Hit All the Mr. Right Buttons

She's been out of high school for ten years, but the moment Chloe McDaniels opened the invitation to her reunion, panic hits. Three girls had made those years the worst of her life, bullying her and ostracizing her. She never knew why they hated her so, but it left her scarred. If it hadn't been for Simon Ford, her best friend since third grade, she never would have made it through.

Relying on Simon for some much needed emotional support, she laid out

Rating 3.5
This was a really good friends to lovers story. Simon and Chloe have been there for each other for everything, from her terrible days in high-school to her break-ups, to his father's multiple divorces etc and for some reason Chloe has never liked the women he dated and so when he tells her he just broke off a relationship she is pleased, it is obvious to us that she is jealous but not to her.

When she gets a ten year reunion invitation she changes, becomes crazy about her apperance, los
This was a very nice friends to lovers story. I loved how the hero kept telling the heroine all along that she was perfect and didn't need to change a thing. She was preoccupied with getting all skinny and dolled up to go to their 10th year high school reunion. Well written and sweet it took place over 6 weeks and was a series of scenes showing her determination to change herself and his efforts to help her even though he thinks she's already perfect. This was a chaste story with only a couple o ...more
This is a typical friends to lovers story but it still intrigued me because of the high school reunion element. I always thing that makeovers paired with discovering a love that was right in front of our heroes all along make for an interesting and entertaining story, as was the case in Mr. Right There All Along.

Mr. Right There All Along is the story of Chloe McDaniels who along with her best friend Simon has always been the outsider in high school. She is incredibly insecure about herself and w

How I got this book: NetGalley

There isn’t much I love more than a great friends to lovers story. I don’t know what it is about it, but this trope always manages to suck me in and keep me reading to the very end. I just love it. While Mr. Right There All Along had a great premise, great potential – it was just average.

Chloe and Simon have been best friends forever. They’ve al

I enjoyed reading this book. The start was quite slow and initially i didn't feel any connection to the characters, which tends to happen when a story is told in the third person. However a fourh into the story, I started falling in love with them, particularly with Simon.

Chloe tends to be too hung up on her past which could turn a person off, but then again having faced bullying personally
Three out of five star rating.

Mr. Right There All Along was a cute, fun, and lighthearted romantic tale between two friends who secretly admired one another for years.

High School for Chloe was one long, brutally embarrassing journey she thought she'd put far, far behind her - and she had, until the blasted reunion announcement landed on her doorstep. After talking to her long time (strictly platonic) best friend Simon, she starts plotting out operation revamp, in which she plans to completely ov

My Thoughts:

Chloe McDaniels and Simon Ford has been friends since teeny school. She was the overweight geek and he was nerd and handy. They fight, get back together but things never evolved to more than friendship.

Now it’s time for the high school reunion and Chloe started to be nervous. She was never popular but worst of all, she is still a bit overweight and the mean girls will definily see that she’s still single and doesn’t have a high job.

But Simon is so good friend that he joins her into a

‘Mr. Right There All Along’ is not a bad book, but it doesn’t really sit well with me because I love heroine who are strong and confident about themselves. The heroine in this book is nothing about that and she let her insecurities that have been rooted since high school rules her life.

The storyline is also very slow, and I did not appreciate the fact that not much seduction have been done on the her
I love stories where longtime friends fall in love. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside that your best friend can be your soulmate. This was a cute, fun read - nothing special but entertaining nonetheless.

I was a little annoyed that Chloe wanted to change SO much about herself for her reunion. Sure, you want to show your high school tormentors how great you've become but she seriously took it too far when she worried about the gap in her tooth.

And I was a little frustrated that they went
Mr. Right there all along is a beautiful love story about a love that grows between two best friends. Simon has been in love with Chloe for years but doesn't want to jeopardize their friendship. Chloe doesn't see herself as she really is and leans on Simon for a lot.

I found that I could relate to Chloe's character. All of us have self image problems and have also experienced bullying of some sort by the "pretty girls" in high school, even if you were one of them. Watching her overcome her insec
No es EL libro, pero es dulce y lindo jajaja asi que tres estrellas porque me parece que construyó la historia de forma coherente y hasta el último segundo no sabía cómo iba a ser, así que fue interesante de leer.

WARNING: No leer cuando estás sensible.
Sencillamente maravilloso, como me encanto está historia, el humor, el crecimiento del amor propio y de ellos... me encantó.

This was a cute friends to lovers story!
cute, this was my very first formulaic romance, i like the back and forth POV technique, the predictability was comforting in its way, it was neatly done
Predictable and annoying as hell. Chloe was stupid and I only read it till the end to read about the reunion and it was all of 2 paragraphs.
Lenore Kosinski
Adorable.... Chloe was on the verge of being too crazy with the whole reunion thingie, but loved the relationship between Simon and Chloe....
I enjoyed this story and the author's writing. I wanted more detail and a longer format.

Fun romance between two school mates planning to attend their reunion.
Not really any surprises here, but decent fluffy read.
