Three out of five star rating. Mr. Right There All Along was a cute, fun, and lighthearted romantic tale between two friends who secretly admired one another for years. High School for Chloe was one long, brutally embarrassing journey she thought she'd put far, far behind her - and she had, until the blasted reunion announcement landed on her doorstep. After talking to her long time (strictly platonic) best friend Simon, she starts plotting out operation revamp, in which she plans to completely overhaul herself - mind, body and soul - and make the tormenting teasing tarts eat their words at the reunion... With Simon's help, she'll complete her transformation AND take a drool-worthy date to the reunion, a man who is on Simon's legal team... Ah, revenge will be sweet! Simon has had it bad for Chloe ever since he can remember. What she sees as flaws, he sees as endearing qualities. Too afraid to confess or act on his feelings for Chloe, he's immersed himself in his business and in dating nearly any woman that is the complete opposite of Chloe. When Chloe asks for his help in her personal crusade, he reluctantly helps, all the while trying to convince Chloe that she is perfect just the way she is. How far will Simon go to maintain his strictly friendship stance with Chloe, especially when she asks for his help luring in the hot young lawyer who every woman lusts after (and he knows it)? Ugh... Somedays, it "just friends" isn't enough. Overall impressions: Chloe was hysterical. Actually, I could completely relate to her neurotic thoughts and her outlandish attempts to become a "better" version of herself. Really, what woman CAN'T identify with that desire? Simon was grounded and the best friend Chloe could have. He was supportive, he was a mind reader, and to top it all off - he was an uber-cutie!!!! The story was light with funny exchanges and doubt-filled/hope-filled moments of attraction and action. There was quite a few missed opportunities or misunderstood intentions, which fueled & confused both Chloe and Simon's attraction and friendship. My largest complaint was with the ending. I will not spoil it for any future readers, however, I will just say that I felt the air leave my balloon a little faster than I would have liked... Great job, Ms. Braun!!!! Thank you for an utterly delightful read! :)
I liked it was cute romance. Chole is working part time at a job she likes and the boss keeps telling her the next full time job is hers. Chole in the mail gets her ten yr reunion notice. Three girls made her life miserable in high school just thinking about it drives her crazy. Sh she is eating comfort food and Simon calls and comes over. He got the invitation a week earlier. they have been best friends scince grade school. Simon was a nerd but not he owns a company thats doing great and he is in great shape. Though his girl just dumped him. Simon dad is getting married for the sixth time. So he doesn't see a lot of people sticking around in his life. So he doesnt want to let Chole know he is attracted to her and loves her because he doesn't want to loose her friendship. Chole decides she is going to wow at reunion. She starts dieting and goes running with Simon. She gets her teeth whitened so she wont drink red wine, coffee or tea. She tries to get a fake tan but it turns her orange. Simon keeps telling her she is perfect and it drive him nuts that she is changing for people she doesnt even see. He is glad that she is getting healthier with exersize and eating healthier. He doesn't think she needs to loose weight fix the gap in her teeth. Become any more perfect than what she is right now. Its fun to see the trouble Chole gets into trying to get ready for reunion and watching them try to hide how much they love each other. Its a fast read entertaining book. I was given this ebook in exchange for honest review.
