Book Blurb:

“A little finger isn’t properly dressed without a man wrapped round it…”

Clothing connoisseur Coreen Fraser’s film-star style never leaves her wanting for male attention. But sourcing costumes for a 1930s murder-mystery weekend stops being fun when she discovers she has to wear a tweed suit and sensible shoes

Meanwhile, Coreen’s best friend, Adam Conrad, has his own plans for the weekend. One moonlit kiss later, Coreen sees the truth: Adam’s the only man who knows the girl beneath the skyscraper heels and scarlet lipstick. Is she brave enough to invite him to kiss that lipstick off anytime he likes?

My Thoughts:

This is the second book I read from this series and I don’t know about the others but this two have the same plot. Boy and girl are friends for a long time and discover that fight the feeling for the sake of the said friendship is not good enough.
This girl was something really special, since Coreen owns a clotting store based on the 30s and she dresses like that since her teenage years. I discovered during the read that her mother was a singer so I kinda understand her aptitude for dressing up.
Adam was a bit slow since the start but once he actually saw he could lose Coreen to some rich guy with a very uptight life, lol, things changed very fast.
Loved some sentences and the end was to sweet. Really liked this original girl, Coreen was something out of a movie.

Book Blurb:

Could her best friend be her best match?
The one thing Chloe McDaniels has always depended on is her friendship with Simon Ford. Even if it’s been tough thinking of the gorgeous guy who makes her heart flutter as just a friend But now, with their upcoming high school reunion dredging up memories of bullies and broken hearts, she needs him more than ever.
As Chloe plans to unveil her new-and-improved self, Simon creates a plan of his own.

Step One: Show her that love is worth the risk.

Step Two: Give her the happy-ever-after she deserves.

My Thoughts:

Chloe McDaniels and Simon Ford has been friends since teeny school. She was the overweight geek and he was nerd and handy. They fight, get back together but things never evolved to more than friendship.
Now it’s time for the high school reunion and Chloe started to be nervous. She was never popular but worst of all, she is still a bit overweight and the mean girls will definily see that she’s still single and doesn’t have a high job.
But Simon is so good friend that he joins her into a crazy plan for find the perfect date and lose some weight. But wish the would she herself the way he does it and decides to help.
I found this book was more a fun to read than really a romance, some moments Simon tried to help her but he was afraid to lose their friendship over a shot in a romance that may break everything between them, so it took a bit of time for me to truly like the characters. But the romance part could be a little bit faster.
