Review: Rule (Marked Men, Book 1)
Author: Jay Crownover Website :: Blog :: Facebook :: Twitter
Series: Marked Men
Publication Date: December 30, 2012
Being the rebel and disappointing his family was common place for Rule. But when his best friend and twin brother died in a terrible accident the bridge tying him to his family crumbled. Living his life the way he pleased and keeping emotions hidden was the only way to survive. As a tattoo artist, he heals other's pain with his tools. But his wounds are scarred over now and the life he lives is his own...except for on Sunday's when Shaw wakes his lazy butt up and takes him to family brunch.
Shaw's life has never been the same since that night. She's kept all of his secrets even in death as she would never hurt him, even if it kills her. Shaw has always been able to balance the "look" of perfection, simply because there is no other option. With parents like hers you would think she would be strong but she's too tired to care really. Honestly? Being in love with Rule is pointless and she knows it. He sees her as his brother's girl, and she was...but she was also his, and he never knew it.
Slow-building, sexy and addicting, Rule is one of those novels that readers can easily identify with. Jay Crownover writes with perfect pace, humor and honesty - and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read about the other's in the Marked Men series. Tattoos, alpha males and the women who tame them? Sounds perfectly delicious to me!
