3.75 - 4 Stars

As a LONGtime lover of this series, reading this was like wrapping myself in a warm blanket and hanging out with some of my best friends around the fire.

I love this series.
I love these characters.
And, somehow, I never get bored reading about them.

That said, this book obviously cannot stand alone and I wouldn't recommend reading it out of order. Even attempting to read just Z's trilogy probably wouldn't be that great.

But I digress.

"Now I can focus on making Lilly mine. Permanently."

Zero Apologies is the 14th book in the Lost Kings MC Series and the third book in the Z and Lilly trilogy. You would think I would be tired of all of this LOKI LOVE but the truth is this is one series (and one author), I will never get enough of. After Lilly and Z have been through hell and back, they now have the opportunity to prove the world wrong and find their happy ever after. The road has been beyond difficult for these two and yet,

Z and Lilly’s story has come to an end. For now cause the series will continue through other characters and thankfully I’ll still get more of these two amazing characters.
Zero Apologies continues immediately where Zero Regret ended. The pace was a little slow for me to begin with but the story quickly got its footing and picked up its pace and I was immersed as I always am when I’m reading a Lost Kings book.
Lilly showed how strong she truly is and if she’s capable of being an ol’ lady to a Lost

The sizzling conclusion to Zero and Lilly's story is here!

2,5 stars

Quite an anticlimactic end of a lukewarm trilogy.

Everything we needed to to know happened in the second one; here we basically got a recycled story from Rock and Hope, but cut out for Z and Lilly. And I get it that Ms. Lake wanted to spend more time with the older characters, but making us get through all of the MC politics was way too soap opera style for me. It was dragging, REPETITIVE and boring.
So I guess I'm done with the series.

PS. Why do authors keep dividing the stories of th
4 Z and Lilly Stars.

This was the much anticipated third book focussing on Lilly and Z. It carries straight on from the previous book and although our couple are together, they are facing huge problems and Lilly in particular has to decide whether she is going to stay by Z's side or if the lifestyle and the risks it carries are too much for her.

I did enjoy this story but it was a little bit slow to get going and for me it didn't really pick up until the 38% mark. The first part is important tho

Usually when an author bombards me with potential plot bunnies for a handful of side-characters during a book I get ragey. But I’ve been reading this series for years now and I freaking love that I’ll be able to follow the LOKI family for years to come.

This 3rd book in Z & Lilly’s trilogy was bittersweet for me. These two have been dancing around each other for years in this series. Lily disappeared and secretly had his baby...

Zero Apologies were the next chapter for Z and Lilly stories. Their relationships were put to the test and the dilemma. This slow burn romance was sweeter, sexy swoon and LOKI families had never let me down..

The conclusion of Z and Lilly's story was exactly what I needed. I really enjoyed seeing the support cast from both the upstate and downstate chapters. At first I was hesitant to get attached to Z's new brothers in this charter, but Autumn hooked me as usual and has me craving more. She knows how to do what's best for the story, especially in an ongoing series, versus just wrapping everything in a neat little bow that might have been easier to write. This dual POV narrative shows how hard the st ...more

And Finally We Have It...

We certainly have waited a long time for Z and Lilly's story and I can finally acknowledge the wait was worth it.

Z... Ah Z. I have loved this character from the very get go. He is generally a lovable guy and how he was with Hope from the beginning solidified my thoughts throughout all the Lost King books.

In these 3 books we discovered a more emotional Z than I expected. His love for his Brothers, well the whole Lost King family was endearing. His love for Lilly and Chan

Well Autumn Jones Lake does it again, what a way to end the story of Zero and Lilly. I loved it.

When I first started reading Zero Tolerance and Zero regret I wanted Z to go back home where he belongs but reading Zero Apologies I think he is exactly where he is meant to be. He has the love of a good woman, his Son and a charter that respects him, he is a fantastic president and I truly believe he will do wonderful things. He’s smart, sexy, and has the love of all those around him. No wonder ever
Michelle Brace (Wicked Babes Blog Reviews)
Autumn did such a wonderful job delivering the last in Zero and Lilly's trilogy. I couldn't put this book down which happens anytime I pick up a book by Autumn. We are finally prepared for these two to get their HEA but once again their journey isn't done with the twists and turns.

Their love and commitment really gets put to the test in this one when they could lose it all. The MC is going to once again rally and show Lilly the family she could have with them but of course there are those that

Counting down the days in eager anticipation...

ETA another fine and fitting “ending” for my two favourite characters. I do hope we hear more from them as the series progresses though.

