Editorial Reviews


“Deliciously real, raw, and romantic. Jay Crownover is amazing!” (Monica Murphy, New York Times bestselling author)

“A wildly addicting read. You’ll love Rule, the man and the book! ” (Cora Carmack, New York Times bestselling author of LOSING IT on Rule)

About the Author

Jay Crownover is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Marked Men and Welcome to the Point series. Like her characters, she is a big fan of tattoos. She loves music and wishes she could be a rock star, but since she has no aptitude for singing or instrument playing, she’ll settle for writing stories with interesting characters that make the reader feel something. She lives in Colorado with her three dogs.

Wow...just wow. I LOVED the first two books in the series but this one was so difficult to get through. I really have no idea where to start. I am not a person who believes that romances have to be picture perfect and tied with a pretty bow....but really REALLY? That was the ONLY direction you could go with this story??



I understand the concept of a writer wanting to go on a different path. I understand not wanting to write the same story over and over again. After all, there are several characters in the series and they will all ultimately end up happily every after; you have to mix it up a little - I get it. I do not think that a one night stand followed by an unplanned/unwanted pregnancy was the way to go here. I did not find it cute, sexy, or romantic at all. It truly made me sick to my stomach. I loved Cora and Rome before I read this story and now...I am terrified to read Nash. There was hardly any build up at all. What exactly is their relationship built on, a few orgasms and some sass? Sorry...I just can't. It was ridiculous and sadly predictable. I even remember saying, "Oh great, she's going to end up pregnant after the first time. That's where this is going. (Some pages later) Yup! I was right."

Cora had her heart broken by her ex and finds out that he is getting married. She is looking for the perfect man, someone whom she does not have to "fix" or put up with his ****. What does she get? Some severe PTSD and a baby...awesome...true love right there. I work in the mental health field and let's just say...an orgasm and a few nice words does not repair trauma...sorry it just doesn't.

First I want to start off on a good note by saying I loved Rule (written by the same author). Then I read Jet, the companion book to Rule, and thought not as good...not really even close. But I decided to give Rome a chance none the less because hello, hot soldier and brother to Rule, how could this go wrong? Well it went all kinds of wrong. I get that Jay Crownover obviously writes what she knows, and she knows and loves tattoo guys, but come on lets change the formula a bit girl. She is a talented writer so I know it is in her, but it is like she does not trust herself enough to stray a little bit with her writing. You can still write about your "marked men" just change the story up a little.
I liked Rome enough as a character I guess, but found myself completely detached from Cora. She was a girl that was supposed to be so tough and looking and waiting for Mr. Right but a few minor encounters with Rome and his "bad boy" attitude and good looks have her giving in rather quickly. There was little to no build up in their relationship, or there attraction to one another for that matter so when they finally "hooked up" I was left feeling unsatisfied. They did not seem to have any chemistry at all, which is very awkward for this genre. Honestly I'm not sure exactly why it is these two wanted to get together in the first place, or what kept them together later.
Now here is my biggest complaint, and maybe I am being too hard on Jay Crownover, but I have to say it. Men do not talk like this, or have relationships with other men like she portrays in her books. Now to be fair she did not do this in Rule, but as we extended into Jet and Rome, the friendship with all the boys turned way to girlie for me.

Jay Crownover really knows how to write beautiful, yet heart wrenching tales. She embeds her stories and characters into my heart. From page one, Jay wrapped me in her beautifully tattooed arms and didn't let go. Rome's story is different from the rest. For me, it was a lot more raw because we go through the emotions of PTSD along with Rome. It was painful to read and painful to stand by to watch him unleash his demons on those around him. With Rule, I fell head over heels. SIGH. With Jet, I learned I can most definitely swoon over a rocker. With Rome, I wanted to be his friend, his confidant, and savior. I wanted to give the big guy a huge bear hug and never let go. BUT Cora had the same idea as me. : )

Cora is one of my favorite characters out of the whole series. Her boys are so lucky to have such a colorful and bold little chic around to either knock them on their booties when needed or be an impenetrable defense when things get rough in their lives. Rome learns he need a 'Cora', in his life too, but she is so not his type and Rome is most definitely not her picture perfect future.

Let me tell ya, I cried just about every other page and there were some chapters where I could not stop crying! It was a sob fest galore!! Rome was written with so much REAL heartache, you would think that it was written about actual people. It was written with so much depth and soul. It was wonderful , and healing, to revisit old characters like Shaw and Rome. This book is going to stay with me for a very long time. I am so grateful for amazing authors like Jay Crownover!
