Product Description

Love hurts…

Leveled by a broken heart

Orlando Frederick has spent so long running from a real connection with another person that he can’t remember what love even feels like. The fear of being hurt by someone leaving is almost overwhelming and he can’t get past it.

Leveled by a broken body

Dominic Voss was a cop, first and foremost, until a life-threatening injury put his career on the back-burner. Unable to face the prospect that he might never go back to his old normal, he’s ready to try anything to feel alive again.

Leveled by love

As Lando and Dom try to find a way to be together, they must find a way to be themselves first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed. 7 December 2015

'Leveled' is a crossover novella between the end of the 'Marked Men' series and the beginning of the 'Saints of Denver' series. The main feature is the relationship between Orlando Frederick and Dominic Voss, both of whom were introduced and played small but memorable roles in a few of the Marked Men books. But this is the first time these boys are meeting. What makes this a crossover book is that we get cameos from many of the couples from the Marked Men series, but also a final glimpse at Sayer and Zeb who will be featured in the first Saints of Denver book. But 'Leveled' can be read as a standalone.

I really enjoyed 'Leveled'. Now I will admit, the M/M romance genre is not my thing. I would not have read this if I hadn't already been a huge fan of the 'Marked Men' series and Jay Crownover. With that said, I will be honest and say that I skimmed or skipped the sexier portions of the book. But this did not diminish the story for me. I genuinely liked Lando and Dom. I liked how the difficulties in their personal lives were explored and dealt with (which in Lando's case was quite welcome, as it was a long time in coming). I liked getting to know them. I felt their connection and chemistry to be genuine. And despite being a novella, I still felt that I got the complete picture of this love story between Dom and Lando. And the bonus was seeing many of the past characters and a glimpse of the future. I was initially hesitant on reading 'Leveled,' but I'm glad I took a chance on it. Now I'm definitely looking forward to the 'Saints of Denver' series.

I also hoped that Orlando would get his own book. From the moment I first met him in Rule he's been this background character that I wanted to know more about or more of. I thought a book about Orlando and Remy was the next step but after reading this, I think I like this option better. Dominic has been the best. Since meeting him in Asa's book, I knew he deserved a book because he was a fearless protector and I wanted to really know him. The fact that he was hurt in Asa's book doubled my curiosity. I fell in love with both of these characters all over again. They are the epitome of cuteness. Lando needed help healing from the death of Remy and Dom needed help helping from his terrible accident on the police force. They both came together and it was like fireworks. This made for a really good book. I can't wait until Built is released.

"You're never been afraid to love anyone. Don't start now."

This story was a story of two men, both broken in their own way, trying to overcome the fear of unknown, of opening their hearts to another human being who has a possibility to crush it - even unintentionally - of learning to see past the fear, to embrace the life and let themselves love again; be open for failure and pain, but also happiness bigger than anything they'd ever known before. Lando was one of the characters I wished happily ever after for the most, and I'm so glad he got it with a guy whose heart is as big as a freaking mountain. Dom is a big mountain of a man physically, but his heart is just as big. These two stole my heart right away - and I loved seeing them overcome their struggles and find their happiness, together.

"When we were together it was like love wrapped around us in a cozy blanket and for all his talk about working for it and appreciating the results of conquering something that was hard, being in love with each other was easy and really no struggle at all."

This was Jay Crownover working her magic again, wrapping us in the world full of Denver's hottest guys and most beautiful girls, ripping our hearts out with her heart-breaking words and mending them, pulling them back together with the beautiful ones. Warmly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Knocked flat on his a$$... 9 November 2015
By Theresa Esterline - Published on

What a great story! Many of the Marked Men make an appearance. This book hit both men hard, Lando figuratively with his protected heart and Dom physically when pushing himself too much during PT. Love and loss can do that, but this story is about overcoming the hurt and pain to move on with your life. And now a bit about the story...

Dom has always wanted to be a cop and now his injuries have him side lined. The Archers know an awesome physical therapist, Lando, and get the two connected. Only problem is the connection is there immediately. Dom doesn't want to scare off his chance to chase the bad guys. Lando doesn't want his heart broken again. They both must take risks to get what they want in the end.

Favorite passages:
- If the guy across from me was a cherry-red Ferrari, then I was a rusted-out and battered John Deere tractor in comparison.
- “I can’t live my life waiting for it not to hurt before I start existing again.”
- “In my experience as long as he treats you right and appreciates you then no man is the wrong kind of man.”
- “Most things that are easy aren’t worth much. It’s the things you have to work for that matter the most.”
- Bad stuff happens sometimes and it happens to people we care about. You can’t live life insulated because you are scared of getting too close.

I've read all the marked men novels and the first Saint of Denver novel. I've enjoyed them all, some more than others. There are often sentences that go on forever and ever and seem to never end. I often find myself distracted and re-reading them to make sure I get the meaning and know who the person is speaking them. At times I think it is one character when it is really the other. Its very distracting to the story line and frustrating. But the over all story is engaging. And keeps me reading. The Dom and Lando's story had so much potential. I'm sorry to say that this book felt flat for me. There were so many missed opportunities. It could have been so much bigger and so much more than it was. It was an important story to tell but It felt rushed and in that lacking the story these two deserved. Or just lacking I. The connection between the two series. The point of this novella was to bridge the two series together. But we only met Sayer at Lando's gym briefly. And then She was seen at the bar as was man in question she was interested in. But neither by name. By Lando's guess. There were references about a five year old boy, but that boy doesn't appear until sayer and zebs story. Hardly a lead up to that story line. Or any real transition between the two series. Not sure were the saints series is going and not sure why there has to be a different series and not just a continuation of the series. Time will tell I guess. I'm not very curious about the lawyer and bad girl in the next book. I'm not as engaged as I was before. I think it may be some time before I read it after it comes out. If I remember and make time to read it at all.
