When I met Ryan, I might've been trying to break into his basement.

It was for a good cause. I swear. Also, my dog broke in first.

Ryan Blake is jaw-dropping handsome, wealthy, and cocky. Not quite my type. By some miracle, he doesn't call the police on me when he catches me trying to rescue my dog. He even fetches a doctor for me. Don't ask why.

I don't figure I'll see him a

It was my first read of this author and I honestly didn't know what to expect. This was a sweet insta-ish love story but it felt kind of under-developed. Everything happened so fast and for the majority of the story I felt that it was repetitive and kept recycling not just the same phrases but whole conversations as well. Unfortunately, I didn't feel connected to the main characters since they didn't seem to be fleshed out to their potential.

This could have been a great story if it had more "mea

SEXY SUIT features appearances from Graham and Soraya (Stuck-Up Suit) and is the story of Ryan and Addie.
I really struggled to like the characters in this book which in turn caused me to have a disconnect with the actual storyline. I can’t really pinpoint what put me off but I just wasn’t a big fan of the writing unfortunately.

I’ve previously read a short story by J.H. Croix in a Christmas collection and wasn’t crazy about it, but I decided to give the author another try. I’m not crazy about short stories, so it made sense to give a longer read a go. Unfortunately, after Sexy Suit, I’m thinking the author might not be for me.

I’m sure Sexy Suit will appeal to some, but I found it undeveloped and repetitive. There were many elements in this one that could have been fun, but none were taken as far as I would have liked t

3.5 really close to 4, heartwarming feel-good, Stars!

Well done opposites attract romance! I really liked that both Ryan and Addie had reservations, not just one. That felt new and unique to me. It gave the story a fresh feel for me. Again, new to me author that enjoyed however the story itself was more predictable than I normally like. Yes, I’m aware that I read a lot and it’s hard to surprise me, but I pretty much knew everything that was going to happen before it happened. It’s just a small de

I loved how these two met. At first I thought it was going to be a huge back and forth fighting. But Ryan was actually a good guy.
Addie and Ryan couldn't have been more opposite. Ryan was the New York City hot shot owner of his own company and Addie was just a small town girl from New Orleans. Addie inherited her great aunt's brownstone and decided she needed a change. Then she meets Ryan when her dog Barnable goes missing and he accidentally crawls into Ryan's basement.

Addie is a free spirit from the south who moved to New York after inheriting a house. Ryan is a fully focused business man not looking for commitment, but we all know you find the good things in life when you least expect them.

This is a fun story that starts with a meet cute, and has all the factors that make books fun. A sexy alpha male, a quirky, independent heroine, loads of chemistry, and a dash of unresolved issues from the past.

A well written, fun story that’s easy to read and leaves the

Sexy Suit is a sweet and heartwarming read that I liked a lot and entirely enjoyed.
There was an immediate attraction and chemistry between Ryan and Addie that you can feel from the moment they met,when he caught her breaking into his basement. They were so sweet together and clear example that opposites definitely attract. There wasn’t any unnecessary drama in this book and I loved that. I adored Addie’s dog Barnable, he made this book so much more special for me. All the secondary characters w

Sexy Suit is my first book by JH Croix and I adored it. It was fun, sweet, and steamy and is an excellent addition to the Cocky Hero World. Addie has just moved to New York from New Orleans. She has been left a Brownstone in the will of her late great aunt. She is strong and independent and Ryan is charming, wealthy, and gorgeous. They meet in different way but there are immediate sparks and their chemistry is undeniable. I don't think there is more unlikely pairing than th

Romance is character driven.

I get that. And romance isn't always a story that's told from one big event to another.

But this one? Nothing....happened, physically or emotionally. It never felt like there was any movement through any kind of story. I got to more than 25% through this book and I don't think I knew anything more about the characters than I did at the beginning.

The meet cute was...cute. But I wasn't charmed. There was a dog...even the dog lacked personality.

