Cockloft: A firefighter term used as a structural space above ceiling and below rafters, often connecting adjacent occupancies and permitting fire to spread laterally, often unseen.

Gabriel Martinez is the most arrogant and infuriating man I’ve ever met. He has a knee-weakening smirk that makes me want to kiss—no—slap it off his rude, sexy face. Judging by his ego, you’d th

I've read a lot of K.C.Lynn's books and most of them were complex, with a very challenging plot. Unfortunately, it was not the case for "Cockloft" and I was very disappointed about it.. For the ones that read "Beautiful Insightful" by the same author, I have to admit, I didn't but the pieces together and realised that the secondary characters were THE Ryder and Emily from the book. It just didn't clicked in my head and I was very amused when realising it, by 98%:)))

So, CeCe and Gabe live very di

They say opposites attract, and boy are they right. Cece and Gabe couldn't have been more different but I needed my own fireman to come out put out the fire this couple started on my kindle. Their attraction just sparked right off the pages and I loved that they had so much chemistry. In all honesty I was nervous that Cece really would be just a stuck up snob, but that wasnt the case. She was definitely a little spoiled but it was never in an annoying way and she

Really enjoyed this! It was hot and completely safe. It was also pretty funny lol. Nice little epilogue at the end as well :)

I've never disliked Lynn's heroine before. But CeCe. Oh, God! She was a mix of

GAH! Cockloft slayed my heart and soul.It's electrifyingly sexy, amusing, hilarious, with a heart. I couldn't put it down, I finished it in an hour and have been rereading since. KC Lynn burned up the pages, knocked me off leaving me picking up the pieces of my ovary and fallopian tube at the same time fixing my jaw and desperately in need of more Gabe and Cece! Be still my beating heart but these two characters just made the hell

So this book started horrible for me. When I say horrible I mean I didn’t know who I wanted to throttle more, hero or heroine. Why? Because here we had two children trapped in an adult body. They were freakin’ childish and it gave me a freakin’ headache.

I really enjoyed this book. I luvd it from the start. Gabe is just so sexy and very gorgeous plus he's a firefighter. How can you not like and luv him and he talks Spanish how sexy is that. The way him and Cece met was so funny. There dislike and banter they had going on was so funny. The attraction was strong from the start even though Gabe had mixed feelings about her. She came from a background he totally hated and could stand. But the spark was t

Review by Lisa Kane

CeCe Kensington wakes in the middle of the night by the fire alarm in her apartment building. Thinking it’s a false alarm just like every other time, she doesn’t leave. But it does seem legit, so she searches for the one thing beside her dog, Pep, which she cherishes. Digging in her closet to find her treasured memento, she’s interrupted by a gorgeous hot firefighter who has no time for her antics. She tries to explain, but he cuts her off.

I laughed so much at the beginning of this book and swooned so hard at the end!

Cockloft was perfect and just what I was looking for to lift my mood and get me out of a reading funk.

“For your information, this is a Vera Wang original that has yet to hit the market. It’s made from vintage silk.” “Yeah? Well, I think little Vera needs to take a trip down to the fucking Wal-Mart and scope out the silk they have there instead of ripping people off.”

5 stars! One of my top favorites!

This is what I needed in my life! A dose of KC Lynn magic and my funk is over! I was sucked in from beginning to end; I couldn't stop laughing and I swooned so hard for Gabe Martinez😍I'm stingy when it comes to giving 5 stars but this book can have them all! I can't wait until KC's next book. Definitely a top favorite book of mine that I will be rereading soon💙

Cockloft is a fun, flirty, smokin' hot, humours read. It's low on angst and high on chemistry. We get sexy as sin firefighter Gabe with a cocky attitude and dirty mouth to match

HELLO HOT ALPHA MALE!! Whew!! This book was hot hot HOOOOT!! As always K.C Lynn DOES NOT disappoint. I love how we even see some characters from other series in here. Like Kayla even if it is just a second she's there. Can't wait to see if she adds on. I love me some firefighters. CeCe reminded me of Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde. And the guy I kept thinking Aaron Rodriguez. I believe that's his first name. The guy from CSI Miami. But more alpha male. Loved it. Pick up your copy today!!

