With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl's rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn't want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet's dark, haunted eyes. She's afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on f ...more

5 Stars for Jet. I loved him!
1 Star for Ayden. She drove me nuts!
Equals 3 overall Stars!

OH BOY! Where to start with this very frustrating story. To say I struggled to keep my temper under control while reading this book is an understatement! I spent most of the story feeling the need to completely and utterly smack the heroine. I guess after that statement it's pretty obvious WHO became my main issue throughout this book...that's was the heroine, Ayden.

Jet Keller was all kinds of temptation wrapped up in too-tight pants and with too many personal demons hidden in those dark, golden rimmed eyes. He was every girl’s rock-and-roll fantasy, with an edge that made him just sharp enough to be hard to handle.

A delightfully yummy novel that I feel I've been waiting an eternity for. Most lovers of this genre fell in love with Rule in the first of the marked men series, and I was another in a long line of excited readers when it was announced that book two would lead us into the world of Jet and Ayden.


I enjoyed this book lots, nothing gets me hooked more than a friends to 'let's hop between the sheets together' story and Jay Crownover delivers once again.

3.5 Stars. Jet and Ayden have had a tension between them for a while. They are both doing their best to ignore it. After an explosive moment, they realize they can't ignore their chemistry any longer. Ayden has a past she is trying to outrun. Jet is holding himself back from his full potential professionally and personally. For a good deal of the book, they have their ups and downs. Their sensual scenes are ridiculously hot. I mean the dude has an interesting piercing that is just... delish. Jet ...more

Does the old saying opposites attract really have merit… and what really is opposite if, underneath it all, the two in question have more of the same in common than they think?

That really is one of the burning and continuing questions considered in the follow-up book Jet, in the series Marked Men by Jay Crownover.

It pains me to write this review because I was all about the first book of this series Rule which sits on my favorite shelf... enough said.

Any who, the next installment in the series, Jett missed it’s MARK for several reasons and had me skimming (which I very rarely do).

I was all excited to fall for Jett Keller the lead singer of a local band and he didn’t disappoint. Jett was all heart!!

My disappointment fell completely on Ayden. Her inner dialogue felt like it was stuck on a continuous loop

Real time talk, my fellow humans…

Slut shaming, I HATE IT!! I don’t know how I can express in a cohesive way how insidious I think it is. How it takes the sexuality of women and reaffirms the social standard that it is perfectly accepted, and actively encouraged, for men to explore their sexuality but that a woman is not permitted the same sexual freedom. Not only does it do this but it also propagates jealousy and validates behaving in a jealous and insecure manner

So to sum it all up:





So....I didn't really like Ayden very much. And I kind of thought Jet should just tell her....

The whole old Ayden/new Ayden thing was SO annoying!

And the fact that she kept dogging Jet for being a musician--claiming that he was never going to be able to provide her stability and blah, blah, blah! Really??

I mean could she have been a bigger bitch when she "dumped" him in the car after his studio just got cleaned out....after they had just

”Are you in love with me, Ayd?
I’m in love with us, Jet.”

Sexy, pleasureable, full of angst and great between the sheets action, Jet is a well thought sequel in Marked Man Series. I was hooked from the beginning and really enjoyed reading about troubled characaters, that only Jay Crownover can so easily picture.


There is nothing better and sexier than reading a novel about ripped, tattoed and pierced bad boy rocker, that can so effortlessly make your panties drop.

Seriously, guys!!! The "Marked men" series are addictive!!!

I thought that after "extreme" Rule, i couldn't love anyone else from the rest of the gang...
But i was so fuckin' wrong!!!
Jet managed to get under my skin and to remain there like a tattoo...

But i have to be fair... There are not only the guys....
Their girls are also so damn awesome!!!
And the chemistry between the couples electrify the air around them...

I can not stop reading about them...
At this point, i need Rome and Cora so badly!

This is not a romance novel.

This is a story about an idiotic, judgmental, slut shaming woman, who runs away from the best thing that ever happened to her, for the entire book.

Ayden is the most frustrating "leading lady" (view spoiler) I have read about in recent times. Her justifications for things are ridiculous. (view spoiler)
Jet is just perfect

Ayden as had a hard up bringing but she as turned her life around she doesn't have 2 worry about anyone but her she has a great best friend Shaw an lives with Cora who is just as great an then there is the Marked Men who r just amazing but Ayden doesn't let anyone in the old Ayden the one who she was WoodWard isn't someone she wants to be an as had her on lock down since moving to Denver but there is one person that gets to her more than anyone is Jet he does funny things

OMG Please, make it stop. It's official. I'm too old for this crap.


