    1. See my full review at Sinfully Sexy and enter to win signed copies of the Marked Men series.5 "Last Love" Stars!Rowdy is book five in Jay Crownover’s Marked Men series. I am a hardcore fan of this series and therefore am always anticipating the next book. All the Marked boys have woven their way into my heart and I have come to love their “merry band of misfits” wholeheartedly. This author definitely delivered when it came to the execution of this book. The storyline is both sad and sweet, [...]

    2. 5 ‘First and last’ stars!I absolutely love the Marked Men series. Sadly, ever since Rule, none of them have measured up. Even though Rule is still, and probably always will be my favorite of the Marked Men- Rowdy sure gave him a run for his money! Out of books 2-5, this was by far the best for me! Rowdy is the fun blonde in the group. He never has a girl for too long, he’s always having a good time and going with the flow. He doesn’t do relationships because he’s been left by every per [...]

    3. 4,5 Second Chance Stars. Rowdy loved one girl in his life. And she broke her heart. So now he only have relationships on his terms: physical and don’t plan on falling in love again. But then Salem enters in the picture when she starts working with him. Salem is *that girl* sister and for a long time she was the only person Rowdy relied on, until she left, running from a little town that wouldn’t accept her and leaving Rowdy shattered. Her returning opens new wounds and feelings between them [...]

    4. 3.5 "It's not you, it's me" stars I wanted to love this book, I really did. It just wasn't meant to be. Rowdyis the story of Rowdy (duh) a hunky tattoo artist with a sexy pompadour, and Salem a Hispanic pin-up type girl who comes to work for Rowdy's shop. Turns out Salem and Rowdy knew each other when they were kids, until Salem fled the restrictive home in a small Texas town and left Rowdy an abandoned kid in the dust. Ten years later they meet again, and Rowdy ain't happy about it.I somewhat e [...]

    5. OMGJay Crownover can I just say that you are awesome. Rule Blew me away with his bad boy charm.Jet swept me away with his dedication and passion. Rome knocked me down with his Intense nature and air of mystery. Nash. (haven't read his book yet, but the dude is seriously kick ass)And now Jay Crownover you have added to the awesomeness that is the 'Marked Men' Series by giving me Rowdy's story. I mean whats next are you going to throw Asa into the mix Wait a minuteEdit: But that cover tho

    6. 4.5StarsRowdy and Salem met when they were kids and formed an amazing friendship. Salem was the wild child, always looking to escape her parents strong religious values. Rowdy was in foster care, with no surviving family, and Salem became his family. While Salem was the girl he trusted, encouraged him, she wasn’t the girl he was in love with. No he saved that for Salem’s sister Poppy. When Salem turned 18 she left her parents home and ran away with her boyfriend. While her focus was to just [...]

    7. 4-4.5 StarsI'm short on time, so this won't be a proper review, but anywayThis was really good. Once again, Jay-she-who-cannot-possibly-use-a-normal-name-EVER-Crownover has delivered another awesome installment to this series. I was really looking forward to Rowdy and Salem's book and this definitely delivered (whew!). Rowdy was a cutie and I really dug Salem. She was a confident chick - and after the self-esteem drain that was Saint from the previous book - Salem rocked my casbah. But what I wa [...]

    8. Rowdy and Salem have a lot of history. She knew him as a kid and was there for him in ways nobody else was. He was in love with her sister. There was always a connection but when she left, Salem left a big hole in his heart. A heart that was then shredded by her sister in a different way. When a wise mutual friend brings them back together, the connection changes. They are attracted to each other as more than friends. They have quite a few issues to work through but as they do, their relationshi [...]

    9. 4-ish stars!I liked this book much better than I did Nash. Salem is a kick-ass heroine and Rowdy is just delish. I know some of you might have reservation about the fact that Rowdy was involved with Salem's sister before and that Rowdy considered Poppy the 'one' except that she rejected him. I have reservations too simply because I don't want my heroine to be the second best or the default choice for the hero, KWIM?Well, let me put your fears and concerns to rest. Jay Crownover did a stellar job [...]

    10. 4 Realizing Love Can Be Real * * * * Spoiler FreeI happened on the Marked Men series by Jay Crownover and never looked back. I was drawn into this self made family and became a distant cousin from afar. I was able to root for them, wish them to overcome all of the trials and hurdles to find their way to the women who held their hearts. The author created a flesh and blood world I could believe and I was there for every installment. This book focused on Rowdy was no exception.It was intense; laye [...]

    11. ***5 Big "First Last" stars for Rowdy & Salem***I really envy those guys All of them Boys and girlsThey had build a strong and so powerfull bond between them that made me so jealousThey had create their own family and every member of this family is loveable and made complete all the othersI would give anything to have those kind of people in my life and i will say for once again that i 'm so happy that i discover that series and i adore every single storyI'll keep saying that this series is [...]

    12. 4 THE LAST STARS“I always thought it was the firsts that matter, but now I know that it’s the lasts that stay with you.” Well, this was a great read! I really enjoyed Rowdy St. James and Salem Cruz. I knew I already loved Rowdy from all the other books and hoped I’d like Salem. She did not disappoint. She was a kick-ass heroine who was independent, strong-willed and has made her own way.These two were best friends and first loves, even though neither of them realized it. This was a great [...]