Holy hot tamale!!!! COCKLOFT was so electrifying it set my heart aflame!!! I am already a huge fan of K.C. Lynn's books but when I heard she was penning a sexy opposites attract Rom-Com featuring a hunkalicious Latino firefighter I was on cloud nine!!! And even though this book is a departure from her angstier military romances, I found it UTTERLY and COMPLETELY delightful!

“It’s infuriating. Crazy. And, oh god, it’s the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced.”

“His lips are like gasoline, setting my soul on fire one kiss at a time.”

“The magical bastard. How does one possess such control over another’s body without even touching them? It isn’t right.”

OMG! OMG! KC Lynn has done it again. Just when I thought I was never ever going to get out of my book funk, this little beauty landed on my kindle. And let me tell you, seeing this baby

I've been waiting for CeCe's story since Beautifully Insightful and K.C. DID NOT disappoint.

Not only did I fall in love with CeCe even MORE, but now it expanded after meeting new characters. Particularly with the sexy Spanish speaking Gabe. The chemistry between him and CeCe was muy caliente !!!

I will say one of my favorite parts was being reunited with Emily and Ryder. Oh how I missed them so!!! I also feel like K.C. should get a kind of award for her epilogues. She ALWAYS has the best on

This is my first book by K.C. Lynn and I have to say I loved it and I'm now a fan. I don't know why I have not read a book by her before, I really don't they all sound really good and I have added them all to my tbr list. But back to Cockloft,love that name, I really did love this book and was pulled in from the beginning. I laughed so hard at CeCe at times because she was such a disaster or a basket case but it made you love her all the more. And Gabe lord have mercy Gabe!! Even though he was k ...more

Fun, flirty, and full of humor this book was the perfect summer read.  KC Lynn knocked it out of the park when she took a small detour from her usual  heavily emotional books to write one that touched both the heart and the funny bone.  

This book grabbed my attention from the start and it was a struggle to make myself slow down (though I did read it all in one sitting!) because the storyline was just too good to miss!  It was light and fun with just a little bit of that deeply emotional writing

Gabriel Martinez is a firefighter and on a call he runs into a woman who makes his blood boil hotter than the fire itself. CeCe Kensington thought it was a false alarm, when she realizes it isn't only two things matter to her, saving her dog and a purse. Don't judge, it was the last thing her father gave her before he died. She is everything he hates, rich, pampered, a princess. Or is she?

When they are thrown together at a gathering of mutual friends his disdain causes hurt and she storms off, h

I loved this book from the very first page. The banter between the characters was hilarious and heartfelt. I couldn’t help but love them from the beginning. I loved getting inside of both the main characters heads in the dual POV’s. The storyline is unique and fun; the writing is wonderful and the story flowed seamlessly.

Swoon….that’s all I can say about this book. Gabriel Martinez is freaking swoon worthy. He is cocky, arrogant, and has that smirky-smirk going on that you love to hate or is it
It’s not that I didn’t like this book, it was just too short. I like it when issues between the two main characters take longer to be resolved. And, this one was resolved in just a few pages. I like the hero, Gabe, speaking Spanish. Very romantic!And, I think that CeCe was misunderstood a lot of the time. I didn’t think that she was that snobby bitch that was plagued with that wealthy better than you attitude. She just grew up in that atmosphere. Looking forward to reading more from this author. ...more

4.5 Stars... Opposites attract in this sassy and sexy romance... When you take one fiery boutique owner who enjoys the finer things in life and join her with a cocky firefighter who has known the harder sides of life, and you are bound to see sparks fly... The chemistry is intense, the laughs are often, and the romance is definitely filled with sweet... I loved spending time with these characters and watching them get their HEA... A fun read from start to finish:)

CeCe made me laugh, Gabe cracked me up and I fell in love with his character immediately.

Sooooo I loved Gabe & CeCe as characters and what they stood for..... but this was the 'safe' KC Lynn book. I kept waiting for the plot twist or something 'bad' to happen & when it kind of did, all was resolved with flowers! Haha!! It was also very short! Not sure if 4 stars is too generous due to my love of all things K.C Lynn!!! ...more
