Sunny Shelly’s Review: My Brother’s Forbidden Friend by Piper Rayne

My Brother’s Forbidden Friend by Piper Rayne is now live!

I’ve gone from crushing on my brother’s best friend to wanting to crush him.

Cameron Baker and I have a few things in common. The first being that we were both born and raised in our small Alaskan town. Second, is that we hide our feelings and keep our hearts closed off from anyone who could break them.

But hiding my feelings is harder to do with Cam than most. When I was five years old, grieving the loss of my mother, he showed me how big his heart is, and I’ve never forgotten.

He comes from the richest family in town. Cam’s bad boy gorgeous, flirts like he has a Doctorate in charm, and he’s my brother’s best friend. That last part is where it gets tricky and the sole reason we’ve never crossed the line.

Now, his parents have cut him off to force him to prove himself. I never thought he’d open a competing business to mine. So, I do what I do best, shove all my feelings aside and ready myself to crush him. Game on.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

The Greene family series comes to a wonderful conclusion with Chevelle and Cameron’s story and it was so worth the wait! I have been not-so-patiently waiting for this brother’s best friend romance, and the story that Piper Rayne delivered checked every box!

There is a great use of the history between Chevelle and Cam in this story, and how their friendship (and her crush on him) was born the day of her mom’s funeral when she was swinging on a swing in the backyard wearing a purple dress. Their mother’s death impacted Chevelle in such a different way than it did the rest of her siblings — first, she was the youngest, and second, Laurie drowned trying to rescue her from falling through the ice. Chevelle has carried around that guilt for so very long, and Cam always *saw* her in a way that the rest of her family didn’t.

While Cam has a reputation for being a playboy, he was all in once he realized that he could no longer deny his feelings for Chevelle — and that she felt the same way even though she was afraid to acknowledge it and lose him the way that she lost her mother. Cam was so swoony as he set out to convince Chevelle that they should legitimately see where their attraction led them, and his meeting with Fisher and the rest of the brothers to ask their permission was just so sweet!

These two characters really bring out the best in one another. In Chevelle, Cam had the unwavering support he needed to make his secret dream a reality. And with Cam by her side, Chevelle was able to let go of the guilt she’s been carrying around for far too long and believe that she deserved to happiness.

I LOVED how the swing, the lake where Laurie Green drowned, and the color purple all tied into Cam and Chevelle’s happily ever after at the end of this book!

Well done, ladies! I received a complimentary copy and voluntarily left a review.
