Rome: A Marked Men Novel
In Rome, the third book in the Marked Men series, we meet Cora, the spitfire piercing artist and office manager of the tattoo shop that is central to this series; and Rome Archer, a soldier returning from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. I have not read the other two books, but the author gave enough background information that let me know what was going on, without being redundant for those who may have already read the books. Rome was an easy, enjoyable read; however, the predictability factor was pretty high. The characters were well developed and enjoyable, but the plot felt like it had been done before. There were several very important plot themes, for instance the fact that Rome suffers from PTSD that I wish had been explored a little further, not only for the sake of storyline development, but it would have been an excellent opportunity for Ms. Crownover to really step up her game with real-life dramatic content that is abundant in today’s daily news headlines. Rome was definitely worthy of four stars and I plan to go back and read the beginning of the series.
