Book Summary:

Handsome twenty-eight-year-old Will Hallerman has finally had enough of the dating world. He’s ready to find a wife and settle down. This announcement is catastrophic in Hannah Becker’s world. After knowing Will her entire life and adoring him from afar since junior high school, she realizes her chance at love with him is in grave danger. Hannah’s problem? To Will, she will never be more than his best friend’s little sister. Determined to open his eyes to her charms, Hannah sets out to sabotage Will’s wife hunt by placing nightmare dates in his path and taking his search on a wild goose chase. Her plan is risky, but she’s willing to take a chance to catch the eye of her soul mate.

Despite her crazy schemes, nothing seems to be working. Hannah can’t help but wonder if it’s time to set aside this childhood crush to move on and settle down herself. She’s ready for a fresh start with a great guy. If only Will weren’t suddenly changing the rules of the game . . . And how can Hannah move on when Will just won’t let her forget?

Anita's Review 2

There is nothing more enjoyable than having some form (whether movie, book, T.V. show, etc.) of romantic entertainment that you KNOW you are going to enjoy with no reservations. A Melanie Jacobson book is like that for me. Always Will is no exception. It is an unrequited love novel wrapped up in witty, quick, intelligent dialogue. I love Will and Hannah. I love the fall in love with your brother’s friend template. Sophie (Hannah’s friend) is lovely as well. And, no one (and I do mean no one) is better at having a hilarious dialog between two characters via IM, dating site, text – fill in the blank – than Ms. Jacobson. It is a trademark she uses that has me giggling with happiness in each new novel.

I love that no animals or humans were hurt in the making of this book. (you always have to feel bad for the guy that falls in love with the girl who doesn’t even see him; though she tries.) This is a fun, flirty, love story – my favorite kind.
