Ten Trends to Seduce Your Bestfriend, an all-new enemies to lovers romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is now live!

Winnifred Gobaldi and Byron Visser are not best friends.

Yes, they’ve known each other for years, but they’re not even friendly. Winnie considers them more like casual, distant acquaintances who find each other barely tolerable, especially when he’s being condescending (which is all the time).

The truth is, they have nothing in common. She’s a public school science teacher with stars in her eyes, and he’s a pretentious, joyless double PhD turned world-famous bestselling fiction author. She loves sharing her passion for promulgating women in STEM careers and building community via social media, and he eschews all socialization, virtual or otherwise. She’s looking for a side hustle to help pay down a mountain of student debt, and his financial portfolio is the stuff of fiduciary wet dreams. So why are they faking a #bestfriend relationship for millions of online spectators?

When a simple case of tit-for-tat trends between nonfriends leads to a wholly unexpected kind of pretend, nothing is simple. Sometimes, it takes a public audience to reveal the truth of private feelings, and rarely—very rarely—you should believe what you see online.

Ten Trends to Seduce Your Bestfriend is a full-length, complete standalone, adult contemporary romantic comedy.

My Review...

I have yet to read a Penny Reid story that I haven’t fallen hard for. This newest story is no exception.

The main characters are fresh, funny, and had me riveted to the page. 

This is the story of Bryon and Winnie. 

Winnie is a giver, she is always going above and beyond to make sure everyone in her orbit are happy, sometimes to the detriment of her own happiness. She is adorkable and sweet, she fights hard to further the future of women and STEM.

Byron is an enigma. He is terse, blunt, and obscenely honest, which can make him seem arrogant and cruel. But there is a method to his madness and it was absolutely lovely to see how Winnie became the “Bryon Whisperer”.

I absolutely adored the slow burn of their relationship, the inner dialogue of both Winnie and Byron was fantastic. 

Even as a vintage gal, I was able to relate to these two and am guilty of looking up some of those challenges on TikTok. 

This standalone story is absolutely brilliant, I could feel these characters and respect the heck out of Ms. Reid for the research and study she did to make Winnie and Bryon as authentic as possible! 

This is going on my “Best Reads of 2022” list!
