I loved the ending to Jett and Brookes story. Jett will do anything to protect the people he cares about and that means he will do anything to protect Brooke and their baby - even kill if necessary.

I'm glad they got their happy ever after and that they got the family that they both deserve.

**I received an ARC for an honest review.**

I have read Brooke and Jett's story from the beginning and what a story it has been. Their story is filled with so much mystery, suspense, love, sexy time, heartache and so much more. The twists and turns in this series kept me hooked and waiting for more.

The Lover's Surrender is the final book in Jett and Brooke's story and it is a MUST read to get that closure for this couple. I love that things starting to go their way after some much needed perspec

When I finished this book, I had to immediately email the author and thank her for giving me such amazing characters and taking them on such a romantic, thrilling and emotional journey. I am so happy that they were finally able to get their HEA. I have been invested in this couple from the very first book and after a story filled with love, lies, deceit and betrayal, the author definitely did them justice with their final book. To be honest, I am also a little sad to see them go. After becoming ...more

With a threat that could take away everything including Brooke, Jett has to explain a few misconceptions Brooke has had and together they have to trust one another to move forward. With a storm brewing they need to lean on one another to survive.

Action packed story that doesn't let up until the very end. Loved Jett, he is intense and pure alpha male. I was so entranced with

What a ride

With everything that Jett and Brooke had been through, you wouldn't expect the wild end of the ride you experience. You think you know the way the story is going but then it unexpectedly changes.

What a finale to an absolutely marvellous series. Saying that, the author's storytelling technique had a way of making this reader suffer to the point of thinking about doing the unheard of; throwing her Kindle against the wall! An intriguing plot full of suspense and twist and turns had me sitting on the edge and is exactly my cup of tea. In essence, the author has outdone herself brilliantly regarding the flow betwe

Finally it is time for the final chapters with Jett Mayfield and Brooke Stewart who have mesmerized, confused, and frustrated me for two series while also making me fall in love with them. They are a complicated couple with diverse personalities and backgrounds. They have had internal battles as well as external ones. And this story brings it all back full circle and ties up all of those loose ends and answers our questions.

Jett has been so secretive and mysterious that it was easy to j

I have been anxiously awaiting the release of The Lover’s Surrender by J.C. Reed for some time now! I was on pins and needles waiting to see how Reed would choose to end Brooke and Jett’s story in this final piece of the No Exceptions series. It definitely had some suspense, a dash of heat, and certainly a sweet factor that I wouldn’t have expected from the Jett I had come to know.

“As long as I still loved her, which I knew would be forever, or as long as forever existed, I would fight for us.”

What I Loved: I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book, I’ve been on the edge of my seat my waiting to see what was next for Brooke and Jett. The minute I started reading I couldn’t put it down, I needed to find out how all of this was going end.

The story begins with a bit of a rewind building up the intensity and laying out the plot so you get a nice overview of what has happened so far. I liked that the point of views changed in the beginning because it

This is the conclusion of Brooke and Jett’s story and man what a story it has been from book 1 until the end. This will wrap up all the loose ends. It will have you understanding at what lengths Brooke and Jett, both individually, will do for the love.

Brooke has questions. She knows what she sees but not everything is black and white. When the truth is told, can she believe Jett or is he playing her? Brooke knows her love for Jett is beyond control but does he truly feel the same way abou

This is the last chapters of Jett Mayfield and Brooke Stewart.

This book brings this amazing story back around and makes sense of all the loose ends.

Not without their fair share of issues Jett and Brooke deal with so much but you do feel that they are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

I was pleased while reading to be able to understand Jett more, the way he thinks things through and acts the way he does, and it was quite an eye opener. Don’t get me wrong, there were times where I could

This is a contemporary romance with a touch of suspense. This is the fourth book in the No Exceptions series, but could be read as a stand alone. I read this book only, and even though I wanted more information about the couple I wasn't lost in the story. Even though the book was exciting... it for some reason didn't hold my attention for very long. I guess the indecisiveness of Brooke, it got on my nerves after a while. Yes I know she was full of skepticism but when is it enough, maybe after th ...more

This is the conclusion to the No Exceptions series and to Brooke and Jett’s story.

This book really gives it all, the conclusion to the epic journey that we started with Brooke and Jett seven books ago. The story is very concise and we do get all the answers that we as readers have been looking for to all the questions raised over the course of this book.

Jett is still the crazy caveman that Brooke cannot resist to love despite the evidence mounting against him for events that have taken place thr

A heart-pounding and satisfying conclusion!

It has been awhile since we have last seen Brooke and Jett, but J.C. Reed has done a fantastic job of bringing your memory back to where it needs to be. In The Lover's Surrender, the theme seems to be secrets, and how they can tear people apart, but will Brooke and Jett ever claw their way out of the mess they find themselves in and triumph together? The passion these two ignite feels like two trains colliding, it's fast and powerful.

I was so happy when JC Reed decided to give Brooke and Jett more story by writing the No Exceptions series. I was not at all disappointed. I think I could read about the couple indefinitely. All of my questions were finally answered in this last installment. The beginning of the book was a nice refresher to remind me of what all had happened in the past book. After y ...more

Best ending ever!!

I waited patiently for the ending of Jett and Brooke story!!! Ms. Reed did not disappoint. I've been with Jett and Brooke from the beginning and through both series this final book has to be my favorite!!! I enjoyed all the twists and turns the storyline took in this series, but this book wrapped it up into a neat little package. Was great reading about them actually being a couple and sharing and working together. Was worth the wait and will be a series I will read again!
