You do have to wonder – what in the world was Clint doing with Ewan all that time? Except as the story progresses, you get an idea of why Clint would be comfortable with Ewan and his baggage. I really liked that Clint was able to open up and see that about himself.
When Clint’s fridge gives up the ghost and ruins the beer, Clint heads to Ewan’s engagement party. He was invited, after all. That right there shows you what Ewan was like. Well, that and the conversation he has with Ewan at the party. Hello, scumbag!
In steps Deputy Mayor Hawk to save the day. You really have to suspend belief a bit here, because the instalove is one thing but moving your life to another place for someone you don’t even know yet is another. I got sort of stuck there, because that part didn’t seem believable to me.
But Hawk is a loyal, determined man who knows what he wants. If he comes across as sort of a stalker, well, there’s that. He wants Clint and he’s going to make sure Clint knows it. I questioned his sanity when, knowing Clint was with the cheating hoe that is Ewan, they decide to go bareback. I mean, come one.
So this is pretty sweet, over the top in areas and honestly I wanted Ewan to have some sort of comeuppance, but that’s a whole different ballgame. Fluffy and Speedy are adorable. The sex is hot and the guys are as well.
Clint is a cop in a small town, just getting back from a camping trip in the woods to get over a bad breakup with a man who insisted they stay hidden. When he gets back, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong and an already terrible day is made worse, by an invitation to said exes wedding… to a woman, just two weeks after they broke up. Which means, he must’ve been seeing her when they were together.
Hawk Black has had his eye on Clint since the second he laid eyes on him. Uprooting his whole life on a glance, he’s been patiently waiting to make his move on Clint; the day he gets back from his camping trip, he gets his chance. Now, I know a lot of people are leery about insta-love, but…. I’m a sucker for it, when it’s believable. I loved these two, especially together.
Hawk is sweet and romantic and he knows what he wants and is intent on getting it. Clint needs a little more convincing but a weekend with Hawk showing him what life could be like if he stopped fighting the inevitable, it didn’t take no time for him to fall for Hawk as well… afterall, he was already insanely attracted to him and had been since he laid eyes on him as well.
The only problem I had with this, was that it wasn’t longer. But, alas, it was a novella, so I knew it wouldn’t be. I loved it though… I need to go back and get the others of this series, I already know I won’t be disappointed.
5 stars from me!

Rating: 4 stars out of 5
I really needed this. Coming off reading a book that left me disappointed, I am in my happy place again with one of my favorite Gay Male Romance authors. Jumping In is a fast, light story with the happy ever after ending that can only put a smile on my face. If you need something to make you feel good and you don’t want it to show up on your hips in a few days, this is your answer. The plot of this story is about Clint Rivera, a small town cop who has returned a day early from a well-needed vacation. Clint ended it with his closeted lover. He left to go camping with his faithful furry companions to get his head back on straight. Upon his return he finds out that his Ex is getting married to a woman, he is getting evicted, and his dogs ate his furniture. If that isn’t enough, every time Deputy Mayor Hawk Black is within view and even when he isn’t, Clint can’t seem to stop fantasizing about him. When Clint shows up at his Ex’s engagement party, Clint gets the shock of his life. Sweet, sexy, loving chemistry is in store for both Clint and the readers of this story. As mentioned this is a short story. I think I finished it in less than an hour, but I read fast. It is also a story that you will not want to put down until the end. Yes, there is a happy ending. One that is sure to put a smile on your face. We do get some background into these characters. For a short story, I felt a connection with these characters.
