Review: Leveled by Jay Crownover

Title: Leveled

Author: Jay Crownover

Synopsis:

We all need a hero...let the Saints of Denver begin

Orlando Frederick knows what it is to be leveled by pain. Instead of focusing on his own, he’s made it his mission to help others: sports stars, wounded war vets, survivors of all kinds. But when Dom, a rugged, damaged, sinfully attractive cop, makes his way into Lando’s physical therapy practice, he might be the biggest challenge yet. Lando loved one stubborn man before and barely survived the fallout. He’s not sure he can do it again.

Dominic Voss is a protector. The police badge he wears is not only his job, it’s his identity, so when he’s sidelined because of an injury, the only thing he cares about is getting back on the force. He expects Lando to mend his body, he just doesn’t realize the trainer will also have him working toward a hell of a lot more. As attraction simmers and flares, Dom sees that Lando needs repair of his own...if only the man will let him close enough to mend what's broken.

***MY REVIEW***

4 out of 5 stars

I've been waiting for Lando's story since we met him in Rule and I got to say this book completely satisfied my need for him to get his HEA. The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars was that the book fell short when it came to getting me emotionally connected to what was going on, which was a real disappoint because the book read like I was supposed to react to Lando's issues with Dom's job because he lost Remy, but I just wasn't feeling it. But that aside, the rest of the book was really good. The romance between Lando and Dom was super adorable. The two of them were so perfect together and I'm so happy that the author chose to bring them together in this novella. Also, I really loved that we got to see as much of the previous Marked Men couples as we did and any scene with them was basically a favorite especially this one family dinner scene with the Archers.

Overall, this was a pretty good romance and a perfect story to serve as a bridge between the Marked Men series and the Saints of Denver series. It gave me the perfect amount of nostalgia all the while ramping up my excitement for what's to come in the Saints of Denver series.
