A woman who wants nothing to do with love or friendship finds both in the unlikeliest ways in this hilarious and heartwarming debut by Kerry Rea. 

This book was non-stop and had my emotions all over the place. Princess effing Sparkles will be my new melt down name for sure. I am pretty sure I would burn the world down if I found my fiance in bed with my best friend a month or two from the wedding.

Willa is having a coffee trying to meet up on a date when Maisie sits with her and begs her to 9pretend to be her friend and will pay her so her fiance thinks she has friends. I mean I think that’s how I met some of my friends) Which turns into a more long range situation that includes her being a bridesmaid.  She also has a enemies to lovers thing going with the best man. 

But Willa keeps running into her ex best friend – seriously just break up with people and grow up- don’t go behind their backs. You lose people. And everyone is depressed and broken and now trusts no one.

Willa was a successful blogger and she just couldn’t write anymore at least the content she wrote was not upbeat and positive. In the process of this fake friendship she learned to trust people and got a new friend and learned to love and trust herself again. Which helped her be able to write again.

And I loved that she lived with her sister. She was hilarious. My sister would probably not let me live with her but would definitely judge the hell out of me with the sweetest smile on her face. She’s still trying to figure me out. She doesn’t have any close friends that aren’t related to her husband and says I have so many friends that I can be mean to that’s why shes mean to me. And I told her that I am not mean to them that is why they are my friends. #shityoursistersays She has so many gems, just like our Papa Harry lol. 

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


A woman who wants nothing to do with love or friendship finds both in the unlikeliest ways in this hilarious and heartwarming debut by Kerry Rea.

Once upon a time, Willa Callister was a successful blogger with a good credit score, actual hobbies, and legs that she shaved more than once a month. But after finding her fiancé in bed with her best friend, she now spends her days performing at children’s birthday parties in a ball gown that makes her look like a walking bottle of Pepto Bismol. Willa dreams of starting fresh, where no one knows who she used to be, but first she needs to save up enough money to make it happen.

Maisie Mitchell needs something too: another bridesmaid for her wedding. After a chance encounter at a coffee shop, Maisie offers to pay Willa to be in her bridal party. Willa wants nothing to do with weddings–or Maisie–but the money will give her the freedom to start the new life she so badly desires.

Willa’s bridesmaid duties thrust her into Maisie’s high-energy world and into the path of hotshot doctor Liam Rafferty. But as Willa and Maisie form a real friendship, and Liam’s annoyingly irresistible smile makes her reconsider her mantra that all men are trash, Willa’s exit strategy becomes way more complicated. And when a secret from Maisie’s past threatens to derail the wedding, Willa must consider whether friendship–and romance–are worth sticking around for.
