BROCK by Kris Michaels - Brock King is a hot, smart & sexy homicide detective with the Hope City PD. He gets called out to what turns out to be a very high profile case. His partner gets tagged by the FBI to help with a case, so Brock gets a temp partner who is new with HCPD, is smart, sexy and has an ex that is harassing her and she has an interesting background. They have to work together to find the killer and figure out their attraction. There are plenty of twists and turns and family interaction. Kris Michaels is amazing at this kind of book - there are so many twists and turns, and you just know you’ve figured it out, but did you? Ms. Michaels is a master. It’s an awesome book and I can’t wait for her next installment.
SEAN by Maryann Jordan - Sean McBride is quiet, hot and smart, he ask a detective with the HCPD working arson cases. He runs into his best friend of 30 yrs at a fire scene with a dead body, but the case takes them in different directions. The db isn’t from the fire (so Brock follows that since he’s Homicide), and Sean takes the fire. But it’s not his serial arsonist, and that’s his major case right now. However going back to check a crime scene he comes across Harper Walsh, an insurance agency fire inspector, and inadvertently startled her, causing her to break her arm. This starts a chain of events that causes them to spend more time together and discuss the case and follow up on their attraction. Maryann Jordan is fabulous at writing in a way that gives clues and breadcrumbs, but keeps the answer just out of your reach. It’s such a great book and I can’t wait for the next McBride Hope City Book!
The thing with this Michaels-Jordan Hope City World is that the way they write it, the characters cross into each book, the cases cross over, and it is seamless. It’s definitely a world you want to be in, you’ll love it. And who knows maybe some other names you might recognize from their other worlds might come up, who knows with these two amazing ladies...
By Kris Michaels
This story is a great lead in to this new series.
The suspense aspect keeps you guessing every time you turn the page. There are so many possibilities that you really can't figure things out until they are revealed.
The romance pulls you in. Kallie and Brock are a great couple who have chemistry from their first meeting. I love the way despite Kallie has been through the wringer she is still fighting and refuses to give up. I always love the strong heroines.
The many characters introduced give plenty of future potential for this series. Kris leaves me anxious for Brody's story with the way the book ends. I can't wait to read the next installment!
By Maryann Jordan
As with the first book in ther series this book draws you in. I love the closeness of the two families and how well these two authors have integrated the other's characters into their stories.
Sean and Harper are a great couple. I love how they are both in the fire investigation field, but from different perspectives. This book had me going back and forth on who the arsonist could be throughout the story. The connection that these two had was so natural from the beginning.
The way these two authors are writing these books keeps their work their own while paying homage to the other. It all works very well.
It was fabulous to read the subtle mentions of his King cousins and their relationship explained. There is such a seamless blending while still remaining separate and distinct series.
Sean McBride, an Arson detective and Brock’s best friend since childhood meets Harper, an insurance investigator, at an arson scene with a not so uneventful outcome.
The dynamic between Sean and Harper is rather sweet and they both have traits that nurture each other. Their relationship grows as they solve the mystery. Sean’s story blends well with Brock’s and there is such exciting potential for development in future books.

Brock. Not just the poor cousins of the high flying Guardian King, Brock found his calling as a dectictive. Poor psy, long hours, constant pressure, thank less work and no one outside his bouble to share it with. He accepts and lives for it. Of course he has an equal. Coming to Hope City for a second chance Kallie hope to get her career back on track after breaking the code of silence. Most times opposites attract but rarely two like minded people are just a compatible and steel sharpens steel making each stronger.
Sean. Methodical, responsible, and all round good guy Sean makes a terrible first impression on Harper. The rest is history. That is 9nly half the story of the book. This book is a great mystery investigation with a number of suspects that kept me guessing.
Both books lead on to other members of the King and McBride family. Good setup for the next book and I will not be at all surprised to see returning and recurring characters supporting and developing this series.
BROCK by Kris Michaels
Brook is a strong, intelligent and driven police detective. There is a fire and a body is found so Brock is bought in on the investigation and his normal partner is pulled to another case so he is temporarily assigned Kallie, a new detective to HCPD. The chemistry between the two of them is off the charts and their resolve to solve the case leads them on a journey that changes their lives. We meet his family and friends as this starts our Hope City adventures. This was a brilliant book and both the characters and story are an exciting read and leave you wanting more.
