From the Publisher :

Two best friends. Eight pub quizzes. One shot at love… 

There are some people who seem like they have all the answers in life. Clarrie Midwinter isn’t one of them. 

At the age of 26, tomboy Clarrie is still struggling to become a ‘proper’ grown-up. She’s eternally strapped for cash, she hasn’t had a date in nearly a year and her attempts to quit smoking tend to take a nosedive after the second pint. Most annoyingly of all, her ladykiller best friend Simon just won’t stop asking her out. The only thing keeping her sane is her pub quiz team, the Mighty Morphin Flower Arrangers. 

But when Simon bets her a date their team will win the quiz league, Clarrie is forced to confront what she really wants out of life – and love. Is it finally time for her to grow up?

My Review :

Overall, the premise of this book was very promising. Best friends turning into more than that for me, is one of the sweetest types of love stories. The entire dynamic of this group of friends was enough to make me feel jealous, to be honest. I think that that is what really made the story. Clar and Si, being only a part of the group, made up a wide range of the story – however, without the personality traits of each of the other characters, this story would not have ended up where it did. The only downfall for me, was that I thought the parts of the book that discussed sex were a little played up. Those were really the only parts of the story for me that felt more fake than the rest. I would probably recommend this book.
