Fun and fearless, Cora Lewis knows how to keep her tattooed "bad boy" friends at the Marked in line. But beneath all that flash and sass is a broken heart. Cora won't let herself get burned again. She's waiting to fall in love with the perfect man—a baggage-free, drama-free guy ready for commitment. Then she meets Rome Archer.
Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He's stubborn, rigid, and bossy. And he's returned from his final tour of duty more than a little broken. Rome's used to filling many roles: big brother, doting son, supersoldier—but none of those fit anymore. Now he's just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the dark demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer through it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes a blinding flash of color in a sea of gray.Perfect may not be in the cards, but perfectly imperfect could just last forever .
ROME is the 3rd book in the Marked Man series by Jay and if you have not read the first two in the series, RULE and JET, then stop what you are doing right now, go one-click them and read them. I promise, you will not be disappointed.
Rome is Rule’s older brother who has just gotten home from the war zone. Rome is broken and perfect and you will fall in love with him. Jay Crownover does that to you. Be PREPARED!!! Every character she writes is almost better than the last. I never know who I love the most cause her boys leave me in a total mess. I swear, I would die standing in the middle of her group of boys.
With that said, let me talk about Cora. I want her as my best friend. Cora is strong, tells it how it is and just downright adorable. I connect with her. In fact, I adore her. Again, this is Jay’s amazing writing skills. The girls’ in her books are my girlfriends. Sometimes, I want to just slap them for being so silly and in the next moment, I just want to love them through whatever it is. Cora, for me, is as real as they get. I relate to her the most. She is busy taking care of everyone around her and I love her for it.
Being the 3rd book in the series and all the characters are friends or connected, I would not say ROME is a complete stand alone but it is his and Cora’s story. I have read them all in sequence and was already, to some degree, invested in Cora and Rome’s story plus each of the couples relationships continue on in each book. They are a family. ROME is a must must must read. So are RULE and JET.
TEXAS HUGS and HAPPY READING!!!
