Opposites in every way . . . except the one that matters 

Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight--A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn’t want--and the only person she’s never tried to please. She isn’t afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won’t listen.

To a rebel like Rule Archer, Shaw Landon is a stuck-up, perfect princess-and his dead twin brother’s girl. She lives by other people’s rules; he makes his own. He doesn’t have time for a good girl like Shaw-even if she’s the only one who can see the person he truly is.

But a short skirt, too many birthday cocktails, and spilled secrets lead to a night neither can forget. Now, Shaw and Rule have to figure out how a girl like her and a guy like him are supposed to be together without destroying their love . . . or each other. 

My Review: AMAZING!  Yup, just found another author who I love and must own all books written. 

Rule is amazing. He's smarter than you think. Crazy sexy. Covered in Ink, tons of piercings and just overall a great character. No one really gives him the credit he deserves though. He's a bit of a player. Goes out, gets drunk and brings a girl home and then sends her of the next morning. He has a job as a tattoo artist. And he's been having a tough time since he lost his twin and his other brother is out serving and his mum hates him.

Rule has is tough, but omg I was so happy to see him find love. Change for the good, be happy, and it was an amazing turn around. All because he finally trusted Shaw and stood his ground with his parents.

As for Shaw, she was amazing to read about. Shes got the looks and the brains. When shes not with her friend, or working, shes studying to be a doctor. She's the full package. She's also been in love with Rule since she was a kid. But right now she and Rule have a schedule, she gets him every Sunday, drives the long trip to his parents house for brunch. It always leads to arguing and a long drive back. That's tough enough for Shaw to deal with, but now she's going to have a crazy stalker. Her ex doesn't understand the part of she doesn't want him ever. 

As things progress, the emotions get stronger and then it finally happened. Shaw and Rule finally realized their feelings, and finally got together. It wasn't easy, there were a lot of rocky moments, but they finally found a way to work together and they can finally be happy.

I loved this book and can tell that this author is going to be another favorite!
