Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Asa by Jay Crownover. 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.
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.

However, Jay mentioned that the book isn’t going to just focus on the new tattoo shop. I don’t think it will be so much about the tattoo shop. I don’t think the Marked Men people are supposed to make a lot of appearances.
They might pop up every once in a while though. Remys boyfriends Lando is supposed to get a story with a cop. I hope Zeb gets a story. She mentioned something about a lawyer too. Can someone please tell me, how are these books related the marked men series? Are the main characters all friends?

Oh wait, there you are Words! Honestly, I find myself torn as there were parts of this book I truly adored And parts I adored not so much. In fact, I’m gonna just go out on a limb and say Now before I get started, I must say this: Jay Crownover’s writing has gotten wicked awesome over the course of this series. In fact, many times after reading certain passages in th 3.
In fact, many times after reading certain passages in this book I would legit hear myself say to myself, “Wow, Self, Jay Aasa writing has gotten wicked awesome. Their connection was heavily palpable from page one. And their sexy time? Now, being that I feel a bit of I am just gonna straight list mah Nay Feelsso without further ado Oh, you aren’t familiar with “Diplomatic Val?
So here was this book in a nutshell: After about the hundredth variation of, “You don’t understand what a bad man I am” though Now enter everyone else around Asa, telling him: Jesus Big C, already.
The horse is dead. So stop beating it. Now, don’t get it twisted, I love that Asa wasn’t just “miraculously redeemed” overnight, but I felt like this whole book was just the whole Cast of Characters going back and forth about this issue over and over and over again.
Speaking of the Cast of Characters I have said this in almost every review for this series I’ve done. And I am abso-fucking-lutely going to say it again here: Don’t get me wrong, I dig all the cool names.
But seriously, you can’t tell me that there has never been at least ONE unoriginal child-naming parent in the world who has lived in or moved to Denver. Or perhaps even just a strict anti-birth control Catholic couple who has a slew of Marys, Josephs, and Pauls.
Aside from the circular carousel that was the majority of this story line, the main conflict of the book? And it ain’t even interesting – or even worth in my opinion – all the heartache it causes. Again, don’t get me wrong, I understand the premise behind the type of issue Crownover created here.
She really wanted Asa to prove his selflessness and to shine, which I dig. I just didn’t love the plot ploy that was utilized. Now I know this is coming off as a negative review. But it’s not meant to be. I am going to KEEP this book. If you get mad and want to shoot me? Just shoot the book out of my hand, sharpshooter.
Because that’s totally realistic.
Love that she left it open-ended for more. View all 56 comments. I love reading books about reformed men. Royal is a police officer. How ironic that this police officer is insanely attracted to this ex con? Royal is going thr 4 stars! Royal is going through a lot right now. Royal does what she can to get Asa to see himself as she sees him. I liked how their relationship took a little time to develop. There was a bit of drama which I understood, but still irked me but overall, this was low drama and angst and just an all around good read.
I loved both Asa and Royal. I always find it nice when both main characters are likable. I loved the connection that Asa and Royal shared. Not just the chemistry and the steam, but how they were on an emotional level. This story was about sacrifice, about love, about new beginnings, making positive changes.
About moving on, letting go and falling in love. Asa was a great final book in the Marked Men series.
The ending was absolutely perfect and made me tear up just a bit. I really hope Jay will give us a spin off book maybe Zeb??? View all 22 comments. Asa is an ex-con. Crrownover is a cop. She wants him forever.
He believes she deserves better. In a battle of wills, with a strong a girl willing to fight for what she wants, and a guy who is now learning how to sacrifice what he wants in the name of love, who will win? And when it is time to finally stop figh 4 Final Stars. And when it is time to finally stop fighting?
Sweet, because just all the books prior, it was a great reading. Bitter because I hate to say goodbye to this amazing group of strong girls and marked men. The writing was solid and crownovdr, the pace was fast enough to not be boring and slow enough so we can enjoy it.
