    "Show me the most damaged parts of your soul, and I will show you how it shines like gold." ~Nikita GillWhen you begin and end a book in tears, you know its a game changer of a story thats ruled not only your head but your heart. Riveted by Jay Crownover slammed into my soul with a force I never saw coming, but one I felt with every word from beginning to end. I had no choice but to fall into the words that bled into me becoming me because each...

    NOW LIVE!*Amazon*B&N*Kobo*I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but holy wow Jay Crownover is one amazing author. She has a unique ability to take a simple storyline and turn it into something spectacular. She somehow subtly entwines real life issues into her stories and I am in love with how she does that. Riveted follows Dixie Carmichael as she tries to find her forever person. She's sure that the one she's supposed to be with is the big and b...

    3.5 stars I was the girl that everyone always assumed was good... so they never asked... but he had and the world stopped. Riveted is the story of Church and Dixie. Dixie is that girl who is always sweet and happy, who never lets it show when life gets her down. Dixie knew early on that Church was the man for her, but he didnt get the memo. Coworkers at a bar, Church is aware that Dixie is attracted to him and a nice person, so thats why he as...

    Jay Crownover has a way of sucking you into her stories that is quite remarkable. The webs she weaves, interlocking these great characters together, bring me a sense of nostalgia as I get to read about the previous couples in the Marked Men series. Dixie and Church share a special connection that our hero is quite adamant about resisting. Dixie is the happy go lucky girl that wants someone to finally see her heart. She has this vulnerability to h...
  • *TANYA*
    The author would not let up on Church's inner turmoil. Ugh. Too repetitive and nothing much going on. This one is my least favorite in the series.

    ★★★½Riveted was my first exposure to author Jay Crownover or this series: Saints of Denver. I was in the mood for a contemporary romance and the audiobook was available at my local library so I thought I would try out a new-to-me author. I was surprised how familiar Ms. Crownover's writing style felt. It reminded me very much of Kristen Ashley and I am not a reader who typically compares authors, but the familiarity was strong. Riveted fea...

    5 Riveted Stars I am LOVING this series, though I wanted Poppys story sooo badly I am kind of glad we have to wait a little bit longer. Dixie and Church are phenomenal I loved their story so so much. I think I like that Dixie was a ray of sunshine. Maybe because I relate to that, sure life can be hard and get you down but there is always something to smile about. :) And being able to make others have a smile because of something you did or just a...

    ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review A riveting, sexy, steamy romance that packs an emotional and heartwarming punch!!! Jay Crownover is no stranger when it comes to writing romance that has sass and steam but her stories and characters have a magical way of always leaving a lasting impression when it comes to the matters of the heart and in her newest release, Riveted, Jay lures readers to feel for her characters and see be...

    rating: 4.75/5Original review on Julalicious Book ParadiseIf you have been on my blog for a while now, you know that Jay Crownover is one of my favourite authors. There isn't a book of hers that I don't love or a series that didn't catch my eye. When I received this ARC for Riveted, I was jumping up and down seriously because I was really excited to read it and I wasn't disappointed at all.I'm trying to find where to start my review without is be...

    Riveted is about a woman who waited so long to find the right one and when the right one came along she wasnt sure if she would ever be the right one for him. Dixie Carmichael has always believed in love, she has this bubbly happy personality and she wants everyone around her to be happy. Dashiel Church Churchill is trying to recover himself before heading to his hometown, he is the silent brooding type.Church and Dixie work together at the bar o...

    *ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*I want to be Church's pretty girl. This book was brilliant. I really enjoyed it. I was dying to know aghast was holding Church back from being with Dixie (I just luv that name). Dixie is such an amazing girl she sees the best in everyone and everything. Life hasn't been easy for her but things could always be worst. I really liked how she was so up beat even dealing wi...

    I should start by saying a few things. First, I usually really like Jay Crownover. She is the only author I have ever taken the time to go meet, Ive bought all of her books regardless of whether the premise actually sounded good to me, and, for the most part, I have enjoyed them all. Second, I am from the south; not the deep south of Mississippi, but from a place where confederate flags flying are not unusual (on trucks, in front yards, and on as...
  • Bex | TotallyBex.com
    Im such a fan of Jay Crownover and her easy style of storytelling. I love her lovable yet broken men and her strong, redeeming heroines. I also like The Saints of Denver series because of its strong overarching theme of family bonds. Riveted is no different, and like Charged, its an opposites attract love story (who arent as opposite as they first think).Dixie and Church work together at Rome and Asas bar. Hes the strong silent type and shes is a...

