How to Kiss Your Best Friend, Jenny Proctor

How to Kiss Your Best Friend Review

Kate and Brody have been best friends since they were nine years old.  There’s only one problem: Brody is in love with her and Kate’s oblivious.

This sweet romantic comedy starts out with Brody trying his best to pretend he’s not in love with Kate which is a lot harder to do when she’s living three doors down. Ms. Proctor did a good job of showing the friendship though I must admit I didn’t think Kate was a good friend.

Brody was awesome. He was supportive, caring, and willing to put her needs above his. Kate was selfish and insecure only thinking about her needs, yet expecting Brody to drop everything for her the minute she showed up in town even after ignoring him for four years.

I was glad to see that in the end she matured a bit and realized that relationships required two people doing their part.

Readers will be reminded that sometimes home is not a place, it’s a person. They will also be reminded that it’s necessary to do the hard things even when it scares us.

I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher through NetGalley; a positive review was not required.

About How to Kiss Your Best Friend

He’s a hot high school chemistry teacher living in a small town. She’s a globetrotting journalist running from her past. They used to be best friends. Then one kiss changes everything.

Kate Fletcher is my kryptonite.

She’s also my best friend. Former best friend?

I’m not sure what you call it when we grew up attached at the hip and then she left Silver Creek (and me) to travel the world.

The important thing is: Kate is back. (Temporarily.)

And I’m still in love with her. (Permanently.)

But something is different now. The attraction doesn’t seem one-sided. I don’t think I’m imagining the heat in Kate’s eyes or the chemistry crackling between us.

But will that be enough to keep Kate here, when, for as long as I can remember, all she’s wanted to do is leave?

I’m determined to give her a reason to stay. Family. Connection. Roots. And me. I’ll have to start with sparks and fire, but if I take this step, there’s no turning back to simple friendship. And if she doesn’t feel the same way, I might lose her again—this time for good.

How to Kiss Your Best Friend is a full-length sweet romantic comedy, with all the crackling chemistry you want in a closed-door romance and sizzling kisses only.
