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.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!

My Thoughts:

This is a New Adult title but it's a young NA title. The characters are 18 years old, fresh out of high school and off at college. I mention this as they act younger than most characters in NA books. They could still be in high school from the way they act.

Unlike most NA books, there isn't any high drama in this story, no deep dark secrets buried in their pasts, violence or real heartache... Just unrequited crushes.

It's a sweet story... Funny, easy and light to read. It gives you some nice butterflies (towards the end) and everything ends very nicely - if a bit predictably.

The characters are amusing, generally likable and the book moves on at a good pace.

I enjoyed it and I recommend it for anyone looking for an uncomplicated, light-hearted romance. I'd compare it to the likes of Cora Carmack (with slightly younger characters!)
