I’m wealthy, powerful, and able to get any woman I want.
So why do I feel so empty inside?
In search of a deeper me, I take a sabbatical from my privileged life. One year of backpacking around Europe: a new identity, no contacts, and no money. Not a bad plan, I think.
Until I get there.
A crowded hostel room, body odor, and beer bongs—there are no words for the fresh hell I’ve landed in.
But amid the chaos, I meet my new roommate, Hayden Whitmore. She sleeps in the bed opposite me, and I openly admit to staring at her more than I sleep. Beautiful, innocent, and smart. Not my usual type but perhaps the perfect woman.
There’s just one small problem with the divine Miss Hayden. She’s totally unaffected by my charm. Nothing is working, and now, I’ve been friend zoned.
But the good thing about me is that I’m an incredible problem solver, and I’ve come up with a diabolical plan. I’m going to slide right in under her friend zone. Be the best damn friend she ever had, hold her hand, make her laugh, and spoon with her in bed.
But now there’s another problem.
Hayden is the one who is sliding under my skin, and maybe friendship isn’t enough.

Working on yourself
Chris, the male protagonist in this story was something of a tool but he knew it and set off on a year away from money and safety to try and change himself. Kudos to that but Chris wasn’t always easy to like and that element wasn’t resolved early on. I stuck with him and it was worth it.
Hayden was a country bumpkin, so the opposite to Chris in every way. What started as friendship, didn’t stay that way. As is often the case with Swan’s books, there was a special character that stole the show when he was on page…Eddie. Eddie had my eyes brimming and that last quarter of the book nearly wrecked me.
This book felt like the funniest of Swan’s installments of these brothers and the laugh out loud-ness was real. So many monents, banter and ridiculous situations ruled the pages and I loved that. The chemistry was good and the connection felt real; time was taken and nothing was rushed.
I’m sad there were only four brothers, they’ve been a blast to read about but we have some epilogues coming in a book later down the line. Thank you to netgalley for the review copy.
