JACK OF HEARTS – A Sandra Owens Review


**ARC received from the author for an honest review**

Meet Alex Gentry: undercover FBI with the right mix of badass and righteousness. He’s been working undercover with his brothers to take down a kingpin; everything has been carefully planned out and calculated. Except for Madison Parker, niece to the elusive kingpin and somehow wrapped up in his dark world. Alex never planned to have her in his radar…but now he can’t seem to get her out of harm’s way.

I loved the blend of bad boy biker and FBI agent with Alex and his brothers. Owen’s clever nicknaming of the brothers as card faces was refreshing; hence our books title as Alex is “HeartMan”. For book one on the series there is a good layout of characters and whats going on but I was a but lost in the beginning. I feel like there’s already backstory to Madison and Alex that isn’t told clearly enough for us at first. But it was quickly forgotten once you get down to the meat of the story.

Madison and Alex have an undeniable attraction to one another and light up the page. and not just with their passion but with the action that we see. Its almost like a biker/mob version of Romeo and Juliet except adults and no suicides. The underlying plot of Alex and his brothers’ mission he’d a great level of action for me, not enough suspense but it wasn’t by any means boring.

This was a first time read for me for Sandra Owens and I DEFINITELY can’t wait for book number two: King of Clubs!

 Alex Gentry doesn’t scare easily. Working as an undercover FBI agent in the biker bar he and his brothers co-own, he hangs with deadly criminals in order to gather information. Danger is just part of the family business. But one thing has him terrified: his attraction to Madison Parker.

Madison is the cousin of Ramon Alonzo, son and second in command to a notorious drug lord Alex is trying to bust. Alex has befriended Ramon as part of his cover, and Madison has unknowingly become his informant. Falling for her could risk this case—and both their lives.

All Madison wants is to get her new bookstore business off the ground, and for her creepy cousin Ramon—to whom she’s unfortunately indebted—to leave her alone. If she could only stop fantasizing about his mysterious new friend, Alex…

As the Alonzo cartel investigation heats up, so does their relationship. But will the secrets they’re keeping tear them apart—or get them both killed?




 Sandra lives in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Most days, you can find her with her fingers on a keyboard, her mind in the world of her imagination. It’s a land where romance and happy endings exist, a land where anything is possible.

A few highlights of Sandra’s life she fondly recalls are jumping out of a plane, flying upside down in a stunt plane, and riding her Harley in the mountains of Southern California and along the coast of Maine.

Although those events in her life were great fun, nothing compares to the joy and satisfaction she gets from writing her stories.

Sandra is repped by Courtney Miller-Callihan, Handspun Literary, and is a member of Romance Writers of America.
