Joy is in love with Malcolm.
But Malcolm really likes Summer.
Summer is in love with love.
And Fox is Summer’s ex-boyfriend.
Thirty, flirty, and asexual Joy is secretly in love with her best friend Malcolm, but she’s never been brave enough to say so. When he unexpectedly announces that he's met the love of his life—and no, it's not Joy—she's heartbroken. Malcolm invites her on a weekend getaway, and Joy decides it’s her last chance to show him exactly what he’s overlooking. But maybe Joy is the one missing something…or someone…and his name is Fox.
Fox sees a kindred spirit in Joy—and decides to help her. He proposes they pretend to fall for each other on the weekend trip to make Malcolm jealous. But spending time with Fox shows Joy what it’s like to not be the third wheel, and there’s no mistaking the way he makes her feel. Could Fox be the romantic partner she’s always deserved?

CLAIRE KANN BACK AT IT AGAIN WITH AN INCREDIBLE ASEXUAL ROMANTIC COMEDY. It’s Claire Kann! What did you expect? A flop? YOU THOUGHT WRONG. Claire Kann will never disappoint me. Are you asexual? Do you love romance books? You should buy this one. Keep it on your shelf. In hardcover and paperback. Will 100% cheer you up after a rough day. Five stars.

Edited to add: This is probably like, the most useless review I have ever written in my life. Everything’s been rough lately! I really liked this book. I recommend it. You should read it. I love Claire Kann and everything and anything she chooses to do. Bookshop link here.
