Break Up With Him, for Me by Whitney G - ARC Review

Penelope, I know that it’s three o’clock in the morning, but I have to get this off my chest.

I can't give you any more advice on landing this other guy, can't tell you another "sexy" thing that you should do, or suggest a new set of filthy words that you should text him late at night.

As your best friend, I've reached my limit, and I can honestly say that he doesn't deserve you.

I'm not saying all of this because I'm f-cking jealous, or because he had the audacity to say that he makes more money than me. (I still can't find his name on the Forbes 500 list, and I know damn well that he's renting that Ferrari, but that's a story for a different day.)

He's not who you think he is, and the better man has always been right in front of you...

You have every reason to never give me a chance since you know me better than anyone, and you agree with all the tabloids calling me "The Cocky King of New York," and the "Untamed Playboy of Manhattan." But I honestly believe that you're better off with someone else, and I need you to see.

I'm not asking for too much...I just want you to break up with him, for me.

I can't lie, I smiled my way through this title.

Hayden and Penelope met as, well, enemies, through Penelope's brother.  And, slowly start to rely on one another as friends, even though they are both surprised, at least initially, to discover they have become each other's best friend.

And, Penelope has awful, absolutely awful, taste/luck with men.  Something we get to experience first hand as these awful dates are detailed to the reader, both from her perspective and from Hayden's.

I loved that this was a slow burn.  I love how the blurb appears in the book and how it's worked in.  I love how willing Hayden is to pretend he isn't motivated by wanting Penelope for himself...until all of a sudden he figures it out.

There were some side stories that also worked well as they seemed to pull the characters through the real heart of the story, which was getting Penelope and Hayden to the Happily Ever After that they deserved.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
