Jay Crownover könyvei a rukkolán
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 - Az igazság bajnoka
Titus King feketén-fehéren látja a világot, számára kizárólag jó vagy rossz létezik. Még tinédzserként elhagyta a családját, hogy esélye legyen egy jobb életre. Azonban az ország egyik legveszélyesebb városában rendőrtisztként dolgozva rá kellett ébrednie, hogy itt szinte minden a szürke valamely árnyalata. Egy új bűnöző feltűnése a Pointban véres leszámolással és pusztítással fenyegeti a várost, Titusra pedig még a törvény betartatásánál is fontosabb feladat vár: meg kell védenie a szeretteit. Már így is meggyengült erkölcsi tartását próbára teszi egy újabb kísértés, mikor visszatér a városba a gyönyörű és titokzatos Reeve Black. A lány legalább olyan veszélyes, mint a gonosz, aki el akarja pusztítani a Pointot, mert Titusnak szüksége van rá - méghozzá nem pusztán szakmai okokból. Reeve jól tudja, mennyire halálos a Pointra leselkedő új veszély, mégsem menekül el, inkább segíteni akar. Sok mindent kell jóvátennie, és talán a szívdöglesztő zsaru az egyetlen ember, aki mellett megtalálhatja a lelki békéjét. Miközben az egész város a közelgő nagy leszámolástól retteg, Titus és Reeve a tűzvonalban állnak és elszántan harcolnak.
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 - Recovered

Jay Crownover - Mejor cuando es atrevido
Race Hartman era lo suficientemente atrevido, lo suficientemente listo y estaba lo suficientemente perdido para llevar la corona. Los lugares como La Punta siempre tendrían cosas malas y gente mala, pero el hombre al frente de toda esa maldad podría minimizar la devastación. Race tenía un plan, pero ¿podría evitar la destrucción total sin destruirse a sí mismo? Brysen Carter siempre había visto al hermano de su mejor amiga como lo que realmente era: demasiado guapo, demasiado embaucador y demasiado peligroso como para acercarse. Dejarse arrastrar por el brillo deslumbrante de Race resultaba muy tentador, pero Brysen sabía que al final acabaría quemándose. Cuando comenzó a recibir mensajes amenazadores y alguien intentó atropellarla en el aparcamiento, la única persona interesada en protegerla era el único hombre al que no podía permitirse tener. A veces ser atrevida era la única manera de mantenerse con vida. Pero, ¿permitiría que Race le salvase la vida? aunque eso significara entregarse a él?
Jay Crownover - Mejor cuando es rebelde
Os presentamos a Shane Baxter. Sexy, enigmático y peligroso, Bax no solo procedía de las malas calles, sino que era toda una institución en los bajos fondos de La Punta.

Jay Crownover - Respect
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess who called a corrupt kingdom home sweet home. Protected and sheltered from the worst the world had to offer, she fell in love with the crumbling city that burned and blazed around her. Every dirty corner, every scary shadow, found a place within her heart. So did a man who was violent and dangerous, just like the streets she claimed as her own. He was all business and brutality, except when it came to her. With her, he was calm, caring, and heartbreakingly patient. He warned her over and over that he wasn't the man for her, but she refused to listen. She never expected either the streets or their enforcer to hurt her, since she'd given her heart so completely to both. She should have known the streets in the Point were always going to be savage, and so was the man committed to keeping control of them in the hands of criminals and bloody kingpins. Blindsided by a betrayal which cut so deeply she was sure the wounds would never heal, the princess fled the home she loved and the man who broke her heart. Throwing away her rusted, twisted crown was supposed to help her forget. All it did was make her long for everything she left behind. She told herself she would never go back, but in this tormented kingdom, family is everything. Eventually, she has no choice but to return. While she was gone, the people who loved her worked hard to make the city safe, and the man who destroyed her sank deeper into the darkness. Going back shouldn't feel like surrender... but it does. As this pretty princess hovers on the edge of the unknown, the past attacks with a vengeance. It's a good reminder that puppy love eventually grows up and turns into something with sharp teeth and one hell of a bite. She never asked for the keys to the kingdom. She'd much rather go out and build her own.

Jay Crownover - Retreat
Every once in a while, you need to get away from it all. I was a woman on the edge, shaken and shattered after a breakup that felt like it tore my entire world apart. My best friend, sick of watching me drown in misery and melancholy, harassed me until I agreed to go with her on a week-long wilderness retreat. She promised days spent bonding and getting in touch with our inner badasses. It was supposed to be all about the two of us roughing it and making do with the bare minimum. She assured me we were going to be pushed to our limits in ways that were unimaginable. Neither one of us could have ever guessed just how right she was. Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements. The brochure also forgot to mention the part that warned when you left civilization behind, there was no place to pack your inhibitions and fears. I was told that I would be facing a week where the only thing I should expect was the unexpected. However, no one mentioned that I was going to have to fight for my life…and my heart as soon as I ventured into the unknown. I was a pro at hiding from my feelings but when it came time to face a real threat, one that could change everything, I learned I was more of a no surrender, no retreat kind of girl. Retreat is a standalone novel, the first in the Getaway series which centers on the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women that dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.
Jay Crownover - Honor
Don't be fooled. Don't make excuses for me. I am not a good man. I've seen things no one should, done things no one should talk about. Honor and conscience have no place in my life. But I've fought and I've survived. I've had to. The first time I saw her dancing on that seedy stage in that second rate club, I felt my heart pulse for the first time. Keelyn Foster was too young, too vibrant for this place, and I knew in an instant that I would make her mine. But first I had to climb my way to the top. I had to have something more to offer her. I'm here now, money is no object and I have no equal. Except for her. She's disappeared. But don't worry, I will find her and claim her. She will be mine. Like I said, don't be fooled. I am not the devil in disguise… I'm the one front and center.

Jay Crownover - Dignity
Looks can be deceiving. I knew that most people took one look at the ink and the impossibly big and strong body it covered and decided I was a brawler…a bruiser…a beast. However, I was hardwired to be a thinker, not a fighter. I should have chosen to use my brain and talents to be one of the good guys, a hero, a man with dignity and worth. I turned my back on dignity and sold my soul to the highest bidder, deciding to dance with the devil, instead. I couldn’t figure out how to help myself, so there was zero chance I knew how to save someone else. That someone else was Noe Lee. She was the unkempt, unruly thief who was just as smart as I was and twice as street savvy. She was annoyingly adorable beneath the dirt and grime, and she was in trouble. In way over her head, I told myself it wasn’t my job to keep her from drowning. In the Point, it was sink or swim, and I wasn’t the designated lifeguard on duty. I shut the door in her face, but now she’s gone…vanished…disappeared without a trace. It took less than a second for me to realize that I wanted her back. When a woman comes along that melts all the frozen, hard things you’re made of; you’ll do anything you have to, to bring her home. What you see is not always what you get…and with a man like me, what you get is more than anyone ever bargained for.
