Unrequited love, friends to more, i'm in love with my first crush, Love you so much it hurts, cute as a button, why can't you love me instead, butterflies in my tummy, didn't want it to ever end, so sweet it's loveable, heart in mouth love, It's always been you, ...

Note to anyone who decides they want their best friend’s significant: suck it up and deal, otherwise you end up like me – surrounded by your friends, but feeling 100% alone.

Switched is a fun little bit of YA goodness, all wrapped up in marshmallow fluff and cotton candy then sprinkled with sunshine. In other words, it’s a sweet, fun and easy read and once I allowed myself to just go with the flow I really enjoyed it.

Kayla’s in love with college freshmen football stud and superfine Talon, but
3.5 STARS.

Switched is the story of four friends in college who hang out together all the time. The only problem is, two of them are a couple and the other two are in love with the ones that are already taken. Even though they've tried to hide their feelings for over a year, it's becoming much more difficult for Wesley and Kayla to pretend their not in love with their best friend's significant other.

This book was hilarious and such a fun read. A story of four best friends Talon, Wesley, Kayla and Reagan.

Pretty much confusing for those two!! Hence what happens, they plan to separate Talon and Reagan and have them for themselves. Weslay and Kayla is out on mission!!!

What Kayla don't expect was to find Wesley cute and sexy in this mission.....What happens? Do they have a successful mission?

I just LOVE it when a book catches me unawares and delivers a satisfying story filled with fab fun, laughter, and the perfect amount of angst! From the very beginning, I was kept fully entertained and to be honest, the last time I laughed SO MUCH and SO HARD was back in July when I read Tara Sivec and Emma Chase’s books. So yeah, that says something.


She’s sweet, fun-loving, and full of life. A bit on the shy side, but still a wonderful friend to have! Except for one teensy p

This story was in a word....PERFECT!!!
I never thought when I started reading again, that I'd want to read about kids in HS or College.
YA didn't sound appealing to me, but, I'm glad I gave them a chance, because sometimes I come across a gem like "Switched".

This book had me smiling and floating on a cloud of happiness throughout.
I was transported back to my teenage years and it was a lovely journey.

The love square goes like this:
•Kayla likes her best friends boyfriend, Talon
•Wesley likes his best friends girlfriend, Reagan
•Talon and Reagan are a couple
•Kayla and Wesley are working together to break them apart

Sounds complicated and angsty but wasn't at all. The direction of the story was pretty clear and you knew how everything was going to work out. I loved how comfortable and easy it was for Wesley and Kayla to talk to each other

Now Kayla spends her days pining away for Talon while watching her best friend live out every one of her fantasies.

I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I can't even begin to finish this one. 20% in and I want to gouge my eyeballs out with a rusty grapefruit spoon. I realize this is YA, but I feel like I'm reading the diary of a prepubescent child. It's ridiculous.

The premise is this: Talon and Reagan are a couple. Kayla "loves" Talon. Wesley "loves" Reagan. Talon and Wesley are besties. Kayla and Reagan are besties. So Kayla and Wesley are the two WORST BFFs in the world and de

I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Overall, this was a very meh book for me. It's a decent romance, but the overall style grated on me. I didn't exactly hate Kayla as much as she annoyed the shit out of me. Maybe I would have liked Switched more if it had been told in someone else's POV. There is a lot of drama. The plot does become more subdued towards the end, but it also descends into such silliness that I stopped caring altogether. While the relationship dy

I have no clue why I had this ARC on my Kindle for so long without taking the plunge! Saw a friends review yesterday and decided it was time!

I loved this book. I loved all the characters (except for Ray). I have to say I was team Wes from the first chapter. I loved him. Not saying Talon was a bad guy, he seemed like a really nice well mannered guy. I just had a "thing" for Wes from the get go.

I thought the plot was very original. It was a love triangle but not really. My heart broke fo

5/5 stars

This wasn't a perfect read, with little things that I didn't like. But I really liked wesley and Kayla. I enjoyed their interactions and they were very cute. I also liked the little mini twist at the end and so based mostly on the happy feelings this book gave me, I'm just going to give it 5 stars!

I think Cassie Mae has an extra fan. I don't know how she pulls it off but I always end up liking her obnoxious heroines. I'll write a full review later!:)

Not what I'd call good, and once I decided these weren't really college-aged kids, it was easy enough to go with.Mindless and cutesie, I considered DNFing at 15%, but don't regret reading it. I certainly do not recommend it-unless you are 13-15.

Recommends it for: cute, humourous romance
This book still had Cassie Mae's writing style, great humour, and cute characters (some of them anyways), but the whole concept and the story just did not work for me.

So, to start out, there is a love-square. Reagan and Talon are together, but Reagan's best friend, Kayla, is also in love with Talon. And Talon's best friend, Wesley, is also in love with Reagan. So Kayla and Wesley get together and make a plan to break up Reagan and Talon and steal their best friends' SOs. Horrible people and wors

This was a very cute and funny read. Nothing angtsy, just a lot of fun.

Kayla and Wes are in a bit of an awkward situation. They both are in love with their best friends' boyfriend/girlfriend. Talon and Reagan have been dating for awhile and Kayla and Wes are miserable watching them be happy love birds. They decide to try and break them up, but nothing too malicious as they don't want to hurt their friends. They just want Reagan and Talon to fight and maybe break up on their own

To be honest at first I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about the main character. I mean she was in love with her best friend's boyfriend and wants to plot with his best friend, who is in love with her best friend, to break them up so they can each make the other realize who they are really in love with. Make sense? So of course I thought I wouldn't like either one of them. but man was I wrong. I really like Ka

Be careful what you wish for....

Switched is a story about two friends in love with their best friend’s partners. Together, they plan to break them up, only something happens that they both did not expect.

This storyline is not original however, it was a entertaining light summer read with engaging characters.

So the basic concept is Kayla is secretly in love with her bestfriend's boyfriend Talon. And Talon's bff Westley also happens to have the same problem. He's in love with Kayla's bestfriend! So, Kayla and Wesley team up in their misery and try to break up the happy couple.

I love that plot!!! It's what got me to read the book! Sold.

Kayla and Wes both have the same problem, they are in love with their best friend's significant other. Kayla has been drooling over Talon secretly for years. When watching Reagan hanging all over the man of her dreams becomes to much, Wes and Kayla hatch a crazy plan to subtly show them they are with the wrong person.
