Let’s say you’re an independent, self-sufficient woman who runs the family company and you find yourself falling for your little brother’s best friend. Now, more than ever, you need to count all the reasons why you need to abandon falling.
Abandon Falling #1 – He’s a womanizer. Hasn’t had a serious relationship a day in his life and changes women more often than he changes his sheets.
Abandon Falling #2 – He’s never serious. He cracks one-liners, mostly at your expense.
Abandon Falling #3 – When things go wrong, he seems unfazed and always remains in control. It’s so annoying.
Abandon Falling #4 – He has tattoos. Lots of them. Everywhere. Not to mention, he owns a tattoo parlor. (Damn it! Why doesn’t that sound like a bad thing anymore?)
Abandon Falling #5 – There’s a growing list of how different you two are. You can’t get along for fifteen minutes—a lifetime together would land one of you in prison.
Keep repeating those reasons and drown yourself in work. Pretend you don’t notice his good qualities or how enticing he looks without a shirt, and do not, I repeat, do not agree to live with the man while your place is being repaired from flood damage.
Trust me, even the strongest of us can only forego temptation for so long.

This was the book I’ve been waiting all year for. Piper Rayne continues the Bailey family’s story with Savannah Bailey in their new contemporary romance. Taking place where the previous installment left off, we see the aftermath of Savannah and Liam’s wedding “love” connection. Determined to move past it, Savannah refuses to acknowledge that anything happened, however Liam has other plans.
Que my swoon.
I absolutely love, love, LOVED this novel–so much so that I binged it as soon as it hit my kindle and didn’t stop reading until I hit the acknowledgements. Savannah is a character that I related so much to throughout the series, and getting a chance to see the life of the family and their dynamic through her eyes just made that connection and relatability that much stronger. As for Liam…I swear these romance authors are making me fall more and more in love with men that are inked. Smart, funny, and determined as ever to get the girl he has loved for most of his life to finally realize her feelings for him. Liam had me fanning myself and smiling like I was told I won a years supply of burritos from my favorite Mexican food truck.
I absolutely loved how the author duo made both Liam and Savannah so real and intricately complex without compromising their signature comedic elements and lighthearted tonality. Deep, rich, romantic, and fun, Falling for My Brother’s Best Friend is an 11 star read that I can’t recommend enough. If you love contemporary romantic comedies with a flare of nosy towns, cock blocking grandmothers, and a panty dropping hero with a dash of independent women–this book is seriously for you!
