REVIEW – BRO CODE by Kendall Ryan


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 ten 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.

Yet I can’t seem to stop, even when her company is threatened by a lawsuit, and my promotion hinges on representing the opposing client—and winning.

I can’t see a way out of this mess that doesn’t end in a broken friendship, a broken heart, or a ruined career.

I may have broken the bro code when I fell for Ava. But do I have the balls to handle what comes next?

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 lot of heart on top of scorching hot steam and there’s even a good dose of angst to top it all off. This is the reason why I remain a faithful fan of Kendall Ryan.



Barrett Wilson has a successful career as a lawyer for one of the top firms in Chicago. He’s on the fast track to making partner. He’s put in a lot of hours for the firm which has meant that his personal life has had to be placed on the back burner. When he goes back home for the weekend for his best friend’s dad’s retirement party, there’s one person he is equally anxious and dreading to see at the same time. Nick’s little sister… Ava Saunders. Barrett has had a secret crush on her for years but knows that she is ”Off Limits” due to the unspoken ”Bro Code”. The moment he sees Ava again, Barrett knows he is royally screwed because she is even more beautiful than he remembered and his code of honor is weakening fast!!



Barrett isn’t the only one feeling the intense attraction. Ava has had a huge crush on Barrett for as long as she can remember. But she knows he’s a ”player” and that any notion that they could have a committed relationship is preposterous. For the next few days while Barrett is a guest in the Saunders’ family home, the act of “keeping their distance”, will prove to be impossible. The attraction building between Barrett and Ava becomes too overpowering to ignore.



Just one taste of the forbidden has them both realizing that they’re in too deep and walking away could very well leave them devastated. To be with Ava, Barrett would have to put a lifelong friendship and a promising career in jeopardy. Is love worth the risk for Barrett?



Here are my overall ratings:
Hero: 5
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
