Goodreads: A playful and emotional romantic comedy from the author of Ten Rules for Faking It

Hailey Sharp has a one-track mind. Get By the Cup salad shop off the ground. Do literally everything possible to make it a success. Repeat. With a head full of entrepreneurial ideas and a bad ex in her rearview, her one and only focus is living life the way she wants to. No distractions.

Wes Jansen never did understand the fuss about relationships. With a string of lackluster first dates and the pain from his parents’ angry divorce following him around, he’d much rather find someone who he likes, but won’t love. Companionship, not passion, is the name of the game.

When Hailey and Wes find each other in a disastrous meet cute that wasn’t even intended for them, they embarrassingly go their separate ways. But when Wes finds Hailey to apologize for his behavior, they strike a friendship. Because that’s all this can be. Hailey doesn’t want any distractions. Wes doesn’t want to fall in love.

What could possibly go wrong?

Ope’s Opinion: I did not read the other books in this series. I might go back now and read them because I enjoyed this one so much, but it was not necessary to read the others to enjoy this one. The brothers are great friends, which made this story more fun to read.

I throughly enjoyed the pace of the relationship – it was slow – which was great because they did not know each other before the story started. I am not an insta-love fan, so this one suited me perfectly. They became friends and got to really know each other and like each other before the relationship got deeper.

As in most romances, there were a few twists and turns that come between the main characters before it all ends well. This one had a great journey before the end was how you expect it to be.
