This was a fun, entertaining book. Was it a little unrealistic at times? Absolutely. But nevertheless, a good time.
Not So Nice Guy revolves around Sam & Ian. Two best friends who literally do everything today. Dinner? Check. Sharing food? Check. West Wing Wednesday? Check. Like the two are inseparable. They even teach at the same high school. However, unbeknownst to each other they both have massive crush on each other.
There were many times that I laughed or had a smile on my face while reading. This is book isn't heavy on the angst, instead it is like a fun Rom-com.
Although the best friend to lovers tropes has been done millions of times, Not So Nice Guy manages to stay somewhat unpredictable and fresh.
I did enjoy this book, but the pacing was a tad inconsistent. In the beginning, I didn't have a problem with the pacing. But around the 75% mark, everything went a little hyperspeed. I would have liked it it had slowed down, because almost everything felt a little rushed.
Sam & Ian had amazing chemistry. These two characters needed to be together. And although, the story does not chronicle they beginning of their friend, it is undeniable that have this great friendship. It was believable that they were that close.
In addition to a satisfying romance, both main characters were extremely likeable. There are so many books where the romance over shadows the individual characters, but this book is not one. Yes, the romance was exciting and great, but so were Sam & Ian as people.
Final Analysis Not So Nice Guy is a refreshing and fun rom-com with great characters and a great romance. It does feel a little rushed at the end, but nevertheless, a good read.
