Brock by Roxanne St Claire

Book 5 of the 7 Brides for Blackthorne series. Can be read as a standalone contemporary romance. Mostly. Plenty of references to the brothers and cousins from the prior books in the series but easily introduced and understood.

Returning to the office in casual mode, Brock shares a cab and can’t resist the beautiful woman that’s afraid of the summer storm. When he finds out she’s writing a story about his family it’s difficult to remain hands off.
Jenna doesn’t resist the

4.5 - "Take a drink…" Stars!

Book five of the 7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes series gets us right back in the groove with the family brand manager Brock Blackthorne, taking on the challenge of his career. Namely with author Jenna Gillespie. The woman who simultaneously takes over his heart, while potentially writing a tell-all biography on the Blackthorne family that could taint an otherwise untarnished and closely managed legacy.

This is the first book I have read from this author and the first in this series. The Blackthornes are quite the family. This was a very interesting book. It grips you with a very interesting storyline and two amazing characters right from the start. Then the whole storyline is full of suspense, twists, turns and romance. Jenna is on town to get the story of the Blackthorns. But she doesn't want just any story. She wants the one that is going to make it or break it for her. The one that is going ...more

5 Star review Brock (7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes #5) by Roxanne St Claire
I have to say that I am really enjoying this series about the Blackthorne men and the women that capture their hearts. Each story is written by a different author and I love the diversity of the stories and the writing, with each author capturing the heart of the men they are writing about.

This time it is Brock and Jenna Gillespie’s story and I was captivated from the first chapter.
Brock seems to me to be the most serious

Roxanne St. Claire never fails to create interesting characters then surround them with intriguing stories that engage both my heart and my mind.

While Brock and Jenna both have lives very different from my own, I was able to relate to each of them and the challenges they faced. I adored Brock, especially when he threw off his corporate persona, donned his glasses (I do love a man in glasses), and let his hair down. I liked that St. Claire made him strong, but vulnerable. I loved his chemistry w

Brock is book five in the multi author series, Sever Brides for Seven Blackthornes, and each book can be read as a stand alone. This is the first of the series I have read so far, but it was still easy to follow the minor sub plot that ties them all together.

This is book 5 of this multi-author series but even though this is the first one I have read of this series I was not lost at all. This is a very close family of brothers and cousins who are committed to the Blackthorne name and it is Brock's job to protect the brand. What is he going to do when he meets Jenna who is writing a book on their family and her research may end up bringing down the family? This was such a great book and so much fun!

I enjoyed this fun read. Brock and jenna share good chemistry and a powerful attraction. I thought they were both very likable characters. I found the storyline to be quite entertaining with its blend of drama, romance, mystery, secrets and suspense. I really liked the push-pull between this couple's desire for each other and their desire to do their jobs. A very good read and a solid addition to this series. This is my independent, impartial review.

Another wonderful story by Roxanne St. Claire! Brock is another Blackthorne man who has fallen fast and hard for the new woman who has walked into his life. Brock and Jenna have instant sizzling chemistry the moment they meet. Their story has romance, mystery, and humor with a touch of suspense that makes it the perfect read. I loved both of these characters and their story from the first page to the last!

Brock is book five in this multi author series but without having read any of the prior books I was able to easily follow the story. The entire series is about the influential Blackthorne family with deep roots in the whiskey industry. Brock's story is packed full of family history with secrets revealed and a bit of suspense. The slow build romance between Brock and Jenna is heartwarming and fun. I'm definitely hooked now and have to read more about these Blackthornes! I highly recommend this bo ...more

The oh so satisfying fifth book in a seven book multi-author series, Brock had all of the heat and heart I expect from Roxanne St. Claire’s fantabulous writing–along with even a touch of family mystery to make it all the more interesting.

I had a ridiculous amount of fun reading Brock. Which, by the way, can be read as a standalone *or* as part of this 7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes series. And what a list of authors we have who each contributed a book to it

Let me start out by saying I’m a huge Roxanne St. Clair fan. I’ve read all of her Moonlight Bay and Dogfather series books. When I received an email from her encouraging me to read the Seven Brides for Seven Blackthornes series for which she authored this book, I didn’t hesitate to drop $20.00 for the first five book set. So it pains me to say this book is really weak. The story line is built on so many ridiculous premises and so full of plot holes its beyond unbelievable even for the contempora ...more

So far, I’m loving this series as a whole. The characters are lovable, and despite the fact that they are stubborn men, they aren’t afraid to face life’s truths and learn and grow. The family history is a bit murky and sordid, but they love being Blackthornes.

Being a Blackthorne means more than money. It means that they are a part of a family that has lived, loved, and lost, but managed to stay together…at least for now. And for Brock Blackthorne, having a family that is always there for him no

This book is my favorite in the series so far!

Brock and Jenna have an adorable and steamy meet-cute, which makes you eager to see where this will go. Not very far, at first, as they soon realize that Jenna is aiming to write an exposé about the Blackthorne family. Brock reluctantly agrees, hoping to retain some control of its contents and the way it will present the family and brand. There is still a lot of chemistry there, though, and spending all that time together allows them to get to know e

7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes – just the name Blackthorne raises images of sexy, wealthy men who know what they want, yet have a soft vulnerable side when it comes to their emotions. Brock certainly fits that image. He is book 5 of this multi-author series and Roxanne St. Claire certainly exceeds readers’ expectations of romance and passion with a splash of mystery. (A splash because after all, this book is about the Blackthorne Brand and the whisky they make.) This book engaged me from the very b ...more
