Blog Tour:Jet by Jay Crownover

Author: Jay Crownover
Publisher: Willima Morrow
Date of publication: November 2013

With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn’t want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet’s dark, haunted eyes. She’s afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire.

Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships.

 I think that Ms. Crownover is fast becoming a favorite New Adult author for me.  Her "Marked Men" series is full of great characters and wonderfully flawed romance. Yes, there is angst, but in a good way. What I love about this series is that even though I am not a 20-something, I can really identify with the characters.  They don't come from perfect families and know that you have to put in hard work to make it in this world.  They also realize that family is and can be what you make it.  Blood isn't all that makes a family. 

Jet is the second in the series and is Ayden and Jet's story.  There is definitely something there for them, but they fight it for a long time.  When they finally give in to the passion, they light the pages on fire. Ayden did make me roll my eyes a few times since she was kind of mean to Jet.  He was clearly willing to put in his all, but Ayden holds him at arms length for so long.  I loved Jet. Not only is he sexy, but he has a soft side to him.  He isn't out for fame and fortune, he just wants music in his life.  My heart really hurt for him when he was dealing with his mother.  I was glad to see how he handled her in the end.

I look forward to the next book, Rome.  I can't wait to read his and Cora's story.

About the author:

Jay Crownover is the bestselling author of Rule and Jet. Like the characters in her Marked Men series, she is a big fan of tattoos. She loves music and wishes she could be a rock star, but since she has no aptitude for
singing or instrument playing, she’ll settle for writing stories that have interesting characters and make the reader feel something. She lives in Colorado with her three dogs.
