[Review] Rule - Jay Crownover

Released: December 30th, 2012

Opposites in every way . . . except the one that matters

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.

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

God, this book was . . . I don't know how to describe it. I read it a while ago so I kind of forgot how the characters were but I remember that it was kind of a disappointment. I mean, the plot was terrific, the idea for the story was really amazing. But then, I guess, I was expecting too much for it to blow me away that, well, it didn't. This book gave me a mixed feelings kind of thing.

First, there's Shaw Landon. She's pretty tough I remember, and kind of annoying at times. But she was always there for Rule. She would always be there to support him even when he's being a shit-head. I liked how accepting she was towards him but she also understood that probably everyone was attracted to him.
"I think it's genetically impossible not to be kind of in love with him when you come equipped with a vagina. It's just something about all that angsty, moody swagger he has that makes you want to cuddle him up and make him feel better."
Next comes Rule Archer who is just a walking one-night stand. He's hot, tattooed, rebellious. The whole bad boy package. But, underneath, all that rock-hard exterior is the fragile man underneath. The man who gets scrutinized a lot. The man who's afraid of getting his heart broken. He is terrified that he won't be able to do the right thing.
"I feel like I'm letting you down, letting everyone down and for once it's bothering the hell out of me. I just don't know how to work around what's going on up here."
But he doesn't know how to handle a relationship since he's never been in one and this makes it tough for him to steer his connection with Shaw.
"We're going to do this and I promise I'll take care of you as best as I can. You're going to have to be patient with me because I'm flying blind but this is the kind of thing I should be doing for you, plus I don't want you anywhere near that guy." 
Minor Faults:
  • Book was too fast-paced
  • There was connection but something was off about it
  • Shaw was a teensy bit too accepting of his attitude.


3 APPLES!!!!!