Z and Lilly are just dynamite... can’t wait to see where their life’s journey takes them ... far into the future I hope.
Z and Lilly get their ending

I read a lot of biker romance. I mean, a lot. And I like nothing more than to sink into a good series (no matter what genre). I have to say Autumn Jones Lake knocks it out of the park every time. Her characters are well developed, from the main characters to the minor ones. Because even the minor characters tell us a lot.

Is it the truest depiction of an Outlaw MC? No, it's definitely romanticized but that's ok I'm reading for entertainment. Life is grim enough. Havin

Wow!! What an exciting and emotional finish to Lilly and Z's tumultuous relationship. There were plenty of scary twists and edge of your seat moments (no surprise there considering how this author loves to tease us) but through it all I was confident L & Z & little Chance would get their HEA. How about all those kids though...LOKI MC needs to open a daycare center next to that strip club...hehe...but seriously, it was heart-warming to see how all these hardened bikers could be so gentle and lovi ...more

I met Zero and Lilly about 5 years ago. That’s when I met the Lost Kings MC. The minute they landed on the page I knew without a doubt they belonged together, forever. They took their sweet time getting there, but here we are …. But here’s the thing, Autumn never stops building her world or her people so this isn’t really a conclusion, more like a fork in the road for the Lost Kings MC and a pause of focus on Z and Lilly. And it is for that very reason I find myself telling you for the umpteenth ...more

Autumn Jones Lake continues to prove that a long running series can still stand strong 14 books in.

Zero Apologies picked up where Zero Regret finished (thank goodness!!!), being left hanging wondering what happened was cleared up very quickly giving a full picture straight up. There was certainly some twists and turns keeping me on my toes wondering which direction their story was going in.

I don’t even know where to start with this. Autumn is hands down my favorite author or all time and the LOKI series and the characters within really hold a special place in my heart so I may be a little biased. However this book was so good. I’m always so worked up waiting for another book in this series and I’m always nervous I may end up feeling let down but never once have I every actually felt that way with a LOKI book. Autumn knows what she’s doing and this book was no different. Z has come ...more

This series is excellent.
It's best to read the series in order as although each couple have a story per book or per duet or trilogy, the enemy threat often runs for more than just their book and the couples relationships and friendship build through each book.
This is the conclusion to Z and Lilly's story.
The book picks up from the previous one with Z having been taken in by the cops.
The enemy threat is revealed and the situation with Sway is resolved, sort of.
The couples relationship is solid, t

Z and Lilly's newest book is here! I may have done a spectacularly awkward happy dance when I saw it had hit my Kindle.
 In Zero Apologies Autumn Jones Lakes wraps up all the loose ends that have been hanging around since book one, Zero Tolerance. Her books don't leave us with a cliffhanger, (I prefer to call them happy for now endings) but she always gives us a little something extra to think about and the end of Zero Regret is no different.

Received an ARC for a fair and honest review. OMG! What an journey Z and Lilly have been on. This HFN ending gripped me from beginning to end. Loved the banter between Z and Murphy,and the interactions between upstate and downstate.
Love the way Autumn weaves threads through all her books and how they get answered and other stories start. There are so many little side stories that I want to follow and see the journey of both clubs.

This was the conclusion to Z and Lilly's story. It was pretty good overall. I felt the end was a little rushed and i was left somewhat confused about the epilogue. In my opinion this was the weakest out of the three.

Was left wondering where she is going to take us on the next adventure with the lost kings and how Lilly and Z are going to survive the storm that has come upon them. You pulled me in from the first chapter I read if this series and I will be hooked until you decide your not going to write anymore. though I may cry at that point.

***Warning....this book is FIRE!!!*** Z and Lilly are explosive together! Make sure you have a bucket of ice water next to you because you're definitely going to need to cool yourself down after reading those hot scenes. ***fanning myself*** Z is pure dominance and it's sexy as sin.
It was nice to finally see Z get his happily ever after. For such a tough guy he sure is sweet and at times can be vulnerable especially when it comes to his emotions about being away from home. I love his loyalty to

Sizzling hot and passionate conclusion of Z and Lily’s story...or is it?
Hopefully I’ll get to see more of my second favorite couple in future books.
Just like the title says, this installment makes no apologies with the development and conclusion of Z and Lilly’s deeply emotional journey.
Intense, exciting, it begins right after Zero Regrets, and it was full of unexpected twists and surprises. The painful turmoil and uncertain future following them, had me glued to the pages from beginning to end.
