    One thought on “Rome”

    1. You can read my full review at Sinfully Sexy and enter to win some great prizes.5 "HUGE-ASS" StarsRome by Jay Crownover is the third book in her Marked Men series. I absolutely loved and adored the first book in this series, Rule. I liked Jet, the second installment in this series, well enough but not as much as book one. So to state that I had high expectations going into this book would be quite the understatement. I have come to expect amazing storytelling that is both captivating and compell [...]

    2. A few pages in and I already wanna climb Rome like a tree. There.I said it.This book gave me every one of the feels. Jay is brilliant. Rome is delicious. I adored him and Cora together. Sigh

    3. 4-4.5 Stars!!!Jay Crownover’s third installment of the Marked Men series was about Rule’s older brother, Rome (aka Captain no-fun) and his friend Cora (aka Tink or Half-pint). Rome had all the steam, fun loving moments and captivating characters that drew me in with Rule. Rome Archer is back from his final tour with the Army. He is home and he’s not been himself since he’s been back. He has issues with his family, and his time spent at war left it's mark. He’s changed. And lets be hone [...]

    4. THREE ARCHER STARS.Ever since starting the marked men series, I have been waiting impatiently to get my hands on the eldest Archer brother story. something about Rome made me girly giddy to hear his story and so it goes without saying that this was a highly anticipated book for me. Overall for the most part I enjoyed this story and the moody, broody, military hunk, but sadly there were not enough five star moments to turn this book into a, 'I loved this book' from a, 'I liked it book'. Here are [...]

    5. Ah, I loved this. So not what I was expecting, but in a good--no, great way. I think Rome might be my favorite out of all the guys so far.

    6. Rome and Cora are my favorite so far. I love how the fiery pixie sees beyond the rough exterior to the man inside. Rome is so honest and straightforward that even when he messes up, you want to cuddle and protect him. Cora has had her heart broken and is afraid to love. Rome is a broken man with PSTD trying to find his place in the world beyond the military. Their story starts off with sass, attitude, and spilt beer but ends with sweet happiness for these two. They are absolutely awesome togethe [...]

    7. ***5 Imperfect Perfect stars from me***Yep, it's officially I'M AN ADDICT!!!I just can not stop reading about these boys and girlsEverytime that i finished one book from this series, i'm saying to myself "Now, you have to take a break and you will continue after" but everytime i failI think that it's Jay's fault. She is writing so good and every story is so great and different from the rest of them. I don't have to mention that in every epilogue she is driving me crazy and made me desperate to g [...]

    8. Rome by Jay Crownover is the story of Rule's (Rule is from the first book of the Marked Men) older brother. Rome is home for good but is finding it difficult adjusting to being back from war. He feels guilt at being unable to keep all his men safe but also has not come to terms with the fact that his younger brother, who passed, kept his sexuality a secret from him. He feels like he's failed those around him. Cora, is the feisty body modification artist at the shop. She has a no holds barred per [...]

    9. 4,5 Stars. This third book bring us the Archer brother number two (or number one, since he’s the oldest), Rome, who recently got out of army where he saw some things so bad that still haunts him. It also bring us Cora, the sweet pixie-chick and best-friend of basically them all. If you read the previous books you know that although Rome is a great guy, is going through some changes and some problems in this life that make him behave, well, like an asshole. But while everyone is letting it go [...]

    10. Title: Rome Series: Marked Man #3Release Date:January 7th, 2014Rating: 4.5 starsCliffhanger: No HEA:(view spoiler)[ Yes(hide spoiler)]Jay Crownover’s done it once again! She totally mesmerized me by her amazing storytelling – Rome is poignant, compelling, knocking your socks off romance, that made me swoon, laugh and simply just have fun.I utterly love Crownover for pulling something like that! It’s like she always has a different trick up her sleeve. Her easy, cute and incredibly romantic [...]

    11. 4 stars!Jay Crownover at her best!I've read the previous three books in this series. And despite my initial issues with the editing (especially in Rule), I still recognized Ms. Crownover's masterful storytelling. In Rome, she has proven once again that she can create flawed yet relatable characters. Couples that make you want to root for. Rome and Cora are no exception. We met Rome during Rule's book and he's shown to be the good son, the all-American elder brother who keeps everyone in line. We [...]

    12. ROME OOO ROME He was tall, way taller than the other guys, broad and strong and strapped muscles with short, dark hair cropped to his headHe was definitely effing hot and am also such a sucker for those military boys <3As I was hoping to enjoy Rome more, but I couldn't, Cora kinda was annoyed me especially she went made an announcement!! (view spoiler)[ Oops, I am pregnant, I forgot to take pills!!!!(hide spoiler)]Hence, everything after that, I was skimming through.I just felt their love was [...]

    14. I loved Rome! I thought Rule was my favorite in this series, but Rome is right up there with Rule. Cora and Rome are very much opposites on the outside, but matched perfectly in their beautiful hearts and souls! I adored this couple!Cora is the spunky little friend with a sassy mouth, who works at the tattoo shop with Rule and his boys. She’s a fiercely protective and loyal friend, but she’s been burned in the romance department making her weary of future connections. Cora is holding out for [...]

