Rule (Marked Men #1) by Jay Crownover ~ Book Review!

Rule by Jay Crownover

Published: May 7th, 2013

Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks

Series: marked Men #1

Format: Kindle

Pages: 432

Main Characters: Rule & Shaw

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight--A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn’t want--and the only person she’s never tried to please. She isn’t afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won’t listen.

To a rebel like Rule Archer, Shaw Landon is a stuck-up, perfect princess-and his dead twin brother’s girl. She lives by other people’s rules; he makes his own. He doesn’t have time for a good girl like Shaw-even if she’s the only one who can see the person he truly is.

But a short skirt, too many birthday cocktails, and spilled secrets lead to a night neither can forget. Now, Shaw and Rule have to figure out how a girl like her and a guy like him are supposed to be together without destroying their love . . . or each other.

My review:

4.5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was easy to read and drew me in from the beginning. 
Rule and Shaw have known each other since they were kids. Rule is a bad boy who started getting worse when his twin brother, Remy, died. Shaw was Remy's best friend and all the Archers thought they were involved romantically. 

Rule and Shaw are total opposites. Shaw is a good girl and Rule is a bad boy. I think that was one of the things that drew me in the most. Rule can have his mood swings and sometimes is a total duche but then, he was good with Shaw and so sweet. 

Really recommend this book and can't wait to read about the other tattooed bad boys...

About the Author: 

I'm supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I'm an natural redhead even though I haven't seen my real hair color in years, I'm a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I've been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that. 
I love to write, love to read and all I'm interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.
