Flirting with the Frenemy is book one in the brand new series, Bro Code by Pippa Grant. I would call this a cross between the enemies to lovers trope, the brother’s best friend trope, and the single dad trope.

Ellie Ryder thought she knew what she wanted in life. She had the career she wanted. And the man she’s been dating for the past two years checked off all the boxes. Until he dumped her on Christmas Eve. Not wanting to be alone at her own place, she goes to her parents home and who does she

Author's Note, Release Day!!!!:
It's here!! It's HERE!!! And now the world can see Wyatt and his #bookboyfriendgoals, and Ellie and her vulnerability and strength, and the Long Beak Silver and his foul mouth, and have I mentioned the pirate-obsessed best friend/bride? Because if she hadn't demanded a pirate-themed wedding, Shipwreck wouldn't exist, and I kinda love Shipwreck more than I probably should...

OMG! I absolutely loved this fun, flirty, smart, snarky, sexy enemies to lovers romance!

Ellie and Wyatt have a crazy history. They practically grew up together, and have consistently annoyed the heck out of each other for years. Their relationship has been to goad and cajole and generally find fault with whatever the other is doing. And that worked for them for years. Until it didn't.

Until they finally realized what they were feeling for each other wasn't annoyance at all, it was actually somet

Wyatt and Ellie 4-Ever

Before I picked up this book I heard rumors that other readers were saying that Wyatt was replacing Ares as their favorite Pippa Grant Hero. My immediate reaction was NO WAY!! Well, I just finished this book and it sort of pains me to admit that it might just be true for me too!

I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS love Ares but, man, Pippa really brought it when she wrote Wyatt.

Sigh. As of this writing, I'm the first 1-star review of this new series. 😞But I just have to be honest. I can't honestly give a book a 2-star rating (which means, per GR, that the book was "okay"), when I actually didn't really like it.

Pippa Grant is one of those author's that I have a hit-or-miss relationship with. I either like the craziness of the characters/story or I think the humor is too OTT. Sadly, this one was a miss for me. I didn't laugh at scenes that were supposed to be funny. And

4.5 Stars!

The title says is all. It is as promised, a Frenemies to lovers book. Add in Best Friend's little sister and there is bound to be some tension. Loved the whole thing!

Wyatt and Ellie have a long history having grown up together. They have always bickered and tried to one up each other. Apparently, everyone but them say it for what it was---foreplay. The chemistry is off the charts with these two. They know each other so well, I really think that is what finally sealed the deal for Ell

The books get crazier and crazier and I love every minute of it. Flirting with the Frenemy is so hilarious and addictive that there was never a dull moment. After all the heavy books that I have been reading, this was the perfect remedy. It made me feel light and free. It was exhilarating.

Ellie and Wyatt have never gotten along from the time they met. He was her brother’s best friend from childhood. Fast forward many years and they sti

**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is the brilliant beginning of a series by this author and it is told by Ellie and by Wyatt as they navigate the waters six months after having one night together, before Ellie got into a massive car crash that has changed her life around.

Wyatt is one of her brothers best friends and also the man that Ellie has been fighting with for as long as she can remember. With her best friend getting married in a crazy t

4.5 stars for this hilarious and sexy book. I loved it. When you're grabbing your kindle because you have to know what happens next in the middle of a work day you know you've hit gold. Lovable and quirky characters that will make your heart turn to mush and will keep you tied in knots waiting for them to hook up. This author writes funny and cute and funny and sexy and funny and just damn right funny. This is book 1 so jump on the Pippa Grant train with me and laugh your butt off.

Flirting With the Frenemy was a nice enjoyable read.

When Wyatt went to live with his grandma he made a lot of new friends around the neighbourood.His best friend's little sister always wanted to play with them and in the end he always found himself bickering with the girl.
Now after so many years their relationship is still complicated,they are not friends nor enemies and maybe they are only deceiving themselves about their real feelings for each other.
I liked Ellie and Wyatt since the beginning

The term frenemy has been re-defined in this larger-than-life tale of love and hate. Ellie always had a fiery relationship her brother’s best friend, Wyatt. But her feelings take on a whole new level of mixed up emotion when her entire world was rocked in an instant. She and Wyatt are a recipe for disaster and she is convinced that the universe is out to make sure that they keep their distance. When one tub of “loser ice-cream” ignites their fiery relationship, a disaster strikes. Now they are f ...more

This is not my first read by this author & not last for sure, so far I have loved every book, including this funny banter, adventurous, steamy and fun story!

When Ellie and Wyatt have a rather unforgettable night, It seems that Wyatt’s idea of smooth, was not so smooth after all. What happens next had me crying. She did not deserve it, but life throws curve balls left and right.

