Formerly published in 2013 under the title “A Kiss by Design,” this book has been extensively revised from the original.

When Emily finds an engagement ring in her best friend Dylan’s backpack, she panics and tries to stop him from marrying a girl he barely knows. When his brother asks for help planning a surprise proposal, Dylan knows it’s time to bury his feelings and finally let Emily go. When Emily accidentally puts them in a compromising position, will Dylan reveal his long-buried feelings, or will Emily realize she’s dating the wrong brother?


Gosh! Where do I begin with my review?
I liked that it was a friends first ( sort of like my husband and me) to the romance part.
I think the second thing I like about this story was that Dylan and Emily took their time in getting to know each other and even though they were friends since kids I liked this deeper side of them.
I really loves how the author shows us Dylan's side of things too. His thoughts, feelings, and crazy side too. She does a wonderful job in showing us in how a man might feel about a woman he likes.
I couldn't stand Zach and his selfish ways. These two brothers remind me of my husband and his brother both as different as night and day.
Zach kind of made me mad at him in his obnoxious ways.
I ended up snickering at some of the scenes in this book. They were kinda cute in a way.
Emily really is my best friend in many ways. Her personality sort of fits mine. I think we'd get along jest fine! I approve of Dylan wholeheartedly.
4 stars. I recommend.
My thanks for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.
