Publisher's Summary

Love changes people.
I’m the first to admit that I, Keaton Bridges, used to be an immature, entitled ass.
Okay, maybe I’m the second to admit it - after Roxy Carter.
That loudmouth.
But I’ve seen what true love has done for my friends, and I want it for myself.

Somehow, I’m the only single guy left.
Somehow, she’s the only single girl.
The only time Foxy Roxy hasn’t been a loudmouth?
That time we were making out at our best friends’ wedding.
And every time we’ve seen each other in the five years since then,
because she refuses to talk about it.

Well, she’s going to have to talk to me now.
It’s the dead of winter, and our six best friends were planning a getaway
at a Caribbean couples-only resort.
One of the couples had to drop out, and I refuse to be left out in the cold.
All Roxy and I have to do is pretend to be in love for one week so we can
spend some much-needed time with our favorite people.
And all I have to do is pretend I’m not dying to kiss her again.

Please note that this is a completely standalone story, but it includes crossover characters from Tonight You're Mine and Come Back to Bed.

Smart and sassy takes on humorously, heartwarming.

Smart and sassy takes on humorously, heartwarming. Loring digs deep into the insecurities of life, love and happily ever after with a fresh, comedic voice. The Plus Ones will have hearts cheering, lips smiling and senses on overload. Hamilton and Cartwright tickle the eardrums with an amazing delivery of what women what and why men tend to be a bit clueless. Keaton and Roxy take high maintenance to the next level of irritating with adorable results. Love means war and everybody wins in the most delightful way.

Frenemies to Lovers

Kaley Loring is just a master of RomComs. The character development is awesome. The banter is perfection. The story-line is familiar but done so well that doesn’t detract at all. This story will leave you with a big smile on your face. Get to know Keaton and Roxy you’ll be glad you did!

The narration is amazing!

***Foxy Roxy***

This was a quick, laugh out loud at times and swoon worthy read. I loved the banter the H and h shared. The group texts were hilarious with their group of friends. I could feel the tension transforming into love between the characters. I have read the prior books as well involving the supporting characters so it was nice to see them in this one also and get more of a further timeline on them.
The narrators did a great job. I really thought they brought the characters to life. I finished this with a big ole smile on my face with a hearts and swoon epilogue. Definitely recommend.

Fantastic Story & Narration🎧 Fun & Heartwarming!

This is a sweet and delightful story, it is a great slow burn frenemies to lovers type romance with a lot of charm and laughs. I enjoy Kayley Loring’s wonderful writing style, she creates stories that are captivating from start to end. Her characters are complex and well developed, they are likable and ones that are easy to relate to. I was happy to see Roxy get her own book, I adored her in “Tonight You’re Mine” her friend Aimee’s book, she is a hoot, full of sass and personality. Keaton also appeared in that book, I was not a fan of him then but he has come a long way personality wise and he redeems himself big time in this book. Roxy and Keaton share best friends and are godparents to their children. Roxy has avoided Keaton since they shared an intimate kiss five years earlier. The kiss was magical but she does not want to talk about it but Keaton is determined to. Their friends are leaving fora couple only vacation, when one of the couples back out they ask Roxy and Keaton to fill in and just pretend to be a couple. That is the plan and Roxy is determined to stick to it. I loved how this story plays out, it is well plotted with plenty of drama, humor, a bit of angst and a slow burn to a some hot romance. I loved these two together, they were like frick & frack, also love Keaton’s dog Jackpot and the sorry relationship he had with him. Kayley Loring, thank you for another fantastic story, the laughs and the emotional rollercoaster ride. #ROXTON4EVA

I listened to the Audible edition, MacKenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton are awesome narrators and voice artists. They bring the characters to life giving each their own voice and personality. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture and project the characters emotions into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a delight to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen🎧

Thank you @AudiobookObsession 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Oh Gosh!

I feel for Keaton and Roxy! The narrators really brought this story to life. I was smiling, laughing, crying, and feeling every emotion possible. Keaton and Roxy's determination to not be anything but not-friends, especially on Roxy's side was frustrating but you could hear and feel their undeniable connection and attraction. The relationship with their friends was also so cute to see.

*****

Karen. This book was fun, funny, and engaging as promised. The writing was very good and balanced, characters very relatable. This author was new to me, and what a pleasant surprise. This would be an enemies to lovers story, yet they were never really enemies and it didn't have that serious bite of just meanness for no reason often found in such stories. It was a story of growth, learning, compassion and understanding. It can be a standalone but looks as if the supporting characters in this story may already have stories of their own, though it's not listed as a series.
Narrators Mackenzie Cartwright & Teddy Hamilton did a fantastic job, awesome delivery, and laugh out loud moments. I was familiar with Teddy Hamilton and am a fan, but Mackenzie was also new to me. They made a great team for this book.

My new favorite enemies to lovers story

Enemies to lovers fans, meet your new favorite book! I loved it from the start. Roxy and Keaton are totally opposites. They can't stand each other. Well more Roxy can't stand him but he loves to push her buttons. They have to be in each others lives because they have mutual best friends and are god parents to the same boy. They end up going on a couples only vacation with their friends and pose as a couple. What is supposed to be fake starts to become so real. Then all they thought about each other is challenged. Did I mention they may have shared a kiss in the past? If you want hot steamy chemistry you have it in this book. I enjoyed it from the start to the end. While my heart was swooning, I was also cracking up at everyone's interactions. These narrators really were the perfect voices for these characters and brought them to life. I could totally picture them. Romance fans, make sure you check this one out.

Five giant stars!

This novel was so entertaining. Very witty banter, major chemistry between all the characters, and so many one-liners that had me in stitches. The text conversations and the game scenes were hilarious. I love rom coms that combine mature adults with low-angst story lines, relatable comedy and a sweet HEA. This one definitely delivered.

Narration was spot on. I love these two together. They do such a great job of bringing these characters to life and making you feel like you are a part of the bunch.

I loved hearing updates from past stories also. Come Back To Bed was equally as enjoyable and my on out complaint is that I wish I could have more from this group of friends. Highly recommended!

I Loved it!

Keaton and Roxy's story is so fun, sexy, and heartwarming! I loved it! Kayley Loring's writing is amazing! This story is a standalone, but it was fun to see again some crossover characters from Tonight You're Mine and Come Back to Bed. Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright did an outstanding job with the narration. I highly recommend it. Looking forward for more books written by Kayley Loring. #AudiobookObsession

#Roxton4eva

I really enjoyed listening to The Plus Ones. It’s hard to be the only single ones in your group of now married friends. Even harder when said married friends are going on a couples only vacation to an island in the Caribbean.

How hard can it be to fake a relationship with the guy you have been avoiding for the last five years?? Why should Roxy and Keaton be left behind, just because they do not have a plus one?? With a guy like Keaton, I would volunteer in a heartbeat 😉.

Roxy gives in and accompanies Keaton on vacation. To a place where they have to pretend to a couple. But what happens when you aren’t pretending anymore? Does the relationship carry on back to real life?

I just loved Keaton’s dog, Jackpot. I think I got the most laughs from those two!

Mackenzie and Teddy did a fabulous job bringing Roxy and Keaton’s characters to life!
