D.Kelly made me fall head over heels in love with love! This book had me captivated from the very first page to the very last and seduced by the characters that I couldn't put it down if I tried (I didn't even try)! This book was sweet, sexy, romantic and emotional. Tristan and Bexley have been friends since high school but realizing that maybe, just maybe there was something more between them. This book had me laughing, crying and swooning for the friendship, bond, and relationship these two ch ...more

Heart-warming and oh so sexy…

I love this author's stories. I don't have to read a blurb, or see a cover. I know I will want to devour it. This time I paused though as read. I can’t lie. I did find myself being a little judge-y. Bex had a rhythm to her dates and they all followed the same short-lived pattern. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Nothing. But I didn’t understand why it was that way. When she and Tristan started to date, however, all became clear…

I flat out LOVED these two t

Such a fun friends to lovers romance! Some seriously sexy scenes and super romantic moments from a SWOON-WORTHY hero! There's a bit of angst towards the end and overall a really great read.

Review by Jen Skewes

D. Kelly has done it again. There is not one book of hers that I have read and not loved. Her books just get me every time. And Dating Roulette was no different. A friends to lovers romance that will melt your heart!!

Tristan and Bexley have been best friends since high school. We see the moment when they became best friends and then the story takes place more than 10 years later as the two of them are working full time and sharing an apartment. They have both dated o

This story is one of most romantic I have read in a long time! Tristan and Bexley from first meet were instant friends and became inseparable! What Bexley didn’t see was that Tristan was more than her best friend but he was someone waiting for his chance to show her just how amazing love with him could be! He knows all of her idiosyncrasies but can he be the one to finally win her heart or lose everything including their friendship!

I absolutely loved how much Tristan loved Bex! He knew what he

I loved this book! I thought the concept was simple and straightforward - guys have to make it to the 7th date before Bexley would make it official. Her best friend, Tristan has waited on the sidelines for a decade and decided that now would be the right time (after making Bex promise to go on all 7 dates with her next contestant) to finally pursue his best friend. What makes this story stand out is the emotion the author was able to conjure between Bexley and Tristan. Another thing I loved abou ...more

This was my first read of D. Kelly’s and it definitely won’t be my last! Dating Roulette was a brilliant read, and the characters, the writing, everything about this book had me hooked from the very first chapter!

"Win or lose. This game ends with you."

Bexley and Tristan have been best friends for roughly ten years. She friend-zoned him immediately as he was friends with her ex, Adam, which meant they could "never" date. They have been living together for the past five years. They have each dated off and on and had one night stands. Bexley has a minimum date policy in place before she lets herself get involved at a certain level. Tristan has jokingly referred to it as her dating roulette. Tristan fina

“How about I make you a promise? Don’t break my heart, and I will never break yours.”

Bexley just broke up with her teenage boyfriend. And after exchanging a few words with his friend, who has watched the scene unfold, she declares that he will be her new friend, practically coercing the boy into contradicting her. And so, the two become best friends, always together in all situations.
Years later, as adults, the two are still inseparable and share the same roof. And if adult life has changed a gr

Dating Roulette is a stand-alone contemporary romance by D. Kelly. She has written a fun perspective of the whole best friends to lovers scenario. Don’t roll your eyes….I know that the “best friends to lovers” thing has been done many times before but D. Kelly’s storyline is different from others so don’t judge before you read this. It is HOT outside so, grab a cool beverage and let’s chat about D. Kelly’s Dating Roulette.

I do so enjoy me a sweet easy read and dating roulette is exactly that. A no stress very little angst sweet read that gives you all the good feels.

Tristan and Bexley have been best friends for 10 years and it all started with her breaking up with his best friend. Funny how that one moment changes the course of both of their lives.

Tristan is sweet with a side of sinful that he's kept on lockdown with Bexley since the beginning of time. He's the trusty best friend that gives you the truth even w

I was utterly powerless against the draw of this gorgeous cover, and that tantalizing blurb!

And then, I was sucked right in. It was no challenge to fall into the easy writing and simple storyline going on here. It was actually much sweeter than I anticipated – almost too sweet. Part of me absolutely loved the simplicity of Bexley and Tristan’s relationship. I loved how their friendship grounded them and made their communication so open and honest. I loved the heat between them – how it sizzled a

Brilliantly written

D Kelly has a gift. Her books bring you in and you do not want to put the books down till you know how it ends. She writes in a way that isn't predictable in the best possible way. She has a true gift. This book will make believe in all good things yet you can cry and laugh at loud. She also incorporates some elements from her other books but in a way that relates too the book she is reading. You're curious enough to read the books but you don't get lost if you haven't making

Ahh man this book! It literally gave me all the feels, and I couldn't turn the page fast enough!! It was possibly the most romantic book I have read in a long time! Tristan and Bexley are both such likable characters and their chemistry was great! I loved the whole concept of this book, it was fresh and not quite like others! This will definitely be in my favorites pile...

