Series: Loveless, book 1
Genre: contemporary romance
Publisher: Forever
Publication Date: June 25, 2019
Rating: ★★★★1/2

A lawyer who’s the target of deadly attacks. A sheriff who loathes her but is determined to do his job. These two will be forced to work together to catch the culprit hell bent on killing Aspen. Case is about to realize the hate he’s been harboring for years might be entirely misplaced. 

This is such an exciting new series, my heart is still pumping.

Aspen is my most fave Jay Crownover heroine. She is good to her core and she knows when to give a person a piece of her mind. Whenever she talked (bantered) with Case, I was just whooping and screaming for her because y’all she is THAT GOOD. I need her to be my bff!

Case is the ultimate grump and I love his surly self. I also adore how sweet he can be and how he did a 180 when he realized where he’d gone wrong. We all need a man who’ll throw himself in the path of a bullet just to save you. CASE IS THAT MAN!!!

I love small town romances and Jay has always been the best at creating swoony heroes and strong heroines. This series has such amazing promise. I can’t wait for more stories that’ll follow.

4.5 Stars!

Case Lawton comes from a family of criminals. So as the sheriff of Loveless, Texas, he’s determined to do everything by the book–until he’s called to Aspen Barlow’s office after a so-called break-in. The last thing he wants to do is help the woman who cost him custody of his son. But Aspen isn’t the heartless lawyer Case remembers, and he starts to question his long-held grudge…

Aspen is scared for her life, and Case is her last hope for protection. But to get him on her side, she’ll have to reveal the painful truth from all those years ago. Now, as they work together to track down a dangerous criminal, Case and Aspen learn to trust each other. And as the threats escalate, it becomes clear there’s a thin line between love and hate… because there’s nothing Case wouldn’t do to keep her safe.
