I didn’t think I would enjoy a book more than Flirting with the Frenemy, but then I read America’s Geekheart and Pippa Grant proved me wrong.
This book was fabulous in every way that mattered. Beck Ryder, whose sister Ellie and best friend Wyatt are the protagonists of Frenemy, is an ex-boy band member who now runs a multi-billion dollar fashion empire. He does a lot of good and doesn’t flaunt his wealth, and his extended family and friends make sure his ego doesn’t get too big. But Beck makes a big mistake when what he thought was a private tweet to his sister is instead sent to her next door neighbour, Sarah Dempsey, who runs a blog about preserving the earth and all its creatures. Sarah is an environmental engineer who’s been laying low for ten years, hiding a secret she’d rather the world didn’t know.
When she’s thrust into the spotlight, Beck makes her an offer she can’t refuse – she helps him smooth over the mistake that’s made him public enemy number one, and he’ll help her get her causes into the public eye. Sarah tells herself she’s doing it for the good of the animals who depend on her to speak up on their behalf. She’s not falling in love with one of the most famous men in the world, who also happens to be gorgeous, charming and down-to-earth. She’s not.
Beck’s happy to accept whatever help Sarah can give him, because he has a major problem: he’s about a launch a foundation that will benefit thousands of children with a famous sports star, but he needs the public on his side. The more time he spends with Sarah, though, the more he likes her. When he finds out her secret, he takes it in his stride. He’s not falling in love with the quirky, geeky engineer who’s been hiding herself away. He’s not.
This book will make you laugh out loud, cheer, and completely fall for Beck Ryder. One of the best romance books I’ve ever read. You’ll regret it if you don’t read this book. Promise.
I read Flirting with the Frenemy rather randomly on Kindle Unlimited after I kept seeing it everywhere and then I got caught out dying to know what Beck posted on Twitter. So I immediately stalked to find the sign up for the blog tour. And like the last one it wasn't at all what I was expecting.
I loved Beck. Aside from the fact he is a sexy as hell underwear model he was also amazingly sweet and sincere. And I want one. He was so much more than I expected him to be. And his love for his friends and family was so awesome. But the way he felt about Sarah and the way he went above and beyond to prove and show how he felt made him so beautiful.
And Sarah was such a sweetheart. She was so passionate about the things she cared about. And watching her come out of her shell and use her sudden fame to shine a light on the things she thought it should be on was great.
I spent the whole book either swooning at Becks sweetness or laughing at the random humour and I am thoroughly loving the series. I can't wait to see where it's going next but Pippa Grant has now made my must click author list.
Pippa Grant you have done it again!! I laughed pretty much through every page of this book. Normal people might find the shenanigans of Beck and Sarah on the ridiculous side, but as I don't identify as normal I just find then endearing. These two are just magnificent together. They epitomise opposites attracting, yet to me they are meant for each other. There are a lot of minor characters in this story, so hopefully that means that there will be just as many books in the Bro Code series. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book
