“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.


If I’m in the mood for fun, sweet, hilarious, steamy romances I always reach for an R.S. Grey book.  Not So Nice Guy definitely fit the bill.  And I am a sucker for the best friends to lovers romance trope, so needless to say I was so excited for this book.  Each time I read a Grey book I swear it’s my new favorite of hers, but then she puts out another one.  (Although, I will say I still absolutely love Arrogant Devil.)

Samantha (Sam) Abrams and Ian Fletcher are both high school teachers, and met at an orientation three years ago.  For three years they’ve each pined for the other, never wanting to jeopardize their friendship when they’ve both been single at the same time.  Of course, in classic Grey style, these characters have had their fair share of hilarious, adorable, embarrassing almosts with each other, but the line has never been crossed.

Sam and Ian are two peas in a pod.  They’re like a non evil version of Anna and Hans…we finish each others…SANDWICHES.  From their ridiculous pranks, and rapid banter, it’s easy to see why they’re meant to be…. even if they don’t.

I found myself laughing out loud at scenes in Not So Nice Guy, as well as cringing too, because Sam and Ian were hilariously relatable.


Another thing that I found that I loved was that it wasn’t Ian who had fears committing, once he realized and decided, he was all in.  It was Sam who had her reservations.  With good reason.  It was refreshing to see the hero being all in from the get go.


Overall, R.S. Grey delivered with NSNG and continues to knock it out of the park with romantic comedies.  I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet, steamy romance with a comedic flair.
