REVIEW ➞ Winning My Best Friend’s Girl by Piper Rayne


Imagine lying in a hospital bed and the doctor who pulls the curtain back to treat you is the one who got away. Even if you never really had her in the first place. She’s not only your high school crush, she’s the ex-girlfriend of your ex-best friend. The one girl you’ve always wanted.

Here’s a step-by-step list to finally win her over…

Key to win #1: Try not to take offense that she snuck back into town without telling you—six months ago.
Key to win #2: Rekindle the friendship to ease the awkwardness. But… DO NOT enter the friend zone.
Key to win #3: Ignore the fact that she went speed dating the night before. Take it as good a sign—maybe she’s looking for a relationship.
Key to win #4: Attempt to keep the two of you out of the town gossip blog and away from your large family.

Make sure you don’t let this last one throw you off your mission.

Key to win #5: Don’t get deterred when you find out the past is about to repeat itself. Because the man she met at the speed dating night is your best buddy from work.

Just remember, you sat back and let her slip away once, you won’t do it a second time. Failure is not an option.

All anyone sees is a guy who fell in love with his best friend’s girlfriend, but we’re so much more than that.


It’s time to head back to Lake Starlight and this time it’s Kingston’s story. If you’ve been following from the beginning, he is kind of a mystery, there hasn’t been much about him in the previous books, which means I have been dying to know more about him. Kingston and Stella’s story is an angsty slow burn that will tug on all your heartstrings.

Kingston is a firefighter, a smoke jumper and just an overall adrenaline junkie. He loves the thrill. He risks his life every single day. It’s who he is and he has always been that way. Stella is the exact opposite. She plays it safe. She doesn’t put herself in danger. However, from the moment they met as kids Kingston and Stella bonded. They had a connection and became best friends. Over the years, things shifted and eventually their friendship fell apart. Now, Stella is back but will they be able to take the chance on each other?

I loved getting glimpses of a young Kingston and Stella. I loved seeing their friendship start and how it progressed throughout the years and to see where they are now. They have so much chemistry. They have a bond. I love how easy Stella fights with all the other Bailey’s. They accept her as one of their own. Stella and Kingston’s relationship took me on an emotional journey that at times frustrated me, but I loved every single moment of it.

Winning My Best Friend’s Girl had all the typical Bailey family love, plenty of Grandma Dori, emotions, angst and laughs. A MUST READ and I can’t wait to see what is in store next for the Bailey family.
