Beverly Hills Police Detective Devin Jones has a problem – no, it’s not the dead body that turned up on the lawn of a washed up drunk Hollywood legend, and it’s not even that she’s been having an affair with the biggest actresses in the world who’s now marrying her male co-star, it’s that Devin has been set up on a blind date to the glamorous Hollywood Screen Awards - and ...more

Wow! My first time reading this author and i was truly impress -- good writing and editing,lots of action,very intense,well developed characters,good plot twists and also an interesting storyline. Recommended read!

Wow, this one had it all. Humor, action, thrills, suspense, romance, did I mention humor? Oh, and a few scenes of graphic sex here and there.

Keeping the lesbian and gay part (Devin's best friend is a gay man), this would make one great movie. Removing that part and this still would make a great film, though it would lose a little something if it did do that, strip that part out - the LGBT part.

So, this really was a female Die Hard; a lesbian Die Hard. A cop in a terrorist situation, in a buildin

Wow, wow, wow! Devin Jones is the fucking boss... in a Prada dress and high heels! Unreal, but very entertaining.

Really good action packed story. This is definitely an action story. A police kind of narrative. Very fast paced. There is some romance,unbelievably even some sex. It's smart, funny and very well written. I read in one sitting because I couldn't bring myself to stop! Different from most other books out there! Devin is bad ass! Loved it! ...more

Impressive! Couldn't stop reading and I didn't even know the book was coming to an end until the last few pages. The plot is really clever.
Wow! This is the author's first book, looking forward to her next already.
Please make this a series. :)

Okay, I've rooted for the wrong couple although I already know they're not going to end up together but I just can't help it. They have so much history, maybe that's why I've connected with them more and they also have more scenes together.

Surprisingly Fun Action Packed Read 4.5stars

Can I start by saying I love kindle Unlimited. Allows me to give books and author's a chance I probably wouldn't. That being said, this book was fun to read. Suspend reality a bit and just enjoy this rollercoaster ride of Diehard mixed with another movie I can't think of right now. Devin Jones is a badass cop who finds herself in a situation with a crazy man and about 25 hostage celebrities. Now, not everything is fully answered and the ending is a bit

For better or worse most of the humor, not all but most, leaked out of this story when you do a reread. Still a fun book, but it's one of those books that are better experienced fresh. ...more

If an action packed blockbuster movie staring a lesbian character were ever made, this could be the book it was based on.
"This is Devin Jones" has all the traits  an action movie usually has, the good and the bad.
Starting with its premise, a cop that gets accidentally caught in the middle of a hostage situation and needs to take down the big group of kidnappers on her own (which makes one automatically reminiscent of "Die Hard") and save more than 30 movie superstars, while the security forces o

This is a quirky story that was recommended to me by a quirky GR friend. It takes place during a Hollywood awards show (a la Oscars), where a bunch of A-listers are held hostage by some bad guys. If it sounds like a made-for-TV movie, that's because it's written by a TV screenwriter. But it's actually a lot of fun. Our intrepid heroine is a police detective who is recovering from bad relationships and bad police partners, all of whom end up involved in the proceedings. There are a few lucky brea ...more

This has many parallels with Die Hard, the plot centering on a hostage scenario where an out-of-jurisdiction cop must take out the bad guys and save the day. There's even an exploding rooftop.

Here, however, the setting is a Hollywood awards ceremony and the hostages are world-famous actors, one of whom is the drop dead gorgeous ex of our hero - our hero being a super-hot cop in designer dress and heels, as capable with her gun as with her kick-ass self-defence.

Which is all perhaps a little clich

Enjoyed this book.

This was a great book. It does push just to the limit of believable. But you have a beautiful, smart, resourceful heroine. So what else do you need.

Amazon probably recommended it because I’ve read 10 books (so far) by Skye Knizley. I typically avoid books where the viewpoint switches often like in this book. Still, something intrigued me about this book. Since it was on Kindle Unlimited, I downloaded a copy of Devin Jones and eventually got around to reading it. I enjoyed the characters, the writing style and the fast pace of the narrative. If you like this book, check out the Shadlowland books by Knizley or her urban fantasy series The Sto ...more

While I liked the premise, it was just not a believable story.
A model turned cop gets a date to a Hollywood award show, where -out of revenge- a big attack on the stars is orchistrated.
Too many coincidences, too many handy finds, and one sex scene in the middle of the trying to rescue everybody operation, because the ex is really too hard to resist.
Well written, and a page turner but overall it's just too. But fans of McGyver and the A team, who also like hot lesbians, will love this story.

Read this because from the sample I downloaded, while it was obviously gonna be light stuff, it seemed like it had good characters, and believable and often funny/clever dialogue.

Once things get going though its 'lightness' truly shines through. The plot and action are both paper thin, with our lead doing things like happening to stumble onto the bad guys secret escape hatch, and descriptions of action like: Devin skillfully shot the man twice.

Wow! Action packed from beginning to end, I think this is one of the best books I've read this year (yes, I've like a few but his is one of the top ones) I really think the readers will enjoy this very much. I usually comment on the characters and what I liked or thing could have been a bit different/better in my opinion but honestly, on this one ... I think it's best if the reader just read it for them selfs and enjoy it as much as I did. ...more

Loved it!

This novel was so entertaining that I just couldn't stop reading. I loved everything about it, although, I would've liked to know what happened to good ol' Lori, and what was Bennet's plan in the end. I was expecting him to try and ruin Devin's exit.
Is there a sequel? Because that would be amazing!

Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. Laughing one moment and holding my breath the next, I cheered Devin Jones on as she struggled to save the day. Whew!

This book was so great, so funny and so fun to read. I felt like I was watching a fast paced action Movie but with fun lesbian character. I wish there was a second part so I could see more of Devin’s and Caitlin’s Relationship. Loved it

Great action

Everything I wanted in a book. Wonderful story. Lovely characters. This was a feel good book. Devin Jones needs her own series.

She kicked in alot of doors. A LOT of doors.
Except one door, but someone helped. Oops I meant to say spoilers.

Fun book by the way.

This was an interesting story. Not too far for an all time favorite action movie in book form. It's about time to see a female lead in a full action thrilling story.

This was a great read! I liked Devin from the get go and was on the edge of my seat has i read about her saving the day! Through the entire book I was rooting for a reunion with Everett and Devin and was disappointed with their ending. Saying that I would love to read a sequel to this book.
