“Oh my god. Who that?”
I get asked this question a lot.
“Oh him?” I reply. “That’s just Ian.”
Just Ian is the biggest understatement of the century.
Just the Mona Lisa. Just the Taj Mahal. Just Ian, with his boring ol’ washboard abs and dime-a-dozen dimpled smile.
Just Ian is… just my best friend.
We’re extremely close, stuck so deep inside a Jim-and-Pam-style friendzone everyone at works assumes we’re a couple – that is until one day, word spreads through the teacher’s lounge that he’s single. Fair game. Suddenly, it’s open season on Ian.
He should be reveling in all the newfound attention, but to our mutual surprise, the only attention he seems to want is mine.
He’s turning our formerly innocent nightly chats into x-rated phone calls. Our playful banter sports a new, dangerous edge.
I want to assume he’s playing a prank on me, just pushing my buttons like always – but when Ian lifts me onto the desk in my classroom and slides his hands up my skirt, he doesn’t leave a lot of room for confusion.
I’m a little scared of things going south, of losing my best friend because I can’t keep my hands to myself. So, I’m just going to back away and not return this earth-shattering kiss – oh who am I kidding?!
Goodbye Ian, ol’ buddy, ol’ pal!
Helloooo mister not so nice guy.
“You’re mine and you don’t even know it.”
It’s no secret that I adore R.S. Grey’s writing and when it comes to romantic comedies, she is my go-to. So, when I heard about Not So Nice Guy, of course I had grabbie hands and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book. And let me tell you, once I got my hands on this book, I devoured it. I just couldn’t get enough of Ian & Sam.
From the moment we meet up with Ian & Sam, you can tell these two were going to be special. They were best friends and everything to one another. If you didn’t know better, you would have assumed they were a couple, that’s how perfect they are together. It’s just so easy and effortless. That is until one day, Sam lets the cat out of the bag that she & Ian are not a couple. That delicious news was like open season. And this news makes Ian realize that if he wants a true shot with Sam, now is the time before someone else gets her….
I gotta say, if there is one thing I just adore, it’s friends to lovers romances. And when it comes to Sam & Ian, I just couldn’t get enough of the two of them. They were so perfect for each other and it was so incredibly cute watching them trying to figure things out. I laughed and smiled so much while reading Sam & Ian’s story. They were so playful and sweet with each other. And Ian was the perfect guy: Sweet, Attentive, and boy can he make you swoon. Add in a touch of naughty and these two will have you furiously turning the pages.
Not So Nice Guy was not what I was expecting at all. It was playful, sweet and just an overall good time. i love how these two crushed on one another for years, but never said anything. Their chemistry and amazing friendship lead to some seriously hot tension and delicious sexy good times. I loved the realness of Sam & Ian. Sam had insecurities just like anyone else and didn’t want to lose what she had with Ian. And I just loved how sure Ian was of everything. He knew that he and Sam were destined to be together, so watching them fall was a total joy to see.
Not So Nice Guy is the kind of book that just leaves a smile on your face. It’s like sunshine on a cloudy day. If you’re in a bad mood, this book will fix you right up. It’s so fun and sweet, you just can’t go wrong. So, if you’re looking for a fun, light read with little drama and a whole lot of sweet, look no further, Not So Nice Guy is just what the doctor ordered. It is the perfect summer read. I hope you will take a chance on Not So Nice Guy and will fall in love with Ian & Sam just as I did.
