Another HOT book about a Bryson brother from Manning Grove!

BROTHERS IN BLUE: MARC (Brothers in Blue #2) by Jeanne St. James has the second Bryson brother having to train the new police recruit who just happens to be female. For an alpha male like Marc, who also happens to still believe there should not be any female officers, being made her FTO (field training officer) by his brother the chief seems like a sick joke.

What a refreshing read. I enjoyed this one, though Marc pissed me off a lot. Definitely will continue to read this series!

5 star review of Marc (Brothers in Blue #2) by Jeanne St James

Audio Review

I listened to Max, book one in the Brothers in Blue series and loved it, so when I saw Marc was now available I jumped right in. I adore stories about small towns and when it also has a hot as sin and totally alpha, not to mention a tad kinky cop such as Marc, then I couldn’t resist.

This was a great addition to the series. Ava Lucas and Jason Clark’s narration was spot on for these chara

I love me a man in blue and Marc isn't any different. Minus his macho, women shouldn't be cops attitude. To his credit, he puts Leah through the paces of learning how to do patrol. He wasn't counting on Leah being so attractive and such a good cop. Or the Chief, his brother, being so adamant on him training her.

Leah has graduated at the top of her classes in school and the police academy. Unfortunately she doesn't get many job offers as a woman. So the one she gets, she's going to do the absolu

I received the book from a review group. I loved Brothers in Blue: Marc. I absolutely love the series Jeanne St. James has written. She has well defined characters, her Alpha's are strong and macho like we want but yet she draws us in with their vulnerable side. Marc's "Achilles" comes in the form of rookie Leah. Leah in her own right has a strong personality, a take charge kind of lady, she has to be, she is a cop after all, and herein lies the power struggle and deep attraction between Marc an ...more

A good mix

I really enjoyed Marc & Leah's story. Small town where everyone know your name, taken in by good people etc etc. A feel good, laugh out loud story. And all with a touch of erotica. Definitely worth your time . The only thing I didn't care for was what I felt was an abrupt ending. An HEA type ending but abrupt. Also I advise you read Max first as it refers to characters from that book and if you don't you'll be missing out!

3.5 Stars due to grammar issues. I really liked Marc and Rookie Leah's story. Two hot cops, lots of steam...and handcuffs. Delish combo.

I voluntarily read an ARC of this book.

Ive got a hankering for somehot alpha cops

This is the second book in the brothers in blue series by jeanne st james and i really enjoyed it . Marc is the second child to the Brysons, older brother Max is the cheif of police and younger brother Matt is currently stationed over seas. Each of these books are standalones although i think they should be read in order or that could just be my OCD lol i thought Marc was the first book in the series but its Max.

What happens when a male Alpha Marc and a female Alpha Leah get together? In the case of Marc in Brothers in Blue some very steamy situations.

Leah recently graduated from the police academy at the top of her class. Unfortunately being a female in uniform can be a bit of a challenge being accepted into the mostly boys club. After being passed over by several potential precincts she is finally accep

When I started this book, I was sure I could not love Marc more than I did Max....but Jeanne St James has my heartstrings tugged in two directions now! Marc is put in charge of training rookie officer Leah Grant. With a chip on his shoulder, he begins her training, but the idea of a woman police officer is not one he favors and is not afraid to let her know it. Leah will do anything to prove she can be an effective asset to the force, and Marc's jabs just make her try harder. And the foreplay be ...more

When they fall, ladies, they fall hard!!
I enjoyed book one but I LOVED book 2. We still get a little of our favorites from book 1 so don’t worry.

The description says Leah has moxie and that is exactly how I would describe her! She is a kick butt kinda girl she isn’t going to stand back let things happen she is a doer.
The interaction between her and Marc CRACKS me up. I love how chemistry will get you EVERY time. They really do “try” and you have to give them points for that.

Marc is assigned to the new hire at the police station. His older brother Max has been promoted to Chief. Everyone knows every thing in the small town they live in. Marc doesn’t want to the the Field training officer especially when he realizes it is a woman.

