Book 6, Marked Men - A Marked Men Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Jay Crownover’s New York Times and USA Today bestselling Marked Men series continues with the much anticipated story of southern charmer and certified criminal Asa Cross.

Starting over in Denver with a whole new circle of friends and family, Asa Cross struggles with being the man he knows everyone wants him to be and the man he knows he really is. A leopard doesn’t it change its spots and Asa has always been a predator. He doesn’t want to hurt those who love and rely on him, especially one luscious arresting cop who suddenly seems to be interested in him for far more than his penchant for breaking the law. But letting go of old habits is hard, and it’s easy to hit bottom when it’s the place you know best.

Royal Hastings is quickly learning what the bottom looks like after a tragic situation at work threatens not only her career but her partner’s life. As a woman who has only ever had a few real friends she’s trying to muddle through her confusion and devastation all alone. Except she can’t stop thinking about the sexy southern bartender she locked up. Crushing on Asa is the last thing she needs but his allure is too strong to resist. His long criminal record can only hurt her already shaky career and chasing after a guy who has no respect for the law or himself can only end in heartbreak.

A longtime criminal and a cop together just seems so wrong . . . but for Asa and Royal, being wrong together is the only right choice to make.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 09, 2015 – Crownover wraps up her Marked Men series in safe mode, giving Asa Cross maybe the baddest of her bad-boy heroes a convenient redemption plot. After a terrifying near-death experience, Asa quits his life of crime and petty larceny, gets a job as a bartender, and determinedly makes monthly installment payments on his massive medical bills. What could best complete this picture of straight-and-narrowness? Falling for Royal Hastings, the cop who arrested him the last time he dabbled in crime. As luck would have it, this sexy officer yearns for nothing less than slapping cuffs on Asa once again preferably so as to attach him to the headboard of a bed. What might have been an edgy plot with spiky sex is instead predicable and tame.

Hot men, strong women and their powerful stories

Hot men, strong women and their powerful stories is what you get when you read Jay Crownover’s Asa.

Asa is trying to reform himself into someone his sister would be proud of. He truly feels it would be easier for a leopard to change his spots but he is still trying. He also feels that his sins from the past are unforgivable but he will take any chances he is given to become a better man.

Royal is struggling with not stopping the shooting of her partner and best friend on the police force. In a crazy way of lashing out on herself over her failure, Royal goes wild in the bar Asa works. Asa knows how she feels with her self punishment and has been pulling her out of the stickiest of situations.

There is strong attraction there but can the career criminal come together with the cop or will it just lead to heart ache.

I have devoured every book in the series by Crownover and they truly were all great reads but this one might be my least favorite of all the books in this series. I’m thinking it’s my aversion to Asa overall. I do have to say Crownover knew how to do reform and a struggling reformed Asa definitely is.

The clash of the cop, Royal and the reforming bad boy, Asa dripped sexual chemistry. Hold on to your seats, it’s gonna get hot in here.

There was lots of raw emotion, personal conflict and heart clenching moments making Asa a wonderful contemporary romance.

I received this ARC copy of Asa from HarperCollins - William Morrow Paperback in exchange for a honest review.

The best way to end the MM series!

The best way to end the MM series! Such great character development over the series with Asa. Only fitting he is sent off on a high note.

Awesome, as always with the Marked Men

Halfway thru this finale of the Marked Men series, and I'm loving every second. Ever since Asa's intro to this series, I've had a soft spot for this Southern charmer! I can't wait to see where his happy ever after is! I'm sad to see this group have an end...
