“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.

MY RATING: 5 stars


R.S. Grey has won me over time and again — one of my auto-buy authors — so I wasn’t surprised how much I adored Not So Nice Guy. However, I have not rated a book 5 stars since early last summer! OKAY, FINE…I’M STINGY WITH MY STAR RATINGS! But, it’s saying something that I FINALLY thought a book worthy of my coveted 5 star rEview!

A hilarious friends to lovers story between two school teachers that’s utterly sweet while bringing the smolder, Not So Nice Guy is everything!

I think a big part of why I loved this book is how relatable it was for me. The premise parallels my own life (yup, the husband and I were friends for 10 years before we caved to the feels). It also reminds me, as the blurb says, of my OTP — Jim and Pam from The Office.

I could not get enough of Ian! The title is completely fitting — he’s a sweet, intellectual character who has a dirty talking, smexy beast caged underneath! That’s right; SMEXY! And Sam…she’s funny, quirky, awkward, and totally unaware…in all the best ways. Some may think “ohhh, another girl who doesn’t know she’s beautiful,” but I find her realistic. I love these two!

Overall, as with all of Rachel’s books, I absolutely recommend Not So Nice Guy! Romance readers, especially fans of rom-coms and the friends to lovers trope, will fall for these characters and love this story. If you’re looking for some great banter, amazing characters, and sexiness you don’t see coming, READ THIS BOOK!
