"I'm not a ghost. I'm real and this job won't last forever."

Damage is the fifth book in the Lakefield Series and it comes with a sack full of surprises. Not only is the story suspenseful and gripping, but it's also funny and entertaining. I had a great time reading it, and enjoyed every minute.

"I just want a little bit of that sunshine you have, Suzie. Whatever you can give me, I'll take."

Suzie is a great heroine: brave, self-confident, determined, caring, loving. I already liked her during her

this book is one of the best books Jennifer has ever written. Just when you think you know everything... You realize you don't. I highly recommend this book for any Lakefeild lover. I don't want to say a lot and give anythin away... But I am sad to see this series is ended.

Maybe the kids will get a story soon!!!

And Stop killing Sonya off Jennifer... she is a nice person damn It!

This is the fifth book of the Lakefield Series by Jennifer Vester and I gotta say that this one is my second favorite of the total five books :)

Cade and Suzanne have been through a lot and I mean a lot but they are both survivors, and go forward, fighting every day to be strong and leave the past in the past... but sometimes the past can come out to haunt you in ways you couldn't imagine... no spoiler here...

These two have intense chemistry together and I loved how Suzanne is such a sassy and fe

OMG, Jennifer Vester has done it again !!! Such a talented author. I was up all night reading this book and I completely ignored my homework but it was totally worth it. Just when you think you know anything and things can't surprise you Jennifer Vester shows you how wrong you are. Cade and Suzanne's story is was just perfect and so entertaining. This author makes you want to keep reading until you finish the whole book and leaves you wanting to read more of her books.Seriously this book was fab ...more

WOW! Can I give it more than 5 stars??? This is the book I have been waiting for since Break. OMG, I have to say Jennifer Vester just gets better with every book. This book was freaking awesome! In typical Jennifer fashion once you think you know what's happening she smacks you up side the head with a plot twist!! Once you pick this book up be prepared to tune everything else out until you have read the last word. . . ...more

Suzanne is trying to pick up the pieces of her life after the death of Cade and ended up in a really bad relationship with David but she has broken free and has decided to leave Lakefield and head to Bakersville to be close to her mom.

Yet soon she realizes that her new job is not what she has expected and she also learns that a serial killer is on the loose.

When Suzanne finds herself the latest target of the serial killer will she allow her past back in or will she stand straight and rely on the

Oh, if this wasn't the perfect book to round out the Lakefield men! Suzanne is just trying to move past losing someone very important to her (though she wasn't sure how important she was to the person she lost), which helps her make the decision to move to her hometown in order to care for her only remaining family member. Unfortunately for Suzanne (or fortunately, depending on your view), her move brings her into contact with the one person she cared the most about, as well as dropping her squa ...more

*** I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.***
This is such a great series! Before I started book 1, I had never read a book by Jennifer Vester. Now when I hear her name, I know I am going to look forward to her books! Each of these men from the Lakefield series deal with real life and everyday issues! These books are realistic in nature and relationship issues. It is truly refreshing to read something that I don't need to question all the info in the book.

Cade, who we've thought was dead, isn't so dead. Not going to tell you why he had to leave Lakefield, just going to say it's a really good reason. Also going to say that when he meets up with Susanne again, she doesn't let him off too light. Angry and hurt doesn't even begin to describe how she feels. And she most definitely let's him know. Cade being gone for months, doesn't let a moment go by before locking her down. Something she's not exactly on board with at the moment. But when Cade's miss ...more

Suzanne has had enough. With her mother's health concerns she makes a decision. Heartbroken and unsettled what else can she do. This author, man gotta love her. For all of the giddiness from one of the reveals in this book she may have redeemed herself on one point but the twist that she has going on in this book will continue to knock you for a loop clear to the end. Nothing is what it seems and people are not who they say. Between the FBI and the guys Suzanne's life will never be the same. And ...more
I have been trying to think of a way to urge you to READ this book withouth giving away the twists and turns of the plot. I think the best way to do this book justice is to tell you it is the best in the series. It has all of the makings of an already great series...great chemistry between the characters...dedicated alpha male and a dash of suspense thrown in.
This story is about Suzanne, who has moved from Lakefield. Partially to care for her ailing mother, and partly to recover from a profound

Suzanne is upset that she never got a chance to tell Caden that she like him and wanted to maybe try to date him. He was killed and left her wondering what to do now. She decided it was time to move back home and help her mom out since she was slipping from time to time. She found a job and that job had surprised her with the one thing she thought she would never see again. Caden who was now called Mark. Everything was happening so fast but Caden was on a job and no one knew. She wasn’t sure wha ...more

