Review : More Than Friends: The Apartments

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

More Than Friends by Jody Holford

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.
Owen and Gabby are best friends and its the holidays which means meddling parents. As a way to hold off his parents from bothering him about his love life Owen comes up with a plan that Gabby could pretend to be his girlfriend. They already know everything there is to know about eachother. They just have to pretend to be in love with eachother. Easy enough right?

I really enjoyed this book, after reading many books about insta love (which is something I really do dislike in books) I loved that these two main characters were friends for some times before things got complicated. I loved their relationship even when they had to fake things for Owen family I loved the chemistry between the two. I loved that there was a bit of drama and a bit of mystery. There was plenty in this book to keep the readers interested. This book was a really enjoyable read, I finished it in about a day because I had a hard time putting it down. I just loved that sweet relationship between the two.
He rolled to his side, once again adjusting his arm so he could prop himself up on his elbow. His other hand moved to Gabby’s waist, stroking the skin that had been taunting him for the past two nights. He could see the shine of her eyes in the dark. He felt her against him, everywhere. Her scent curled inside him. She was part of him and he hadn’t taken any time to realize what that actually meant.
“Owen?” Her voice was a whisper.
“There isn’t anything about you I would change.” He wanted to say more. He wanted to say the words that were tumbling inside his brain and his heart, words he’d held back or buried. But right in that moment, he wanted something more.
Bringing his hand to her face, he smoothed his thumb across her lips. He heard, felt, her breath quicken as he inched closer, until looking into her eyes began to consume him and he had to let his own close. His mouth touched hers—not for show or because anyone expected it, but because he needed to kiss her, needed to trace her lips with his tongue and memorize the taste of her. Of Gabby.
Her hand moved up his chest, around the back of his neck and into his hair where her fingers gripped, tightened, like she was afraid he’d get away. There was absolutely nowhere he’d rather be. Using his tongue and his teeth along the column of her neck as he’d wanted to earlier, his fingers drifted down, lowering the strap of her tank top. He nipped at her jaw, trailing kisses back up to her ear, telling her she was perfect.
She was everything. She was his.

How the hell could he have missed this? And how would they ever go back to the way it had been before?
