Publisher's Summary

I’m not boyfriend material.

If a trail of broken hearts and a piss-poor record of failed relationships have taught me anything, it’s this. My buddies are happy to give me shit about my latest breakup from here to next Sunday. Thanks, but I’d rather have a root canal.

And a vasectomy.

At the same time.

Relief comes in an unlikely package - the gorgeous and feisty Maren. She just so happens to be my best friend’s sister, so that’s not awkward at all.

But I’m a man on a mission, and Maren is down to teach me all the ways I’ve been failing as a boyfriend. Apparently, there are many. And it’s all very informative - until I start to catch feelings.

Now it’s not just my reputation on the line, but my heart, too.

A frisky read!

His not boyfriend material...

Another hit from a favourite author! Enjoyed every second of it. Honestly, this book was a life sent because I just needed an escape and it provided!

Now that I am done, do you know what I am going to do?? That's right, re-listen! Or, maybe I will get the kindle version and read it! Either way, diving back in!

The narrators were, of course, brilliant and outstanding!

A great brother's best friend book

I love a Kendall Ryan rom-com. This book was sweet and left me with a smile on my face. If you are a fan of brother's best friend books, I definitely recommend you check this out.

Hayes is taking a date from women. Maren is Hayes' best friend's little sister and completely off limits to him, but she's the girl he's always wanted. These two get thrown together on a project and the sparks are flying even more than usual. Though being together is forbidden to the both of them, they can't resist.

I enjoyed both Hayes and Maren and liked watching their romance blossom. I wish we would have gotten more of them as for real couple, that's my only issue with this one. Otherwise it was a great listen. It was narrated by my favorite female narrators (Erin Mallon) and Sebastian York, who always does an incredible job. My favorite part about it was the side romance with Hayes's grandma Rosie and Don.

I liked this one a lot, and I'm looking forward to Maren's brothers book!

good story line

I enjoyed the story line itself, what I heard of it.. Sébastian York is always great but this female narrator had me taking my headphones off for chapters at a time. The influx in her voice is like an extremely long winded flight attendant with a boring mundane job that she has performed thousands of time. I am sure she done her best but it wasn't for me.

The Boyfriend Effect

It was a quick & cute book/listen 🎧 and it has a HEA but…The female narrator was ugh to me and for this book! I love Sebastian York and he was yummy to listen to that’s the only way I was able to finish this book. Is it worth the credit? If you like her voice then sure if not just pass and save yourself from her annoying voice.
