Maddox is book three in the Jokers MC series. I am absolutely loving this series and now Maddox is my new favourite.

Maddox is a private investigator who is asked to look for Blackhearts sister. He gets more than he bargained for when he meets Carmella. Maddox is broken from his past and doesn’t want a relationship... or does he?

Absolutely loved this story and loved meeting il with old friends from previous books.

I Loved Maddox & Carmella

A friend of Maddox from the Southside Skulls MC had asked for a favor from him to go to NOLA and help Blackheart, who is Prez for the Jokers MC, find his sister. When a man as feared as Blackheart asks for help you know that he's beyond desperate. The men from the Jokers MC hasn't found a trace of Bridgett.

Maddox was well known for being at the top of his game being a PI who knew how to get things done. An older man who was the owner of a butcher shop went missing at the

What an awesome series. I just love these Bayou Bikers from Jefferson Parish / New Orleans. The author has given us another action packed suspenseful storyline with hot sexy biker style romance as only the Wild Jokers and their inner circle can do.

Maddox isn’t a brother in the Jokers MC, he’s a Private Detective that’s been brought in to find Blackheart’s sister. She has been missing for over a week and Blackheart is slowly losing his mind. Maddox is a loner - ever since his wife and son were t
Maddox is a PI helping the Joker's MC president Blackheart search for his sister. She has been missing for a week with no signs of what happened to her. Maddox has a trouble past and doesn't want a relationship until he meets Carmella. Carmella happens to be part of a mafia family and has connections that can help in the search for Blackheart's sister Bridgett. Maddox may have gotten in over his head with Carmella. A good read and series so far, as this is the third book. Looking forward to more ...more

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Welcome to the world of the Jokers. When Blackheart's sister goes missing he goes on a rampage but finds nothing. The Westside Skulls send Maddox, a P.I., to help him out. At the start he meets Carmella though he tries his best to stay away from her he just cannot help himself. As he looks into things the stories just do not line up making him suspicious though things kind of stall until he gets insider
Another great read in this ongoing series.
We really loved the characters and we loved the twist with the mafia/biker theme going on and we also loved the setting of the book because the town itself created added mystery and intrigue to the story.

I enjoyed all the characters but, Camella turned out to be our favorite character. I loved her strong sexy personality. I loved her fierce independence nature and considering the family she was in had opinions of her own regarding her family's legacy, b

Maddox is the third in the Jokers series, and I'm still quite taken with the Jokers MC in New Orleans, Louisana. However, Maddox departs from the previous two books because Maddox is not a member of the MC. He's a close friend, a member of the Skulls MC out of California, who connects Maddox with Blackheart. Maddox, a PI, is hired by Blackheart to find his baby sister who has gone missing.

By now, we know Blackheart has quite a reputation in New Orleans, and his club is known for its strengths. M

Suspense and danger. That's at the heart of the latest story in this MC series. Blackheart's sister is in danger after she disappears with no clue where she is or if she's alive. Blackheart is a menace the longer his sister is gone. Calling in help from Cali's Westside Skulls and Blackheart's old friend Maz and friend to the Skulls Maddox. Maddox has his own demons but he's up for the job and heads to NOLA with Maz. When he gets there he encounters the beautiful Carmella, daughter of the local m ...more

I seriously hope there's more to come in the Jokers MC series, as I definitely am crazy addicted. Now Maddox isn't part of that MC, he's PI who has been asked to help find Blackheart's (The Prez of the Jokers) sister since they know that she's been taken by someone & has been gone a week already. It sends him on a journey which deals with the Jokers, plus a crime family, and the head of that crime family has a daughter, Carmella, who Maddox hooks up with quickly after he gets there, but it becam ...more

Ok this series just get better and better. I wasn't 100% impresssed by book 1 Blackheart but after reading Gabriel and now Maddox I am hooked. Jessie Cooke is a great MC Romance author and I love her books.

In this book Blackheart's sister is missing and so far the Joker's MC has not been able to find any clues. They could just be too close since it is on of their own. They put in a call to another friendly MC and Maddox arrives. Maddox is a PI in California. While in Louisiana he meets Carmella

Oh yeah, I’m loving the Jokers MC series, pretty sure I need to take a trip to New Orleans someday just to listen to them talk. Maddox is technically not a Joker, he’s not even a member of an MC, but he is a friend of the Westside Skulls and that friendship, along with being a really good private investigator, leads him to New Orleans and a very interesting missing person’s case. Seems the Joker’s President, Blackheart, has a younger sister who’s turned up missing along with a local businessman ...more

Maddox is a private investigator in California. When a friend asks for his help in New Orleans to find 2 people that have gone missing he does. What he doesn't bargain for is that he finds someone that makes him feel that connection he had with his wife. Someone who happens to be the daughter of the person he is investigating.

