Ry Archer and Bowe Keller are as different as night and day. But that doesn’t stop the childhood frenemies from reconnecting whenever one of them needs some help tackling any of life’s major puzzles, like figuring out why getting what you always thought you wanted isn’t living up to all the hype. They might constantly rub each other the wrong way (except for the times when they rub each other the really-really right way), but there is no denying they’ve always made one hell of a great team. They manage to balance each other out… when they aren’t driving each other crazy.

For Ry, he thought he had the perfect girl, the one who was going to run headfirst into a methodically planned future. He was going to marry young and have the same kind of legendary, life-long romance his parents did… or so he believed. His girl was going to stand by his side as he chased his dream of being a professional football player all the way to the NFL.

He was wrong.

Now, Ry’s gotta figure out the difference between a bruised heart and a broken one, and the only person who can teach him the difference is Bowe.

Bowe always felt like she had to run before she learned to walk to keep up with her father’s musical legacy. He’s her hero, and she wants nothing more than to make him proud. Bowe’s about to figure out that maybe she wasn’t meant to be in a rock and roll band and that it is possible she let her father’s success cloud her idea of what making music should be. Bowe needs to find her own path to fame, and there’s a good chance she wouldn’t be brave enough or bold enough to start over if Ry Archer hadn’t charmed his way back into her life when she least expected it.

Some days they’re enemies. Other days they’re lovers. For a while, they were strangers. But now, it feels more like they might have always been soulmates.

Eventually, Ry and Bowe realize that letting go of an old dream and creating a new one is much easier to do with the right person by your side.

In this first book Jay brings us back to the world of the Marked Men with their children. We will follow Ryier, Rule and Shaw’s son and his story with Bowe, Jet and Ayden’s daughter.

It was a real pleasure to see all this little world and to discover their children.

Ry is much more like his mother than his father, he is athletic, has very few tattoos, is a serious boy and is there for all his friends when they have problems. Unfortunately, he has just been dumped by Aston, his long-time girlfriend and Wheeler and Poppy’s daughter. So he flees to Denver to see Bowe. The relationship between them became conflicted at some point in their lives.

Bowe has taken more from her father than her mother on some issues, she loves music, she lives for music, she wants to follow in her father’s footsteps. Ry’s arrival in Denver and her home brings back memories she could have done without. Still, she appreciates Ry’s honesty even though it forces her to realize some things about herself.

I really liked these two characters, you can feel that there is a special relationship between them, something that never ended. They are different but at the same time they complement each other perfectly. I liked the fact that they both make efforts, that they try to take control of their lives.

I had a great time with all of these characters and I must admit that I am looking forward to reading Remy and Hyde’s story as well as Daire’s because I feel that this little one is going down a bad path, as far as she is concerned she has inherited more of her father’s traits. (Rule Archer).

Quick Word: A tome pleasant to read and a real happiness to dive back into this universe.


Dans ce premier tome Jay nous ramène dans le monde des Marked Men avec leurs enfants. Nous allons suivre Ryier, le fils de Rule et Shaw et son histoire avec Bowe, la fille de Jet et Ayden.

C’était un vrai plaisir de revoir tout ce petit monde et de découvrir leurs enfants.

Ry ressemble beaucoup plus à sa mère qu’à son père, il est sportif, a très peu de tatouages, est plutôt un garçon sérieux et il est présent pour tous ses amis lorsque ces derniers ont des soucis. Malheureusement, il vient de se faire larguer par Aston, sa petite amie de longue date et la fille de Wheeler et Poppy. Il fuit donc vers Denver pour voir Bowe. La relation entre eux est devenue conflictuelle à un moment de leurs vies.

Bowe a pris plus de son père que de sa mère sur certains sujets, elle aime la musique, elle ne vit que pour la musique, elle veut suivre les traces de son père. L’arrivée de Ry à Denver et chez elle, fait remonter des souvenirs dont elle se serait bien passée. Malgré tout, elle apprécie l’honnêteté de Ry même si ça l’oblige à prendre conscience de certaines choses la concernant.

J’ai beaucoup aimé ces deux personnages, on sent bien qu’il y a une relation particulière entre eux, quelque chose qui ne s’est jamais fini. Ils sont différents mais en même temps se complète parfaitement. J’ai aimé le fait qu’ils fassent tous les deux des efforts, qu’ils essaient de prendre en main leurs vies.

J’ai passé un excellent moment en compagnie de tous ces personnages et je vous avoue que je suis assez impatiente de lire l’histoire de Remy et Hyde mais aussi celle de Daire parce que je sens que cette petite part sur une mauvaise pente, pour le coup en ce qui la concerne elle a plus hérité des traits de son père. (Rule Archer).

En bref : Un tome agréable à lire et un vrai bonheur de se replonger dans cet univers.
