Rhett by JS Cooper

I’m Rhett.

I’m cocky because I can be. I’ve got it all: the looks, the money, the endurance. I’m the guy that every girl wants to be with, yet none of them have ever been able to tie me down.

I don’t do love. I don’t do relationships. And I sure as hell will never do marriage.

I’m all about the fast life and everything that entails. There’s a different woman in my bed every week. My friends are jealous of me. My enemies envy me. Everyone wants my life. And everything in my life is absolutely perfect. 

Until the day she told me she was moving away. She’s my best friend. She was my first kiss in grade school. We share everything with each other. We never dated because I don’t love her. I don’t care that she’s moving. I don’t care that she’s moving for a guy. I don’t care because I don’t love her. I don’t do love. 

I’m Rhett and I don’t let anything get me down. Then one night changed everything and everything I thought I knew was called into question.

All of a sudden, being Rhett didn’t mean so much anymore.

Ahhh, my very first JSC and I'm glad it was this one. I had so much feels reading this book and I really felt like an idiot grinning all by myself while reading it--in a good way, of course.

Let's just say that bestfriends-to-lovers stories never get old and this is one of the best in my recent memory. Although it might not appeal to all readers how Rhett didn't man up right away with what and how he felt for Clementine, I totally understood his part. ***SPOILERS*** I loved how he really valued their friendship and did just about anything even to the point of (booo!) hooking up with other girls just to distract himself. I know that isn't the most ideal thing to do but the fact that he was apprehensive to bring his relationship with Clemmie to the next level just showed how much he really loved his bestfriend. Sex is the easiest way to lose a friend and it was very adult of both of them to really understand that. There was so much thought put into whether they should corss the line or not.

And Clemmie was a sly little fox. I love a girl who knows her own mind but just like Rhett, she still tried to protect their friendship despite how she felt. And that was when I knew that this was the kind of love that lasts...even after The End part. The way these two valued love and friendship, I'm pretty sure they were in good hands.

One of the best things in this book: that this was in Rhett's POV. I rarely come across a male POV this equally frustrating and enjoyable. It was that good to read. I just loved this! Is all.

Final verdict: 8/10. Good read.
