Meeting Jett was like lighting a match. Dangerous. Scorching. And better left untouched. In his game, some secrets can be deadly.

Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, is sure of one thing. She has to stay away from the one man who betrayed her. He fooled her once, and she won’t let it happen again. When her loans are settled by the very man who’s a murder suspect, little choice does she have than to confront him and risk falling for him again.

Dangerously sexy and arrogant millionaire Jett Mayfield knows his secrets destroy trust. However, when they serve to protect the woman he loves, he has no intention of risking Brooke’s life. When Brooke seeks him to get an explanation, little does he know that there’s something worse that threatens to destroy their lives. Soon there’s only one choice: break or get broken. When everything is spiraling out of control, will his promise keep her by his side…or will he lose her forever?

A man who will never forget her
A woman who can’t trust him
Both are on the run
2 Lives. 2 Destinies.
One Promise

Perfect blend of good and bad. I absolutely LOVE J.C. Reed's writing! While reading the lover's promise, I laughed, cried. I could hardly read fast enough.

I bought this book on a whim yesterday. HOLY MOTHER OF ALL ALPHA MALES! The chemistry between Jett and Brooke was crazy, intense, hot. Definitly one of my all time favorites.

All Brooke did throughout this whole book was doubt Jett, got old after awhile. Plus have to wait until Spring to find out what's going on. Why can't we get a complete novel anymore? I'd gladly pay more money to get the whole story.

This is a MUST read series! It all began with the Surrender Your Love series. There were three books in all. Then came this series, No Exceptions, this is the third book in it. It is wise to read them in order! All of these books have intense chemistry, a bad boy and good girl, secrets, agendas, lies, romance, possessiveness, jealousy, lots of danger and action, mystery and did I mention the sizzling sexy moments? In the No Exceptions series, this has been by far the best book to date. It explained so much! Yet also left us with more questions. J.C. is masterful at mixing my emotions, keeping me dangling and rapt with attention all at the same time. I simply can NOT ever seem to get enough of her writing. The suspense of the overall series plot kicked up tenfold in this book. It has my head spinning with the possibilities of what is happening and what will happen next! Then you add in Jett's sex appeal and Alpha tendencies and oh momma! I am telling you they can just look at each other and my temperature soars. The way he talks to her and their intense couplings. I am waiting to self combust, it is so hot. I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. I loved it. J.C. has a wonderful ability to do what most others don't. She perfectly blends the action, romance, danger, suspense, intense chemistry between the characters, and sexy parts. One is not more predominant than the other and I love it! She gives her books and us, her all.

I just finished reading The Lover’s Promise. It is the third book written in the No Exceptions series written by J.C. Reed. Brooke is convinced that Jett never cared for her at all. She believes that all he wanted to do was use her for sex and toss her aside like the rest. Can she discover the truth before it’s too late? Can she let him go without her world shattering? Then she finds out he could be a murder suspect in two separate murder cases. Jett knows he’s kept too many secrets, but it’s for the greater good. Can he convince Brooke that he really loves her or has he lost her for good? I really enjoyed this book. It was intense. It was thought provoking. It was emotionally wrenching. What more could an avid book lover ask for? The only problem I had is a problem I set up for myself. This is the only book I’ve read in the series. Luckily though, I found that it can kind of be read as a stand-alone. I’d recommend reading them all in order though. I plan to re-read this book after I’ve read the first two. Other than that, I really enjoyed this. I must put in this review that this book does have some mature languages. I do not recommend it to people who shy away from excessive cursing. I’m one of those people who don’t really mind it. Sometimes it adds a little color and personality to the book. Other than that, I don’t really see anything wrong with this book. It was well written and well thought out. It was very thought provoking.  I do fully recommend this book. Not many books have fully gotten me on the edge like this book did. It was amazing how well the author wrote this book. If the reader can handle a bit of excessive cursing now and then, this is a perfect book (and series) for them to get into. I’m glad that I had the opportunity to read this book. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series by this author. I plan to read her entire book collection actually, not just this series.

Not the best of the series?

