That time I had the brilliant idea to ask my good friend for lessons in seduction…
Awkward? Maybe. But how else is a good girl going to find out if she likes being naughty? I might be sweet as cherry pie, but I'm also bold and damn curious. And Gabe is charming, trustworthy, aces at seduction (or so I hear) and—bonus!— willing to give me lessons. But to guarantee it won’t ruin our friendship, I have some specific requirements for his instruction. I want these classes to be hypothetical more than hands-on. So what if he’s hella sexy? I can handle that, no problem.


I have it bad for Arden. She's bright, brilliant, insanely fun, and I want to take her home and spend all night together—and then spend the day with her, too. When she asks for my help, I see my chance to win her sweet heart by showing her how much fun we can have getting spicy. Trouble is, she has a different idea of what “bedroom exploration” should mean. Now I’m going to have to get really clever to win her over.

Good thing I know exactly how to upend her best laid plans.

Best Laid Plans is hands down my favorite. This book is funny, sensual and has a heart of gold. It brought the friends-to-lovers trope to a brand new level.”

fabulously sweet, sexy, funny and hot friends to lovers story.” - Melissa at Booked All Night

I’m most definitely a planner, but I never planned to be a good girl.
Honestly, I didn’t even think twice about good girls versus naughty ones. I always figured with sex and love, you could have it all.
That’s what we’re taught as women, right?
You can be prim and proper during the day and wild and daring at night. Or the other way around. Whatever floats your banana boat.
But somehow over the years, I inadvertently landed on the “nice” half of the divide, so squarely in the good-girl camp I’m practically the poster child of oh-so-sweet, and I can’t seem to get a crack at the other side.
Only, I keep peeking over the fence, peering, wondering.
What if the grass is greener? What if I’m missing out on something better in the bedroom and, by extension, something better in life and love?
There’s only one way to find out.
The trouble is, when it comes time to woman up and make a request for what I want to try at the ice cream stand of sexual flavors and favors, I wind up with so much more than I bargained for.
More than I’m ready for…
And with so much more to lose than I ever expected.
Guess I’m about to learn if it’s better to be naughty or to be nice.

“This is my favorite Blakely book to date. I loved absolutely EVERYTHING about this story!!”
-LittleJen on Goodreads
The first thing I like about this book are the characters. Arden, our heroine, is a planner. She likes things in order, she owns a bookstore and she's one of the nicest ladies in town. In fact, her being nice was the reason that one of her boyfriends broke up with her. She was "too vanilla". It was Gabe that lend a shoulder to cry on (like literally) the second it happened. It started a beautiful friendship between the two.
Between bowling and playing Words with Friends occasionally, they were constant in each other's life. She was her go-to person. But something else was lacking. She decided it was time for her to dive into a new relationship, but first she needs to shed off her "vanilla-ness", and the perfect candidate to help her - none other than her best buddy, Gabe.
Gabe is a lady's man. But there was no other lady he wanted than the lady who is constant in his life. But he's wary of risking the friendship at first. When he finally had the guts to give in, Arden gave him the biggest surprise of his life offering him to tutor her with regards to sex. Her list was like heaven for him and it almost matches his fantasies! Of course, there are stipulations. How can he possibly say no?
Gabe and Arden's relationship with the secondary characters (i.e. friends and families) is a nice touch as well. I love how Gabe is with his Pops, and Arden with her girls. 
There is indeed a thin line between friendship and love, and I always believe friendship is the strongest foundation of a relationship. I like how their relationship came about. The sex-ed was a little funny, and off-the-charts steamy. Chemistry is already there between the two and all you have to do is to wait when it will finally self-combust, and when it did, it was just so powerful.
