Elite body guard /PI, Rick, and family lawyer, Abby, are both strong, stubborn well-rounded characters with a history that colors their perception of each other.
Rick is tasked with protecting Abby from a vengeful client’s husband. But untimely there is more going on. Abby is out to help those who need her regardless of the dangers. She doesn’t want Rick’s help. Until…
There are lots of twists and turns. I love an unpredictable tale. Not quite a thriller, but more than a mystery are tangled up in
Sheena ☆ Oh, the Sheenanigans!

This was a fine read and despite the notion that someone was out to get out lead heroine Abigail, there was much action or suspense to completely win me over. I will notate I did like the dynamic between Abby and Rick, and their whole enemies/friends turned lovers bit but its just… it lacked that something something to make this an excellent read. Nevertheless, this was a swoon worthy read filled with some fun banter, mature romance, steamy moments, and strong leads that would de

Abby is your classic no nonsense strong independent woman who happens to be a family lawyer that has built up her own practice. She’s use to dealing with all sorts of people through her work so she isn’t all that worried when an angry man bursts into her office threatening her. It’s happened before irate abusive spouses is just part of the job. But since her sister witnessed this incident her family gets very worried. She doesn’t believe she needs any protection until it becomes clear that maybe ...more

I thought that this was a really good story - I felt that it was very well written, it had a fast pace and I read it in one sitting.

The characters were strong and very well developed and the book had me hooked from the outset through to the excellent ending. I thought that the plot was excellent!

It is 5 stars from me for this one - it is definitely one I will be very highly recommending!

This book was so much fun to writer because when you take 2 powerfully independent ALPHA people and force them to be together and depend on one another, you can't help but have fun writing all the ways they avoid - and then eventually - come together! I hope you love Rick and Abby as much as I do. ...more

When domestic relations attorney Abby Laine, the epitome of a strong, sexy woman and Rick Bannerman, ex-military bodyguard and investigator meet, sparks fly all over the place. But their emotionally stunted childhoods give them no reason to think the other would stick around for the long haul. So instead of even hooking up they stay well away from each other. Unfortunately because Rick has known Abby’s brother-in-law since childhood there’s no way to escape numerous social gatherings where Abby ...more

Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via Cocktails and Books and Netgalley. The opinions expressed are my own.

Peggy Jaeger writes an intense and seductive story with suspense and intriguing characters. Rick works as a private investigator and bodyguard and he is the perfect protective alpha hero. However, his issues cause him to keep to himself and it is difficult for him to get close to people.

Rick and Abby have known each other for a few years

My favorite genre of reading is romance but what I love the most is a romance with a strong female character and this book gives you that. Abigail, or Abby as she likes to be called, is one of six girls in a family of strong women. They were raised by a single mother and experienced everything from homelessness to seeing their mother work 2 jobs to take care of them. Rick was brought up in much the same way. His father not only hit his mother but also was abusive with him and after his mother's ...more

Reading a Peggy Jaeger novel is a delightful experience, one that I highly recommend. I am amazed by the depth and breadth of the many series she has launched in the past six years. In A Pride of Brothers, she features two strong and sexy protagonists—Abigail Laine and Rick Bannerman—who struggle with abandonment issues from their troubled childhoods. But the sparks that fly cannot be ignored. And nor can the amped-up tension that kept me reading well into the night.

The characters are great and develop and grow throughout the story. The story line is interesting, well written and holds your attention from beginning to end. There's action, adventure, murder, suspense and drama that add to the depth of the story. Definitely recommend!

I feel like the title of the series was a little misleading as the book centered on Rick and Abby and didn't have much male support on the brotherhood front. Rick is a private investigator who works with Abby's brother in law's but there wasnt a while lot of involvement from them in this story. Possibly that will change going forward and I am interested to see where the author takes this series.

The book was well written and the characters remained true to who they were throughout the book. There

Solid 4.5 star
this is the first in the A Pride of Brothers series and I am already hooked as it has the perfect blend of mystery, suspense, lustful attraction and great characters. Rick and Abby are great as they are as stubborn as each other and don't like letting people in however their attraction to each other that has been viewing for the last 4 years is about to come ahead. I really enjoyed getting to know Abby and Rick as well as learning more about the others that work with Rick along wit

Lovely Familial dynamics; seven sisters - wow.

The main male and main female character`s were well described and did learn and grow throughout this story. Very good story that was well written and was so much more than `just`a romance tale; murder, mayhem, action, adventure, drama, trauma. Yet through all of this love bonding a family and then, the main male and female character`s.

Great reading that is highly recommended.

I LOVE this book! Both Abby and Rick have realistic problems but compassionate natures, and watching them learn to work out their problems was a joy. Their relationship is HOT! and also very romantic. The suspense is compelling and I found myself turning the pages quickly to find out how things would evolve, both for the suspense and for the romance. I am a fan of Peggy Jaeger's books and I think this one is my favorite (so far)! I give it an A+ ! ...more

I think this may be my new favorite series by Peggy Jaeger if this first book in her new series, A Pride of Brothers, is anything to go by. Rick is tough but so is Abby, and she doesn't need anyone to protect her. The back and forth and chemistry between these two is excellent and makes reading this book a joy. There's danger and steam and family and friends, all tied together in this story that will keep you turning the pages to reach the end. ...more

This is the 1st book I've read written by Peggy Jaeger; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

How many chances will Rick get to apologize or even show her he is sorry.
Refusing his protection and apology was the mist immature this she could of done
Now even though her heart is tempted to forgive him for his abandonment she may not get the chance.

But now, four years later, he moves in with her to keep her safe, as she is in great danger from someone who causes suspicious accidents and makes vicious attacks.

Rick and Abby are dancing around eachother for years and it isn't until Abbys live is in danger that something happens between them. for me an amazing story that I really enjoyed reading. It has al the right ingredients for a great book. Hot sexy Hero, strong stubborn Heroine, amazing chemistry between them, a little bit of suspense, a little bit of action a house pat, family drama and a lot of humor. An amazing book that I recommend reading.

Sweet and steamy romance with a strong female lead and alpha male. I wouldn't target anything as suspenseful, yea she's got a stalker type crazy after her, but you kind of know who and what and nothing puts you on the edge of your seat. but the relationship between Rick and Abby is great and well worth the read. ...more
