You know that pact you make with your childhood best friend of the opposite sex? The one where, if you’re both still single, lonely and hopeless at thirty, you’ll marry each other?
This is the story about what happens when you hit the big three-oh and have to make good on that pinky promise.
Personally, I think love, romance and all of that nonsense is a crock of, well, you know. And Reese Collins, the boy who used to put worms in my hair at backyard barbecues, knows that better than anyone.
But when he moves to the same city I’ve happily, and singly, inhabited for years, memories of oaths past resurface. Reese is like a dog with a bone; a really hot dog and that bone just happens to be me.
He won’t stop hounding me, and the crazy thing is, my frigid, traitorous heart is starting to cave. For my best friend.
It seems so far off, when you’re a kid playing Monopoly in your treehouse. But when that clock strikes midnight on your thirtieth birthday, and you’re standing alone in front of a grocery store-bought cupcake, a childhood deal to walk down the aisle doesn’t seem so silly anymore.

*I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
I’m such a sucker for these types of stories! I really loved Erin and Reese. Their friendship was so cute and well written, I enjoyed their chemistry and banter. I thought the story flowed really nicely, nothing was rushed which I loved.
Erin is a cynic when it come’s to love, mostly because of her parents divorcing when she was 25 and ruining her illusion that her parents had the perfect relationship, she also has a lot of anger towards her father because of this. Reese has loved Erin since they were teenagers and has always known she was the one for him, he was just waiting for her to ready.
The only slightly annoying thing was how closed off Erin was at times, her line of thinking was very out touch especially when it came to love and relationships, it was great to see her open up an see how great love could be and understand that it not suppose to be perfect.
Overall this was a nice easy read, with everything you would want from a romance novel.
My Rating: 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟

When she isn’t in a writing coma, Carrie spends time Netflix-binging with her husband, snuggling her newborn daughter, and chasing her Black Lab through the dog parks of New Jersey.
