Jumping In by Cardeno C.


When love’s on the line, the brave jump in with both feet…

Small town cop Clint Rivera can’t catch a break. His ex of two weeks is suddenly getting married, his dogs tore up his furniture, he’s getting evicted, and he’s out of beer. When he decides to solve his alcohol shortage by going to his ex’s engagement party, Clint winds up too drunk to drive himself home.

Enter gorgeous deputy mayor Hawk Black, the man who constantly shows up unexpectedly and sends Clint’s body and mind into a tailspin with nothing but his whiskey voice and blue eyes. After months of patience, Hawk can finally seduce the man he’s been craving.

Clint’s day might not have started out well, but Hawk’s going to make sure it ends with a bang, preferably in bed. He’ll show Clint some rewards are worth the risk. With love on the line, Clint will need to decide if he can open his heart, tear down his shields, and jump in with both feet.

If you are looking for a M/M book that is short and sweet and an easy read this is the book for you. It goes by so fast that when you get to the end of the book you want more. I know that it says that it is an Alpha book, meaning that one of the characters is more aggressive and a bit rough, but I didn't get that at all from this book. 

When you first start the book you really feel for Clint. He is having the bad day to end all bad days. He comes back from a camping trip to an invitation to his Ex's engagement party, he is being evicted, and his dogs have pretty much ruined his living room, including eating the cord on his TV. He knocks over his refrigerator and dumps out all of his beer, so he decides to show up to the engagement party, figuring what the heck, it is free beer. Needless to say, when he gets there, he finds out that they are not serving beer adding to the enjoyment of the day.
In comes Hawk. Just like his name, he flies in to rescue Clint. I believe he is the Alpha in this book because he knows what he wants and will pretty much do whatever he needs to get the man he wants. This is where the part where I hate novella's happens. I believe that the story was kinda rushed to the happy ending. Hawk was so in love with Clint, yet Clint did not even know that he was interested in him or that he was even gay. I truly believe that this could be a great full length book. However, like I said it is worth reading and you will love it!!

Cardeno C. - CC to friends - is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few "awwws" into a reader's day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno's stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.

Heartwarming Stories. Strong Relationships. Forever Love.
