Sometimes the wrong choice can be just right . . .

Fun and fearless, Cora Lewis knows how to keep her tattooed "bad boy" friends at the Marked in line. But beneath all that flash and sass is a broken heart. Cora won't let herself get burned again. She's waiting to fall in love with the perfect man—a baggage-free, drama-free guy ready for commitment. Then she meets Rome Archer.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He's stubborn, rigid, and bossy. And he's returned from his final tour of duty more than a little broken. Rome's used to filling many roles: big brother, doting son, supersoldier—but none of those fit anymore. Now he's just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the dark demons of war and loss at bay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot and Swoonworthy! This was my first Jay Crownover book and I have to say it was an awesome read and Jay is a brilliant writer. Rome and Cora are complex characters who are perfect for each other. I wish I read them in order but it will be okay since now I will read them all. Rome felt like a big brother who has gone through a lot and is a good son for his parents in his parents view.  Rome is an American Soldier who went off to the army and comes back changed from his last tour. He is broken from what he has seen and knows that if he goes home it would not be easy. He comes home and him and Rule start to form a bond that he is starting to feel happy about. But he does feel like he is missing a part of himself and in his life.  Then he meets Cora Lewis who will change his life because she is a force of nature who can relate to Rome is more ways than I can count. She will show Rome what life is and Cora knows how to keep men in line because she also is protecting herself from being hurt again. Cora meets Rome her life, both of their lives are turned upside down but together the two of them will guide each  other out of the dangerous water.  While bother are broken can they both open themselves to love and let go of their past? Once you read this book you will not get enough since it was addicting and the characters feel real. Jay's writing was beautiful and I cannot wait to read more of your books. These alpha men are starting to get to me. The romance is intense and Rome is definitely Swoonworthy!
