“You're not supposed to fall for your brothers best friend.”
Brynn Miles thought moving back to her family’s winery was a good idea. But when you’re the baby of the family, life can get complicated. Dating? Forget about it. Not with her three older brothers acting like human chastity belts.
To Chase Reilly, his best friend’s little sister has always been invisible. She’s so forbidden, he doesn’t let himself see her. Besides, she’s totally girlfriend material, and he doesn’t do the relationship thing.
Until the night Chase sees her. Really, truly sees her. And nothing will ever be the same.
Looking for love isn’t Brynn’s focus, and Chase is the one guy in the world she can’t fall for. He’s T-R-O-U-B-L-E. Untouchable. And just as forbidden as she is.
But once Chase set his sights on Brynn, there isn’t anything—or anyone—who’ll stop him.
Author’s note: A childhood crush. An irresistible attraction. The cutest scavenger hunt ever. And a surprisingly sweet hero who puts it all on the line when he falls head over heels for the one girl he can’t have.
The Miles Family series is best enjoyed in order.
Brynn Miles has always been off limits to Chase Reilly. She’s his best friend’s sister which put her in the “no touchy” category. He doesn’t let himself see Brynn, which has been working for him since she was young. That all changes in a heartbeat when he sees Brynn making out with her boyfriend at the local diner. Chase’s blinders are ripped off and he finally sees Brynn as the woman she is. Now he can’t stop thinking about Brynn and what he wants for her. He just has to convince her to take a chance on him.
Brynn is shocked when Chase actually talks to her. He’s always been around in her life, but on the periphery. Now he’s actually paying attention to her and she doesn’t know how she feels about it. She wants to believe the feeling he has for her are true, but there are obstacles. Namely her brother Cooper who is also Chase’s best friend. As for Chase, he’s never been more sure of anything than he is of his feelings for Brynn. They just have to figure out how to tell her family. Cooper was such an asshole in this book. I loved him in Broken Miles, but I wanted to junk punch him in this book. Until he isn’t. I have to say that he really redeemed himself by the end of the book.
Family is extremely prevalent in this book. I loved the dynamic within the family. Chase and Brynn’s story was such a sweet one. This book shows that love can prevail. I loved it.
Rating: 4.25 out of 5.
I think this book is almost as much Cooper Miles’s book as it is Chase Reilly’s. FORBIDDEN MILES is one of the only “best friend’s sister” romances I can remember that showed the brother truly feeling hurt by his friend’s moving on, rather than just being mad because the friend was dating his sister. Of course, Cooper gets his own book (RECKLESS MILES) next and it’s wonderful.
Omgosh, Cooper. <3
