Waiting On Wednesday (27)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. This is a once-a-week look at the book(s) I am anxiously awaiting release.

"Rome" by Jay Crownover

This book is to be released January 7th, 2014. It is the third book in the Marked Men series.

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 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 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...

I read the first book in this series Rule and will be reading Jet soon both for a blog tour. I was hesitant in reading these books because I didn't recognize the author and wasn't sure if I would like a romance book without some sort of paranormal flare to it. Boy was I wrong. I absolutely loved Rule and I suspect it will be the same for Jet. Thus, I am anxiously awaiting the release of the third book in the Marked Men series, Rome, which features a character mentioned in Rule. Can't wait to read it!

What are you "Waiting On" this Wednesday?
