Both coming from broken homes, Riley and Will are each committed to not being involved in romantic relationships, so when strikingly good looking Will inquired about posting his flyer for his low rent flats at the library, Madam Librarian Riley had dollar signs in her eyes not stars. The landlord and tenant become fabulously supportive and accepting friends over time, so when Will needs a huge favor, he doesn’t hesitate to ask Riley to help him out of an awkward social commitment—his brother’s wedding.
After Riley reluctantly agrees to be Will’s plus one (she does know why this situation is so awkward for Will), everything snow balls as one little fib grows and spreads like a wild fire on a hot, dry day. I loved when the effortless friendship turned into a sweet realization that, like REO Speedwagon, they “can’t fight this feeling any more”.
In addition to a sweet love story, Ms. Ashby has packed Dating the Guy Upstairs with a great message. Riley and Will have built their lives around half-truths and their limited knowledge of their parents’ relationships. They fervently avoid dealing with their respective parents and the misperceptions of their marital relationships. The inability to see the myriad shades of gray in an adult relationship colored Will and Riley’s attitudes about their own adult relationships. Not having open conversations to deal with the perceived issues has resulted in them erecting brick walls around their hearts. Running and hiding from issues serves no one.
“…if I keep closing doors behind me I’ll be stuck in a room on my own, getting lonely. That’s why I’m here opening a door.” --Will
A chance drop-in at a community center closing event leads to a catalyst for change and resolution. Once Will and Riley stop avoiding confronting the past, they are finally able to move forward together.
A 3.5 star read for me.

William Henderson was adorable and I totally loved the way he would speak and treat Riley. And his whole ‘want to save the world’ persona was totally sexy. Add the quiet suffering he has going on because of being left heartbroken by his fiancé, he doesn’t want the pain again so now he never wants a relationship, wow swoon.
Riley was sweet, innocent and an amazing friend, willing to do anything for those that she loves. She even attended a wedding and pretends to be William’s girlfriend.
I'm a Fan of friends to lovers reads. So I really did enjoy it. Only Con I would give is that the POV would change and I would have to keep going back to see who's POV I was on. But yeah I would recommend this book.
