Goodreads | Amazon (Free)

Sean has been in love with Lacey for as long as he can remember, but she has pushed him firmly into the friend zone and plans to keep him there. Or so he thinks.

Lacey did put Sean in the friend zone, but now she's ready for more. Only he won't make a move. 

Lacey enters a contest in which a kiss from her will be the prize. Can Sean win the contest? Can he win the girl?

Sean is Logan Reed's best guy friend but Lacey is Seans true best friend. He would like to change the best friend title to girlfriend. Lacey is aware that Sean has feelings for her. Sean told her but she was scared of losing him and said she just wanted to be friends. She could not live without him in her life and does not want him that way. Sean will take any part of Lacey that he can get so he settles for just friends.

Lacey has entered into a contest that the college fair is having to help raise money for charity. Lacey is at a kissing booth and the person who guesses the closest number of jellybeans wins a kiss. Lacey want Sean to be that kiss but can not tell him that. She wants him to make the move but Sean won't after hearing she thinks of him as her FRIEND.

After a near kiss that happened now Sean is determined to win that kiss. With Logan and his brothers help they buy guesses in hopes of winning the kiss.

Cute story, super short.

Only thing I did not like is when the female character flake out. Lacey told Sean NO and now she wants that to be a YES but instead of coming out and telling him the truth that she wants him just as much as he wants her Lacey wants Sean to cross the line and make a move. Now this is what women do wrong if you ask me. This is a game. Lacey wants what was offered before but if Lacey didn't and Sean crossed that line their friendship would end. This is why people need to communicate and not play games.

Anyway that is my only criticism and it is not really one for the book but of life itself.

RATING: 2 STARS (only because it was too short)

Happy Reading!
