When Maximillian Sanders moved to Greyford, he had three goals: mend the broken relationship with his sister, keep her safe, and get into a division one college, playing hockey. There he meets the girl who breaks his heart and turns his world upside down, and it's her best friend who helps pick up the pieces.
Brook Taylor learned the hard way that in order to survive this ugly world, she needed to live by her own rules. Then she meets Max and for the first time, she’s tempted to break them. He’s off limits, and she has a plan that doesn't include a hot hockey player. 
He says he wants her, but she can see the truth in his eyes. She should have just followed her rules and guarded her heart. 
Those three little rules were supposed to save her, until she broke them all.

★★★★★ "I don't have the words to say how great this story is! It's raw, it's heartbreaking and it's so beautiful! It's not a light read by any means but that's how Max and Brooks's story was supposed to be." - SCBookAddict

★★★★★ "This book will break you, heal you, make you fall in love with characters, and their story. You will cry with them, and for them. You will love with them, and cheer for their happy ending. I won't spoiler the story, I will just say you HAVE TO, no, YOU NEED TO read this book." - @tinatejt

★★★★★ "Wonderful book and addictive series." - A Naughty Book Fling

This beautifully, well-written book put me through a whirlwind of emotions!  The characters are sure to pull on your heart strings and you cannot help but cheer them on as they look for their HEA. This is an engaging novel that pulled me in right from the first page and kept me entertained until the very end. The author does a masterful job with character development - demonstrating how both Brooke and Max evolved and gained maturity as the story progressed all while staying true to their characters.

If you’ve read any of the other books in this series, then you know that Max is Jeannette’s twin brother and I was thrilled to get my hands on his book. I absolutely adored Max and my high school self has claimed him as my book bf.  He is a popular hockey athlete and his protective nature and huge heart are what I loved most about him.  As for Brooke, I wasn’t sure what to think of her at first.  She is at times closed off and possesses a prickly exterior, but she completed endeared herself to me as the author revealed more about her. These two and their journey put me through all of the feels.  

Rules is a standalone in this author’s Greyford High series, but you will recognize the couples from the other two books.  Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Rules with its entertaining storyline and likable, well developed characters.  I received an early complimentary version of this book.
