book blurb

“Some guys call, some date, and some guys, they might even get married.

But, sweetheart, I ain’t any of those guys…” ~ Zeke Declan

Every girl in Galveston County knows about Zeke Declan’s rules and has agreed to them or is considering them.

Rule #1 Don’t call him. He’ll call you.

Rule #2 He doesn’t date.

Rule #3 No sleepovers.

Rule #4 Absolutely, no virgins.

When a couple friends talk me into going back to their hometown in the Bayou for the summer and challenge me to break “the best damn lay in Galveston County” along with every single one of his ridiculous rules, I’m confident that I can get the job done. I’m no stranger to men. I have five older brothers. I’m a teacher and I’m used to being around rebellious teenagers. However, Zeke Declan is definitely not someone that I could have prepared for. He’s not a testosterone-fueled, immature boy. He’s a confident, arousing, playful, and mind-melting man. But, behind that sexy charming smile, I know he’s hiding a secret. And, in order to break him, I’m going to need to find out what it is…

Favorite Quotes:

Mom says the gym smells yucky, but I like it. Smells like Dad’s leather jacket, sweat, and a little like my oldest brother, Jax’s room. Mom says that smell is puberty. I’m not sure what puberty is, but ever since Jax got it, he got some muscles and he shot up a few inches too. I want some puberty. Mom says I’ll have to wait a few more years before I get it. I hate being the youngest. I’m always the last to get anything.”

His brows draw together as if I’m a book he’s reading and he just ran into a word that he doesn’t know the meaning.”

What am I thinking? I’m not, that’s the problem. I’m lost to his masculine scent, his charming smile, and his twinkling eyes. He’s girl goo, and once he spreads a bit of his charm on you, it banquets.”

Don’t let the sweet little Miss School Teacher bit fool you. My sis here can change the oil in her car, she’s got a wicked curve ball, and when she’s pissed off, she swears like a fucking trucker.”

…when I first saw you, I was afraid to get too close. When I got too close, I was afraid to kiss you. When I kissed you, I was afraid to touch you. When I touched you, I was afraid to let you into my heart. Now that you’re in my heart, I’m afraid to lose you.”

My Review:

Kelly Gendron’s skill set just gets better and better. I have now read the Declan brothers series and a few of her Troublemakers, and find myself greedily wanting to clear my calendar and read her entire listing. Her writing has never failed to entertain. Her characters are edgy and flawed, yet I still manage to fall for her lovable bad boys every single time! Zeke is one of her best. The character of Zeke is a devilishly handsome player that oozes charisma, and females drop at his feet despite his point-blank one and done rules. Knowing Zeke was a playboy going in, I expected not to like him much, and I also expected a lot of sweaty sheet action – wrong on both counts, but I wasn’t the least bit upset to be in error. The story was surprising, emotive, relevant, thoughtful, and well paced. I just wish he had more brothers.
