I just recently started a new contemporary romance book series that I absolutely LOVE and wanted to share it with my readers. Book one was Alpha Barman which came out in May of 2017. It’s all about, you guessed it, alpha men! Book two just came out last month and so far, I am enjoying Alpha Chef just as much as I did the first book! Scroll down for a blurb about each one. The books are heavy on plot with just the right amount of romance and action. There better be a book three or I am going to be bummed! More on the books below, as well as some buy links if you want to join me in this awesome series. Check out my review of Letters from a Cowboy if you want more books by Sue Brown to enjoy.

Contemporary Romance Book Series: J.T.’s Bar
About Alpha Barman
Jake Tyler walked out of Covert Ops two years ago, a devastated, broken man after he discovered his sister brutally murdered by her husband, Riley. Since then he’s found a kind of peace running a rural bar. The last thing Jake Tyler expects is his former team to turn up with grim news. Jake’s ex-brother-in-law has escaped from prison and is heading Jake’s way. The team is here to protect Jake, whether he likes it or not – a decision reluctantly shared by their leader, Jake’s ex-lover Mitch Mitchelson. Mitch is angry and hurting. The man he trusted – the man he adored more than anything – abandoned both his team and Mitch. Jake never gave Mitch a chance to help or come to terms with his desertion. Regardless of mission protocols, Mitch isn’t about to open his heart again to that kind of pain. But the strong attraction between them can’t be denied. How are they ever going to work together when Mitch still resents Jake’s disappearance, and to Jake, the team represents everything that destroyed him in the first place? And meantime they wait for Riley to find them… and to settle the threat once and for all.
My take on it: LOVED it. Amazing characters who had such incredible camaraderie with each other. I wanted a bit more romance between Mitch and Jake but the action and plot development kept me plenty interested. Interested enough to buy the second book in the series as soon as I was done with it!
About Alpha Chef
When Greg Mitchelson’s home is torched and his employer killed, Greg fears it’s retribution for his past testimony against a notorious drug gang. Alone, with no money and only the clothes on his back, Greg turns to Colm Riordan, the Deputy US Marshall who’s protected Greg for the last 3 years. But Riordan doesn’t return Greg’s phone calls, and the local Marshal’s office refuses to help him.
In desperation, Greg goes on the run to Wyoming to find his brother, Mitch, whom he hasn’t seen in over a decade. As he reconnects with his brother, Riordan appears, searching for his missing witness. But Greg needs the answers to a lot of questions before he’ll trust Riordan again. Why didn’t he return Greg’s call? Is Riordan there to help Greg – or kill him?
My take on this one: Still in progress but so far I am enjoying it just as much as the first. Plenty of guessing going on in the beginning of the story to keep you turning the pages and you get all the other characters from book one thrown in as well. Loved seeing their story continue and am really looking forward to book three.
This contemporary romance book series is heavy on plot development and the interactions between the characters themselves. The romance takes a back seat here. I have enjoyed the author’s other books and this series seems to be similar in terms of plot, character, and romance development. Overall, I was impressed!
