Breakstherules COVER


Captain Jeremy Phillips believes in doing his duty…both as a son and as a friend. This means that he should obey the “friend code” and stay away from his best friend’s little sister. Too bad Madison O’Shay doesn’t believe in his code and is ready to break all of the rules

As a Navy nurse, Madison is finally stationed next to the man she’s been dreaming about for years. And she’s ready to launch a full-scale attack to show this thoughtful, handsome Marine that they belong together.


My Review:

This is the second book in Jeanette Murray’s Semper Fidelis, Always Faithful Series and I was so excited to read it after LOVING the first in the series, The Officer Says I Do.  I was not disappointed!  In fact, I loved it even more than the first!

Madison has been in love with Jeremy for quite some time now….years in fact.  She has a sneaking suspicion that he may have feelings for her, too. Now, after a delicious but disastrous first kiss, she has concocted a plan to ensure she wins the man she knows she’s meant to be with.  Poor Jeremy doesn’t stand a chance….

Jeremy has it bad…he’s head over heels for Madison.  Who wouldn’t be?  She’s smart, beautiful, spunky, a real spitfire…and his best friend’s little sister.  In other words: off-limits.  After kissing her, he knows he’s gotta walk away.  Only that proves to be a losing battle when Madison sets her sights on showing him exactly why they are meant to be together.  Add trying to please his father in continuing with a career as a Marine, a career he isn’t sure is for him anymore, and Jeremy is just plain tired.  Tired of fighting the losing battle with Madison and tired of being someone he’s not to his father.  Now the question is….what the hell’s a guy to do?

Good Lord…I loved every minute of this book.  The push and pull between Madison and Jeremy was delectable! Madison is an amazing heroine.  She’s strong willed and went for the prize, consequences be damned! She is exactly my kind of gal.  Jeremy broke my heart and was a hero so worth fighting for.  He’s the kind of guy that puts those he loves ahead of himself and always thinks of himself second.  He’s loyal and kind-hearted but doesn’t like to show his soft side to many.  He is a Marine, after all! Together they complete each other in the most perfect way.  I laughed while reading this book, cried while reading this book, got über frustrated with both Jeremy and Madison while reading this book and ultimately finished feeling utterly contented and so very happy.

Plus, we also got to see our fave characters from the first book, Tim and Skye, and found out a teensy bit more about the mysterious Veronica, Skye’s cousin.  I’m also guessing that the next on the series will be featuring Veronica and Dwayne *squeeeeee*

Thank you Jeanette for reminding me how amazing it feels to fall in love with a book.  I’ve SO missed having that “I need to drop all responsibilities and READ” feeling! I’m eagerly awaiting the next book…can’t wait!
