His life is chaos and confusion. It’s a storm of uncertainty and raging emotion.

Sutton Warner is a mess. Everything in his life feels like it’s unraveling.

He’s let a lot of people down lately, including his daughter. Sutton always promised his little girl he would never disappoint her and that he would always be there when she needed him. Until he wasn’t.

The truth is, he’s used to disappointing the women in his life. First was his mother who couldn’t find a reason to stick around when he was growing up. Then there’s his ex. The woman who takes unbridled delight in making his life incredibly complicated. Luckily, his daughter is still young enough to believe her old man is some kind of hero. But, he knows the day is coming when she realizes the truth, which is, he’s just a man with some serious flaws and a list of ever-growing weaknesses.

Finally, there’s the woman he’s desperately trying to forget with every shot tossed back and each pill popped.

He more than disappointed Emrys…he almost got her killed.

 Her love is steady and sure. It’s a shelter shaped by conviction and silent assurance.

 Emrys Santos is lost. Everything in her life feels pointless and futile.

 She’s been busy running away from her feelings and all the people who love her the most—including her best friend, the one person who knows exactly what she’s been through. They promised to always stick together and to lean on one another. It was a promise Em had to break so she could lick her wounds and figure out her next move. For once, there is no easy way out of the tangled web of emotions she’s caught up in, and right now, she recognizes that all roads lead back to Wyoming…and back to Sutton.

The man she nearly got killed.

Shelter is a standalone novel, the second book in the Getaway series, which features the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women who dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

    This was so fun with the females getting to be the heroine. I really felt like it was uplifting women and showing how much men sometimes need to draw from there inner strength.
  • Brought me back..

    By BekinBoo
    I’ve been having a rough go at life lately so books are my escape and let me say was this an escape. I love that I can relate to the characters in a way that make the story seem so real. Also as an avid CSI lover, this brought the factor of that in as well. Perfect book all around!!
  • Great read

    By JMEOClark
    I love Jay Crownover’s books. I reread them all the time. Not your typical, predictable contemporary. A change of pace. The Warner boys are irresistible. I can’t wait for Lane’s book.
  • Shelter

    By Texas Tawnya
    Just like all her books, you won’t want to put it down. Jay always gets to the happy ending in a way you don’t necessarily expect but that makes sense for the characters. Her books take on new perspectives and are outside the norm.
  • Must One-Click Author

    By Aras40
    Jay Crownover continues to be a one-click author for me. I loved "Retreat" the first book in the Getaway Series and was excited to start Sutton and Emrys story and see where this ride was going to go. Their story has it all, drama, suspense, romance, chemistry, and redemption. I was immediately drawn in and couldn't stop reading until I finished (which is a common occurrence when I read one of Jay's books). I love that Jay always writes these multi-dimensional female characters. Emrys is a character that I think many can relate to and I loved watching her come into her own. Emrys and Sutton find what they need in each other and it is a wonderful process to watch. You don't necessarily need to read "Retreat" to read "Shelter" but you really should. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
  • An emotional journey

    By Kkdavy723
    I was so excited to read this story after we got a little taste of Em and Sutton in Retreat. This is a story where both Em and Sutton have to overcome a lot. It took me awhile to get into this story, it definitely didn’t hook me from the beginning. Once I got into it I couldn’t put it down and was sad to see it end. The chemistry between Em and Sutton was incredible. It’s truly an emotional journey. I highly recommend this book and look forward Lane’s story! *gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
  • Something about cowboys

    By Loren Rivers
    If you haven’t read anything from Jay you’re missing out! Go ahead and take a vacay from work and settle in. This is by far my favorite series. Em & Sutton’s story was incredible. After every one of Jay’s books I think a story couldn’t be any better & every time she surprises me. This book is sure to please everyone who picks it up. And who knows, you might realize you want to go out and find your own cowboy.
  • So Good!!!
