    Flirting with the Frenemy is book one in the brand new series, Bro Code by Pippa Grant. I would call this a cross between the enemies to lovers trope, the brother’s best friend trope, and the single dad trope.Ellie Ryder thought she knew what she wanted in life. She had the career she wanted. And the man she’s been dating for the past two years checked off all the boxes. Until he dumped her on Christmas Eve. Not wanting to be alone at her own place, she goes to her parents home and who does she Flirting with the Frenemy is book one in the brand new series, Bro Code by Pippa Grant. I would call this a cross between the enemies to lovers trope, the brother’s best friend trope, and the single dad trope.Ellie Ryder thought she knew what she wanted in life. She had the career she wanted. And the man she’s been dating for the past two years checked off all the boxes. Until he dumped her on Christmas Eve. Not wanting to be alone at her own place, she goes to her parents home and who does she find in the basement but her arch nemesis, her brother’s best friend, the man who has given her a hard time her entire life, goaded her at every turn, made her life miserable, and maybe made her work harder, strive harder, do better! He is also hurting for reasons of his own. Maybe they both just wanted to forget their pain for just a few minutes, or maybe this thing was there all along and they never realized it. In a moment of weakness, they give in. Only this is the last night that Ellie will be the Ellie she knows herself to be. This is the night her world turned upside down and everything changed.Wyatt Morgan is Ellie’s brother Beck’s best friend. Beck was more like a brother to Wyatt and his parents practically adopted him. He and Ellie have always irritated each other. Everything was always a competition between them. Wyatt is divorced. His ex moved back to Copper Valley with their son, Tucker. But Wyatt is in the military and he is stationed in Georgia, five hundred miles away. There is nothing he can do. It’s been six months since that night, since he last saw Ellie. Wyatt has his son for the summer and they are spending a week at Beck’s house in Shipwreck, Virginia for the pirate festival. Only it seems like Beck has an ulterior motive for offering up his house because when they arrive, the house most definitely is not empty. Ellie is there.Ellie’s best friend is getting married and she is the maid of honor. It’s going to be a pirate wedding during the pirate festival in Shipwreck and she’s staying at her brother’s house. She certainly didn’t expect Wyatt and his little boy to arrive. Her brother most definitely had something to do with this. Ellie’s ex boyfriend is also in the wedding so to escape embarrassment; her friend is going to pose as her date for the week. Only as soon as Wyatt finds out, he steps in and ruins everything, making everyone believes he is her real boyfriend. “I haven’t laughed this much in ages. And all it took was learning not to hate Wyatt. Who knew?” Ellie and Wyatt are once again faced with that thing, that chemistry, that pull. Only every time they give in to it, something awful happens. Is the universe against them? Are they cursed? Or is she just afraid?This was so much fun. The wedding alone was hilarious. It sounds like so much fun. Wyatt was the swooniest! Hot military guy with adorable son who swoops in to save the day on several occasions! I say yes! Ellie was adorable as well. She faced so much and was so brave. I loved watching her finally give in to Wyatt. This was sweet and fun and sexy. I enjoyed it so much. This new series has so much promise. The next book will be about Beck and already promises to be hilarious. It is called America’s Geekheart. I can’t wait. “I didn’t believe in forever until I believed in you.” For more about this book and so many more, come and join me at Carol's Crazy Bookish World.https://www.facebook.com/groups/44036...

And holy moly the whole Shipwreck Festival was hilarious—sword fights, pirate costumes, digging for treasure, and so much more. And I cannot wait for Beck's story next! ~ Missy, 5 stars

