Is it ever too late to leave the friend zone?

Nathan and Bree have been best friends since high school with a standing Tuesday running date. Both of them have feelings but they don’t want to ruin their friendship by letting the other know. Everyone can see that they love each other but themselves.

Nathan, who is from a privileged background and is now a quarterback for a NFL team, wants to help Bree out since she has always had to work hard for what she has. She runs a ballet school out of a small building and had her dreams of dancing in a company dashed by an accident right after high school.

This book was so cute! I loved the two of them fighting their feelings and trying so hard not to ruin anything. He always wanted her around and she thought she was one of the guys. But seriously I loved TequilaGate that caused the whole fake relationship. And of course his team helping him develop the cheat sheet to help him flirt with her to finally get her to realize that he was in love with her.

Thank you for @victoryeditingngc  @netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

We had a beach day and since there was a cute beach scene I thought it worked. Last Saturday before school starts- what did you do today? Plus my little ballerina in the distance doing her butterfly stretches.

✨Oops just noticed my editing was off for the picture lol forgive me. I did it at the beach and it was so bright lol. I could barely see my screen lol.


Is it ever too late to leave the friend-zone?

Hi, my name is Bree Camden, and I’m hopelessly in love with my best friend and star quarterback Nathan Donelson (so is half of America, judging by the tabloids and how much the guy dates). The first step is admitting, right? Except, I can never admit it to him because he clearly doesn’t see me that way, and the last thing I want is for things to get weird between us.

Nothing but good old-fashioned, no-touching-the-sexiest-man-alive, platonic friendship for us! Everything is exactly how I like it! Yes. Good. (I’m not crying, I’m just peeling an onion.)

Our friendship is going swimmingly until I accidentally spill my beans to a reporter over too much tequila, and now the world seems to think me and Nathan belong together. Oh, and did I mention we have to date publicly for three weeks until after the Super Bowl because we signed a contract with…oops, forgot I can’t tell anyone about that!

Bottom line is, now my best friend is smudging all the lines and acting very un-platonic, and I’m just trying to keep my body from bursting into flames every time he touches me.

How am I going to make it through three weeks of fake dating Nathan without anything changing between us? Especially when it almost-sort-a-kinda seems like he’s fighting for a completely different outcome?

Send help.
XO Bree

Buckle up for a slow burn, sports romance with combustible chemistry from the first chapter, laugh-out-loud humor, and easy to love characters. The Cheat Sheet has all the sizzle, but no on-page explicit content (PG-13 equivalent for mild language, implied sexual situations, and alcohol use).
