A mind, he discovers, she's clearly lost. Because she thinks she's in love with Meg's fia

I read this because of my weakness for the falling-for-the-sister's-BFF trope.

This is a well-written book. Excellent characterizations that went deeper than what I would normally find in a category romance. Good humor that doesn't come across as forced. I liked the realistic depictions of family and family ties. However . . .

I can understand why this novel has a so-so rating here on GR. I feel (almost) guilty that I am not rating this higher but ultimately there was too much focus on the secon
Normally I really enjoy books by Abby Gaines but ugghh this one I seriously disliked and it was a pain reading it, I just wanted to kick all the characters. Trey, Sadie, Meg, Daniel everyone.

Honestly, Sadie just seemed pathetic to me, the way she made eyes at Daniel. Trey was unremarkable and Meg irresponsible. Sadie sees Daniel first and instead of telling Meg she likes him she lets them date and then thinks it will be over soon and I will pick up the pieces. What great friends these two are. T

2.5 stars ...
Because it was kind of a cute book ... But for me there was serious issues with the writing style sometimes, I felt the book had potentials and could've been better

I liked Sadie, I mean she's fun, she's sassy and other than her being hang up over Daniel she was a great character

I hated Meg, well more like her personality at first ... She seemed so selfish and like she really only cared about herself ... But at the end I just felt indifferent towards her.

And Daniel!!! He confused th

i went on to pick up this book reading the synopsis at the rear side, like everyone else does. the story line seemed to be really catchy. thought i would give it a try.

the story revolves around a girl called sadie who is exceptionally intelligent. she has been socially outcast because of her geek status ever since school. but she doesn't mind it except when she doesn't get a partner to dance with in the town. she finds her best friend in Meg. her school time buddy. Meg is bang opposite in natur

A mind, he discovers, she's clearly lost. Because she thinks she's in love with Meg's fiancé. And that's an obsession he's determined to put an end to - one way or the other......

My review....

I liked Sadie.

the book is actually good and kept me on my toes. i kept reading the next page to see what happens next. but the author dragged the matter too long, upto the end so dat i found it impossible to believe dat sadie had fallen for trey. she just relised it suddenly! makes no sense, as she's been pining for daniel all throughout the book!

It is true that you might find characters in this book somewhat irritating, but I think this is what real people are like, what they do, how they behave.
Nobody is perfect and jealousy is pretty common feeling. Not very noble, but real.
I don't mind the lack of a realism in books (particularly in romances) and honestly I don't look for a realism, but somehow in this book to find a bit of imperfection of the real world was curiously refreshing so I got over my initial irritation and ended up liking

This was a cute little read about Trey and his sister's best friend Sadie. Sadie is genius who never found someone who fit well with her until she meets Daniel. She thinks she's in love with him and can't wait to introduce him to her best friend. But of course Daniel falls in love with the best friend and only looks at Sadie as a friend. I thought Sadie came off a little pathetic and immature in her pursuit of Daniel. I thought was a great character, he added humor and fun to the story. I wish S ...more

Gaines writes very light Superromances that usually have some unconventional elements and almost always closed-door sex or none at all. I enjoy her stories as I read them, but they're usually not very notable.

This, though… Very many situations kind of ticked me off. And a certain conflict disappointingly had no closure. Too bad, so sad.

Very Good!

The story plot is very original. It kept me guessing. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves romance novels.
The cheesy title hides a surprisingly solid book. The heroine was sometimes hard to like, but Gaines shows us how she ticks and it becomes easy to empathize with her (ie the heroine). The hero's issues are similarly well-handled - and I wasn't expecting that conversation near the end that sort of turns around everything we're meant to feel sorry about for him. The plot with the best friend has more depth than I'd thought, and somehow by the end Gaines has me believing in that romance too. A vivi ...more

I'm usually a sucker for cute reads like this, but this one just didn't do it for me. I thought the pot had potential, but the storyline was just awful.

I didn't really like Sadie's or Trey's character, even though I really wanted to. Sadie was a nutcase, and Trey's a jerk - which was the premise of the book, but their characters weren't written successfully. And they lacked chemistry to me. I'm sure they had chemistry, but I felt the writing lacked in portraying that chemistry.

I really wanted to

The two stories in this book reminded me too much of Emily Giffin's "Something Borrowed" which I was not overly excited about.
The four characters (brother, sister, sister's best friend, best friend's crush) really annoyed me. For individuals who were supposed to be intelligent, responsible, educated, etc., as well as not being adults(ages ranged between 29 and 31/32), they really acted childish and immature.
I really wanted to like the book more, but the characters' personalities kind of ruined

I'm only halfway through, and I've never been much of a fan of the movie, My Best Friend's Wedding with Julia Roberts, but this book is laugh out loud funny. I love the twists that Abby Gaines put on the stories, twists that make her characters so much more sympathetic than those in the film.

UPDATE: I loved this book. The ending felt a little rushed, but overall, the story was a fun, fun read.

This was such a fun read. Sadie and Trey and the surrounding families were a hoot. Abby Gaines as usual gives us well rounded characters that are not too perfect. If I can read a book and remember the hero/heroine's name then I know it was a good book. I remember the secondary and side character's names from this book so it was a really enjoyable read. I also loved the cover of the book.

loved the characters from the very start. i like that this book talks about having flaws and that there’s no such thing as a perfect relationship. there should be give and take and love is not always enough. you also need commitment to make it work.

This was a fun book. I thought it was really different the way the author used different points of view for scenes too. Will definitely read another book by this author!

A cute and fun read. Not perfect but I enjoyed it. The writing was touching. I could relate to Sadie. The ending was a bit rushed.