PIRATES!!!!!!! I WILL NEVER NOT LOVE PIRATES!!!Black Sails , Captain Hook from Once Upon a Time , Pirates of the Caribbean , just give. Me. PIRATES!!!!! Talk Like a Pirate Day is one of my favourite things. I used to make a joke about answering the phone at work with my growly "Arrrrrrrrrr" in place in the company name and… Well, you get the idea! So Flirting with the Frenemy has pirates and LOTS of them, but it also has some of my favourite tropes and the quirkiness of Ellie Ryder who has become one of my favourite heroines to date!What happens when your enemy isn't your enemy? What if they're what you always wanted, only you never knew it?Ellie Ryder grew up around all her older brother Beck's buddies. That almost all of them grew up to form the boy band Bro Code didn't mean a thing to her - they were just the guys she grew up with. Totally normal, nothing special here. There were guys that could be counted on for fun, laughs, and to have your back (by extension because she was Beck's annoying little sister) whenever the chips were down - or you wipe your brother's stupid high score off his precious Frogger game but whatever! Wyatt Morgan was always more than just her brother's best friend. Wyatt Morgan was antagonizing and pushy. Wyatt Morgan was her enemy. But what if he wasn't her enemy and instead was so much more?I had emotional whiplash in the first chapter. First I was commiserating, then I was laughing, then it was smoking hot, and holy hell at the end of it I was sobbing because while I've never had a night quite like Ellie did I have had moments that made me feel like I wasn't enough and so I know that feeling all too well. I didn't know how this was going to turn around and they were going to wind up together but I knew because this is Pippa Grant we're talking about that it was going to amazing and hilarious. Welcome to Shipwreck, home of the Pirate Festival … and the Pirate themed destination wedding of a LIFETIME! It's also the backdrop of the wackiest, quirkiest love story I have ever had the pleasure of reading (at least, until Pippa publishes another one)! This town is home to some incredible pirate lore, banana pudding, pudding donuts (I'm drooling right now), pizza, a treasure hunt, and a salty parrot who knows how to walk the plank.No, not that kind of parrot…Yep, that's more like Long Beak Silver! Man that bird has a mouth on him and it's HILARIOUS!!!How do you navigate forced cohabitation, a fake relationship, your ex and his new flame, and being in your best friend's wedding party with style? You do it up pirate style! I want to LIVE THERE!!!!!!! (And I want to crawl inside this story and just stay there because OMG Wyatt and his tortured soul and Ellie being so tortured herself it just… BAH!!!!!!)Favourite LinesWhen I rule the world, peppermint crunch ice cream will be available all year long, because assholes who break people's hearts don't restrict their assholery and heart-breaking to Christmas. Who taught you to hold a pool cue, a blind monkey? I don't run without a heavy duty sports bra and my ass could squash a supermodel, but I won't apologize for being built like a woman. Wyatt and Ellie, sitting in a tree. A-W-K-W-aaaarrr-ding! … a corsage? A coriander? A makes-a-man speechless?"You better be good to her, or I'll slice your nuts off with my pirate sword and tie a cannonball to your ankles and shoot you over the mountains.""Can you take out the screen and shake it and make it work again?" she says desperately."It's not a fucking Etch-a-Sketch.""QUIT FUCKING MY SISTER'S MOUTH, YOU ASSHOLE!"The men are dressed as pirates, but the women are a dog, a monkey, and a parrot."Do you think that one uses bad words?" Tucker asks me while he points."No, that's a random kid he kidnapped with candy and donuts yesterday, but he's cute, so we're making him an official pirate with us."This morning, I woke up to a message from him that he couldn't ask for a better boyfriend for his sister, except maybe Levi, because his ass is nice than mine."Have you met your brother? He licks his players for luck."A Beck Ryder huh can mean anything from you're in my seat to clogged the toilet again to oh, good, meatloaf leftovers."I thought of you while I masturbated last week and then I ran over a squirrel."You need to read Wyatt and Ellie's story. YOU NEED IT! You have no idea how much until you understand some of my lingering questions…Lingering Questions - Are we going to get more than just one baseball player's romance because the potential with the Fireballs is well… like some serious buried treasure?Are we ever going to see the Unicorn Festival in Sarcasm because you know pirates are awesome but UNICORNS ARE UNICORNS?!?!!!What the hell did Beck do because even that teaser gave me nothing????One Click this baby now - and then you can anxiously wait for America's Geekheart with me!!

