REVIEW: Switched by Cassie Mae


Ever since high school, Kayla has been crazy for gorgeous football player Talon. But before she could muster the courage to tell him, he became a hot item with her beautiful BFF, Reagan. The only person who knows Kayla’s secret is Wesley, Talon’s best bud—and he’s got it bad for Reagan. Now they’re all in college together, hanging out 24/7. For Kayla, seeing the two lovebirds together is absolutely unbearable. So Kayla and Wesley hatch a plot to drive them apart before Talon has a chance to give Reagan the Christmas gift she’s been waiting for.

Soon enough, the once happy couple is fighting. Reagan suddenly can’t get enough of Wesley’s goofy sense of humor, and Talon seems to be paying more attention to Kayla than a guy who’s “only a friend” ever should. But just when everything seems to be falling into place, Kayla and Wesley accidentally spend a night together and discover a hitch in their plan they never considered: that switching partners may not lead to a perfect ending after all.

I feel bittersweet about this story. It’s kind of like a train wreck – I couldn’t look away, despite Kayla making horrible decisions as every turn. I didn’t really even like Reagan or Talon much until the very end. I loved Wesley from page one though, even though he liked Reagan and I couldn’t figure out why.

The plot itself is pretty predictable, but still good. I really liked the ending. There was a “practice” scene that I enjoyed, but was sad when it was cut short. I did a mental head slap when Kayla messed that one up – hotness! Overall, it was a very sweet book in spite of the characters being a little dense in the head the majority of the time.

Bottom Line:

Don’t miss out on this emotional new adult romance that will take you through a range of emotions including joy and sadness. The relationships in the end make the book worth it all!
