“Truth or dare?”
“I’ll take your dare.”
“Kiss me.”

I don’t believe in Prince Charming, but when I met a handsome stranger on a rooftop his words intrigued me and his dares left nothing but temptation.

Then I learned the truth.

His name is Bryce Sexton. Media mogul, workaholic and a heart of stone. He’s broody AF and yet every woman in San Francisco wants him.

So why won’t

"Perhaps the heart can’t understand true love unless it’s been broken."

Lauren Runow & Jeannine Colette have once again come up with lovable characters and a story that will hit you right in the feels.

After reading and loving Austin, I knew I would read whatever this duo writes—so to read Bryce was a no-brainer. Was it what I expected? No, it was so much more. Bryce was a total swoon fest full of love and family! An emotional, fun, sexy and charming romance in which a man who believes to hav
Looking for your next book boyfriend?! Sorry, this one’s already taken. =P

Well, damn! That’s how you court a woman! Show her some love and compliment her. You don’t have to be flawless or rich but have her best interest at heart. Give her your love, attention and time. That’s invaluable and Bryce did it all right.
‘He knew things about me just by paying attention.’

I loved it! Tessa was no fool and surely able to save herself. She was a strong woman and didn’t need a hero but superman was j

“Perhaps the heart can’t understand true love unless it’s been broken.”

First, let’s state the obvious, Bryce is MINE. I saw (read, lol) him first and I get to keep him! It even says so in the first page (thanks guys!).

It’s no secret I love these two authors. I love their books and their stories and I just plain love them. They are both so talented, and definitely underrated. The world needs more Jeannine and Lauren. This series collaboration is definitely one of my favorites, the Sexton Brot

I have tried to get into this one for a couple of days, but I am going to have to call it a day. I was told there was only going to be a little "drama" caused by the assistant that tried to seduce the hero at the beginning of the book, but that in no way was it a huge part of the book. Ummm, I beg to differ. She is literally in the ENTIRE book, causes major issues, and on top of that, the heroine knows her! I have been actively trying to avoid pointless OW drama in my books lately and h

I thought I was going to like this book more than the first one but I didn't. It was just as mediocre as the first one.

2,5 stars

First of all, I didn't like Bryce that much. He is not as good a hero as Austin. Austin was stable and trust-worthy. He did nothing wrong to the woman he wanted. Bryce, on the other hand, appears to be this great man who goes after the woman he wants and when she resists, he does some great gestures and finally makes her say yes after a long struggle, but then, at the f

Bryce is the second book in the Sexton Brothers series.

I really enjoyed the base story-line of Bryce by Jeannie Colette and Lauren Runnow, and I really did like Bryce (at times less so) I liked Tessa even more so.

I just felt that the drama was really overdone and that the book could have been an easier more enjoyable read if they had reeled that in a bit.

With some chuckle worthy moments and plenty of romance, this was a likeable story that I would have rated higher if it hadn’t been for the dram

"The way she's looking at me lets me know she's surrendering. Not just to me. To something greater than the two of us."

In Austin's book, Bryce was the mysterious, cold and broody business guy you couldn't quite catch. But in his own book, his own story he pretty quickly became such an incredible easily lovable man . It's like through his whole story he's wearing his heart on his sleeve. You can't help to simply fall for him.
Whereas Austin's book was quite thrilling and full of suspense and fast

This one just wasn’t for me. It was about tycoon Bryce falls for beautician Tessa. He pretty much stalks her until she agrees to coffee. No harm, but if a guy sat outside my work for over an hour, watching and waiting, I’d call the cops on his ass!! 😂
I suppose it was different in that it wasn’t the girl chasing the sought after bachelor, but I just felt this story has been done before. There wasn’t anything new for me.

Bryce Sexton is the workaholic, the demanding one, the brother with no real personal life. As the oldest Sexton sibling the media empire his mother created has been in his hands since she passed, but with his father and stepmother threatening to throw it all away he's working harder and demanding more of everyone. He's working to keep her legacy alive, but he needs his brothers to help him do it. When sassy, beautiful Tessa catches his eye

Every once in awhile you get a book series that you just can't wait to read. This is one of those for me. I loved Austin but even in his book I was pulled to Bryce.

Here I get Bryce and he is even better than I thought he would be. Of course it wouldn't be one of the million socialites who fall over him nor is it one of the assistants that have tried or succeeded in bedding the boss. Nope Bryce decides to go for the ever sassy Tessa.

I have lived. I am living. Jeannine and Lauren have made my little heart happy! I knew I would love Bryce, but I didn't know that I'd love him this much. OH MY GOSH he surprised me in the most AH-MAZ-ING way. Ugh, he was everything and then some.

When I read Austin, I fell so hard for the middle Sexton brother. I didn't think he'd be replaced. But when his brooding and older brother, Bryce was introduced I found myself in

Whew, and I thought I loved Austin (book 1 of the Sexton Brothers). I’m not even sure I can post a review without spoilers which usually I have no problem doing, Bryce what did you do to me LOL. This is so a 5 star, the type of 5 star you will stay up until 3am reading! I not only fell in love with Bryce & Tessa’s relationship but also with Bryce & Charlie’s relationship!

