Elise Johnson has more important things to concentrate on than men…saving her struggling ballet studio for starters! So when gorgeous Col Hillam—her brother's best friend—saunters back into her life, she's none too keen. He might be proposing a purely professional arrangement, but the last time they got carried away by their crazy attraction it ended in disaster!
Col knows Elise is off-limits, but it only makes her more tempting…. With chemistry this hot, surely that bro code is now null and void…?

A repressed ballerina confronts a past with a guy who supposedly ran out on her 5 years ago. Now he’s back with an unusual proposal that could save her ballet studio from tanking.

For a story with a title like ‘Breaking the Bro Code’, I’d have expected that the brother in question to have more than a peripheral presence in the book or at least the close friendship between 2 guys would have been more in the spotlight as the relationship between Elise and Col is straightened out.

The premise for Col’s asking for help is somewhat flimsy and while that impetus to reconnect wasn’t too convincing, I still enjoyed the unusual dynamics between a girl who can’t trust what she feels and a guy who puts himself out there for her.
