Book Review: Rule (Marked men #1) By Jay Crownover

Name: Rule
Author: Jay Crownover
Publishers: Harper Collins UK
UK Release date: October 24th
Summary: 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

Review: A lot of people are into new adult books lately and it's become this huge thing! And if you are a fan of the genre then this book should be at the top of your list! Let me tell you why!
From the beginning of opening this book the sexual tension just oozed out of the pages between the two characters Shaw and Rule.  It was so addicting that I read it in one sitting and I haven't done that in awhile. The plot was defiantly original. I find in a lot of new adult books it repeats quite often, but this book was a breath of fresh air in the genre.

I loved the whole tattoo/piercing  themed content. Again this related to my comment about originality. I've never come across a NA with this. Every page and paragraph I just wanted to get a tattoo and a piercing in a very unconventional place! The way Jay described tattoos it was beautiful! I could close my eyes and picture all of them in detail from her words.
The scenes between Shaw and Rule were so intoxicating. I couldn't wait for their scenes each page I turned. I found their relationship so real and enjoyable it was so refreshing to read. 
I think Jay is a real talent and I can see why she has had so much hype about this book. I cant believe I am only hearing and reading it now but I am so glad. Her novel is so addicting and such a page turner I didn't want it to end. I cannot wait for the next marked books. I have a feeling this series is going to be so huge in the UK.
 If you love a very hot NA with tattoos, piercings, Mohawk's, and an epic couple.. Then get this book! You won't regret it!
