Rome by Jay Crownover

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Rome is Rule’s brother. We were introduced to Rule in the first of this series of Marked Men books. Rome has returned from active service in Afghanistan and is deeply disturbed by the experience of war. This book highlights the problems of soldiers returning to civilian life. He meets Brite who turns out to be his saviour. We get appearances of the other characters from the two earlier books and many ends are tied. It’s a slower book than its predecessors, not as dark as Jet but still very sexy.

If you like Jay Crownover you might also like to read books by Penelope Ward, Rachel Van Dyken and J Lynn.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Rome by Jay Crownover

The third book in the MARKED MEN series. Somewhere between the perfect fairytale and a broken heart lies a happy ending...Loud and colourful, Cora Lewis is used to keeping her rowdy colleagues at the tattoo shop in line, but all her fiery bluster hides a heart that's been mistreated too many times. After her supposed happy-ever-after went out of the window, she's become fixated on nothing less than 'perfect'. But does such a guy exist? Rome Archer is as far from perfect as can be. Rigid and uncompromising, he's returned from his final tour of duty a broken man, and nightmares of war plague his every moment. Faced with family rifts and no idea what to do with his time, he's used to seeing the world in black and white, good and bad - and right now, he's lost in the dark. On the surface, neither is what the other person wants - but in the search for perfect, imperfection might just be what they need...


Praise for Jay Crownover: 'A wildly addicting read. You'll love Rule, the man and the book!
Cora Carmack, New York Times bestselling author of Losing It