I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS love Ares but, man, Pippa really brought it when she wrote Wyatt. Sexy military man ✔️Single, AMAZING dad ✔️Great friend ✔️I mean, what’s not to like? However, it’s the banter, chemistry, history and lifelong hostility between Ellie and Wyatt that really sealed the deal for me on this story. I LOVE a good brother’s best friend/little sister romance and this one was executed pretty perfectly. Despite the name of the series, the reasons for Ellie and Wyatt trying to avoid their feelings for each other went beyond the typical bro code reasons and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. Pippa Grant is quite easily my favorite rom-com author because of her ability to combine over-the-top humor, ridiculous situations (usually involving farm animals or exotic pets)with the perfect amount of emotion and romance that has me falling in love with her books over and over again!

Sweet little boy topping everything off. Just really great rom com writing. *Complimentary copy provided for an honest review.

I can't honestly give a book a 2-star rating (which means, per GR, that the book was "okay"), when I actually didn't really like it.Pippa Grant is one of those author's that I have a hit-or-miss relationship with. I either like the craziness of the characters/story or I think the humor is too OTT. Sadly, this one was a miss for me. I didn't laugh at scenes that were supposed to be funny. And Sigh.

It made me feel light and free. It was exhilarating.Ellie and Wyatt have never gotten along from the time they met. He was her brother’s best friend from childhood. Fast forward many years and they still don’t mix...... until one night that they were both hurting so bad and needing a distraction. But things don’t go as planned afterwards and Ellie’s life is forever altered. Wyatt feels guilty when he sees Ellie again. They are both in the same small town, him a small vacation with his seven year old son and her to attend her best friend’s wedding. Wyatt throws a wretch in Ellie’s plan of parading a gorgeous hunk in front of her ex, who is also attending the wedding, so Ellie monopolizes on that opportunity by pretending that Wyatt is her man. But the attraction and chemistry is real although they try so hard to disguise it with their quips. They always try to one up each other. They are dangerous together. Wyatt was so sweet and protective over Ellie. Even though he didn’t initially understand what he felt towards her. Their arguing was foreplay spanning decades. I will never get tired of Pippa Grant’s books. They bring joy to my life. This book had the perfect blend of romance, drama and comedy including all things pirate. This story was unique and once again, as I mentioned before, crazy!

I enjoyed reading every page. There is a lot of characters in there BUT enough information to pertain who is what and so forth. Talk about two people who have known each other since they were kids, fighting still as adults. The story is based around an event & there really is a lot happening so might want to give this a 110%, it’s completely worth it and you will love every page.I am rating this a 5 & would most definitely recommend this!H A P P Y - R E A D I N G

