Publisher's Summary

“You're not supposed to fall for your brother's best friend.” 

Brynn Miles thought moving back to her family’s winery was a good idea. But when you’re the baby of the family, life can get complicated. Dating? Forget about it. Not with her three older brothers acting like human chastity belts. 

To Chase Reilly, his best friend’s little sister has always been invisible. She’s so forbidden, he doesn’t let himself see her. Besides, she’s totally girlfriend material, and he doesn’t do the relationship thing. 

Until the night Chase sees her. Really, truly sees her. And nothing will ever be the same. 

Looking for love isn’t Brynn’s focus, and Chase is the one guy in the world she can’t fall for. He’s T-R-O-U-B-L-E. Untouchable, and just as forbidden as she is. 

But once Chase set his sights on Brynn, there isn’t anything - or anyone - who’ll stop him.

Author’s note: A childhood crush. An irresistible attraction. The cutest scavenger hunt ever. And a surprisingly sweet hero who puts it all on the line when he falls head over heels for the one girl he can’t have. 

The Miles Family series is best enjoyed in order.

talk about sweet syrupy happiness

I read 2 of these books now, and even tried another author with much the same storyline but I came back to Claire Kingsley she makes me laugh especially with her character Cooper.
I intended to go back to my normal themed books but couldn't resist hearing about Cooper. seeing as they suggested you listen to these books in order I thought id listen to Bryn and chase. it was the little bit fairytale sweet for me and much to do about nothing in general. the only thing thhat peeked me was the little Twist with the father coming back and what he's trying to do. I got a little bit frustrated about how they kept calling him Dad especially due to what he was doing.
on touching on the story I think Ms Kingsley when about it cleverly by getting Cooper to suddenly realise through thought process what he was doing and again it made for an easy out. this was done with Roland and Zoe as well.
it's like Ms Kingsleys MO is writing about introspection.
however, I don't think I would have been as kind as brynn and chase were to Cooper in some parts of the story as it took him a long time to come round. ...(I don't think that's a spoiler, if you have listened to book 1, you'd know how this family plays out.)
but sorry if it is.
I'll hang in there with the syrup for coopers story for the laughter that's bound to happen, but I can't wait to get my ears on Leo's story. it sounds like a NOT so sweet story and more along my line of story listening about missions and marines etc. also I wanna see how "good old dad" gets his ass kicked.

Brynncess Finds Her Prince

Overall 3.5 stars
Performance 3.5-4 stars
Story 3 stars

This was an entertaining brother's best friend romance featuring Brynn Miles and Chase Reilly. This trope is always hit and miss for me, but I was intrigued enough by Brynn and Chase after meeting them in Broken Miles to give it a shot. There's quite a bit of instalove going on in this story and I will admit that I would have enjoyed more build up between these two. I know that they have known each other pretty much their whole lives, but the switch was a little too abrupt for me. Brynn and Chase did have great chemistry though and I enjoyed catching up with the entire Miles family again, especially Roland and Zoe. I did miss Cooper's antics though, since he's absent from a good majority of the book thanks to his feelings regarding Chase and Brynn's relationship. There's some predictable drama involving an OW, but it was resolved just as quickly as it began, and I liked how the plot involving Mr. Miles continues to unfold.

Overall, I enjoyed Vikas Adam and Ava Erickson's narration as Chase and Brynn. I did feel like sometimes Vikas Adam sort of overacted some of the scenes though and it made him come across as too phony. His female voices were also a little too forced for me. I liked Ava Erickson's chapters a lot more, but this was still an enjoyable audiobook and I'm invested in the Miles family and can't wait to listen to the rest.

This book was a mistake

I like Claire Kingsley. But the narrators weren't that great and the content was worse. I totally get being the youngest and the only girl of the family--but she's 21 and her family treats her like she's 12. And she doesnt stick up for herself. And when she finds her guy-her brothers go HAM. It was ridiculous and actually made me irritated to the extreme. Do NOT buy if you're looking for a good listen.

Forbidden more like Ruin

Once again Claire got the voices right for Chase and Brynn.
Chase is the Modern day Mr Darcy but instead he falls in love with his best friends sister. They fall in love pretty quick at the beginning but then you go through all the twist in turns until the End. Did Cooper Forgive Chase? Did Brynn forgive Cooper? You have to read to find out...but you wont be dissapointed!

Forbidden Miles

Narration: While I usually like to that the same narrators throughout a series, I really enjoyed having different narrators to really emphasize the different characters in each book. I had never heard performances from Vikas Adam and Ava Erickson but they did a great job, and I can't wait to hear other works by them.

Story: The best kind of older brothers best friend kind of story. I loved Chase and Brynn together, I didn't even see it coming while reading the first book in the series but they had such a great story. I ached so bad for Chase and his background, I seriously had tears thinking about how he felt, and how the Miles family really was his family in truth. Such an amazing continuation to the family series.

