Book Review: Rule by Jay Crownover

(Marked Men Series, bk #1)
By Jay Crownover


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.

Candie's Review: 
Dear lord how I loved this book! Thank you Kara for recommending this to me! The focus of the story revolves around Rule Archer and his friends that work in a Tattoo Shop. He’s completely covered in tats and has a Mohawk that changes color every other day. Quintessential bad boy, Rule works hard and plays hard, never settling down with one girl. He’s known Shaw for half of his life as she used to date his brother who was killed in a tragic car accident. In his mind, Shaw is way off limits and doesn’t see her as someone that he could or would ever date. It’s not until Shaw has way too much to drink on her birthday and makes a pass at him does he realize that there is a lot more to her than he ever realized.
I admired Shaw’s character as she had a huge weight on her shoulders for several years and it wasn’t just that she loved Rule. I don’t want to give too much away, but this story will pull at your heartstrings as well as make you drool.

The secondary characters in the book were just as memorable and loveable! Jet’s story is up next in the series and I can’t wait for Rule’s older brother Rome‘s book to be released later in the year.

Make sure you have some time on your hands when you pick up this book, because you are not going to want to put it down!

Thank you Jay Crownover for creating a series with such dynamic characters that leaves you wanting more and more!

Rating: 5 Stars - Perfection
