Title: Date Me Like You Mean It

Author: R.S. Grey

Genre: Rom-Com

About Dare Me Like You Mean It:

I’m good at hiding my feelings. Having to pretend I’m not in love with my best friend? Pfft. That’s child’s play. Here’s how I do it: I avert my eyes when he walks out of his room, shirtless in all his toned glory. I squash the butterflies that fill my stomach every time he slowly unfurls a dimpled smile. And, most importantly, I keep an arsenal of “personal massagers” in my bedside drawer. Wink. Not to brag, but Aiden Smith isn’t hard to resist if you’ve been doing it for as long as I have. In fact, we might have continued as best friends forever if not for the fact that I needed him to play the part of my fake boyfriend. Date me like you mean it, I told him. Nudge nudge. C’mon, just go along with a little lie, help a girl out, and then we can all return to life as we know it. Except he veered from the plan. He crossed the line. Flirting with me when no one else was around? Pinning me down and kissing me like that? Okay, how exactly is taking off my bra part of the ruse, Aiden?! I’d ask him about it if I could, but well…things got ugly and we’re not best friends anymore. In fact, we’re the exact opposite. Now, I have to play nice even though I want to crush his heart in the palm of my hand. Pretending not to love Aiden was the easy part. Pretending not to hate him? Well…I might need a little more practice.

Review by Lisa Kane

Maddie is a little eccentric. Her quirkiness makes her that much more unique and her sense of humor at the world around her (especially her family) keeps her grounded. While serving as the maid of honor at her sister's wedding, she meets Aiden, the groom's brother. He rushes in late to the rehearsal dinner, having flown in from an assignment he was covering as a journalist. Maddie is more than a little interested in him, but as her luck would have it, she brought her date with her. That doesn't stop a little flirting on her side at the wedding, but she thinks he is hooking up with someone he met that night. But before she leaves he finds out that she is thinking of moving to where he lives and he offers her a place to stay in case she needs it.

Jump ahead a little and Maddie takes Aiden up on his offer. Jump ahead even further and it's a couple of years later and they are great roommates. Maddie cooks, Aiden cleans up, Maddie takes care of things while Aiden flies all over for his job. Taking care of things seems to include mending all the broken hearts Aiden leaves behind. What is fun to him, is a relationship to his many admirers. Maddie has a tough time not feeling sorry for them. That is while she isn't jealous of them. Truth be told, Maddie has been hung up on Aiden since the day she met him. Only he seems to have friend zoned her. 

But a new boss at work and a twist of fate end up with a little white lie falling out of Maddie's mouth. Unbeknownst to Aiden, it seems Maddie has told her boss and her boss' friends that she and Aiden are dating and have been for a while. Guess she forgot to let Aiden know. She has to entice him quite a bit to go along with the sham, and spend time with her for a bachelorette weekend. The deeper they get into the pretend boyfriend thing, the more pent up feelings begin to surface. But it will not be smooth sailing for these two. 

Date Me Like You Mean It has a secondary characters that are as likable as they are eclectic. They have background stories that I wanted to read about and they rounded out the plot. Most of the chapters are told from Maddie's point of view but Aiden's are strong and emotion packed. 

With just the right amount of sass and humor and heartbreak Date Me Like You Mean It is another book that RS Grey knocks out of the ball park!