Carmella knows that her dad is not a great guy. She knows what he is involved in but she doesn't believe that he would be capable of kidnapping 2 people. Her cousins on the

New Orleans is not Maddox's normal stomping ground. When a friend from his past asks him to help find someone and solve a mystery that may just be bad for his friend's MC, he can't refuse. Besides, he really has no reason to or any reason to worry about danger. It's just another case.

The case turns out to involve more than he planned on. A woman. He didn't have relationships, rarely even one-nighters. More like one-hour or so. This time things are different and he can't seem to ignore the woman

“Maddox was a fantastic new addition of the Jokers MC series. The story was incredible, exciting and so delightful to read. Wow! Jessie did an incredible job with Maddox and Carmilla’s story. I do have to confess that I first I wasn’t able to feel the chemistry between them like something was missing. Yeah they had no-attachment kind of relationship based on pure s*x but it doesn’t matter how things starts there’s always a spark. Anyway both were special characters with their uniqueness and they ...more

This is the third book in the Jokers MC Louisiana series, and is Maddox and Carmella's story. This installment was addictive. I loved everything about it, Maddox and Carmella were so easy to love. They were so different, but really complimented each other. Maddox's story was so heartbreaking and I could completely see why he chose to live his life the way he did. I love his vulnerability and strength in equal measures. Carmella was brave and strong. What I loved most about her was her attitude. ...more

Although this book is about Blackheart's sister and her disappearance, it is mostly about Maddox and his romance with Carmella who are not a part of the Jokers MC. It's more mafia and this book felt out of place in the series, I can see it as a spin off but not as book 3 in the series. I loved books 1 and 2 and the Cajun, voodoo culture that is woven into the stories but because Maddox is from California and an outsider, that charm is missing. This was a good book, plenty of steam and fast paced ...more

Another entertaining story in the world of the Jokers. Maddox was not actually in the Jokers but was helping out with their latest problem. He was a smart, no-nonsense guy, with a world of hurt in his past. Then he met Carmella and started a new journey. Carmella was not proud of her family but enjoyed her independent life. Together they were steamy, and she was so good for him to help move beyond the pain. I could have used a little more between them to make a stronger relationship, and I did e ...more

Maddox is the third installment of the Jokers MC series.  Maddox is a PI and widow and is called in by the Jokers to help find Blackheart's missing sister.  Along the way he meets Carmella, the first woman who makes him really feel something for the first time in a long time.  Unfortunately this book left a lot to be desired.  It moved very slow and didn't leave me with an eagerness to keep turning the pages as the previous two books did.  It wasn't even really about the reason Maddox is introdu ...more

While he's there he meets Carmella Tucci, daughter of mob boss Mario Tucci. Their journey is a beautiful, fast paced story that will make you believe in l ...more

Maddox is a man who knows his trade and knows it well. Being asked by a man he respects to help him well the bodies are starting to tell a tale. With all the drama and suspense you would think that love is not on the books but you would be wrong. This is part of the Wild Ones series and it brings a lot of players into the game no one any can afford to lose. That being said this story is not one to be missed. Another addition to this series.

This very well written book 3 in Jokers MC series. A well-paced and standalone book that has amazing characters. It will keep you on your toes from beginning to end because it has action, adventure, drama, danger, suspense, intrigue, surprises, betrayal, romance, and love. This emotional roller coaster of a book will have you hanging on by the seat of your pants and not letting go until you have read the whole story. I love these types of books

Maddox was very interesting and hot. He is a sexy P.I. friend of Maz that is called in to help Blackheart find his sister and friend that have disappeared. He is still grieving his family and friends. While trying to find Brigette, Maddox meets Carmella. His heart is broken but trying to heal and move forward. He is leary because of his past but his brain eventually catches up with his heart. Maddox found more than Brigette and Louis in NOLA.

Lord have mercy Jessie has done it again. I loved Maddox right from the beginning. I was swept off my feet at how he was so loyal to the club and especially looking for Blackhearts Sister. When the two of them meet their are sparks and Maddox is brought to his knees because he has never been in love like this before.

If you love yourself a good ole MC read then this is it. So go on and one click this bad boy and enjoy the roller coaster of a ride with Maddox and Carmella.

Really enjoyed reading this book. Maddox is ex military and has his own buisness as a PI. He's gone thru hell in his life, in and out of the military. He's asked to come to NOLA to help find Blackheart's missing sister. Carmella is a nice distraction, till he finds out she's the boss's daughter, his people responsible for the missing girl. There's plenty of action, heat and humor. The ending was really humorous. HEA. ...more

Wow, this story was heartbreakingly beautiful. What both characters go through. I couldn't put down book once started.

I loved how we got to see all characters again.

I loved Maddox and Carmella together, they may of started out as a quick fuck. But they battled until the end. They were perfect for each other even with the wait.
