Brittany's Review

I had no idea what this book was going to be about when I began reading except what the title stated, so I immediately knew that there was going to be a break up involved, but wow. I didn't expect this book to be as good as it was. It was such a great read and really pulled me in. I did not want to put it down at all. I wanted to keep reading and find out what would happen next. If you love some drama in a book, then this book is for you. There is lots of drama between friends, lovers, exes, etc.
Anne Watson's life is normal like most people. She goes to work, has a great boyfriend, and some amazing friends in her life. That is until she goes home one evening from work to walk in on her boyfriend Ryan cheating.
Anne take to her best friend Brian as well as her other friends Ben, Max, and George. Yes, these are all men. Anne doesn't really have female friends and these men have been her friends since college. The catch to this is, two of her friends are in love with her. This all comes out through the story. Annie (the name she goes by) decided to win back Ryan in the beginning but somewhere along the way it turns into pure revenge. Things get pretty out of hand between the two and she soon learns she has feelings that are much deeper than she ever thought possible for one of her friends.
I have to say, there is a little love triangle within this story. Of course, I always seem to want the women with the guy that doesn't get her. Yet in this story, I don't know which man I want Annie to choose because you grow to love each one for different reasons. Yes I love these men in this story. They each have different personalities and are Amazing!!
Overall, I really loved this book. I can't wait for the sequel to come out!! At the end of the book it all seems like a happy ending but I know things are going to get real complicated and really fast. I would highly recommend this book to others. It's a great read!!!

I give this book 4 great Stars

Excerpt 

 “Oh, look!” I shouted, pointing ahead.  Ben looked ahead at the large park in front of us. “Do you have any idea where we are?” I whispered. He shook his head. I laughed so hard that I snorted. “Come on; let’s go see what trouble we can get into over there.”  
We walked through the park for a while before I complained about my feet hurting from my high heels. In front of me, I saw a fountain, so I let go of Ben’s arm, running towards the monument. 
I yanked off my heels, tossing them and my pocketbook onto the ground before climbing into the fountain.
“What are you doing?” he shouted in exasperation.  
“Cooling off,” I explained as I began running around in a circle. When I made my way around to him, I splashed him with water. “Come on in.” 
He glanced down at his now wet clothes, then up at me.   
“That’s it. You’re going to get it now.” I shrieked as I began running in a circle, wading through the water, making sure that I didn’t slip on the coins littering the bottom of the fountain. I heard splashing behind me, so I knew he was gaining on me. I turned around, kicking water, spraying him from head to toe. He wiped the water off his face, before splashing me with water, his strong arms being able to spray me with more water that I could ever hit him with in one try.  
My hair and polka-dotted dress were soaked, and I wrung my hair out before shrieking and running away from him.   
“Watch out! I’m gonna getcha!” he shouted as we ran around the fountain. On one trip around, I was looking behind me and smashed right into his chest. When I looked up, I realized he had figured out to run in the opposite direction. He flashed me a cocky grin as his hands grabbed my arms to keep me from falling over as I laughed loudly. I placed my hands on his chest to steady myself more as the world began to spin, feeling the wet cotton beneath my fingertips, his chest heaving. I glanced up into his whiskey-colored eyes, who were staring down at me with an emotion I couldn’t place. They slowly made their way down my face, stopping on my lips before his brows pulled together.  He took a step backwards, and then hopped out of the fountain.   

The world was still spinning, though, so I stumbled backwards and held on to the statue in the middle of the fountain, throwing my arms around the marble. I wrapped my right leg around the base, while my head rested against cool tile as the water sprayed down onto my body. I licked a drop of water hanging from my upper lip and when I opened my eyes I found Ben looking at me with that same expression I had never seen on his face before.  
“Why did you get out?” I asked.   
“Someone needs to watch out for the cops while you frolic around like a faerie.”   
With my head still against the cool stone, I said, “What can I say? Every once in a while, a girl needs to frolic.”  I could feel rather than see his smile. “In that case, keep on frolicking, Princess, just be ready to run when I tell you to.” 
I yawned while enjoying the feeling of the water pouring down on my overheated, alcohol flushed face. “God broke the mold when he made you, Ben.” I rolled my stiff neck to listen to it crack. “He really outdid himself that day.” 
Chuckling, he pulled his cigarettes out of his back pocket. He opened them, and groaned in annoyance before sliding them back into his jeans.   
“Too wet to smoke? What a shame.” Part of me thought that I was being a brat for mocking him.  
He threw me a half-dirty glare, though he smirked. “Just get your dancing out now. I still need to get some food in you.”  
“Yes, food does sound good,” I admitted.   
“Let me guess. You skipped dinner.” I heard the tone of disapproval in his voice.  
“Maybe.” 
He made a tsking noise, and I didn’t bother to defend myself. He was right; I had been stupid.   
“Come on. Let’s get you some food.” I released the marble statue, walking towards him. I stumbled to get out of the fountain, and he caught me before I fell. He shook his head. “You’re such a mess.” 
I glanced down at my shoes and grimaced. My feet were still killing me.   
“Do I have to wear them?”  
He rolled his eyes. “You can hop on my back while I hail a cab.” 

I smiled widely at the idea and he turned around while I picked up my shoes and pocketbook. I wrapped my arms around his neck and jumped up. He grabbed the back of my knees as he starting jogging out of the park.