Wyatt her older brother Beck’s best friend has just received his divorce papers and has had to accept the fact that because he’s in the Air Force stationed in Georgia and his now ex-wife lives in Copper Valley Virginia with their seven year old son Tucker, he won’t be able to spend much real time with him until he’s released from his Air Force commitment which is a year or so away. So there’s not much light and happiness there t begin this story. Now before I go any further if you’ve read Pippa’s earlier books you’ll recognize that Copper Valley is the same place that many of the later books in that series took place. And Beck was part of the boy band Bro Code which was often mentioned in the earlier book series as some of the characters played in an all girls band that played eighties boy band music and love Bro Code. Those are the only two connections to the previous series. None of the girls in the band nor the Berger twins show up in this story.Wyatt and Ellie have always had a strange relationship since they were children. Ellie is three years younger and as Wyatt’s BFF Beck’s little sister has always been off limits to him. Once Ellie hits puberty she too has feelings for Wyatt but knows she’s too young for him and has to watch him date girls of a more appropriate age. So to compensate for feelings they can’t express they’ve always annoyed one another to the point they actually convince themselves they don’t really like each other. Sort of. The years go bye and I’m assuming both are in their late twenties or early thirties as the book begins. Right after Ellie’s boyfriend dumps her for another woman she comes to her parents house and finds Wyatt in the basement rec. room trying to drink his troubles away. She’s hurting after her sudden break up and needing to feel wanted and attractive. So she seduces Wyatt. They have angry sex. Wyatt immediately regrets what he’s done fearing he could ruin his relationship with the only people he has left he considers family. Ellie misinterprets his regret as another rejection of her and then she runs out of the house and gets into an accident with a drunk driver that causes serious injuries that take months to recover from. Still not finding any humor? This, they have sex or even just make out and then something bad happens is a reoccurring major theme in this book. So fast forward six months and Ryan is planning a weeks vacation with his son at Beck’s vacation home in the vacation town of Shipwreck Virginia that is having its annual Pirates Festival, at Beck’s invitation. Ellie is also there to be M.O.H. at her BFF’s Monica’s crazy pirate wedding. She’s engaged a good hearted good looking local guy to be her fake boyfriend because her BFF is marrying her ex’s younger brother (whom she introduced) and her ex will be his Best Man and of course the woman he dumped her for will be accompanying him. But her plans go awry when Wyatt can’t help running off the guy she had hoped would be her fake boyfriend and inserts himself in this role. Because even though they’re still snarling and snapping at each other Wyatt can’t stand the idea of another man being close to Ellie. This forces them to spend time together both back at Beck’s house and in the town of Shipwreck. Which forces them to talk and eventually allow their real feelings to come out. But of course there are complications to overcome before they have their H.E.A.And it’s that H.E.A. or the epilogue that is causing me to downgrade this book from 4 or 5 stars to 3. Because this book ends with a definite cliffhanger. And I hate books that leave you hanging. Yeah, I know Ms. Grant always offers multiple epilogues to readers you can download from her newsletter. But one, I don’t mind doing this to get more of the characters and their H.E.A. but I do mind it just to find out what happened. And two I have a Kindle Paper White e-reader which I love but which doesn’t lend itself very well to using Bookfunnel to download this extra material so I’ve literally been unable to enjoy all the extra epilogues from her stories I would dearly have loved to read. So I’m really not very happy that Ms. Grant left me hanging here not knowing what happened at the end of the book to cause Wyatt and Ellie to have to run off in the middle of the night to support Beck. Or does Wyatt eventually leave the Air Force and what does he do for a living if he does? Also even though this book (as all Pippa Grant books do) had many laughable moments because of the Pirate Festival and the pirate themed wedding and even because of some of the unfortunate things that seem to happen every time Wyatt and Ellie get physical, one of the constructs in the book meant to be funny is a foul mouthed parrot. And really for me a parrot that regularly drops f-bombs and other inappropriate language wasn’t all that funny. Sort of a one trick pony that was funny once but not again and again. Not nearly as funny as the monkey Loki was in her other books. So while I really enjoyed so much of this story with plenty of laughs and a few tears, the ending just left me with a bad taste in my mouth.

