Very good book. Jayne and Conrad have been married for seven years but separated for three. Jayne couldn't handle the fact that Conrad would disappear for weeks at a time without telling her anything and without staying in touch. It reminded her too much of her father who had been unfaithful and had a second family that he had kept secret. She was sure Conrad wasn't cheating, but the secrets were tearing her up. So she left him and tried to rebuild her life. Now she's back to get him to sign div ...more
This is the second book in the Alpha Brotherhood series, about a bunch of men who were delinquents and sent to a reform school where they met Colonel Salvatore and Troy, the hero Conrad and Malcolm formed an unbreakable bond.

Conrad the hero is filthy rich, owns casinos and the world but he also works secretly for the Interpol. He and Jayne have been married for seven years but have spent the past three years apart ever since Jayne walked out, tired of her husband's secrets and absence, it remind
I have many times heard the expression"being married is not always all it seems to be". And in this book from best selling author Catherine Mann I as reader was shown just one of the reasons as to just why all is not as it seems.

Jayne has been separated from her husband for three years, a man she will always love but could not fully trust as during the four years they were together he would disappear for weeks and never reveal where he was or what he was up to. I did not blame her one bit as I a
I've enjoyed other Catherine Mann books, so I knew what to expect in this one. I liked the series premise of the Alpha Brotherhood, rich and successful men who were recruited as freelance intelligence operatives for Interpol. It's an exciting series premise and something I could almost believe to be real.

I also liked the story premise of the book, of a hero who had let his work ruin his marriage. The hero is absolutely dreamy and he was totally rockin' the James Bond vibe, but without as many ac

Catherine Mann's All or Nothing is the 2nd book in The Alpha Brotherhood series. I didn't read the first book, but this one has made me curious, and I may read it at a later date.

All or Nothing had my emotions on a roller coaster ride. At one point I was actively against Jayne Hughes ever having anything to do with her secretive husband, Conrad Hughes, a multi-millionaire casino owner who maintains many residents around the world.

The story begins with Ja
***Detailed Review***

Can a marriage on the brink of collapsing be saved? After four years of marriage and three years separated, Jayne Hughes has finally sought out her husband, Conrad Hughes to sign the divorce papers he keeps sending back unsigned to her lawyer.

Overall, ALL OR NOTHING was a real treat to read. I enjoyed nearly all of it as Conrad and Jayne who are two very different people find their way back to each other.

Conrad spent his teen years following in his father footsteps of whit

Conrad Hughes had warnings written all over him, but that did not stop Jayne from falling in love with the man who she married in such a short time. When Conrad started to disappear without a word or a warning, a girl can only handle so much before jumping to conclusions. Now separated for three years and living in different states, Jayne still cannot get her ex-husband to sign the divorce papers so she t

This book started with Jayne went to her estranged husband’s casino to gain his attention and his agreement to sign on the divorce papers. She succeeded in getting Conrad’s attention when he appeared almost immediately by her side. They have been separated for 3 years now and it is time for Jayne to find the closure of her marriage and be able to move on. Jayne walked out of their marriage when she could not bear with Conrad’s secretive about his life other than the one she shared with him. But ...more

All or Nothing is an entertaining romance with a touch of suspense to keep things interesting. It was a little far-fetched but I expect that from these kinds of books and to be honest it is one of the reasons I like them so much.

The characters were strong; Conrad is extremely likeable (even when he is being silly). He was trying so hard to stop things from falling apart but most the time only made it worse. He makes mistakes, but he owns them so it’s forgiva
All or Nothing by Catherine Mann is an intense and passionate romance story.

Now after three years she has gone to his casino and home to get him to sign the divorce papers. This is the only chance that Conrad will have to try and win his wife back. But when h

Oh I loved the book so much Jayne was the perfect counter point to Conrad. Jayne flys to Monte Carlo to serve her estranged husband of three years divorce papers. Conrad has not been able to get over Jayne and has been waiting for her come back to him. Jayne and Conrad still love each other so much but secrets and lies drove them apart the first time. Will they be able to over come the lies once revealed or has their ship finally sailed. It was great how at first I thought this book would only c ...more

It's been a while sine the last time I read good Harlequin books. I enjoyed it so much.

