Review- Rule by Jay Crownover

Goodreads Summary:

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.


Ah, ha! Just when I thought that Rule as a book was the most predictable book ever and the super long chapters were getting on my nerves, and all the angst, anger and drama were getting a bit irritating, I was greeted by a super sweet ending. 

Rule is the story of Shaw who has been in love with her best friend Remy's twin brother Rule since she first laid eyes on him. She has her own family problems and the Archer family accept her as one of thier own. Rule, however, wants to be independent, live his own life and have nothing to do with what others think about him. When Shaw and Rule spend Shaw's birthday night at Rule's place, everything between the two changes and they then begin to slowly fall in love. 

In so many ways, Rule reminded me of so many book bad boys I've previously read and loved. He was a little attitudinal to me, but overall I enjoyed seeing him change and grow as and how times called for it. Shaw was a good enough girl but some of her actions peeved me. Nonetheless, as a couple, Shaw and Rule were super hot and super sweet. I even liked getting to know both their families, as weird as they were, and also their friends. Which is why I'm quite excited to read Jet, the next book in author Jay Crownover's Marked Men series

New Adult books these days are just getting so easy to figure out. I can almost tell you the whole story after just reading one chapter from each of the protagonist's point of view. It went the same way with Rule and I tend to quite revel in the fact that I'm now so well versed with NA story lines. 

Rule was a sweet and hot read that I and trouble getting into but I enjoyed by the time I finished it.
