REVIEW: “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.


I’d like to believe that I’m mostly a fairly discerning reader.

And then there are times that I like what I like and I can’t entirely explain why…but I do.

Jumping In is insta-love at it’s finest. It’s alpha males at their alphaest. It’s growling and owning and overbearing. It is reminisent of Kristen Ashley books. Shit, one of the MC’s name is Hawk…HAWK!  You cannot get MORE Kristen-Ashely-esque than that.

And it was EVERYTHING. I loved it. Well…I ate it up at least. And I smiled. And I was satisfied. And what more can you ask for?

Clint…big-hearted small-town cop who gets dumped.

Hawk…dream-man small town deputy mayor who decides to stake his claim on Clint.

The situations, the dialogue, the story are all fairly ridiculous…and they are delicious. Over-the-top…and just right. Hot…(Cardeno C writes some of my favorite sex scenes…) and tugs at your heartstrings.

It was the perfect little read…for me.