WTF! I'm at a loss for words. I'm pretty sure I am in what is considered a book hangover, AND it is so worth it. This book was AMAZING! It is so worth it. Jennifer takes us on a rollercoaster of emotions. Each one of her male characters are hot and freaking ALPHA to the nth degree and Cade is no different. Suzie is a strong female character who is perfect for Cade. Her spunkiness rivals all the other girls put together and that is saying something since 1 of her best friends is Olivia. I will no ...more

Fantastic and mind blowing in every way. Damage does Damage to your heart and soul in such good and bad ways that you can’t help but love every minute of it. These two have such electric chemistry that you can feel it from your fingers down to your toes. They are so stubborn and fierce but also sweet and insecure. The love and loyalty drips off the pages and makes you swoon. Then the drama and the crazy twists will rock your world. I wanted to cry when I got to the last page.....I’m not ready fo ...more

This book has so many twist and turns it makes you throw your hands up and go why. This the the 5th book and last in the series. Suzanne is a waitress at Muse. She's had a huge crush on her boss Cade but did nothing about it. She was sassy when Cade was around. Then the worst happened. Cade died. It broke her. She was numb for days when she found out he was gone. It took her 8 months to  save enough money to move home and help her mom. She walks in to her new waitress job and meets her new boss ...more

Omg I can't believe it's all done. Cade and Suzie were the perfect way to wrap up such a beautiful story. All the boys were amazing but this story I think may have stolen my heart. Cade is without a doubt one of the biggest assholes in his group but he has the biggest heart. And sweet Suzie girl is really just the perfect ray of sunshine. Those two damaged souls were made for one another and watching their story unfold was amazing. Ms. Vester knocked it out of the park and totally knocked my soc ...more

I can't wait to read what is next for this author because after this amazing book I can only imagine!

Cade is dead and Suzanne is heartbroken. She wishes she had made her feelings known. She wishes she had been with him, kissed him, loved him while he was here. The constant reminder of him at Muse and the fact her mum needs more help spur her into moving back to her hometown. Her first day at her new job has an unpleasant, yet not surprise for her when she meets Mark, her new boss.
Throw a psycho serial killer into the mix and you have an excellent end to a fab series.

Another book in the Lakefield series and this one is crazy action packed. Suzanne is set to start her life over, the last thing she needs is man who is not who he says he is. Cade is back, bet you didn't see that coming but boy will you be glad he returned. This is the story of Suzanne and Cade, its full of action, secrets, love and a killer. I'm just going to leave my review at that. YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK, SO GOOD!! ...more

I enjoyed reading the Lakefield series. Damage was a fast paced, easy read and very hard to put down. This Suzanne and Cades story. When book 4 ended I felt bad for Suzanne when Cade died. I was excited to learn that wasn't exactly true. In this book lots of things happen with Cade and Suzanne's relationship. It's not a easy feat dealing with an Alpha. Helps to have a strong minded and willed heroine. This book was the perfect ending to this series. ...more

Heartbroken, Suzy decides to move back to her hometown to get away from the pain and look out for her mom. Then, things get real.
This book gives you so many twists and turns and WHAT? moments, you won’t put it down until you’ve read it all. By far, my favorite book in this amazing series.
Well played Jennifer Vester, well played!!

Jennifer knows how to get your heart and imagination going. The Lakefield series has been a favorite of mine but this book took it to a whole new level. These two characters will break your heart and soul but in the end they will piece you back together stronger than ever. Absolutely fabulous read.

I am so glad I discovered Jennifer Vester and I absolutely love the Lakefield series........I really hate to see it end. So as not to spoil anything, the H & h are well written, interesting characters, with an intense attraction and smokin’ chemistry. The book moves quickly, has great twists and turns, and just enough suspense too keep you turning pages. Great read, great series!
LidiasChoice De Jager
A wonderful way to end the series. Lots of action, love and just ordinary living. A lot of secrets are exposed and everything ties together very well. Although a stand alone, I would strongly suggest you start reading at book nr 1 as all of the books include detailed descriptions of all the characters. A very good series.

I loved this book and it was a great final addition to a brilliant alpha romance series.

I didn't see the twist of this story coming so it was a nice surprise to read about these 2 characters. I don't want to say much and ruin the surprise but it was a really good story line and obviously includes a sexy alpha and a fierce strong female.

Jennifer Vester is a romance author whose ambition is to entertain readers with off-beat female characters and the over-the-top alpha men that love them.

Her books revolve around romantic suspense with a little something for every reader. Always an HEA....(but look out for those twists!) It's romance suspense after all.

The Lakefield series deals with some very serious subjects at times.

“Love was family, it was in the friends you made. It was in the smile of a child and the tears of a parent. It bled into things like laughter, quiet moments, hard decisions, and restless dreams. Love didn’t choose kindly sometimes, it didn’t bother with what a person thought. It happened on its own, grew where it wanted, and withered if proven false.” 0 likes
