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

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?

Review:




Ever since Ayden Cross set her sights on rock and roll front man, Jet Keller, in Jay Crownover’s Rule (A Marked Men Novel), I’ve been anxious to explore the possibility of a relationship between these two memorable characters and Jet doesn’t disappoint. There’s something unabashedly erotic about both Jet and Ayden, so much so that they seem to emit waves of sex appeal – though the same could be said for most of Crownover’s characters. Jet’s tattooed bad boy rocker persona and Ayden’s Southern spitfire charm make for an irresistible combination. I love the author’s use of dual narratives, which allowed me to become immersed in their individual stories, delving deeper into the secrets of their past that are inhibiting their burgeoning relationship. 

 Jet picks up a year after Rule, when Jet and Ayden have firmly relegated each other to the friend zone. Despite their platonic relationship status, their mutual attraction isn’t easily discarded, especially when they live in such close quarters, and are constantly confronted with the temptation of their intense chemistry. Their looks are laden with desire and their looks are laced with innuendo. It’s as if their lust has been placed on the backburner, waiting for the ideal moment to implode. Knowing how they feel about each other is a special kind of torture, teasing the promise of what could be if they both could manage to get over their preconceived notions of one another. Ayden is far from the innocent girl Jets views in his conscience and Jet has a hidden depth behind his rock star façade. 

The best part of Crownover’s books is the eclectic group of men and women that Jet and Ayden call friends. Rough appearances aside, they are all fiercely loyal and supportive of their core group of friends. With families as screwed up as Jet’s and Ayden’s, their friends act as surrogate family members, doling out sound advice and knocking sense into them when necessary. There are a number of instances where I wanted to yell at Jet and Ayden in frustration, and I was glad that they were surrounded by voices of reason to help steer them towards the right path. Despite my occasional desire to smack Jet and Ayden upside the head for their stubbornness, I genuinely liked their characters and rooted for their happy ending.  

Rating: 5 Stars
