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

4 stars!

She’s my best friend’s sister. She’s brilliant, gorgeous, and completely forbidden.

I've read quite a few Kendall Ryan books, and this is by far my favorite of her more recent releases. I love a good brother's best friend book. The forbidden aspect... the tension within the pages... it makes for one deliciously steamy story. 

Barrett Wilson is a successful attorney in Chicago. He's worked hard and is now on the fast track to becoming partner at the law firm he works at. He's

Wanting her is the equivalent of running with scissors. In a word, she’s dangerous. Wanting her this desperately could put an end to the closest friendship I’ve got, and worse than that, I sense she could leave me brokenhearted.

BRO CODE is a sweet and sexy ”in love with the older brother’s best friend” romance. I loved both the Hero and Heroine and found the plot to be entertaining, and the story progression was well paced. This story had a l

OK can I just start this off by saying it is a little disconcerting when the male MC in the book has the same name as you, even though spelled differently.... especially when he is supposed to be so swoon worthy and hot, I just really couldn’t get past the part that we shared a name.... but other than that this was a spectacular fun spicy book filled with everything you expect from Kendall Ryan....

I picked Bro Code out on a whim because I need a rebreather after reading a dark romance novel. I listened to the audiobook which was narrated by Jacob Morgan (my favorite!!) and Ava Erickson. It's my first time listening to her and surely won't be my last. Her voice was soft, soothing and distinct. Both narrators are suited for the characters and did a wonderful job on it

The narration of this book was refreshing and different from the ones I've listened to. Usually the voice actor / actress nar

Sultry, sassy, and sweet!

Bro Code is an enchanting, passionate read that mixes the the hardworking, caring Ava who’s determined to not only keep the family business up and running but her hands off the man of her dreams, and the chivalrous, delectable Barrett who may finally take the risk and act on his feelings for his best friend’s sister.

The writing is effortless and fluid. The supporting characters are fun-loving and engaging. And the plot sweeps you away into a push-pull storyline filled wi

Bro Code is a standalone and is another fun, flirty, steamy and light-hearted read. Bro Code was an easy read. I read it in one sitting and it was just a simple, no fuss- no muss light romantic book.

Ava’s has had a crush on her brother’s best friend forever and now Barrett and Ava are staying at Ava’s childhood home. Ava wants to have a little fun, but Barrett is all about the Bro Code, you just don’t tap your best friend’s little sister.

“I don’t like being told what to do unless I’m naked.”

Fun, flirty, sexy with a dash of SASS, Kendall Ryan brings us another delightful and entertaining romance with her latest release, BRO CODE! This best friend’s sister romance HIT ALL THE RIGHT MARKS for me, and then some. Ava and Barrett were so damn cute together! Ava was a pure gem and Barrett was so incredibly charismatic and sexy. Together, these two set my heart on fire with their banter and their blossoming, but intense love. I coul

That pretty much sums up this story.

Actually, the only thing that wasn’t average about this story, was the Heroes XXL-special-order-condom-elephant-trunk-cock! Its enormity was referred to often and seemed to be his most impressive/unique trait.

Sure, the story had its fun moments and cute times, but I’m sure we’ve all read these ‘falling in love with best friends sister’ stories before a bazilliontrillion times, and it this point they’re all blending into one for me. There w

I am in this weird semi book slump at the moment. I am spending more time searching for my next book than actually reading. So I was pretty excited when I finally got excited about reading Boyfriend for Hire. Then I realized I didn't have it on my kindle so I checked out Amazon and saw it was $5. Then I talked myself out of buying it.

I have a habit of one clicking books then not being in the mood to read them. Proof of that is that I have over a thousand books on my kindle and since a few of th

I really enjoyed Bro Code by Kendall Ryan.
The storyline was entertaining, the writing was well done and all the characters were fun getting to know.
Watching Barrett and Ava's relationship unfold had me laughing, smiling and swooning all through the book. These two had amazing chemistry and totally belonged together.
This was one of those reads that once you start reading you won't want to put it down.
Add this one to your TBR list as you too will fall in love with Bro Code.

Barrett Wilson has known Ava since they were children and has admired her from a far for almost as long, but he’s never acted on it for one reason and one reason alone, she’s his best friend’s little sister and wanting her goes against the Bro Code. But distance and time does make the heart grow fonder and what was once a crush, flames into a full blown inferno when Barrett goes back home to Indiana to help organize Ava’s father’s retirement party because Ava has crushed on him for just as long. ...more
Sometimes I forget how satisfying it can be to read a straightforward, mutual-want-with-lust story, big brother’s sister or not.

In truth, I don’t understand the ‘bro code’ that’s laid out like the holy grail in romance—why shouldn’t the brother’s best friend or the best friend’s brother or some other permutation like this be off-limits, particularly he’s a decent guy? The only reason I can see this being frowned upon is if the man in question is a degenerate, senseless moron, in which case, mer

I felt like I was on Kendall Ryan binge this weekend reading two of her books in a row. And I love he writing, so I enjoyed the back to back stories.

Bro Code is an example of where Kendall shines - she writes realistic characters with a relevant story line, which makes it easier for readers to relate to. And I love when everything plays out in a seamless timeline and nothing is rushed, it flows naturally.

Barrett and Ava have been crushing on each other for years and now Barrett has come home to celebrate the retirement of Ava's father as Ava takes on the responsibility of running the family factory business. Sparks fly and chemistry turns into more for Ava and Barrett but there is just one problem Ava is Barrett's BFF's little sister and Barrett doesn't want to cross the line. I really liked this book, the characters were so likable, the chemistry between them was wonderful and the sex was hot. ...more

Well, Ms. Kendall Ryan did it again. As you may guess from the title, this one is a forbidden between the hero and his best friend’s little sister. Ava has a huge crush on her brother’s friend Barrett since she was wearing braces. Ava is five years younger so Barrett is always a little out of t

Kendall Ryan's book get their magic touch, elegant and sexy, hillarious and hot at the same time. It's something that draws closer, an invisible power of attraction. But this time I didn't completely connect with this story. It's good but not what I thought it would be.
Basically is a mouse-cat game. And it might be interesting and sexy, because it's dangerous and off limits. It made by stollen moments and forbidden kisses and touches, BUT... there is when it breaks down he always plays the "bro

4 Barrett and Ava stars!

I'm officially a Kendall Ryan fan to the bones. She not only delivers great stories, but her heroes are always men you really want to get lucky and meet them in real life.

Barrett and Ava's story started decades ago when a girl fell in love with her brother’s best friend. but The Bro Code got in their way because a bro never makes eye contact with another bro while eating a banana. A bro always takes a piss standing up. And speaking of pissing . . . a bro never uses a ur
Cute. Predictable. Swoonworthy.

Bro Code is probably the dumbest kind of code ever. However, the book was entertaining and I really enjoyed it. I still think boys are idiots for following this stupid code but there are some winners in my book for the guys that break it.

It's a dual POV from Ava and Barrett. Ava is the younger sister of Barrett's best friend. Ava has had a crush on Barrett for the longest time. She has also taken over her dad's factory which is a lot to take in. Barrett has also ha

In this novel, the Bro Code forbids Barrett to da date and love Ava, because she's his best friend's sister - and a bro never touches the sister of another bro.
I've been expecting some hot and merciless sexy time between the protagonists, that would end up in a walk of shame or a guilty conscience. I've prepared myself for some epic arguments and even some bro fight, but it did not happen. Why?
Because our male protagonist is in love. Sweet, sweet man. He's in love.
