"Some boys can get rough, some don't always listen when you tell them to stop, and some boys, they're just monsters. You gotta be careful who you play with..." ~ Jax Declan

I'm a tease, always have been. In my teens, Jax Declan tried to warn me about staying away from the bad boys. The only boy I ever wanted was Jax. But, no matter how much I tried to play with him, he rejected me.
I haven't seen Jax Declan in years. A couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. A little older now, and a bit wiser, I've decided that I'm going to find my teenage crush and I'm going to break him. This summer Jax Declan will play with me.
But the closer I get and the more I learn about the reserved, discreet, and sexy Jax Declan. Well, I'm starting to think that Jax Declan might just be one of those bad boys he tried to warn me about all those years ago.

Warning ~ This book contains explicit sex scenes, graphic language, and is intended for mature audiences.

I absolutely loved this first book in Kelly Gendron’s new series. Jax grabbed me from the beginning and I could not put the book down. I admit losing sleep until I finished and so glad that I did. Definitely the “carrot” leading me along was Jax’s restrained control just percolating beneath his skin anytime he is around Emmie, and anticipating when he would lose all that sexy control with her. I was tickled by all the verbal banter between them with all those sexual innuendos flying all over the place. Definitely, I would vote Jax a winner in a dirty talk contest. Poor Emmie never stood a chance with all that delectable sexual charm and playfulness from Jax. She’s left wondering what life could be like with such a hunk as she’d always crushed on Jax since high school but never had the courage to let him know. And Jax felt the same, but events prevented him realizing those feelings for Emmie. Now Emmie’s back in town for the summer after 6 years away, and both have a second chance to find out what’s behind their attraction. But Jax’s past secret might just ruin his chances with Emmie. Ms. Gendron did an excellent job on a well written story. The story flowed seamlessly with no unnecessary duplicate scenes, and the main characters were likeable. With Emmie’s and Jax’s point of view I felt I was right there in the middle of the story. And the lovin’ was hot! It was a pleasure to read and I was thoroughly entertained. I’m looking forward to Slate’s story in the next book.

Great book. Seemed just a little bit rushed. Only 127 pages on my Nook. But all in all i really enjoyed this book. Im definitely going to be reading the next book in this series.

Short story but flowed very well. I like that it revolves around three friends and three brothers who obviously need these women. Jax has had more responsibility than he should gave with the care of his brothers but his love Em comes back to town and it heats up from there. Looking forward to Slade's story next! This is a new author for me that l will continue to follow.

I am unsure how to comment on this "book". I read it. I liked it. I hated it. It made me laugh, cry, and get ticked off. This is more of a novella. So much potential to be a truly good book. The charachters are gritty but enough detail to get just a sense of the person they are. Makes you want to know more. The storyline is good but too rushed like the author just didn't have the time to put into it. It actually made me mad that there wasn't more. It deserves more. They got their $$ but I sure don't feel like I got my $$'s worth. Do better....BE better. Your stories deserve your best. s.

I would love to thank the author for the opportunity to read this book. We all need a Jax in our life. I am definitely adding Jax to my book boyfriend list. Emmie, Rayna, and Lurlene decide to go back to Bayou for the summer. They have plan breaking the Declan brothers: Jax, Slate, and Zeke. Emmie had always had a thing for Jax. No matter how much she threw herself at him in high school, Emmie thought Jax did not notice. She has plan changing that and breaking Jax Declan. Will he break her or will she break him? Jax who had a dark sexual side had a thing for Emmie Rue since she was 16 years old. Jax being a lot older then Em knew he had to wait until she was at a legal age before perusing her. Unfortunately things did not play out that way when Em turned 18. As Jax had to grow up to fast and life took Em in a different direction away from Jax. It did not stop Jax from longing for Em or Em longing for Jax. This is a great love story and I so enjoyed reading the flirtation between Jax and Emmie. Got to love some a guy who knows his pie..LOL As you read about Jax and Em you start to watch their love grow and blossom. Will they ever be able to tell each other how the other feels? Will Em be able to embrace Jax dark sexual side? I would recommend this book to any one that loves a good love story. I so cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

What a start! To what I know will be an awesome series, if this first book is any indication. Wow! Emmie has had a crush on Jax since she was sixteen but he never gave her a second glance. Since her friends Rayna and Lurlene have decided to go back to the Bayou for the summer, Emmie has been thinking about Jax and how now she will finally have her chance with him. There is lots of sexual innuendo, followed by earth shattering sex, a few tears and some laughs that leaves you feeling like you can't take any more but you do because you are just getting started. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Having never read this author before, I'll admit I was apprehensive, but I took a chance based on the cover. I know... how shallow of me. But I'm so glad I did Jax grabbed me from the beginning of the story and he did not let go. He's everything a girl could want...sweet, sexy and very very bad! Once Ms. Gendron threw in the tattoos and the MMA I was a puddle on the floor. The characters of Jax and Emmie are well defined and told through alternating POV's. The story flowed seamlessly with no unnecessary scenes. I absolutely loved this book! Can not wait for the next installment of the Declan Brothers. I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.

Missed Opportunity & Second Chances -Oh boy, what a start to a new series! Emmie and Rayna along with their friend Lurlene go to the Bayou to spend the summer and each has a goal in mind...Break a Declan. This book focuses mostly on Emmie and the Declan brother she has crushed on for years... Jax the polite older brother. After not seeing each other in years, she learns some interesting things about Jax... I loved the interactions between the characters! Seeing the teasing, the chemistry, learning more about Jax, and how the relationship develops... Jax and Emmie are two very interesting characters and I enjoyed seeing how things came about for them. This is one hot read and I can not wait to see what happens with the next brother. - I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Love second chance romances. Emmie, Rayna and Lurlene decide to spend the summer in the Bayou. For Emmie and Rayna this is a return to their childhood lives and the Declan boys – Jax, Slate and Zeke. Emmie had a huge crush on Jax but he never gave her the time of day. Her goal is to break Jax over the summer. I loved how Kelly Gendron established the three best friends spending the summer together while giving us just the right mix of past/present to help us understand how the Declan boys fit into Emmie and Rayna's world. I also loved the dual POV which gave us a better understanding of who the Declan boys are and what they are dealing with. Excited to read Slate and Zeke's stories.

A great start to a sexy new series. Emmie has been hot for Jax since she was a teenager, now older and wiser she plans to head back to her home town and get what she wants, JAX. The story is excellent, entertaining and dramatic, Jax is hot, and the sex is steamy. I loved it and am looking forward to more from these sexy brothers.

Loved it, of course I love everything by Kelly Gendron. Just like her other books, I couldn't put it down, till until the end. Sexy Jax and savvy Emmie burn up the pages with hot Bayou Love. Throw in some MMA. crazy brother antics, and a strong determined lady for a Hot second chance at love story. Looking forward to the rest of Breaking The Declan Brothers Series to come out.