Great story

What an amazing, funny, sweet and sexy story!
As with all books by Claire Kingsley, this is a captivating story with amazing characters and fantastic family dynamics.
I Loved Chase’s and Brynn’s story, they make a beautiful couple. And Cooper’s shenanigans when he discovers his best friend is dating his little sister - you gotta love the man and his energy!
The narration by Vicas and Ava is phenomenal and perfectly portrays the main characters for an absolutely delightful listening experience.

Really captures Chase and Brynn's exuberance!

Claire Kingsley's second book in the Miles Family series is a brothers-best-friend book, featuring Chase Reilly and Byrnn Miles. Chase has been a part of the Miles family for decades, and he's always had blinders up when it comes to Brynn, but now that those blinders have fallen down, there is no stopping him from giving them the chance they want, despite the opposition from her brother, Cooper.

I loved Chase's inner turmoil and dialog. It was flat out hysterical to hear how he went from "wait, what? Stop it. I can't think of her like this" to "that's it, I'm done, she's the only one for me." Vikas Adam perfectly portrayed Chase's youthful exuberance and his shocking transformation. Chase was shocking himself - and Vikas Adam made sure we knew it and make it so enjoyable to listen to and laugh along with. Ava Erickson was a great Brynn, capturing a young woman just discovering herself and going after what she wants for the first time, while simultaneously trying to show her family that she's not a fragile little girl anymore.

Fantastic narration, and a plot that not only advances the cross-book storyline of the series, but also give us a fully-contained happily-ever-after and evolution of their relationship that makes total sense. Claire Kingsley delivered on the source material, and Vikas Adam and Ava Erickson truly brought these characters to live. The result is hours of listening that will keep you entertained, smiling and laughing.

Perfection!

Forbidden Miles is everything I wanted for Brynn and Chase! I was seriously shipping these two while I was reading the first Miles family book, and I was so happy that Claire Kingsley paired up Brynn Miles with her brother Cooper's best friend!

While Cooper (and his lack of pants!) stole the show more than once in this story, I loved how Brynn and Chase's falling in love deeply affected the relationships not only between the best friends, but the siblings as well. It is a rocky road that they all must learn to navigate before they come to a place where Cooper accepts his best friend's relationship with the baby sister he is so overprotective of.

I love the fact that the engagement happens mid-book rather than at the end, because it adds a whole other layer to the "forbidden romance" aspect to Chase and Brynn's relationship.

As a couple, they are so damn sweet and everything about their story was perfection. The ongoing story of the MIA Miles family patriarch continues in Forbidden Miles, and we get to know half-sister Grace a bit more. I cannot wait to see what CK has in store for the other family members!

Performance-wise, Ava Erickson is fantastic in all that she does (that I've listened to, anyway!) and her portrayal of Brynn was spot-on. This is the first book I've heard from narrator Vikas Adam, and he did a good job, I didn't think his range of voices for the other characters were as varied as some other performers, but he did a fantastic job giving voice to Chase. He really brought that whole kissing-in-the-rain scene at Brynn's front door to life, and I feel like that is a crucial moment in this couple's relationship. But overall, I think both Ava and Vikas were great!

Chase and Bryncess=most adorable couple EVER!!!

It has been a hot minute since I visited Salishan and it was great to go back via audio. The narrators did great in portraying all the characters. Both of them nailed each character as I pictured them when reading the book. This was my first experience hearing Vikas Adam and he was a good pick for Chase. Ava Erickson has yet to do anything I don't like.

I forgot how many funny parts were in Chase and Brynn's story. I can remember giggling when I read it but hearing it had me laughing out loud. The bromance between Chase and Cooper is is awesome. The one liners they come up with just don't stop. That is one of the things that Claire Kingsley is so very talented at....the banter between her characters and the things they say, you never know what it is going to be.

Brynn and Chase's story is a whirlwind of fresh air. I love how just one day it his Chase that Brynn is beautiful and from that day forward his purpose in life is Brynn. He is willing to lose his friendship with Cooper for her, he goes to blows with her dad for her, he even rearranges his office for her (and a little for himself). He is completely selfless when it comes to Brynn.

Chase and Brynn are too cute

Forbidden Miles is about the youngest Miles daughter Brynn and her brother Coopers best friend Chase Riley. Chase has over looked Brynn all of her life, he has known her since the day she was born, and has never seen her in the way Brynn has always seen him. One day though, Chase saw Brynn making out with another man in the back of a restaurant and the little girl he always saw was now a grown woman who he couldn't get enough of. He was once not committed to anyone, against getting serious with anyone, and now that Brynn has his heart he wants nothing more than to make her life full of everything she would ever want. he will be there to support her no matter what, and will prove to her he is worthy of her love. However, he wants to do the right thing and wait for his best friend to get back from a trip to talk to him about his feelings for Brynn. Unfortunately things don't always work out as planned.
This book is filled with an over bearing family, a terrible ex, a crazy brother, siblings connecting, and of course the story line from the previous book still going on. You would have to read this series in order to really understand what is going on. But trust me its so worth it.
