Handsome twenty-eight-year-old Will Hallerman has finally had enough of the dating world –he's ready to find a wife and settle down. This announcement is catastrophic in Hannah Becker's world. After knowing Will her entire life and adoring him from afar since junior high school, she realizes her chance at love with him is in grave danger. Hannah's problem? To Will, she will never be more than his best friend's little sister. Determined to open his eyes to her charms, Hannah sets out to sabotage Will's wife hunt by placing nightmare dates in his path and taking his search on a wild goose chase. Her plan is risky, but she's willing to take a chance to catch the eye of her soul mate.
Despite her crazy schemes, nothing seems to be working. Hannah can't help but wonder if it's time to set aside this childhood crush – to move on and settle down herself. She's ready for a fresh start with a great guy. If only Will weren't suddenly changing the rules of the game . . . And how can Hannah move on when Will just won't let her forget?
I absolutely loved this book! I have a serious best friend thing, like I’ve told you about a billion times. This just nurtured it. It wasn’t that I fell in love with Will or anything, he was pretty great, but I’ve read fictional characters I like more. But the whole book had a tug feeling to it that just kept dragging me back. I never wanted to set it down.
My favorite scene was when Hannah had her migraine headache only to have Will find her on the floor in pain. I think that was the sweetest scene ever! I loved how he was so gentle and kind. I loved that he knew exactly how to take care of her in this situation; he cared about her enough to remember what to do to help her. He didn’t fumble or freak out, he was just there to help her in every way possible. Then he looked up ways to ease her pain, just so that she would heal faster. And let’s just face it, every girl loves to have their hair played with, so it was a serious win-win for Hannah there. And the fact that he wasn’t even worried about game 7 was a huge deal.
I just love that scene so much. I mean, I finished the book and went right to that chapter and reread that scene because I loved it so much. I am giving this book 5 quills because it was so wonderful. I don’t know how to put it into words, but I can’t handle how sweet this book was. Definitely going on my “reread until I die” shelf.