Leah wants to follow in her fathers footsteps and be a police officer. She graduated the academy at the top of her class but no on wanted to hire a woman they all wanted men. When Max gives her a job she doesn’t know what to expe

This is the second book in Jeanne St. James' series that I have read, and all I can say is "there must be something in the water" in that small little town, because the men and women there certainly seem to be as randy and horny as rabbits. Which is a good thing for readers wanting a hot juicy taste of erotica, which the author delivers in vivid details. It was also a not-so-subtle smack back at the chauvinistic men still around who think a woman's place is in the kitchen and in the bedroom. But ...more

Well, handcuff me and pierce my nipples, please.

Marc, excuse me Officer Marc finds women in the line of duty to be just plain wrong. Even after he gets his very own G.I. Jane to work with. She proves him wrong in many, many ways. She schools him on the finer points of women in the line of duty. Along the way they both learn a few lessons on working with handcuffs.

Leah has some moves to share. She has skills, acumen, finesse, and the ferocity to make all her goals come to pass and th

I thought after listening to Max and Amanda’s story this series could not get any better. I should have known better.
Leah Grant, a strong, confident, no nonsense woman, wants to work in a predominately male occupation, a police officer.
Marc Bryson is placed in charge of Leah’s training, and he is not happy, being of a mind that women shouldn’t be in this occupation.
I laughed, I praised, Leah as she proved repeatedly to the conceited, egotistical Marc how wrong he was, at work and in

Women's lib has come a long way, with women working jobs that previously were male only roles. However, just because a woman is trained in the role, it doesn't mean that some men feel that some roles are suitable for women. Whether due to the protective nature of the male or the thought of a female not having the same strength and ability. it is difficult to curtail these ideas.
So this is the scenario, a police officer, known for his attitude against women in the police force is the only o

In this book we meet and discover Marc's story. He's made Chief of police in their town and the first thing he does is employ a fresh out of academy recruit called Leah. Her father was also in the police force so she has a lot to live up to. The attraction between Marc and Leah is off the charts, but is it enough? He wants her in his bed bu ...more

I am surprised I enjoyed a book with the H a male chauvinist. Marc believes a woman's place is not in a squad car, but is listing after his trainee, Leah. Leah is determined to prove him wrong. These two are well written, interesting characters, and their chemistry palpable. The book is fast paced and a quick read. Marc's family is close, sometimes too close, which adds to the book.

Brothers In Blue: Marc HOT! HOT! HOT!

If you thought Max & Amanda were hot together wait till you meet Marc & Leah. So much fun. Jeanne St James has done it again. I love her books and would recommend them to anyone who loves action packed stories wit steamy scenes that will keep you reading late into the night. So glad the next book in the series is on my Kindle waiting for me. Thanks Jeanne for sharing your Brothers In Blue with us.

Mar 17, 2017 rated it did not like it
Sadly i couldn't finish it as it really bothered me. Not that's bad written but i see no story and i'm at the middle of teh book it's like a excuse for steamy scene...and worse in my opinion they jump on each other right away when they don't even like each other ( yes they can love later but for me trust and love must be first)

sadly not a book for me

I absolutely loved this book. It was amazing. I read book 1 and it was awesome. Book 2, Marc, is just as awesome. I recommend reading book 1 first, because Marc then makes more sense in spots. But you don't have to. It stands alone just fine. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book in exchange for a free copy.

Marc is also in the local police he is against women in the force,Leah is fresh out of the academy and he is made her training officer they find they cannot keep their hand off each other the humour between the two of them is so well written I found myself laughing to myself though out this book just great so well written.
Love a man in uniform! Marc is all man! He was not exactly happy to be training Leah, but she is a great dedicated cop and she is going to prove it to Marc.

A few hot and sexy scenes!!🔥🔥🔥

You also get to see some of Marc and his family, seeing a how his brother is the chief!!

You should definitely check this out. I can not wait to read more!!
