I absolutely adored it! Sweet and sexy, this friends-to-lovers romance is the perfect escape. I loved Mags and her fiercely loyal friend group, the food descriptions are TO DIE FOR (guaranteed to make you salivate) and the romance is sooo satisfying. Five stars!!’ Netgalley reviewer ?????

The Maid of Honour. Her college best friend. And a sexy doctor…

Maggie wants to find her Prince Charming, but all she’s finding are total frogs. As the Maid of Honour in both her upcoming best friends’ weddings, time is running out to find a date worthy of being a Plus One. Then she meets Blake at the gym, a dreamy, muscular heart surgeon who sets off butterflies in her stomach. Blake is confident, a fine-as hell-Georgetown grad with chocolate-brown eyes, thick lips and a dimpled smile. What more could she ask for?

Meanwhile, her college bestie, Garrett, throws salt in everyone’s game. At every swipe, with every date, he just has to point out red flags. When Maggie asks why he isn’t happy for her, he finally admits that he can’t be. Not when he’s not with her.

Now Maggie is stuck in the most confusing love triangle, forced to choose between the near-perfect guy she’s been waiting for and best friend who has never hurt her. She’s gone from thinking all the good ones are taken, to been torn between two great guys. If she doesn’t figure it out soon, she’ll lose them both…

An absolutely hilarious and steamy romantic comedy that will make you fall in love – and hungry along the way! Fans of Jasmine Guillory, Talia Hibbert and and Sara Desai won’t be able to put this one down

Taj started writing as a small child, enjoying the success of her first publications in elementary school. Since then, her dream has always been to become a professional writer. As a law student, she attempted her first novels and joined the Twitter writing community.
