Alonzo (Bossy Brothers, #5). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Alonzo by J.A. Huss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.


Tara Tanner and I are not a couple.

We don’t do real life. We don’t do real numbers. We don’t do real names. 

We do phone sex, and text sex, and email sex. 

Everything about our ‘relationship’ is a lie. 

You call it catfishing, I call it being careful. And I do not feel bad about it. Because my life is an ocean of secrets that could all wash ashore if I’m not careful.


Alonzo Dumas is the King of Catfishermen.

Oh, yes. I know who he really is.

But he has no idea who I am. 

I feed on secrets. They’re my lifeblood. He has no idea that I’ve been stringing him along, casting him a line of lies like bait, and now I’ve got him on my hook.

Watch out, Alonzo Dumas. Because I’m about to reel you in.


Even better than I expected! Dirty from the start and so humorous.

I can’t believe I waited so long to read this book. I had planned to read it from the time I first heard about it when I got the promotional materials for the release of the book back in January but at the time it was too late to sign up for the ARC & review it, so I put it on my TBR and I just have been a bit too busy since then.

However, I did recently sign up for the ARC of the next book, in the series and they offered this one as well so I jumped on it and am so glad I did! I completely fell in love with it. Though each book is technically a stand-alone since they are about different couples, they are about two families that are interconnected through marriage and relationships.

This book is about Alonzo Dumas who is in an online/phone/text/Skype relationship with a girl named Tara Tanner where they sext and talk so filthy to each other that I’m surprised their computer chips and SIM cards don’t melt from all that heat. However, Alonzo is cat-fishing Tara. She thinks he is a mild mannered slightly boring accountant with a dirty streak, but a safe guy by the name of Lonnie Derringer. Unlike the Tattooed bad boys we used to run with before she ended up coming to Colorado and becoming a librarian who wears pencil skirts, blouses and glasses every day.

Though in reality he in Alonzo Dumas, 6’4” Deep Sea Fisherman in the Florida Keys, he rarely wears a shirt, he has muscles built from hard work, not the gym and a body covered in tattoos of all kinds of mermaids, sirens and the fishermen they lured to their deaths. Oh, and as a side job he is into some shady illegal activities with his family.

I don’t want to give away too much but I will say that Tara has not been totally honest with Alonzo either, though they are getting to the point in their relationship where they are starting to feel restless no matter how hot and steamy their calls are I suppose it would get hard to not actually be able to touch each other and be thousands of miles away. I guess you would get to a point where it would be either time to fish or cut bait (pardon the pun). That is when the fireworks begin and boy what a show they are! I will definitely be going back to book 1 and reading the rest of this series as soon as I can!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
