Thank you to Jay Crownover, InkSlinger, Netgalley, and the team at Forever for the advanced review copy of Blacklisted the third book in the Loveless, Texas series.
I was over the moon to receive this book nearly two months early. I finished it the day Jay Crownover announced she got a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly for this story, the first book of her’s to ever do so. Maybe that’s why reading this release felt so special, I devoured it. No surprise here Jay killed this book.
Check out the Goodreads synopsis…
“From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men series comes an irresistible and suspenseful romance between a doctor who plays by the rules and the outlaw who breaks them in order to protect her.
Dr. Presley Baskin has always lived a quiet, calm life. Unfortunately, nothing about her life in Loveless, Texas—especially not the wild, rowdy, and impossibly close-knit Lawton family who’ve claimed her—is quiet or calm. Which is how loner Presley finds herself roped into patching up local bad boy Shot Caldwell against her better judgment. Presley wants nothing to do with the dangerous, brooding leader of the local outlaw motorcycle club. But when someone starts stalking her, Shot is the only person she trusts to help. Plus he owes her one…
Palmer ‘Shot’ Caldwell has always known his life isn’t made for relationships. At least until shy, secretive, Presley reluctantly pulled a bullet out of him. He’s oddly protective of the pretty doctor, so when she comes to him for help, hard-hearted Shot suddenly realizes there’s nothing he wouldn’t do to keep her safe.”
Check out my more detailed thoughts below…
- Characters: Blacklisted is Presley and Shot’s story. Presley is a character who has been in the Loveless, Texas universe for a while now, one I was so excited to finally be in her head. Presley is such a strong protagonist for this story, a young woman who has struggled, who has been forced to be independent. In the face of all of that, she has half-brothers, a half-sister, half-sister in-laws and now a love interest who want to show her she does not have to go about life all on her own.
- Setting: The story is set in Loveless a town in Texas that is the complete opposite of its name. A town that is so full of love that for Presely and Shot people in dire need of it, it is the perfect place to be.
- Romance: Shot and Presley have all-encompassing chemistry. It was electrifying to read them fall in love for the first time in their lives. The romantic scenes were so incredibly hot.
Blacklisted receives five out of five stars.
