From 17 Reviews

Meet the men of Manning Grove, three small-town cops and brothers, who meet the women who will change the rest of their lives. This is Marc’s story…

Officer Marc Bryson doesn’t believe women should be in law enforcement. Ever. When his older brother, Max, is promoted to the small town’s police chief the first thing he does is hire a woman fresh out of the academy. Then makes Marc her Field Training Officer.

Determined to follow in her late father’s footsteps, Leah Grant has the moxie to break any glass ceiling that stands in the way from becoming a police officer. Even if that means proving to her coach—who only wants her in his bed and not in the field—she’s worthy of being a permanent member of the force.

Working in a man’s world, Leah challenges Marc’s misconceptions about women in the line of duty. But as they struggle to separate their work life from their undeniable chemistry, things continue to steam up and get a little kinky. These two officers of the law must toe the line after being caught red-handed.

In the end, can Leah prove to Marc that she is good as backup as well as in bed?

Note: This book can be read as a standalone and has an HEA.

Warning: This is a steamy story that include fun, but explicit, sex that includes handcuffs, neckties, and nipple rings! It is intended for readers over 18 years old.

Fun, Fasr, Read

by Lbry2602

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 by Jeanne St James, and won't be the last.

Do women belong on the force? Yes!

by Dianna W.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. l Loved this book. Boy was it steamy. I had to almost take a shower after reading this book. The chemistry between the two main characters was off the charts. Both were very strong willed. Marc and Leah both cops, Marc was her FTO, and Leah the new copy on the force. Boom! She take no sh#$ from anyone including Marc. He thinks that women don't belong on the force and she is going to prove him wrong. Now on to the other two books.

I absolutely loved Leah and Marc. I have not read Max and Amanda’s story yet, but I need to. You can’t even imagine how impatient I am for Matt's story to come out. You will not regret reading this book. It was sweet as all get out and hot as hell. I highly recommend this book and pretty much every other book by Jeanne St. James. Happy reading!

Is She Enough?

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Marc and his two brothers are ready to begin the rest of their lives. In this book we meet and discover Marc's story. He's made Chief of police in their town and the first thing he does is employ a fresh out of academy recruit called Leah. Her father was also in the police force so she has a lot to live up to. The attraction between Marc and Leah is off the charts, but is it enough? He wants her in his bed but she wants more. Can she change his mind? A fast paced. steamy love story that captured my imagination at the beginning and held it to the end. A great short read. Recommended.

Women 2, Men 0

by John L

This is the second book in Jeanne St. James' series that I have read, and all I can say is "there must be something in the water" in that small little town, because the men and women there certainly seem to be as randy and horny as rabbits. Which is a good thing for readers wanting a hot juicy taste of erotica, which the author delivers in vivid details. It was also a not-so-subtle smack back at the chauvinistic men still around who think a woman's place is in the kitchen and in the bedroom. But, I liked this book even better than the first one because it seemed to have even more laugh out-loud moments and situations in it, at least for me. I would NEVER be able to read this in a crowded location - like EVER, it was too good and fun to read quietly. I am definitely looking at getting my hands on book #3 and adding it to my TBR pile.

Awesome book!!!!!

by Tresha

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I loved this book. It had everything in it, love, a little jealousy, frustration, and lots of humor. Leigh and Marc had an intense connection. They loved trading barbs with one another or anyone else. The story pulled me in, and I couldn't put it down! If you need a good book to curl up with this is it!!!

Loved this book

by Anonymous

I absolutely loved this book. It was amazing. I read book 1 and it was awesome. Book 2, Marc, is just as awesome. I recommend reading book 1 first, because Marc then makes more sense in spots. But you don't have to. It stands alone just fine. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book in exchange for a free copy.

WOW! This is a sweet and hot romance!

by Lene Norway

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. And just let me say, the second brother in blue is just as hot as the first!

When Marc meets Leah it insta attraction and they can hardly keep their hands off eachother. But Leah is a Rookie and Marc is her Field Training Officer, and 60 days suddenly feels like 2 years.

This story is a sweet, sexy, engrossing and heartfelt. The plot is fresh and a perfect sequel to the first brothers in blue book. Even though reading the first book will only heightens the experience, this is a standalone!

If you enjoy your love stories with a strong, beautiful and strongheaded young woman and a handsome sexy alpha male, then you'll get a kick out of this one.

I enjoyed the protagonists immensely but I just loved Pop, Amanda and Teddy.

When Two Alphas Meet

by S Lange

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

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 police department in Manning Grove. She is excited about being able to follow in her father’s footsteps and starting to make a dent in her student loans.

Marc is totally against women being in uniform. He feels that they are not physically able to handle the more physical aspect of the job. His chief has informed him that he will be training the new female recruit for the next two months and he’s not pleased. He intends to make sure she follows every rule and will give demerits for any mess-ups.

Marc and Leah have instant chemistry and both are trying to pretend that they are not taking sneak peaks at each other.

While Leah is strong willed and able to handle herself there is a vulnerable side to her also. She is more reserved but not a push over. She is very professional in her job. She also has no problem going after some much needed relief when a certain someone pushes her to the limit.

Marc even thou his character spouts the usual woman shouldn’t be police officers his actions except for the first day shows what’s really underneath. Marc is very protective of women. His main concern is that they may be hurt on the job and is worried that he may not be able to forgive himself if they are hurt while protecting him. He does bluster a lot but thankfully his character shows a lot of depth and concern and knows when to hold his thoughts or was that because he was threatened with bodily harm from the women in his life.

As he is her training officer Marc knows that he should stay away, however their mutual attraction makes it very hard for him to keep their relationship strictly professional.

There are so many laugh out loud moments in this book. As Marc is trying his best to not think of Leah in a sexual manner he distracts himself by naming parts of a pig. Leah also has her share of feisty inner dialogue that makes you snort. Marc’s family is warm loving and downright hysterical. The town’s people are such characters that you feel a kinship to all of them.

This was a great read with fully developed characters that were both strong and vulnerable at varying times. I bonded with both of them. Loved how much of a boy Marc really is and how strong and sweet Leah is. Jeanne St. James definitely one of my new favorite authors.

I liked this book, but there were pieces of the book that left me confused at times. I had to go back and reread parts. It is a good book. Love the premise. Just missing something
