Someone should’ve told me pretending to date your best friend only works if you aren’t in love with them.

Kennedy Davis is not in love with her best friend. That’s what she tells every girl she dates anyway, but it always ends up the same.

Sienna Stevens is in love with her best friend, but she’s too afraid to admit it. A hopeless romantic who hopes her best friend might one day see her as more.

When Kennedy must return home for her brother’s wedding it only makes sense to bring her best friend along. But Kennedys fears of returning home give Sienna a chance for Kennedy to see her as more—by being her fake girlfriend.

So when the line between friends and more gets blurred with Sienna, will Kennedy finally see what everyone’s been telling her all along and confess her true feelings? Or will she hide how she feels to keep their friendship?

After all, a fake relationship only for the summer, can’t hurt right?

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Friends to lovers time in Seaside! 

Sienna has been in love with her best friend forever but never acted on her feelings for fear of losing her friendship. Kennedy has been in love with Sienna for about the same length of time and hasn't acted on these feelings for the same reason.

Kennedy is fresh from a break-up when she is asked to come back home for her brother's engagement. A break-up that happened because Kennedy's ex-girlfriend couldn't deal with the close friendship she has with Sienna. Kennedy doesn't want to go home single so when Sienna offers to go with her as her fake girlfriend, she takes up the offer. 

Pretending to be together provides them both the opportunity to see what life may look like if they take the next step together. With Kennedy's brother's wedding in the background to provide the romantic settings and an old enemy from high school trying to make Kennedy's life difficult providing the tension, this was just up my street. I really enjoyed all the different parts of the story that came together to produce a sweet and romantic read for these two lovely women.
