Blurb: Ever since high school, Kayla has been crazy for gorgeous football player Talon. But before she could muster the courage to tell him, he became a hot item with her beautiful BFF, Reagan. The only person who knows Kayla’s secret is Wesley, Talon’s best bud—and he’s got it bad for Reagan. Now they’re all in college together, hanging out 24/7. For Kayla, seeing the two lovebirds together is absolutely unbearable. So Kayla and Wesley hatch a plot to drive them apart before Talon has a chance to give Reagan the Christmas gift she’s been waiting for.
Soon enough, the once happy couple is fighting. Reagan suddenly can’t get enough of Wesley’s goofy sense of humor, and Talon seems to be paying more attention to Kayla than a guy who’s “only a friend” ever should. But just when everything seems to be falling into place, Kayla and Wesley accidentally spend a night together and discover a hitch in their plan they never considered: that switching partners may not lead to a perfect ending after all.
When their lips meet, even for the smallest of seconds some days, I want to leap over my desk, shove Reagan out of the way, and fight to the death for the affection of this perfect, perfect specimen.
And I know that in the movies the girl always end up with the guy, but I’m not freaking Sandra Bullock. I’m more like her little sister who missed the puberty train.
I loved this book. I love this book so much I am re-reading it right way just so I can experience it again. I can see this story easily becoming one of my all time faves. It was so well written. I felt all Kayla’s love, jealousy, anger, resentment and hurt. I wanted her to get the guy. I wanted their plan to work. In fact, I was a little upset that the feelings started to change. I was all “Noooo! Don’t give up.”
But then, Wesley burrowed under my skin like a thirsty tick, sucking out my feelings for Talon. Leaving me with his sweet-hearted, lusty goodness to take their place. And I fell….hard for this guy. He was so helpful and delightfully obnoxious. Add in his humorous side and my heart was a goner.
I wasn’t all that into Reagan to be honest. She came across as a bit demanding and manipulative. Although, to be honest, with Kayla trying to steal her BFF’s boyfriend, I really don’t have room to talk. CM wrote this story in a way that made me think their plan was genius and I was totally on board with it from the beginning. Which is shocking when you think about it. Cause IRL, if my BFF tried to steal my boyfriend with this elaborate plan, I’d chuck her ass to the curb.
Bottom line, read this book!
