Book Blurb:

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.
Recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, language and drinking


I had seen this book under my recommendations on both Goodreads and Amazon.  I bought it while it was on sale for $0.99 and I'm so glad I purchased it.  

I loved this book. The character development was amazing. I would have never thought I could fall for a tattooed, pierced and purple mowhawked hero.... but I did!

I loved the references to a town that I know well (Denver). I enjoyed the interaction between Shaw and Rule so much that I will read this book over and over again. It's a keeper!

Just when you think that Rule is going to stay the rebelious and brooding young adult, he grows into a man worthy of Shaw's love and attention (just like she'd always known to be true) I liked the twists and turns of the story as well because they kept me interested in what was going to happen next and I couldn't put the book down. I finished it in 3 days only because "life" kept getting in the way!  Otherwise it would have been finished in one day.

Thank you Jay Crownover for a fantastic read and I can't wait for the next book with Jet.
