One thing my girls and I did growing up was talk about the boys we liked, dated, kissed, hated, and then kicked to the curb. But imagining my girlfriend talking to me about kissing, getting intimate or even hating my brother would probably leave me feeling a little uneasy. Who wants to picture their sibling getting busy with anyone, let alone with your best friend? I can see how it would get tricky and, possibly, messy. What if they break up?
Are you caught in the middle? Make sure the guy in question actually likes you as much as you like him. Make sure you talk to your bestie first to see how they feel about the possibility of you two dating. Not that you need permission, but definitely consider their feelings and their point of view.
Like I would read her grocery list if she published it and I'm sure it would be just as funny as all her other books. What do you do when you're in love with your best friend's little sister but Starting the new year off with a new release by one of my favorite authors and damn it was a good one!
What do you do when you're in love with your best friend's little sister but you're afraid of losing your best friend and possible the love of your life by admitting your true feelings? Well, you lose a bet to said best friend so you can sign up for his little sister's dating program so you can then somehow charm your way into her life and make her see that you two were meant to be. Sounds easy, right? That's what Bram Scott thought, but a girl like Julia Westin is gonna require a lot more than just "charm" to win her over.
Can I just say that gosh this title is a mouthful to say and type. I've reverted to copy and pasting the title because ain't nobody got time for all that!
Okay jokes aside, the title itself is pretty self-explanatory and basically is a give away for the plot of the book. I was hooked right away and it's all because of Bram. I don't know how she does it, but Meghan is forever creating new heroes for me to fall in love with and now Bram's name can be added to that list. I love Bram's personality and his heart.
He's kind of this cocky guy who always thinks he's right but at the same time he's considerate and patient and kind. He has a big heart and a damn lot of patience because he waited ten years to finally make his move on the one girl who always owned that big heart of his. Julia on the other hand took a bit longer to warm up to, but that's because she has these wall put up and it took quite a few chapters until we get to see those walls break down. Once she was willing to let herself see that being with a guy like Bram could in fact be a reality, she started to let her true self shine and I loved seeing her open up!
The romance itself is angsty but so goddamn funny. Bram and Julia are complete opposites but they work so well together because he makes her feel comfortable and safe and she grounds him and keeps his ego in check.
The dialogue had me on the floor, especially one particular scene with Bram, Julia and Julia's older brother, Rath. These three together are just a riot.
Dating your best friends older brother
One thing I will note about the romance is that it is a slow-burning one, but considering Bram has waited ten years to make his move, I'm sure we can all make it through a few more chapters until the fireworks are set off.
I low key hope some of the secondary characters in this book end up getting their own stories because I need the tea on their love lives and I think they deserve happily-ever-afters too! Jan 11, Jenny - TotallybookedBlog rated it really liked it. And just like that, I feel my heart leap out of my chest and right into Julias hands.
Meghan Quinn certainly knows how to woo us with her male characters. Oh, how we loved Bram when he went headfirst into woo mode to finally try and win over Julia, but the side-splitting moments between the buddies and the banter between Linus and Bram really did hit the spot.
Or ha he? Talk about passion and romance! This guy had it in spades! Whilst we did love so much about this book, there were moments we became frustrated with Julia and her pragmatic ways.

Aug 20, That's the last time I'll date a best friend's brother!" - Sydney, 20, NY Tip: When you're in any new relationship, keep yourself aware of your friend's simplybeyondexpectations.com: Macey Hall. Dec 22, The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister is one long ass title. It's about a forbidden kind of romance, best friend dating your sister kind. In it, you will meet Bram and Julia. Their bantering was cute. but they were so freaking frustrating. Well, okay Julie was the frustrating character. Bram. was just Bram if I'm being completely honest/5.
Honestly, how much convincing did she need about Bram. A blind man could see he was the one for her, and for too long she let her head rule her heart, much to our annoyance and made the story drag a little. This book is everything you could wish for in a rom-com.

See a Problem?
Yet, I keep thinking to myself she cannot stay perfect but after this book, she might have elevated to that status. She took it to a whole new level with this story.
However, there was something new to this book. There was a vulnerability in it with both characters.
I think that is why I adored Bram the way that I did. He wasn't alpha sure he was confident but not in a smug waynor did he have a mouth so filthy that it would take a lifetime of soap to clean out. Instead, he was genuine and true. He was resolved in knowing that Julia, Jules to him, was the finish line.
She was everything. I adored seeing him unabashed in going to any lengths to show him that. Julia, sweet lord this girl.
Dating Your Best Friend's Brother: Is That Acceptable Or Too Close For Comfort?
I adored her and her quirky characteristics. Together they truly were the perfect match. I didn't need certain colors to match them up to know this. They just clicked. I loved how they interacted with each other and tried to trick the other in confessing things to catch the other in a lie. This book isn't on the steamy side and didn't have it until much later in the book so keep that in mind if you are looking for something with a lot of sex.
Sometimes the anticipation is much better than reading every other page of steam and that is true in this case. There were so many humorous moments in the story. I won't give spoilers but can I just say that I will always think of this author when I see or hear about a dragon?
I was rolling. In true fashion, this author has woven her magical unicorn spell over me and I am enchanted.
There is a reason she is my go-to RomCom author.

