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?

I knew this was going to be a good read I had no doubts considering I loved the first book about Rule. I was curious about Jet in the last book. I don't know, I guess you could say he spoke to me... The Author made him his own and he was completely different then Rule, I am certainly a Jet fan.

I love Ayden and her country roots. I love her take no crap, strong and a good head on her shoulders attitude and the way she is perceived by others. However, we all hide things we don't want others to see and sometimes perceptions are just that, perceptions. Ayden has a past she doesn't want others to see. She's afraid that those she cares most about most won't be able to except her and think differently of her. I know we've all felt that way at some point and time. We work so hard at trying to be different that by doing that we begin to lose a little of ourselves while trying to keep up the masquerade. Essentially that's what that is. We can all learn to change and be different people but there has to be a balance. And there are things and mistakes we would all like to forget about. But there can always be an even medium. We can still be who we are from our past and mix them together with who we are and want to be today.

Jet has things he worries about as well and is a lot more then meets the eye. His rock god status stays on stage and he is still the guy that worries about his mother and his future. He still has a thing for Ayden even though they are roommates. All these girls he lets in like a revolving door he realizes will never be her. Deciding to take things easy, they start out as only sex buddies, hoping this will be enough. Obviously this isn't how it stays and feelings emerge that are beyond what they both expected or are willing to admit.

The Author brings up the importance of family and sometimes it doesn't mean blood relation. With both characters having things that they need to come to terms with with their past and their growing feelings that they have been so unwilling to accept. It's a series with relatable characters that we can all identify with on some level.

To the Author, thank you for writing a series that is so so hot but written so tastefully that makes me want to find me a tattooed, pierced and funky haired man of my own. I love the female leads in this series that are 'normal' dressed girls but see past a look with no judgment. It's a great series that I look forward to. I am seriously looking forward to the next!!

Jay Crownover is the bestselling author of Rule. Like the characters in her Marked Men series, she is a big fan of tattoos. She loves music and wishes she could be a rock star, but since she has no aptitude for singing or instrument playing, she'll settle for writing stories with interesting characters and that make the reader feel something. She lives in Colorado with her three dogs.

Note:  UK and Australia:  Jet’s release date has been moved to June 20th.
