REVIEW: Bryce by Jeannine Colette & Lauren Runow.



Title: Bryce

Author: Jeannine Colette

Author: Lauren Runow

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publication Date: Sept 20, 2018

See what our team is saying about Bryce


Tessa, a strong feminine role with the most adorable little lad. Weary of Bryce and his feelings for her, until she decides to go all in. Bryce, hardworking, head of the family and the world on his shouler's. The family drama continues and the future still unsure. Who knows what Missy's end game is? But, maybe now Tanner is joining the ranks we'll get some answers. A great story of a workaholic and a single mum finding their connection on a rooftop, filling their time with truth and dares and a love of superheroes. Not quite as intense as Austin's story, but just as good.


This one just wasn’t for me. It was about tycoon Bryce falls for beautician Tessa. He pretty much stalks her until she agrees to coffee. No harm, but if a guy sat outside my work for over an hour, watching and waiting, I’d call the cops on his ass!! 😂 I suppose it was different in that it wasn’t the girl chasing the sought after bachelor, but I just felt this story has been done before. There wasn’t anything new for me.


Bryce Sexton is one lovable jerk that I couldn't get enough of. Tessa was a strong female character, that only wanted the best for her son. A chance meeting and game of Truth or Dare has Bryce loosing his usual control on his life, and has Tessa starting to let someone in. The writing and characters were well written. And I can't wait to get my hands on the other Sexton brothers books. Each of the brothers do seem to have interesting stories to tell. The other characters will have your emotions going up and down. From Bryce's father being someone that you will want to smack some sense into. Then there's Missy, Bryce's step-mom that you will want to beat the crap out of from the first moment you meet her. This was a new author team for me and I cannot wait to read more by these two. I have a feeling that the brothers books will have me engrossed just like Bryce and Tessa's story had me.


In Austin's book, Bryce was cold, focused on the company and didn't want to hear about Austin's excuses for not giving more than 100% to the company. In his book, Bryce is definitely not a cold man but a man passionate about keeping his mom's dream alive. Tessa is focused on raising her son and her world was thrown off kilter after a chance encounter with Bryce. Bryce knew she was different and became persistent in his pursuit but not aggressive. He was sweet, patient and let Tessa set the pace. Wonderful book!



“Truth or dare?” “I’ll take your dare.” “Kiss me.” I don’t believe in Prince Charming, but when I met a handsome stranger on a rooftop his words intrigued me and his dares left nothing but temptation. Then I learned the truth. His name is Bryce Sexton. Media mogul, workaholic and a heart of stone. He’s broody AF and yet every woman in San Francisco wants him. So why won’t he leave me alone? Wherever I go, he’s there, trying to force his way into my world. What he doesn’t know is I already have a man in my life. A tiny redhead who loves Legos and Superheroes. With every push, Bryce pulls me in further. Our pasts are laced with betrayal. Our futures are unpredictable. Our chemistry is explosive. With each dare I uncover a truth, but he's exactly what I don’t need right now. So why did I have to go and kiss him?
