    One thought on “The Girl He Knows”

    1. I really enjoyed this book! The book begins with Paisley waking up in bed with her best friends older brother, Hank. She's recently divorced and is trying to find herself after her failed marriage. At times, I found Paisley to be a little frustrating and weak but I loved her and Hank together and he really brought out the best in her character. Hank is funny, sweet, romantic, kind, and in the Navy. He's the perfect book boyfriend! I really enjoyed the supporting characters and Paisley's group of [...]

    2. 3.5 stars I think I would have enjoyed it more if Paisley had not been so wishy washy in her feelings towards Hank.

    3. A free copy of this book was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This review does contain some spoilers.I have struggled with how to review this story quite a bit because I found it in parts promising, but frustrating. The Girl He Knows is the story of Paisley, who is determined to move on and throw herself into the dating scene following her divorce from her cheating husband. However, despite her plans, she doesn't expect for her first conquest to be her best friend Gigi's b [...]

    4. Man, I needed this book. The quirky, fun humor hit me at just the right time. I swear to God, I laughed so damned hard through the sex toy party I couldn't see straight. I mean, really, who hasn't been in that exact (and grossly awkward) situation? Even better is when Hank finds BOB. ;)Yes, the humor was great and the back and forth tension between Hank and Paisley was spot on for this light, enjoyable romance, but I think the part I liked even better were the rich emotional arcs. I could really [...]

    5. Received an ARC copy from Netgalley for a honest review.4.5 starsLots of humour and romance involved in this book. It's been a while since I read a funny romance. It had me laughing out loud a few times and couldn't get enough of the chemistry between all the characters, even her crazy best friends. Paisley is divorced and isn't looking for a boyfriend. So when she finds herself in bed with Hank, her best-friends brother, she is on unknown territory. Hank is sweet, trust worthy, and has always b [...]

    6. This book is laugh out loud funny, but with an undercurrent of the difficulty of accepting love after betrayal. Paisley is relatable, she's flawed, but genuine, and I think that's what makes her so likable. The romance in this book is tender and sexy and sweet. Hank is swoon worthy, right from the start. The chemistry between him and Paisley had me rooting for them from the beginning. There were some heavier tones in this book, but I think they balance the more hilarious parts. It isn't just flu [...]

    7. This was a lovely read.  I enjoyed the insights I got from struggles I've never personally understood. It's a wonderful coming home and finding yourself story. I did want that last scene, however.  Mrs. Rose, you owe me a shower scene.  

    8. *whining*See, now this is exactly the type of book I want to avoid, but end up reading. It makes me want to tear my hair out and scream that I never seem to learn how to select books. Like, seriously? When will I fucking learn?In my defense, the premise of this book was really good. And I have hair like the model on the cover so maybe that justifies it?No?Oh well.This is one of those books. Ones that don’t even need explaining. You read the premise and you get the general idea of the book. And [...]

    9. I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand if you think about it in a light sort of way without concentrating on the characters too much, it's a fun, quick read, with elements of good humor. On the other hand, once you look into Paisley's character in depth, there's something just wrong there.Some of the things that bugged me a little were the fact that you never know how Hank and Paisley ended up together in the first place for them to have the one night stand the book starts with. [...]

    10. *Review from my blog Skeleton Key Reviews skeletonkeyreviews/?p=309*Paisley has just gotten out of a college marriage. She supported her med school husband and put her life on hold. Then finds him a couple of years later in her bed with some one else. Now she has to reenter dating society and learn to date all over again. She is determined to stand on her own two feet and not be a doormat again.Hank is her sister’s hot Navy brother. She has always counted on him and has always been attracted t [...]

    11. The Girl He Knows is a sweet love story. Filled with realistic characters and real-life situations. Hank is refreshingly normal. He's a hard working military man, not some billionaire alpha-male. He's masculine without the need to dominate. Paisley is rediscovering herself following a divorce. She's so concerned with the idea of needing to sow her wild oats that she loses herself. Kristi Rose does a wonderful job of creating Paisley's world. The dialogue is witty and real. What I loved most was [...]

    12. This book is an excellent romance. Full of laughter but still maintaining a sense of reality. Paisley wakes up naked next to her best friend's older brother. Refusing to acknowledge a lifetime of secret attraction. Paisley and Hank agree to a no strings attached arrangement. Unfortunately, no strings only works when both partners don't really care. That is definitely not the case here. It is a fast, funny read that I highly recommend.

