Review: Rule

This book is for adults. 

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 Thoughts:
You know how some books get you hooked and even though while you're reading the book, you're like , "What's so special about this book??" YOU CAN'T PUT IT DOWN. Rule was that book for me.  
Before I picked it up , I wasn't too sure I wanted to read an angsty new adult novel but I needed something to pass the time . Once I started, I rushed through it. 

I can't explain why I enjoyed this book so much .. I really don't think I can but I'll try my best . The story is pretty basic and predictable. Actually some parts were very predictable now that I think about it but I was enjoying the book so much that I am willing to overlook it.
The only explanation I can give is that the heart wants what the heart wants.

I think what made this book stand out for me was the RED- HAWT chemistry between the main characters.

I mean it was ELECTRIC. The main character Rule was just amazing . He was a jerk - YES but I got why he was the way he was. Shaw was a character I liked. Usually I hate the female protagonists in the novels but I don't hate her. Shaw and Rule together were amazing and so cute. The best thing about this novel is that every alternate chapter is from the male's point of view!

I also loved reading about the secondary characters in this novel. They all were so interesting.I hear book 2 is about Jet . Even though he's not a character I found very interesting in the novel, I'll still give it a shot because this author can get people hooked BADLY.(BTW: Please tell me she's going to write a novel about Nash)

Overall, if you're looking for a new new adult novel to read I suggest you pick this one up ASAP. If you hate the genre with a vengeance I say stay away (unless you want to give it a fair chance ). I for one was getting bored with this genre but this book has made me crave the sequel and maybe another new adult novel in between release dates. 

My Rating:

Guilty pleasure :P


  1. I think you explained your feelings very well. I've been there often, when I'm consumed by a book, and not sure why. Great review!

  2. I know exactly how that feels, and they are usually guilty pleasure reads for me too, hah. I just read a raving review for this book recently, and after seeing you all excited about it, I think I have to check this out now! Sounds like fun.

  3. I know Rachel loved this book too, and normally whilst I wouldn't find this cover very appealing, I'm glad that this book gave you something different from the NA genre! Lovely review!
