Book Review – Cocky Senator by Faleena Hopkins (Cocker Brothers #5)

JUSTIN
I’m about to run for Senator, the youngest Georgia’s seen in 200 years. For my whole life, this has cocky-senatorbeen my obsession. It’s why I went to Yale. Why I work twelve hour days. I don’t want kids. I don’t want a wife. I don’t believe in marriage, for a very good reason that I will never share with anyone.  Going to Washington is all I ever think about, until a smoky-eyed beauty orders, “Jameson whiskey, rocks,” and accepts my invitation to what turns out to be the hottest sex of my life.  When she leaves me standing there staring after her and zipping up my pants, wondering who the hell she is, I try like hell to ignore the fact that my obsession just switched…to her.

JAIMIE
My father needs me. So here I am at the airport leaving everything I’ve built in Boston and everyone I know, in order to move to Atlanta. Hence the booze before noon on a Tuesday. When Justin Cocker appears at my side, offering himself up as a stress-reliever, I know he doesn’t recognize me. Why would he? I only went to his high school for one year, and I was hideous back then. Late bloomer – that’s me. He’s gorgeous and dirty-minded. Best of all is the look in his eyes. Desire. Lust. Need.  He leans in and smirks, “I know a janitor’s closet that locks.” You think a lady would turn down such an offer, wouldn’t you? Not today she wouldn’t.

4 out of 5 stars

I have to say, the blurb about this book doesn’t do it an ounce of justice, because this book is way deeper than a dude trying to get in a chick’s pants.  Sadly, that’s what you think reading this blurb.  And this book is so much more than that.

Justin Cocker, identical twin to Jason (book 4) is running for Senate in Georgia as an independent, and on a flight back to Georgia, at an airport in Boston, he meets Jaimie.  They hook up in an airport closet, then again on the plane (they’re both on the same flight).  Once they get back to Atlanta, they go their separate ways.

Jaimie is moving to Atlanta to help her father with his Senate campaign – against who else, but Justin.  They end up seeing each other at a bunch of events, hook up sometimes but that’s about it.  Justin is NOT interested at all in getting married or having kids.  Ever.

Jaimie, on the other hand, has some major daddy issues of her own.  Her dad never made her a priority in his life, which screwed her up.  There is a major plot twist in this book that was so well written, and believable, and it painted Justin in the best light.  I won’t spoil it, but you’ll love Justin so much more after you read this book.

This book was really good, probably the best in the series.  Hopefully the author will write a spin-off series about the kids:)

Happy reading.
