Wendy reviews Cooper (Blue Collar Daddies Book 3) by Jacki James (Published November 22, 2021, 188 pages) A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.


Just call him the brat tamer.

Cooper Shaw knows exactly what kind of a man he wants, and someone who is interested in being a part time boy isn’t it. He wants a boy who will turn over everything to him. But not easily. He wants to have to work for it. What he wants is a boy with spirit and sass. The kind most Daddies want nothing to do with. What Cooper wants is a challenge. Also known as a brat.

Gavin Prince is not a happy boy. His parents stopped paying for his school because he was partying too much, but come on can you really have too much fun? Apparently his parents think so. They have cut him off and sent him to live with his uncle until he learns his lesson.

Cooper has had about enough of the poor little rich boy that has taken up residence at his favorite customer’s home. Gavin needs to be taught a lesson, and Daddy Cooper is just the man for the job.

I really enjoyed this book. It was so different, (in a great way) from what I was expecting.

Gavin was so easy to love as a character. He was so in control and totally knew what he was about. I know that’s what everyone thinks a Daddy should be, but Gavin does it with an easy grace and it feels so natural, I wouldn’t be able to believe he was anything BUT a Daddy. I felt a little sad that he was lonely and didn’t want to put himself out there with Cooper, but I loved that he wasn’t just going to play around. Gavin wanted to try for something real and that’s worth waiting for.

Cooper… I did not expect him to be such a likeable boy. I saw all that brattiness when he teased Gavin all summer long, but I didn’t see how hurt and neglected he was. This boy NEEDED someone to rein him in, give him structure and attention. He NEEDED someone to show him that he mattered. My heart broke for him once I saw how badly his mother treated him.

So, for all that, it isn’t super angsty. These guys are all about making the best of the hands they’re dealt and I really enjoyed watching them learn, grow and love together.

Jacki James has been saying she was going to write a book since she was sixteen and wrote fanfiction (before fanfiction had a name) about her favorite Rockstar. She is a believer in love of all kinds but MM romance is her favorite by far. She has a romantic heart and a dirty mind and likes to write stories that let both shine.
