Re-belle-ious, free-spirited Lauren Renwick has decided it’s time to trade her wings for roots. That means no more bad boys, no more foolish choices. Yet when she’s stood up on New Year’s Eve, her resolution to stick to her Mama’s Rules for Dating weakens. Especially when she spots sex-in-leather-and-tattoos, Jackson Sullivan.
One look at Lauren, and Jackson is hell-bent on getting her on the back of his Harley and riding straight for his bed. Their night together is an erotic rush that has a new word popping up on his horizon—forever.
Lauren tries to convince herself he’s just one last fling to get bad boys out of her system, yet she finds herself falling hard and fast for a man with a stalker ex and a meddling Irish family. Plus, he has zero chance of passing her uptight parents’ inspection.
Jackson has Lauren’s back, but if she wants all of his heart, she’ll have to meet him halfway—by ditching rules that hold her prisoner, and learning to stand up for what she really wants.
Warning: Contains several highly practical rules for dating—all of which will be broken in the most wicked ways possible, thanks to a domineering alpha male who knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to go after it...rules be damned.
Lauren is upset about her New Year’s Eve plans – to say the least. She’s been dating a guy named Keith for about 6 months and right before he was supposed to pick her up for NYE and then a weekend away he calls to say he’s getting back together with his ex. Ok, not a great way to start the new year. She wasn’t too into Keith but it’s still a bummer that she has to spend NYE alone.
Lauren drives around because she wants a drink and all of her friends are out having fun with their dates. She ends up at a biker type bar called Sully’s and ends up meeting the owner of the bar, Jackson Sullivan.
Now Jackson is a bit Alpha. He knows what he wants and he’s not afraid to go after it. He decides he wants Lauren which would be great for her except she’s trying to follow her Mama’s rules and settle down with a nice guy – not a tattooed hottie that would send her mother into fits. She gives in to Jackson almost immediately they spend the night together and soon they’re off at the beach having a weekend together. It happened fast – speed of light fast – but Lauren finds that even though Jackson isn’t what she was looking for he may just be what she needs.
Rule Breaker is sweet sexy read. Jackson is definitely a guy who isn’t afraid to say what’s on his mind. You could tell that he truly cared for Lauren throughout the story even though we didn’t get all that much of their story. The book is told in segments – the first meeting and weekend then 4 weeks later then 4 weeks later and then an epilogue. It was a little disconcerting because we didn’t get too deeply into Jax and Lauren’s relationship but what we did get was quite good. I loved the way Jackson stood up for Lauren against everyone – even her parents.
Lauren was strong enough to handle Jackson but I she definitely had some self-confidence issues. Jax helped her with those as well and made others see how great she was as well. I was quite happy when she decided to not follow her Mama’s rules as it was much more fun to be the rebel. 🙂
Overall a good story that I really enjoyed. This is Kincaid’s first book and I look forward to reading others from her in the future.
