Blog Tour, Review, & Giveaway: Rome by Jay Crownover

Title: Rome (Marked Men #3) Author: Jay Crownover Genre: New Adult Publication Date: January 7, 2014 Publisher: William Morrow an imprint of HarperCollins Publishing Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.
Cora Lewis is a whole lot of fun, and she knows how to keep her tattooed bad boy friends in line. But all that flash and sass hide the fact that she’s never gotten over the way her first love broke her heart. Now she has a plan to make sure that never happens again: She’s only going to fall in love with someone perfect.
Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He’s stubborn and rigid, he’s bossy and has come back from his final tour of duty fundamentally broken. Rome’s used to filling a role: big brother, doting son, super soldier; and now none of these fit anymore. Now he’s just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes the only color on his bleak horizon.
Perfect isn’t in the cards for these two, but imperfect might just last forever . . .

My Review:

**Jay Crownover, U Rock!**

I fell in love with Rule Archer in Marked Men #1 so when I had the opportunity to participate in a blog tour and an early review for Marked Men #3, I jumped at the chance! I have no regrets! Rome is, by far, my fav of the Marked Men! He's the epitome of sexy & tortured - seriously, what's not to love! 

"I was going to kiss that sassy mouth until neither of us could breathe, until my head stopped hurting, until I forgot what had put me in a such a vulnerable, sorry state in the first place"

The momentum was immediate and never wavered in its intensity. And Rome is a little more intense and deeper than the other Marked Men. Jay did an amazing job making the story so much more than a typical "new adult" romance.  She takes it up a notch and by incorporating real-world, adult issues with a wonderful angsty feeling that makes you desperate for answers *spoiler free* and for the next book.

I just have to say...OMG holy crudmuffins chapter 16 - 18!! I mean… OHHH MYYY GODDD!!!!!

About the Author
I’m supposed to share interesting details about myself so that my readers get to know me so here we go in no particular order: I’m an natural redhead even though I haven’t seen my real hair color in years, I’m a big fan of tattoos and have a half sleeve on either arm and various other pieces all over the place, I’ve been in the bar industry since I was in college and it has always offered interesting insight into how men and women interact with each other, I have 3 dogs that are all crazy, I live in Colorado and love the snow, I love music and in all reality wish I could be a rock star not a writer or a bartender but I have zero talent so there is that. I love to write, love to read and all I’m interested in is a good story with interesting characters that make the reader feel something.
