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 . . .

Why Rome? Oh I so love him! Even more than his little brother Rule.  I love his big blue eyes.  I love his protective soldier ways.  I love his yumminess! AND, this boy needs some cuddling, serious cuddling! 

Here's some more reasons why I love him...

I had been kissed plenty in my lifetime--by good boys and bad boys, by boys I liked and boys I didn't, by boys I spent just a minute with and boys I had spent years with, but no one had ever kissed me like this.  Something happened when that firm mouth settled over mine.  My brain short-circuited, my common sense and basic rationality took a hike, and all I was left with was bundle of raging hormones and a desire so sharp and pointed it almost hurt when it started to pulse under my skin. (Kindle Location 1290)


"Because I'm freaked out that whatever I say might be the wrong thing.  And right now, being with you is the one thing that feels solid and real...You're so full of color, so vibrant you never get lost in all the gray in my head.  I don't want to lose that."  (Kindle Location 1901)

I need the next book, like yesterday! I so loved this book.  My review will be part of the tour in January and I can't wait to gush some more about my favorite Archer.

What ya think?  Have a book boyfriend for me?  Leave me a comment.
