REVIEW – Monster Prick (An Older Brother’s Best Friend Romance) by Kendall Ryan



Over my dead body.

That’s what I told Gracie when she informed me of her plan to pick some random guy she met online to get rid of her pesky virginity.

If anyone is touching her, it’s going to be me.

I shouldn’t even be considering it, but I can’t get it out of my head: her, under me, begging me.

Arrogant. Cocky. Prick.

Those are the words I’d use to describe my older brother’s dangerously handsome best friend.

When he learned of my plan to kick off my white cotton briefs, ditching my good girl persona once and for all by losing my virginity to the first eligible bachelor I could find, he flipped out. Said over his dead body.

He says if anyone’s going to do, it’s going to be him.

I hate that I’m even considering his offer.

But I am … I sooo am.

Ever since he suggested it, all I can think about is his cocky smile on those full lips as he’s driving in to me.

But if we cross that line … will I ever be able to go back?

MONSTER PRICK, a sexy romantic comedy, is a spin off novella from SCREWED, but can be read as a standalone, as it features a new couple.

Arrogant. Cocky. Prick. Those are the words I’d use to describe my older brother’s dangerously handsome best friend.


Monster Prick is a novella spin-off of Screwed. It can be read as a stand alone. It’s a Friends to Lovers/In Love With Older Brother’s Best Friend story, two of my most favorite tropes.

Gracie Oliver has been in love with Hudson Stone since she was a young girl. They have always had a special relationship from the beginning. It’s obvious that Hudson also harbored deep feelings for Gracie for a long time. He would go out of his way to make her feel better when she was down and he also would bring her a different illustrated children’s book as a present whenever he came by to visit. I really loved that about Hudson.

For years they hold in these feelings since Hudson is Gracie’s brother, Hayden’s, best friend. Now Gracie is a grown woman and during a night out with the both of them, she announces that she’s signed up on an online dating service and hopes to meet someone who she will lose her virginity to. This sets Hudson off into a jealous rage internally. He can’t stomach the thought of Gracie with another man, and so he proposes to Gracie that they get together three times and he will be the one to teach her the ways of sex. The problem with this idea is they both have deep feelings for each other and how will they be able to just walk away after the third date?

Hudson had a reputation for being a playboy, but it was only to help keep himself from going after Gracie. At first he comes off so super sweet but when they enter into this sexual arrangement, the sexy dirty talker appears and holy crap my panties were melting right along with Gracie’s.


The big dilemma of this short story is once things start getting sexual, how will they be able to keep things strictly physical and avoid letting emotions take over??

I really enjoyed this story. It was incredibly steamy and a bit low on the angst. I wish that it had been a full length novel because I would have loved to get more of the build up to the romance between the two main characters, and that was my only issue with the book. It would have been nice to add in some angst and make the road to their HEA a little bit longer. But I understand that Kendall didn’t originally plan to write Hudson and Gracie’s story and this came to her as an idea after finishing Screwed.

This was an enjoyable and fast paced read. Great when you are looking for a filler. 🙂
