Publisher's Summary

I’m not boyfriend material.

If a trail of broken hearts and a piss-poor record of failed relationships have taught me anything, it’s this. My buddies are happy to give me shit about my latest breakup from here to next Sunday. Thanks, but I’d rather have a root canal.

And a vasectomy.

At the same time.

Relief comes in an unlikely package - the gorgeous and feisty Maren. She just so happens to be my best friend’s sister, so that’s not awkward at all.

But I’m a man on a mission, and Maren is down to teach me all the ways I’ve been failing as a boyfriend. Apparently, there are many. And it’s all very informative - until I start to catch feelings.

Now it’s not just my reputation on the line, but my heart, too.

Sizzling hot forbidden storyline.

Sebastian York and Erin Mallon rocked this narration! If you’re looking for a brother’s best friend storyline with a lot of sparks this is one for you. Hayes and Maren’s chemistry is sizzling hot and forbidden. I also enjoyed the supporting characters and can’t wait to listen to their stories.

A great brother's best friend book

I love a Kendall Ryan rom-com. This book was sweet and left me with a smile on my face. If you are a fan of brother's best friend books, I definitely recommend you check this out. Hayes is taking a date from women. Maren is Hayes' best friend's little sister and completely off limits to him, but she's the girl he's always wanted. These two get thrown together on a project and the sparks are flying even more than usual. Though being together is forbidden to the both of them, they can't resist. I enjoyed both Hayes and Maren and liked watching their romance blossom. I wish we would have gotten more of them as for real couple, that's my only issue with this one. Otherwise it was a great listen. It was narrated by my favorite female narrators (Erin Mallon) and Sebastian York, who always does an incredible job. My favorite part about it was the side romance with Hayes's grandma Rosie and Don. I liked this one a lot, and I'm looking forward to Maren's brothers book!

Best Friend's Little Sister

Such a great story of friends to lovers and best friends little sister. Maren Cox and Hayes Ellison have always had a secret attraction for each other that has gone beyond just friendship…and they are finally scratching that itch and trying to keep it from Maren’s brother, Wolfie, the protective older-brother. Love that Hayes finally figures out that his relationships were never really long term because he was always in love with Maren. Thank goodness they figure it out with a little help from sweet Rosie, Haye’s grandmother. Such an enjoyable sweet story that you could get through on a cozy weekend.

Frisky Business

I am so excited about the Frisky Business series! Maren and Hayes were a great start! These two are one hot couple. I love a good brother's best friend/sister story and Kendall did not disappoint with these two! Maren is definitely not a meek little sister either, this girl knows what she wants and willing to go after it. The lake scenes were awesome! And Grandma Rosie and Don were so cute too! Another must read! Can't wait for Wolfie's book!

HE TRIES NOT TO GIVE IN 💞

I recieved this book for Free to Give My True & Honest Review I also brought the audio as it was due out at the same time & the narration by Erin Mallon & Sebastian York brings Maren Cox the younger sister of his best mate Wolfie, since they were kids. And Hayes Ellison has kept his feelings buried by sleeping around with any girl. And its not until he decided that he's going to Give Up Women. And he's there always for Maren like when he's called to check on her when she didn't go into work, but its all to do with an accident by hot wax 😅 Maren has been feeling the same deep feelings for Hayes for just as long & as Strong. And we see alot go on for them during their time here & it getting more open when Maren is wanting help with an event to have an auction to help save her work place the nursing home Riverside where her grandfather stayed prior & what she loves. But its NOT JUST them whom finds someone with the help of Riverside 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👨👫