6 months later they again meet in a unconventional way except, Wyatt isn't alone. What went from a funny ha ha momen

Flirting With The Frenemy is full of laughter and hesitancy. I always have tears running down my face from laughter with Pippa Grant's books. This one was no different. She gives us tons of laughs but she also gives us tons of emotional change in the characters.

Ellie is super fun. She may have let a few things hold her back a bit, but shes full of life and sass. Her quick wit and banter with Wyatt showed how sassy she could be. Wyatt is at a crossroads dealing with a lot, but he makes sure to a

This was the first Pippa book I read and I truly loved it.
My feeling for Wyatt kept changing I never disliked him and I never liked him he was right there in the middle. I do understand why he was gun shy about being in a relationship. But I was delighted when they saw the smole had cleared

No one combines swoon and sarcasm quite like Pippa Grant! I mean, who knew insults could also be sweetly hilarious?! Flirting With the Frenemy will keep you laughing and your heart melting from start to finish. I laughed so hard while reading this I had tears running down my face and then I was happy sighing just as much from how much I adored Wyatt and Ellie!This is definitely one of those reads where you’ll be smiling nonstop.
The chemistry these two have is nothing short of electric with spark

At this point after having read all the books from Mr. McHottie to Charming as Puck I thought I knew what to expect from Pippa Grant. But Flirting with the Frenemy surprised me. And Not always in a good way. This book starts out a little darker than all the other books of her’s I’ve read. Ellie our heroine has been dumped by her long time boyfriend two days before Christmas. Wyatt her older brother Beck’s best friend has just received his divorce papers and has had to accept the fact that

Flirting With the Frenemy is filled with so much fun and the perfect amount of heart, it's why I'm continually drawn to Pippa Grant's books time and time again.

There is almost no better description than Frenemy when it comes to someone from your childhood who tormented you to no end, yet also pushed you to better yourself because you just had to prove to that insufferable being that you were better than all of their constant teasing.

FUN. That’s what this book is. It's just so darn much fun! Everything about it, all the way through it is fun. It’s also hilarious, zany, outrageous, quirky, steamy, evocative, poignant and sweet. With an adorable kid, a delightfully unique cast of secondary characters, an ex who doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of “ex,” a foul-mouthed parrot, pirates and treasure hunts, dueling town festivals, farm animals run amok, and a phenomenal theme wedding, this book has something for every reader. ...more

An absolute joy to read and one book that will keep you reading well past your bedtime to see what will happen next with these two. A romcom that will definitely keep a smile on your face the entire way through and even have you laughing along with the characters at some of the scenes. The banter between Ellie and Wyatt begins right at the beginning of the book and does not end, just softens up a bit at the end. But then, their banter began when they were kids and Ellie would tag along with her ...more

Flirting with the Frenemy by Pippa Grant was so much fun to read. Her books tend to be hilarious and at times over-the top, but they are also charming and full of steaminess. They are a great escape when you just want to read something enjoyable and light.

Ellie and Wyatt have always had a push and pull relationship. I loved their banter and back and forth. Wyatt is Ellie’s older brother’s best friend and has always been a part of her life and driving her crazy. Then when both of them a

Pippa Grant has fast become one of my favourite rom-com authors, and this book only cements that status for me! This rollicking, hilarious rollercoaster of a tale is about Ellie, Wyatt, his adorable son Tucker and pirates. And boy bands. And Frogger (who doesn't remember the glorious game that was Frogger???).

Ellie and Wyatt have known each other since they were kids. Ellie's brother, boy band turned underwear model Beckett, is Wyatt's best friend. Which means Ellie and Wyatt have been frenemie

LOVED IT! Thank you, Pippa Grant for another hilarious story. True comedic genius written into every line, loved the condiment fight and the constant issues that surround Ellie and Wyatt are so out there I just laughed through the entire book.

I laughed. I despaired. I swooned. Even when I wasn’t reading this book, I was thinking about the characters and talking about it. I put it down very grudgingly to adult but kept sneaking back for more.

Ellie was so infuriating and pigheaded! I loved how strong and independent she was, but she made me want to shake her sometimes! Wyatt was everything you would expect of a military man, and practically perfect in every way. His son Tucker was positively adorable.

The plot was interesting and unique

I mean this is the best way possible but I just can't deal with Pippa's writing, she's an unbelievable genius writer.

Pippa Grant is a stay-at-home mom and housewife who loves to escape into sexy, funny stories way more than she likes perpetually cleaning toothpaste out of sinks and off toilet handles. When she’s not reading, writing, sleeping, or trying to prepare her adorable demon spawn to be productive members of society, she’s fantasizing about chocolate chip cookies.
