Genre: New Adult
Publication Date: January 7, 2013
Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect.
Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon.
Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .

Five amazingly burning stars!!!!
Rome! Rome! Rome!
All hail Rome!
Can I just say that Rome is soooo hot – there aren’t enough words to describe just how hot he is!
Rome is a man who is tortured by the demons of his past – both in the battlefield and the news he’s learned of his brother. He’s not in a good place to say the least. His brother Rule is having a great life with his deceased brother’s best friend and Rome is not convinced that Rule has changed or that he will be actually happy with Shaw. Life hasn’t been kind to Rome and he takes out his aggression to his closest friends and family.
Enter Cora – aka Tink – a spitfire who can duke it out with Rome and his grumpiness. Whew!!! The pages were burning with sexual tension and rich dialogues that as a reader you go, “Egads, what just happened?”
Jay Crownover is a master storyteller. Her stories are rich with content, character, and their backstories are just as amazing. The Marked Men gang’s back in full force and I don’t want to give away so much but I love reading about all of them – Rule, Shaw, Jet, Ayden, Nash, even Asa…The cover is smoking! I can really picture the guy on the cover as Rome and boy is he good-looking!!
Ms. Crownover’s hit the ballpark and then some in this latest Marked Men installment and I cannot even begin to say how much I’m anticipating Nash’s story next!
I’m supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I’m an natural redhead even though I haven’t seen my real hair color in years, I’m a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I’ve been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that.
I love to write, love to read and all I’m interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.
