Our Review

‘And just like that, I feel my heart leap out of my chest and right into Julia’s hands. She holds it; she has it all to herself. But I don’t think she realizes that mine beats because of her—that she has the potential to crush it more than anyone else in my life—and I hope she doesn’t throw it back at me. Ever.’

Meghan Quinn certainly knows how to woo us with her male characters. We’ve fallen in love with many over the years, but we think the sexy, funny and oh so gorgeous Bram Scott might just be one of our favourites. The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister is a friends to lover’s rom com with a major swoon factor and some real proper laugh out loud moments.

‘If I were a cartoon, I would have red hearts constantly floating over my head, letting everyone know around me that I’m a damn fool who’s lost his heart to his best friend’s sister.’

Apart from the romance between Bram and Julia (Jules), there’s a bromance between Julia’s brother Rath and Bram, that’s a sweet as it is funny, and this, together with the banter between Bram and his PA Linus, consider your funny bone well and truly tickled! So yes, there’s much to love about this book and dare we say, we think the side characters and their interaction with Bram may just have edged out the romance factor as our favourite thing about this story. Oh, how we loved Bram when he went headfirst into woo mode to finally try and win over Julia, but the side-splitting moments between the buddies and the banter between Linus and Bram really did hit the spot.

Bram Scott has held a torch for his best friend Rath’s sister, Julia since their college days. The story is set in the present with sporadic flashbacks to their college years and the moments that left their mark on Bram’s heart. Bram’s decided it’s time to finally woo Jules, and he thinks he has the foolproof plan to do it. Or ha he? Bram wants to prove to Jules he’s no longer the beer guzzling good time guy of his college years, but a refined (yeah, sure Bram!) successful self-made millionaire who knows what he wants, and he wants Jules and he intends to do whatever it takes to win her over.

“….focus on keeping that door to your heart open, because I’m about to sweep you off your pretty little feet.”

We adored Bram – he had this naughty boy quality in a sexy as hell body, together with a killer smile and a personality that outshone his physical attributes, and when he set about romancing Jules, he set our hearts on fire. Talk about passion and romance! This guy had it in spades!

Whilst we did love so much about this book, there were moments we became frustrated with Julia and her pragmatic ways. Honestly, how much convincing did she need about Bram. A blind man could see he was the one for her, and for too long she let her head rule her heart, much to our annoyance and made the story drag a little.

‘He is an amazing and unique man, but I won’t ever allow him into my heart, not if I wish to keep it intact.’

In saying that, Meghan Quinn sure knows how to delight a reader with warmth and wit, and she sure delivered a funny, sexy, swoony and sweet read in The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister. This book is everything you could wish for in a rom-com. Now, please, please Meghan Quinn, please tell us Rath and Roark McCool will be getting a book because we’ll be all over those! We’re dying for more!


From USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a deliciously delightful romantic comedy centered in New York City about falling in love with your best friend’s sister.

How do you date your best friend’s sister? Easy.

Step one: Pretend you want her to set you up with someone else. That will bring the two of you closer.

Step two: Go on date with lots of random women, proceed to get stupid drunk and talk about your best friend’s sister, thus gaining the courage to finally make a move.

Step three: Randomly show up at her apartment and confess your love. Women love that, right?

It all seemed so simple. A fool-proof three step process that will guarantee the love of your life to fall madly in love with you.

At least–that’s what I thought was going to happen. But my attempts to win over Julia Westin backfired in more ways than I can count. The thing about Julia? She’s smart–really smart–and her wicked gaze cuts through all the charm I’ve tried slinging her way. She’s not interested in games, my gifts, or my stories. She might want me too; but she’s not giving in that easy…
