Series: Experiment Duet #2
1.Get over my best friend’s brother.
2.Remember that I’m over him.
3.Prove I can date other people.
It should be easy.
Setting up a dating website with the guy I’ve been in love with since I was five wasn’t my smartest idea.
Especially since he’s my best friend’s brother—thankfully, she’s okay with the fact I’m pulling a Sandy and I’m hopelessly devoted to him.
Which is why it’s time to get over him.
So I do something crazy and ask Dominic Austin to find me a date. He does—if I find him one, too.
Since we own Stupid Cupid, it should be easy, right? And it is.
My date is perfect. His date is perfect. Everything is perfect.
Until he kisses me…
And a big-ass mess…
I had high expectations for this story, I literally couldn’t wait to get my hands on it after reading The Hook Up Experiment, I was super excited and I knew there would be a lot of bickering between Chloe and Dom and an explosive chemistry. I was definitely right about that but I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would and that’s mainly because I couldn’t quite understand some of Chloe’s dramas. Don’t get me wrong, I liked this romance, I just didn’t love it as much as I thought I would.
Chloe and Dom have been working together for a long time, Chloe has been in love with Dom forever (and I do mean forever!) but she knows they would be a disaster if they got together, especially because she would probably kill him as soon as he lost his keys, which happens quite often. Anyway, they have different personalities and Chloe needs to get over Dom and find someone suitable for her: reliable, steady, not related to her best friend, etc. It’s not easy to be in love with your best friend’s brother aka your business partner who is also the exact opposite of what you’re looking for in a relationship.
Dom is constantly forgetting and losing things, he is definitely, like Chloe calls him once, a num-nuts. He knows Chloe since he was a child, he has been in love with her for years but he knows she hates him and he doesn’t have a chance with her. But he can’t help wanting her fiercely. He thinks he needs to see her move on with her life with another man to be able to forget her. He just wasn’t expecting that he would be the one to choose her soulmate.
I really liked Dom, his sense of humor and his forgetfulness made me laugh several times, the fact that he was hot and smart didn’t hurt either. I did struggle to understand Chloe sometimes, she was constantly jumping between hot and
cold angry, she was almost acting like a teen. I also think that, maybe, I just needed more of Dom and Chloe in a relationship together and a little less of build up.
Overall, The Dating Experiment is a sweet, funny, enjoyable, fast paced romance with lots of banter and sexual tension. I really liked the epilogue, it was also awesome to reconnect with the gang (I know I’ve said this before but I absolutely love Peyton, she’s definitely my favorite character!).
