A new sexy contemporary romance novel from New York Times Bestselling Author J.C. Reed.

It was supposed to be a game - my first one-night stand.
He offered one night and left me a key card.
I accepted his invitation and did what I was told.
We met at the most expensive hotel. He was there. Rich, and spoiled. Arrogant and sexy as hell.
He didn't tell me his name, but I know him. His name is Jett Mayfield. He's the man I'm in love with. When I accepted his offer, I had no idea what one night with him would bring.

Jett Mayfield has many secrets. Secrets he should have told the woman he tries to get to surrender. Secrets she should have known before he introduced her to the game. The night he hooks up with her, he aims to please her, but more than that, he aims to capture her heart. Their encounter goes according to plan, but that one night changes everything. Suddenly, everything they knew is called into question. Suddenly, keeping secrets don't feel so good anymore.

Full length novel. 250pp. This book contains adult themes. 18+ 
The Lover's Secret is book 1 in the No Exceptions series. Book 2, The Lover's Game, will be released September 9th, 2014.

Wow. Talk about hair pulling, edge of your seat, amazing. My heart is still racing at the thought of what Brooke goes through. I love how you live through it as if you're right there as the story unfolds. it's as intense as it can get. Right from the beginning, it starts off hot and sexy. A few chapters in, and there are secrets, passion, and trust issues to be worked on. This was my first book by the author, but it won't be my last. It won't. I'm more than eager to see how it goes.

J.C Reed really has a way with words. I rarely write reviews, but when I do, it's because I'm impressed. And THE LOVER'S SECRET had me more than impressed. I was gutted. I was -lost for words. I was daydreaming about what Jett and Brooke had. I was even daydreaming to the point I was wishing I was Brooke, not only because she is a wonderful, funny and down-to-earth person but also because Jett is sexy, caring---a bad boy, who knows what he wants and has no problem saying it. HOLY DANG, all the things that come out of his mouth are nothing short of panty dropping. I love how they get it on. And when it starts, it really gets going. *fans herself* I love the hotel scene!!!! With all this hotness, there was no way for me to stop. I would have given extra stars for this!

WHERE ARE MY SOCKS? Where are my socks? I can't find them, because this book blew them right off! Just when I thought it couldn't get any better I come up with something else that just blew my mind. I loved everything about this book. There are no words to describe it, except...oh my god, oh my god, this book was delicious. I have been salivating ever since I read about Jett. What I wouldn’t give for a hot, hot southern bad boy...The interaction between Jett and Brooke, the passion and the steamy scenes were amazing. I know I should be calm and rational, but I can't. Not with this book. Not with what happened. Not with that ending. My head is still spinning. I had high expectations of this book and I had no idea that I would fall for this book.

Thanks for the ARC. This book is what I would call an extremely sexy, entertaining read! Intense, dark, and riveting, the Lover's Secret prepares you for an emotional avalanche that will leave you reeling! I have always enjoyed Reed's books, but this one is so very well executed, it took me a good day to put my thoughts into words. Every aspect of this story was engaging, but more than that it can get under your skin. A tip: clear your schedules before beginning this book. You won't be able to put it down.

Reed is an amazing writer. I could not put the books down no matter how hard I tried. As you're reading, you'll be on the edge of your seat the whole way! Who are the good guys and who are the bad guys? Sometimes the lines blur.

If only men like Jett actually existed, I would swap my husband with him ;-) This is a great read that will invite you to dream and will linger on your mind for a long time.

Read the first three books and now with this series I'm speechless, I cried at the end of this book, just to think about how someone like brooke can go thru all of this and the fact that I want to fu@#$*g kill jett mayfield for what he is doing right now... I can't wait for the next book to come out and see how all of this will end... Amazing book and an amazing author!!!

Wow, where do I even begin with the series? This novel has been all dramatic, and yet is so addictive. I don't think I ever saw certain things/twists/the ending coming. Like I said before, Jessica has become one of favorite authors and any true fan of the surrender your love series can tell you these characters are seriously amazing.They feel like old friends now, so after I read the lover's secret, it's like reuniting with them all over again This book is worth your time! READ IT. It will touch your heart, your mind and soul.

If you're new to this series, then hang on for a heart pounding author who knows how to get the blood pumping. Hot, sexy, and hell of steamy. I can't wait to read the next book.

There is so much happening in this book. I read the surrender series a while back but I remember that I enjoyed it. Then I heard about the lover's secret and I had to get this book. I was not disappointed. So well written and engaging on many levels. Set in New York, the heroine faces challenges in her relationship with a dominate, alpha man. In wonderfully rich detail, the mystery is well drawn. It's a real treat. Would recommend.

The Lover's Secret by J.C. Reed The No Exceptions Series Book 1 5 Amazing Stars!!! OMG!!! J.C. Reed did it again...Another Great book!!! I have been waiting for the continuance of Brooke and Jett's story and let me just say that it was WELL worth the wait. I have been longing for my Brooke and Jett fix. Reading the Surrender Your Love trilogy left me like a drug addict waiting for the next fix.  J.C. Reed is a wonderful author that will take you on a lot of twist and turns through her books, but will make the journey so worth it. I can't say enough about this talented writer. I just love her style... I would suggest reading the Surrender Your Love Trilogy first, but it's not a must, it's just I think that it is a great read. J.C. Reed works it out so well in this book, that you will know what is going on.  Brooke and Jett have such a great chemistry together and their story has so much romance, love, mystery and action packed into these books. The story will take you on one hell of a ride and leave you longing for the sexy, hot, dirty talking, millionaire Jett. The Lover's Secret Did Not Disappoint...I loved the whole story and could not put my e-reader down until I finished it.  Although it left me again wanting more, more, more...I guess that is just the book addict in me and the fact that the story is so freaking good. I can't wait for book 2 and to see where this journey takes me. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from  J.C. Reed for my honest opinion. J.C. Reed is still taking me on a roller coaster ride with Brooke and Jett's story and I am LOVING every minute of it. This is a must read and I would say Surrender Your Love Trilogy is a must also. I promise you that you will be kicking yourself for not reading them all sooner.