The fault is mine. Not the book. Not the author. It's like me going to the store and buying a pair of Free People, super skinny, embroidered and bedazzled jeans. It's not done at this age. And if it it, clearly something is wrong in my head. That's not to say I can't sport some seriously awesome True Religion skinny boyfriend jeans. And I do. That's appropriate.

I loved Rule by Jay Crownover. It was full of longing and unrequited love, a type of romance I can’t resist and Ms. Crownover got it just right for me. When I heard she was writing a companion novel I was over the moon! Jet did not disappoint!

Ayden, seems like a sweet and wholesome Kentucky country-girl, but looks and packaging can be deceiving. Ayden is far from being an innocent even though that’s the image she wants to cultivate. She wants nothing to do with the previous life she led and doe

I am really excited to start this book when the release date came..

While reading first half of book, i felt annoyed & bored to both main character,i feel everyone love them but me

specially to Ayden. all her reasons to push Jet away, totally not acceptable for me. Denying want she really wants is not my ideal heroine. not cool Ayden,not cool

So I love this series and I have read all of the other ones...but I just have no interest in this one...

It could be because Ayden seems annoying...

...or simply because Jet wears really tight pants...




Nope, nope, nope, nope.


I just threw up. In my mouth.
This second installment tells us the story of Jet and Ayden, both friends of Shaw and Rule.
Jet is a musician and lost himself in alcohol, women and music to try forgetting his family problems and has everyone at arm’s length because he has afraid of get truly connected to someone. He knows that his family is only bringing him pain but still he can’t let go. And although he wants Ayden, he believes that she deserves someone much better than him.

There is something about this author's writing that is so perfect to me. Her books flow seamlessly and I found it impossible to put this down - I loved every word. If I thought Rule was fantastic - Jet completely blew me away. And when I wanted to be angry at both Jet or Ayden at times, the author made me see their points of view so amazingly that I felt like I could relate to them and their circumstances. I fell in love with both of them and absolutely loved their story.

Jet is the lead singer
"Jet" is book #2 in the Marked Men series, and for me I didn't enjoy it as much as the first. As far as the writing style went, I loved it just as much as Rule's book. My main issue was the heroine in this story. Ayden's decision making drove me insane, and I found myself more and more irritated with her. Jet and Ayden spent a lot of time apart in this book, and that is something in my romance books that I don't enjoy. I don't mind some angst while the couple are trying to figure things out; but ...more

....better than the first one ☺
A bit better with the sex scenes - a bit more explicit. But there's still LOTS of room for more!
What I hated - and already hated in the first book - and also hate in other books if it happens too often - like recently in Jennifer Probst's Everywhere and Every Way I loved that book but the BASIS expression is soooo horrible. All those ON A DAILY BASIS - CONSTANT BASIS - REGULAR BASIS.... just say daily or regularly or whatever - just not that BASIS shit - I HATE IT!

She's a little bit country, he's a little bit rock & roll...

I started this already liking Ayden from the first book in the series, Rule (Marked Men #1) so I wasn't surprised that I found the characters in this installation to be more tolerable and more realistic. But there is still something I am missing from the story. I thought maybe it was a lack of understanding of Jet's character because I'm not a rocker chick so I went to the interwebs to investigate what Jet's band is supposed

This is one of those books where you just want to knock Jet and Ayden in the head. Both have their own issues but I mean why would you want to run away from Jet, he is HOT!!!! It was nice to catch up with Rule and Shaw and I still love Rule, maybe more than Jet. A few things at the end caught me by surprise, but a lovely ending.

In this 2nd story of the Marked Men series, we get to know more about metal band lead vocalist Jet and Shaw's best friend, Ayden.

I was very much looking forward to their story. I really loved Ayden in the first book and I was looking forward to getting to know more about Jet who we met briefly in Rule.

They had similar terrible upbringing that shapes what they do and how they live their lives currently.

Okay...Where do I start?....:(

I guess I will start by saying that this is all Rule's fault. I loved his book so much that I should've known that nothing after was going to live up to it. I was so excited for this book but it was a total letdown. I had to force myself to finish it. It was so repetitious. The same things were said over and over and freakin' over again. It was annoying and it began to piss me off. The problem wasn't so much Jet, I liked him just fine. The problem was A
