About the Book

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.

But my relief comes in an unlikely package—the gorgeous and feisty Maren. She just so happens to be my 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 feels.

Now it’s not just my reputation on the line, but my heart too.

The Boyfriend Effect by Kendall Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Okay, so I’m almost positive this is my favorite Kendall Ryan book of all time! Hayes is a man who wants to be relationship material but try as he might, it never happens. He’s also always had a bit of a crush on his best friend’s little sister, Maren. She’s not aware of this, obviously, but it’s always been there for him, just simmering. Until it boils over …

I cannot even describe how much I enjoyed reading the guy wanting to be in a relationship but just couldn’t make it work. That was refreshing. This trope normally has the female in that role and seeking advice from the xyz person. GAH, I loved this premise so much it made me giddy LOL The story was fun and sexy! I thoroughly enjoyed the group of guys and their bromance! I mean they co-own a sex-toy store lol shenanigans running amok! Everything and everyone was just delightfully fantastic! I want to read everyone’s story right now!!
