Jay Crownover - Az ​utcák királya
Egy ​sötét, alvilági királyságban az uralkodó nem ismerhet félelmet, csak így tarthatja irányítása alatt az utcákat és a rajtuk élősködő, könyörtelen bűnözőket. Race Hartman elég jó családba született, elég intelligens, és eléggé kiábrándult a saját világából ahhoz, hogy az utcák királya legyen. Az olyan helyeken, mint a Point, mindig felüti a fejét a bűnözés, és mindig is lesznek züllött alakok, de aki föléjük tud kerekedni, az gátat szabhat a pusztításnak. Race-nek van egy terve, de kérdés, hogy meg tudja-e akadályozni a teljes pusztulást úgy, hogy saját magát nem teszi tönkre? Brysen Carter sosem állhatta a legjobb barátnője bátyját, mert túl sármos, túl megnyerő a modora, és túl könnyen behálóz bárkit. Óriási kísértés egy ilyen férfi aranyfényű ragyogásában sütkérezni, de Brysen tudja, hogy Race olyan, akár a Nap: ha túl közel kerül hozzá, jó eséllyel a vesztébe rohan. Mikor fenyegető üzeneteket kap, majd valaki az életére tör egy parkolóban, az egyetlen ember, akire számíthat, pontosan az a férfi, akit nem engedhet közel magához. Néha a vakmerőség az egyetlen esélyünk az életben maradásra. Vajon Brysen hagyhatja, hogy Race megmentse az életét, ha ennek az az ára, hogy feladja érte önmagát?

Jay Crownover - A ​tetovált srác
Nagy ​különbség van egy rosszfiú és egy olyan srác között, aki a lelke mélyéig züllött - akárcsak Shane Baxter. A szexis, kiszámíthatatlan és veszélyes Bax nem csupán rossz csillagzat alatt látta meg a napvilágot, ő maga a született bűnöző. Kocsitolvaj, verőlegény, ketrecharcos, a bajba keveredés fekete öves bajnoka, mígnem az egyik rossz döntése öt évre rács mögé juttatja. Miután visszanyeri a szabadságát, válaszokat keres, és nem érdekli, mit kell megtennie, kit kell megszorongatnia azért, hogy megtudja, ki csalta csapdába. Csakhogy beszáll mellé a játszmába még valaki, aki túlságosan ártatlan, túlságosan lágy, ráadásul nem hagyja magát lerázni. Dovie Pryce ismeri az élet sötét oldalát, a nehéz körülményekkel járó súlyos döntéseket. Mindig is jó akart maradni, önzetlenül segíteni másokon, nem hagyta, hogy a sötétség lehúzza és elnyelje őt. Az utcát azonban nehéz legyőzni, a dolgok rosszról gyorsan életveszélyesre fordulnak, és az egyetlen ember, aki mellett biztonságban lehet, a Point legfenyegetőbb, legszexisebb, legkiállhatatlanabb nehézfiúja, aki épp most szabadult. Bax közelsége eleinte rettegéssel tölti el Dovie-t, de hamarosan rájön, hogy a tetovált srác sem olyan, amilyennek a külseje alapján hinnénk.

Jay Crownover - Rule ​(angol)
I ​had loved Rule Archer since the first moment I ever laid eyes on him. He was everything I shouldn't want and the only person I went out of my way to not try and please. He only saw me as a brat, and an entitled, stuck up princess but worse than that all he saw when he looked at me was his deceased twins girl. It broke my heart because as much as I had loved Remy Archer there was never anything romantic between us and no matter how hard I tried to convince myself that loving Rule was a terrible idea, my poor heart just wouldn't listen. We tolerated each other, barely and had forged an uneasy alliance until one night I had too much to drink and changed the way we were forever. Suddenly life long secrets were no longer hidden and the one thing I always wanted for myself seemed obtainable as long as I was willing to go through hell to hold onto it. Shaw Landon was a class act and I had no idea what to do with her. She was tied to my family, tied to the person that was my other half so I tolerated her and her haughty attitude when I didn't have any other choice. What I didn't know was that a short skirt and too many cocktails on her birthday was going to change my outlook on her for the rest of my life. Some people thought I hid behind all my tattoos and piercings, that I tried to distance myself from my dead twin, Shaw saw through it all and wasn't scared of what was underneath. We weren't supposed to be together, weren't supposed to be anything up uncomfortable acquaintances but that all changed in the blink of an eye. Now I had to figure out just how a girl like her and a guy like me were supposed to be in love without destroying each other. Add in her custom made ex and two disapproving sets of parents and the whole situation sounded like it was more trouble then it was worth.
