With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl’s rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn’t want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet’s dark, haunted eyes. She’s afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire.

Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships.

Will the blaze burn into an enduring love. . . or will it consume their dreams and turn them to ashes?

Rule(Marked Men #1): Goodreads/Amazon/B&N/Kim's 5 star review
Rome(Marked Men #3): Goodreads...expected January 2014

I have to start out by saying I absolutely loved book one, Rule and have been highly anticipating Jet and Aydens' story.

"Two different worlds, Ayd, two different worlds."

Ayden is a control freak and a good girl now, but doing it to escape her checkered wild past. No one in her group of friends at school really knows where she came from and what she has put behind her. She wants a solid future and never wants to be out of control again. She is scared and secretive, but also caring and smart. She doesn't want to want Jet. But even when seemingly rejected by him, she still wants him.

Ayden Cross was a puzzle that , every time I thought I was close to solving, proved to have five extra pieces and no corners. For a long time, I thought she was a Southern Belle complete with mile-long legs in cowboy boots, but then she would turn around and do something that knocked me on my a**.  I had the feeling I didn't know the real Ayden at all. I would gladly spend the time it took to unravel it all, to under her in every way I could. 

Jet is enough to make Ayden lose control. On the surface he looks like a pierced, tattooed rock-star, bad-boy with a sketchy future and limited goals. But he really has multiple layers and talents. He is a singer, songwriter, runs a studio, helps new bands, and takes care of his family and friends. He is sweet, protective, wise, but broken. His family and past keep him from moving forward. He wants Shaw, but knows that it is a precarious situation. When he rejected her before  alcohol was involved and she was Shaw's room mate. Now she is  room mates with him and Cora. And that makes it even more complicated.

Jet Keller was all kinds of temptation wrapped up in too-tight pants and with too many personal demons hidden in those dark, golden-rimmed eyes. He was every girl's rock-and-roll fantasy, with an edge that made him just sharp enough to be hard to handle. And boy, oh boy, did I want to handle him in every way possible. 

But from the beginning, their chemistry was apparent. And it did not wane  between their unfulfilled night and present time where they have been living together as friends. They seem to have opposite tastes and conflicting paths for their futures. They hid their feelings as long as they could but they were bound to combust. 

"This is going to change everything."

"Sometimes things need to change, because there just isn't any way for them to stay the same."

Can two people that seem so wrong, be just right? 
Just when it might be possible for them to find something real, will danger and the past rip them apart?

We just made so much sense together even if we made no sense at all. 

But there are walls, inner demons, bad people, and circumstances conspiring against them.  I loved Rule and Shaw from the first book. They were so intense, volatile, and downright snarky. They fought hard and loved harder. Jet and Ayden are more low key than them, but still have the chemistry, passion, and need. I loved Jet. He was all kinds of hot sweet rocker with a good heart. He was devoted and really tried to do the right thing for everyone and make Ayden happy. He was not scared of commitment even if he was unsure of where his future was going to lead. Ayden drove me crazy for much of the book. I really wanted to smack her and call her stupid and chicken. She lived in Denial Land, liked to run, and kept her issues locked away and would not let anyone in to help. But I grew more attached to them as a couple as the book went on and I could feel their joy, hurt, and pain. There was lots of angst, drama, and suspense, but some really sweet swoony moments too. I am really looking forward to Rome. Jay already did a good job setting up the story with Rome. He is already interesting and I love big mouthed Cora. They will be a match made in Hell! I really like this whole group of friends/pseudo family in this book. The Marked Men, the band, and the girls really care for each other and are not afraid to kick each other's asses if they need to. 

Thanks to Jay Crownover for allowing me to read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
