Brock Blackthorne is the keeper of the family brand and he takes that role seriously. His job is to protect the Blackthorne image, to keep the company’s reputation as clean as possible, and ensure that skeletons stay well-hidden at the family compound in King Harbor, Maine. So when an ambitious and inquisitive biographer is tasked to pen an “authorized” profile of the Blackthornes, Brock is forced to personally guide the beautiful writer far away from any family landmines. But the more time he spends sharing the history and heart of his unusual clan, the more he realizes how much he wants this captivating woman in his arms…and in his life.
The daughter of renowned investigative reporters, Jenna Gillespie has a lot to prove when she takes on the task of writing the first in-depth biography of one of America’s wealthiest families. Raised to question every source and burned by the last one she trusted, Jenna seethes with resentment toward the maddeningly sexy Brock Blackthorne. Not only does he detour her every time she attempts to discover the real story about the family’s multi-million dollar whisky making recipe, but he also has her feeling things that threaten the walls she’s built to protect a few secrets of her own.
As Jenna gets closer to what she believes is a shocking truth, she has to trust the one person whose job it is to see her fail. And if Brock allows her into the inner-workings of the business and family, he has to believe she won’t betray him. There is much more than pride at stake when these two give up the control they cherish…there is a chance for a lifetime of love.
NICUnurse’s Review of Brock by Roxanne St. Claire
So far, I’m loving this series as a whole. The characters are lovable, and despite the fact that they are stubborn men, they aren’t afraid to face life’s truths and learn and grow. The family history is a bit murky and sordid, but they love being Blackthornes.
Being a Blackthorne means more than money. It means that they are a part of a family that has lived, loved, and lost, but managed to stay together…at least for now. And for Brock Blackthorne, having a family that is always there for him no matter what life throws at them is the most important thing. Jenna has never really had that kind of support. Having been born to and raised by older, career-driven parents, she’s a little lost both personally and professionally, and this project with Brock could literally make or break her in both areas. When the mystery surrounding the Blackthorne name takes a wild turn, will it knock them off course or will the road lead them back to each other?
NICUnurse’s Rating: Until this book, I haven’t ever read this author’s work. Not for any other reason than there are just SO many books by SO many romance authors out there to choose from. And while I know she’s a bestselling author, her writing style just wasn’t for me. The story felt a little like listening to a long piece of music that is comprised strictly of staccato beats, which also made it harder to connect with the characters. However, with that said, I will honestly admit that I loved how she deepened the mystery surrounding the Blackthorne family history and the secret that we’re all dying to know that Claire claims to have kept for so long. All in all, it was a pleasant read. I just don’t think I connected with the author’s writing style. Who knows…maybe you will. Despite all of this, if you’re invested in the series like I am, I would still encourage you to give Brock a chance because the revelations in this book are not worth skipping. And the book isn’t badly written or anything like that. Sometimes you connect with an author’s style, and sometimes you don’t. This time, I didn’t. Ultimately, I give Brock by Roxanne St. Claire 3.75 out of 5 propellers.
