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.

Leah Grant is de

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.

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 accepted by the p

What is in the water in Manning Grove? Because I want some of that! Jeanne St. James' second Brothers in Blue is HOT. She's created quite the stir with her Bryson Bucks, as Teddy likes to call them. They are all Alpha and all kinds of yummy.

So what happens with an all American, Man's Man alpha meets his match? All kinds of no good, and by that, I mean the best kind of no good. You know when a character is well written because the elicit an emotional response, and I wanted to smack Marc upside th

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.

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
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 then pass them

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 option

Again this is why I love these challenges, they have led me to so many good books and authors. I picked this for a team challenge and was hooked from the start. That is one hot brother and the sparks between Leah and Marc is so believable that I couldn't be upset that things progressed so fast. And their dad is one hot Poppa who can massage my feet anytime. Now I have to go back to read book one as I have book 3 already. To top it all off this was a free book. I would love to run into Marc, his ...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. This is the first I've read

I want to live in Manning Grove

I thought I loved Max, but Marc now takes the cake. He was such a strong police officer but a totally teddy bear with the woman he fell in love with. Leah was looking for a real just and ended up with a community and a family that fell in love with her. The two together were massive sparks but true soulmates. A read read that I highly recommend. I cannot wait until Matt's story.

This is the second book of the Bryson brothers series!!! You can read it as a standalone if you have not read the first. However I highly recommend the first. It gives you some insight to other characters in this book and well it's the first introduction we have to this world.

Much like the previous book in the series Marc did not let me down! It was hot, passionate, full of crazy twists and turns, and a lot of struggle and per

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
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!!

Although this is book 2 you don't have to read in order. This is the first book by this author that I have read and it won't be the last. Very realistic I could not put it down I loved it. Definately would recommend this book

Jeanne St. James has topped book 1 in this second story about Brothers in Blue. Alpha male with a hint (ok, more than a hint) of old-fashioned beliefs. Sassy, strong and opinionated heroine who knows how to give as good as she gets. Witty banter, action oriented plot and character development that will have you looking forward to reading more.

Loved it.......I see it depends on which author I read that I want to get to the good part and as I turned the page I wanted to get to the good part. Good build up and kept my attention and I can not wait for Matt and the novela about the cousin.

Fun read

Life changes, lots of times because of something sad, but one thing it teaches you is that sometimes there can be happiness once we move on. This was laugh out loud funny in places. I enjoyed the journey.

This is the second in the Brothers in Blue series. It can be read as a standalone although most of the supporting characters are ones from book one as well. I love Ma and Pops Bryson and Teddy and was glad to see them a bit in this book. Amanda is also back with her outspoken personality, her brother Greg, and husband Max (Bryson brother #1). They're such a close-knit group of people and Leah fit in perfectly.

Leah and Marc were also perfect together. They had instant attraction and chemistry. L

This is the second book in the series and can be read as a standalone. Marc Bryson is a police officer and currently the only one certified as a FTO (field training officer.) His brother Max, who we met in the first book, is the sheriff and assigns him a new recruit to train for a few months. The new trainee turns out to be a female named Leah Grant. Marc has strong opinions about women working in this field and would prefer they find another occupation. Leah is a take charge, no guff kind of wo ...more

Officer Marc Bryson is a macho cop who never believed in women police officers. Leah Grant has always wanted to be a police officer just like her late father was. Marc is assigned to be Leah's field training officer and he's not too happy about it. Can Leah prove to Marc that she is police officer material?

This is a well written addition to the Brother's In Blue series. The characters are well developed real and honest. I especially loved the Bryson family they added another level to this story

I liked Marc even better than his brother Max in the previous book. His personality was closer to my heart. Leah's character was also great. She was a though cookie but also kind and loving. She was professional and considerate in her chosen career even though she suffered from discrimination being a female police officer. Even Marc had his really strong and not particularly supportive opinion on the topic. It was entertaining to read how the mighty has fallen though. He just couldn't fight love ...more
