Be there when Greyson and Cal finally meet face-to-face because. 
Sparks. Will. Fly. 

~Book Review~
5 Stars

Greyson Keller tells a little white lie. To appease her matchmaking sorority sisters her spur of the moment fib regarding her relationship status doesn’t seem like such a big deal. Till her imaginary boyfriend shows up at her front door.

Cal Thompson didn’t know he was in a relationship. Till he read it on Twitter. But this little misunderstanding actually serves to bring two available people together in this cute, sweet, and sexy romantic tale.
“…a story of our friendship, bond, and love.”
What I adored (absolutely adored) about this book—
There is no unnecessary drama. No meddling OW or OM.  Just a cute story of boy meets girl, engages in flirty correspondence with girl, becomes friends with girl, falls in love with girl and vice versa.   Greyson is outgoing, confident, and spunky. (No whiney, wishy-washy insecure females here.) Cal is a down-to-earth, average guy. (He’s not a douchebag or a manwhore or thinks he’s god’s gift to women.) Both main characters are single people not looking for sex or love but find it when and where they least expect it. They aren’t broken or damaged or hauling around baggage from previous relationships.  They are just normal people. I wish more authors wrote swoon worthy romance stories like this.
“You know why I’m here.”
Told via Grey and Cal’s alternating first person point of view, the story is light-hearted and fun told in many sections via emails, texts, and social media posts. It was so refreshing to read a new adult romance simply about meeting someone you connect with and falling in love.
“You’re not my dirty little secret. You’re my guilty pleasure.”

They really make a cute couple and their first kiss was hotter than a lot of love scenes I’ve read. When they finally hook up, it definitely oozed steam because there was actually a build up…a huge build up of their friendship, chemistry, and feelings for one another.

While it’s listed as novella length, the characters and the romance are fully developed. That’s not to say I didn’t close the story craving more of Cal and Grey cause I certainly did, and I’d have preferred the epilogue to be told by them. So I’d definitely read another novella about their future if it was like this one. (Hint, hint to the author)
