Audiobook Review: Bro Code by Kendall Ryan


Note: This audiobook was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Not only is Bro Code my favorite Kendall Ryan read of the year so far, but it's also just become my favorite listen from her ever. A fun, romantic story about a thirty-year-old lawyer bound and determined to make it as partner in Chicago and the twenty-five-year-old sister of his best friend satisfied me immensely the first time I read the book. Narrated by Jacob Morgan and Ava Erickson, however, had this sexy romance going up a couple of notches. I've listened to audiobooks narrated by Morgan in the past and I've always loved the cadence of his voice as he brings a character to life. Erickson, on the other hand, is a new-to-me narrator, but she certainly left me very much impressed, and it looks like she and Morgan were perfectly paired up for this newest Ryan audiobook.

Barrett Wilson learned the true meaning of family with his best friend Nick Saunders's. From the get-go, he was welcomed and embraced, so taking time off from his non-stop work schedule to pay homage to the family patriarch as he retires was a no-brainer. Sleeping in the same house as Ava Saunders, his best friend's younger sister, however, may cause his brain to stop functioning. This is the girl he's had a crush on for years--a crush that he can do nothing about. Not only is there a bro code when it comes to going after your best friend's sister, but Barrett simply doesn't have the time to invest in a relationship, especially with Barrett living in Chicago, Illinois and Ava staying in Indiana to take over operations of the family-owned factory her father worked hard at.

This particular trope is a favorite with many romance fiction aficionados, which is also why it feels as if there's a batch of new releases to choose from on a weekly basis. This is where being original or coming up with a creative spin on a well-worn trope comes in to play, and unfortunately, not everyone succeeds in making their story stand out. In the case of Bro Code, not only has Kendall Ryan written a romance that has bites of humor and angst, but she's also made sure that it's a story that's narrated to near perfection by Jacob Morgan and Ava Erickson. The fact that this was a duet narration was an absolute bonus, and it was the first time I'd ever come across such a delivery on an audiobook. I'm highly recommending you give Bro Code a much deserved listen. Five-plus stars. ♥
