Book Description

Kate is helping her best friends Lucy and Jackson plan their wedding and is attempting to juggle a few romances of her own.

Everyone is questioning when it’ll finally be Kate’s turn to walk down the aisle, but she can’t even manage to hang on to a boyfriend! She does have several options, though. There’s Chris, the smooth, sexy photographer. And then there’s Max, the boy next door “friend with benefits…”

Kate can't help but wonder - is it possible to date one of your guy friends? How about two? At the same time? Which one of the guys will she choose?

2.0 out of 5 stars Really juvenile and kind of stupid (warning SPOLIERS) December 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
5% of the way through, and the main character has complained about not wanting to date one of her male friends - despite them having a friends with benefits arrangement and him wanting more - because she doesn't want to ruin the friendship. But then she turns around and starts thinking about trying to date another of her male friends - one who other friends say is really just a manwhore - because she thinks she can change him. Apparently she has stopped caring about losing any of these guys as friends. It makes no sense and the main character sounds like a complete idiot. Fast forward to neither of the situations working out and suddenly manwhore is seriously dating someone, so is hook-up dude, and our 'heroine' is all whiney and emo about her best girl friend getting married and being with her 'perfect man' blah blah. Continual references to how you just know when 'the one' comes along as well as ridiculous waffling about by the main character made this excruciating to read. I only finished it to see where it would go and to add more fuel to my review. Finally she ends up with a third close guy friend that there were previously zero sparks with much less any kind of attraction whatsoever and I can only end the book with the feeling that the author is trying to tell me that we all must settle just so we can be with someone. Yes, I realize that the heroine and the third guy were really good friends before, but there was NOTHING there but that. NOTHING. So to have them suddenly end up together felt rushed, contrived and just plain stupid. I also felt as though the author was telling all those idiots who blather on and on about being 'friend-zoned', that their one sided crushes really can turn into something if they just wait it out. Hogwash. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that enjoyable! May 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Seems like this was written in haste to get a book out there. Very trite dialogue. Nothing deeply developed. Hard to believe that Kate was the same character as in The One That Got Away! She was weak, needy, and lacked deep thinking skills. Very disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for Light reading July 7, 2013
By Avidear
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book was pleasant and easy to read. The plot was a little thin but at least it was a bit different to the usual romance. There were no major twists and turns that keep you guessing - just a cute story about a girl who enjoys the company of a group of male friends and finds that she cant distinguish between friendship and love. She sorts it out in the end but its a little predictable. Overall, not bad but no classic.

2.0 out of 5 stars this was sub par at best. April 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a good story line, and really unlikable characters.
The main character was so annoying. I really didn't like her. She was stupid and so were all the supporting characters.

This honestly seamed like a very bad rudimentary version of, In Search of a Love Story -Rachel Schurig

In Search of a Love Story had kind of similar cast of characters and story line, but it's done so much better.

The ending of this book when all the friends and girlfriends loved each other was ridiculous! It was so unrealistic and over the top happy perfect life. The main characters two best friends were so annoying. How many times can one book say "omg they're the perfect/ideal couple! They are made for each other! I can't believe they perfectly they fit together! I want to be just like them!" I was so annoyed.

Bottom line is I like cheesy rom-com and chick-lit's just as much as the next person, but this book was just bad. I did not like it. It was a bit over the top honestly.

I don't recommend unless your into annoying dumb main characters and useless supporting characters with a good dose of over-the-top-ness.

2.0 out of 5 stars Eh April 22, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
This book wasn't what I thought it would be. I really didn't like the protagonist she was immature and superficial. I tried understanding her but half the time she acted like a huge brat. Also didn't like the fact that she pretty much tongued down more than half her male friends, thought there was some code against dating the friends of someone you used to see? Just odd. Only good thing I can say was that I didn't expect her to end up with who she did so it was a good turn of events. However, even when she did find her guy it seemed like she just kind of settled. Read at your own risk just thought I'd warn the next reader.

Sweet story. But not very original. Several passages felt very rushed and more like an outline than a finished project.
