That time I had the brilliant idea to ask my good friend for lessons in seduction…
Awkward? Maybe. But how else is a good girl going to find out if she likes being naughty? I might be sweet as cherry pie, but I’m also bold and damn curious. And Gabe is charming, trustworthy, aces at seduction (or so I hear) and—bonus!— willing to give me lessons. But to guarantee it won’t ruin our friendship, I have some specific requirements for his instruction. I want these classes to be hypothetical more than hands-on. So what if he’s hella sexy? I can handle that, no problem.
I have it bad for Arden. She’s bright, brilliant, insanely fun, and I want to take her home and spend all night together—and then spend the day with her, too. When she asks for my help, I see my chance to win her sweet heart by showing her how much fun we can have getting spicy. Trouble is, she has a different idea of what “bedroom exploration” should mean. Now I’m going to have to get really clever to win her over.
Good thing I know exactly how to upend her best laid plans.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Best Laid Plans is such a feel-good romance! I love the connection between Gabe and Arden, and their meet-cute was one of my favorites!

After the opening where Gabe and Arden first meet, the book jumps to a year later where they have become best friends, completely platonic, but Gabe is starting to realize that he wants more. I really appreciated that the book starts there, because the story was more about how he’s going to go about winning her over rather than him realizing that he had no idea he’s in love with his best friend. The problem for Gabe, however, is that he’s a bit of a ladies’ man, and Arden is sweet, good, sweet Arden.

He doesn’t do commitment, she doesn’t do casual. So when Arden propositions Gabe to “experiment” with her to see what kind of non-vanilla she likes, he thinks it’s the perfect way to get her to realize that he could be more than just her best bud. Except, that the best-laid plans often go awry.

This book was so fun. Arden and Gabe are just adorable together, from their Words With Friends games to him talking about her with his Pop. There is a lot of steamy heat between them, and the build-up is such a slow burn! Another great romcom from Lauren Blakely, with plenty of nods to some of her other couples! (Arden is friends with Finley from Unzipped, and Gabe is Tom’s cousin!)

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
