Review: Not So Nice Guy, R. S. Grey

R.S. Grey's newest romantic comedy, NOT SO NICE GUY, is available TODAY! Get your hands on it now!


“Oh my god. Who is 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 work 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.

5 stars review

She did it again! The RomCom Queen is on fire with this one. Ian and Sam had so many laugh out loud worthy moments. I was laughing my a** off since the very first chapter. I honestly think Not So Nice Guy wins in that department... this just might me the R. S. Grey book that made me laugh the most (at least from what I remember). However it did not top the greatness of Arrogant Devil for me but it was pretty damn close let me tell you.

I adored this friends to lovers romance, it's a fact that they are my weakness and this one was beyond great. I didn't want to put it down for a second and honestly, I wish it hadn't ended. I could have read about these two and their shenanigans forever. Not So Nice Guy was super fun, cute and just unputdownable.

Ian and Sam are both teachers at the same school. They met on their very first day and since then have been best friends. At the time they were both in relationships and have been through a couple over the 3 years they have known each other but they also have been harboring feelings for one another... all the while thinking the other one is just not into them. What a load of bull!

Ian and Sam are both in love with each other and just too scared to put themselves out there and ruin the perfect friendship. But one day when Sam tells the mean girls group of teachers that Ian is single and they are not in fact dating, which the whole school thought they were up until now, she opens up a whole can of worms for both of them. All the women and girls at the school prance on Ian like they have been starving for years and the male teachers are suddenly all interested in her. 
When Valentine's week comes around and they both realize that there's a whole line of competition lined up to date their best friend, they are just not okay with that and they know they need to make their move now. But while Sam is still so very scared and just doesn't want to risk their friendship, Ian is all for it and finally makes a move, a very risquΓ© but hot move that Sam just can't resist.

Watching these two tiptoe around each other and seeing their flirty banter come to life, reading about their attraction to one another was glorious. I loved both of these characters so so much. They were both hilarious and just so fun. Sam was very insecure and awkward and embarrassed which provided the best laugh out loud moments in the book. Honestly, she was a very relatable character for me. There was a lot of me in her and I loved that. And Ian oh lord, first he was just so freaking funny but then you see how much of a stellar guy he is and how much he loves Sam and is willing to fight for the both of them and oh my goodness *sigh*. He was pretty perfect. And just so you know how much I truly loved the guy, he's one of my favorite R. S. Grey characters ever. 
I honestly could go on forever about these two but that's just not gonna happen today. 

There's a twist in their story that I was not expecting and it kind of came out of nowhere but let's be real, it was part of the awesomeness of the story and I wouldn't change a thing. Ian and Sam were amazing just the way they were and their chemistry had me on fire. I guess you could say this one was a bit of a slow burn but lord was it worth it, when they finally fell into 'bed' with each other it was scalding, it could have burned the whole damn building down. Ian had been hiding a very naughty side from Sam and just like her, I lived for it. That man kept surprising me at every turn and he just got better and better in my eyes.

Not So Nice Guy is the perfect romcom. It's refreshing and relatable and just super funny and I honestly had needed this moment of relaxation and good laughter without even knowing I did. So thank you Rachel for that and for never once disappointing me with your witty and priceless words.
