Sometimes the wrong choice can be just right . . .

Fun and fearless, Cora Lewis knows how to keep her tattooed "bad boy" friends at the Marked in line. But beneath all that flash and sass is a broken heart. Cora won't let herself get burned again. She's waiting to fall in love with the perfect man—a baggage-free, drama-free guy ready for commitment. Then she meets Rome Archer.

Rome Archer is as far from perfect as a man can be. He's stubborn, rigid, and bossy. And he's returned from his final tour of duty more than a little broken. Rome's used to filling many roles: big brother, doting son, supersoldier—but none of those fit anymore. Now he's just a man trying to figure out what to do with the rest of his life while keeping the dark demons of war and loss at bay. He would have been glad to suffer through it alone, until Cora comes sweeping into his life and becomes a blinding flash of color in a sea of gray.Perfect may not be in the cards, but perfectly imperfect could just last forever . . .

Val’s Review

4 Solid Stars

I really, really liked this one. I LOVED Rome and I loved he was a soldier. I have several friends who have come back from the war with injuries and/or PTSD and I thought the author did a really good job with that aspect of the story line.

I liked Cora (although she kind of annoyed me at some points); It was refreshing to read a story where the female was the tatted up sexually pierced one for once. I swear with all the books I read, one might start to think every man in the world apparently has his junk pierced…or at least every American tattoo artist/band member…

I liked that the sizzle between Rome and Cora started right away. It lent itself to a nice fast paced flow throughout.

I am REALLY looking forward to Nash’s story, let me tell you!
