Despite this, I loved the story overall, and I thought this was even better than the first book in the series! Because as they pretend to be a couple, they struggle to remember why dating for real was a bad idea to begin with. Painter is known for her witty banter and hilarious exchanges between characters, which were on full display here. it was clear from the get-go that hallie and jack were not comfortable with them dating other people, so WHY did they keep doing it ?

yes’ he swallowed and said, ‘i can't drive by a burger king without thinking of french fries in bed; i can't hear a british person speak without remembering your fucking awful accent; i can't see a diamond ad without picturing your stupid grinning face at the borsheim's counter; and i can't hear my phone buzz without wishing it would be some asinine text from you. Well in this second book in the series, it’s her brother Jack’s turn to find love, and once again, fate may have something to say!Painter’s cute adult debut (after the YA novel Better Than the Movies) features a couple whose chemistry via text message complicates their IRL relationship. if jack had just admitted to his feelings early on instead of teetering around the fact that he kinda, sorta thought he was in love with her– this entire book would have been over quicker and there wouldn’t have been such a dramatic ending. it honestly just seemed like olivia wanted to check in to make sure jack was not going down a path of life destruction. the only other two women, in fact, who exist in the first chapter at all and aren't our protagonist. I think the quick one night stand between characters killed my excitement because they already had passionate night and moved on!

After belly-crawling out of a hotel room (hello, rock bottom), she decides it’s time to become a full-on adult. I literally smiled so much while reading this book, it made me so giddy and it was the most perfect one night stand turned friends to lovers story. Wrong Number (thought it was weak and a bit creepy), but I thought I'd give Lynn Painter's adult novels another try. this entire relationship between jack and hallie would have happened so much quicker if they actually sat down and had a heart-to-heart about their feelings as adults-- teenager in middle school can do a better job at communicating their feelings than these fuckers.They have the perfect start to a best friend set up and you just cannot wait until the romance starts.

Hallie agrees and the two have an amazing night of flirty fun and even more once they get back to his hotel room. When Hallie tells Jack how they met ,the jealous girlfriend appears out of nowhere,steals the scene, accusing them having an affair. Hallie finds herself with a glass of wine tossed in her face while Jack and Vanessa make their exit. I don't think I'll ever recover from the following scene: Hallie's man du jour recommends the lamb and risotto (it's an immediate yes from me) which Hallie balks at because she's a picky eater who only enjoys burgers and chicken nuggies.Because as they pretend to be a couple, they struggle to remember why dating for real was a bad idea to begin with . Special thanks to NetGalley and Berkley Publishing for sharing this enjoyable digital reviewer copy with me in exchange my honest thoughts. I need to stop but I'll just say one last thing: the ending was so abrupt I literally thought I had a misprint. For Hallie, drunkenly hooking up with a stranger in the middle of her shift is rock bottom, but Jack turns out to be a kind and supportive confidant.