    15. FULL REVIEWBuddy-Read with the amazing Future-Gurl June 20th!This is a stunning video and song, about PTSD and TBI that I recently discovered which brings goose bumps to my skin. 4 Fighting-for-your-life StarsWhen I was younger I always figured that if I ever settled down with a man it would be with a firefighter or a soldier. Not because I had a uniform fetish or anything like that but because I have a very soft spot for both of these professions, professions which require a level of sacrifice [...]

    16. 3.5In general I think Jay Crownover does a great job telling her story. I enjoy her writing overall and the characters are relatable and funny. I love the nicknames she gives people such as Captain No-Fun and Admiral Ass Hat. I did not read Jet due to my friend's opinions regarding the book's heroine. I decided to go ahead and give Rome a try though.With that being said, I got a tad bit annoyed while reading. This book seemed pretty predictable and the actual storyline started getting on my nerv [...]

    18. 4.5 Coming to Terms, Confronting and Accepting, Being the Better for It Stars * * * * ½Spoiler FreeTerrific Buddy Read with my pal, MishyjoWe, as a nation, have experienced the ramification of our sons and daughters, family members and friends fighting for our country many times. There have been many books, movies and personal stories told. Each combat experience is unique to the conflict, region fought and environment but all have the singular purpose of defending those back home and wanting t [...]

    19. Servicemen have a very special place in my heart. I have a very close friend who is in the Army and several of my family members are in or have been in the Air Force. So I had pretty high expectations going into this, and with my not so stellar track record with Ms. Crownover, I was a little worried.But I didn't need to be. This was wonderful. Rome is a stellar leading man. Bruised and battered, he's been broken by the things he has seen and done in his time at the front lines of battle. He's tr [...]

    20. 3.5--Good But Not Great--Stars!!I liked Rome, I didbut I just didn't love it. It wasn't WOWING. It wasn't anything new. It was predictable. It was a little cheesy. Things I liked about Rome:(1) Cora wasn't annoying.or at least not as annoying as another certain someoneyone remember Ayden?!?!(2) It didn't take the whole book for Rome and Cora to get together!(3) There wasn't a lot of dumb drama--cheating, etc. (4) The sex was pretty hot.Things I didn't like about Rome:(1) It had one of my book pe [...]

    21. ***3.25 Stars***First and foremost, my apologies for what is going to be a rambling review. Unfortunately this one didn't completely work for me. I liked it, but didn't love it and found myself repeatedly annoyed by Cora and her unrealistic expectations. Having to listen to her ramble on and on about finding Mr. Perfect, having a perfect relationship and having someone be "all in" with her gave me a headache. If I had to hear the word "perfect" one more time.I liked her when she was dealing with [...]

    22. I would go to war with this man Rome is goin through a lot he as just come out of the army he still isn't talkin to his parents after them hiding things from him an the relationship between him an his bro Rule is still very explosive cause of Rules relationship with Shaw so it's a lot to take in but everyone is getting annoyed with his pissed off attitude an Cora just could take it anymore she does know him as much as the rest of them but his attitude was so annoying so she throw beer over his h [...]

    23. 3.75 Big Brother Archer StarsThis story was so much better than Jetstill it wasn’t as good as Rule but I really did love big brother Archer! Rome and Cora’s story worked but there were a two extremely repetitive things throughout the story that irritated me: the idea of PERFECT and mentioning CORA’s EYES.I think I was looking for more of a LOVE STORY for these two than what was presented although it was realistic (minus the pissed off almost biker guy).I did find Rome Archer to be a wonder [...]

    24. The good: Decent plot and story line. Loved the sizzling chemistry between the two main characters in and out of the bedroom! Their characterizations were very catchy, honest, and real. I now wish Cora was my bestie! <3 She was so fiery and feisty and I loved every minute of it!The bad: If anything, it was the pacing. The beginning started off fairly slow but by 20 percent in I finally got into the flow of the book.The characters:Rome: tall, broad shouldered, short, dark hair cropped close to [...]

    25. Cora has been a steady character throughout the Marked Men series, a pint sized punk fairy that keeps the calm but equally causes the drama. All the way through the series I have imagined her as a blonde AJ Lee (WWE) and this book just solidified that. I mean come onrfect! Rome Archer is back from the war in Iraq, injured in action and totally unprepared for civilian life. Still suffering from nightmares and feeling more distant from his family and friends every single day. As a reader who has a [...]

    26. There’s something about the Marked Men series that makes it so easy to slip back into their world.  To re-join this group of friends and watch all of their dynamics and interactions unfold was so much fun.  I have missed them!  Cora and Rome were the perfect couple to drag me back into this series!  Their story was adorable and fierce.  They both burned bright, so when they were together their interactions were intense, sexy and heartfelt.  Now I have to finish this series!“We can go a [...]
