I'm a couple days late in posting this so I apologize to you and also to author, Jay Crownover for not getting the info on her newest book release out when I was supposed to. I suck and I'm sorry!  The good news in this is, however, that now I have a review too so it's like a twofer.  Yay!  ;)

So on Tuesday, Jay's newest book Built was released.    This is the much anticipated first full length book in her new Saints of Denver series and it didn't disappoint one bit.  

Release Date: 01/05/16

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes an electrifying new spin-off series,Saints of Denver, featuring all the characters fans have been dying to read about.

Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk, he’s all denim and flannel.

Zeb’s wanted the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her. It doesn't matter how many smooth moves he makes, the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest—either that or she doesn't return it. Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior.

But just as things start to heat up, Zeb is blindsided by a life altering moment from his past. He needs Sayer’s professional help to right a wrong and to save more than himself. He can’t risk what’s at stake just because his attraction to Sayer feels all consuming. But as these opposites dig in for the fight of their lives, battling together to save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide can no longer be ignored.

"It's a work thing."  I grumbled the lie out and Poppy laughed softly at me.

"Sure it is.  Just like you coming home covered in paint last night was a work thing."  I frowned at her and slumped down in my seat.

"That was work.  Not my work exactly, but still work."  At least it had been until I ended up naked and fucked.  I sighed a little.  I'd never ever actually been fucked before Zeb.  Seattle Sayer had never dated men that were the kind to fuck, and again I could kick her for all that she had missed out on.  I sure as hell had never had sex up against a freshly painted wall with my ass sticking up in the air and now I knew what I was missing.

I wanted to be numb to it all.  Wanted to chalk it up to raging hormones that had hummed around Zeb since the beginning.  I wanted to be detached and calm so that I could tell him it was a mistake that we shouldn't make again.  I wasn't any of those things.

Nope, despite my best effort to keep a lid on them, my feelings, where Zeb Fuller was concerned, were leaking out through every crack they could find in my icy exterior.  They were oozing, flowing, liquid, and as hot as lava all over me.


How's that for steaming hot?!?!  What I loved about this story is that Zeb and Sayer, the main characters were so different physically but inside they were both these lost and flawed people that simply needed each other.  It's just that Sayer was harder to convince that they belonged together than Zeb.  He proved to be both ambitious and determined and refused to give up on what he knew in his heart was right for both of them.  

After meeting both Sayer and Zeb in Jay's Marked Men series, it was wonderful to see them in their own love story.  Built also allowed us to see more of the Poppy character and I am hoping (as I'm sure everyone else is) that she will get her story one day too.
