[Review] Date Me Like You Mean It by R.S. Grey


Title: Date Me Like You Mean It

I’m good at hiding my feelings.
Having to pretend I’m not in love with my best friend?
Pfft. That’s child’s play.

Here’s how I do it: I avert my eyes when he walks out of his room, shirtless in all his toned glory. I squash the butterflies that fill my stomach every time he slowly unfurls a dimpled smile. And, most importantly, I keep an arsenal of “personal massagers” in my bedside drawer. Wink.

Not to brag, but Aiden Smith isn’t hard to resist if you’ve been doing it for as long as I have. In fact, we might have continued as best friends forever if not for the fact that I needed him to play the part of my fake boyfriend.

Date me like you mean it, I told him. Nudge nudge. C’mon, just go along with a little lie, help a girl out, and then we can all return to life as we know it.

Except he veered from the plan.

He crossed the line.

Flirting with me when no one else was around? Pinning me down and kissing me like that? Okay, how exactly is taking off my bra part of the ruse, Aiden?!
I’d ask him about it if I could, but well…things got ugly and we’re not best friends anymore.

In fact, we’re the exact opposite.

Now, I have to play nice even though I want to crush his heart in the palm of my hand.

Pretending not to love Aiden was the easy part.
Pretending not to hate him?
Well…I might need a little more practice.

R.S. Grey really knows how to write that classic feel good romance! I love kicking back with one of her books because they’re always so fun and easy to fall into. Looking for that perfect best friends to lovers romance with a heavy dose of unrequited love? Did I mention there is a little fake dating thrown in there as well? Oh, and the whole roommates thing. Maddie and Aiden are the absolute cutest even though they keep dating everyone but each other. This romance is perfect for you if you love:

-best friends to enemies to lovers/fake dating/roommates
-two people afraid to act on their feelings
-apology chocolates and sexy kitchen encounters
-emotional avoidance to the highest degree
-FLIRTING galore
-feel good romances
-long distance relationships
-angry snowball fights
-slow burns
