From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a flirty new standalone about falling for your older brother’s best friend.
There’s pretty much only one rule when you’re a guy.
Don’t be a douche.
Turns out, the fastest way to break that rule is to fall for your best friend’s sister.
Ava’s brilliant, sharp-tongued, gorgeous, and five years younger than me.
She’s the sexual equivalent of running with scissors. In a word, she’s dangerous. And completely off-limits.
Falling for her could ruin everything.
Yet I can’t seem to stop, even when her company is threatened by a lawsuit, and my promotion hinges on representing the opposing client—and winning.
I can’t see a way out of this mess that doesn’t end in a broken friendship, a broken heart, or a ruined career.
I may have broken the bro code when I fell for Ava. But do I have the balls to handle what comes next?
The past few books of Kendall Ryan’s that I have read, I have thought they were pretty average and found myself wanting more. Bro Code gave that to me. I felt like I got so much more of the story in this one and it was very good.
I thought it was very well written and the story had a great flow to it. I saw the little twist coming, but it only added to a great romance. I am a huge fan of brother’s best friend trope and I thought Ryan did a fantastic job with this one. The main characters were a match made in heaven and I really enjoyed reading their story. The side characters as well were great additions and I kind of wanted to learn more about the brother.
Ava was an adorable heroine who was as stubborn as a mule, and looked out for others over herself. I admired her business head and how she handled herself in tense situations. She was strong and independent, but still very much a woman who liked being cared for.
Barrett made a great match for Ava and I loved him to pieces. He was a strong, older man who wanted to prove to everyone that he was worth being loved and strove to show the accomplishments he reached through his determination. In the end, Barrett was bound and determined to go after what he wanted no matter the cost to himself.
I recommend this book to those who love: brother’s best friend books, steamy scenes, stubborn heroines, and determined heroes.
Overall Rating: 4/5 Stars!
I’ve really been on the fence with Kendall Ryan’s books lately, and they’ve been leaving me feeling really unfulfilled. They just haven’t had a lot of substance, and I felt like there were a lot of plot holes and missed opportunities. However, Bro Code has totally redeemed Kendall’s writing for me and I absolutely loved it.
Ava was so cute, and adorable. She’s Barrett’s best friends younger sister, and she knows that while she can’t have him, she still wants him. And after a chance encounter in the bathroom, she can’t stop thinking of what he looked like with water running off his skin. It’s a hilarious scene by the way, and I actually felt slightly disappointed that nothing that exciting had ever happen to me in my life. Plus, my brother never had friends that looked liked Barrett.
Barrett was such a good guy. He was strong willed, determined, and wasn’t afraid to work for what he wanted. He knew that getting together was against the “Bro Code” and he didn’t want to affect his relationship with his best friend, but he also couldn’t hide is overwhelming attraction and then love for Ava. I really enjoyed watching him come to the full realization of his feelings in this one!
I’d recommend this one for any best friend/younger sibling romance lovers, and for anyone that loved Kendall’s previous novel, The Room Mate. Bro Code gave me a lot of the same feeling I had when I read the previously mentioned novel, which has always been one of my favorites!
