Review: This book was the best, as soon as I found out that I was approved to read/review it. I grabbed my kindle so fast and hid away in my room for the next day or so.

Zeb, all he is and all he wants are let loose in this book. And let me tell you, some parts you will really need to fan yourself because once Zeb’s point of view starts in this book. You wont ever want him to stop.

This was an amazing first book to start off the Saints of Denver series! Zeb and Sayer are really great in this book and they totally bring the feels upon you while reading their story. There is another someone very special in this book, but if I said anything more about him, it would ruin the surprise. Anyway I’ll tell you one last little thing about him, he is the cutest thing in the whole world and just like Zeb.

Back to this awesome book, the different layers exposed of Zeb and of Sayer are very well dealt out and gave the characters their depth. Because in this series, after the marked men series, you know that these characters will leave a big mark on your soul after how this first book went off.

Some of the best parts were the hints at who could be the next set of characters for the next book and getting to see our old friends from the Marked Men series. I am very much looking forward to the next books in this series!

Summary: 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. Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller are as different as two people can be. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and kill it and grill it. Sayer spends her days in litigation, while Zeb spends his working with his hands. She’s French silk while he’s denim and flannel.

The differences between the two of them don’t stop Zeb from dropping every hint he can think of that he would like to get to know her on a more personal level, but Sayer seems oblivious to his interest or is just too nice to tell him to take a hike. To Sayer, a guy like Zeb could never be interested in someone as reserved and boring as she is. She’s never been with anyone that was hot enough to melt the icy exterior she’s had wrapped around herself since her awful childhood. But what if Zeb is the one who might finally thaw her out…?
