Rule by Jay Crownover

I was not really expecting a lot from this book.  I got a Kindle and was playing around with it and stumbled upon this one.  Let me say that I am so glad I did.  This book had all the elements that I, personally, love.  Tattooed bad boy check, strong heroine check, a lot of angst check, setting up to become a series check; if you love these things then read this one.  It is definitely on my best of all time list.  The predicaments in this book are real, and the characters are outstanding. I also love that it is written in Rule and Shaw’s POV. I am a huge fan of independent writer and I can not say enough good things about this book!


Rule is a rebel, who is not unknown to tragedy.  Shaw is a broken, rich girl, who doesn’t fit the mold.  Does this unlikely pair have a chance at love?

This is the updated version of Rule...all cleaned up and ready to go

I loved Rule Archer since the first moment I ever laid eyes on him. He was everything I shouldn't want and the only person I went out of my way to not try and please. He only saw me as a brat, as an entitled, stuck up princess but worse than that all he saw when he looked at me was his deceased twin brother's girl. It broke my heart because as much as I had loved Remy Archer there was never anything romantic between us and no matter how hard I tried to convince myself that loving Rule was a terrible idea, my poor heart just wouldn't listen. We tolerated each other, barely. We forged an uneasy alliance until one night I had too much to drink and changed the way we were forever. Suddenly life long secrets were no longer hidden and the one thing I always wanted for myself seemed obtainable as long as I was willing to go through hell to hold onto it.

Shaw Landon was a class act and I had no idea what to do with her. She was tied to my family, tied to the person that was my other half so I tolerated her and her haughty attitude because I didn't have any other choice. What I didn't know was that a short skirt and too many cocktails on her birthday was going to change my outlook on her for the rest of my life. Some people thought I hid behind all my tattoos and piercings, that I tried to distance myself from my dead twin, Shaw saw through it all and wasn't scared of what was underneath.
We weren't supposed to be together, weren't supposed to be anything except uncomfortable acquaintances but that all changed in the blink of an eye. Now I had to figure out just how a girl like her and a guy like me were supposed to be in love without destroying each other. Add in her custom made ex and two disapproving sets of parents and the whole situation sounded to me like it was more trouble then it was worth.

Recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, language and drinking
