What’s more fun than having fellow Tule author Shelli Stevens drop by? Not much! Shelli is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who read her first romance novel when she snatched it off her mother’s bookshelf at the age of eleven. One taste and she was forever hooked. It wasn’t until many years later that she decided to pursue writing stories of her own. By then, she acknowledged the voices in her head didn’t make her crazy, they made her a writer.
Shelli is a true pluviophile (lover of rain) and currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and two daughters. She writes various genres of romance, but is most known for her contemporary series such as Holding Out for a Hero, The McLaughlins, and A is for Alpha. She’s a compulsive volunteer, and has been known to spontaneously burst into song.
Take it away, Shelli…
Hey all! I’m Shelli Stevens. I’m a Pacific Northwest Native and a sucker for reading and writing romance novels. The harder it is to get the hero and heroine together? The more fun the book is for me. So when the idea of the Bro Code popped into my mind on a flight home from a writing event, I was super excited. I grew up with three brothers and was a bit of a tomboy when I was younger. I gravitated toward hanging with the guys many times in my life. Girly stuff was totally over my head. Like, mascara? What kind of torture device was that? It wasn’t until college did I have friends who started teaching me makeup and fashion. Now I’m a good mix of both. I can easily hang with the guys or the girls. And I love a good a mascara. But I feel like I have a decent understanding of what’s going on in a guy’s head (I’m sure the male population in my life would argue this 🤣). So delving into this series was a ton of fun for me.
So what is the The Bro Code series about? It’s pretty much what is sounds like. It shows the different rules my heroes have to break to find the love of their life. Whether the rule is “don’t sleep with your friend’s sister,” or “don’t go after your friend’s ex,” they’re all pretty big hurdles my heroes will have to clear. Emotions will get high. In the three books I’ve written so far (possibly more later?), the heroes are connected via a fraternity they were once in. After enduring a tragedy, their friendship became more of a brotherhood.
My book Losing It, which is out today is that first rule: Thou shalt not sleep with thy friend’s sister. It has a heroine who wants to ditch the virgin status while on vacation, and a hero who’s a bit of a player and wants to do what he can to stop her reckless plan. Or at least protect her if she’d determined to go through with it. (Also, he happens to be her brother’s best friend).
All these stories have bit of humor, can be mildly sexy, and one even has a little suspense. If you pick them up, I hope you enjoy them and considering a rating and/or review.
Thanks for having me here, Nan!

It was basically the number one rule of the bro code, and Blake Wolfe just came dangerously close to breaking it. How could he know that the gorgeous woman he made out with at a party was his friend’s little sister? Now that he knows, she is hands off…which is easier said than done.
Kristen Watson is in Seattle for a much-needed vacation after graduating college. Though she has more planned than just hanging out with her bestie—it’s also the perfect time to ditch her virgin status and have a little fun before joining the real world. But finding the perfect guy is proving harder than she expected, especially when the perfect guy is apparently off-limits.
Blake knows trying to dissuade Kristen from the plan is useless. So he does the next best thing and volunteers to be her wingman. But helping her pick “the one” might be as challenging as trying not to claim her for himself.
