My Brother My Rival Blog Tour

SYNOPSIS –
Cody Garrett, a former Navy SEAL, has never met a skirt he didn’t fancy. His six-pack, rugged looks and bad boy image ensures a steady stream of hot babes waiting to slip him their phone numbers wherever he goes.
So, he is confused when Bridie Barker refuses to go on a date with him.
It’s not like she’s a stunning beauty or something. According to him, her ears are big, she’s well-rounded and she’s not even a D-cup.
In spite of her shortcomings, the more she pushes him away, the more he finds himself thinking of her.

Twenty-year-old Bridie Barker has control issues. Every detail in her life is planned.
Her closet is color-coded and she has an array of storage containers, to ensure that everything is in its correct place.
Her whole world is black and white, and grey areas are a no-no.

When she meets the warm and grounded Scott Garrett, she thinks she has found her soul mate. Unfortunately, and to her disappointment, things don’t pan out with Scott.
While waiting tables, she has a disastrous run-in with his brother, Wild Boy Cody Garrett, King of Body Shots, who parties every night with a different girl.
Even though he’s good to look at and makes her laugh, she turns down his advances as he’s clearly the tag-and-release kind of guy.
Besides, she is pretty sure he owns not a single storage container, and she’s certain that his closet is not color-coded.
Problem is, Cody Garrett finds her rejection an aphrodisiac and pursues her. 



MY REVIEW-
I absolutely loved these books! 5 stars all the way! Bridie is unlike any girl Scott or Cody have ever met. Bridie grew up in the hood and has 4 adopted siblings who would do anything for each other. Cody is determined to prove to Bridie that he can change and be a one woman man, although he has a very hard time giving up taking his shirt off and doing body shots.  There are a lot of ups and downs in their relationship and some major misunderstandings.
Book 2 starts 5 years later and is extremely suspenseful and you just can’t put the book down until you know how it turns out and you don’t know for sure until the very end. I don’t want to give anything away, so you have to take my word that you do not want to miss these books! ~Kendra


CHARACTER BIOS-
Cody was 6’3, with steel blue eyes, disheveled sandy hair and rugged good looks.
His confidence and cockiness was the second thing you noticed when you saw him.
His muscles were the first.  
A former Navy Seal, he stilled works behind the scenes for the US government.
His choice of toys were planes.
And women. He hadn’t yet met a skirt he couldn’t conquer.
His good looks, self-assured attitude and six-pack ensured a steady stream of babes who always wanted to take body shots off him.
Cody being Cody, didn’t mind one single bit.
It took only a few drinks before he whipped off his shirt and showed off his abs of steel, not to mention his tattoos.
When he met Bridie, she confused the heck out of him even though she didn’t have a banging body and wasn’t a double-D.

Bridie was dark blonde with grey-blue eyes, depending on how mad she was.
Around 5’7”, double-D, and with the right bust-to-mid-thigh Spanx, she could be a size 6. But on a Monday morning, she was usually a size 8.
Her make-up consisted mainly of bronzer and Strawberry Blue lip gloss (the blue in it made her teeth look whiter) and when she smiled, which she did often as she loved to laugh and had a sense of humor, you could see just about all her teeth.
Her strongest point was her sense of humor.
Her weakest point was her guardedness.
She always crossed the street at a pedestrian crossing, always showed up ten minutes early for an appointment, always paid her bills on or before the due-date, and always carried a safety pin in case the hem of her skirt opened or she lost a button.
Luckily, she had never ripped a hem or lost a button before.
A Boy Scout would have called her ‘prepared.’
Shontelle, her best friend called her guarded.

Scott was shy. That was the first thing you noticed about him.
The second thing you’d notice was his blue eyes. They were deep and liquid.
Around 6”2, Scott was just as buff as Cody, but unlike Cody, he had no tattoos and wasn’t comfortable being the center of attention.
He was always neat, well groomed and respectful, but he was no pushover.
He had a quiet strength to him that Bridie found appealing.
Unlike his brother, he wasn’t in any way a player. So when he met Bridie,
it took him minutes to fall for her.
When he lost Bridie, his disappointment was tangible. But he was respectful enough
not to cross boundaries.

CHARACTER INTERVIEW-
Cody Garrett

1.      Do you have a birthmark? Where is it? Scars? How'd you get them?
I have a birthmark above my left eyebrow. When Scott and I were little, we were horsing around and I slipped and fell, hitting the corner of the step. There was a lot of blood and Scott was in a lot of trouble with my parents. I got tons of ice-cream.

2.      What is your biggest fear?
I’m pretty fearless, but I hate to think of Bridie bringing up the kids without me.

3.      What makes you laugh out loud?
I laugh out loud at my kids.
They crack me up all the time. I love them more when they make me laugh. Juvenile, I know. :)

4.      Boxers, briefs, or none ;)
None. :)

5.      What is in your refrigerator right now?
Mm. orange juice.
Coke.
Milk that has passed its expiry date for sure, Swiss cheese, lots of bottled water and a bottle of Dom I plan to open soon.
Some other standard stuff too like tomato sauce and mustard…

6.      What do you value most in your friends?
Loyalty is essential to me.
Sincerity too.

7.      What do you look for in a woman?
Big tits, big ass, big smile. What? I’m being honest.

8.      Top or bottom?

Both please. :)

EXCERPT-
“Now,” he said, when he surfaced for air, “what the fuck is your problem?”
Before I could answer, he kissed me again, then said, “Don’t answer that. I’m sick of you and your stuck up ways! You’re driving me nuts with your bitching.”
Another kiss, before he spoke again.
“Show me how to act grown up, Bridie. I need your help here. I’m the eldest child in my family and I have a crude sense of entitlement. It’s what gives me confidence to achieve in life, but at the same time, it’s my downfall. It makes me a spoiled son of a bitch, and fuck, I never realized it until now, and baby, I really needed my ass kicked by someone like you.” He kissed me again.
“This ass-kicking, it’s an experience like nothing I have ever felt before. I like it and I hate it. Now, just put your arms around my neck and kiss me like you did before.”
I summoned a glare but when I looked into his blue eyes, my insides turned to mush.
To my disgust, my levelheadedness, my determination to lose him and all Usher’s Burn motivating lyrics did a David Copperfield on me and vanished. Poof!
To my disgust, I put my arms around his neck and matched the intensity of his kisses.
As I kissed him, the bruising inside of me healed and the burning ceased. He was a dose of citrus-flavored antacid to my soul.
“Now, that’s better,” he said between kisses. “Don’t you feel better now that you surrendered to me? Huh? Don’t you? Huh?”
“Shaddup!” I whispered, as I held his face in my hands and kissed him.
“Okay, okay, I’ll shaddup.”
“I don’t wanna be forced into anything,” I said in a meaningful voice. “I’m not into body shots, I don’t do threesomes, I’m old-fashioned in a lot of ways and I tend to go …”
“What?” he frowned. “You mean you don’t want to fuck me in the back seat of my Hummer?”
“No.”
"What about in an hour?"
"NO!"
"Okay!"
