Everything in moderation. Including virtue.

I step off the plane in Madrid and meet his warm eyes. His crooked smile. His devastating charm.
Worse, he’s courteous. Honorable. Sensuous. Impossibly attractive.

Tavo awakens my desires—my body—without even touching it.
I don’t want to be attracted to him. I’ve made my promises.
My future has already been determined. I’m wearing a ring.

But I can’t control this pull to him.
He wants to explore my shadows.
I want to get out of the light.

I shouldn’t feel this way…
Problem is, I can’t restrain my heart.




“IF YOU FACE THE SUN, THOUGH YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE A SHADOW. That’s the way it works. We all cast shadows behind us. Better to take a look and see whats there than to be scared of it.” TAVO to KIM
As always with this series of standalones set in Love in Translation series. The stories are down to earth, with hot sexy loving and you can feel the connection and emotions jumping of the pages.
We meet some others characters we’ve met before, but this can definitely a standalone. The story is told from alternate pov’s which makes you fall in love with the characters much faster.
This is the story of Kim Brown who comes to Spain to find the learn Spanish, and finds her true calling in life in more ways than one.
Kim has come from America with a very conventional background. It’s not until going to college in Spain, falling in love with the climate, the food and one of the men Tavo that her life blossoms. This is a beautiful love story that brings the ambiance of Spain to life, so you can feel how Kim falls in love with the life realistically. As always with Leslie’s books it feels like I’ve been on holiday and been re-energized . Wait until you meet Tavo, you will understand the Olive Oil reference much better.





About the Author

She lives in a drafty old farmhouse on a small orange tree farm in Southern California with her husband and two small children. Leslie always encourages her kids to be themselves – even if it means letting her daughter wear leopard print from head to toe. An avid reader from a young age, she will always trade watching TV for reading a book, unless it’s Top Gear. Or football. Leslie is employed by day but spends her nights writing about the men you fantasize about. She’s unapologetically sarcastic and notoriously terrible at comma placement (that’s what editors are for!). Always up for a laugh, Leslie tries to see humor in all things. When she’s not in the writing cave you’ll find her fangirling over Beck, camping with her family, or mixing up oil paints to depict her love of outdoors on canvas.

ARC Review: BRO CODE By KENDALL RYAN @RyanKendall1






From New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a flirty new standalone about falling for your older brother’s best friend.

There’s pretty much only one rule when you’re a guy.

Don’t be a douche.

Turns out, the fastest way to break that rule is to fall for your best friend’s sister.

Ava’s brilliant, sharp-tongued, gorgeous, and five years younger than me.

She’s the sexual equivalent of running with scissors. In a word, she’s dangerous. And completely off-limits.

Falling for her could ruin everything.

Yet I can’t seem to stop, even when her company is threatened by a lawsuit, and my promotion hinges on representing the opposing client—and winning.

I can’t see a way out of this mess that doesn’t end in a broken friendship, a broken heart, or a ruined career.

I may have broken the bro code when I fell for Ava. But do I have the balls to handle what comes next?

Kendall Ryan puts her own take on the forbidden trope of best friend’s little sister in her newest release, BRO CODE, and while Barrett Wilson is all about keeping to the code, but when an older, brilliant, feisty, and beautiful Ava Saunders re-enters his life, her off-limits status becomes a bit more problematic, especially when Ava’s boldness lays things out for Barrett in a way that cannot be misinterpreted…Ava wants Barrett, and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to act on the feelings she’s always had for him because the sexual tension that surrounds them is just too overwhelming to deny.
One reason I love stories that bring a guy’s best friend and his sister together is because readers are there from the beginning, watching the guy and the girl do everything in their power to remain only friends because giving into the attraction would spell trouble for all three of their relationships, while still knowing that the line is going to be crossed and there’s really no way of stopping it from happening, which means that at the will they or won’t they question as it applies to Barrett and Ava dramatically plays out, readers get to hear the characters’ internal struggles and become aware of their true feelings for the person they are not supposed to want.
Ava is a very likeable heroine whose sharp and witty tongue makes her one of my favorite Kendall Ryan female leads. Ava is all about learning new things and is passionate about an array of topics. I love that she wants to run her father’s company and she wants to do it in a way that will make him proud but also put her own spin on it. .
Ava and Barrett’s story is funny, full of hilarious moments, sexual tension, and witty exchanges, and this is definitely one of my favorite books by Kendall Ryan. I would like to say pure perfection, everything flowed so well it was a pleasure to read.
