The Lover's Game by J.C. Reed (No Exceptions #2)


3.5/4 Stars


Amy's Review:

Brooke is back and crazier than ever. The Lover's Secret was book one in this No Exceptions series and The Lover's Game followed suit.
At the end of the last book, Brooke was heartbroken. Jett, being the asshat he is, burned her yet again. Deciding it was time to pull up her big girl panties and better herself, Brooke decides it is time to leave Jett in the wind. Pregnant, heartbroken, monetarily broken and alone, Brooke was a freight. Thankfully, Brooke has friends new and old she can turn to during this time. What does any good girl friend suggest when her friend is having man problems?? Going out, girls night, drinking and fun.
Strange events cause Brooke to question her decisions and her sanity through out this book. I loved the way she stood her ground regarding Jett. I believe a hearty wallet and a good smile do not make a man ... Jett needs to go for good!
While I felt The Lover's Game was written well and continued the great character development with these characters. I felt this piece of the story line was not necessary. None of the questions Brooke left Lover's Secret with were answered and that is what I was looking for most. I am hoping the next installment in this series has more insight into Jett and what he is trying to hide.


When love is a game... After having her heart broken, Brooke tries to rebuild her life and closes herself off from the one man she loved deeply. When she meets Grayson, a photographer, she has no idea that her new boss will offer her more than she bargained for. The pay is great, her new friends more than welcoming and everything seems to be running well…until everyone insists she find herself a new suitor during a night out. Jett knows how to play games. He is used to getting attention from everyone except the beautiful dark haired woman who doesn’t like to be fooled with and doesn’t trust him as far as she can spit. He wants Brooke but, more than that, he wants to own her, and the only way to get her is to make her owe him…against her will. And what Jett owns, Jett keeps forever.
