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.

Third in the Saints of Denver series by one of my go-to authors – Jay Crownover, Riveted is the story of Church (Dash Churchill) and Dixie Carmichael. The last few stories we have been getting glimpses of these two characters and I have really been waiting to see what was going to become of them, especially strong, silent Church.
His grief started young with major loss and now he is coming home after spending time away and in the military. He takes Dixie with him so what is a unique aspect of this story is its actually not set in Denver but rather along the road going back to his home state of Mississippi.
The characters were written well, I thought Church was a bit hard to get to know for about the first half of the book. Hes pretty introspective and broody. Dixie is happy and fun, she loves Church and wears her heart on her sleeve. The secondary characters were also written out well and had good interactions throughout the story.
I really liked the fact that, while not thrown in readers faces, the issue of interracial relationships is addressed. This is quiet rare – at least in the books im exposed to. I think the author did an amazing job with this subject that can be touchy at best.
If you have read any of the Saints books, especially Charged, and liked them – I think you will really enjoy Riveted.
Definitely 4**** WickedGoodStars!
