BOOK: Rome by Jay Crownover

MY RATING FOR IT: 4 stars

SYNOPSIS

Fun and fearless, Cora Lewis knows how to keep her tattooed “bad boy” friends at the Marked in line. But beneath all that flash and sass is a broken heart. Cora won’t let herself get burned again. She’s waiting to fall in love with the perfect man—a baggage-free, drama-free guy ready for commitment. Then she meets Rome Archer.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn, rigid, and bossy. And he’s returned from his final tour of duty more than a little broken. Rome’s used to filling many roles: big brother, doting son, supersoldier—but none of those fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the dark demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer through it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes a blinding flash of color in a sea of gray.Perfect may not be in the cards, but perfectly imperfect could just last forever . ..

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

Well, this book restore my faith in Jay Cronower , because for me at least Jet was kind of .. meh!! , so I was a bit put out by the series .what a huge mistake!!!! This one was great.

Rome is, our beloved Rule’s older brother, but he’s not been the same for quite a while , ever since the final tour in the Army . something’s of and everyone is upset about it , because he’s not the fun loving guy that he used to be , and now he’s being  kind of an ass,

I mean I get it, he’s scared by war, that’s pretty understandable, but he’s also very hurt about the lies that where uncover in the other book about Rule and Shaw.

Everyone in the group of friends is trying to be understanding, but spunky, hell racer Cory has had enough with his somber attitude and his mean comments towards her friends, ( she is a very small , tattoo pixie that is  very protective of her friends), so she puts him in his place and they get in this huge fight.

“I could’ve punch him in the nose, but there wasn’t a stepladder anywhere handy.”

Cora has her own troubles, because she got her heart broken by her fiancé, when he was cheating on her for so many years while she was picturing a perfect life together. Soooo obviously she has some trust issues, and she’s not going to settle for anything less than mister perfect!!

“It was hard to trust someone enough to let them all the way in when I didn’t think they deserved to be there. -Cora”

Well as faith will have it Rome and Cora eventually find them selves in a position where Rome is in need of Cora’s help , and actually Cora finds her self kind of attracted to the guy ( who wouldn’t he’s yummy , all big skilled muscles and piercing blue eyes to die for !! )

Eventually Rome realizes that she is a very different kind of girl and after a hell of a night of steaming passion they star to see a bit more of a brighter future.

“The fact that so many of my friends were stumbling headfirst into their happily-ever-after gave my tired heart hope that I couldn’t be far behind.”

They are such great characters; I find that I felt very happy when they started to have a sort of relationship, they are so opposite but so similar in many things, but they are both very afraid of letting go of their personal fears…

This book was such a great one to read, I love it, and got me all juiced up to read the next one on the series

I loved them as a couple and I love all the stuff that they had to get trough together

“This, Cora … this is as perfect as two people can be”

This one was a sweet and sexy one and I’m eager to get going with Nash!!

Jet (Marked Men #2) by Jay Crownover

17204860

BOOK: Jet  by Jay Crownover

MY RATING FOR IT : 3 1/2 Stars

SYNOPSIS.

With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn’t want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet’s dark, haunted eyes. She’s afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire.

Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships.

Will the blaze burn into an enduring love. . . or will it consume their dreams and turn them to ashes?

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT 

Well, this is the second book in the Marked men series, and to tell you the absolute truth I was kind of iffy about it. The thing is that I read some not so favorable reviews and was kind of biased about this one.

I was so iffy about it that I actually bought the audio book , thinking that maybe that way I may breeze through it more easily, which actually was ab big plus because I was able to connect a little more with the characters this way.

Eventually the time came to read it a I actually realized that it was a good book, not a great one (I mean it can’t compare to the first one Rule, because that one was great!!) but it was better than I thought which I’m so thankful about!! I really didn’t want to feel put off about this series.

Jet is the ultimate rocker , sex god, with the tattoos and piercing to prove it, he is currently living in a house with two girl (Cora from the tattoo parlor and Ayden who is Shaw’s friend from the first book) Ayden feel an instant attraction toward Jet and he feel it too, but he thinks she is too much of a nice girl for him to use and throw away like so many other girls, but the thing is he doesn’t know the real Ayden and the wild side that she is trying so hard to keep hidden.  She has this very shady past that she doesn’t want to live again so she is convinced that Jet is exactly the kind of guy that she shouldn’t be dating so she backs away and they become this kind of friend who lust after each other but never act on it.

Security would always win in any game where love or any other emotion was a consideration, and that was just the way it had to be.

 

Ayden is set on a straight and narrow path for her life, she wants a good clean boyfriend, with a steady income and a good career, and Jet is the exact opposite of that, Right!? He is the dirty Rocker with no prospect and Hot as Sin!!

Jet , loves his music , he lives for it , it gives him the outlet for all the things that don’t work in his no so perfect life, and he takes very seriously his work , he lives and breathes it. But as always he has a bit of baggage and in this case is in the form of a douchebag father and a abused mother

‘I would rather be broke and do a job I love then wealthy working a nine-to-five any day.’

 

But eventually and after fighting it for a long time  they do get together and it’s scorching hot , and most likely addictive for them , which is s problem because she can’t seem to see any future with they as a couple beyond a few night of wild hot steamy sex ( Dayummmmm!!!!!)

Sin título

On the other hand Jet is kind of feeling thing which is scary for him, and very confusing for her so…

Well I won’t give more away because otherwise I’ll take all the fun , I just say that as much as I wanted to love this character and I did a little , I couldn’t LOOOOVE LOOOVE THEM the way I loved Shaw and Rule , but I think this story is worth the while that it takes to read it , so take a chance and tell me what you think about it , maybe you’ll think I’m nutty and it’s a  great book or maybe you’ll think is gross and not readable , to each his own right?

Rule (Marked Men #1)

BOOK:  Rule (Marked Men #1)

My Rating: 4 stars

SYNOPSIS

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

MY THOUGHTS ABOUT IT

I actually never heard of this book before a few months ago it was in my kindle for so long that i had completely forgotten about it , but the dude on the cover is so hot that i took a chance…

Rule Archer is an angry, bad boy, who has tattoos, and terrible attitude , he enjoys easy women and is strange from his family ever since the lost his other half-his twin brother in a tragic accident.

on the ither hand there’s Shaw , she comes from money and is a princess,but doesn’t have a good relationship with her parents especially her Mother….( annoying woman i wanted to bitch slap her so much!)

“Opposites don’t just attract they freaking catch fire and burn the entire city down”

she used to have a relationship with Rules twin  Remy , but has always been in love with Rule…

“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.”

rule4

“I think it’s genetically impossible not to be kind of in love with him when you come equipped with a vagina. It’s just something about all that angsty, moody swagger he has that makes you want to cuddle him up and make him feel better”

After reading very dark stories , with very harsh characters this was just what I needed to clear my mind from all the terrible angst.

It´s kind of similar to the Cherrie Lynn Rock Me series (there are many similarities) but maybe this one is a little sweeter, a good and fun read…. i´cant say that i TOTALLY LOOOOOVE IT but i really like it enough that i´m reading the next book on the series.
