Today we're thrilled to have Jay Crownoever on the site to introduce you to the Marked Men Series. Asa, which comes out April 21, is the final book in the Marked Men series, which features a group of men who form a bond that defies the old adage that “blood is thicker than water.”
The key element that has always tied the Marked Men together is the idea of family being more than blood. That as you come into your own as an individual, you get to make the choices of who you dedicate your time and energy to. The friendships in this series are vast,this crew has created their own idea of family, and I take great pride in thinking you won’t ever find a more loyal or invested bunch out there in romancelandia.
Part of Rule’s journey, which ultimately led to all the other guys’ journeys, was learning to listen to the people that loved him and had his best interests at heart—always. He was so closed off, so resistant to letting anyone else inside of his battered heart that it really took his brother and his friends pointing out to him that “Hey…this girl gets you, she accepts you, she won’t try and change you, she has always—always loved you….” to get him to open his eyes. He was so stubborn that he would have never seen Shaw as anything else without that nudge.
In turn, Rule often ended up being the catalyst, the voice of reason for the rest of the guys as they met their matches along the way. He could attest to how much better life was with the right person so he became the friend handing out eye-opening advice just like his buddies did for him at the beginning.
