In R.S Grey’s hilarious and sweet Not So Nice Guy, two best friends finally give in to their mutual attraction and love.
Samantha Loring and Ian Fletcher are teachers at the Oak Hill High School, they became best friends when they met at the teachers orientation three years ago and have been inseparable since. Everyone in their school thinks that they together because of how in tune they are with each other and they are just in their own bubble when they are together. They literally spend all their time together from work to at home, where they have plans for each day like West Wing Wednesdays binge watching the show.
Their status quo changes when Samantha says they aren’t dating to their colleagues at work which makes Ian determined to make Samantha his before some guy decides to ask her out.
Ian thinks its finally time that they get together and starts teasing Samantha feeling that she might actually return his feelings but Samantha hates change doesn’t want to lose her best friend in case anything goes wrong but then Ian starts playing not so nice to win Samantha over.
I adorrred then together!!! They were sweet and clearly in love with each other. Just that the other couldn’t see it!! Both of them are attracted to each other and think the world of another. It was just clear from the beginning that they were meant to be together. I was smiling so much while reading it. Their romances is adorable, all their interactions are so cute and later passionate. I loved their banter, how well they knew each other and how much they truly loved each other.
Why not 5 stars: First of all, since everyone at the school at the start of the book thinks they are dating and it wasn’t really an issue then why did it really become one ? Apart from the email obviously, it just was ??? I was confused. Then I just didn’t really like the way the wedding happened, it felt rushed which it was but it felt too soon and very not in line with the Sam’s earlier behaviour. Not that she couldn’t be spontaneous and she was in love but the whole of the wedding made me feel like I was reading about a YA couple instead of an adult one. It was a sudden shift in tone that left me feeling a bit puzzled.
Overall, a wonderful and funny book about a adorable couple that you have to read if you’re a fan of rom coms. If you like your romance angst free and light hearted with laugh out loud moments this one is for you. It was just a lot of fun to read. I think this might one of the cutest and funniest friends to lovers book I’ve read!!!
