There are exceptions to every rule... Jada Stanley is starting over--freeing herself from her past and all her mistakes. Following the rules she's given herself is easy enough, until she meets HIM. He's gorgeous, cocky, and everything she needs to avoid, but that's easier said than done. Cane Alexander has his own set of rules, a plan to keep his life simple and free of complications. But Jada is a temptation he can't resist. As their lives entwine, they realize one thing about rules... There is always an exception.

My Review: 

I won a free copy of The Exception through a giveaway hosted by Adriana Locke. I never win anything so needless to say I was really excited I won!

Jada is our main character who just got out of an ugly marriage and is starting over in Arizona. She moves in with her sister Kari until she can back on her feet.

“Fake it till you make it.”

Jada was always belittled by her ex husband. He was and continues to tell her she needs him to succeed in life. She is determine to everything by herself. She wants to focus on herself, learn to love herself again without a man. At this point, Jada doesn’t want a man in her life it would complicate just about everything she trying to accomplish.

Then we meet Cane Alexander who is Max’s (Kari’s friend with benefits) friend at dinner. Of course, he is HOT and as close to perfection as they come. Every women wants him and he can have whatever women he wants except Jada. She is doesn’t care about his wicked smile, muscular body or his charm. Talk about a bruised ego for Cane.

Cane doesn’t understand how Jada doesn’t want him so begins the conquest. He is hot and cold and it was frustrating. You see Cane turn from playboy to a one woman man slowly making his way into Jada’s heart. He slowly realizes that every rule he was ever made when it comes to women he’s broken because Jada is his exception.

It wasn’t all about the romance, there was more to the story then that. It was action packed and intense. The ending had me on the edge of my seat but boy was it worth it.
