More Than Friends by Jody Holford
RECEIVED AN ADVANCE READER COPY IN EXCHANGE FOR A FAIR REVIEW
Owen Burnett planned on a quiet, easygoing Christmas, hanging out with his best friend and neighbor, Gabby Michaelson. So when his mom pressures him to come home for the holidays, he tells a little white lie…that he’s spending the holidays with his new girlfriend. But when his family shows up unexpectedly, Owen pulls the best friend card and asks Gabby to play his fake girlfriend.
Gabby’s been hopelessly in love with her best friend Owen for what feels like forever, but playing his “fake” girlfriend when the entire boisterous Burnett clan visits is easier said than done. The more she tries to deny the attraction between them, the more obvious their chemistry becomes. But even though she’s not the only one feeling it, putting their friendship on the line is a risk she can’t take.
I’m a mom and wife first and many things after. I’m a best friend and a regular friend. A daughter, sister, auntie, a teacher, and maybe even… a writer. I am a book lover, a shopper, a pajama-wearer, movie-watcher, worrier, over-thinker, and a wanna-be-good-Samaritan. I’m a Gemini, a nervous talker, and an emotional writer. I am represented by Frances Black of Literary Counsel.
The story begins with this beautiful opening quote, it really sets the scene for the reader
My soul whispers to me that it wishes to intertwine with yours so when the tides of life come crashing we are one– inseparable
– Mustafa Tattan
Throughout the book Jody Holford includes some incredible moving quotes which adds to the story. They help the reader to really understand the characters well character.
More Than Friends is a delightful read with lovable characters. That has us cheering for a Happily Ever After, while the narrative of the storyline is entertaining and witty.
More Than Friends is the first instalment of a Kendrick Place , it’s about a group of friends that live in the same apartment building. They’re all have very different temperaments and those differences are what draw them together.
Owen Burnett and Gabby Michaelson story….
They say opposites attract!
Best friends from the start. Gabby has always been Owen’s go to person and when a little white lie comes back to bite him in the butt! The first person he goes to is Gabby.
They couldn’t be more different; Gabby embarrasses her creative side and through that she creates some breathtakingly beautiful art while Owen seeks solace and quiet time, he’s a loner by heart.
A little white lie…..
Owen’s little white lie to his family has him for the first time seeing Gabby as more than a chum, best buddy and more of the woman that she is.
How will Gabby survive being Owen’s fake girlfriend when all she wishes for christmas is to be his girlfriend?
Gabby has loved Owen from the very first moment, a little awkward as they both had partners at the time but she had come to terms with the fact that all she would ever have is true friendship with Owen.
On the wall beside Gabby’s favourite room was a placard with a quote from Leonardo Da Vinci that read
