What’s the worst thing you could hear your best friend, who you’ve always secretly been in love with, say? That would be telling another girl he could envision her being his wife.
I just about died when Gannon Raferty, the boy who used to borrow my pencils in elementary school, said that to the lead of the reality dating show he was cast on. Though he didn’t win her heart, he’s now a bona fide sensation when he returns to our college and moves back into the off-campus house we share.
The torch I carry for him has always been one-sided; I’m head-over-heels, soulmate-level into him while he views me as a lovable kid sister. So I decide this school year will be the one where I move on, where I finally attempt to open my heart to another. After all, if he can make declarations of undying love to someone he just met, but not to me, that’s the biggest wake-up call I could ever receive.
Until one night early on in the semester, when we accidentally sleep together. Because of course he’s going to confess his feelings now, when I was ready to give up on there ever being an us.
But just as Gannon starts admitting exactly what I’ve always wanted to hear, I get devastating news. And suddenly, I don’t want to risk losing him as a best friend. I’ve already lost too many people I love, and am on the brink of adding one more to that list.
If our romance goes south, I don’t how I’ll ever come back from it. Not only the crushing heartbreak, but the fact that we can never go back to how we were again.

I definitely liked the unique storyline with the hero having been on a reality tv dating show. The main characters were roommates with one of the characters from the last book I read by this author, Then You Saw Me. So it was nice getting a little bit more time with those characters. I honestly liked Gannon sooner than I did the love interest in the last book. I also liked that the main character, Amelie, was in school studying to become a librarian. Although I did chuckle a bit at the naivete of thinking that a library job was going to be all organized and orderly and knowing what would happen when. Because that is not a library job at all. Unless you are maybe in the back cataloging or just shelving, as a librarian you never know for sure what you’ll be doing that day. Or maybe it’s different for public librarians as opposed to school librarians.
Both characters had backgrounds that made you understand some of their emotional issues and hang ups on what they wanted or would do. But there were several times in this when I felt they were being stubborn way more than was necessary for even a normal romance novel drama. At the end there was a moment when everything was going pretty good for their relationship, but she got a upset over something that totally wasn’t fair for her. Again though, it was easy to understand why she was easily upset by it. And I really liked that the author made sure her friends let her know she was being unreasonable and that she realized it easily with just the little talk they had with her.
It was a little bit long for me at times, and there might have been a few things I wish there was more of, but overall a pretty good story.
