“Some guys call, some date, and some guys, they might even get married. But, sweetheart, I ain’t any of those guys...” ~ Zeke Declan
Every girl in Galveston County knows about Zeke Declan’s rules and has agreed to them or is considering them.
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.
When a couple friends talk me into going back to their hometown in the Bayou for the summer and challenge me to break “the best damn lay in Galveston County” along with every single one of his ridiculous rules, I’m confident that I can get the job done. I’m no stranger to men. I have five older brothers. I’m a teacher and I’m used to being around rebellious teenagers. However, Zeke Declan is definitely not someone that I could have prepared for. He’s not a testosterone-fueled, immature boy. He’s a confident, arousing, playful, and mind-melting man. But, behind that sexy charming smile, I know he’s hiding a secret. And, in order to break him, I’m going to need to find out what it is...

“Zeke” is the story of Zeke Declan, the youngest of the three brothers. He co-owns the bar with his brother Jax and is also an amateur/hobby MMA-Fighter in their unofficial cage in the back of the bar. When he meets Lurene, the best friend of his brother’s long lost girlfriend, he doesn’t know that she has set her mind on breaking all of his carefully constructed rules in order to break ‘her’ assigned Declan brother. Will they have a happy end even despite all of both of their secrets?
This was the second book I read in this series. I loved Jax’s story and was very curious to see Zeke’s. However, I almost abandoned the book at approx. 30%, because the chemistry between the two MC’s at the beginning was explosive but the conversation suddenly turned very dragging and stilted. I felt almost uncomfortable reading about their attraction to each other. But I kept going and it suddenly went back to good again and I loved the remaining part of the book. The writing was as great as in “Jax” and the characters were nice.
Ultimately, it’s a cute, short romance with a bit of angst and steam and a big dose of insta-love. Though each book can be read as a standalone, I’d highly recommend reading them in order.
All in all, I rate “Zeke” with 4 stars and can recommend this series.
