A classic romantic trope gets a fresh taken in Falling for My Brother’s Best Friend by Piper Rayne, the latest in their Baileys series.
Let’s say you’re an independent, self-sufficient woman who runs the family company and you find yourself falling for your little brother’s best friend. Now, more than ever, you need to count all the reasons why you need to abandon falling.
Abandon Falling #1 – He’s a womanizer. Hasn’t had a serious relationship a day in his life and changes women more often than he changes his sheets.
Abandon Falling #2 – He’s never serious. He cracks one-liners, mostly at your expense.
Abandon Falling #3 – When things go wrong, he seems unfazed and always remains in control. It’s so annoying.
Abandon Falling #4 – He has tattoos. Lots of them. Everywhere. Not to mention, he owns a tattoo parlor. (Damn it! Why doesn’t that sound like a bad thing anymore?)
Abandon Falling #5 – There’s a growing list of how different you two are. You can’t get along for fifteen minutes—a lifetime together would land one of you in prison.
Keep repeating those reasons and drown yourself in work. Pretend you don’t notice his good qualities or how enticing he looks without a shirt, and do not, I repeat, do not agree to live with the man while your place is being repaired from flood damage.
Trust me, even the strongest of us can only forego temptation for so long.
I confess, I’m actually new to this series — but even though there is an overwhelmingly large cast of characters to keep track of it, it wasn’t difficult to slip into this book and treat it as a standalone. (Although honestly a family tree/cast of characters list at the beginning would be SO helpful, just because there are SO many!)
There was plenty of chemistry between Liam and Savannah to keep the tension going, as you waited to see how they’d work things out. Their relationship starts out almost antagonistically, each pushing the other’s buttons — until they reach an agreement to call a truce and help each other out. (Well, mostly Liam helping Savannah out.)
The large family dynamic does play into their relationship, with an obnoxiously meddlesome grandmother and a plethora of siblings. Add in the fact that Liam has been like a part of their family for so long, and you can see where things get tricky for the couple.
Through ups and downs, there’s also plenty of sexual tension and heat. I wish a few of the family issues had been more soundly resolved, although I suspect that’s fodder for future books in the series. Ultimately, this was a fast, fun, sexy read. Look for it in stores today:

Our goal is to bring you romance stories that have “Heartwarming Humor With a Side of Sizzle” (okay…you caught us, that’s our tagline). A little about us… We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
