As with all American novels I read, I also read the reviews on Amazon.com. There are many reviews on there which talk about the errors in this book. The reviews on here don't mention much about them so I think you should be aware before reading. This is a good first novel by this author but I wish she had proof read it before publishing. Another reviewer says Editors are expensive. It didn't need an Editor, it just needed the author to actually read through her book beforehand and she would then have picked up on all the errors. Not only are there spelling and grammatical errors, there are also quite a few inconsistencies eg. the age difference between Rule and Shaw changes and at one point Rule refers to his Brother who is a Soldier as a Rock Star!

As much as the errors annoyed me, it doesn't detract from the fact this is a good story. I really enjoyed it. It reminded me somewhat of Rock Me but the H&H in this book were much better, especially Shaw, I liked her character.

Rule Archer is a Tattooist. Most of his body is covered in tattoos and piercings. He does not get on well with his parents, especially his mother. Three years ago, Rule's twin Brother, Remy died after crashing his car on the way to pick Rule up from a night out. At the funeral his mother told him it should have been him. Their relationship has obviously been strained ever since but every Sunday he has to attend a family brunch and his dead brother's girlfriend Shaw comes to pick him up. But was she his brother's girlfriend?! Rule will soon discover that he had misinterpreted their relationship.

Shaw has been in love with Rule since she was 13 years old. She was only ever best friends with his Brother.

So first of all wow these Marked Men are so hot! Rule is the first book in the series, his character is broken after a family tragedy and is slowly on a path of self destruction. Shaw is his one ray of light, the one person that is there for him, when his family turned away. I lost track of the amount of times Rule made me so mad with the way he treated Shaw and had me constantly shouting at my kindle. Shaw for me was a great character she showed strength and determination when others would have walked away. Rule's back story is heartbreaking, he really got to me and he was a character I just couldn't help fall for, amazing book and I look forward to meeting even more of these hot marked men

Summary:
Rule Archer is a tattooed, bad-ass player. It his ritual to go out and get drunk, pull a girl and get what he wants and have her leave quietly in the morning. He turns heads when he walks in a room and most females swoon after him.

Shaw Landon has been one of those girls for over 5 years. Having loved him since she first met him at 14 years old, she could never get over him. Following the death of her best friend, Remy, Rule's twin brother, Shaw still found herself wrapped up in the lives of the Archers.

Every Sunday she drags Rule from his latest acquisition and drives him to a family meal, in the hope she can keep his family together. They were more of a family to her than her own were, and she doesn't want to give up.

Rule can't stand Shaw, or doesn't have much time for her. But after her spends more time in her presence and his friends and family point out her looks, Rule begins to see Shaw in a completely different light, and his feelings and thoughts about her change him. After Shaw's birthday night, their relationship changes and so begins the rocky love life of Shaw and Rule.

My Thoughts:
ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS!! It's definitely on my list of favourites.

LOVED:

Rule; we're told all the girls can't help but pine after him due to his looks, but that followed through with his personality and attitude. Even with words Crownover portrayed his sex-appeal and angsty attitude that draws you in to his power. I didn't like him to begin with, as in his dismissive attitude towards women wouldn't attract me at all, but as soon as he starts to really see Shaw, we see the real him emerge from his pain and he becomes a bad-ass we can't help but love.

Title: Rule
Series: Marked Men (#1)
Author: Jay Crownover

When Rule starts we learn that Shaw Landon and Rule Archer already have a type of relationship and have for a while. Shaw became friends with the family when she was a teenager and due to the lack of love in her home the Archer family kind of adopted her as their daughter. When one of their sons, Remy (also Rule's twin) died their family fell apart. A few years later Shaw is dragging Rule out of bed every Sunday for breakfast with his parents.

Rule is a complicated person. When his twin died so did a part of him and his relationship with his parents deteriorated with neither side understanding or trying to fix the damage. He is a tattoo artist, wild, and of course, hot as hell with no lack of female company. Shaw on the other hand is studying to become a doctor with parents who have a very specific idea of who she should be and who she should date. She has a boyfriend, Gabe, but breaks things off with him since she's been in love with Rule for years.

Rule is completely ignorant of Shaw's feelings for him but when the two bump into one another outside of the their usual mandatory Sunday breakfast things change. A tentative relationship blooms and the dual POV in Rule really lets the reader see how their feelings change. Shaw knows that she cares a lot more for Rule than he does for her but she's willing to try dating, even though she's completely in love.
