Handsome twenty-eight-year-old Will Hallerman has finally had enough of the dating world—he's ready to find a wife and settle down. This announcement is catastrophic in Hannah Becker's world. After knowing Will her entire life and adoring him from afar since junior high school, she realizes her chance at love with him is in grave danger. Hannah's problem? To Will, she will never be more than his best friend's little sister. Determined to open his eyes to her charms, Hannah sets out to sabotage Will's wife hunt by placing nightmare dates in his path and taking his search on a wild goose chase. Her plan is risky, but she's willing to take a chance to catch the eye of her soul mate.
Despite her crazy schemes, nothing seems to be working. Hannah can't help but wonder if it's time to set aside this childhood crush—to move on and settle down herself. She's ready for a fresh start with a great guy. If only Will weren't suddenly changing the rules of the game... And how can Hannah move on when Will just won't let her forget?
Hannah has found true love. With her older brother's best friend. The only problem is, he just doesn't know it. Really. Could anything be more frustrating? I love the humor, fun, heartache, and self-evaluations that occurred in this darling romantic comedy!
I love a good story about a childhood crush and this one is great! I love the witty banter and easy relationship Will and Hannah share. I know all too well how hard it is to see someone you've known for so long as grown up and capable and Will definitely struggles with this. Will is a math whiz and thinks in terms of problems and solving and equations. Hannah is similar, yet she feels things and feels them deeply. Her thinking terms are much more complex and fascinating, if a bit manipulative.
When Will decides to find a wife and uses algorithms and online dating sites as a source, Hannah is determined to undermine his chances and tries to get him to see that she's the one for him. Let the games begin!
I don't know if it is possible to feel more frustrated by Will than I did at times. He's completely clueless and just meanders along the friendship path he's always known. Yet, he's utterly sweet and adorable. I couldn't believe how sweet he was in the headache scene. I was frustrated with Hannah as times, too. Sophie, her best friend, kept telling her to come clean and she just couldn't. So much could have been avoided! Ah, the emotion is fabulous.
Melanie Jacobson is an auto buy author for me. She always delivers such great stories with fantastic characters!
Content: mild romance (kissing). Nothing else of note. Clean!
