Best Friends Don’t Kiss

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Oh, yes they do!

by Max Monroe

No one does romantic comedy better than the queens of this genre, Max Monroe. A MUST READ! And there isn’t a better time to read a RomCom than February, right?

If you are like me, I hate listening to Christmas music when out of season, and the same goes for holiday romances, but please don’t let that keep you from this delightful romance. 

The authors describe this story as a combo of my favorite RomCom movies, When Harry Met Sally, The Wedding Date, and The Holiday PLUS some hilarious flair from our favorite Billionaires!


I’ve read almost all of Max Monroe’s books, and I wish someone would make a movie out of these delicious stories. I swear it will become a classic RomCom film. 

PS. The Wedding Date is a 2005 American romantic comedy film starring Debra Messing, Dermot Mulroney, and Amy Adams. Based on the 2002 novel Asking for Trouble by Elizabeth Young – which shamefully I haven’t read, but it’s on my TBR!

Synopsis: Best friends since college, Luke and Ava now live in the same apartment building. When Ava gets an invitation to her fifteenth high school reunion, she gets herself into a bind when she says she will bring her boyfriend. A boyfriend that Ava doesn’t have and must find STAT. After several hilarious failed dates, she finally convinces Luke to step in to play the best boyfriend ever. Except, the more they pretend, the more everything begins to feel real.

A realistic progression from friends to lovers is sincere. From the beginning, I felt their connection, and I appreciated the sexual tension that came as their relationship turns more romantic, especially while sharing a room in her childhood home. 

There’s a little bit of angst but nothing over the top for these two, which I found refreshing. It adds a little bit of conflict as the couple gets to the happily ever after. And that epilogue was perfect. I loved it!

I have to mention the secondary characters. I adored Ava’s family and love how Monroe incorporates characters from previous books because they add so much fun to the stories.
