The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister by Meghan Quinn Review



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 you 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…


It’s no secret that I’m a huge Meghan Quinn fan, nor is it a secret that one of my favorite tropes is the big brother’s best friend scenario. Couple this storyline with one of my favorite authors, and I couldn’t wait to start this story. Oh how I loved this book! Quinn’s sense of humor is legendary, but in 2018, she unleashed her emotional, angsty author side, and I couldn’t get enough of those stories. The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister was an excellent choice for Quinn to demonstrate her ability to blend these two writing styles, and she took full advantage of this opportunity.

Packed with all the feels, this charming, heart-tugging love story featured an incredibly patient hero who knew exactly what, or more precisely, who, he wanted, and the quirky, nerdy sister of his best friend who he’d been crushing on for over a decade. The lengths that Bram went to in order to win Julia’s heart were impressive and positively swoon-worthy. This couple had such fantastic chemistry, their witty back-and-forth bantering was entertaining and amusing, and their whole opposites attract vibe just worked for me in a big way. But what I loved the most about this couple was the way that Bram just knew Julia and how her mind worked and gave her what she needed.

On the heels of a year full of amazing books, Meghan Quinn charges into 2019 with a sweet and sexy story that I absolutely adored. She never fails to bring the heart, the heat and the humor to her stories, and The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister is a wonderful example of this. I devoured this book in a day, and I did not want to put it down. Five smooches from me for The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister by Meghan Quinn!
