Book Review – Charged by Jay Crownover

Goodreads Summary

Avett Walker and Quaid Jackson’s worlds have no reason to collide. Ever. Quaid is a high powered criminal attorney as slick as he is handsome. Avett ischarged a pink-haired troublemaker with a bad attitude and a history of picking the wrong men.

When Avett lands in a sea of hot water because of one terrible mistake, the only person who can get her out of it is the insanely sexy lawyer. The last thing on earth she wants to do is rely on the no-nonsense attorney who thinks of her as nothing more than a nuisance. He literally has her fate in his hands. Yet there is something about him that makes her want to convince him to loosen his tie and have a little fun…with her.

Quaid never takes on clients like the impulsive young woman with a Technicolor dye job. She could stand to learn a hard lesson or two, but something about her guileless hazel eyes intrigues him. Still, he’s determined to keep their relationship strictly business. But doing so is becoming more impossible with each day he spends with her.

As they work side-by-side, they’ll have to figure out a way to get along and keep their hands off each other—because the chemistry between them is beyond charged.


4 stars


Charged is the story of Avett Walker, a 22 year old woman who continually makes bad decisions and gets herself into trouble.  When she goes to court after being arrested, she meets her new lawyer, Quaid Jackson, whom she is instantly attracted to.  Quaid is an uptight lawyer with some serious baggage of his own.

I have read a lot of reviews and some folks didn’t like Avett.  I liked her a lot.  She took responsibility for her bad decisions and owns up to them.  Unfortunately for her, she doesn’t believe she is worthy of any forgiveness.

Quinn and Avett are as different as two people can be.  Avett has pink hair and a no-nonsense attitude.  Quaid is very uptight – for reasons that are explained and make him even more sympathetic as a character.

We see a lot of the guys from the Marked Men series, which I haven’t read, but no I plan to.  I didn’t love the ending of this book (it was about 20 pages of sex), but overall, it was a good read, and I will continue to read on.

Happy reading.
