Book Review: Rule & Jet

Rule by Jay Crownover: 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.

The first Marked Men novel in Jay Crownover's combustible New Adult series.

TeriLyn's thoughts: Love, love, loved Rule. This was a great story and something a little different. Super emotional and angsty. Rule and Shaw both rediscovering them and uncovering truth's of their pasts. It was a heart wrenching read but just as much fun and sexy. Shaw is a great heroine. Strong, determined, questioning, adapting ... I just thought she was great. And Rule, all sexy, crazy, intense, and broken pieces of him were exciting to read. All of their friends were great as well and the family they've formed was awesome. I don't know what to say without saying too much. This was a really great story and I'm so glad I finally read it as it totally sucked me into their world. I hope there is more Rule & Shaw's story in the future. This is a must read!

Jet by Jay Crownover: 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?

TeriLyn's thoughts: Jet was FANTASTIC. I enjoyed Jet and Ayden's story just as much as Rule and Shaw's. The Marked Men books are so good, to me, because they deal with people who come from very flawed backgrounds; Jet and Ayden being no exception. They have both made their fair share of regrettable decisions and have tried to learn and grow from those mistakes. I also love this series because no matter, when these characters find each other there is a change takes place. Messing around is no longer an option. And even though the characters might not be together for the entire story, they have their reasons why and it's not for another person or some crazy love triangle. They are navigating through their lives trying to find a way to be together despite their crazy differences.

Ayden a couple of times drove me nuts with her "old me, new me" mantra. She was fighting so hard against something that was so right even if she couldn't see it at first. I loved her attitude, her ambition, and her selflessness. She has a huge heart and her moments with and advices to Shaw are some of my favorites. Jet was awesome. He had no clue what was going with his feelings for the whiskey-eyed brunette but those feelings were intense and quite enjoyable to read.

The supporting cast was once again excellent too. They have all become one big family despite their differences, their upbringings, and their shitty home lives. They look out for each other, care about each other, and are quite funny. I'm glad we get another book to see this tight-knit together. Great read!