I loved the different take on dating that the author used for Bexley. Bexley has such funny ideas on what makes a guy unacceptable that I had to laugh at times. I loved Tristan and his patience. I don’t think I could have been as patient as him. I think they both subconsciously knew they each had feelings for the other, but was afraid to admit it. Their friendship was just so comfortable. There are a few heartbreaking scenes that brought tears to my eyes. But, for me the sign of a good book is h ...more

I absolutely LOVED this book. Having never read anything by D. Kelly I wasn’t sure what to expect but was blown away. This is such a great love story. I absolutely fell in love with Tristan and Bexley from the get go and continued to fall head over heals over them. This book took me on an emotional roller coaster and I found myself falling for Tristan. Such a hard book to put down. I highly recommend this book, read it, trust me you won’t regret it.

I can't even with this book. Talk about swooning from start to finish. These two made me smile so much my face was starting to hurt.

This story was absolutely amazing. From beginning to end you could feel how much they love and care for each other. Every date they had was better than the last. This story pulled me in and didn'tn let go right to the end. It was funny, emotional, hot and steamy but above all it was full of two people who would give up everything to be together.

Bex and Tristan are best friends and have been for 10 years. These two are both hot messes who have feelings for the other but are hiding them. I will say that I thought Tristan was a genius when he decided he wanted 7 dates with Bex! It was the perfect way to get her attention and he really did quickly. There dates were fun, quirky and perfect for them. This is definitely a slow burn and almost felt dragged on a few times but did pick back up. These two are adorable together.

I have yet to find a D. Kelly book that wasnt a true treasure and this is no exception. This friends to lovers story is not your run of the mill story but has amazing characters, well thought out plot and beautiful HEA to wrap it all together. If you've read anything by D before you will be pleasantly surprised to see some cameos from other friends from previous books. Do yourself a favor and take a spin on this book!

Romantic and sweet, Dating Roulette takes us into a friends to lovers story where the love of your life is right in front of you!

What Bexley and Tristan have is not easy to find. Soul mates since the beginning, they developed a friendship that grew into love without their knowledge. When they finally start feeling a lust induced love for each other and act on it, they soon realize that love was always there in front of them.

This is my first book by D. Kelly and it definitely won’t be my last! I loved these characters from the first page to the last!

Tristian is swoon worthy! I loved him as a book boyfriend. I absolutely adored Bexley. Tristan & Bexley has great banter & chemistry. And above all the friendship that these two had was everything!

I look forward to more by D. Kelly!

Tristan and Bexley will touch your heart in the most immense way. The beautiful friendship they have and the connection they feel will tug at your emotions bigtime! It certainly did for me!
This book is profoundly wonderful. I felt so much thoroughout reading it and I came out of it feeling like I didn't know what to do next.
I felt immersed into the storyline, so much so that the characters felt like real friends.

D. Kelly is one of my favorite authors and this story did not disappoint. Dating Roulette is a best friends to lovers story. Bexley and Tristan have been best friends and roommates for a long time, before Tristan decides to push Bexley a little in the hopes that they can become more.

Every time I read one of D. Kelly's books I'm sucked in from the very beginning until the very end!
Tristan and Bexley have been friends for 10 years, she calls her dating the Dating Roulette, the guy has to make to seven dates before he becomes her forever!
Tristan has been in love with Bexley for that 10 years but the bro code and all has kept them apart!
Will Tristan and Bexley come to realize they are each other's forever or will one misunderstanding keep them apart?

In high school Bexley saved Tristian. For ten years they have been best friends. Bexley always finds something wrong with anyone she dates. Bexley & Tristian are insanely cute together. Bexley thinks of Tristian as the perfect man. Maybe a little Dating Roulette will show them they are perfect together. Great Read. ...more

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

OMG I loved everything about this story. I love Bexley and her lack of commitment. It was pretty funny to see her quirks and things that make her turn off of a guy. I loved Tristan and his need to protect Bexley. I love the love these two had for each other. I love how they had to put their trust in each other and decide if they could be more. I fell in love with this story. I fell in love with these characters. I loved every second of this story

Discussed Book review: The concept of this story is very interesting, which helped give this story one rating. The second star goes to the scorching romance between the two characters, like oooh-la-la romance shit, me heart just fainted at those. But the reason for less stars is because there are no problems shown between the characters or to the characters, everything is way too peaceful between them, now in any good novel, there are always some problems which show the characters overcoming the ...more