    13. Luvd it luvd it luvd it This book is just great I really enjoyed it I 've liked Rowdy from the beginning but I 've liked them al Ye I m just greedy ; ) but Rowdy never seemed to lose his temper or getting into arguments he is just so laid back until he meets Salem again no one really knows much about Rowdys life before Phil brought him to Denver but Salem was part of the past that he had forgotten he had to forget the Cruz sisters were his past an he needed to keep them there he didn't want his [...]

    14. ***3.75 Stars***"You sort of feel like where I always wanted to be."I loved Salem and Rowdy.The history that Rowdy and Salem share is felt from the very first page. Both of their childhoods broke my heart and I could see why they bonded and clung to each other. Rowdy was the lonely boy next door, living with a foster family after the death of his mother. Salem was the girl next door burdened by the rules and strict church-going lifestyle enforced by her father. They found a comfort and ease with [...]

    15. It's no secret I've felt this series has gone so down hill. I really didn't like the last 2 books at all. I'm happy to say Rowdy was amazing!! Perfect second chance romance with no over the top angst. Hot and steamy. I liked both characters! Finally a chick that didn't lose her self in these books. Way to make a comeback Jay!

    16. Are u fucking kidding me!!!! I just went through book 2, 3 , and 4 in 3like 3 or 4 days and now I have to wait 5 MONTHS for Rowdy!!! :( well this blows! But this series is definitely worth waiting for, so here I go. just waiting.d waitingStill waiting.Love the cover, not quite how I pictured him but the guy is still cute and I'm still waiting. . patiently. .

    17. There was nothing really remarkable here. I actually read a very similar book just last week. IMO, Rowdy was a big whiny crybaby. He's still holding a grudge over something that happened over a decade ago, when he was fifteen! Damn son, that's a long time to be up in arms over something. It's is not like Salem did something unforgivable, she just moved out when she was 18 because she couldn't stand to live under her tyrannical father anymore. Understandable. Why is he still crying about that? Hi [...]

    18. 3,5 Salem es todo un personaje y su relación con Rowdy -el vivo ejemplo de que se puede ser buena persona sin ser ñoño- muy bonita y entrañable, sin dejar de ser sexy, eh? Me encanta cómo se compenetran, incluso en la estética rollo años 50 que llevan los dos. La historia de los Cruz y Poppy es muy triste, espero que la hermana de Salem tenga su propia historia para resarcirse.Cada vez me gustan más las historias de estos Marked Men y sus parejas, pena que no me acabe de convencer la man [...]

    19. BESTCOVEREVER!!!!HE'S SO F*CKING BEAUTIFUL!!! PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT!!Sept. 29thMe:OCTOBER 22ndJay Crownover I. LOVE. YOU!!No tengo palabras para describir este asombroso libro!Rowdy es un libro poderoso, lleno de emociones e increíblemente intrigante. Todos los capítulos están increíblemente bien escritos y la trama no se pierde en ningún momento.Estoy sin palabras con este libro y creo que es muy dificil superar algo escrito así de bien.

    20. 3 Dowdy Rowdy Stars I will probably be in the minority here cuzI thought this was ok. I skimmed probably 30-40% towards the end as I could not for the life of me connect with these characters. This was much better then Nash, for sure, but I think this series just can not beat the 1st book for me. Which is probably why I throw up in my mouth a bit when we get the obligatory reunion with all of the other 200 characters from the other books ala a Samantha Young or Abbi Glines series I am trying to [...]

    21. A heartrending, seductively sweet and vibrantly charged story about first kisses, second chances and the one true and last love.“I always thought it was the firsts that matter, but now I know that it’s the lasts that stay with you… I want you to be the last girl that touches any and all parts of me, Salem, and that means so much more than a first.”When Salem Cruz was old enough she left her hometown of Loveless. Escaped her parents that ruled her life with tyranny. Left her beloved young [...]

    22. "Dedicated to anyone who is trying to figure out where they are supposed to be. Don’t worry, friends, the universe has a plan for you; you just need to listen to what it’s trying to tell you and you’ll eventually end up exactly where you were always meant to be."-Jay Crownover With an opening dedication like that from the amazing Jay Crownover, I knew this book was going to be amazing! Not only did I find inspiration in Rowdy and Salem's story but it was a personal reminder to me that life [...]

    23. Coming October 21st 2014 by William Morrow Paperbacks**Eh, I still like NASH's cover the most!!*After the only girl he ever loved told him he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his boots and decided he was going to do everything in his power to live up to his nickname. Life was all about a good time, good friends and never taking much too seriously. Rowdy learned his lesson early on, when you care that much about anything it can destroy you, and he never wants to r [...]

    24. A super hot romance with lots of heart, sexiness and style. Rowdy and Salem’s love story has got to be one of my favorites in the Marked Men series!Sizzling. Sexy. Sultry. Super-freakin’ hot. I couldn’t get enough of Rowdy St. James and Salem Cruz. Their story felt so very original and fresh. Their distinctive, individual styles made the entire narrative feel real and vivid, full of tan skin, ruby streaks, slickly styled hair, bloodred lips and bright ink. There was color and style everywh [...]
