The sexiest Christmas there ever was, and I am not lying🎄I was literally fanning myself after just about every chapter, which would be told from the viewpoint of a different couple.

I love that Jeanne wrote this book. The Bryson family is one of my favorite families of all time and to be able to get a glimpse of their life a couple of years down the road, living happily with their little families is just perfection. And I am so so so happy that Teddy got his official happily ending and that Matt
Oh how I enjoyed getting a glimpse into the lives of the Bryson family. This was everything you loved about the original books with a bonus that the whole family was involved. If your a fan of the Brothers in Blue just one click this book, you won’t be disappointed. This book had me laughing out loud ❤️

There is no better way to celebrate the holidays than by getting a glimpse into the lives of those who the reader watched fall in love in their original books. Mayhem and love are the two items interwoven in the Bryson family. Whether it be the children or the pets it was a joy to follow up with Max/Amanda, Marc/Leah, Matt/Carly as well as Teddy/Adam. I loved that the relationships had grown stronger with age but the alpha tendencies did not waiver. I completely entertaining holiday book. And I ...more

If I could give this book 100 stars, I would. Jeanne St. James has once again made us lose our hearts and souls to the Bryson brothers and make us wish that we were a part of their family and their little town of Manning Grove. We first met the Bryson brothers in the Brothers in Blue series. As you may recall, Max Bryson is married to Amanda, Mark is married to Leah, and Matt is married to Carly. The Bryson Family Christmas gives us an opportunity to catch up with these amazing couples, as well ...more

There is Not really much to write here about this book other than was a short and sweet catch up on the Bryson family ... and Teddy.. :) .. honestly Ms. James did an amazing job gathering the family for a very special Christmas......such an amazing family dynamic with The Bryson's.

The Bryson Family is the definition of what family should be! Loving, protective, accepting, supportive, tough love and so much more!

This book was everything. Giving us a chance to reconnect with the family and see where everyone is at in their lives. Falling in love with the three brothers again was so much fun. Teddy!! Oh that man is just out of this world amazing.

I laughed, I cried and I laughed some more. Jeanne St. James is just a literary goddess. She tells the most beautiful, real stori

This is the book that keeps on giving. It is not just to warm you up on cold winter nights during the holidays but year-round. It is so good to be back in Manning Grove with the Brysons: Max, Marc, Matt and their spouses: Amanda, Leah and Carly, to see where life has taken our favorite family. This is one book that readers have been craving and Jeanne St. James has once again delivered another wonderful storyline filled with all the feels that can be attributed to the festive holiday season and ...more

I absolutely loved going back To Manning Grove and visiting the Bryson family! It was great seeing the couples and their children! They were so entertaining! I also loved seeing Teddy and Adam. They make a great couple! This story had me laughing and crying then laughing some more. We got a look into Ron and Mary Ann. It’s so nice to see a couple still so in love after so many years together. I loved Greg! He is so hilarious! This book was an absolutely wonderful Christmas story with a few surpr ...more

If you've read the Brothers in Blue Series, (which you really should have done by now!!) then you are going to LOVE this sneak peek at what they have been up to! We get all the smoking hotness we expect from those yummy Bryson Bucks! Max and Marc and Matt all show us that years passing doesn't mean the passion and fire goes, it just grows and changes. I loved the peek into each of the relationships and especially Teddy and Adam, who honestly to me were the best part of this visit to our Brothers ...more

Jeanne St James does it again! It isn't often that you find an author who can go back to a series and write a follow up/Christmas special that matches the series perfectly. Ms St James accomplished it with ease. This truly felt like a fourth bonus book that brought all the Christmas feels! We get to see how everyone is getting on all these years later. A special Christmas surprise is being plotted and planned. Life is good but crazy when you have a large family like the Brysons. This was simply ...more

I absolutely loved the Bryson Family when I first read the Brothers in Blue series back when each of the stories were released. I've enjoyed getting glimpses of a reunion with a few of them in the Blood Fury MC series. However, I have missed the rest of the family though and have been craving a story catching up with the whole family. True to the brothers' original stories, this one had all the feels. I laughed and I cried, all of which brought on feel good and happy feelings. I would highly rec ...more

What can I say about Brothers In Blue: A Bryson Family Christmas by Jeanne St. James? It is a fantastic book that brings you back to the beginning. The couples all share memories that we read about in their previous stories. But it was so nice to see it through eyes that have matured and grown in love. The humor found in the pages were spot on. And I liked how it ended. I was glad to read we haven't seen the last of them. I do hope Jet is going to get her own story. You will most definitely want ...more

