Rule by Jay Crownover Review

Rule by Jay Crownover
Rule is a tattoo artist, who enjoy a life with no restrictions, and he is not going to let goody two-shoes Shaw hinder it. Little does he knows she is just what is missing out in his life.

Rule is the fist book in the Marked Men series by Jay Crownover. As of this moments there are a total of six books with the exception of Asa, the sixth book expected to be released on April 21st of this year.

Marked Men series:
1.) Rule
2.) Jet
3.) Rome
4.) Nash
5.) Rowdy
6.) Asa

Upon finishing this book, I felt withdrawal since I have became attached to Rule and Shaw. Similar to a good girl falls for bad boy category, these two have an intense dynamic:
"...opposites don't just attract, they freaking catch fire and burn the entire city down."
It pretty much sum up the chemistry between them. When they first met, it left a permanent mark in her mind, and heart even when they get under each other skins. He is the typical guy, who had no idea she has feelings for him until they started dating.

A story with two perspectives that gives readers a glimpse into the minds of Shaw and Rule. It was one of the reason I enjoyed reading this book. Stories told from a female or male characters may get monotonous after a couple of chapters. With both viewpoints, I felt as though I was inside their heads; rather than siding one side on a particular event.

If any readers are searching for a book with good girls, and bad boys, especially with tattoos, then this it the story. I highly recommend to those who enjoy adult romance filled with passion and funny moments. Just  a warning that it's a college romance story, so there will be some adult situations.

Rating: 5/5 stars

C-DRAMA REVIEW: When a Snail Falls in Love

When a Snail Falls in Love left me with quite a first impression that I ended up marathoning the whole series or the current episodes already released online. I kept telling myself “patience is a virtue” as I waited for the last two episodes of this crime thriller. Although I have been spoiled for the ending, I still waited for English subtitles because I wanted to see how it all ends.
Straight from the start, this drama intrigue viewers by its unique title, When a Snail Falls in Love, which simply draws us in. It’s a figurative saying; it’s not about an actual snail and lion. In this case, the snail is Xu Xu, who is clever when it comes to psychoanalyze a crime, but slow when it comes to love. Ji Bai is the lion in terms of his fierce and brave ability to pursuit crimes and love. Two polar opposites; yet they make a perfect crime solving duo.

DRAMA RECAPS: 7 First Kisses Episode 3 & 4

Previously on Seven First Kisses, fairy godmother Choi Ji Woo granted Soo Jin’s wish of getting her first kiss by allowing her to meet seven mysterious men with “kiss” number one given by Lee Joon Gi. Just right after the kiss, she came back to present time and met her handsome boss, Park Hae Jin aka potential kiss number2.
EPISODE 3:  Park Hae Jin  Due to her using her cell phone during work, her boss inquired her to work overtime with him. When she walked into his office, she expected there to be lots of works to be done; rather she ate dinner with him. He seeing it was already late said he will take her home.

FIRST & LAST IMPRESSIONS: Medical Examiner Dr. Qin (C-Drama)

I intentionally meant for this to be a first impressions post, but somehow it led to the lasting impressions and review of this crime action Chinese drama. The title of this drama was what initially drew me into watching it since I am a fan of the American television show, CSI (Crime Scene Investigators). As luck would have it this drama is very similar to CSI; yet different in its own ways. Similar in that the opening song sounds very much like the one for CSI with several different beats and it follows Qin Ming (played by Zhang Ruo Yun), a chief forensic investigator for the Chinese police as he solve crime cases. The different in that its very fast pace.