Book two in the Sexton brother's series by co-authors Lauren Runow and Jeannine Colette features oldest brother Bryce Sexton.

The first thing I have to say about this book is that it is a must read. Especially for those who read and enjoyed Austin. Bryce cannot be missed. He was so much more than I expected him to be. He definitely was controlling and a workaholic. But he was also so loyal to his family and those he cared about. Plus, how do you not love a guy who's trying to keep his mother's le

Yes I sat down and devoured Bryce in an afternoon. This has been a highly anticipated read. I was SO in love with Austin’s book, book one of the Sexton Brothers. Bryce and Tessa have a beautiful, emotional, and definitely sexy story to tell. Plan for some swoon worthy moments. Words that resonates: “Treat a woman as if she is the breath you will take when you run out of your own.” (Sign) When you add family drama and unanswered questions, the intrigue only increases. Ugh of course you will fall ...more

Book 2 in the Sexton Brothers series and it was a well awaited one on my part.
Bryce got my attention loud and clear from Austin’s book and I couldn’t shake that longing feeling off and just wanted more and more of him.
They say that good things are worth waiting for and Bryce sure was one of those.
The man has it all quite literally if you ask me.

I fell in for him and I fell hard.
Tessa is such a sweet woman and a loving mother to her little baby boy.
The way she is putting him and others before her

If you thought Austin Sexton was the only Sexton brother you’d ever need to read about, just wait until you read Bryce’s story. He’s definitely everything you’d ever want in a book boyfriend.

When Tessa accidentally runs into the mega successful hottie , Bryce, she’s sure he’s just another spoiled rich kid, only after one thing. But Tessa doesn’t need a man in her life, that spots already taken with her five year old son Charlie.

Day by day, Bryce soon wins Tessa’s trust........and her heart.

Book 2 and this series just got a hell of a lot better.

I honestly didn't like Bryce at all in the first book. His attitude towards Austin was downright condescending and I hated him for it. But after finishing this book I can say I couldn't have been more wrong about him. I kinda felt bad for my dislike when we got to read what his plans were while his mother was still alive. I loved how his love for Tessa and her son made him want to change his life for the better. And I loved Tessa that desp

Truth- I didn’t think I could love these Sexton men more then I already have and yet here we are, Bryce is a man that will have you swooning and falling for hard and fast. Tessa is a single mom that has just enough room for Charlie in her heart until a Sexton man nuzzles his way in. The connection is instantaneous but what had me grinning ear to ear is their conversations, I want those.

I was given an advanced readers copy of this book and have decided to leave a voluntary honest review.

I understand him a lot better. The man has so much deal with he is basically married to his job. So when he meets Tessa it's such nice change to see him change his ways a bit.

I really liked and was drawn to Bryce whilst I was reading the first book, Austin.

I completely loved him by the end of Bryce.

This story is on the same time line as Austin, so you can read this without reading the first book

Bryce Sexton is all kinds of swoonworthy. It was great to get to the man behind the suit (and oh my, what a man behind that suit!). He came across as a bit cold in the first book, but all we saw was the business man.

Now he has met Tessa, the on

Patricia Rohrs (words we love by blog)
Bryce is definitely one swoon worthy man! If I met someone who allowed me to make him up like a clown just to talk yup I’d fall hard and fast but thankfully Tessa is strong willed woman!

Bryce and Tessa had a very exciting first meeting and though they had hurdles to overcome they both did it together! Each one had to compromise and give a little of themselves but in the end matters of the heart were to important and it was worth it!
Bryce is trying to hold on to his family media empire while fighting with his father and step monster over the company. Tessa is a single mom of a 5 year old trying to build her new life in San Francisco. A chance meeting on a rooftop has Bryce chasing her like he has never chased a woman in his life. I can't wait for the third brother's book.

Things I loved about this book: truth or dare, classic literature references, a man who cooks, funky t-shirts, and the romance.

I was looking forward to Bryce's book and it did not disappoint. Ms. Runow and Ms. Colette really capture you from the first book in this series and Book 2 is no exception. You are taken from the first page and I am still in this world. The story is full of emotions. This book helped me to understand Bryce more, which is why I was looking forward to reading his story. I am now anxiously awaiting the next installment in this series. This is definitely a must read.

Then he meets this sweet girl up on a rooftop where they are both trying to escape the party downstairs.

I was given this ARC to read for an honest review. Well, Lauren Runow and Jeannie Colette has done it again with the Sexton Brother's book 2. I wasn't expecting to love Bryce's story as much as I did. An it has been hard to write this review. I feel so bad that I have been delaying writing it. I haven't been able to really find the right words. The story between Tessa and Bryce is sweet,funny and believable. Parts of it makes me think of some of my favorite classic movies.
