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 standing front and center.

Excerpt

KEELYN

“What are you doing here, Nassir?”

Nassir Gates, half man and half monster. He was lethal and toxic, keeping all that sinister beauty covered up in a ridiculously expensive suit that made him look elegant and falsely civilized. To the untrained eye, Nassir was an outrageously handsome man that looked like he was on his way to a business meeting, but if you had spent any time on the streets, were familiar with life in the gutter, there was no missing who he really was, what he was. The top of the food chain. If you knew about what it took to make it where I came from, you could look at Nassir and see that he not only thrived in chaos, but was comfortable there. He even managed to make it look good.

I left all of that behind. I liked Denver. I liked the laid-back vibe. I liked the monotony. I liked the predictability. I liked that I could walk to my car after my shift at the diner and not have to worry about taking a knife in the ribs or getting a revolver shoved in my back. I liked that I didn’t have to shake my ass or get naked to pay my bills. I liked that here, soccer dads were just that, and weren’t secretly banging hookers in the back room or gambling the family’s grocery money away at an illegal poker game. Most importantly I liked that I didn’t have to look my biggest addiction, my worst temptation, in the eye every single day and pretend like I didn’t want him. Here I didn’t have to deny that I had been infatuated with him for years. I was foolishly obsessed with this particular devil in a designer suit and I knew he was absolutely detrimental not only to my safety but to the thing I valued above all else…my independence.

After a childhood spent evading the hands of my mother’s overzealous and unhinged boyfriends and barely escaping the clutches of a sick and twisted stepfather, and too many years working my ass off—literally—to make a life for myself, I could never risk letting myself care for Nassir the way I wanted to because I knew that if I did, I would become nothing more than his, and I refused to be any man’s possession or accessory.

When the opportunity arose to take off without an explanation or without looking like I was running from him and the promise and future I saw so clearly in his eyes, I grabbed it. Ran away with both my heart and my tail tucked between my legs. But now he was here in this fragile and predictable paradise and I wanted to stab him with the broken pen and jump in his lap and put my mouth on his smirking lips all at the same time.

You’re here, Key. Where else would I be?”

Honor
Jay Crownover

Who knew the devil was an sexy, intense, warrior disguised in an expensive suit and a smile you love to hate?
Nassir is a beautiful contradiction of a man. The villain and the hero. Dark and dangerous but passionate and protective. Nassir is everything you want to hate but all the things you can't help but love.
Keelyn is fighting. Fighting for her independence while denying herself the love that she so desperately craves. Running from a life that she thinks she needs to escape but realizing that it's the same life she was meant to live.
Wow! This book is everything and more. A rollercoaster of emotions, Honor is addictive and, at times, gut wrenching. Jay Crownover sucked me in and rendered me immobile with a story that was so intense that I fell deeper and deeper with every turn of the page. Raw, heartbreaking, ominous and dare I say, beautiful. Honor was one of the stories that will tear you apart and put you back together in glorious fashion. You will think about this book for days after you've finished and you will be begging for the next fix.
I may not want to live in the Point but I will forever be grateful that I get to experience it through the eyes of Jay Crownover. As I stumble through this review trying to find the right words to express my feelings I will leave you with one simple request. Read this book! It's powerful and explosive and will leave you stripped bare and wondering how you will ever find something to compare.
~ Kimberly Anne
