Review ~ The Rules of Dating My Best Friend's Sister by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

The Rules of Dating My Best Friend's Sister (The Law of Opposites Attract #2)The Rules of Dating My Best Friend's Sister by Vi Keeland
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Lala and Holden had a long connection and had never acted on their feelings, however there was a line as Lala was engaged. This line was getting blurred at times, and I would’ve thought they had better control. Holden was worried that he was the one being used but I would’ve thought with the change in circumstances, these two should’ve taken time before diving in. That way neither would be second guessing the other.

Usually I love any read by this duo, but this read felt a little flat for me. It was hard to get into the story as parts of the story were glossed over instead of getting to experience what happened. In the end, I skimmed through alot of the second half of the book. I didn’t connect with the characters despite how much I love this world. I enjoyed seeing all the characters and hope I enjoy the next book.

Title: The Rules of Dating My Best Friend's Sister
Author: Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward
Series: The Law of Opposites Attract #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: April 2, 2023

From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes a new standalone romance.

Rule number one for dating your best friend’s sister: Don’t.
Just don’t do it.
Especially when your best friend is dead and the last thing he made you promise him was that you’d keep an eye on his little sister, but not too good of an eye.
As a musician whose longest committed relationship was six weeks, I, Holden Catalano, was the last guy on Earth who should’ve been messing around with Laney Ellison.
The super smart girl whom I affectionately dubbed Lala since childhood was always off limits.
Though that didn’t stop me from thinking about her over the years, especially those times when the two of us would sneak out onto the roof and talk for hours after my buddy fell asleep. It was innocent, but I’d always held a torch for her.
After Ryan passed away, I vowed to always protect Lala. That included protecting her—from me.
Now all grown up and a scientist, Lala needed a place to stay when she accepted a temporary research position in New York. I thought I did the right thing by offering her an apartment in the building I co-owned with my three friends.
Except having her close by reignited all of those old feelings.
And things started to get complicated.
Especially since she was engaged.
And especially since, lately, I’d noticed something more in her eyes. Desire.
Lala didn’t exactly look at me like the platonic brother figure I was trying so desperately to be, even though I wanted her more than I’d ever wanted anything.
Yet, I was being good—on my very best behavior.
But you know what they say…all good things must come to an end, right?
