"You are the sweetest torture I’ve ever known. And you… will never feel one tenth for me what I feel for you. And that, also, is perfect.”

This was my first Penny Reid book, but it will hardly be my last. Ten Trends to Seduce Your Best Friend is over 400 pages of witty, intelligent, self-deprecating, funny characters who take you by the hand and guide you through their whole journey.

Winnie and Byron are some of the most real characters I’ve found in a book. Winnie is a STEM teacher, and a sweetheart who always puts her discomfort and needs below those of others, and Byron is a genius author who has trouble with sensory overload. Honestly, I’ve never wanted a couple to give in to their desires so much! Byron has had feelings for Winnie for YEARS, but has been afraid to tell her, and Winnie has thought that Byron’s scowls and constant criticisms of her working so hard meant he despised her and her life choices. It was only after he agreed to help her with a personal project that she begins to rethink her assumptions about him.

I fell so hard for Byron Vissel — OM-Effing-God. He was so direct, so honest and there was something so sexy about the way he talked to Winnie when expressing how much he wanted her.

“If you were mine, I’d keep you handcuffed to my bed.”

If you don’t like particularly wordy books, give this one a miss. There were LOADS of internal dialogues and thought, lots of therapy-digging conversations and deep dives into past wounds that fill those 400+ pages. If you loved Ali Hazelwood’s The Love Hypothesis, this book has that same witty intelligence, along with some beautifully written steam.
