review 2 2

I’ve never been a hallmark Christmas girl, but if those

Movies are anything like this book I have been missing out.

“The one you seek? Your forever guy, the love of your life…..You’ve already met him”

 Mark and Kelly have been best friends for 10 years. But that’s the gag, only best friends. Not even one hookup. When Kelly meets a strange woman who tells her that she’s already met her one true love, Kelly sets off on a mission to revisit her exes to see if it was any of them have a place in her future. Dragging Mark along with her.

 “It’s strange. Kissing him feels both wonderfully new and fresh, and yet comfortable and timeless, as though we’ve been doing this –or were meant to have been doing this—forever.”

 But like any classic destiny has other Ideas in mind. It’s the perfect best friends to lover’s romance. The passion between Kelly and Mark is Hot, hot, hot!

I loved this book so much; it was the sweetest and the funniest. I loved Mark and Kelly together you could feel the chemistry coming off the pages whenever they are together. Mark is the guy you should deff never friend zone & Kelly is all of our inner thoughts. This was the perfect read for Christmas & I highly recommend it!

She’s making a list—and checking it twice. But is there a nice guy among all her naughty exes? The New York Times bestselling author of Blurred Lines returns with a charming friends-to-lovers rom-com.

When a psychic tells spunky, superstitious Kelly Byrne that she’s already met her true love, she becomes obsessed with the idea of tracking him down before Christmas. Kelly immediately writes up an “Ex List” and starts contacting old boyfriends to figure out which one is the one. When her college sweetheart rolls into town, Kelly convinces herself that they’re meant to be. The trouble is, sparks are flying with someone she’s never given a chance: her best friend, Mark.

Mark Blakely has watched the guys on Kelly’s list break her heart, and he’s not looking forward to watching them do it all over again. Mark’s always been there for her, but the timing’s never worked out for their relationship to be something more. Now, just as Mark is ready to move on, the sexual tension between them is suddenly off the charts. With Christmas morning around the corner, he just hopes Kelly will wake up and realize that everything she wants has been right in front of her all along.
