From the Back Cover
After the only girl he ever loved told him that he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his boots and set out to live up to his nickname. A good ol' boy looking for good times and good friends, Rowdy refuses to take anything too seriously, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Burned by love once, he isn't going to let himself trust a woman again. But that's before his new coworker arrives, a ghost from the past who's suddenly making him question every lesson he's ever learned.
Salem Cruz grew up in a house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn't wait to forget. But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her: the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who'd been head over heels in love with her little sister.
Now fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.

Each book gets better and better. All these boys have such a strong history separately and the brotherhood they've forged together is amazing.
Rowdy St. James has ghosts in his past that he would rather stay there. He loved and lost in an epic way and has no desire to ever feel the hurt from it again so he is a one-night-stand kind of guy. He has his self-proclaimed family and he doesn't need anything else. Until Salem Cruz comes to town specifically for him.
Salem Cruz is a bit of a gypsy. She grew up with a strict father who was the leader of a church in a small town in Texas and could not wait to get away from him even if it meant leaving behind a lost boy and her only sister. For the past ten years she's been bouncing around with no desire to create roots anywhere until she meets Phil Donovan who points her in the direction of the boy who has her heart.
Rowdy and Salem have a strong connection. They always have. But there are so many variables from the past that threaten to keep them from ever seeing a happily ever after together.
This book was great. It was timed out just right, I think. Nothing was rushed, each of them were given time to work through their own s***. I like that.
The Marked Men books *could* be read as standalone because Jay is good to recap each of them in the books pretty well, but I recommend reading them in order.
I devoured this book in a matter of hours. From the first page I couldn't put it down. Rowdy begins where Nash finishes. He runs into a part of his past, a beautiful pin girl Salem. Salem and Rowdy have history, a complicated history that they have to work through in order to create a future.
Salem storms her way into Rowdy's life making her intentions to be his future very clear. She knows Rowdy has a past with her sister but does not fully understand that history. Once she learns about there past there roles reverse and Rowdy becomes the one to storm his way into Salem's life. Salem's sister Poppy returns and the past is begins to crash down around Rowdy and Salem.
As usual, this Jay Crownover book is a 5 star read. Jay has created a family of damaged people from all walks of lie who have found there families within each other. Jay never fails to write an amazing story with characters you can't help but fall for.
“You found your family tree, Rowdy, and the branches are stronger and sturdier than most people with blood relatives have.” - Salem
“You are the last person I want to kiss. The last woman I want in my bed. 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.” - Rowdy
