Always Will by Melanie Jacobson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received from publisher to review
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Description: 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?
My thoughts: Growing up is hard. Growing up with a crush on your brother's best friend is harder. This is the dilemma that Hannah finds herself in. How does she keep a healthy relationship with Will when she has loved him for several years? How does she get him to see the woman she is now, instead of a surrogate little sister?
Her life is thrown a curve ball when Will announces that he wants to join an on-line dating site to find a wife. She hangs out with him practically every day and knows that she is his perfect woman. She needs to find a way to manipulate the dates so that he will appreciate her and know she is his match.
The way both will and Hannah up stakes for the romance games they are playing are entertaining. As a reader peeking into their story it is easy to see what they can't. There were times I just shook my head and laughed.
This book is well written and has a great voice. The middle section was a little slow for me. I was just ready for them to see what they had in each other and stop being idiots. The ending was definitely worth the middle. I then appreciated all that the ruts in the middle to get them to working everything out.
This book is fun to read and it is clean with some kissing.
