QuickScore-Review: JIMMY by Cat Johnson

Social butterfly and a soldier in the Special Forces—a match made in…bed.

Special Forces gave Jimmy Gordon the undercover skills of a chameleon, but nothing prepared him for Amelia Monroe-Carrington, the governor’s hot, redheaded daughter. She thought she was seducing a banquet waiter, and he let her.

His next assignment pulled him from her bed and into the worst six months of his life. Images of Lia were what kept him alive imprisoned in Kosovo, and even now he’s home and recovered, she’s still in his head.

For her father’s political career, Lia has always done the appropriate thing, right down to dating a senator’s son. Her one rebellious act, an incredible night with a totally inappropriate man, ended when he disappeared. And then never called.

When they unexpectedly meet again, the pull between them is stronger than ever, tempting Lia to stop sacrificing her own happiness for the family dynasty.

Warning: Contains incredible one-night-stand sex hot enough to withstand time, distance, and some really nasty terrorist torture.

First line:
Jimmy Gordon glanced down the length of the table packed nearly shoulder-to-shoulder with the bulk of the men seated there.

Memorable Scenes:
No notes on any memorable scenes, so again I use the disclaimer that either there were none or I just forgot to write them down


JIMMY is another installment in this series that didn’t completely blow me away. Both plot and romance felt rushed and it felt like the main characters skipped a few (emotional) steps. I never really got to know and click with the main characters and I also missed some sort of conflict. Also, the pace was really fast and sometimes it even felt rushed.

Despite my disappointment about the romance and the plot I must say I like Cat Johnson’s writing style. She has a knack for writing yummy men and male camaraderie. Her writing and the banter between Jimmy and his teammates were what made the book an enjoyable read despite my issues with some other elements.
