The New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men series delivers a romance about a rugged Texas sheriff who must protect the woman who was once his sworn enemy…

Case Lawton comes from a family of criminals. So as the sheriff of Loveless, Texas, he’s determined to do everything by the book–until he’s called to Aspen Barlow’s office after a so-called break-in. The last thing he wants to do is help the woman who cost him custody of his son. But Aspen isn’t the heartless lawyer Case remembers, and he starts to question his long-held grudge…

Aspen is scared for her life, and Case is her last hope for protection. But to get him on her side, she’ll have to reveal the painful truth from all those years ago. Now, as they work together to track down a dangerous criminal, Case and Aspen learn to trust each other. And as the threats escalate, it becomes clear there’s a thin line between love and hate… because there’s nothing Case wouldn’t do to keep her safe.

Justified / It's All About That Cowboy (Loveless, Texas #1)Justified / It’s All About That Cowboy by Jay Crownover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

JUSTIFIED is book 1 in the Loveless, Texas series. There is a prequel to this one but it’s not necessary to read it before you dig in here (though the prequel tells the story of the younger Lawton brother…).

Case Lawton has lived his life in Loveless, trying to undo the damage to the Lawton name. His father was the former ruthless, corrupt sheriff but now Case is in charge of this small Texas town. When Aspen Barlow first moved there as a goth looking teenager, Case took her under his wing. Several years later Aspen is his biggest nemesis since she represented his ex-wife in their divorce and was “responsible” for keeping him away from his son, Hayes. But now, Aspen is in trouble and Case must protect her. Along the way, he learns that nothing is quite what it seems.

Well, there ain’t nothin’ like a hot cowboy claimin’ his woman! Whew..what a ride! Case and Aspen have an intense, complicated relationship that hits you in the gut right from page one. I’m usually too impatient to really enjoy a slow burn but Ms. Crownover did an amazing job creating just the right amount of sexy tension between these two so that I was eagerly plowing through the book. Case had a tough childhood, living under the tainted cloud of his father’s bad judgements. But in spite of his past, Case was a fair, courageous, intelligent man who, under his gruff exterior, was actually super sweet. Aspen was the outcast for most of her life but she put that aside to become a successful lawyer. She was ambitious, caring and determined to live her life humble and honest. It may have taken Case and Aspen a long time to come together but I definitely enjoyed the path to get there.

And speaking of paths, theirs was a doozy! The action began early on and it kept going until the breathtaking end. The plot was full of all kinds of wacky twists and suspenseful turns. I gotta admit, I was surprised by who the bad guy turned out to be. But even with all that happening, it didn’t overpower the romance that was building between Aspen and Case.

This book is a small town romance between a hot cowboy sheriff and a smart lawyer with an thrilling storyline and fabulous secondary characters. Told from dual POVs with a happy ending for out couple and nice segue into the the next book. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.
