Mabel “Maybe” Willis died a virgin at the very young age of twenty-four. She leaves behind her parents, Betty and Bruce, her brother, Evan, a laptop filled with one too many Jason Momoa memes, and a Kindle library with more books than one human being could ever finish in a lifetime.
Cause of death: a text message.


Okay. So, I didn’t die.
But I may as well have.

2.5 stars

This is my first time reading Max Monroe and I don’t really know how I feel about them or their writing style. There were a few things I liked about this book and a few more things I didn’t like.
Some of the things I liked the trope. I’m a total sucker for the best friend’s sister/brother trope. I liked the bf Lena. There were parts that made me laugh.
Some of the things I didn’t like were the jumps in time. For example one minute she was giving Milo a bj and the next she is going to a

📚 “Deflower me, please?” 📚

24 years old Mabel (Maybe) Willis returned to New York after graduating from Stanford and while she's looking for a job at one of the city's publishing houses, she works at her parents, Betty and Bruce Willis, flower shop. 🌷
Yes, her father's name is Fucking Bruce Willis - which makes a lot of tourists come to the store and look for the King of Action. 😂😂😂

The story is funny and not uninteresting either, but the fact that he keeps calling her "kid" until the end destroys the whole book for me. Calling someone "kid" just isn't sexy at all... urghs.

Five love stars for Maybe and Milo ❤!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Max Monroe never disappoints!

I've only read two books that this amazing duet has written and I can say that I'm in love with their writing.

This is one of the best rom-com books I've read this year and a perfect book for bringing it with you on your summer vacation.

Maybe and Milo made me laugh through the whole book.

I love both characters.

DNF... I don’t even know what %. I got this from KU because it was one of the highest-selling romance titles on Kindle right now and all I can assume is that readers have lost all sense of good taste because this was god-fucking-awful. I regret every second of my life I spent reading the tiny amount I actually read. Completely juvenile “humor” and there was also a transphobic “joke” at one point which is right around the time I noped out.

I read it all, but...

This is going to be a very short review and a wee bit spoilerish, so please proceed with caution.

I could handle him calling her "Kid" the first time because he was still thinking of her as his best friend's little sister.

BUT...

THE WHOLE BLOODY BOOK??? LIKE IT WAS AN ENDEARMENT. 😳🤢

Besides the 'kid' thing, unfortunately, My Brother's Billionaire Best Friend was a little too much the same same from this author duo. Felt like I had read it all before. He tries to organise a hoo

This was such a fun read!

It hits one of my favorite tropes right on the head (Is that the correct expression?): Brother’s best friend.

Mabel (Maybe) has always had a crush on her brother's best friend Milo, who is now a billionaire business owner. She has just returned to NYC after getting her Master's in English Lit over at Stanford on the west coast and hasn't seen Milo in so long that he didn't even recognize her when they meet again. Maybe’s brother asks Milo to help his sister get her foot

This started off really well, I was enjoying being in Maybe's head........until the mcs actually meet.




Random thoughts...........

The best friend's little sister trope is rarely done differently which is a shame. It's tough reading about the mmc going round and round about whether or not be be with the fmc because she's his friend's little sister. It's even more ridiculous In this case as Maybe( I'm not sure if her name was cute or annoying) was 24 to Milo's 30.

3.5 “live dangerously” stars

Milo and Maybe’s story is so sweet. She is his best friends little sister, and he is the boy she’s always had a secret crush on. Maybe is all grown up, and Milo is now the man she’s crushing on. Slow burn. With a low heat level, but honestly the sweet romcom vibes are enough to keep you wanting more of their love. I love that their story was so sweet, because it stayed true to their characters. Maybe is like awkward and sweet. I just loved her. Milo is swoon-y and you

This is the first book I've read by the writing team Max Monroe, and I really enjoyed their writing voice and style.

This is also one of my favourite tropes (What started as a juvenile crush, turns into falling for the older brother's best friend).

I had high hopes for this story and Max Monroe did not disappoint!

When Milo realizes that his best friends younger sister, Mabel (Maybe) has grown up to be a smart, confident, and beautiful young woman it

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

I will admit, that the first 10-15% of this book had me thinking I was going to dislike it, and get really frustrated with the characters. Plus I really am not a fan of weirdly name characters in books (Maybe? I know its a nickname, but it still annoyed me haha). But once I pushed through that, and got to the real start of the story, where things begin to get more meaty, I found myself really enjoying it.

This was definitely a SLOW BURN, which as most of you know is not always my favorite. Because this author duo is so hilarious, I stayed entertained the entire time.

Mabel Willis has been infatuated with her brother’s best friend Milo since she was a little girl. Now since she just graduated from Stanford she is back home and hoping to find a job in publishing. First of all her nickname “Maybe” is the best!!! Her parents are so dang funny.

Milo is a very successful billionaire and as a favor to M

Word of advice, straight from me to you: have emergency services on standby while reading this book. You’ll faint, swoon, fall head-over-heels, and die from too much laughter (if that’s even possible).

I don’t know how they do it, and at this point I’ve just given up even trying to guess, but Max Monroe has delivered another smash romcom with My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend. Their signature comedic approach to romance is uniquely theirs, and this book is just another example of their incompa

My Brothers Billionaire Best Friend by Max Monroe was a fun and light read that had me laughing out loud and loving Maybe and Milo. Yes, Maybe is our heroine’s name. Well her name is Mabel Willis, but everyone called her Maybe. She was funny and quirky and just plain adorable and very likable. I loved her from the beginning. Milo is her brother’s best friend and older and she has crushed on him for years.

Sexy. Fun. Flirty. Hilariously entertaining.

I love a good brother’s best friend romance and it’s even better when it’s also a rom com. I laughed so much and so hard while reading, I’m talking belly-aching-tears-in-my-eyes cackling. I haven’t laughed that much when reading a book in who knows how long. My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend hit all the feel-good spots.

Maybe and her adorable awkwardness got me every time. Her antics had me laughing nonstop. I loved how quirky and innocent she

Maybe is tired of being a virgin. When she sends her brother's best friend (and her childhood crush) a text asking him to deflower her, she blames the Universe for punishing her. But after talking it over with Milo (said crush), they agree to forget the whole thing. But the more time they spend together and the more times she texts him, the deeper she falls for him. Her bestie says he's half in love with her already, Maybe just needs to seduce him. Can she do it? Can she seduce her brother's bes ...more

I have yet to read a book by the talented author duo that is Max Monroe that I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed. Always hilarious, their romantic comedies pack a one-two punch of steam and story. Creative, imaginative plots, endearing, relatable characters and romances that are as heart-tugging as they are heart-pounding, Max and Monroe deliver the goods every single time. Teetering on the edge of ridiculous, the humor in their stories is the kind of stuff that makes readers laugh audibly, s

My Brother's Billionaire Best Friend was an amazing story... at the beginning only. Once other characters from previous books or other billionaire series we introduced to the story—Because, let's be honest here, everybody always knows everybody in the real life, riiiiiiight?—it all flew into Shitville immediately.
Suddenly, everything a heroine said was crazy (after another crazy character was mention) or funny (when there was mention of another different one).
The writing was sloppy and illogical
