The plan was simple.
Fake a relationship, date for a few weeks to make their crushes jealous, then stage a breakup.

Little did Gabby and Quinn know the cost could be their friendship.

They knew the game they were playing was dangerous, yet lived under the false illusion that their bond was strong enough to withstand anything. But as they found themselves longing to surre

I’ve enjoyed reading For All The Wrong Readons, a friends to lovers story.

Gabrielle and Quinn have been friends for years when they decide to fake a loving relationship in order to get the attention of their crush, her ex boyfriend and his housemate.
Will their plan to make them jealous be a success? Or will they lose everything putting their hearts on the line?

Rachael Brownell wrote this story exceptionally well, she made it believable and the reader can’t stop to cheer for the main character

Quinn and Gabrielle both have a problem and they might just be each other’s solution. Pretending that they are a couple should be easy as they know each other so well, what could possibly go wrong?

I really enjoyed the pacing of this story as Quinn and Gabrielle try to maneuver the new parameters of their relationship. Full of emotion there were a few obstacles along the way there was no doubting they belonged together.

Gabrielle Miller thought her boyfriend Gavin was about to propose to her when he did the unthinkable and broke up with her. Yet no matter how much he humiliated her she knows that she would do anything to get him back.
Quinn Turner has a crush on his roommate Kara but he is getting tired of her constantly bringing different guys home. He thinks the best way for her to see what she’s missing with him is for him to get into his own relationship and make her jealous.

"This is my first book by Rachel Brownell and I really enjoyed it. The only reason why I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I prefer a bit more heat in my books than this one had, so just know that it is MY personal preference. Quinn & Gabby's story is extremely well written with an unputdownable storyline. I was beyond hooked from beginning to the end. I have read this trope plenty of times before, but am scratching my head as to whether I have ever read that both main characters are wan ...more

From the first chapter of this story I was sucked in. I absolutely loved everything about it. From friends to more? Gabby and Quinn's story was a sweet one. They are both very passionate characters. I was wondering if the book would end the way I seen in my mind. Their friendship was really put to the test. And frankly I was worried about the ending.

The one thing I love most about Rachael Brownell's writing would be feeling. The way she writes the story flows so well and just pulls me into the s

Oh my word! This book is perfect! I loved every single thing about it. From the very first page, I was immediately sucked into the story and I couldn't put this book down until I finished the book. The characters are relatable, the storyline is engaging and beautifully written and the romance is top notch. For All The Wrong Reasons is one of my favourite books of the year and I highly recommend checking it out! ...more

Instead of getting the marriage proposal Gabby was expecting from her boyfriend, Gavin, he shocks her by breaking up with her in a nice restaurant. Quinn wants to win over his roommate, Kara. So Quinn proposes a plan. The plan seemed simple enough. Quinn and Gabby would pretend to be a couple, fake it for a little while. They would make Gavin and Kara jealous, get what they wanted, then break things off and go back to being friends. As friends, they don't want to ruin their relationship. But as ...more

Box of tissues?? Anyone??

I am not sure if I need a box of tissues or a rolled up newspaper to beat the author or all the emotional things she has put me through. Although I will be the first person to tell you that emotions make the best books.

Whether it's the cry, laughing, or yelling you will be doing as you read this book. You will fall hopelessly in love with the characters. There will be time you want to jump in the book and slug the characters for being mean, or maybe just a simple slap fo

This was such a great book and even though I was pretty sure I knew how it was going to turn out I loved the ride!

I felt so bad for Gabrielle when Gavin broke up with her and I loved her reaction to it. I was proud of her for initially standing her ground but then I was worried when she was ready to do whatever she could to get Gavin back even though it looked like he was already moving on.

I could understand why Quinn wanted Kara to see what she was missing but at the same time I couldn’t see

Oh. My. Goodness!

Rachael does is again. There is so much hurt and heartache in this book. Friendship bonds are put to the test. What will come of this situation? I was questioning it all the way to the end!
