Bonus Book Review: Always Will
So, I started reading Always Will by Melanie Jacobson just before my kids got up for the day thinking I'd get a chapter in and, you know, start the day off right. The problem was, I was hooked from the very beginning! So hooked that I served my kids breakfast with one hand so I could hold my book in the other! I read in fits and starts all day and was finally able to finish it that night. It was the kind of story that I couldn't put down! So much fun and yet compelling at the same time.
Hannah Becker's world comes crashing down around her when the guy she's had a crush on since her teen years announces that he's going to find a wife and settle down. (The guy's twenty-eight, so you know, it's not a bad idea or anything.) But all he sees when he looks at Hannah is his best friend's little sister which frustrates Hannah to no end. She does everything she can to help him see her as a grown woman and not the girl he's supposed to keep an eye on for his best friend, but Will doesn't really seem to be getting with Hannah's program. But it does provide a lot of laughs for the reader.
It's not all fun and games, though, when hearts become involved and Hannah has to make some tough choices. Even if they don't end up together, Hannah doesn't want to lose Will's friendship, but that's exactly what might happen if they both can't figure out where their relationship is truly headed.
I loved the snappy dialogue, the fun characters who grow and change and who the reader really cares about, and I could not wait to see how it all turned out. This one definitely goes on my keeper shelf.

Here's the back copy:
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?
