[Blog Tour - ARC Review & Giveaway] Rome ~ Jay Crownover

Rome (Marked Men #3)
Genre:  New Adult
Publication Date:  January 7, 2014

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 . . .

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.

Jasmine's Review

 I completely just adore this book. I FREAKING LOVE it!! I haven't read the first two books yet, but I'm totally going to.

And luckily I also won an ARC paperback of this book so double yay!

Cora, I just love her personality. There's just sooo much sass and kick-assness (Is there such a word??) in that tiny body of hers. She could stand up to pretty much anybody. And when she poured that beer over Rome's head, THAT totally sold this book to me.

But underneath all that badass personality, she is mending a broken heart. From her asshole of an ex that cheated on her. And that's why she's looking for Mr. Perfect (don't we all?).

Rome is far from Mr. Perfect. He's a broken man. The war has left him with him with wounds that will last for eternity. But he is one REALLY REALLY hot man.

The same night that Cora poured the beer over his head he found the Bar and met Brite. I love that old man even if he is scary at times. He took good care of Rome. Anyway, Rome started working there to pay off his debts after destroying the bar when he got into a fight with a biker gang. 

The morning after Rome stayed over at Cora (after one drunk night and they just slept) and they were about to have sex, Cora was like, "That's never going to fit." THAT sold the book to me AGAIN. So I totally LOOOVE this book and Rome's name. Seriously, Rome Archer is one hot name.

One other thing I like about Cora and Rome was that it didn't take them FOREVER to get together. Because usually when characters only get together at the last chapter, it pisses me off.  Well, what more can I say? (Probably a lot of more useful information.. But I suck at those.) All you have to know is that I LOVE THIS BOOK!! 

5 Dog Tags
(I'm too lazy too put a lot of Dog Tags so I just added a hot guy)
Hot guy counts for 4 + the dog tag = 5
