I haven't read any of the other books in the Lucas Brothers series, but after reading about Black and his brothers and their mother, Ida Sue, I'm definitely going back for more. Black had been burned badly by a past relationship and the negativity of that bled into the new life he was trying to build when he moved back home. He went from detective to deputy because of a vindictive ex, his credit was shot, and he would never trust another woman again. The joke was on him because between a bee and ...more

When I started reading Cocked and Loaded it was the first book by Jordan Marie that I had ever had the pleasure of reading. I was prepared for the romance, but was happily surprised by the humour. 

The Lucas' are a big, unique, family oriented bunch headed by Ida Sue, the quirky, undeniably eccentric matriarch.

Black is a deputy in his brother-in-law, the sheriffs office after leaving Dallas and his seriously crazy ex and moving back into the family home.

Addie is the Mayor's daughter who unintenti

DNF at around 40% ? Could not stand the "heroine", this book tries to be hijinks-y with a harpy h. Honestly, the H was better off finding someone else.

Black Lucas is back in his home town of Mason after his previous girlfriend destroyed his life. He just wants to move on, and start fresh. And get away from crazy women. Adelle Harrington literally crashes into his life, and turns it on it's axis. She's stubborn, sassy, and opinionated- telling Black exactly what's on her mind. She is also the mayor's daughter. So she should be off limits. When Black's past comes back to haunt him, will Adelle get caught in the crossfire? 

First, I haven't read t

Well, this story was crazy all over the place. And I enjoyed every part of it. Addie and Black... Those two was from the same pot and perfect for each other. Though, I have to say sometimes I wasn't sure if I should laugh my ass off or what with theirs and Crayon families antics. It's for sure one unique and colorful family. I can't wait for next book.

3 1/2 stars. Another humorous addition to the Lucas Brothers series. The meet cute between Black and Addie was a case of mistaken identity. On both of their parts. They did discover their true identities after a few chapters so it didn't drag on through the book.
Black has some serious trust issue from a previous relationship and decides to stay away from Addie. Which, of course does not work out. And here is where the book lost a star from me. The scene where he decides to give in and go to her

Gah..... gosh do I adore these Lucas men!! Black and Addie are terrific together!! Their personalities clash but only to turn into some hot fireworks!! Thus had the usual comedic performance from Ida Sue, steam, and a terrific storyline. Another fantastic addition to the series for Jordan!!!

I love a book that makes me laugh out loud and this one does not disappoint.

Black just may be my favourite Lucas brother but I say that with every new book I read in this series. They just get better and better each time.

Black and Addie are a great match for each other and their banter between each other just makes you keep turning the pages.

Highly recommend this one to all those that love a good romantic comedy

Can’t wait for the next one.

Black is my favourite Lucas brother , and pairing him with Addie is just want the doctor ordered.
Addie is a handful in a good day and when she breaks the law all bets are off.
Black knows he should just walk away but come on he is a Lucas brother after all

“Addie, I know you’re scared. I know that’s my fault. I know me going hot and cold has you gun shy, but I need you to believe in me here. I need you to believe in us.”

Black's life has completely changed, thanks to his psychotic ex-girlfriend. Goodbye job, home, dog and tranquility. His life built in Dallas no longer exists. At age thirty-one he returns to his mother's house in Mason. Having to start over, and still resenting for having abandoned his career as a detective, which was something he

As a fan of Jordan Marie's since she released her first book, it's a given that if she releases it, I will read it. Initially I was drawn to her intense and gritty MC romances, and I have loved every single one of them. Her writing never fails to move me, to shock me, to make me feel. So, when she made the leap to romantic comedies with this series, I was a bit surprised at first. But that surprise soon morphed into another level of appreciation for her writing abilities.

"He's so infuriating, I really want to slap him. At the same time, I'm only human-and a female human at that, one who hasn't even seen a man who clicked all her buttons at once. This guy does that and then some."

Another fun, flirty, hysterical frolic with the Lucas clan. I will never get enough of the zaniness of this family, especially Ida Sue, the matriarch. I've been waiting for Black Lucas' story for what seems like forever and wasn't even close to disappointed. I couldn't put it down from t

WOWZA! Man oh man do I need Black in my life! This guy is awesome. He's funny, smart, sexy and he carries a gun for a living. YASSS PLEASE! Seriously though this book was pretty good. I loved the constant banter and one liners between Black and Addie. They had me laughing and giggling the entire time. She's full of sass!!! Fiercely independent. He's alpha male and bossy.

The hilarious Crayola Gang strikes again with Black Lucas... Oh Yeah... get ready for an extra-large dose of fun and pee-in-your-pants circumstances that will leave you rolling on the floor. This family is "like a tornado and hurricane of crazy all rolled into one big, huge bundle." Black meets his match in Addie, who is a feisty firecracker who always gives him a piece of her mind like Ida Sue and his sisters... and strangely loves it! Prob

I love these books and I Love Ida Sue

What can I say?? This book had me hooked from the beginning. I am an Ida Sue girl and I love her. Now to the main characters. Black was a total Hottie in my mind and he just needed to find the one that fit him and his family. I loved the banter between him and Luka and of course his mother lol.
Now Addie was a sweetheart. I loved her character and how she never gave up her dreams or her family. I shed a few tears over her life and Oh My God her hair!!!! And o

Win! Win! Win!

I freaking flove this series. Now just to let everyone know that I might have to share with Addie but Black Horn Lucas is mine I called dibs on the day of the cover reveal!!!!!
The dynamics of this family is an amazing thing to read about if everyone could have a mom like Ida Sue the world would be such a happier place.
This series is full of laugh out loud moments, sexy alpha men, hot AF sex scenes and a little angst thrown in. I read this in one sitting and going to bed at 4:00 am

I love Jordan Marie's crazy crayon family. Actually I think I like most of her work, this one wasn't my favorite however. Adelle started off being spunky but then she rolled over and let Black do whatever he wanted with her. Black well he really isn't my favorite of the Lucas family, I mean I love Grey and I loved White too, but I found that Black was really disrespectful, yes the other guys were bold and said some stuff that we would probably knock out if they were said to me, but I found Black ...more

Jordan Marie hit it out of the park with another crayon gang brother. Black was always a little mysterious and kind of a loner of the gang. His story was both steamy and heartfelt. I loved the way he loved his dog. I didn't like his ex-crazy girlfriend Linda but he was an awesome match for Addy. I loved this book and its dramatic and comical story line. Marie Jordan puts a little bit of both and that's what makes it great. This is an awesome read for everyone that likes a good steamy and comical ...more

There are three things we can always count on when Jordan Marie writes another book about the Lucas Brothers, aka the “Crayon Gang”.....First, it’s written by Jordan Marie, and she has never written a book that didn’t hold our attention....Two, We are going to see our favorite crazy character, Ida Sue, and NONE of us can ever predict what will come out of her mouth or what she will do....and Third, we are going to get to s

Trying to get his life back on track he isn't prepared for the little blond spitfire that crashes into his world. He's had his fill of crazy chicks.

What can I say about the crayon boys other than they are living life in technicolor! Black is certainly no exception.

I have loved Black since I knew he was a crayon boy. Black is my favorite color in clothing and I love the Man in Black aka Johnny Cash. Given these two facts, I knew Black Lucas was going to be my man out of the crayon tribe. Addie is the modern day June to Black…she is full of pi$$ and vinegar and is definitely not afraid to speak her mind. Loved the banter between Black and Ad
