Publisher's Summary

Falling in love isn't complicated...unless it's with your best friend.  

A close, easygoing friendship can all change with just one kiss. Seventeen-year-old Remi Beaufort learns this the hard way when she plays a blindfolded kissing game at a party.  

She thinks she's kissing Jeremy, the totally hot basketball player she's been crushing on. And the kiss...it's amazing. Heart-stopping, world-changing, toe-curling. The kiss makes her forget about her overbearing mother, the next-door neighbor's drama, and the probability that she'll fail her senior year. The best kiss of her life makes all that fall away.  

Until her blindfold falls off, and she realizes that instead of kissing her crush, she's kissing Elijah, her best friend since third grade.  

Though she manages to convince Elijah that he was kissing his girlfriend, Remi can't get the thought of his lips on hers out of her head. As things between them grow more and more complicated - because it turns out her fantasizing about his mouth is more of a problem than it sounds - Remi has to make a choice: does she live the rest of her life loving her best friend in secret? Or does she tell the truth and risk ruining their friendship forever?

No character development, so why should I care?

I'm only on chapter 9 but I'm going have to pass on this book. The author didn't really introduce or establish the characters very well. I barely knew their names and already getting thrown into the plot. Speaking of names, why do they need so many nicknames for one person? (Remi, Rem, Beenie, Bean, B). Can you tell me more about them first before I have to remember who they're talking about? And who fails Art class and to the point you can't graduate? This was such an unnecessary conflict especially if all she had to do was participate to not fail.

The book so far is just too basic and predictable. I can tell you exactly what'll happen without even having to read it. Granted, maybe it's just my age (early 30's) and this book would be more suited for actual teenagers.

The narration was ok just too many long breaks inbetween sentences. The book had a lot of potential, I just wish the author spent a couple more chapters in the beginning developing the friendship with us so we could understand their connection better.

Cute and fun and deeply emotion.

I love a good friends-to-lovers story, and this one is cake. So very good. An absolutely lovely read.