Jayne's so sick of his husband's secretive attitude. They've been married for seven years, yet it's like she didn't know him at all. And everything got worse when his husband, Conrad went MIA for three years. Jayne can't take it anymore, so she filed for divorce. But apparently Conrad's not ready to let go. He'll do anything to keep her in his bed, under his roof. But what will happen when his secret ruins it
this series keeps going strong. I can't wait to meet the rest of the brotherhood!
Book Binge
My experience with Catherine Mann novels leads me to believe that a reader who really enjoys romance fiction will seldom if ever be disappointed with one of her stories. This short novel is no exception. The marriage which holds center stage in this story is in deep trouble and has been for years. Husband and wife have not even communicated directly with one another and even though divorce papers have been sent back and forth across the Atlantic, the impasse continues. Conrad can't even face the ...more

I liked the first book in this series, it was like watching a Bond movie but with an actual romance and this series has a good potential, but I would prefer if this book had a dangerous side since the begin.

We’ve met Conrad and he’s a very good man, but he still misses his wife and cannot accept the break-up, and that is really strange when you realize that he was hiding his missions from her and just wanted her to believe in him faithfully while he fought evil around the world.

I liked Jayne and

Why I picked this book up: Last year I read my first Catherine Mann book, a romantic suspense titled Cover Me, loved it, and immediately read the rest of the Elite Force series. When I saw this new title from her available as an ARC (Advanced Review Copy) from NetGalley, I was excited. Even if I hadn’t already been a fan of the author, the blurb would have sold me with the idea of Monte Carlo and romance in a marriage!

I was also curious to read a category roma
This story is all about taking risks... On Conrad Hughes' part, he risked his marriage for his undercover job... On Jayne's part, she risks having a broken heart the second time around... Jayne walked out of Conrads life 3years ago to prove a point to herself--that her husband is keeping secrets from her and doesnt love her as much as she think he does... Conrad is also stupid for not coming after her... even after 3years. not a shadow, a single note or a call... If i was Jayne, I would've given ...more
Just finished reading All or Nothing by Catherine Mann. The review of the book had been good. I always read Harlequin without expecting anything much. A light romance, a cuppa coffee. silent house - all the rare perks of being a housewife:)

But I must say I was taken my surprise by the psychological aspects touched in this book. Both the protagonists are affected by their fathers duplicity. Strangely they both bring that into their marriage. Got me thinking here? How affected are we with the way

All or Nothing is book two in The Alpha Brotherhood series. In All or Nothing we get a closer look at the smart one of the group. Conrad, or as Jayne would call him The Sean Conary Bond. Yes you will have to read the book to understand.

This was a quick good read. We learn a lot more about The Alpha Brotherhood’s history and get to meet a few new members too. Which means more books right?

I really enjoyed reading about Conrad & Jayne’s history and present. Both are so stinking stubborn and l
Actually the book made me want to clout the hero over his head for being such a dumb guy. But this book gets a full 5 stars just because in todays day and age of instant gratification the hero is faithful and true to his marriage vows...for three long years.. OH!... what a guy.
All Or Nothing accurately described how Jayne and Conrad viewed their marriage. This book by Catherine Mann is one of the better "Reunion" books I've read.

When Jayne came to Monte Carlo to get her husband Conrad Hughes to sign their divorce papers, he convinced her to give him one more night. But Jayne is fed up with his sudden and unexplained absences for extended periods of time, no explanations offered and his lies. Little does she know that his ownership of a successful casino is really a cover for his work for Interpol and that he's really a very successful one at that. Now he has one last chance to convince her to stay together.
2.5 / 5

Over all, the book was very good, but it definitely follows Harlequin's "formula" and in the end the story suffered for it. The underlying story of Conrad's personal history, and the subsequent discord it creates between him and his wife, Jayne, seemed to be forced at times - and when it swings from a heated argument to lust-bunnies in the span of a couple sentences is enough to give me whiplash.
I love a good fantasy spy story, and this book works. The writing was impeccable, and I enjoyed the story.

However, I would've liked a bit more than, "Oh, looks like you were safe after all."

I know this wasn't an 'Intrigue' title, so I really shouldn't pick nits. A little more peril would have added an extra dimension, taking this tale to a higher level.

A fun, quick, semi-light read.
A compelling look at a very troubled marriage and a set of circumstances that are far more complicated than first seemed to be the case. Another fine story from Catherine Mann, and not one of your light-hearted stories that many equate with a Harlequin of the past. This one hits below the belt and keeps the tension going from start to finish.
I've never read the first novel in the series but reading this one was good. I didn't feel lost at all, it could of been a stand alone. The hero was a douchebag for lying to his wife, the heroine for so long though.
