REVIEW: Leveled by Jay Crownover

Leveled is the prequel novella in Crownover's Saints of Denver series, a spin-off of the much beloved Marked Men series. Still recovering from wounds inflicted while on duty, Dominic Voss can't wait to get back to work on the police force.  He's ready for the grueling physical therapy dished out by Orlando Frederick. Their mutual attraction pushes any chance at a professional relationship to the limit; however, each just might be what the other needs in order to overcome past tragedies and embrace the future.

Fans of Crownover's work have long awaited a full circle story not only for Royal's best friend and ex-partner Dom but also for Lando, Remy's former partner who has trudged through the grief and pain of losing Remy is such a tragic way.   Leveled is characteristic of Crownover's style and intricate character building. The novella is just as much about these two men's identity seeking as it is an erotic romance. What follows is a steamy same sex courtship, so readers not prepared for this be forewarned.

I enjoyed the story for its sense of closure and hopefulness regarding these two characters. It does help set the stage for the spin off series since Built's female protagonist, Sayer, makes an appearance as do a few other fan favorites.

Final rating: 4 out of 5 stars
