Brothers in Blue Series, Book 2
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 a HEA.

Another HOT book about a Bryson brother from Manning Grove!
BROTHERS IN BLUE: MARC (Brothers in Blue #2) by Jeanne St. James has the second Bryson brother having to train the new police recruit who just happens to be female. For an alpha male like Marc, who also happens to still believe there should not be any female officers, being made her FTO (field training officer) by his brother the chief seems like a sick joke.
Leah Grant is determined to be a police officer just like her deceased father. She has fought all the stereotypes and risen to the top of her training class to have no one but Max offer her a job. Manning Grove is a very small town to her old home of Philly, but she is determined to make it, even with the chauvinist beliefs of her FTO.
As Marc and Leah train and ride together, their chemistry starts to override their common sense. They try to keep their work life separate from their increasing attraction, but Marc wants her in his bed as much as Leah wants to prove she is as capable as any male officer. The taboo of trainer and trainee does not stop these two, but they do keep it out of work hours.
These two have explosive chemistry in bed and are so perfect for each other. There are explicit sex scenes that are well written and have a surprising appearance of nipple rings and other sex toys. I also loved that Leah stayed at Marc's parents' house when she moved to town so that we continue to be involved with the whole family from Max's story in Book #1. This romance can be read as a standalone because of its own HEA, but the family ties and small town life carry over.
I love that Ms. St. James has made each of these books in this series unique so far. I appreciate that they are not both the same premise with new names inserted. I am looking forward to what happens with the last Bryson boy, if he ever comes home!
