Description

A sexy new series of standalone romances from New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan. 

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.

  • New Series!!

    What a swoony, fantastic start to a new series by Kendall Ryan! This is the story of Maren and Hayes. There has been chemistry for years. Hayes has watched Maren grown up and his "brotherly" feelings have changed. Hayes has had such bad track record with relationships and women.  He can't seem to figure out what he's doing wrong.   I loved Maren's personality and her character strength, she knows what she wants and will use what she has to get it.  She loves her job and will do anything to save it. I loved the introduction to the new cast of characters and the business that they founded!  The dialogue is witty and the smexy times are so hawt! Swoon overload with this story! I can't wait to see the next story in this series!

    The Boyfriend Effect is a best friend's little sister romance featuring Maren and Hayes who have had a secret attraction for each other. Kendal Ryan has created a fun adventure between these characters as Maren attempts to help Hayes understand why he always gets dumped with his relationships. I highly recommend this well written book with its steamy attraction and a fantastic romance. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    This forbidden little sister of my best friend romance was sweetly sexy. Hayes was a serial monogamist, his constant flow of girlfriends ending in breakups had him wondering if he would ever settle down. I liked the way he finally realized that he was hung up on Maren almost his whole life. As with this genre, the climax built up for the big reveal to Maren’s brother. Enjoyable and well written.

    The opening sequence is down right hilarious, I could not stop laughing throughout this entire scene. This is a great start to this new series, looking forward to the rest of the friend group find their other halves. The storyline between Maren and Hayes is fantastic, with great chemistry and a wonderful friendship to base their growing romance. There were a few unexpected surprises that I did not see coming, which just adds more depth not only to the characters, but keeps the reader interested in its entirety. Loved the ending as it wrapped up nicely and you get insight as to who is next. I am voluntarily leaving a review for this book that I received free.

    A great start to the Frisky Business series! We have a brothers best friends/ friend to lovers that fans of this genre will go gaga over. Maren and Hayes story is so heart felt, with just a simple touch and a heated glance they sizzle. When they take their relationship to a delicious new level it was so worth the wait. A great storyline with likable characters made this a definite must read. I can’t wait for Penelope and Wolfe story.

    Hayes is a workaholic who lives with his grandma and owns an adult toy company with some friends. He has known Maren/Dove, 25, since she was in kindergarten and she is his best friend’s sister. Hayes has never had a long term girlfriend and has been attracted to Dove, but didn’t date her because of his friendship with her brother. Dove is a social worker who works at a nursing home and Hayes helps her plan a fundraiser and she becomes even more attracted to him. When the group of friends takes a trip to Haley’s grandmother’s lake house they end up sleeping together but then guilt takes over. Will Hayes and Dove talk to her brother about their feelings? Can they find happiness together? I loved this story about falling for your best friend’s sister. They had known each other for years but never realized the connection. The author did a great job showing how their relationship developed from friends to more and how the role their families played. I loved the epilogue and highly recommend this book.

    Hayes has been fighting his attraction to his best friend’s sister for years. When his friend asks him to check on her he reluctantly goes to her apartment. Maren has fought her. Attraction to her older brother’s friend. When he gives her a chance to help her workplace she can’t resist. Super spicy forbidden romance. Hayes was a likable player. Maren was just sweet. Great build up of tension. Wonderful side characters. From Hayes business partners, to the family members, to the people at Maren’s work they all added to the story. A great read!