    Flirting With the Frenemy is filled with so much fun and the perfect amount of heart, it's why I'm continually drawn to Pippa Grant's books time and time again.There is almost no better description than Frenemy when it comes to someone from your childhood who tormented you to no end, yet also pushed you to better yourself because you just had to prove to that insufferable being that you were better than all of their constant teasing. (Boy did I see a lot of myself in Ellie)Ellie grew up with her Flirting With the Frenemy is filled with so much fun and the perfect amount of heart, it's why I'm continually drawn to Pippa Grant's books time and time again.There is almost no better description than Frenemy when it comes to someone from your childhood who tormented you to no end, yet also pushed you to better yourself because you just had to prove to that insufferable being that you were better than all of their constant teasing. (Boy did I see a lot of myself in Ellie)Ellie grew up with her older brother Beck and all of his friends, but one in particular, Wyatt Morgan, never let her get away with anything. Their antagonistic relationship began at a young age and followed them into adulthood. It was only after a mistake, an evening where they were both trying to recover from drowning in their sorrows of losing their current relationships, that things turned, well, not exactly for the better, but something definitely did shift and their lives did change."Wyatt Morgan doesn't make mistakes. Not twice, anyway."-EllieMonths later Wyatt is still trying to apologize for that fateful night, but all Ellie wants to do is forget it. That becomes a problem when Wyatt and his adorable son, Tucker, end up staying at her brothers home at the same time she is. She's there for her best friends wedding, along with her ex and his new girlfriend. Ellie has a fake date all lined up, but when Wyatt shows up and spoils her plans, she isn't about to let Wyatt off the hook. Their antagonistic games begin just like old times. It's like putting on an old, stinky shoe that fits and his name is Wyatt Morgan. Well, okay...he's more like a top of the line expensive shoe that hugs your foot and you never want to take off because he actually begins to grow on Ellie, but you get my point. Wyatt Morgan is trouble and Ellie doesn't know how to handle his kind of trouble."Ellie Ryder and me? We mix as well as water and lava."-WyattWyatt Morgan on the other hand is visiting for a week with his son, Tucker. This is his vacation and he only gets to see his son a few times a year thanks to his divorce and his ex living across the country. All Wyatt wanted to do was spend a week with his son, digging up treasure, looking for the lost pegleg, and other pirate themed adventures. It did  not involve driving Ellie nuts, not that he doesn't get some kind of sick joy out of it. What is wrong with him that he actually enjoys pushing her buttons, but he does. However, when Beck calls and asks for his help getting her out of the funk she's been in for the last several months he has a hard time saying no."My brother's childhood best friend is the only man is the entire universe who can get under my skin and bring out my ugly faster than you can blink, and I swear he takes joy in doing it."-EllieThe more they collide, the more he enjoys her company and the more he enjoys her company the more he realizes that perhaps their relationship has always been leading them towards each other. What is he going to do once the week is over?The silliness, the themed wedding, the friendships make my heart happy. I can't help but smile when I read Pippa's books. You will adore everything about this book. I promise.

    FUN. That’s what this book is. It's just so darn much fun! Everything about it, all the way through it is fun. It’s also hilarious, zany, outrageous, quirky, steamy, evocative, poignant and sweet. With an adorable kid, a delightfully unique cast of secondary characters, an ex who doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of “ex,” a foul-mouthed parrot, pirates and treasure hunts, dueling town festivals, farm animals run amok, and a phenomenal theme wedding, this book has something for every reader.

With an adorable kid, a delightfully unique cast of secondary characters, an ex who doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of “ex,” a foul-mouthed parrot, pirates and treasure hunts, dueling town festivals, farm animals run amok, and a phenomenal theme wedding, this book has something for every reader.As only Grant can, she sets the scene with a quirky destination wedding that brings two frenemies with an awkward history back together, while giving us two popular tropes of brother's best friend and single dad. Ellie and Wyatt's last encounter involved broken hearts, alcohol and lost clothing, resulting in a bad accident, feelings of inadequacy and piles of guilt. Now, Ellie is staying at one of her brother's many homes, this one in the delightfully wacky town of Shipwreck, to be part of her best friend's wedding festivities. Too bad her brother offered the same house to his best friend, Wyatt, and his son, Tucker, knowing Ellie would be there.I adore everything about these characters! Both Ellie and Wyatt are complex, eternally endearing, and just a bit broken. As they set aside their childhood bickering and really get to know each other, the vulnerabilities that are slowly revealed make it impossible not to love them and be fully invested in them finally getting their forever together. Little Tucker, as well as Beck, whose not a kid but often acts like one, provide some delightful comedy as well as surprising insight that provoke the reader's contemplation. For those who don’t like kids in romance, I suspect you just haven’t met a kid like Tucker. His character is done extremely well -- adorable, smart, precocious and no verbal filter, providing some of the best moments in the book.Barring alien abduction, demonic possession or a complete psychotic break, Pippa will always be a 1-click author for me. Oh, who am I kidding? No force on earth can keep me from reading her books. I don’t give my book money away, willy nilly, but Grant has earned herself a top spot in my must-read authors. With outrageous humor that makes reading her books in public impossible without garnering strange looks, pointing and whispering, and her ability to pack an emotional punch and embed her characters deep in my heart, Grant always leave me supremely satisfied while still wanting more from her. She strikes the perfect balance of outrageous, madcap hilarity, heartfelt emotion and delicious sensuality, making me fall for every new character I meet. Whatever circumstances you find yourself in, whether your day is horrendous or fantastic, Grant's writing will make your life even better. I dare you to read Ellie and Wyatt’s story without laughing out loud, feeling your heartstrings being tugged, and having that satisfying happy sigh at the end. Go ahead and hit the 1-Click. I promise you won’t regret it.*I reviewed an advance copy of this book freely and voluntarily, having made no commitment to provide a review and receiving no compensation of any kind from any source for this review.

