Flirting with the Frenemy – Pippa Grant

Reviews by Yael Waknin


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.

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

My review

It’s the first book in the Bro Code series, and sometimes I prefer to read a book from a series because then I know that if I loved the book and the couple, they would come back in the following books (you probably know how hard it is to forget the heroes in the book when the book is over 😊)

This book is about Wyatt Morgan, a military man (already 10 points just for that) single Dad, and Ellie, who happens to be the younger sister of Wyatt’s best friend, Back.

The book begins with Ellie’s boyfriend dumping her at Christmas; she goes to her parent’s house (it’s night), and Wyatt is in the basement (he’s always at her parents’ house ever since childhood, because he has no family).

Wyatt is getting divorced, Ellie got out of a relationship. They were both alone in the basement, lonely at Christmas, and one thing led to another.

Now usually, with books that start like this, I tend to abandon it. I love the suspense and slow-burn, but I don’t like sex scenes on page one. But. And there is a big but here.

I’ve read different series by the author, and I liked her writing, so I wanted to give this book a chance – and I’m glad I did.

The initial part is just the prologue, and the book begins six months later.

Wyatt arrives at Beck’s vacation home, the best friend, so he can spend a week with his son (he’s divorced, remember?)Tucker. The house is in a Pirate Town – a place that by all accounts sounds dreamy! (When you’ll read this book and the rest of the series, you will understand why).

Coincidentally, Ellie is also there to recover and relax.

The writer gave us a military man, a friend of a brother, a single dad, and a fake relationship. That is 4 Trope in one book (Trope is the type of plot – enemies for lovers, friends for lovers, single dad, etc.). and still she managed to mix everything In a way that I thought was good for the simple reason – it was not dull for one minute!

The story was fun. The characters showed depth, vulnerability, honesty, connection, and natural and beautiful love.

They knew each other since a young age (a friend of a brother and everything), but their experience during their time together at Beck’s house was something else.

In the book, we get to know the guys in the following books, which made me want to keep reading the series because they were hilarious and exciting. Especially the next book – Beck’s – he was a very colorful and interesting character.

So, if you are looking for a light, fun, entertaining, sexy, and beautiful book – this is the book for you.
