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 . . .

My Review:Holy smokes just when I was thinking the Marked Men Series couldn’t possibly get any better Rome comes out and blows me away!
So I love Rule. He’s totally the guy I would see on the street and have drool dribbling down my face. Rome on the other hand is the guy I would take home to my momma. He’s the perfect guy. Patient, trustworthy, takes accountability, protective I could honestly go on and on about how awesome and breathtaking the service man is.
Rome comes home from his final tour in the service and now everything he used to know has changed. Before he left a secret about his brother was revealed and now he can’t get over that to talk to his parents. All he’s ever wanted to do was protect his family, but now they don’t need him. Rule has Shaw, Remy’s gone, and he doesn’t know how to interact with his parents. Not knowing how to deal he starts making bad decision that lead him right into Cora.
I love Cora! I was honestly worried that she was going to unsure and dogging Rome because she wasn’t sure she liked him. Instead I got the Cora from the rest of the books. Strong, hard headed, and even minded. I really enjoyed her strength. Cora definitely proves she loves everyone around her and would protect them all with her life, but she also had a vulnerability she didn’t have in the other books.
Rome the book was definitely a favorite of mine. Rome (the person) was such a great and realistic character. I fell in love with him and Cora and this entire story just as easily as I did the first two books. I enjoyed how the story always had twists and I never really knew what was coming. There are so many surprises in this book and at the end the amazing hint of what’s to come in the upcoming books I honest can’t wait. Jay Crownover is definitely an amazing author and a new favorite.
If you haven’t read this series yet well you shouldn’t be reading this review, but if you are you need to read this amazing series asap. Rule, Jet, and Rome are great books with swoon worthy guys and relatable female characters. Amazing, flawless, awesomesauce, I don’t know I love this series. All the characters are so relatable and real it was impossible for me NOT to fall in love.
Rome is perfect and I can’t wait for what Jay Crownover has in store for the rest of the series.
"Because I'm freaked out that whatever I say might be the wrong thing. And right now, being with you is the one thing that feels solid and real...You're so full of color, so vibrant you never get lost in all the gray in my head. I don't want to lose that."

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.