I had a really hard time connecting with this story. It felt as though the story was undeveloped and kind of rushed. You don’t truly get to know the characters, they met in such a fun way but then they just kind of get together and flow through the story. Some parts felt repetitive. I wish there was more character development where we learn more about them and how their relationship came about.

Sexy Suit was my first read by J.H. Croix and I found it to be an adorable read. The meet cute between Ryan and Addie was original and super funny. I love books about a southern girl moving to the big city,,because I’m a southern girl. The author captures the fun, exciting, and nerve wracking adventure of relocating to a new and totally unfamiliar city with humor and witty banter, and steam. Ryan is a complex character with sadness in his past, and that has shaped him into the man he is. But

Another new to me author from this round of Cocky Hero World release. Sexy Suit, is obviously set in the Stuck Up Suit world. Adorable doesn’t even begin to describe these two despite the whole dirty sex that happens . They are total opposites a Southern girl who has recently moved to New York and who has lost her dog. She wants a new experience and it’s interesting she choose New York until we get to know her character and her back story.

This was such a delightful, opposites attract romance! This is my first time reading this author, and I very much enjoyed this book!

Addie is our sweet and sassy heroine who has recently moved to NY, and Ryan is a grumpy, alpha, and slightly asshole hero. These two are compete opposites, but they are so much more than what I just described. These two aren't stereotypical characters, and you can't help but fall in love with them!

This was a very sweet romance with ALL the feels! Barnable is one to

Ryan can be caught off guard by his woman at times, “eff me. Stockings? You actually wear stockings with a garter.” His eyes lifted to mine, the look there almost pained. “You’re going to kill me.” Ryan is a sucker for his woman's dog, “Barnable was a good boy,” Ryan said softly. “I might have given him too many treats.” The sheepish smile that followed his comment had my heart doing cartwheels." I liked this book, I loved Ryan. ...more

This is my first introduction to this author and I’ll definitely be reading more from her as this was a great read.

Ryan and Addie are two complete opposites. Neither of them expected to have feelings for someone they have nothing in common with. However fate works in strange ways. I was so rooting for these two and hoped that they could move on from their past.

A great page turner that had me all warm inside.

Good story for this series, I liked that both Addie and Ryan were erring on the side of caution and they each had reservations about pursuing anything romantic in nature. They're the very definition of opposites attract, and while the story is a bit predictable, I liked it enough to see it all the way through and see how Addie and Ryan reached their HEA. ...more

Addie gets caught breaking into Ryan’s basement but he believes her when she tells him she was just there to get her dog. She’s not fond of sexy men and he’s not fond of anything other then work but they are both intrigued by each other and want to know more. Cute story and I adored Addie

75% of the book was so instalove that it got boring. There was nothing to the story. No conflict, nothing to make them fight for each other. Then all the sudden at 80% in the h overheard a conversation the H was having with someone else and took it the wrong way. I skimmed the last 25% of the book, I couldn’t bother I was so bored at that point.

Sexy Suit is a new novel that’s part of the first intake into the Cocky Hero Club. These novels are all set in the new world inspired by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward's series of standalone novels that started with Cocky Bastard. This particular story is part of the Stuck-Up Suit world and Graham and Soraya, the couple from that book, appear in this one.

If you’ve read Stuck-Up Suit, I’m sure you’ll be delighted to catch up with Graham and Soraya, and see how much in love

Sexy scenes & romance b/t the H&H, but there isn’t much of a story. Boring & doesn’t have much depth to it; just kinda follows them thru their regular days.

Addie does not trust rich, sexy men but when she runs into Ryan while breaking into his house to get her dog, she is struck by his looks and cockiness. Ryan treats his women like he does his business, do not get attached, that is until he sees this beautiful woman breaking into his house.

This is the first book that ive read by this author and I didnt know what to expect. This book is a real opposites attract romance and it was beautifully written.

Ryan is a very sexy, suit wearing kind of guy who is also very rich and a total city guy. When he sees this woman he starts to feel things he truly didn't expect to, she is not really his type and he didn't expect anything to happen.

Addie is different from Ryan in more ways than one and what she really didn't expect was to fall for t
