“A wildly addicting read. You’ll love Rule, the man and the book! ” (Cora Carmack, New York Times bestselling author of LOSING IT)
From the Back Cover
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.
The first Marked Men novel in Jay Crownover's combustible New Adult series.

A few years ago I picked up a book by Jay Crownover, entitled Rule. At first, I cringed… The book was a lot more explicit in many ways than most of the books I’d read… But, there was something there that drew me in. A truth behind the fiction that would not let me go. I fell in love with the characters and their stories. I read every book in the Marked Men series that Jay had published at the time. And waited for more.
Each one of these HEA’s is painful, and beautiful, and raw. Each one writes a message on the reader’s heart that is as indelible as the ink on the skin of the characters Ms. Crownover writes.
They feel real. Their triumphs and their tragedies are inseparable-- darkness and light bound together into something worthwhile and beautiful. Their pain is mine, as is their joy, and I am so glad I took this journey.
If you want to come along, I recommend you start at the beginning, with Rule. But start anywhere… it’s worth it.
Shaw was soon to be a rich debutante, but at 14 she just felt out of place and unloved. When 16 year old Remy adopted her as his new sidekick he (and his parent and brothers: Rome and Rule) taught her what love was, in more than one way. 6 years later she is still in love but still isn't happy. Can she find more love where she has always wanted it, but where she least expects it to be returned?
- “There are probably a million and one regrets I have, and if they are going to be between us here or in bed, then let’s just stop it now, because I’m not going to do combat over my past when my future is finally starting to be something I want to invest in.”
- “You think the queen of the castle is going to let me in the ivory tower?”
- “For you to be considering someone else like that is more like turning over a whole freaking tree, not just a leaf, but good for you.”
- “I’m dying to know all about this mystical creature that got you to act human for once.”
- “I told him if he pulled my tuition I would gladly get a job as a stripper to pay my way through med school, and he hadn’t liked it one bit.”
- “Stop trying to be something you aren’t and just let her love you.”
Rule Archer. Dear God above, that man is sexy. I was instantly in love with him and felt every emotion roll off that man. His demeanor was all bad boy on the outside but the inside held something deeper. More emotional and I felt it to the core.
Shaw Landon was oh so complicated.....but in a good way. I loved her development. Her feelings for Rule were evident and strong. Her heart was on her sleeve from the moment she was introduced and I loved watching her interact with Rule, Rome, and the gang.
Jay Crownover's characters are strongly chiseled and her story line is captivating. She creates a story of hope, love, longing and complicated pasts that lead to passion and fireworks. Each page turn brings more to the story and leaves the reader dying to know more. I loved every second of this story and fell hopelessly in love with her Marked Men! I can't wait to tell you my thoughts on book 2, JET! Hats off and high flying 5 star tattoos to this talented author!

It's been a long time since I read a book of unrequited love, or more like the hero has no idea the heroine exists outside of being a siblings pesky sidekick. This was a good throwback.
Rule lives life in a take no prisoners manner, he does what he wants and he answers to no one. Rule lives the type of life Shaw desires for herself, not the "trying to please everyone and failing everyone but most of all herself" existence she's been juggling. When opposites attract sometimes they see that maybe they aren't so different after all. Maybe the one person you've overlooked has had your back and been supporting you all along.
This was fun, the writing style flowing almost like an easy conversation, I look forward to reading more of the Marked men.
