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.
Kayla has had a major crush on Talon since high school. The bad thing is that he is the longtime boyfriend of her best friend, Reagan. Wesley (Talon's best friend) has a major crush on Reagan. So what are two lovelorn college students to do? They team up to scheme a breakup and claim their crushes of course! Kayla and Wesley spend so much time together trying to breakup their best friends that they (unbeknownst to themselves) develop feelings for each other. What ensues is a delightful romantic comedy that I couldn't help but fall in love with!
“I love my best friend’s boyfriend. But I swear, I saw him first.”
Kayla and Wesley were hilarious. The situations they would find themselves in were unbelievable. How often do you try to kiss a guy, but end up biting his nose instead or buy your best friend string underwear and pushup bras for Christmas just to see her blush when she opens it? Each chapter had a quirky title hinting at the next debacle that was coming up and every diary entry brought another smile. These were four characters who were such close friends that they knew each other better than they knew themselves. Reading this book made me want to have a close group of buddies to laugh with every day. It brought me back to a time in school when nights out became gossip the next day.
Kayla was a great character... she was sweet, funny, smart, and clumsy. She feels bad about breaking up her best friend's romance.... but at the same time she feels like everyone will be happier in the long run. I can't say enough good things about this book. Even though it was a fun, lighthearted book it also had real emotion and depth. I loved the characters and the love "square". In the end there is a happily ever after for everyone in the group - with a twist!
