a big deal?”

Without thinking I put my wet hand on the center of his chest and watched as my handprint covered the place where his heart was thudding heavy and strong. He felt so vital and real, like everything I had had my hands on before him was just make-believe.

“What?” My voice came out more of a whisper than anything else.

“We hung out, I bought you dinner, we talked about our families and shit. We shared. This was a date, Sayer. Maybe not the best first date ever but it was still a date, so you know what that means.”

I did? I was still trying to get my head around the fact that it really had been kind of a date when his head lowered toward mine and my lips tickled as his beard got close enough to brush against them.

“It means we went on a date, so now you should absolutely put your hands on my dick…a lot. My gentlemanly tendencies only reach so far and with you they have about reached the end of the line.”

I gulped a little. “Oh.” That sounded like so many different kinds of dangerous and delicious. I had never asked him to be a gentleman, and frankly one of the reasons I was so attracted to him was because he seemed so rugged and untamed by the conventions I was used to and bored to death by.

“Yeah, oh…which I fully intend to make you say over and over again while I’m as deep inside of you as I can get.”

When his mouth settled over mine, it was an entirely different mess I was suddenly worried about. There was going to be no cleaning up the wreckage that was going to be left of my heart and body when this man was done with me and that felt entirely like a great big deal even though I was helpless to stop it. It was one mess I intended to embrace and not apologize for even if that went against everything I had ingrained deep down within the very core of me.


Oh my heck. If a saint comes in the form of tall, big and bearded then take me to heaven. Actually, that’s exactly what Jay Crownover did. I’m in man heaven. No. Zeb Fuller heaven. He’s all sorts of rugged, take charge kind of manliness. He is loyal, takes care of his family and has a big heart.
Like all of her books, Jay Crownover knows how to create strong, beautiful (on the inside and outside) characters. I love that her characters are no bullshit characters. They aren’t wishy washy. Vulnerable, hurt and trying to overcome life’s curveballs yes. But not mousy. I loved that Sayer was a guarded female who didn’t just throw herself into the arms of men. I think this shows strength not bitchiness. I think it shows independence not cold and a cock tease.
I love how both Sayer and Zeb both were fighting for the same thing– a sense of family and doing right by them.
BUILT, the first book in the Saints of Denver series is not just a continuation of the Marked Men and I can’t say enough how thankful I am for that. I wanted to read something fresh and new. New people, new challenges yet there was a familiarity.
What Jay Crownover does so well is balance her stories. There’s sexiness, humour, angst, strength, vulnerability, love, lust, raw emotion. She packages her stories so well that you never want to stop reading about her characters. I also enjoy how she introduces new characters and gets you thinking about their story.
Zeb Fuller will send a spark through your heart so get him and BUILT on your TBR.
D 5/5
