Review: Rule by Jay Crownover

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 twin's 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 but 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.

Rule Archer is hot, tattooed, pierced, has crazy out of control hair and treats women as scores. Shaw Landon is the daughter of a wealthy family, always dressed to impress and living the life she is “suppose” to be living. At first glance you think this will be the classic case of opposites attract but oh no it is so much more than it appears.  One of my favorite Jay Crownover quotes: 

"Opposites don't just attract they freaking catch fire and burn the entire city down."

In this story, Crownover gives us the good, the bad and the ugly right up front. She didn’t just stop there the story twist and turns in surprising ways and defiantly leaves you always wanting more.

Shaw has been a part of the Archer family since she was 14 and in love with Rule since the day she met him. However, Rule only ever saw Shaw as Remy’s girl. Remy was Rule’s clean cut twin brother that was tragically killed a couple of years ago whereas leaving a whole in the Archer family and Rule feeling he was missing his other half.

Then one night it all changes and everyone’s world is turned upside down.  I loved the heat, the edginess and most of all I loved the way Shaw could see Rule and I mean really could see him for all his glory.

Yes the orginal version had it problems with editing but as a debut novel I was willing to overlook them because the story was so amazing.  Crownover’s alternating points of view were spot on.  I think Jay Crownover is a talented author and can’t wait to read Jet and any other book she pens. 

Rule is a solid 4.5 star read!