    "Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review"This book didnt work for me, but it might work for readers who like a story about a tormented biker hero with lots of explicit sex. Ive requested it on NetGalley because of the blurb, the tortured hero and because I had Rome ("Marked Men) in my wish list for a while and so I was curious about this author.Overall, I liked the main characters and some of the secondary characters, namely...
  • Francesca the Fierce (Under the Covers Book Blog)
    When this series started, I really enjoyed BUILT. Its a spin off of the Marked Men series so that attracted me to it in the chance of seeing some of those characters. And when I met the new set of characters here, I was hooked. As of late, Ive been feeling a bit disconnected with this authors books. RIVETED was maybe another example of that. I didnt connect with this story and characters as much as I wanted to.Part of that is because I didnt real...
  • Liv ☾
    ✱3.5 STARS!✱☾This was surprisingly a really good story. I didn't think much of the book when I read the summary because it didn't give me that "this book is going to be amazing!" Feeling, you know? It didn't really draw me in.☾What I felt was most interesting about this story is that it was a romance but it was also kind of a thriller. When Dixie was trapped in the bathroom I instantly knew something was up but I didn't realize that was t...

    While this wasn't my favorite in the series, I really enjoyed what Crownover did here. Having read all of the Marked Men series and then followed the characters over to this series, a lot of these people weren't new to me. And let's be honest, Church has been a mystery since the beginning. And I never would have expected him to wind up with someone like Dixie. Dash Churchill is a man of mystery and recluse. You can tell he's had a hard past but h...

  • Linda (un)Conventional Bookworms
    This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional Bookviews Riveted took me on a trip away from danger, where danger was lurking in every dark corner, and it was impossible to know whether Dixie or Church was the target.Riveted did exactly that to me while I was reading it - I was riveted from start to finish, especially because Dixie and Church had been dancing around each other in prior books in the Saints of Denver series, and I was eager ...

    #YallNeedChurch. Definitely. Certainly. That hashtag now means so much more to me than just seeing it on every post about this book. Because it's nothing but the truthy'all really do need to get to know this complicated soldier with a huge heart and has so much love to give, even if he doesn't realize it at first. He's captivated me right from the get-go and the long wait for his and Dixie's story is just more than worth it. It was raw, gritty an...

    Dixie dreams of being with her soul mate and wants nothing more than to have her own happily ever after. While everyone around her seems to have found true love she's still waiting. She is in love, but is certain Church, the man she's been smitten with for quite some time, doesn't feel the same way about her. That's why his request to visit his family with him comes as such a surprise. Dixie takes whatever he's able to give her and says yes to th...

    3.5 STARS I love this series and I was so excited to read this but for some reason I didn't feel like in the previous books.It wasn't bad, I just couldn't feel the connection with the characters.My main problem was Dixie.Even though there were moments I liked her most of the time she was getting on my nerves.I can't wait for the next book!!

    February 2017 --At 21%, it just couldn't hold my interest. This author is hit or miss for me. When I like her, I really do. But, when I don't .. I didn't this time.You may be just fine. Hope you are.Happy Reading!

    Original review: The Daydreaming Bookworm*I received an ARC from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.* We all know how much of a Jay Crownover fan I am, right? I think Ive fangirled enough times for everyone to know, so of course I was screaming when I received an ARC of Riveted, the next installment in the Saints of Denver series. Ive been waiting a pretty damn long time for Churchs story and lets just say its always the quiet ...

    Since I have started working overnights audiobooks have become my saving grace. Last year I binged all of Jay Crownover;s books and couldnt wait to get my hands or ears on Riveted. We are finally getting Dixie and Church's story! Dixie, a glass is always half full type of gal, and then Church a brooding soldier, but something drew Dixie to him and she knows hes the one, but will he ever realize it or just get better at running?Denver isnt home fo...
