Dear Assbutt Douchenozzle Anders,

You’re cordially invited to stop messing around with my emotions. You had your chance and like a coward, ran away when it got too difficult. Couldn’t you handle wanting your best friends, little sister? You didn’t want me bad enough?

Like I said—coward.

Well, guess what? You lost your chance and now I’m engaged to someone who isn’t you. Thank

This was the second book I've read by Alexandria Bishop.

The first one was "Kiss Me" which you need to read before these one so, you could understand how it all started between Griselle and Andres (you can get book for free).

"Marry Me" is a sweet and very funny story about two friends who secretly in love with each other, but they are afraid of say it aloud.

If you love tropes: brother's-best-friend, best-friend's-sister and friends-to-lovers, this book is perfect for you ❤.

This is my first book from this author and it was ok read for me. Anders didn’t want to admit his feelings for Giselle because she was younger than him and his best friend’s little sister. When they finally act on it, she goes to Paris the next day and comes back months later engaged and that is where the story fell a little flat for me. I am not a big fan of a love triangles. Anders and Giselle do get a HEA and from how it ends Wren may get a story. I may read that unless he gets involved into ...more

From the moment Giselle met Anders at 17 years old, she has been smitten with him. He is her older brother's best friend and as such has always been off limits. But her heart doesn't care and even though it's nearly 2 decades later, she still can't forget her feelings for him. Giselle finally decides it is time to take what she wants from Anders and then move on for good.

Anders fell for Giselle the summer he met her, but he was 19 and knew he couldn't get involved with his best friend's little

This was a great read with a storyline easy to follow. I think that the story could have been improved by adding scenes throughout explaining some of the past 18 years. It just seems that 18 years is a huge gap from the novella “kiss me “ where these characters were introduced to this book now. It doesn’t explain how they got where they are today except a minor part towards the end written about giselle. Nothing is written about how Anders got to be where he is today. Having said that I enjoyed ...more

Marry Me is sweet, cute and fun with a little angst thrown in to spice things up.

Teen Giselle fell in love with her brother’s best friend Anders in Kiss Me. In Marry Me they do everything to deny those feelings.

“Love makes you do crazy things, and apparently I’m about ready to do one of those things.”

There is a bit of a triangle and lots of ‘will they/won’t they’ back and forth while hoping for the HEA we started wishing for in Kiss Me!
-4 Stars!-

What in the world?!. I never did get the forbidden love because of brothers best friend crap, but tend to enjoy however this one was just too ridiculous for me to get over, who in the hell waits 18 years to man up? really I wouldn't have given him the time of day for him to decide to do something totally lost interest in that..will not continue to read just to annoying.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Disappointing. Started well but the whole direction of the book for me was lost after a while. The idea that a man would give up his happiness for 18 years for fear of losing his best friend over falling in love with his sister is absolutely ludicrous. Who would do that? I understood Giselle going off to Paris. It could have been a good story but it was poorly handled, exaggerated and the story became fragmented. Anders decides that he will fight for Giselle. just as she returns from her 9 month ...more

Giselle has been in love with Anders since she was 17, but at 35 he still refuses to pick her over his friendship with her brother so she does the only thing she can think of and leaves. Anders always thought Giselle would wait for him to get his life together and make his move, but he is faced with the cold reality of what happens when you wait to long to claim the woman you love. Nine months after leaving Oregon and her family Giselle comes back home with a surprise in tow her fiance Wren. So ...more

Good book! I will be watching for more books by this author!!

I really do love a good second chance at love romance. And what can be more second chance than an eighteen year unrequited love, finally deciding to move on and then have the very man you have been in love with all that time decide to finally make his move the night before you jet off for Paris. Of course he is still fighting his feelings and does not actually commit himself so you decide to make that trip and while you are in Paris me

To begin with I'm not sure how much I actually liked the character Anders. He's clearly got himself a huge ego and expects Giselle to fall at his feet whenever he wills it. I did warm up to him and I think that's mainly because of how he evolves and begins to realise how much of an idiot he truly is! Giselle, on the other hand, knows exactly what is happening - she's been pining for her brothers best friend for too long and needs to escape the cycle. Clever girl, but things are never that easy.

Wow. I loved this book from the first chapter. I would have finished this book in one day if I didn't start it late and the darn thing called sleep. LOL :D Anders and Giselle have known each other for the past almost two decades. They both had feelings for each other and had yet expressed them. One day Giselle decided that she needed to get away from everything and booked a ticket to Paris. She had gone into Anders' bar and told him that she was leaving. He took it as his last chance to change h ...more

Giselle has had a crush on her brother’s best friend Anders since she was a teen, but he’s never seemed interested in her. You know, it’s his best friends kid sister and there’s rules about that. Unspoken but well followed rules. It’s too bad that his brain doesn’t stop thinking about her. The night before she heads out on the trip of a lifetime, Giselle and Anders throw caution to the wind. When Anders wakes up the next morning, full of hope for a life with Giselle, he discovers that she’s gone ...more

A great follow on to the Dating in the Dark series that I loved so much. Giselle, Mareks's sister has been in love with Anders her brother's best friend since she was 17. Although Anders has always had feelings for Giselle he was afraid to follow up on them and lose Marek's friendship.

After too many years of dancing around what could be and waiting for Anders to come to his senses, Giselle rightfully decides that enough is enough and goes to see him one last time before she moves on with her ne

Anders is an idiot.
Instead of being a man, he’s had a jones for Giselle Outlaw for about twenty years. At 37, he finally caves and hops into bed with her when she tells him she’s leaving.

Giselle has had a jones for Anders for decades. But he’s never acted on it since their teen years cuz he’s bfs with her brother.

They hook up and she leaves for Paris.
She returns engaged to a movie star Wren Danzig who is a much better fit for her.

Here’s my thoughts. They lack communication. They magically thin

This book was really good. It was a feel good kind of book. Giselle Outlaw has had the hots for her brother's best friend, Anders McKay for a little over a decade. Of course during that time she was away at an out of state college in California and never once came home to visit. The thing was Anders had made it clear since she was a teenager that he didn't want to persue anything with her because he didn't want to lose her brother as a best friend. So, Giselle goes to the club he owns to say a q ...more

I was so excited to read this book, considering it's partially based on one of my current favorite songs. I also love second-chance stories.

Upon first meeting Giselle (in a previous AB book), she was a "love to hate" character. That changed for me. I think she had her guard up to keep her heart from breaking pining over a man she loved but couldn't have. I liked that she went out to try to find herself, and someone who openly showed her love. I felt for her and all the backlash she had received

Simple but very well written
I loved this romance which although simple is very moving, especially the first part in which Anders is desperate for what is happening. I loved this character. On the other hand, the character of Gisele annoyed me by her decisions during this first part.
One of the interesting things beyond romance is the role of the media in the relationships between celebrities, the lies that are being conveyed to them and the haters that are raging.

While I liked this Second Chance Romance between Giselle and Anders, her brother’s best friend, I couldn’t really get into their romance because of the awful way Giselle treated Wren.
I kind of hated that she brought him into her life, fell in love, promised him forever, and then broke his heart because she still loved Anders.
Wren was decent and sincere, willing to accept Giselle even when he started to realize the truth, he still loved her.
I liked Anders and his willingness to do
