Summary: Kezia’s been harboring feelings for Magdalena for what feels like an eternity. She’s made peace with that. But when her happily committed best friend is suddenly single, that peace is disturbed. Especially when Magdalena comes to Kezia asking for a huge, unreasonable favor. Kezia doesn’t know how to say no, even though she knows she should. Will she be able to maintain her composure while helping the broken-hearted Magdalena? Or will pretending to have the girl of her dreams only lead to a broken heart of her own?

Review: Kezia has been in love with her best friend, Magdalena, for ages. Her brother knows it but Magda doesn’t. When Magda’s girlfriend dumps her right before the holidays, and just before her sister’s wedding, she reaches out to Kezia to her her fake girlfriend in front of her family.
Set in Chicago, I was totally on Magda’s side about the snow!
Kezia knows this is going to be hard for her to pretend to be a girlfriend and then go back to just being a friend, but she does it anyway. I adored her brother, Zeke, who looks out for his little sister. Magdalena, I think she was just a little oblivious and it took a minute to see what was in front of her face.
This is the beginning of their story, HFN you might say, but since they started as great friends I have no doubt this is going to be a successful pairing.
