Alex Gentry doesn’t scare easily. Working as an undercover FBI agent in the biker bar he and his brothers co-own, he hangs with deadly criminals in order to gather information. Danger is just part of the family business. But one thing has him terrified: his attraction to Madison Parker.
Madison is the cousin of Ramon Alonzo, son and second in command to a notorious drug lord Alex is trying to bust. Alex has befriended Ramon as part of his cover, and Madison has unknowingly become his informant. Falling for her could risk this case—and both their lives.
All Madison wants is to get her new bookstore business off the ground, and for her creepy cousin Ramon—to whom she’s unfortunately indebted—to leave her alone. If she could only stop fantasizing about his mysterious new friend, Alex…
As the Alonzo cartel investigation heats up, so does their relationship. But will the secrets they’re keeping tear them apart—or get them both killed?
So, Jack of Hearts started off stumbling out of the gate for me. First, everyone’s nickname was ________ man. Heart man, Spooky man, etc. It was so unoriginal that it made me cringe. Then, it felt as if I missed a previous book. Like, who are these people? Who is this girl and her ‘cousin’ and why is our hero even involved in their drama? It was as if there was a previous book; Alas, this is book 1 in the series. So, my next thought was maybe its a spin off? Nope. Is there a prequel novella? Not that I could find. Needless to say, I was already feeling like passing this book on by.
So, thats what I did. I put the book down, marked it as DNF. I might consider this one again in the future, but for now, I am not feeling it.
