A Sweet Football RomCom

This is a kisses only, sweet romance.

My best friend’s annoying brother, some spilled tea, and a crazy proposition.

Josh Owen’s is the top receiver in the NFL, with a bad boy reputation. He’s click bait fodder for any, and all, gossip columns.

A released video shows us “kissing”, and the news is spreading like wildfire.
Now me, "good girl" Brie, is in the rumor mills with him.

His agent sees this as a golden opportunity for Josh to get on better terms with his team.
I think it’s crazy, but Josh needs help.

In spite of our love-hate relationship, I agree to be his “girlfriend”.

Spending time with him, I get to know the real person, not just the one who’s constantly pushing my buttons.

I can’t deny that I don’t hate him.
In fact, I like him.

As fake kisses feel more real, Josh brings up making "us" a reality.

Only one problem.
When my parents died, my heart went on lock down.

Can the bane of my existence be the one who’s had the key all along?

This is a sweet, kisses only, best friend's brother, forced proximity, enemies to lovers, opposites attract, slow burn, and happily ever after. Let yourself get swept up with Josh and Brie! I hope you fall in love with the two of them and are left wanting more! This book is a standalone.

I loved this book by Abby Greyson! Some of my favorite tropes all in one book. If you like dual POV, fake dating, best friend’s brother, and a sweet romance-this book is worth a read!

Brianne (Brie) moved in with her Aunt and Uncle after her parents died. The only thing that got her through this hard time was her best friend, Susie and her brother Josh. Throughout the years Brie and Josh have falling into a sibling like teasing relationship bickering and poking fun at one another. Under all the teasing and jokes, there appears to be much flirtation and affection- of course it’s apparent to everyone except Josh and Brie.

Fast forward nine years, Josh is now a big time NFL player at risk of losing a contract renewal with his current team. His agent suggests the idea of “fake dating” and convinces Josh to ask Brie to “date”. Brie agrees to enter the muddy waters of fake dating in order to help show a softer side of Josh, a side they hope will convince his team to resign. Of course Josh and Brie continue to be the last to realize they have feelings for one another.

Question is will Josh and Brie finally realize their true feelings towards each other??

Tea time was such a great addition. The gossip reports were hilarious!

Accidentally in Love with my Best Friend's Brother is a football-themed RomCom that captures the hilarity and heart of fake relationships turned real. Brie finds herself entangled in a media scandal with Josh, the NFL's top receiver and her best friend's notorious brother. Their relationship, initially based on a mutual need for damage control, slowly peels away to reveal genuine affection and chemistry. What I truly loved about this book was its delightful blend of sweet romance and comedic moments, all while exploring themes of vulnerability and personal growth. It’s a feel-good story that proves love can be found in the most unexpected places.

Ever wondered if a bad boy could be your knight in shining armor? 🏈💖 Accidentally in Love with my Best Friend's Brother turns a tabloid scandal into a touchdown of hearts! Josh, the NFL bad boy, and Brie, the girl next door, fake it 'til they make it—and oh boy, do they make it! Their fake kisses start feeling darn real, and I was here for every juicy moment. If you're up for a swoon-worthy read that keeps the steam sweet and the laughs loud, this book needs to be your next pick. Trust me, it’s as fun as a touchdown dance at the Super Bowl! 🎉📚"

This book was so sweet. There is nothing to wild and crazy about it which is a nice change of pace sometimes. Brie and Josh have known each other since forever since Brie is his little sister’s best friend. I think we can feel all along that Josh secretly feels a little more for Brie and we start to see that with Brie as well. With everyone is everyone’s business in their home town the whole town now thinks they are dating. Everyone else can see the sparks between these two but it does take them some time to realize it. Does fake dating turn to something more?
This is a sweet story with just kissing. Mentions grief of losing parents as well. The author did a great job putting everything together for this story.
