‘I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.’ Oscar Wilde.

I love this series... I really do...
But i think that Zeke's book was the best of them all!!!

As you already know, everything started when three best friends decided to go to Bayou to spend the summertime and each one of them had a mission...
To break one of the Declan brothers...
The thing is that yes, they broke them, but the boys manage

Zeke Declan is a man who comes with his own set of rules. Rules you must obey if you want to play:
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.

Lurlene is the woman who has been tasked to break each and every one of his rules. What does she have that the others don't, a mind to say no and the sexy teacher vibe to entice his appetite.
She’s the adversary to my rules. She’s here to corrupt my str

4 Rules Are Meant To Be Broken Stars!

I've been dying for the youngest Declan brothers story. I was super excited when this landed on my kindle! I loved it!

Zeke the broken manwhore with a set of rules he never breaks.

Lurlene is a very sweet teacher who teaches English. One day she's out enjoying the view at the park when a guy that's been out jogging sits next to her. He's got a hat pulled down low on his head but she's still able to see his beautiful eyes. When he starts quoting poems she's s

I enjoyed reading Zeke and Lurlene's story. Zeke is the know for his promiscuity and he even has a set of rules the ladies must abide by. Lurlene's not a fan of his rules and decides she's going to make him break them. I'm not a big fan of the general premise of the three friends being there to "break" the Declan brothers but this story was otherwise entertaining. There's are two parts where Zeke does things with other women after meeting our heroine and while the first could be explained as him ...more
4 "Broken Rules" Stars

I love the Declan brothers and watching them fall was oh so satisfying. Zeke, the youngest brother and last to fall, has rules. To guard himself as much as the woman he sleeps with he makes sure that each woman he takes to bed knows the score. Don't call him. He doesn't date. No sleepovers. And absolutely, no virgins. But when Lurlene shows up with her two best friends, the tables get turned.

I was expecting so much more from this book after the first two. This one starts off back at the beginning of Jax's and goes through Slate's and then more. I was expecting a whole lot more heat from the best lay in Galveston County. Then the book just ended. At least she's starting a new series with Lurlene's five very hot brothers.

This is the story of Zeke and Lurlene. If you have already read the previous two books of the series, then you already know that the three friends plan to "break" the three Declan Brothers and in this book it's Lurlene's turn.

Oh, man, ZEKE! This boy just about killed me with his heartbreaking past and caring, loving nature. He was one thing on the outside, and another, softer thing on the inside and…

Sigh. That about sums it up.

I’ve read each of the books in the Breaking the Declan Brothers series, and I’ve really, really enjoyed them. They’re quick reads, sexy and fun, but with a dose of heartache and angst that just propels the story to the next level. Zeke, the third and final book, is no exception.

Zeke is the youngest of the Declan brother's that co-owns the family bar. He is a notorious ladies man, but he had 4 rules that a woman has to agree to before he takes them home: 1. He'll call you, don't call him, 2. No dates, 3. No sleeping over, and 4. no virgins. And then he meets Lurlene, and she's determined to break every single rule.

this was a hard one to rate. While I enjoyed the character build up and chemistry between main leads. I am not a fan of h fighting his feelings and being with other women or kissing other women to make h jealous. once h & h start something I don't like them to be with other ppl. its a form of cheating in my eyes. Hence the low rating.

I kind of wanted more from this read...I am trying to figure out why it went by so fast. I know good reads and when they are over before you know it that means it was a good book...right? I don't know how to explain it. I felt that Slade and Jax were able to have more time invested in their stories and with this read you definitely had to have read the first two books in the series to understand.

I'm thinking Zeke normally isn't a cuddler but he'll make and exception for Lurlene, “if that is what you want, yes. But I gotta warn ya, when I press against you, you’re going to feel how my body reacts to your ‘beautiful,’ and you’ll find no need to question whether or not I want to eff you.” Lurlene is quite the handsy woman, "I run my hands down his shorts, grab his fine a**, and yank him hard against me. “Ah,” his arms tighten, “what you think you’re a tough girl or something?” I enjoyed th

Book 3 in the Breaking the Declan Brothers series. This book can be read as a standalone, and is told during the time frame of both Jax and Slate, but I recommend you also read them. They are both really good reads and you will get to know both the main protagonists in Zeke that little bit more. If anything it makes for a much more rounded story.

Review by Trinette Dungee

There are rules to being with Zeke Declan, rules that anyone he takes home has to agree to. He doesn’t give out his number, he doesn’t date, he doesn’t spend the night (and neither will they) and he most certainly does not do virgins. Oddly enough, women agree to these rules and he’s never had a problem…until Lurlene.

I’ve been waiting for Zeke’s story! Zeke’s story is the third installment of the Breaking the Declan Brothers series. You know that saying, “I’m a lover, n

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

Before sleeping with Zeke Declan, you have to know and to agree to his rules:

Rule #2 He doesn’t date.
Rule #3 No sleepovers.
Rule #4 Absolutely, no virgins.

But Lurlene is about to break them one rule at a time. Thanks to her friends, she was in for the summer vacation of her life in the Bayou with the challenge to “break” Zeke Declan and his rules. Lurlene or Lulu to her brothers knew she can break

This is the third book in the Breaking The Declan Brothers series and we finally get to find out all about the youngest brother, Zeke and how Lurlene finally tames him.

The story is told in a parallel time as the other two books so you do get glimpses of what has already happened to the other brothers. Now we get to understand just what had been snippets of Zeke in those books.

Zeke is the youngest brother and at first I was thinking he was shallow and not somebody I thought I would pine for like

Oh wow, Zeke Declan is really one HOT specimen of a guy. He has his rules and he NEVER breaks them, not until Lurlene comes into the picture that is.

Zeke tries and I mean he tries really hard to act like a hard ass with Lurlene, he doesn't take her bait and as much as he wants to bed this beautiful girl, he just won't. But it seems like Lurlene is here to break all of Zeke's rules. The question is, can she break them????

I really enjoyed reading Slate so I was a little dubious about weather Zeke could top his older brothers story but I have to say Zeke stole the show!!

I couldn't wait to delve into Zeke and Lurlene's story after finishing Slate. I knew it was going to be good but I got more than I bargained for. This book really enthralled me and I couldn't set it down, I was reading it everywhere I could get two seconds.

Zeke is the ultimate playboy with his set of rules, he won't break them for anyone

This is a good book. I really enjoyed it and it was a great finish to the Declan brothers. I was a tad shocked about the ending...I mean it turned out like I thought but not really. I don't want to give away the end so I can't explain.

If you wanted the hot sex the other stories had it really isn't there. It is more story then that. There is a great deal of hurt and tragedy in this book. I would have given it five stars, but the guilt and the trauma does not go away with one telling of the story.

Zeke is the last remaining Declan brother and Lurlene's mission.

It was so much fun to see the two of them interacting together. The chemistry between Lurlene and Zeke was perfect and all the teasing... loved it!

But as in the previous book every one of the Declan Brothers hide a secret and Zekes was so sad and heart wretching...

But in the end everything turned out just fine.
