Imagine lying in a hospital bed and the doctor who pulls the curtain back to treat you is the one who got away. Even if you never really had her in the first place. She’s not only your high school crush, she’s the ex-girlfriend of your ex-best friend. The one girl you’ve always wanted.
Here’s a step-by-step list to finally win her over…
Key to win #1: Try not to take offense that she snuck back into town without telling you—six months ago.
Key to win #2: Rekindle the friendship to ease the awkwardness. But… DO NOT enter the friend zone.
Key to win #3: Ignore the fact that she went speed dating the night before. Take it as good a sign—maybe she’s looking for a relationship.
Key to win #4: Attempt to keep the two of you out of the town gossip blog and away from your large family.
Make sure you don’t let this last one throw you off your mission.
Key to win #5: Don’t get deterred when you find out the past is about to repeat itself. Because the man she met at the speed dating night is your best buddy from work.
Just remember, you sat back and let her slip away once, you won’t do it a second time. Failure is not an option.
📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If you’ve been reading this series then you know who Kingston is and like me, have been waiting impatiently for his book. From book one, I have had a strong curiosity about Kingston. Why does he stay away so often? Why does he have such a dangerous job? Why is he a daredevil? All these questions and more kept me looking for his name thoughout the previous books. Each book gave us more but not enough so that by the time his book came I was so excited.
Kingston is one of nine siblings in the Bailey family. Despite him being away a lot, this family loves each other unconditionally and are beyond loyal to each other. The Baileys have a sad past and each sibling deals with that heartbreak in a different way.
Stella was always the love of his life. From childhood, he knew she was special and was heartbroken when she didn’t choose him. I won’t go into details but I will tell you their relationship turned angsty in high school and got more complicated into adulthood. Both Stella and Kingston are amazing characters. The authors did such an amazing job writing their story and engaging me so deeply I felt I was a part of it. I’m not going to say Kingston and Stella were perfect but they were perfect for each other. Of the two, Stella was the one with the most reservations. Their growth together was unstable and unsure. At times, I wanted to be on those pages and talk some sense into Stella.
As I said, I am not going to give away any spoilers. Because if you are like me then you waited a long time for this story. You should go into it just as I did; excited and eager. Winning My Best Friend’s Girl is one of my favorite books in the Bailey’s series. There is one last book to go and I am so excited for that one too. Not only because I want Sedona and Jameson’s story, but because I am hoping the authors will finally confirm who is the author of Buzz Wheel is. I have my suspicions but could be wrong, lol.
My recommendation is not only you read this book, but read the series from the beginning. I promise you won’t regret it. In addition, reading all the previous books will up your enjoyment a hundred times more.
This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
