ARC Review: COCKED AND LOADED by Jordan Marie

August 29, 2018

Cocked and Loaded by Jordan Marie
When I slap the handcuffs on her
I’ll be taking her to bed, not jail.

Getting involved with the wrong woman can destroy your life.
I had to move back home and lose my position as Detective to get away from one.
The last thing I need is to repeat my mistake.
I finally have what I want.
Deputy in my home town, surrounded by family and friends—
Life is good.

Then she crashes—literally crashes—into my world.

Adelle Harrington is a pain in my ass.
She’s way too high maintenance for my tastes.
She’s sassy, opinionated, and stubborn as hell.
She’s also the Mayor’s only daughter.
Which means she should be completely off limits.
When she forces my hand and breaks the law, all bets are off.
She picked the wrong cop to tangle with.
I’ve got her in my sites, she’s not getting away
And I’m definitely not shooting blanks.



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I haven't read any of the other books in the Lucas Brothers series, but after reading about Black and his brothers and their mother, Ida Sue, I'm definitely going back for more. Black had been burned badly by a past relationship and the negativity of that bled into the new life he was trying to build when he moved back home. He went from detective to deputy because of a vindictive ex, his credit was shot, and he would never trust another woman again. The joke was on him because between a bee and a lawnmower, his life would never be the same. He didn't anticipate someone like Addie crashing into his life creating chaos and showing him what love really was.

The characters were fun, especially Black's mom. That lady was a hoot! Addie was a bit over-the-top and too immature at times, but overall she was almost as likeable as Black was. This story was funny and it was sexy and it definitely made me want more of the Lucas family.

Release: 08.30.2018 | Genre: RomCom | Heat: 3.5 | Dual POV - 1st person | Standalone - Lucas Brothers #4
