R.S. Grey's newest romantic comedy, NOT SO NICE GUY, is available TODAY! Get your hands on it now!
"Oh my god. Who is 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 work 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.
Add NOT SO NICE GUY to your Goodreads list here!
If you haven't read an R.S. Grey book...you need to stop what you're doing and get one now. When I say she's one of the best at what she does, I mean it! I have never read an author that makes me laugh till my sides hurt more than her words make me. Sometimes I even find myself wiping tears from my cheeks because the laughter is out of control.
"For 1300 days, I've been best friends with Ian Fletcher, and for 1300 days, I've convinced myself I'm not in life with him. I just really, really like pennies."
Not So Nice Guy is a friends to lovers book and let me tell you, it was LIFE! I couldn't get enough of this book but then again, I never wanted it to end. Ian and Sam have been friends for years but that's it... friends. Even though they've both wanted more Sam is scared to lose her friendship with him and knows that someone like him could never like someone like her. But little does she know that he may just have the same feelings.
Ian and Sam work together, and pretty much live their lives together. People already think they are a couple but they know the truth. But when word spreads that they aren't dating, Ian becomes an open buffet and the women are ready to feast.
"I want to lift my hands and feel the contours of his face, his nose, his chin, just to prove to myself he really exists."
Ian has never wanted anyone else in his life but Sam. He loves the way things have been between them but he wants more. He just doesn't know how to tell her because he knows how she puts on a strong front but really is filled with jello waiting to seep out of its mold. But when one night, turns into something bigger...can they move on from this? Or will their friendship be doomed?
This is a book that just makes you feel good. Their banter is hysterical and so fun to read. Grey is the queen of rom-com and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
