Review of Switched by Cassie Mae


Ever since high school, Kayla has been crazy for gorgeous football player Talon. But before she could muster the courage to tell him, he became a hot item with her beautiful BFF, Reagan. The only person who knows Kayla’s secret is Wesley, Talon’s best bud—and he’s got it bad for Reagan. Now they’re all in college together, hanging out 24/7. For Kayla, seeing the two lovebirds together is absolutely unbearable. So Kayla and Wesley hatch a plot to drive them apart before Talon has a chance to give Reagan the Christmas gift she’s been waiting for.

Soon enough, the once happy couple is fighting. Reagan suddenly can’t get enough of Wesley’s goofy sense of humor, and Talon seems to be paying more attention to Kayla than a guy who’s “only a friend” ever should. But just when everything seems to be falling into place, Kayla and Wesley accidentally spend a night together and discover a hitch in their plan they never considered: that switching partners may not lead to a perfect ending after all.

My Review

4.5 Stars

Switched tells about the story of four friends but two of these friends are a couple and the other two both have an unrequited love for this couple. Kayla and Reagan are best friends but Kayla is in love with Reagan's boyfriend, Talon. Meanwhile, Wesley and Talon are best friends but Wesley is in love with Talon's girl friend, Reagan.

The two decided to plan about separating Talon and Reagan at the same time they would plan to get together with them. As the story goes on neither realize that in putting their motion to plan things get more awkward added to that the guilty factor and lastly they both realized that the person they are in love with is with each other.

It was a fun fun read although I wish it was a steamier romance at the same time. I couldn't get enough of Wesley and Kayla. Despite making fun of each other they are really great friends and from there, their feelings started growing especially when they decided to work together to separate their best friends. The funny thing is that I never saw the twist coming which was pretty hilariously. 

Overall, the book is just right. I really enjoyed reading it.
