MY.. MY.. MY.. What a swoonworthy book. This is an independently published book and is all the talk this week. It was a wonderful read and almost evoked the same feelings (for me) as Beautiful Disaster. I couldn't get enough of Rule and his story. It is in the process of being re-edited, but I highly recommend that you pick this book up.. its my first MUST READ of the year!! Let the swooning commence:

"I know what you can do for me to make this officially the best birthday ever." I wanted to sound sure, to sound sexy and sultry, but I'm pretty sure I just sounded horny and drunk. I didn't care. I was here, and the real me, the one that wanted him so desperately and always had, and now there was no chance at putting her back in the cage.

I didn't think, didn't reason, just used the grip I had on him to pull myself up even taller and plant my mouth solidly over his. The ring in his lip was shockingly cold against my own; the rest of him was undeniably hot and hard. It was everything I ever wanted and even though he didn't kiss me back, I still ranked it up there as the best birthday gift ever. I went to settle back down on my booted feet when something shifted, something changed and Rule went from pliant recipient to something else entirely.

I had loved Rule Archer since the first moment I ever laid eyes on him. He was everything I shouldn't want and the only person I went out of my way to not try and please. He only saw me as a brat, and an entitled, stuck up princess but worse than that all he saw when he looked at me was his deceased twin's girl. It broke my heart because as much as I had loved Remy Archer there was never anything romantic between us and no matter how hard I tried to convince myself that loving Rule was a terrible idea, my poor heart just wouldn't listen. We tolerated each other, barely and had forged an uneasy alliance until one night I had too much to drink and changed the way we were forever. Suddenly life long secrets were no longer hidden and the one thing I always wanted for myself seemed obtainable as long as I was willing to go through hell to hold onto it.

Shaw Landon was a class act and I had no idea what to do with her. She was tied to my family, tied to the person that was my other half so I tolerated her and her haughty attitude when I didn't have any other choice. What I didn't know was that a short skirt and too many cocktails on her birthday was going to change my outlook on her for the rest of my life. Some people thought I hid behind all my tattoos and piercings, that I tried to distance myself from my dead twin, Shaw saw through it all and wasn't scared of what was underneath. We weren't supposed to be together, weren't supposed to be anything but uncomfortable acquaintances but that all changed in the blink of an eye. Now I had to figure out just how a girl like her and a guy like me were supposed to be in love without destroying each other. Add in her custom made ex and two disapproving sets of parents and the whole situation sounded like it was more trouble then it was worth.

Recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, language and drinking.

Also be sure to check out the very swoonworthy giveaway and preview ofDown To You by M. Leighton. If you haven't started this steamy series then get on it! :P It's a great one!

Oh Ashley, I have this book on my Amazon wish list, but I'm scared to buy it after reading some of the reviews about it needs editing. So now that I know you have read this book, tell the truth is that bad? Because I really want to read it and after your hot swoon I need to read it LOL!

good scene, not a book for me (if there is nothing paranormal or sci-fi like, then I don't read, lol, )

Glad you liked it (I seen your Apollyon review, and am so jealous you got to read already, :( I made myself stop reading Deity, till closer till it gets out, as I hate waiting.
Love that series. and Lux.

Thanks for stopping by my swoon.
