Rule by Jay Crownover (Marked Men #1)

17200687Blurb: 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.

3/5 Hearts

“It’s always been you even when I didn’t want it to be, even when it broke my heart over and over again. It’s just always been you.” 

Rule is about the ultimate bad boy. I'm starting to think that maybe the bad boy thing just isn't for me. It was a reasonably enjoyable book, but more like a guilty pleasure. there is plenty in the book that could be taken out without a missing a thing. 
 Both storylines with the parents are a little over the top and unbelievable. Also for a tough guy, Rule is very hard to like and I got a little tired of all his whining. 

I enjoyed some parts, hated other and in the end had a very conflicted opinion about this book. There were some steamy things in the book but they were sometimes too crude for my liking and I didn't really like how Shaw changed her whole appearance to fit Rule. 
It was an okay read, but I don't think I'll be reading this book again and I'm not sure I'll read the other ones in the series.

“You have me Shaw, any way you need me, any way you want me, you have me.”
