We weren’t destined to be together, in fact we were strictly forbidden.

The moment my eyes land on my brother’s best friend, my childhood crush comes flooding back.
If I was still the good little girl he remembered, I’d tell him exactly who I am.
Instead, I only have one thing on my mind—showing him exactly the kind of woman I’ve become.

Jul 28, 2020 rated it it was amazing
This is the fifth and last book in the Slade Brothers Series but can be read as a standalone. This is the youngest brother, Hudson's story. I haven't read all the other books in the series and I did not feel confused reading this book. A great story that was well written with well-developed characters and an engaging storyline. He was the elusive brother since he was away on deployment most of the time. Hudson & Deven will grab your heart in this story of forbidden love. Heartwarming and emotion ...more

This is the fifth book in the Slade Brothers series by Alexis Winter. This forbidden romance story is well written and packed with a bit of drama, strong attraction, misunderstandings, secrets, explosive chemistry, suspense, betrayal, hot scenes, and a HEA.

Running to Love

Family is everything to the Slade brothers. While each one has pushed boundaries in the journey to affirm his goals and dreams, each has found out that ultimately, his explorations of career, life and self, have led each brother back home to Colorado, to settle on the family land, and for some, to even step back into the family business—a brewery and more recently, a distillery.

This was a good read, a small town romance that involves a man who no longer serves in the military and a woman who seems to have her own amount of mess ups. Their chemistry is hot and it was hard to put the book down. I strongly recommend this book.

I read an ARC copy of this.

This was a good read. Hudson comes back home and the first night he sleeps with Deven. She lied about her name so he was surprised by who she really was. Of course they fall in love and the brother finds out. Thankfully in the end everything works out and they get their happy ending.

My Musings

What a great romance. The characters are vibrant and the plot is original. Seven has a few rough edges, and Hudson is the perfect guy to smooth them. This book has an awesome ending, and the author wraps up the series with a big bow. Happy ☺reading 📚!

Ms. Alexis Winter has just impressed me with this impossible to put down installment to the Slade Brothers. 

Best Friend's Sister focuses on Hudson and Deven, his best friend, Brad's, Sister.  Returning from the Military is not an easy thing to adjust to and as Hudson finds his way, it leads him to the beautiful Deven.

Deven has returned to her home town to begin her life over, away from a horrific situation, and is temporarily staying with her older Brother, Brad.

romance behind his back

This book was very entertaining to read.
Had to laugh at parts of it and then teared up at other parts.
Hudson hooked up with Deven in the most obvious place for a small town.
She has always had a crush on Hudson while growing up and Hudson did not recognize her as his friends little sister.
The first time together was earth shattering for both Deven and Hudson.
The second time meeting Deven was after he already promised Brad he would move into the other bedroom in the apartmen

A Little Disappointed

First, I didn't like all. To me, she was a liar and a schemer. She kept referring to herself as an adult, as a woman (even though she was just 18 years old), but how many "women" use fake ID's and mislead guys by using their middle names (because they know that using their real first names would blow their cover)? She had sex with Hudson, knowing full well who he was, and knowing full well that her didn't recognize her.

DNF @ 25%

This trope is one of my favourites but I can't for the sake of it like the way this book is written. The dialogue just doesn't do it for me and I know it'll be a 1/2 star book. I don't feel the chemistry between the main leads and it just feels a little forced.

Best Friend’s Sister is the 5th and final book in the Slade Brothers series. Before reading this book, I actually went back and read all of the other books in the series- you in no way have to do this, as it can be read as a stand alone, but getting to know all the other Slade brothers and get more insight to some of the storyline can definitely be beneficial.

This book is about Hudson Slade- who is the youngest Slade brother that has been away in the military and Deven “Danielle” Olsen, who is

I received a free ARC copy in exchange for a honest review.

This is first book I have read by Alexis Winter but it definitely won't be the last. Being book 5 in the series I was a little worried that I might lose something not reading the prior 4 books. This definitely wasn't the case. The series is about each of the 5 brothers each finding love.

In book 5, Best Friend's Sister, we meet the final Slade brother Hudson. The woman he wants most in the world is the one he promises his best friend, Bra

I'll start this review with a TRIGGER WARNING in relation to the attempted rape scenes of which there are two. They are contextual to the story and not graphic but some may, understandably, find them a problem.

This is my first Alexis Winter book and I will be adding them to my permanent reading list for the future. The style of writing suited me, the pace of the story was good with it not being just about the two main characters; there were sub-plots going on with the support cast who have obvi

Once I started reading this book. I couldn't hardly put it down. It was steamy from the beginning and just kept getting better. This book brought out a lot of emotions for me. It had me excited, upset, laughing, swooning, and emotional.

This is a likeable book about the youngest Slade brother.

I liked this book. I enjoyed it enough I went ahead and bought books 1-4 to add to my library. I want to read about the rest of the Slade Brothers. They all seem so great in this book, I definitely wanted more.

Hudson is the ultimate hot guy, add in the manners and the ALPHA attitude and you’ve pushed all my feel good buttons. He was absolutely easy to fall for.

Deven is your typical troubled girl who wants to be better. She knows what she wants and she’s going to take it. Consequences be damned.

Book 5 and just as good as the rest! Love the Slade brothers! I can't even pick a favorite anymore! Two lost people searching for their place. After an earlier than expected, honorable discharge from the military, Hudson is back home, but it doesn't feel like home. Not until he spots a hottie walking into the bar. Deven has been crashing at her brother's as she tries to get her life on track. After a rough upbringing and a slew of bad decisions, she is tired of everyone looking at her like an ir ...more

Lately I read a lot of Best friend's sibling romances that their friends are reasonable so I enjoy reading this trope more than the past. But I didn't enjoy reading this book as I thought. First, I think Deven's age is too young... I know I know that she has been through a lot and be more mature than her age. I even think sometime she is more mature than Hudson but still. Second, I don't impress by the author describes her looks. Well, I get the idea that she is sexy but reading Hudson tells his ...more
