Always Will by Melanie Jacobson


I am so far behind on my ARC list and TBR list, like hundreds of books behind. I gave myself a goal this year to try to get through some of my pile by reading one old ARC per every new book. I didn't do so great in the beginning of the pandemic, come on we were all just reading all the popular books at that time, but now I can say I am making great progress. A lot aren't my style anymore, some just weren't all that good, but I thought I'd put the four and five star reads up on here for you! A lot of these can be found as Kindle deals, so check them out if they sound good.

Always Will
by Melanie Jacobson
Published October 5th 2015 by Covenant Communications Inc

Handsome twenty-eight-year-old Will Hallerman has finally had enough of the dating world—he's ready to find a wife and settle down. This announcement is catastrophic in Hannah Becker's world. After knowing Will her entire life and adoring him from afar since junior high school, she realizes her chance at love with him is in grave danger. Hannah's problem? To Will, she will never be more than his best friend's little sister. Determined to open his eyes to her charms, Hannah sets out to sabotage Will's wife hunt by placing nightmare dates in his path and taking his search on a wild goose chase. Her plan is risky, but she's willing to take a chance to catch the eye of her soul mate.

Despite her crazy schemes, nothing seems to be working. Hannah can't help but wonder if it's time to set aside this childhood crush—to move on and settle down herself. She's ready for a fresh start with a great guy. If only Will weren't suddenly changing the rules of the game... And how can Hannah move on when Will just won't let her forget? 

5 Stars

Always Will was such a fun, smart romance to read. What do you do when all the girls you've dated just aren't marriage material? You con the system into finding you the right girl. Never mind the fact that the perfect girl for you is right beside you, it can't be her since she's your best friend's sister. Hannah is going to prove Will wrong though, it is her, and she'll do whatever it takes to prove it. From manipulation to some laugh out loud funny date run-ins, Will Hallerman and Hannah are going to figure out, together, what finding the one really takes in Melanie Jacobson's contemporary romance.

I loved Hannah, even if she was super pigheaded at times. She wanted Will to see her as an option so badly, but she played into all the bad dating tips. She wasn't herself, she manipulated, she dated around. Sure, she learned a lot along the way, which made her super relatable, but she certainly broke all the rules in doing so. Her friendship with Will felt so authentic, I could picture them as friends and as the battle to prove him wrong turned up the chemistry was palpable. I cringed alongside them, felt the jealousy when they did, and absolutely lit up as their potential romance finally stepped into play. Hannah's ploy may not have been her best plan, but it made for a great read and a totally perfect brother's best friend romance read.

Always Will was such a great read for me, it was just the right amount of lighthearted romance and truly believable. I found this book so enjoyable that even if it had flaws for me, I already forgot them, because I just had such a good time reading it. I highly recommend this book, especially for my clean romance friends.
