Seducing My Brother-in-Law, Pine Ridge Book 4 by Shae Michaels

Seducing My Brother-in-Law gives us the story of NHL player Sawyer, the identical twin of Finn from book 1. I know I'm not alone in having been dying for his story since I found out Finn was a twin, and the fact that it's with Finn's husband's baby brother makes it even more amazing! 

From the blurb:

Playing in the NHL is all I’ve ever wanted and I’ve worked hard my whole life to be able to professionally play the sport I love. I don’t even mind that I have to stay in the closet… much. Even when it means I have to put up with paying the blackmail demands of a former hookup. But when I wind up getting stranded by a freak snowstorm on the way to my twin brother’s wedding, I barely hesitate to invite the gorgeous young man I just met to spend the night with me. Then I find out I just had a night of fantastic, dirty sex with my new brother-in-law’s baby brother. Crap. Now that I do realize who TJ is… I just won’t let it happen again. Easy.

My life in Colorado… has not been going the greatest. So, when I serendipitously run into Sawyer Brzycki on the way back to Wisconsin for my older brother’s wedding and we wind up stranded together by a fortuitous snowstorm, I decide to give myself the gift of one night with the hot, older, boy-next-door turned professional hockey player, turned my new brother-in-law. The only problem is that it doesn’t feel like one night was enough. But how do I convince Sawyer that the fact that our brothers are married to each other, I live multiple states away from him, I’m so much younger than he is, and that he’s currently in the closet… aren’t really as big of an obstacle as he’s making them out to be? I guess it’ll just be up to me to have to keep seducing him until he changes his mind.

Reds Book Reads Review:

I really love this series and the residents of Pine Ridge. I love how the characters are all interconnected and you get to see them all throughout the different books. That said, you could dive in at any point if you chose to without too many issues. 

I loved how explosive TJ and Sawyer were and how, after some initial reluctance, they managed to mesh their lives together. I also loved the introduction of Sawyer’s hockey teammates and I really hope we get some more stories there as well! 

All in, a really enjoyable book from an author that is starting to become a must read for me.

OKAY. Seducing My Brother-in-Law is officially my favorite Shae Michaels book, and not just because there is a SMORGASBORD of hot AF steam! Although, that definitely contributed to my enjoyment if I'm being honest. Butttt I also just loved TJ and Sawyer. TJ was such an energetic and charismatic MC. He was bubbly and snarky. I loved the banter between him and his hockey playing stud. These two just got on so well together.

I really liked Sawyer too. He could be so sweet with TJ. I honestly think it hurt him more than TJ that he had to hide their relationship since he was still in the closet due to playing for the NHL. And wasn't that a breath of fresh air in a closeted romance. TJ never pressured Sawyer to come out. He knew going in that being together meant jumping into Sawyers closet with him until he retired and not once did he ever make Sawyer feel like he resented him for it. I mean yes, it did weight on TJ a bit not being able to shout from the rafters that Sawyer was his, but he was incredibly understanding about it.

"𝙄 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙮𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙄'𝙙 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙢𝙮 𝙮𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙮𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙝𝙤𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙮 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙝𝙖𝙙. 𝙄 𝙝𝙖𝙙 𝙨𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙘𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙢𝙮 𝙤𝙬𝙣.

See what I mean when I say Sawyer was feeling the weight too? I also have to mention how unbelievably AWESOME Sawyers hockey player mates were. And how ecstatic I am that Michaels is planning a spin off series for them. There were definite hints of potential couples that I am hoping come to life. A certain Dutch character. A certain pair of life long "roommates." A similarly named rivalry. And of course an enormous cinnamon roll giant who just NEEDS to be introduced to the joys of male on male fun times. I have a feeling he'd change his tune quite easily. I guess we'll see!

Heather's Review:

Airport hook-up - check, forced proximity due to weather - check, finding out you have been seduced by your new brother-in-law and he was the little kid down the street - priceless!

I think this was the Shae Michaels book that I had the most fun with... it was sweet, steamy and had laugh out loud funny moments.   It was also so endearing that TJ didn't push Sawyer to be out or to do more than he could, even to his own detriment...  It was also lovely to see Finn and Theo get married!

I'm looking forward to seeing where Shae Michaels spins off to a new series - hopefully following some more hunky hockey players around the NHL on some of the fun teams that were created for this world!

Angel's Review:

This has been the spiciest addition to this series by far! 

TJ is Theo Reilly's youngest brother, younger by 11 years... TJ is on his way to Pine Ride, Wisconsin to attend his brother's wedding. While he's at the airport he runs into his soon to be brother in law... But Sawyer has no clue who TJ is... So TJ isn't going to correct him, not when he can finally get his hands on the star of his fantasies. 

I have read all of Shae's Pine Ridge series books and I have thoroughly enjoyed them all. I think I liked this one a bit more because their was more humor and more banter with these characters in this book. Sawyer and TJ were hilarious together, TJ was not going to let Sawyer run away from him, no way! 

This one is definitely full of more spicy times than the other books have been. There weren't really any date scenes in this book, just spicy times. Which.. is why I couldn't give it a five star, but! Having said that, I still really enjoyed this book. The way the characters were written, and how they interacted with one another was just so incredible. Not to mention their relationship with one another was so believable! 

The puppy scene at the end? Oh my gosh, so adorable!! And Shae included a picture of the puppy!! Talk about cute!!

I really enjoyed reading about Sawyer and TJ, along with seeing past characters make appearances in this book. And! We got introduced to new characters! Maybe potential main characters? We'll just have to wait and see!! 

I highly recommend this book, and while you're at it, go purchase the others in this series as well!
