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.
A lot of women like bad boys, but Rule Archer is the ultimate. He will have one night stands with any woman and then toss them in the morning. Repeat. He’s got tattoos and piercings to last a lifetime, and he’s not yet done inking his whole body. When his twin died, his relationship with his parents became strained. But Shaw Landon, his twin’s close friend, refuses to stop taking him home every weekend to his parents for dinner.
The story revolved around Rule and Shaw’s push and pull. Should I, shouldn’t I? Is this right, am I wrong? The usual dilemma of adults trying to decipher what is going on with this man-woman non-relationship relationship.
What I liked about this book is the fact that it shows that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. The tattooed man actually has a heart, and the preppy princess has a wild side. It just means that we should take time to get to know another person before we dismiss them. There may be walls that you need to break in order to do that, and sometimes, it is worth it.
