When a police recruit reports for duty he discovers his wild one-night stand from the previous weekend is his new field training officer.

After serving seven years as a police officer in a small beach community is Southern California, Maya Navarro feels like she's finally been accepted by her peers. Now as a newly appointed Field Training Officer she can finally make her mark.

Returning to California after serving two tours of duty in Iraq, Cody Jackson makes the decision to become a police officer. He graduated from the Academy with flying colors and just has to make it through his field training to become a full-fledged member of the force.

Maya and Cody are both nursing broken hearts when their best friends push them into a one-night stand with each other. Even though their wild night together is the hottest sex either one of them has ever had they part ways believing they will never see each other again.

Until Cody reports for his first day of field training and discovers that Maya is his supervisor. Maya would rather die than admit to her sergeant the reason she can't oversee Cody's training. So she's stuck with him for ten weeks of very close and personal contact on a daily basis. As things heat up between them they need to remain strictly professional, or risk ruining their careers.

Great read. Dakota has outdone herself. The characters intertwine with her previous stories. There lots of humour throughout the story as well as a bit of suspense, steamy sections and a heart warming ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maya gets out of her comfort zone with Cody. June 30 2016
By K. Johnson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This story is short and sweet and kinda cheesy. Maya and CJ meet each other in a bar and have a one night fling. Neither of them have done this before and don't know how to cut the one night off. CJ doesn't want to stop seeing Maya. The following Monday she meets the police officer she is going to train and its none other than Cody Jackson. That makes the story more interesting. This story is pretty much rated PG-13. No spiciness to the one sex scene in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparks fly in the Rookie Mistake. July 22 2016
By Stephannie Tolitsky - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Rookie Mistake is to sleep with your co-worker or new boss. When a police recruit reports for duty he discovers his wild one-night stand from the previous weekend is his new field training officer.

Maya Navarro has been a police officer in a small beach community in California for 7 years. She has felt like her being a women officer has made it hard for her to be accepted by other male officers. Finally she feels like they are accepting that she is good at her job and just got promoted to Field Training Officer. The problem is her one night stand from the weekend before shows up as her first officer she has to train. If someone finds out about their night together.

Cody Jackson makes the decision to become a police officer after serving two tours. He just has to do the field training officer.

Maya is Cody's supervisor. So these two are stuck together for 10 weeks and Maya would rather die than tell her sergeant the reason she can’t oversee Cody’s training. Can these two remain strictly professional or risk losing their career?

I absolutely loved this book and story. I love Cody and Maya and the sparks that fly between them. They are so cute together and their night together was super hot! Now, Maya is Cody's supervisors and they have to fight their attraction and remain professional especially since Maya career is very important to her and Cody is making it extremely hard on her to remain professional. Its a great book It flows from start to end and I was hooked from the start. It is an easy, fun, hot steamy read. Its one I would recommend and its a standalone even though its part of a series. One click it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dakota Madison : An Author whose books are always worth the read. July 17 2016
By Paula L. Phillips - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
You know how you come across an author and he/she begins to become one of your favourites and no matter what is written by them, you know you will love. One of those for me is Dakota Madison - which is a pen name for an author whom has a few pen-names and I love all of her books. In the California Dreamers series, we meet a handful of characters with big dreams but life has a way of chucking obstacles in their way in order to achieve those dreams. You may recall the two police officers Navarro and Jackson from her Book #2 - So Far Away (Maddie's story) , they were the police officers that rescued her boss's cat from the tree. That moment has a cross-over into Rookie Mistake. The book starts off with Maya Navarro being dumped once again and her best friend telling her they need to hit a club far far away and she must have rebound sex. Maya and her friend visit a country bar where she meets CJ and they hit if off and eventually back to his place for a bit of a midnight nookie. They then go their separate ways and Maya is hoping she doesn't run into him again, whereas CJ swears he will see her again soon. What they don't discover till the next day is that CJ is a new Rookie and he has been paired up with none other than Maya Navarro. Of course there is chemistry and tension, but Maya can't let it get to her as she has worked the past seven years trying to get respect as a female cop and isn't going to let her one night stand cause it to disappear down the drain. Can the pair come to an agreement that it was a Rookie Mistake or is this the start of a blooming relationship that started from a Rookie Mistake but turned into something amazing ?

Find out in Book #4 of the California Dreamers Series by Dakota Madison. An Author whose books are always worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars!! What’s for you, won’t go by you… June 26 2016
By LJ Nelson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
On the advice of her bestie, unlucky in love and recently dumped (again!) Maya Navarro decides to throw caution to the wind and sow her wild oats with a night of passion with a complete stranger. If CJ just happens to rock her world, then so be it – if you know what I mean?!

However, CJ doesn’t stay a stranger for long. Maya is also a long serving police officer and on her first day as a Field Training Officer who should her new rookie recruit be? None other than CJ himself, or should I say one Cody Jackson.

I love these short on time books. They may be small, but they are perfectly formed. This book was the perfect pick me up as I was feeling a bit blue the day I read it. I snort/giggled my way through most of the book.

Cody and Maya both have their own demons and as the story unravels I did have a lump in my throat a time or two. Add their sizzling chemistry to the mix and you know some things cannot be denied:

“I think I’m falling for him just as quickly as he’s falling for me.”

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the author decides to write a story about Maya’s best friend Zoe. I just know that’d be a doozy.

Go on and one-click people – you know you want to!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Super cute and easy read July 18 2016
By Rather Be Reading - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I received an advanced readers copy of Rookie Mistake in exchange for my honest review.

This is the first story from Dakota Madison that I've read but it won't be the last! It is a Novella, so be aware that it is shorter than a full length novel. Which means you get a great story just in a condensed form, that does not leave you hanging! It is a super cute, funny and easy read that I devoured in no time! I loved the characters and enjoyed the chemistry between these two! It is a police romance which I enjoy. Definitely worth each penny! (And it's one sale for only 99 pennies!)
