I’m assuming you’re still hungover, so I’ll make this brief.
Last night, you slipped under my sheets (without my permission), and we almost had sex. I got the hell out of the bed once I realized it was you, and I took you home.
That’s the story.
Just in case you’ve forgotten, you’re my best friend’s little sister. We will never be anything more. (We can’t be anything more.) Our previous friendship is still unresolved–or “over” in your terms, so I’d prefer if we worked on becoming ‘just friends’ again since you’re in town.
Nonetheless, I’m not a man who leaves questions unanswered–even the drunken ones, so to properly close our inappropriate conversation:
1) Yes, I liked the way your lips felt against mine when you were on top of me.
2) Yes, I do “prefer” rough sex, but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t rough with you.
3) No, I had no idea you were still a virgin…

I don’t have much to say about this book. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it either. At first I wanted to blame it on the reading slump I’ve been on since I finished reading my favorite book of the year but I just know in my heart that slump or not, this was not the book for me.
Over Us, Over You is the classic girl is in love with brother’s best friend story. They are not my favorite romance stories but I really enjoy reading them. I probably would have liked this story a bit more if it had different characters. The characters just ruined everything for me.
I found Hayley to be extremely immature and ungrateful. After her business went bankrupt (the business she created with her college tuition after dropping off college), her brother (a billionaire and the one who paid her tuition) forgave her for leaving college and for all the lies she told him and got her a job and bought her a house. But all she did was sneak around behind his back and take days off to go on dates his best friend. She didn’t have the best childhood so one would think she would be thankful for the life she has now but that wasn’t the case. I would have loved to see her work hard to get back on her feet and to thank her brother for everything he gave to her but I guess the point of this story was literally only the romance and nothing more.
I wasn’t a big fan of Corey, the best friend, either. I liked him a bit more that Hayley though. He’s confident, a player and cocky to the core—which I hate. And… for some reason I don’t have anything else to say about him.
I think some of y’all might enjoy this book. It has cute scenes and the tension between the characters made me keep reading so it’s not all bad. I has some The Boy Who Sneaks in My Bedroom Window—I didn’t love that one either—vibes.
If you like stories about girls who are in love with their brother’s best friend then definitely give this book a try. Maybe you’ll love it!
