The Only Exception: Broken by A.L. Davis

The Only Exception: BrokenThe Only Exception: Broken by A.L. Davis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Who is A L Davis? Well, A L Davis is the author of this superb book. Its a detailed book that will make you stand in awe part way through with the exceptional story. I've not read such a brilliant all rounded story like this for a bit, one that is not like any others lately that have become 'fashionable' to write.

This one has depth, it makes you think, it makes you worry about Ellie that's for sure!

Ellie looses her fiancé in one freak accident. The last time she had heard her Fathers voice was when he left a message on her phone. She was too busy to answer at the time. She has lost him too in the line of duty. Two deaths, two men she loved. Her heart broken.

But she wants answers. Digging deep and asking questions in a new town she has moved to, is she asking the wrong people?

Jack is called in to keep a watch on her, she may be in danger.

Jack is armed, he has been trained. He knows what is what.

But trying to protect Ellie, is not an easy thing to do.

When feelings come into play, does judgement cause error, will error cause misjudgment?


This is what I would deem a "turn the page" kind of read, one after the other, because its hard to leave this book alone once you are way deep up to your neck in it.

I am so glad I joined the blog tour for this fab book.




“Everyone I’ve ever loved has been taken from me and I can’t take the heartache anymore. It’s time to build that wall around my heart and let no one in, no exceptions.” 
Ellie never did know her mother; before she turned twenty she lost her father in the line of duty; a freak accident stole her fiancĂ© from her before they had a chance to start their life together. She wants answers, but now that she’s living in a new town and trying to start over, she’s finding that it’s not that easy. Maybe new surroundings are what she needs to make it easier to move on and forget all about her old life. It could have been…until he showed up. 
“Having the sort of job that is as dangerous as what I do doesn’t allow for a personal life, no exceptions.” 
Jack and his team of military misfits have seen their fair share of war zones and violent criminals. Skilled in precision rescue operations, they’ve traveled into some of the most terrifying countries and stood up to intimidating adversaries, but when a mentor of Jack’s calls them in for a favor that he is unable to turn down, he finds himself up against his most challenging fear of all…his heart. There is a fine line between getting close enough to do your job and getting so close that you get attached. That line used to be obvious, but now that he’s met her, things have blurred and priorities have shifted. Can he keep his feelings in check and still protect Ellie from an adversary more dangerous and twisted than she could ever imagine?
