Not So Nice Guy
by R.S. Grey
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I get asked this question a lot.
“Oh him?” I reply. “That’s just Ian.”
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.
“I’m going to write on her forehead with a Sharpie while she’s sleeping:
Property of Mr. Fletcher. Hands off.”
Loved it! Loved it! I swear that R.S. Grey’s book gets better every time. I feel so hard to Ian and Samantha that this book was easily 5 stars.
Ian and Sam met on their very first day of work and since have been best friends. For the past three years, they have been harboring feelings for each other. Ya’ll! These two were a pleasure to read about. They were both hilarious and sweet and just stole my heart. If you are a fan of friends to lovers romance, then you will LOVE this one!
“Everyone at school wants you”, she whispers, eyes wide. “Your mine and you don’t even know it. I never told you.”
The chemistry between these two was off the charts! I felt like I was going to die of hoping and wishing that they would get together. Even though being along for the ride was fun as well!
The writing was great and it kept me laughing way past my bedtime. I think this is my favorite R.S. Grey book so far and I can’t wait to see what else she comes out with. I highly recommend reading this one and picking it up when it comes out on the 9th!
