An enemies-to-lovers romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis. Standalone with an HEA and no cliff-hanger.

I’m in love with my best friend’s girl.
She knows it. He knows it. Everyone knows it.
Faye will never be mine, but try telling that to my stupid heart.
An endless rotation of girls streams in and out of my bedroom in a desperate attempt to forget her, but nothing eases the horrid ache in my chest. Rejection isn’t anything new for me, but it hasn’t gotten any easier.
Until she reappears in my life. Like an out-of-control tornado. Storming in, all fierce and angry, ready to steamroll everything in her path. Rachel is trouble with a capital T bundled in a gorgeous, sexy, Irish package.
She pushes all the wrong buttons, and I can’t decide if I want to yell at her or kiss her.
I should steer clear.
But I’ve never been very good at taking my own advice. Especially when it comes to girls I can’t have and shouldn’t want.

I need to escape.
To put as much distance between me and that monster so I can start living my life.
Yet, even the vast Atlantic Ocean isn’t enough to sever the connection. To allow me to forget how he’s ruined me. His hold is more than just physical. He has a vise grip on my head and my heart, and I can’t breathe, can’t think, can’t function.
So, I do everything to blot it out.
Until he reappears in my life.
Brad McConaughey. So hot. So infuriating. So in love with my best friend.
Every word out of Brad’s mouth makes me want to throat punch him or kick him in the nuts.
But he makes me feel, and I hate him for it. A part of me might actually love him for it.
I should keep my distance, but like destructive magnets, we are drawn together.
This isn’t going to end well.
I know it. He knows it.
But we’re powerless to resist.

Saving Brad by Siobhan Davis (The Kennedy Boys, #5) 

Saving Brad (The Kennedy Boys, #5)Finally, I repeat, FINALLY Brad has a reason to let go of his obsession with Faye. He has endured being the third wheel on Kyler and Faye’s bicycle built for two, survived his manwhore ways, relatively unscathed, unless you count the damage to his soul and self-respect.

Rachel, Faye’s best friend has moved across the pond to begin another chapter in her life. What no one knows is that she is also on the run from a nightmare of betrayal and the monster who can crush her spirit with a look and a twisted command. While it’s no secret that Brad and Rachel are like oil and water, when their backs are against the wall and they need a shoulder to lean on, there is an unspoken alliance, perhaps shared pain from the past that brings them together, sometimes by accident, sometimes by design and need.

Could it be that this abrasive woman is the very thing Brad needs to realize the difference between his emotional obsession with Faye and true, soul-deep love? Have the events they both must face skewed their emotions? Sometimes when life is the most painful, what you need to be strong is standing right in front of you, arms open wide.

SAVING BRAD may be Siobhan Davis’ crowning glory in a series known for angst, drama, over the top theatrics and probably one of the most dysfunctional functioning families ever! Don’t get me wrong, the Kennedys are a fascinating family, but Brad has always played the role of the sympathetic charity case, accepted by the family, but still not blood. He is most definitely the boy we met so long ago, so willing to do all he could for his best friend, including crushing his own heart and this time out, he still gives and gives, but finally gets what he needs in return!
The Princess of Pain, Passion and Angst has scored another direct hit to my reading heart! Thank you, Siobhan Davis for FINALLY SAVING BRAD and making it absolutely incredible!

I received an ARC edition from Siobhan Davis!
