Ever since high school, Kayla has been crazy for gorgeous football player Talon. But before she could muster the courage to tell him, he became a hot item with her beautiful BFF, Reagan. The only person who knows Kayla’s secret is Wesley, Talon’s best bud—and he’s got it bad for Reagan. Now they’re all in college together, hanging out 24/7. For Kayla, seeing the two lovebirds together is absolutely unbearable. So Kayla and Wesley hatch a plot to drive them apart before Talon has a chance to give Reagan the Christmas gift she’s been waiting for.
Soon enough, the once happy couple is fighting. Reagan suddenly can’t get enough of Wesley’s goofy sense of humor, and Talon seems to be paying more attention to Kayla than a guy who’s “only a friend” ever should. But just when everything seems to be falling into place, Kayla and Wesley accidentally spend a night together and discover a hitch in their plan they never considered: that switching partners may not lead to a perfect ending after all.
My question is why didn't Wes and Kayla hooked up sooner? I was cheering for them from page one. They knew each other and not just the superficial stuff. Kayla knew that Wes was pretending to tear his heart out when they were on the phone andd Wes never convinced me that he was so into Reagan. In the beginning Kayla had a huge crush on Talon and she was saying things about him that gave my gag reflex a workout. The whole "You belong with me" by Taylor Swift idea and the way she described him were not of my liking.
I like the story and the way it was processed. Wes seemed like a really cute guy whom I would like to date, Kayla despite the fact that she hung up on the wrong boy was also on my good side and as for the couple aka Talon and Reagan I can not say that I have an opinion because I disliked them first, especially Reagan, but then they did something that I can not reveal and I actually liked them a little.
