flirting with the frenemyTitle: Flirting with the Frenemy

Author: Pippa Grant

Year of publication: Out today! I was kindly given a copy to read and review

The heroine: Ellie Ryder

The hero: Wyatt Morgan

The blurb: Mission: Survive my best friend’s wedding, where I must play nice with my ex and his perfect new girlfriend.

Strategy: Bring the hottest fake boyfriend on the planet.

Target: Grady Rock. Master Baker. Dimples. Muscles. The unicorn of fake boyfriends.

Complication: Wyatt Morgan. My brother’s best friend. My sworn enemy. Military man. Sexy as hell single dad. The man I let into my panties for one night of hot hate sex after my ex dumped me before my life fell apart.

And the man who just scared off that perfect fake boyfriend. By pretending to be my real boyfriend.

I can roll with this though. What’s the harm in Flirting with the Frenemy if it helps me get the job done?

Complete my mission and move on. Or so I thought. Until Wyatt kisses me again and I start feeling things I shouldn’t. The thing about weddings…nothing ever goes as planned.

Standalone or series: Book one of the Bro Code series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: Pippa Grant has fast become one of my favourite rom-com authors, and this book only cements that status for me! This rollicking, hilarious rollercoaster of a tale is about Ellie, Wyatt, his adorable son Tucker and pirates. And boy bands. And Frogger (who doesn’t remember the glorious game that was Frogger???).

Ellie and Wyatt have known each other since they were kids. Ellie’s brother, boy band turned underwear model Beckett, is Wyatt’s best friend. Which means Ellie and Wyatt have been frenemies for a very long time. When Wyatt’s divorce is finalised and Ellie is dumped by her fiance for another at Christmas time, they end up turning to each other, which leads to a disaster.

Six months later, after Ellie has successfully avoided military engineer Wyatt, they’re both staying in one of Beck’s houses. Sparks fly again, even though they don’t want them to, but every time they try to get it on, something bad happens. Ellie becomes convinced that a relationship between them will always be doomed. Can Wyatt convince her otherwise? Will she succumb to the charms of the Morgan males? Throw in a supporting cast of warm and entertaining characters, one very rude parrot, and all the pirate talk you can handle, and you have one hellava good romance. I can’t wait for book two!
