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 am such a Cardeno C fan girl. To get the chance to review her books always makes me smile. Jumping In is fast paced, lovingly written, and made me smile and laugh as I read it.  I love the humor in this book. I also liked the small awkward moments in it as well. I like when a book makes you smile as you read it and just feel what the characters are feeling in that moment.
Clint, I love Clint. He is a cop. He just got out of a relationship where he was basically being used for sex only.  When the ex in question invites him to his engagement party, Clint goes cause he needs some beer. After all his day was shitty and he had no beer at home.   The way he could turn a bad situation around and just go for what he wants made me giggle and smile. Clint is a sweetheart.
Hawk Black now he makes Clint nervous. Mostly because he wants the sexy alpha man, but is not ready to admit that yet.  Hawk is a patient man. He has been planning for a long time to make Clint his. Now the he has the chance he will jump in with both feet.
When you want a story that is quick paced, funny, and will make you believe in true love and happy endings this book will do the trick.
