"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...

Be still my heart…an inked up MC who can quote great literary minds, kick ass and take names in the MMA cage and who's known as the "best damn lay in Galveston County?" Yes please!!

When Lurlene's friends Rayna and Emmie coerce her into spending the summer in their hometown of Bayou Vista, TX with the goal of breaking the three Declan brothers, Lurlene is skeptical. After all, she doesn't know Zeke Declan from Adam, and besides, she's a virgin. According to the notorious "rules" that Zeke has in place, she's not exactly the kind of woman Zeke would even look twice at.

Zeke is known around the Bayou for being a good lay, not for his long term potential, which is A-OK in his book. Except, when he meets Lurlene, he gets the feeling that she sees more in him than any other woman ever has...and he's so screwed.

UNGHHH, Ms. Gendron, if you found a way to bottle the potency of your MC's, you'd be a mad genius! ZEKE is the third book in the Breaking the Declan Brothers series, and like the first two, it packs a wildly erotic and emotional punch. From word one, your heart just breaks for the hell that Zeke has gone through in his life. You just want to grab him and stroke his back and whisper that he'll be ok, big mama's here. Lurlene (sorry to all named Lurlene, but it doesn't give me the warm fuzzies for a MC when all I can picture is a 75 year old big haired, gum snapping diner waitress whose sexy days are behind her) saw through his BS almost immediately, and witnessing Zeke's subsequent panic mode was sweet.

Speaking of sugary goodness, while there was lots of romance, the good stuff took a back burner to the two of them getting to know each other as platonic friends, something that was good for Zeke's ego and a solid foundation for their blossoming relationship. The sexy duo had mad chemistry, however I would've liked some more sweet sweet lovin' in ZEKE, because once just wasn't enough! And although I really enjoyed the book as a whole, the ending felt really rushed and didn't do justice to any of the couples. Even so, I'm anxious to sink my teeth into Daring the Kane Brothers, Ms. Gendron's upcoming series focusing on Lurlene's wild and crazy siblings.

Bottom Line: A swoon worthy finale to an EXCELLENT, emotional series. Pick them all up and prep the tissues, wine and batteries for a long weekend in.
