The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister by Meghan Quinn
The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister - Meghan Quinn

 

Am so tired of hearing people say that nice girls finish last. Meghan Quinn throws that adage right out the window with Julia. She's the girl that constantly gets overlooked, until the day somebody got caught looking back. It's love at first sight for golden boy Bram Scott, when he sees his best friend's sister for the first time. The guy with all the right moves, proceeded to fall flat on his face. Now that he finally has her in his sights, all bets are off. He knows what he wants and will use any means necessary to get it. Failure is not an option. He's playing for keeps. The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister uses humor to knock down stereotypes and deliver some valuable truths. Quinn is good at laughing her way right into a heart with her at times unconventional, but always irresistible characters.

Author Bio:

 

Jennifer Woodhull is based in the Southern United States, spending time in her second home of England, and traveling as often as she can. Her love of travel permeates her work, and her characters often find themselves exploring new and foreign surroundings.

A keen observer of human behavior, Jennifer often draws inspiration from something as simple as a fleeting connection, or the glimpse of a unique trait or characteristic. Her favorite place to write is on airplanes.

 

"The drone of the engine, the scores of people, all traveling to something or from something, and being disconnected from digital distractions are a combination that provide the perfect place to write," she says. "If you see a woman in seat 9F who is balancing her Macbook on her lap because it's time to close your tray table, please have patience. I'm just trying to finish one more sentence."

The Dating Game (Owen & Nathan, #1) by Jay Northcote 3.5 Star Review!
The Dating Game - Jay Northcote

Five sex-free dates—how hard can it be?

When they were at uni, Owen always had a bit of a crush on Nathan. But Nathan was apparently straight, and Owen was too busy with other guys to take his crush seriously.

When Nathan moves back to Bristol after a year away, Owen hears that Nathan has come out of the closet, and he propositions him. Nathan doesn’t want to be just another notch on Owen’s bedpost, though, so he challenges Owen to prove he can be serious: five dates before they have sex.

Owen doesn’t think that sounds too difficult. He’s expecting Nathan to find his charms irresistible anyway. But as they grow closer, Owen begins to care more about proving himself to Nathan than he does about getting him into bed.

 

Review

 

This is a charming read when Owen and Nathan date after crushing on each other in college. It could be richer in that we don't really meet families or see their work life but the dating is great. 

I love the time they spend together and watching them fall in love.

Jack and Simon, (Owen's coupled roommates) need their own book if that don't have one.

great book and great characters
Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating - Christina Lauren

Anyone who knew Hazel in college might be horrified to learn she taught eight year old third graders. SHazel believes she is great for this as she is not afraid to make a fool of herself. And there’s something about an eight year olds brain that resonates with  Hazel on a spiritual level .Emily is Hazel’s best friend and a fellow teacher though Emily teaches fifth grade and is married to the principal-Dave- of the school she works at-Riverton. It was the last day of school and Hazel wa taking the stuff off the walls in her room when  Emily stops in. Emily let Hazel know that there was an opening for a third grade teacher and Hazel had applied and she knew she had an inside edge as the principal was her best friends husband but she was still waiting to hear that she had got the position. Emily and Hazel had met nine months ago in an online political forum, Then they met for coffee several times. The soon became best friends. Emily stopped in to ask in Hazel as coming ot her barbecue that night to make sure Hazel hadn’t forgotten. Hazel is talking with Emily and the other third grade teachers that may soon be her coworkers and they were talking about boobs then Hazel heard a voice and It’s Josh from college who she had always believed was perfect. It turned out Josh was Emily’s brother.  Josh has a girlfriend named Tabitha that he calls Tabby who had moved to LA for her job dream at a fashion magazine and they fly back and forth to see each other but Tabby has been unable to make it back to Portland three out of four ties as she has said there has been work emergencies and she had to work late or all weekend. Emily comes out and says she doesn't think he and Tabby have a lot in common and when Josh thinks about it usually they have sex and not don’t do much els together. But Josh made it clear he and Hazel were incapable when his sister said Josh needed more fun in his life and Hazel was fun. Then Hazel asked if she could give Josh her number in case he was down about Tabby not coming home and they could hang out together. The Hazel called asked Josh if he wanted to come over for lunch which he agreed to and she just made pbj as she is a horrible cook. Josh is a physical therapist. While at Hazel’s for lunch Josh gets a dirty text from Tabby and she never talks that way to him and it was about coming over for sex also she would have had to fly and miss work on Monday something she had never done. When Josh texted her if she had been planning to fly out after awhile she texted him back and said she was going to surprise him. Josh and Tabby had been together for two years.  Tabby texted Josh and asked him to come to L A that they needed to talk so Josh cleared his schedule for two weeks to fly out and be with Tabby. Hazels’ bathroom pipe burst and flooded her apartment Josh let her go rto his house with her dog Whinny as she had nowhere to go.When Josh got to L A Tabby told him she had been seeing someone else also before she left for L A she had moved out to L A to be closer to the guy and he had helped her get her job. The guy knew about Josh. Tabby wanted to stills see both men but that wasn’t Josh’s way in a relationship. Josh flew back home ad him and hazel started setting up blind dates for each other. Each one was worse than the one before. One night they both were drunk and had sex together.

I loved this book it is one of my new favorites. I laughed out loud while reading this and that is rare when I am reading. I choked up at times also. I loved Josh and Haze together and how they interacted. I loved how they got close after seeing each other again after so long after college and became best friends and went form there. Hazel so deserved a HEA. I loved how Hazel and Josh met in college when she threw up on his shoe. I liked how Tyler came back in her life and acted sweet but in reality was still a butthole and then Josh told him to  get bent. I loved Hazels and her moms uniqueness. I love the plot and pace and didn’t want to put this down. This book had me hooked form the first page until the last and I loved the ending. I also loved that Josh was honored to take his aging parents to live with him. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.

Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating
Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating - Christina Lauren

The awesome pairing that is Christina Lauren has done it again with this friends to lovers romance. The story is a wonderful combo of silly, sweet, sexy, and laugh out loud hilarity. Everyone should have a Hazel in their life. That one friend who's full of spunk, completely inappropriate, absolutely lacks a filter, and loves those close to her with all her heart. She's a hot mess all the way around and such a fun character. Broken down, this one is typical of most friends to lovers romances. Josh and Hazel are just friends, free to be exactly who they are and just have fun together until something changes. But the way the story is delivered kept me turning pages for the next bit of crazy this pair would get up to. The attraction is obvious, at least to the reader, and the chemistry between them is off the charts even when neither of them realize it. On the surface, the off-the-wall Hazel and oh, so sweet Josh seem like complete opposites, but inside, where it counts, they are absolutely perfect together. With a few fun twists and even a little bit of angst, this one is another must read from these authors.
