Cassie Mae redefines the New Adult genre with a novel that answers the eternal question: What do you do when you’re head over heels for your best friend’s guy?

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.

This is a pretty unique store of a quadruplet love interests. I like the story but I did find the characters a bit too immature for their ages. Then again, when are we to old to learn new things?

I can pretty much summarize this story as “your best-friend is in love with your partner”. Kayla is Reagan’s best friend. Reagan is dating Talon. Kayla is in love with Talon. Wesley is Talon’s best friend. And Wesley is in love with Reagan. Kayla teams up with Wesley to drive Reagan and Talon part. How lovely are these two? What are best friends for, huh?

My issue with this story is that I found it a bit too cheesy for my taste. It was a bit funny but most part I couldn’t stand the shallow dialogue between the characters. Kayla loves to say “super”. I think I counted about 10 supers in one chapter. I didn’t like her at all. I definitely do not want someone like her as a best friend. She’s a horrible best friend.

Unlike Kayla, I felt bad for Wesley for falling into her trap. He is so cute and adorable. I like him the most. He is down to earth, sweet and simply nice. He is the goofy friend we all need in life.

Overall the story itself was cute. I think it would’ve been better without Kayla, HA! This is a fast and fun read. If you like cheesy/fluffy stories, then this is for you!
