Review: The Exception by Adriana Locke

Sunday, April 5, 2015

Synopsis: There is an exception 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 cannot resist.
As their lives entwine, they realize one thing about rules... There is always an exception.

My Review: I have been seeing this book everywhere and hearing such great things about it. It got to a point in which I put down the book I was actually reading and dove straight into this one. I finished it in five hours and automatically wanted more. I love stories that involve a player who meet a girl who lays them on their ass. Jada was intolerant to BS and I loved that about her.

When this story begins, the heroine, Jada has set her mind on starting over on a clean slate and she's trying to move past her mistakes.She is determined to reach her goals- no interruptions, until she meets Cane. Cane is cocky and funny and sometimes, I admit, very persistent when it comes to trying to get her attention after she shockingly turns him down. Let's be honest, telling a player no is a major wound to the ego because in their mind, it's all 'Hey, I'm man candy, everybody wants me :c'. It's hilarious to see how shocked he is at her disinterest and I couldn't stop myself from grinning throughout the entire encounter. 

This book contained a little bit of everything and thank god for that. It made me laugh and at one point even got me a little teary eyed but that's fine because when Jada and Cane made up, they made it all worth it. I'm glad this book was dual POV because it helped me when making sense of some of the events happening in the book. I loved how sweeet Cane could be with Jada when he let his guard down. I loved how they opened up to each other about their pasts and actually found comfort in it. I just kind of love the build up of their relationship and the fact that it wasn't just their sexual attraction that kept them together.I just kind of really liked them together okay. This book was amazeballs like cakeballs and I highly recommend it.