SEAN by Maryann Jordan
His beginning is the fire that had a murder victim. Sean is a knowledgeable, strong willed and determined Arson Detective. While the characters and stories do cross each other, Sean is actually investigating a serial arsonist. He comes across Harper who works for the insurance company and ends up taking her to the ER for her wrist injury. These two people have a great chemistry and decide to explore their attraction to each other. There is lots of mystery and discovery for this incredible couple. It was great how the characters from both books interact with each other in both stories.
Both books were brilliant to read and I was not disappointed, I can't wait for the next two books, keep up the fantastic work ladies!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brock - a brilliant, gritty suspense thriller that had me hooked and guessing from the start. Brock King is a dedicated homicide detective, who operates on too little sleep, too much caffeine & a non existent personal life. He’s also sexy & smart, doesn’t always make nice but he does get the job done. Temporarily partnered with equally dedicated Detective Kallie Redman to solve a high profile murder, Brock soon starts to wonder if theirs can be more than just a working relationship. Kallie has plenty of ghosts from her past including an ex-cop, ex-husband who left her personal & professional life in tatters but she survived, grew stronger & is now returning to the job she excelled at. Smart, sexy & honest Kallie’s addiction to caffeine rivals Brock’s & they instantly gel as both work partners & on a much more personal level. As they follow the evidence & join the dots to solve the case can these two perfectly imperfect characters find their own HEA?
It was a great story that I thoroughly enjoyed, plenty of suspense, an intriguing twisting turning plot (I couldn’t guess), heat, laughter & wonderful characters including Brock’s fabulous mother with the added bonus of a link to Guardian - perfect! Can’t wait fro Brody’s story!
Sean - a clever plot with plenty of intrigue to keep you guessing, I had three or four suspects lined up but didn’t get it until the arsonist was revealed! Gorgeous arson detective Sean McBride is brooding over an unsolved serial arson investigation when he meets spirited insurance fire investigator Harper Walsh as she literally falls at his feet at an arson site. Both feel an instant attraction but circle each other a little warily while sharing their findings before realising they are kindred spirits & perfect for each other. In Harper, Sean has someone who understands both him and his job, while Harper loves the fact that Sean really listens & gets her. These two are a great match, Sean is reserved but focused & knows what he wants, Harper is smart & determined, comfortable with who she is & what she wants.
Sean painstakingly pieces together the clues to trace the arsonist but will he be in time to save Harper when her life is on the line?
A great, very enjoyable story full of suspense, heat, wonderful characters & humour provided by friends & a large, full-on family!
There are now so many characters in Hope City I want stories for, this is already a fabulous series & is only going to get better.
I received this book as an ARC & have voluntarily reviewed it, all views expressed are my own.
Brock King was what you expect from an overworked detective working a high profiled case with no lead, little sleep and not enough coffee.....grumpy. Kallie comes along like a breathe of fresh air. She is intelligent, beautiful and a damn good detective just want Brock needs in his life.
Kallie and Brocks relationship progressed a little quicker than I anticipated which made the story alittle less realistic for me however did not devalue the amazing writing and plot.
Maryann was new to me so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from her writing however if I'm honest I actually enjoyed Sean's story more than Brocks. Both had strong male characters who were read for something real..... Enter hot intelligent woman stage left. Kallie and Harper these women were fun, sassy and good at there job. Sean and Harpers story moved at a great pace, the relationship developed with common interests and attraction. A very realistic plot following arson, insurance and investigators.
I thoroughly enjoyed this glimpse into Hope City and cant wait for Carter's book.
Both the eldest of multiple kids they are serious, driven, Alphas but both meet their matches and are brought to their knees by sassy, smart women. Sparks? Hell, more like a raging inferno! Lots of fireworks, crazy sibling antics, sexy dirty talk, interfering parents, steamy sex and investigation work, with a few twists thrown in for good measure. I loved both these couples, their chemistry was believable but the intertwining plots were better. I am hoping this series is focussing fully on the 11 siblings from the King and McBride family's as the family dynamics and sibling banter create the perfect support cast and base.
Well done ladies you have another hit here!
I have also started reading Maryann Jordan’s books found Sean to be amazing this also dragged you in & didn’t want to put it down.
I cannot wait got the next in this series.
