Title: Rule
Author: Jay Crownover
Series: Rule (Book One)


 I had loved Rule Archer since the first moment I ever laid eyes on him. He was everything I shouldn't want and the only person I went out of my way to not try and please. He only saw me as a brat, and an entitled, stuck up princess but worse than that all he saw when he looked at me was his deceased twins girl. It broke my heart because as much as I had loved Remy Archer there was never anything romantic between us and no matter how hard I tried to convince myself that loving Rule was a terrible idea, my poor heart just wouldn't listen. We tolerated each other, barely and had forged an uneasy alliance until one night I had too much to drink and changed the way we were forever. Suddenly life long secrets were no longer hidden and the one thing I always wanted for myself seemed obtainable as long as I was willing to go through hell to hold onto it.

Shaw Landon was a class act and I had no idea what to do with her. She was tied to my family, tied to the person that was my other half so I tolerated her and her haughty attitude when I didn't have any other choice. What I didn't know was that a short skirt and too many cocktails on her birthday was going to change my outlook on her for the rest of my life. Some people thought I hid behind all my tattoos and piercings, that I tried to distance myself from my dead twin, Shaw saw through it all and wasn't scared of what was underneath. We weren't supposed to be together, weren't supposed to be anything up uncomfortable acquaintances but that all changed in the blink of an eye. Now I had to figure out just how a girl like her and a guy like me were supposed to be in love without destroying each other. Add in her custom made ex and two disapproving sets of parents and the whole situation sounded like it was more trouble then it was worth.

Recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, language and drinking.


I don't know where to start reviewing this book.
I really liked it and the story was lovely and kind of original. It made me smile, made me hot, made me angry, made me tense, made me sad, made me happy, and made me almost cry. It was intense and I like when a book gets me all emotional.
I loved most of the characters, but especially Shaw, Rule, Ayden, Rome, Nash and Cora.
Gabe is a creep and totally crazy. I wanted to rip his balls off and feed them to my dog. (Okay, that's just gross. Ewww!)
Shaw is a kickass girl and very sweet, lovely, kind, tough and an awesome girl.
Ayden is an awesome friend and kind and sweet as well and it's so clear she loves Shaw very much.
Nash is very nice and kind of fun and loves Rule as much as Ayden loves Shaw.
Cora is very nice and becomes a very good friend. I liked her. She has a bit of craziness that I like in a girl.
Rome has been one of my favorites characters until that surprising dinner just before he leaves. I didn't like how he treated Shaw after her revelation about Remy. Well, I also didn't like how Rule treated her then. I wanted to kick their asses and especially I wanted to punch Rule in his gut for how much he hurt Shaw that night. And the weeks after that.
Don't get me wrong, I liked Rule, loved him actually. Especially when he was all sweet, possessive and passionate. But his behaviour when he didn't even try and work on something that was revealing to be harder than he thought... well, that bothered me to no end. Not that Shaw didn't have her faults. But Rule was the more diffucult and had to learn and put his pride at one side if he wanted their relationship to really work.
It was frustrating to see them go through all that struggle, their issues and problems and difficulties and I was tense and ready to see the worst happen to them.
But in the end everything went how it was supposed to go.

***4 stars***
