{NA Minute Review} Rule (Marked Men) by Jay Crownover

{NA Minute Review} Rule (Marked Men) by Jay Crownover

Opposites in every way . . . except the one that matters

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. (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!
"At first I thought the pounding in my head was my brain trying to fight its way out of my skull after ten or so shots of Crown Royal I had downed last night, but then I realized the noise was someone storming around in my apartment." (page 1, line 1)
Rule has an exciting and steamy and emotional storyline, intriguing characters that stick with you and a hot romance. The relationship between Shaw and Rule is sweet and hot and heartbreaking and hard as they both struggle against their parents, temptations, and old habits. It also showed real true love, what it can do, what it can endure.
There was great character development, especially Rule's journey as he learns about love, trust and forgiveness. I loved the way Crownover presented tattoos and other body modifications, as a way for people to claim their own skin. I also adored the secondary characters - Rome totally stole my heart (check out my stop on the Rome book tour here on 1/6) - I'm excited to read all their stories.
