Breaking the Bro Code by B.B. Swann is a teenage romance set in the 1980s about the choices that can change everything. Molly has the chance of a lifetime at a cross country scholarship and also has a dreamy boyfriend that knows just how to charm her so her life should be perfect. Except her dreamy boyfriend is cold and manipulative, creating constant friction with her best friend that hates him. Hayden has been in love with Molly since he met her. Too bad she's dating his best friend. When Molly's relationship hits some rough waters, Hayden takes a bold chance to show Molly that he could be the better guy for her and to prove to her that her boyfriend isn't who she thinks he is. Just as Molly and Hayden seem to be stepping towards a relationship, her boyfriend throws them a curveball that could destroy everything between them.
B.B. Swann captures the emotional struggle Molly faces through an honest voice that allows you to see inside a manipulative relationship. The story splits between the perspectives of Molly and Hayden so you're able to see both sides of their feelings and fully understand each of them. The romance has a fun mix of drama and sweetness as the two navigate going from friendship to something more. The story has plenty of drama throughout as Molly's boyfriend constantly lies, manipulates, and works to sabotage anything she could have for herself. Molly's best friend Cindy is a delight, completely overprotective and the kind of friend you'd want to have your back. She's scrappy and adds to the lighter moments in the story while also being both a driving force behind Molly and an obstacle in Molly's relationships. The story will appeal to young adults that love romance and drama as Breaking the Bro Code explores scholarships, fights, unhealthy relationships, friendships, and dating through the perspective of teenagers in the 1980s.

I liked Molly and her penchant for being on the straight and narrow. Gliding through school with great grades and just trying to maintain her goal of a track scholarship. But she raked on my nerves a few times. The phrase “book smart but lacks “street” smarts” comes to mind. Seriously, I wanted Cindy to smack her a few times. We should all have a bestie like Cindy. Loyal and a true ride or die friend to the end! Now Hayden, just a moment while I swoon please....*insert dramatic sigh with heart eyes*...he was VERY swoon worthy. So Hayden, he’s a jock with excellent soccer and leadership skills. He doesn’t play up to the typical player, king of the field, if you get my drift. Nope. He’s a romantic who wears his heart on his sleeve and only has eyes for one girl. Seriously, where were guys like this when I was growing up?! His buddy Mike is a sweetheart too and I can’t wait to read his and Cindy’s story next!! Now excuse me while I pop in my mixed tape and cruise the web for my next one-click. Like Doc said to Marty, “we don’t need wheels where we’re going!” #BackInTime #BringBackThe80s 😎
I didn’t know what the “bro code” was going into this novel, so I’ll explain that first. Apparently it refers to when a man shouldn’t think or, hit on, a girlfriend of one of his guy friends. And while you might think this premise leads to cheating in some way or form, this novel isn't about that, per se.
It’s about a girl named Molly who's living with her single mother (that tries to give her daughter the best life possible given her terrible situation). Molly is on the track team, is super good at it, and has a boyfriend named Trevor. Trevor, as everyone points out, is a dick because he’s constantly attempting to pressure Molly into sex, which Molly doesn’t want (because it could risk her running career).
In a ploy to mess with her emotions, Trevor dumps her (his plan to get back together with her after) but once she’s dumped, Molly gets drunk and kisses Hayden (Trevor’s good friend and a guy who has had a crush on Molly forever).
This is where that bro code thing comes in. Hayden doesn’t want to break the bro code by dating Molly, because she was Trevor’s girl, but at the same time he can’t keep himself away from her. What’s a guy going to do, am I right?
I don’t want to spoil the rest of the story, but suffice it to say, Molly and Hayden are adorable together, and everything that attempts to keep them apart is awful-fawaffle.
This story is YA contemporary romance through and through. If you like that genre, I’m certain you’ll enjoy this—drama and all.
I marked my rating a bit for the grammar. There are issues with commas and dialogue qualifiers, but no blatant misspellings or wrong uses of words. If you aren’t inconvenienced by small errors, you’ll be fine.
Overall, I would definitely recommend.
I pictured popped collars, acid washed denim jackets covered in buttons, and my favorite penny loafers. I remember getting mixed tapes from boys who were to afraid to talk to me, so they let Motley Crue say it for them.
I love the bumpy teenage drama Swann laid out in the pages. I love the purity of young love, and crazy besties who go above and beyond. I even loved the intricacies of the antagonists.
I miss the 80’s. Thank you for the reminder.
