Leveled by Jay Crownover…Review



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:

Leveled is the first in a new series by Jay Crownover, and admittedly the first of her work I’ve read. I know, I know…I’m a slacker! I own some of her books but just never got around to reading them, which I will now be rectifying because she knocked my socks off with this book.

Police officer Dominic Voss is broken on the outside. Physical therapist Orlando Frederick is broken on the inside. Fate put these two together for a reason…to heal. From the very beginning of this story I loved everything about these two very different characters. Dom is gruff, tough, and knows exactly who is he and is unapologetic and steadfast. Lando is a healer by nature and is scared to let love in after being hurt so deeply in the past. Lando has never been with a man proud to be with him. Proud to accept their sexuality. Until he meets Dom. Neither one was looking for any sort of relationship. Neither one expected it and there may have been some stumbles along the way, but soon enough they both realize they need to grab on tight to what they’ve found and never, ever, let it go.

My oh my, these two are SO ridiculously hot together and so well matched. They balance each other out in the most perfect of ways and they were an absolute joy to read. I seriously could NOT get enough! I was so worried they wouldn’t be able to overcome the doubts they both had during their courtship, but luckily Ms. Crownover writes some seriously kick ass characters and they managed to end up just fine. More than fine, if you ask me.

I cannot WAIT to see what’s next in this series and am hoping we get to see more of Lando and Dom…my two new fave book guys!