The Brothers In Blue series was the first i read from Jeanne St James. These brothers have a very special place in my heart. Max is still in my top five book boyfriends. Marc and Matt are in my top ten. Teddy is in my top five book besties. I was thrilled when Ms St James announced a Christmas follow up. To visit these boys (men) again made me so giddy with excitement. This revisit do not diappoint. In these pages we get to see where they are on their HEAs. Children, dogs and havoc that is their ...more

The Bryson’s is where it all started and going back there is amazing. Getting to see everyone again was so much fun. I love that we get to catch up with the families, their kids, what's happening in their lives. You will be flipping the pages so fast you won’t realize you’ve come to the end of the book. You will laugh, cry from laughing so hard and maybe even scream, you know in a good way, wink wink!! What a great way to start off the holiday season with the Bryon’s.

This wonderful read was a true gift to readers that have enjoyed the Brothers In Blue series. I highly recommend reading the other books first because I do not feel that this would read very well as a standalone book. I loved seeing all the old favorites again and learning what they had been up to. As if that wasn't awesome enough, a lovely sprinkling of holiday cheer makes everything just a little bit more fun and sweeter. A truly terrific book that gives you lots of feels, Christmas charm and ...more

Wonderful Treat!
This story was so much fun and so heartwarming. It was great to catch up with the whole family and see all the kids. Each couple has great chemistry and is fun and sexy and full of love. No spoilers but the Christmas day event was amazing. I can picture how beautiful it would be. Love that there was a Ron and MaryAnn chapter too. Great book for Jeanne/Bryson fans and if you havent read the original Brother in Blue trilogy--WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? GO READ IT RIGHT NOW! And then one

What fun! Like Christmas Eve and Christmas Day always are: family and food, Santa and snow, wishes and in this case a wedding. A time to review the past and dream of the future while planning the day! Mishaps; whining; small, preteen, and grown children being corrected. New in-laws, new babies, and new puppies being added to the mix! The author lets you share the smiles and the sugar (sex) and also the tears and toasts! This family's traditions are deep: service in the Marines, the local police ...more

Gotta say, I love me some Brysons and this book brings the entire family together for a magical Christmas. This family of amazing brothers and their equally amazing significant others are always a treat to read about. In this book we get little snippets of each brother and their families. Oh, and of course it wouldn’t be a Bryson book without Teddy, he’s the best! Love this book and can’t wait for more Bryson yumminess!

This book, a follow up to the Brothers in Blue series focussing on the three Bryson brothers, is so amazing. Even though you get snippets of the Bryson's in the Blood Fury books, this book catches you up with the family. The book gives you tears, and so much laughter that's common in Bryson books. It also sets you up for more. If you've read the original books don't miss this. If you haven't read the other books, what are you waiting for???

Let me just say Jeanne St James never disappoints in her writing. I have loved every book I have read of hers and this one was going back to re-visit the Bryson clan, Brother’s in Blue, and lets just say it was awesome. I laughed so Much during this re-visit. Oh to be a part of this family if it was real. So much love, laughter and heart with this family it just makes you want to be right there with them.
If you have not red any of Jeanne’s books you are truly missing out.

I had to wait until November...

I’m so happy I waited until November to read this gem of a book. This was an amazing tie-up of all the Brysons. I can only hope Jet has a book of her own. Lots of giggles and happy tears in this book. I hope this is a sign that the end of 2020 doesn’t end in as much of a shit show as it started. Here’s hoping everyone has a great holiday season like the Brysons did!

I loved going back to the the Bryson’s! It was fun to see how everyone turned out and how the brothers are as dads. Of course you get Ron and Mary also. Ron is such a hoot!! We also get to check up on Teddy! He is such a scene stealer! Oh and Greg with his sporadic swearing! Add in the dogs and it’s just so funny!! However it’s also very sexy too! A must read!

What a wonderful story bringing the Bryson Brother's and their women together for the Christmas Holiday! Oh, we can't forget Teddy and Adam, it just wouldn't be the same without Teddy! This well written story and the family from Manning Grove was such a delightful read that I couldn't put it down until the very last page was read!

Lord, I have been so excited for this book and certainly was NOT disappointed! I love the Bryson's, Greg, Teddy, and all the accompanying dogs. Getting everyone's POV was wonderful, the hilariously funny banter, all the sexy times, and the snarky Hannah lol made this so much fun to read. I definitely can not get enough of this family and did not want it to end.

Oh I love the Brysons! This novel is a perfect way to catch up with the favorite family that I've been missing. They are so funny and down to earth. This is a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays.
I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a great read. I received this ARC in return for an honest review.
