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...

Kelly Gendron

Kelly’s motto ~ "Bad boys, give 'em a little time and experience, and they will evolve into misbehaving men!" And what hot-blooded woman doesn’t want a naughty, all grown up bad boy?

Kelly Gendron is the author of the TroubleMaker series, Breaking the Declan Brothers series, and a few other romantic suspense novels.

When she's not writing steamy, blush producing romances, she's out meeting new people while representing a group of reputable nursing facilities. You can find Kelly in a quiet suburb, somewhere between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. If you Google her, she’ll pop up there too. And, please do find her. Kelly loves to hear from her readers, and meeting new people.

My Review:

 The third book in the Breaking the Declan Brothers was one that did not disappoint. I genuinely liked the first two books in the series but this one seems to have made an even bigger impression on me than any other Kelly Gendron's books. Full of emotions and anxiousness I so wanted this book to have a happy ending from the very beginning. For most readers they can get a sense of whether the book would be a good suit for their tastes. I happen to be the type of person that when I read the synopsis for Zeke on Goodreads (see link below) I knew I wanted a happy ending. For a man who considers himself emotionally damaged to find the one girl who would be worth the risk of giving up the manwhore (excuse my french ;) lifestyle and overcome his dark and tragic past. I LIVE and breathe for those types of reads. 

“Some guys call, some date, and some guys, they might even get married. But, sweetheart, I ain’t any of those guys...” ~ Zeke Declan
(This is the first line of the blurb on Goodreads... Tell me this doesn't give you some feels!) 

 Zeke for all intense and purposes will be the star of my dreams for weeks to come. Underneath the tough, sexy, and quite frankly a big softie in the heart, was a man well deserving of love. Just so happens the right woman was under his nose all along. Lurlene is a character that I was not expecting. She was a good girl to the core but had a way of letting life become dull and uninteresting, that is until Zeke brought out the sex kitten in her he knew was there all along. The chemistry between Zeke and Lurlene was an inferno the heart and a tingling sensation to all the right parts!

The storyline was fascinating from beginning to end and I can say this has become one of my top 2016 reads thus far!

Thank you to Kelly Gendron & Book Enthusiast Promotions for the chance to read and review an ARC copy it was a delightful read indeed!

  1. I'm just now diving in to this one now can't wait!
    Following your goodreads reviews as well you officially got me hooked on Darynda Jones books thanks for the recommendation

    1. Enjoy!

      P.S. DARYNDA JONE'S books have me hooked as well! I pre-ordered my copy of The Curse of the Tenth Grave as soon as I saw the pre-order link was posted NO HESITATION there ;)

  2. Two questions Im not seeing a link to buy the paperback edition on Amazon do you know when that will be released? My other question is, is this the final book in the series or is there going to be another one thats in the works? I really enjoy this series so im praying theres another!

    1. Hi ellielove1984 I will be sending an email to the promotions group tonight in regards to an expected paperback release date for you and will post the response in this comment thread below as soon as I am made aware.
      As to your second question I have not seen any new postings on Kelly Gendron's Goodreads page for a fourth Declan Brothers novel. I will be sure to include this question in the promoters email (will be sent directly after this comment post) if there is a possibility of a spin off.

      I am also holding out hope for a spin off I can't seem to get enough of this authors work! Highly recommend checking out the series Troublemakers also written by Kelly as well.

    2. Update: I contacted the promotions group and your question was sent to the author. As soon as I receive word I will post the estimated date for an Amazon paperback release on here. As well as if there will be a continuation to the series whether that be in an additional Declan Brothers novel and or a spin off series.

      Okay I was just updated by the promotions group and the message was as follows:
      ☑️ Paperback release is THIS week. The author is waiting for the final proof to come in before it is published to the masses. If all goes as planned, and onl if there are no errors with said proof, then the links will be posted. In which case I will then post an update on the original post for a paperback copy.
      ☑️ Zeek is the last book in the series. BUT Kelly is currently coming up with story plots for a said spin off called Daring the Kane Brokers. She is currently working on the first title in the series which has yet to be announced.

      (I apologize for any grammatical/ spelling errors in this message. Posting from my iPhone is not ideal but I wanted the information to go to you sooner rather than later)

    4. Thank you Ill keep watch on your site. I cant wait for a spin off I was hoping but didn't want to get over exited in case it didn't happen... If Zeek is the last book im going to have to re-read the entire series now to get me through till the 1st spin off is released.
