Blog Tour & Review: The Exception by Adriana Locke

The Exception
by Adriana Locke

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.
Candi's 5* Review:

Cane Alexander.......HOLLLLYYY SWWOOOOON!!!!! When the book first starts you will say OMG that man is such an azz but in no time at will be falling at his feet!!! I love it when you read a story with an alpha male who is such a pain your butt until he meets that "one" who will make him fall to his knees and do anything in his power to make her happy. I was so hooked from page one it was hard to put this book down until the very end!! Be prepared for your emotions to be all over the place but trust me, you will love every second of it!! Perfect story line, the hot and steamy sex scenes and the suspense of what is going to happen next will have you hooked from the start.

Cane is a player and the one thing he doesn't do is relationships, no way no how...that is until he meets Jada. One look at her and he knows he is ready to make her his exception.

Jada has just gotten out of a marriage that was not what she wanted or expected. The moment she lays eyes on Cane she is definitely attracted to him but once she hears he is "The Chief" at the playing field she knows she needs to stay far far away but Cane won't give up!! Will he be able to break down Jada's wall's and make her his beautiful girl?

I loved Jada's sister Kari and Cane's best friend Max!! I am crossing my fingers that those two will soon get a book of their own!! Max was super sweet and protective of the girls and is totally swoon worthy his self.

I'm also interested in Heather and Brian so I'll cross my fingers that Adriana may explore them some in the future as well!! I'm a sucker for hot band members so..... :)

Amazing job Adriana Locke!! I can't wait to see what you come up with next and I will now add you to my stalker list!!

“I’m on it. I’ll bitch out Franklin for calling you. I was on the phone getting everything figured out when he decided we couldn’t handle this on our own.”
“Let me know if you have any problems. If they don’t show up tomorrow – call me. I’ll be by early in the morning to make sure everything is kosher.” I ended the call before tossing my phone on the passenger’s seat.
I needed to make sure I was there before the guys were in the morning. That’s what Dad would have done. He led by example and that’s why everyone respected him. He kept calm, made rational decisions and didn’t get worked up. Unfortunately for me, my maternal DNA was a little stronger.
“Treat me good, I’ll treat you better. Treat me bad, I’ll treat you worse.”
I saw that in a bar in Newport shortly before my world flipped upside down. I liked the little motto that had been carved into a wooden table and it had stayed with me. It appealed to the side of me that was more like her, the side of me that was a pure hedonist.
My shoulders tensed as I recalled playing with my black and yellow trucks, running them over and over the sand, waiting on her to come home. And the feeling of my hopes go down with the sun behind the palm trees.
Fuck her.
I tossed my sunglasses beside my phone as I glanced at the clock. 7:54 P.M.
I briefly considered turning around and heading back to the restaurant. Traffic was a motherfucker and it would be an hour to get back the other direction, so I continued towards home.
I zipped through the lanes, weaving in and out of the cars, my driving a little erratic – mirroring my thoughts. I had spent less than thirty minutes with the girl at the restaurant and now my mind was focused on her? What the fuck? That is not how I operated.
She told me no. I shook my head, a grin touching my lips.
