The next novel in Kristen Ashley's sizzling Colorado Mountain series introduces a new electrifying relationship that turns Carnal, Colorado into a hotbed of action, romance, and suspense.
An old flame rekindled . . .
Zara Cinders always knew Ham Reece was the one, but he wasn't interested in settling down. When she found someone who was, Ham walked out of her life. Three years later, Zara's lost her business, her marriage, and she's barely getting by in a tiny apartment on the wrong side of the tracks. As soon as Ham hears about Zara's plight, he's on her doorstep offering her a lifeline. Now, it will take every ounce of will power she possesses to resist all that he offers.
Ham was always a traveling man, never one to settle down in one town, with one woman, for more time than absolutely necessary. But Ham's faced his own demons, and he's learned a lot. About himself, and about the life he knows he's meant to live. So when he hears that Zara's having a rough time, he wants to be the one to help. In fact, he wants to do more than that for Zara. A lot more. But first, he must prove to Zara that he's a changed man.
No cone of shame for me. I enjoyed reading this book. This is my first book in the Colorado Mountain series. Even though I started with this book in the series I didn’t feel lost. KA writes her novels in such a way that each book could be read as a standalone.
Reece & Zara are the featured couple of JAGGED. I wasn’t a huge fan of their nicknames; Ham & Cookie.
Reece wasn’t into commitment and Zara watched him walk in and out of her life over the years. Some major life situations happen that make Reece realize what he is searching for in his life. Working on gaining Zara’s trust becomes his sole purpose.
Jagged wasn’t as long as KA’s other books but it had a lot going on to keep the readers interest.