    13. Amazing readThis is a funny romance and a very good read. I love that one of the towns this is set in, is the town I live in. The detail of the characters and the way the families interact was very good. There are so many things in this book that I can relate to. I have been through divorce so I could relate. I have a best friend who dated & ended up marrying my brother. This was such a good, emotional rollercoaster read. I’d definitely read it again.

    14. Pretty good book. I really liked Paisley as the main character she develops well throughout the book. I also really liked her relationship with Hank, it didn't feel rushed or forced. Hank was a little unnecessarily stupid at the end but it didn't ruin the whole book for me. I just wish there had been a little more to the ending. I hate when the main characters exchange I love yous then the book just abruptly ends.

    15. Great read!I've laughed & cried with the characters as the author brings real life scenarios to the forefront through them. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone. Can't wait to read the next one in the series!

    16. Fun and Flirty. Excellent debut novel from Kristi Rose. Mostly fun and light hearted, with just enough suspense to pull the heartstrings.

    17. Great book!!Would recommend this book to any romantic!! Couldn't put it down and now want to see where hank and paisley take their relationship! Fantastic!

    18. I received a copy of this ARC a few weeks ago and to be honest I was really nervous about starting the book. I have a problem where I get all these books I really want to read and then can’t decide what I’m in the mood for, plus, I work full-time, am an active runner, and beginning the process of grad school. Needless to say, I have to plan time to read, and when I make it through a book in two days–like I did with this–you know that it is something special.I tend to gravitate towards fa [...]

    19. To read this review and others like it check out my site at homelovebooks This is one of those books that I loved during the first half and then by the time I was finished I had fallen out of love with. I wanted this book to be awesome, I loved the premise (quite frankly I'm obsessed with the whole falling for the best friends brother story line) but ultimately this book just didn't live up to its first half. So the first half of the book is pretty funny and enjoyable. I liked Paisley, she's com [...]

    20. The premise behind The Girl He Knows (TGHK for short) is a common theme in books and movies: two good friends agreeing to a “no strings attached” relationship and one of them falls in love with the other. Yes, there are some twists in TGHK but it basically follows that theme. So what is special about TGHK?For one, this tried and tested no-strings-attached formula works. Still does, at least for me. I guess that’s because these things actually happen and because at one point in our lives we [...]

    21. 4.5 out of 5 STARSI knew from the start of the book that I was going to love it. How can you not love a book that starts out with a girl being naked in bed, next to a naked man and to the sounds of his mom telling him it is time to wake up… (You just have to laugh!!!)Paisley and Gigi have been friends all their lives, Hank just happens to be Gigi’s older brother. Paisley has not been going through the best time in her life, since her divorce just over a year ago. She is trying to reclaim her [...]

    23. New to me author Kristi Rose offers a laugh out loud funny story about friends who become lovers. On the heels of her recent divorce, Paisley wakes up in her best friend, Gigi’s childhood home, naked, lying next to Gigi’s brother, Hank. After some serious freaking out, she manages to get dressed and makes her escape.

    24. My Star Rating for this is: 4 out of 5! :)My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘THE GIRL HE KNOWS' by Author KRISTI ROSE (via: Booksmoviesfandoms.wordpress): This is a romance story about growing into oneself after divorce and figuring out what was missing in her failed marriage. ‘The Girl He Knows’ is written in the P.O.V. of the main character, Paisley who tries to become independent and explore the dating world. But one choice she makes will change everything.Paisley has be [...]

    25. ****SPOILERS****This is hard for me! I really enjoyed The Girl He Knows; I love this story of best friends becoming lovers. I do agree with another reviewer that I would have like the opening scene to have taken place at the first kiss, rather than the morning after. The book was funny, and cute! A good beach/summer read. The character development was okay, and I kinda liked all the characters, they were people I would like to be around, especially Gigi. However, I just have few problems with th [...]

She needs to get out of there quickly before his parents see her. She fears the disapproval of their families if their one night stand is discovered. What an intriguing beginning for a romance novel! The frantic pace continues through most of the book.It is a sweet, simple story set in a small town in Florida where everyone knows your business. Paisley is smart. She is [...]

However, the book begins with her waking up in bed with Hank, brother of her best [...]

    28. We start out the morning after Paisley sleeps with Hankd let me just tell you that was a fun scene to witness. I think I was laughing or chuckling the whole time right through until Paisley finally gets away. It was hilarious. It was fun. And it got the reader interested. After all, in this day and age who cares who sleeps with who(barring diseases and such)? So it was really fun to hear Paisley's monologue and hear some of the reasons she feels sleeping with Hank is wrong.I enjoyed the characte [...]

    29. Paisley has been hurt - bad. She's already gone through a horrific divorce and she's just not ready to be attached right now.
