“Oh my god. Who 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 works 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.
After Arrogant Devil, which I loved and gave 5 stars, I was very excited to get my hands on R.S. Grey’s new book. While it wasn’t a 5 star read, it was a solid 4 star for sure.
Sam and Ian have been best friends for 3 years. They teach at the same school. Oh, and they are secretly in love with one another. I don’t know about you, but I’m a firm believer that men and women can’t be friends unless they are in committed relationships. But that’s just me.
This book took a few turns I was not expecting, but I really enjoyed it. Ian. Just Ian is so amazing. I loved him so very much. He was so sweet and considerate to Sam. He loved his mom and dad. He coached soccer. I mean really, what’s not to like!
Sam is a great character as well. She’s a little spitfire. She was a little insecure, and felt she wasn’t good enough for Ian, but she as really great and sweet. I didn’t love her parents – there were pretty awful – well, her mom was.
It seemed that the other teachers, the females, were pretty accurately written. I felt like this was an accurate representation of teachers in a high school.
This book also had a great epilogue. So that made me happy:)
Overall, this was a cute read and I would recommend.
