The Cheat Sheet by Sarah Adams

Themes: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

The synopsis

Hi, my name is Bree Camden, and I’m hopelessly in love with my best friend and star quarterback Nathan Donelson (so is half of America, judging by the tabloids and how much the guy dates). The first step is admitting, right? Except, I can never admit it to him because he clearly doesn’t see me that way, and the last thing I want is for things to get weird between us.

Nothing but good old-fashioned, no-touching-the-sexiest-man-alive, platonic friendship for us! Everything is exactly how I like it! Yes. Good. (I’m not crying, I’m just peeling an onion.)

Our friendship is going swimmingly until I accidentally spill my beans to a reporter over too much tequila, and now the world seems to think me and Nathan belong together. Oh, and did I mention we have to date publicly for three weeks until after the Super Bowl because we signed a contract with…oops, forgot I can’t tell anyone about that!

Bottom line is, now my best friend is smudging all the lines and acting very un-platonic, and I’m just trying to keep my body from bursting into flames every time he touches me.

How am I going to make it through three weeks of fake dating Nathan without anything changing between us? Especially when it almost-sort-a-kinda seems like he’s fighting for a completely different outcome?

Send help.
XO Bree

The review

When I checked the reviews on Goodreads after reading this one, I was quite surprised at how bad they were. Because I have to admit that I loved this book, that I found very good in its genre.

Even if it’s using all the romance tropes you could imagine, I liked the fact that for once the heroine isn’t the only one waiting for the male love interest to just look at her, but that he’s having the same feelings too! I enjoyed seeing their relationship evolve from a strong friendship to a strong love relationship. The characters were well fleshed out and I laughed a lot when Bree was losing it all and panicking because of her fear of leaving the friend zone while Nathan was just waiting for that 😂

Bree’s family and Nathan’s friends contributed to the good moment I had reading this book and made me laugh several times (especially the scene with the whiteboard).

In brief: I have to say this romance delivered everything I was expecting from it and I really had a good time with it!

My rating: 4.5/5
