The book was kinda like the movie My Best Friend’s Wedding, it was a rom-com where Alice Murphy wanted Nash back by pretending to be in relationship with their other best friend Harley. Ah, love was so convoluted, so were the games played.

My first book by author Shann McPherson, the story had fun moments along with confusing ones where all of them didn’t know what they were doing. The story told me past of their lives together along with the present moments.

The writing kept to a fast pace and gave a free hand to Alice. The story told to me in her POV, I felt bad for Alice, knowing the love of her life was marrying someone else. But she played mean tricks on the would-be bride. I didn’t understand her reasons. Ah well, she did say she was unleashing her inner psycho.

Overall, love succeeded and things settled down. Alice got a few revelations. Happily Ever After was the theme song which played beautifully in the end. Friendship was the bond which held them together. Overall, a fun read.

Damn, love is so confusing!! And the games people play!!

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

When Alice ‘Murph’ Murphy’s beloved mother died, she promised to keep the family bakery in Graceville, Georgia afloat—even if it meant letting her high-school sweetheart, Nash Harris, go. For years, Murph has been biding her time, waiting for Nash to come back for her.

So when he strolls into Piece O’ Cake, Murph’s heart skips a beat—until he hands her an invitation to his wedding… There are painful secrets in both their pasts that only the two of them share, and Murph can’t bear the thought of Nash belonging to someone else.

There’s only one thing Murph can think of to do: fake a relationship with local bar owner and old friend Harley Shaw to remind Nash of what he’s losing, and win him back for good.

Nash is Murph’s best friend, a vivid reminder of her childhood and all the things she’s lost—but the more time Murph and Harley spend together, the more the lines between real and pretend begin to blur. Can Murph choose between the one who got away and the one who never left—and heal her aching heart?

    1. She was mean at some points. The bride was not at fault yet all her actions were to cause her harm. So a woman being mean to another woman who was innocent didn’t feel good to me
