Blurb: I’m an outcast and a loner, named for death itself. Fate wasn’t supposed to have plans for me.
But then she came back—the girl I once kissed in a thorn-covered chapel in the woods. She came back, and I could no more resist her than I could pry out my own heart. And by some trick of fate, she wants me as much as I want her. The only problem? She also wants the man who owns Thornchapel, Auden Guest.
And so do I.
Eight years ago, I did something to Auden, something terrible. He hurt me back the only way he knew how, and so here we are: our hatred seasoned with pain and my loneliness seasoned with longing. The only thing we can agree on is Proserpina Markham, and she wants us to find a way to be together—all three of us.
If Auden wants to earn her as his submissive, then he has to earn me as well.
But with the discovery of bones behind the altar and the carnal revel of Beltane fast approaching, it’s becoming clear that Thornchapel’s secrets are much deeper and older than any of us could have ever guessed. And no matter how bright and merry a feast of sparks may be, it’s always followed by ashes.

I have to admit that there are some romantic tropes that I don’t accept well, and they feel like a “long shot” to suspending my disbelief. One of those tropes is the forbidden brother’s/sister’s best friend.
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I didn’t care too much who my brother dated (and vice versa), but when I read that trope, it always strikes me that it really is no one’s business who a person dates. Even more, if you are best friends with someone, it follows that you might like their sibling. If that’s true, as a sibling, wouldn’t you want that person in your life? I recognize there are all kinds of complications, but it frustrates me when a sibling becomes “off-limits” as shouldn’t the sibling determine that? This trope is front and center in Max Monroe’s The Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend. And, even given my ire for this trope, I loved it in the hands of these rom-com queens.
I think I’ve only cried once with a Max Monroe book; it was The Girl in the Painting. That book, for some reason, turned me into a blubbering fool. Normally, this duo of funny makes me laugh. Out. Loud. It’s one of my many, if not favorite, reasons for reading and loving their books.
And now…they made me cry again. Like tears in my eyes cry, while flying on a plane from London to LA. So inconvenient and embarrassing, but important to note as extreme emotions while reading, in my opinion, indicate the ability for the authors to write characters and story that I emotionally connect with. For me, that’s “winning” in the game of romance.
I’m used to laughing uproariously at the characters in a Max Monroe romance, which I did in this book with Bruce and his “-isms” and Cap and his candor. But there is just something emotionally sweet about this new book. And here’s why:
1. Milo. He is your typical best friend fighting his feelings for his best friend’s sister, Maybe. But he’s sensitive and thoughtful and “gone” over her. If you’ve read Max Monroe’s other billionaire books, Milo comes closest to Kline Brooks for me. Which is great as Kline is my favorite billionaire. There is just something about Milo that is self-assured and sweet, while wrapped in a $exy package. Everything you love on a hero resides in Milo, and he’s a big reason for my tears on this book. He takes care of Maybe while also supporting her own agency in life. He’s both empowering and endearing when it comes to his interest in her.
2. Maybe. God, I love an awkward, inexperienced heroine. I love when the hero steps in to educate and care for her. In Maybe, though, there is a strength even in her inexperience. When the situation between she and Milo falls apart, Max Monroe give her the ability to stand in her own strength, simply buoyed up by her friend, Lena. She struggles emotionally, but she still knows who she is. She carries on in her journey, and I love that in this book.
3. The supporting cast of characters. Beyond Milo and Maybe (that alliteration is magical), the other players in the story provide the color of this romance. Maybe’s parents and Milo’s lawyer friend, Caplin, provide the levity, the contrast to the emotional pairing of M & M. They make everything a little less serious, and I found myself laughing aloud at them. Evan, Maybe’s brother, made me tearful, out of his concern for her. I love when brothers adore their siblings, and he adds some emotional depth to this story. And finally, Lena. She is the sage. Honestly, I kept waiting for her to take on the “Cassie” role in this book (for those of you who have read the Billionaire series you know who I am talking about). Instead, she is Maybe’s best friend and steps up so many times in this story. I loved their growing friendship, and it adds another layer to this romance as I love a good best friend in a romance book to aid the heroine on her journey.
My Brother’s Billionaire Best Friend is typical Max Monroe. When you read it, you know you will laugh and earn a happily ever after in the end. And this book does just that, except that you gain an emotional depth that pulls at your heartstrings. There are so many emotions that run through you in reading this book that you simply cannot put it down. At least, I couldn’t. I began this at the beginning of my flight back home to Los Angeles, and I did not stop reading until the last page, long before I scheduled to land. There is just something very special about Milo and Maybe, and while the brother’s best friend trope might usually frustrate me, in the hands of Max Monroe, it is all magic.
