How do you date your best friend’s sister? Easy.
Step one: Pretend you want her to set you up with someone else. That will bring the two of you closer.
Step two: Go on date with lots of random women, proceed to get stupid drunk and talk about your best friend’s sister, thus gaining the courage to finally make a move.
Step three: Randomly show up at her apartment and confess your love. Women love that, right?
It all seemed so simple. A fool-proof three step process that will guarantee the love of you life to fall madly in love with you.
At least–that’s what I thought was going to happen. But my attempts to win over Julia Westin backfired in more ways than I can count. The thing about Julia? She’s smart–really smart–and her wicked gaze cuts through all the charm I’ve tried slinging her way. She’s not interested in games, my gifts, or my stories. She might want me too; but she’s not giving in that easy…

Bram Scott has been interested in his best friend’s sister from the moment her saw her. But Julia Westin had pegged him as an arrogant frat guy who was full of himself from day one. As Bram launches into an extensive plan to prove to Julia that he’s ready for a commitment with her by joining her dating business, will she finally open her eyes and give him a chance? Or will Bram find love with one of the lucky ladies that Julie matches him with?
“…I’m going to take my time easing her into the idea that Bram Scott is a relationship man and then…oh fuck…I’m going to throw her for a loop, catch her off balance, and then swoop in like a goddamn knight in shining armor and claim her as mine.”
This is a cute brother’s BFF and sister romance but a VERY slow burn. I really fell in love with Bram. He was willing to pull out every trick to get Julia to notice that he was all grown up and ready to date her. But Julia just doesn’t seem to want to give him a chance. And she drove me crazy with her head in the sand antics. I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to grab her and shake some sense into her. My absolute favorite parts in this book are with Julia’s brother Rath and Bram’s friendship. These bros absolutely love each other. It’s very endearing and comical at the same time. There were several laugh out loud and sweet moments in this story that I think everyone will pretty much adore. And also the growl out loud angst that Meghan is famous for.
If you enjoy Meghan’s books, you won’t want to skip this one. It’s low simmering but at every single step you are rooting for Bram as he’s a man with a plan. You just want him to get what he wants. And he knows he wants Julia.
