MORE THAN FRIENDS Kendrick Place #1 Jody Holford - Release Blitz with my review

What happens when the best friend you’re in love with 
asks you to love him back, but only for pretend? 

Kendrick Place #1
Jody Holford
Releasing Dec 5th, 2016
Entangled BLISS

Owen Burnett planned on a quiet, easygoing Christmas, hanging out with his best friend and neighbor, Gabby Michaelson. So when his mom pressures him to come home for the holidays, he tells a little white lie…that he’s spending the holidays with his new girlfriend. But when his family shows up unexpectedly, Owen pulls the best friend card and asks Gabby to play his fake girlfriend.

Gabby’s been hopelessly in love with her best friend Owen for what feels like forever, but playing his "fake" girlfriend when the entire boisterous Burnett clan visits is easier said than done. The more she tries to deny the attraction between them, the more obvious their chemistry becomes. But even though she's not the only one feeling it, putting their friendship on the line is a risk she can’t take.


Pretending to be the fake girlfriend to your best friend, who you are secretly in love with for days at Christmas when his family comes to visit, what could possibly go wrong? Unfortunately, quite a bit.

This is a sweet story of geeky Owen, (who I fell a little bit in love with) and sweet Gabby who feels so much, pretending to be a couple to keep up the pretense of Owen's lie. Gabby loves Owen but has pretty much resigned herself to the fact that Owen will never see her as she sees him. All this pretending is really blurring the lines and showing Gabby how it could be if Owen would love her more than a friend.

There's eye opening moments for them and when Owen thinks he's doing the right thing, he ends up hurting her. Will he be able to make Gabby understand what he meant by what he did? Will she be able to forgive him for the pain that he caused? 

Jody Holford is a multi-published author who has a soft spot for happily ever after. So much so, she tattooed the words on her arm. She’s a mom and a wife, a friend, sister, daughter, teacher, and book-lover. Her stories have a little bit of heat and a lot of heart. And maybe, some swoon-worthy moments that will make you smile.
