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 expected a lot from this book because I've read a lot of good reviews from readers who've gotten an e-arc of this book earlier than me. 

The book is about four friends and their complicated love lives. Reagan and Talon are together. Kayla, Reagan's best friend, is in love with Talon. And Wesley, Talon's best friend, is in love with Reagan.
Kayla and Wesley hatches a plan to separate Reagan and Talon. But they didn't expect a plot twist in their story.

Switched was a fun read. It temporarily distracted me from fantasy books I've been reading a lot lately. This book pulled me back to reality and I really loved it.

Kayla is a fun MC. I do little commentaries in my head too. Like what she's doing. She's really fun to read, sometimes she's annoying but her comments in everything makes you laugh. Or at least I did. I love how Kayla is, when she's around Wesley. Their bickering always makes me smile stupidly. Haha.
Wesley is my favorite character in this book. He is not perfect. And I love him for having flaws. Seriously, who loves perfect guys? They're boring. Wesley is funny and he's a musician.  Come on! Guys+guitar=HOT!!
Talon and Reagan are good supporting characters.  Again, they are not perfect. I didn't really get to read a bromance scene between Talon and Wesley. Or a deep moment that cements their relationship as best friends. So their friendship isn't really believable. I think the reason Wesley sticks around is because he likes Reagan.
Reagan is a cruel best friend to Kayla. But it's Reagan's way of caring for her. Kayla often describes her as an aggressive person. And being aggressive can come of as being cruel a lot of times. Reagan made Kayla realize who she really wants and that's really nice of her, even though she chose the evil way of doing  it.

It's fun and light, and it's everything I expected it to be.

★★★★★

I recommend it to everyone who wants to feel butterflies in their stomach and heartache at the same time. And who doesn't mind a lot of plot twists.
