Date Me Like You Mean It by R.S. Grey

Date Me Like You Mean It was funny and endearing. I especially liked that Aiden and Maddie were friends first and that we got to follow their journey exploring a new dynamic between them. My favorite character was Aiden with his romantic heart, even though Maddie was the funniest. The banter and engaging dialogues were top notch as usual and made me smile numerous times.

Like I say every time, but is worth repeating, I LOVE how R.S. Grey write and compose her stories. Even when a book is not my favorite by her, the story is still VERY good. You cannot stop reading and still get invested even when you do not really click with the main characters. As you probably can deduce by now, this was the case for me with this book and was because of how I perceived the characters at times. I still enjoyed it greatly (giving it 4 stars) and absolutely loved the humorous dialogues and drama.

I would gladly recommend this to anyone that wants to hear it, and that is exactly what I am doing now – Romantic comedy readers, this book is right up your alley!

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.
