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.
Riveted is the story of Dixie Carmichael and Dash ‘Church’ Churchill. I loved the stark differences between Dixie and Church. Dixie is this eternal optimist. A total hopeless romantic that believes in the perfect fairy tale love story. I loved Dixie. You can’t help but want her to get her happy ending. And Church is jaded. Very jaded. How can he not be from his past. For completely different reasons, you want Church to get his happy ending too. And the two of them together was all at once sweet, explosive and sexy. And totally addictive. I could not get enough of these two characters.
And not only them, but the whole crew of characters. I need the other books in this series, in the marked men series, and heck, from every other book Jay Crownover has ever written. I have been bitten by the jay bug and I have been bitten hard. Her words are powerful and addictive and I hung on every single sentence. And I don’t say that lightly. She can write a seriously good book. The kind of good book, you know is not just a fluke. No she is the kind of writer that you just know, everything she writes will be gold. I need more. Now. More Dixie and Church. More Wheeler and Poppy, which I think is going to be the next book in the series. (maybe?) And just more Jay’s books in general.
Bottom line: If you crave really emotional and powerful new adult contemporary romances, with broken characters and delicious chemistry, Riveted is the book for you. Jay Crownover’s writing felt really powerful to me. This is a book that will stay with me long after I finished reading it. I loved Riveted.Check out @BookBriefs #review of #RIVETED by @JayCrownover & grab your copy today! #YallNeedChurch @Morrow_PB Click To Tweet

My favorite thing about home is my cats
It’s where my family & oldest friends are and I can go there knowing they will have open arms anytime!
I like being home, because it’s where the PJ pants are. 😉
Favorite thing about home are the smells: the trees, the leaves…the stinky mill over the hill. <3
My favorite thing about home is my 3 black lab dogs.

Long chats with my Mom are my favorite thing about going home.
Thanks for the great giveaway!
I really love my family and friends!
To me home is full of warmth from the heart.
You HAVE to read Rule, from The Marked Men Series. He’s a tatted up, pierced boy who’s broken. I loved him! And Asa’s book too…ohhh he’s the best bad boy ever, being a previous criminal and all who has a new neighbor is a hot female cop. Those two were my favorites by far in the Marked Men Series! Now I need to start this series!
My favorite thing about back home is seeing so many people I love.❤️