Can you ever forgive a betrayal? In the continuation of Brooke and Jett's story we are once again thrown for a loop by the dangerous consequences of Jett's life. Has he gone too far this time though? I can't get enough of these two and finding out more about Jett's life and seeing where Brooke takes hers was one heck of a ride. I didn't think things could get any better or worse with these two, but boy was I wrong. I was not happy that they were separated, but I did enjoy seeing them grow as a couple and learn to trust one another more. They both still have a long way to go when learning how to be in a relationship and to trust others, but their makeups was definitely worth it. Fans of Brooke and Jett will not want to miss out on this latest development on their journey to love.

4 stars Where does Brooke turn?  Who can she believe?  She loves Jett but seeing him with his ex lover is just too much.  Then to find out that he is the prime suspect in a murder.  She is after the truth no matter the cost.  Brooke must learn the truth.  And there is only one place to find that.  Jett. Jett has been doing what he thinks is best to protect Brooke.  So what if he did not tell her that his brother was out of jail and that he had gone to visit.  And the kiss with Tiffany was a mistake but Brooke did not let him explain.  But Jett has his reasons for everything that he does.  Brooke will have to learn to trust him without know. Once Brooke finds Jett, things escalate.  She does not want to love him.  She does not want to have a man own her the way Jett does.  But there is no doubt, Jett owned Brooke, heart, body and soul.   Jett does finally tell some of the truth but what about the rest of the secrets that he is keeping? Can he not be completely honest with Brooke?  Is he really a killer?   These are all things that Brooke and Jett will have to sort out.  I think the truth is going to shock us all when it finally is told.  I am ready for the next book.  I need answers.

OMG! OMG!! I need the next book NOW!!!  I’ve been following Brooke and Jett’s story from the beginning and it’s been a crazy ride! J.C. Reed has incredible talent for mixing steamy romance with mystery and intrigue. I thought I had some of the answers figured out and holy hell was I wrong!!  Brooke and Jett are such complex characters. My emotions towards them twist and turn as much as the story. Sometimes I want to scream at Brooke and smack her upside the head. Other times, I feel her heart ache and I understand what’s behind her actions. Jett is certainly not above these reactions either. If he would be open and honest with Brooke, they would avoid so much of their pain. And yet, it is his mysteriousness and sexy confidence that draw you in and make you envious of Brooke for having his love and attraction.  The story is a rollercoaster and will keep you guessing. J.C. Reed creates a web of action and secrecy and passion. As usual, Brooke and Jett have a passion that burns up the pages of the book and practically singes the reader. There is so much of me that can’t wait to see Brooke and Jett get their happy ending, but at the same time, I know it will mean saying goodbye. Both the Surrender Your Love series and the No Exceptions series are on my re-read list, which means they are a resounding 5 stars! J.C. Reed is a 1-click author for me and I’m waiting desperately to press that button on the rest of Brooke and Jett’s story!

Twists and turns: THE LOVER’S PROMISE is the third installment in JC Reed’s adult, contemporary No Exceptions erotic romance series focusing on Brooke Stewart and Jett Mayfield. Their continuing story finds the lovers at odds with one another when Brooke witnesses Jett in a compromising position with another woman.  The storyline follows Brooke’s intense and dramatic search for the truth. When a detective calls Brooke in for questioning regarding the murder of a friend, all fingers point to Jett and Brooke is willing to believe everything she sees and hears. Her anger pushes away everything she knows about the man that she loves replacing it with doubt, accusations and astonishing disbelief. The relationship between Brooke and Jett continues to be tense, alarming and full of anguish and doubt. There are moments of heartbreak and pain for two people who love one another beyond words but whose trust has been damaged by words and betrayal. JC Reed pulls the reader into a dramatic tale of twists and turns; emotional pain and destructive doubt. The storyline is suspenseful and thrilling; tragic and intense; will break you heart and destroy any illusions about a happily ever after.  Can the man that Brooke loves be capable of everything she believes to be true or is somebody setting them up for an epic spiral out of control? THE LOVER’S PROMISE is not the final storyline-there is still more story to tell.
