"My House, My Rules”

When Ariel’s headstrong ways nearly wreck one of Officer Sam Watson’s sting operations—ruining her dress in the process—he offers her a ride to his place to clean up. But Ariel seems to have her own agenda, and Sam decides it’s time to let her know he’ll be calling the shots...

“Bringing Up Baby”

Two years ago, Gil Watson had a wild night that resulted in a daughter he never knew he had. Now he has a chance to do right by his little girl, even if it means marrying the woman who’s been raising her. Fortunately Anabel Truman is anything but another bad decision…

“Good With His Hands”

As best friends, Pete Watson and Cassidy McClannahan have a “no sex” relationship. It may be a rigid rule, but it works—until Pete decides he wants to push the line and transform himself into the perfect guy he thinks Cassidy wants.

Brothers Sweet ROMANCE Family

The Watson Brothers a collection of novellas by Lori Foster were packaged together for audio and narrated by Jim Frangione. At just under nine hours these were fun, heated romances surround the Watson brothers. Y’all know I adore stories with brothers and Lori Foster is an author I can depend on for a good time.

  • My House, My Rules– This story features the oldest Watson brother, Sam Watson. Since his father’s passing Sam has been the head of the household, taking care of his brothers and their mother. Sam is thirty-five and found himself attracted to his younger brother’s friend Ariel. He feared she was too young and concerned about his brother’s feelings he ignored those sparks. When he is undercover at a local bar setting himself up as bait for a mugger, things get complicated when Ariel comes to his rescue. My House, My Rules, was a fun tale filled with complications, naughty moments and meddling family.
  • Bringing Up Baby– Gil is the second Watson brother and runs the family business. He is a by the book, neat freak whose world gets turns upside down when he discovers he is a father after the mother passes away. He is all ready to step up despite the complications Anabel Truman presents. Anabel had raised his daughter, and she presents him with a fascinating offer. I was nervous about this tale, but Foster gave a believable tale that made me laugh and swoon.
  • Good With His Hands– This last story takes place years later and features the youngest Watson brother’s tale. Pete’s world turns upside down when he realizes he has feelings for the girl next door. Good with Her Hands, This was a fun tale, although to be honest my least favorite. Pete was young and awkward. I kept wanting to smack him on the back of the head whenever he tried to articulate his feelings and put his foot in his mouth.

The Watson Brothers is narrated by Jim Frangione. While not a  memorable performance, he did a good job reading the tales and I quickly consumed the audio. It was fun trying some of Foster’s earlier stories. These were originally written in 2008.

    I haven’t even heard of these books, but you know I love a good audio book :)…sometimes they don’t even have to be “good” just love being able to get some kind of reading in 🙂

  2. Lorna

    Still haven’t read this author although I do have two older paperbacks and one newer one in my tbr. I’ve always heard good things about her. What’s not to like about brothers, small towns and romance?

  3. RO

    Love Lori Foster and remember reading this series way back in the day. She’s a talented writer, and has a shelf dedicated just to her. Hugs…

    gah another author I don’t think I have read yet, but yeah they looks great o.o I wish it was longer, I think I would love the brothers

  5. Sophia Rose

    I still haven’t read any of her books and I have no excuse since I have a few on the shelf. I do like the sound of the first story in this set for the fun factor.

  6. Rowena

    I can’t remember if I’ve ever read anything by Lori Foster before. Nothing is coming to mind. Thanks for the reviews though, you’re starting to make me re-think my stance on audiobooks. I could probably read way more books if I started listening to them too.

  7. Danielle

    I love that the novellas are all centered around three brothers! Again, appreciating your comments on narrators 🙂

    Lexxie and I buddy read this over a year ago and I’m happy to see you enjoyed listening about the Watson brothers. 😉 I’m trying to remember which one I liked best – I think it was Sam’s but it might have been Pete’s. LOL

  11. Kristin

    I’ve always toyed with the idea of going back and reading some of Lori’s older books. I kind of wondered what those books were like; were they more sweet or just as sexy as her latest one. Hmmm…
