A Jeri Review: Chief’s Mess (Anchor Point #3) by L.A. Witt


Rating: 3 Stars out of 5

I am generally a fan of LA Witt and this is the third book in a series in which I read all of them. And I have to say, meh.

I enjoyed the characters themselves- especially Anthony (plus redheads are WAY underrepresented in books). But there was so.much.sex. Granted- that is how they met, at a bar for a hookup. And then they did the long distance thing so as soon as they were together again they were immediately naked. But for me, it really detracted from the story.

I wanted to see more of Noah and his struggle with alcohol. While it is obvious that he is an alcoholic, we didn’t see a ton of it on page unless Anthony was talking or thinking about it. I did appreciate that he was an alcoholic for no other reason than he was an alcoholic. No past trauma or PTSD. Alcoholism is explained away many times with “reasons”. Noah had no reason.

The long distance thing seemed a bit unrealistic as often as they were flying back and forth to see each other. By my count it was about every other weekend when Noah had off. That is quite pricey.

A little less sex, a little more depth into the characters would completely change my review.


Cover art by L.C. Chase is eye-catching and sexy.
