Falling For My Brother’s Best Friend by Piper Rayne
Release Date: October 15, 2019
Series: The Baileys #4
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.
Falling For My Brother’s Best Friend is the fourth book in The Baileys series and it’s the first book I’ve read in this series, it can definitely be read as a standalone even though I’m regretting not reading the first three books because I’ve fallen in love with the Baileys siblings!
Savannah and Liam’s story is VERY bumpy but also very funny! I don’t know why but I was expecting a different story after reading the synopsis, I wasn’t expecting an enemies to lovers story, sort of mixed with friends to lovers, and I was pleasantly surprised by it.
Liam is Savannah’s younger brothers, Rome and Denver, best friend, he’s 5 years younger than her and he has a huge crush on her since he was a teen. Thing is Savannah is unattainable and completely out of his league or so he thinks…
Savannah had to take on huge responsibilities when she was only 19, she never regretted it but somehow she lost herself in a sea of never ending calls and fires to put out, she’s an amazing business woman, a great sister and yet she struggles with her fears and her own identity.
I loved the banter in this book, not just between Liam and Sav but also between the siblings. There were moments when Liam and Sav’s behavior annoyed me, yet I still found most of their bickering funny. There were moments that got me a little worried because sometimes it almost felt like they were bringing the worst in each other, which turned out not to be the case thankfully. I laughed a lot with some scenes, especially every time Sav’s grandmother showed up, but there was also a lot of emotion in the second part of this book. The Baileys siblings suffered a heavy loss when Sav was 19 and I really loved how the story between Liam and Savannah also showed us how that loss impacted their lives and changed their personalities. I also loved Liam and Sav’s chemistry, even though at the beginning they were also behaving like small children, their chemistry was off the charts and there were so many feelings! Sav’s tattoo story is one of my favorite moments, it’s beautifully written and it’s so emotional that I found myself hurting along with Savannah and Liam, in addition it’s a perfect example of even though Sav wasn’t ready for Liam at that time, she did trust him with something that meant so much to her and we got to see how he was so in sync with what Sav needed and wanted. I was completely engaged in this book and I wanted more from the epilogue which felt a little rushed. Anyway, it was a very enjoyable, emotional, witty book that had me captivated. I’ll try to read more books in this series because I loved so many characters in this story, therefore I definitely recommend this book.
