This friends-to-lovers spin on The Bachelor follows two childhood besties reuniting to spend the summer in L.A. after five years apart—but when they both get involved with a teen reality dating show, their lives take an unexpected turn for the unreal.

Sloane McKinney feels like a background character in her own life. But this summer will be different, because she’s spending it with her childhood best friend, Liam Daniels, in her dream city, Los Angeles. Sure, she’s surprised to find that Liam just happens to have had a Hot Guy glow-up since she last saw him, but so what? A little attraction won’t ruin her plans for their fun—and completely platonic—reunion.

What might, however, is that Liam has been roped into working for his producer dad’s new teen reality dating show, Aspen Woods’s Future Leading Lady. Liam figures Sloane can still hang out with him on set while he fetches coffee for the film crew, or whatever it is that production assistants do. Except it turns out the show is one contestant short . . . and Sloane is the perfect last-minute addition.

Once cameras are rolling, the whirlwind of dating teen heartthrob Aspen Woods feels way more real than Sloane expected, and Liam doesn’t exactly enjoy watching it all unfold. But it’s behind the scenes where the drama really picks up. . . .

Because wanting to kiss your best friend? That’s a plot twist neither Sloane nor Liam ever saw coming.

5- I love how the book has quotes from The Cove before the start of the chapter. 

6- The first interaction between Sloane and Aspen is hilarious because she was being snarky about him moments before.

9-Aspen wants Liam’s help to win Sloane over, and I’m so here for the drama.

12-Aspen’s Co-Star Riley coming into the scene when Slone and Aspen were in the school was fantastic to me because I love a little extra drama in my books.

14- While I can see why Sloane thinking about Liam is a bad thing, there’s also another side of me that loves that she’s thinking about Liam. 

15- I just loved the end of this story. The romance was sweet, and I loved the characters.
