Asa Jay Crownover read online review & book description:

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.

  • The Marked Men Series

    By DafPad123
    I ran across these books and of course started with Rule. Rule is still my favorite book, but I honestly LOVE them all! I love how they are all intertwined and you get to continuously read about all the characters. In my opinion, 5 stars isn't enough! I love how real the books feel and how this author reminds readers to be true to themselves!!
  • Perfect

    By Lovilylauren
    This was the perfect way to end this series. Everything about it was wonderful. The epilogue really got to me! It made me so happy to see all the people I loved from the books happy with their lives. Just such a great series and great stories.

  • Asa

    By steph_rae
    A wonderful way to end this series. I loved this story almost as much as I loved Rule and Shaw's.

    I love JC she is truly a great writer/storyteller. I loved all of the hot, sexy Marked men, but was so happy that Asa did get his HEA. That the series started with Ayden it was quite fitting to end with her big bro Asa. Can't wait for the upcoming books.
  • Great Conclusion to the Series!

    By Cpitcock
    Asa was a wonderful book on which to complete this series, but I will miss the Marked Men books! I'm so glad Crownover's next series is a spinoff one that will hopefully return us to these great characters once in awhile. Asa has grown so much over this series, and turned into a great character! I really like Royal too, and I thought they were meant for one another. I loved the chemistry between them and the acceptance Royal had for Asa that he was even lacking himself. Seeing the other Marked Men characters once again was a bonus, and it was fun to find out what was going on in their lives. Asa has a past as a bad man, and although he is now trying hard to do the right thing, he believes it is only a matter of time until he sinks to his former depths again. Royal, a young police officer, is very attracted to Asa and has made her interest known. Asa doesn't think he is good enough for her, so has rejected his advances. When he is finally worn down, the two bond quickly and develop feelings for one another. Asa is so certain that he is a bad man that it is very difficult for him to move beyond that past. It takes heartbreak for him to realize that he really has changed. I loved the story of Asa and Royal! They were wonderful together, and I was very pleased with how quickly Royal accepted everything about Asa, and saw him for the man he had become. I liked the way she tried to get him to realize that he had more layers than he realized and that he was worth loving. There were parts of the book that broke my heart, but I was very satisfied with the way it all worked out. This was a great conclusion to a wonderful series!
  • Awesome

    By BeBe465
    Asa loved his character. He was bad guy gone good. Love that he wasn't trying to be anyone else but himself. He was honest and that's what mad him. Royal the sexy hard nose cop. Love how she went after what she wanted and that was Asa. She never gave up on him. This story was awesome. The ending was great how all the other Marked Men and their ladies just called in. Great job. Can't wait for the next new series.
  • marked men finale

    By mak115
    It's always bittersweet for me when I read the final book of a series but Jay has done a great job with all of the books in this one that it's not goodbye but see you later. Loved all of them but this one was my favorite. Please do yourself a favor and start with Rule and then read the rest it is well worth your while. Looking forward to all of Jay's future books.
