Kelly Callahan had everything going for her. Everything that is, except for a relationship. It wasn’t for the lack of trying, it just seemed like she was a magnet for all the wrong ones. But all of that was about to change the minute she laid eyes on Jake.
On a dare from her close friend, Michelle, Kelly accepts a challenge to date and become Jake’s girlfriend within three months. The consequence of losing is global humiliation, and she refuses to lose.
Enlisting the help of her childhood friend and confidant, Brian, Kelly manages to catch Jakes attention. She also unknowingly hooks Brian who tries to sabotage the plan. Kelly finds herself with a dilemma; take the final step with Jake and win the plan or follow her heart and reveal her feelings for Brian.
Its a classic tale of friendship with complications; Kelly has been friends with Brian for years and has always had a crush on him, without ever telling him the truth about her feelings they have always been "just friends", when Michelle dares Kelly to snag the new guy Jake that works with Brian at the local bar the three month plan begins. This book changes POV from Kelly to Brian so you get an inside look at whats going on in both of their heads which I enjoy when its done right, and in this case it definetly is, there is no real gap in time line when the author switches POV which is the start of a new chapt. Brian has always had a thing for Kelly and though he has never acted on them and they have only ever been friends prefering to never be comitted to one girl Brian finds himself jealous of Jake who he recognizes so much of himself in and walks a fine line trying to help his friend win the bet at the same time as sabatoge her plans. This is just a fun story, a little predicatble for the outcome but a great beach read, perfect for the YA age group. It was a fast easy read and great distraction from all the holiday hubbub that I had been dealing with while testing my new ereader. (Kobo Arc which I love btw)