Who else winced while reading steps one through three? Cause I sure as shit did. Because even I knew that the pitfalls could be varied and many and bring about all kinds of issues, but even as I was wincing I was already needing to see how everything played out with Bram and Julia and I wasnt disappointed in anyway.
I loved Julia and Bram. Julia is that compelling mix of shy, thoughtful sassy and snarky with a good dose of an extremely observant wallflower most of the time.
And though it was all kinds of slow burn, the chemistry between them was intense, so when things finally stopped being slow, it was all kinds of smexy goodness and just showed that they were a perfect match in every way.

Thankfully, they both figure things out and loved where they ended up. From the way the story played out to the interesting situations that occur throughout the story to Julia and Bram themselves, this was a great story. But, the cherry on top of this sundae belongs to three of the supporting cast of characters. Roarke, Rath and Linus were kind of everything.

Bram was one of those heroes who jumps off the page and into your heart almost from the start. While there was no doubt the man was a bit misguided, his heart was in the right place and he was dedicated to winning the heart of his 4. I did like her and I got that she was pretty much an introvert, but and while highly intelligent she lacked a lot of common sense social skills. While they spent some time together with Rath being his best friend and her big brother, their interactions were limited and she always seemed to barely tolerate him which I believe was actually her trying to hide her attraction to him.
I loved how during the course on her interviewing him for her matchmaking skills, he made sure she understood everything he would put into a relationship and everything anyone who was involved with him could expect which amped up the attraction between them and added to the slow burn of their romance. Told from dual points of view, I feel that readers will gain great insight into both of these characters and their motivations for the way they live their lives and approach their relationships.
This book would not have been the same without the supporting characters and I feel confident that at some point we will see Rath, Roark, and hopefully Linus again in the future. Review copy provided for a voluntary review. Bram Scott was at times a bit obnoxious while others the perfect freaking gentleman. It was those moments where he opened his heart that had me swooning.
I didn't particularly like her 4. I didn't particularly like her not following her heart nor acting on her feelings for Bram.
She was closed off at times yet she was completely obvious. This book was steamy and at times had me pulling my hair, but I loved the moments of shared intimacy between Bram and Julia so much! Meghan Quinn once again proves she is the queen of romantic comedy! Jan 04, Pelusa Rivera rated it really liked it.
This was a cute book and I liked that they didn't just jump into a relationship but Bram worked for it. Bram has been in love with Julia for years but didn't really want to admit because he was in fear of rejection, of course he ends a man-ho I still do not get why they all tend to but whatever, he is best friends with Rath who is Julia's brother and they place a bet that one of them would have to go to Julia's company to find love only the others do not know that Bram threw the bet he wanted to This was a cute book and I liked that they didn't just jump into a relationship but Bram worked for it.

Their bantering was cute. Well, okay Julie was the frustrating character.
Their romance was meh. Nothing really stuck out to me but I ended up still finishing this book. I don't know what Bram saw in Julia. I don't understand why she was acting the way that she was in this book. Again, frustrating - super super frustrating.
Overall, it was cute and predictable. I'm glad that I'm done with it. Dec 15, Dana rated it it was amazing. Quinn is the Queen of Rom-Coms for me and she nailed it with this book! Bram and Julia are one of my number one book couples!!!! I think Im going to go back and read it again, because, yeah I have just added a new BBF to my harem Bram Scott has taken the coveted spot at the very top!!!
Meghan Quinn writes the books that I love to read. Plain and simple. This the fifth book that I have read by her and she hasn't steered me wrong yet.
If anything, it just gets better and better with every book I read. Evaluate how much your friend means to you - if you care about her too much to risk losing her, then steer clear of crushing on her bro! It seemed great at first, but things started to get messy. My friend wound up stuck in the middle of our problems and it made things super uncomfortable for her.
When it comes to friends' family members, it's just not worth risking the friendship - especially when there are plenty of other hot guys out there! Tip : Sure, dating a friends' family member can work out sometimes, but as Jamie advises, it can get messy.
More often than not, it's best to avoid the situation altogether. But when it turned into something real, we finally told his sister and she was super excited he was dating someone she knew was a good person! She even started making jokes about how we were going to be best friends and sisters!