The banter between Ellie and Wyatt begins right at the beginning of the book and does not end, just softens up a bit at the end. But then, their banter began when they were kids and Ellie would tag along with her brother and his friends. They are grown now and Wyatt has a seven year old son from a doomed marriage (yep, get ready for some kid cuteness and outbursts). When these two meet again, it's at Ellie's parents house. She's been dumped (on Christmas Eve no less) and Wyatt has just received his divorce papers. He's not at her brother's, his best friends, house because there is a party going on there and he is no mood for a party. Neither is Ellie for that matter, but as the banter flies, soon enough so go the clothes and before anyone knows it, the deed is done and just three little words are enough to send Ellie running out of the house and to her car, crying and speeding away. Then tragedy happens, triggering something in Ellie's mind as the week of her best friend's wedding not only brings her fact to face with her ex and his new girlfriend, but also with Wyatt Morgan and his little boy....in her brother's home!!! Now things really get interesting and the banter and fun really begins to pick up speed as does the attraction and sexual tension between the two. But when strange events happen after the two become a little intimate, Elle's mind is set that they are cursed and shouldn't even touch each other. She is convinced that the universe is out to get them. Yea, go ahead and roll your eyes because you will do that alot with Ellie when she begins talking like that. This story is incredibly well written with a storyline that could come straight out of someone's real life (well for the most part lol). It's the characters that bring this story to life and laughter as they are brilliantly written and so very well developed, right down to little Tucker. The supporting characters are equally well written and a few are insanely funny. I mean come on, how could they not be when the best friend's wedding theme is pirates, complete with ...well let me not spoil the fun here. I absolutely adored this book and can hardly wait to see what happens after this books leaves us with a mini cliffie, and a glimpse into the next book which is Beck's story (Ellie's brother). I highly recommend this book and look forward to recommending the series.

I devoured Flirting with the Frenemy by Pippa Grant. It was hilarious and engaging and just left me feeling pleased. Wyatt is a sexy single dad and a military man. Ellie was feisty, caring and very likeable. This romantic comedy was a great read. ~ Liz

Sparks fly again, even though they don't want them to, but every time they try to get it on, something bad happens. Ellie becomes convinced that a relationship between them will always be doomed. Can Wyatt convince her otherwise? Will she succumb to the charms of the Morgan males? Throw in a supporting cast of warm and entertaining characters, one very rude parrot, and all the pirate talk you can handle, and you have one hellava good romance. I can't wait for book two!

    Flirting with the Frenemy was astonishingly hilarious and I absolutely had so much fun reading this light and quirky rom-com. There was never a dull moment in the book with the crazy townspeople of Shipwreck, the pirate theme wedding, and the accidents/disasters that followed Ellie and Wyatt whenever they got close. Ellie and Wyatt were fun together. Their witty banter and arguments were hilarious and I adore how they were so quick and nifty when they try to one up each other.

It is so true that there is only a fine line between love and hate; what one see as argument can also be seen as flirtation. It seemed like Ellie and Wyatt were the only ones blinded by their constant bickering to see that they were meant to be with each other.

    I really wanted to like Flirting with the Frenemy, but it took me 5 days to finish the book. I couldn't bring myself to read more than 3 chapters at a time and I don't know why.
