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 . . .
***received this arc for exchange for my honest review***
Well..what can I say about this fabulous book?!!! That if you wanted my opinion its the best out of the marked men series??? Yes! Yes! Yes!. I love big brother, and if I could keep him, I would. Rome is the third installment of the Marked Men Series. Rome, Rule’s older brother aka Captain No Fun and his friend Cora aka Tink or half pint.. We saw Cora in both Rule and Jet- and to have her own story was super awesome. She wasn’t the typical model type girl, she was the short hair, tatted pixie that wouldn’t a chance for love. A second chance, and while having her “Perfect” man out there she wasn’t so sure if she would find it!

Coming home with PTSD dealing with guilt, depression and nightmares. One drunken night of wild sex brings them together, the arrogant ex military man, could she chance getting her heart broken AGAIN.

This can be read as a stand along and you may even finish in one sitting, but Rome has a special place in my heart…..
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.
