Full Description

Jenny met Chance for the very first time when she was assigned as his partner in their Junior Communications class. But one clever lie to rescue a doomed assignment later, and the whole school was suddenly convinced that Little-Miss-Really-Likes-Having-As and the most scandalous heartbreaker in school have been best friends forever.

It’s amazing how quickly a lie can grow—especially when you really, really want it to be the truth. With Jenny, Chance can live the normal life he’s always kind of wanted. And with Chance, Jenny can have the exciting teen experiences that television has always promised her. And through it all, they hold on to the fact that they are “just friends.” But that might be the biggest lie of all.

Read Excerpt


"Hits the right notes. . . . a solid, mostly lighthearted offering for fans of the genre." —School Library Journal

"This book had me enraptured from the first few words. . . . A must-read for lovers of contemporary and romance." —Keystroke Blog

"This was such a fun read, I was rooting for Jenny & Chance til the very end. There were some serious subjects that popped up along the way (and Tiffany Pitcock wrote about those topics very well!). I can’t wait to put this book into readers' hands!" —Old Firehouse Books

"The story is great. It caught my attention and kept it. In fact, I stayed up all night to finish it!" —KFox, Swoon Reader

"I really loved this book. The characters were lovable and I found myself attached to them almost instantly. The dialogue was snappy, witty, and most importantly believable." —C. Thomas, Swoon Reader

"What truly in my opinion sets this apart from other best friends turn to lovers plots is that their entire relationship started with a lie and made it work through high school. Definitely something I will read, and read again." —Xanthia Strohl, Swoon Reader

I loved the way Pitcock turned a usually cliche story line into an interesting plot with twists and turns along the way. I normally don't read romance novels, but the unique beginning caught my eye and after the first chapter I was hooked. I've already read it twice and again I think this book is a lesson on how to turn a cliche into an amazing story.

What did you like about the story? Any suggestions on how the writer could improve it?

It's always fun to read stories about best friends falling in love. I like how Jenny and Chance have real history and fake history. It's funny when they make up stories about each other. Throughout the story, I was rooting for them to get together and admit their feelings for each other! Of course, miscommunication and wrong assumptions would get in the way. I'm happy to see a happy ending! I can't wait for this story to be published so I can read an edited and polished version of it!

I haven't finished this yet but really liked the fake story that started their friendship in the beginning. I'm not sure I'm really feeling the stakes for them yet though. What have they got to lose if college is going to separate them anyway? I still want them to get together just because the characters are cute but I think you could make the novel stronger if you made their stakes more clear.

OMG, I read this book from start to finish non stop! I fell absolutely in love with chance and Jenny. This book had me feeling every single emotion and I just could not get it enough of it! I wanted more, and more, AND MORE!! It was perfection at it's best and wonderfully written! I enjoyed this more than you know and you SERIOUSLY need to publish this with Smashwords if you haven't already! It ended so abruptly! I was like "wait! That can't be it!" And it was!! OMG you don't know how upset I was! I wanted it to be like the enrergizer bunny and keep going! Pleeeeease add epilogue or another book, idk just SOMETHING! I'm not ready to let go of these two!!! Your story had the right balance of everything and I could totally see the next book being called Take a Chance or something hahaha pleeeease!! I want more!!!
