ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Samantha Abrams and Ian Fletcher are co-teachers and best friends for three years since they're hired at Oak Hill High School. Their friendship began during the teacher's orientation and they instantly cliqued. These two are quirky together and they read each other's minds. They're so cute often times people assumed they're couple. Over the years, Sam's feelings for Ian developed but she thought it's one-sided. Her actions are pretty obvious and Ian doesn't take a hint. One day she blurted out that "they aren't dating" and ladies starts fawning on her best friend.

Sam genuinely felt bad about the situation because he's supposed to be hers. Sam is an attractive, intelligent and classy woman but she's insecure and overdramatic. Ian is a charming yet shy guy. He's in love with Sam but he never confessed his love for her. She's attracted to him but he can also sense her fear of losing their friendship. Thru his persistence, will Sam finally give in and take a chance of them being an official couple?

I'm on the minority for this one because I didn't enjoy Not So Nice Guy. Romcoms are supposed to be fun and quirky. However, I felt the opposite in this book. The romance was flat and the protagonists annoyed me for sending mixed signals and waiting for someone make a move. Don't get me started with Sam being a drama queen. The plot escalated on the 50% mark and it barely kept me interested plus the last 25% dragged on. It may be a happy ending but it's rushed. Overall, this is a disappointment.
