Always Will by Melanie Jacobson

Book Description

Handsome twenty-eight-year-old Will Hallerman has finally had enough of the dating world—he’s ready to find a wife and settle down. This announcement is catastrophic in Hannah Becker’s world. After knowing Will her entire life and adoring him from afar since junior high school, she realizes her chance at love with him is in grave danger. Hannah’s problem? To Will, she will never be more than his best friend’s little sister. Determined to open his eyes to her charms, Hannah sets out to sabotage Will’s wife hunt by placing nightmare dates in his path and taking his search on a wild goose chase. Her plan is risky, but she’s willing to take a chance to catch the eye of her soul mate. 
Despite her crazy schemes, nothing seems to be working. Hannah can’t help but wonder if it’s time to set aside this childhood crush—to move on and settle down herself. She’s ready for a fresh start with a great guy. If only Will weren’t suddenly changing the rules of the game . . . And how can Hannah move on when Will just won’t let her forget?

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

This book didn't read as a friends to lovers kind of book.  

Yes, Hannah and Will have known each other forever (Will is Hannah's older brother's best friend).  And Hannah has had a crush on Will since she was a teenager.  So when she hears Will is serious about settling down and marriage, she freaks out.  So she "helps" him finds dates.  Then she makes a "fake" online dating profile to show Will that she is actually his dream girl.  HELLO!! Just tell the guy.  Hannah had the maturity level of a high schooler.  And Will is just dense...      

The reason why this didn't read as a friends-to-lovers type story was because they never even kissed until about 85% of the book.  When Will finally acknowledges that he feels "something" for her, Hannah proceeds to tell him it's only because she is now a challenge and that he will just move on the next thing soon anyways.  I don't know... these two were a mess to me. 

I skimming through a lot of this book.    

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
