Synopsis from Goodreads
Mabel “Maybe” Willis died a virgin at the very young age of twenty-four. She leaves behind her parents, Betty and Bruce, her brother, Evan, a laptop filled with one too many Jason Momoa memes, and a Kindle library with more books than one human being could ever finish in a lifetime.
Cause of death: a text message.
Okay. So, I didn’t die.
But I may as well have.
One minute, I’m a woman trying to find her way in the world, and the next, I’m the sender of six of the most embarrassing text messages that have ever been sent in the history of time—or the cell phone. Whatever.
We’re talking code red, send a flipping mayday, the apocalypse is coming kind of texts.
And I didn’t just send them to some random person I’ll never see again.
No. That would be too easy.
I sent them to Milo Ives.
The man who played a starring role in all of my teenage fantasies—and my brother’s lifelong best friend.
And, boy oh boy, has he grown up.
He’s hard-bodied, blue-eyed, jawline-of-stone handsome, crazy successful, and has more money in his bank account than my brain can fathom.
Deflower me, please? I said.
Yeah. Send help.
My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend (MBBBF) puts together an unlikely couple based on their levels of quirkiness; Milo being the cool and confident entrepreneur while Mabel (Maybe) is the awkward book geek 😍
Having know each other from a young age, Maybe has harboured a crush on Milo for almost as long as she has known him. As time has passed Milo hasn’t seen the transformation Maybe has undergone from awkward teen to stunning woman, although her awkwardness has remained in her conversational skills.
Reunited by Maybe’s brother in a quest to kick-start her career, the intensity of the chemistry between Milo and Maybe is surprising to both of them. A lot of the story revolves around Milo doing a very poor job of resisting his attraction to Maybe. Their interactions veer from humorous to emotional and back again.
I completely adored Maybe’s adorable naivety and indirect directness, which at times was quite disarming in a cute way.
Milo is totally dream-a-licious with a bit of alpha in the background. The inclusion of Thatch and Captain added to the entertainment level within the narrative.
I loved the surprising plot twists and unusual situations Milo and Maybe faced within MBBBF which created a deeper investment to their relationship.
The peripheral characters are the typical off-beat quirky individuals associated with Max Monroe (it is kind of scary what goes on in their heads) I really hope Lena gets her own story 💕
