Book: Rhett
Series: Rhett #1
Author: J.S. 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.-Goodreads

Review: An arrogant, womanizing guy falls in love with his sweet, sheltered, virginal "best friend."  There is nothing new or exciting here. This was poorly written with unlikable characters, eye rolling dialogue and a predictable plot. Rhett, the narrative is constantly talking about how good looking he is but it isn't funny or endearing. Clementine, his best friend from childhood and love interest, is supposed to be a 21 virgin who is saving herself for marriage. However, after hooking up with Rhett once she is all of a sudden ready for sex and wants to roll the dice and do it without protection because "she trusts him to pull out." Hmm...okay. The ending scene when he tries to win her back is beyond cheesy. 

Please, save yourself some time and skip this one.

Grade: 1/5
