Jake Tyler walked out of Special 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.


Alpha Barman I THINK is book one of what will be a series for Sue Brown. There are a lot of characters in play in this story. The story starts off with a wow and an OMG. Immediately we are assaulted with the feels. JT (Jake) is moving on from his Ops job to Wyoming where he opens a bar with a guy named Howie. But when he leaves he tells no one but his boss and leaves his lover behind and unknowing. OUCH!

That’s as much of the story as I will summarize. There’s a mystery to this story. Not a whodunit but more of a “did the guy we get actually do it?” I say that because there’s no way you could figure out the outcome with clues given if I’m being honest here. 

There’s a lot of testosterone in this book but with a title like Alpha Barman you sort of expect it. It’s light on the sex though so if that’s what you read alpha books for you won’t get that here. But the sexual tension is very thick in this story. 

Mitch, Jake’s ex-lover, and his team come to Wyoming for Jake’s protection (I won’t tell you why) and of course seeing his old team and ex after disappearing on them, it was sure to cause some drama. Serious drama. I found the dialog within the team and Jake and Mitch to be really well written. I ADORED Howie. He’s a gentle giant that one and I’d love to see him get his own book. I’d also love to see Lukas get his own book too (wink wink nudge nudge, Sue)

Alpha Barman really focuses on the story and emotions more than anything else. I thought I’d be upset with the lack of alpha sex but Sue really did compensate with great story and awesome characters.

I really look forward to another book in this series.
