Victoria is sticking to her five-year plan: get married, have children, and become the youngest vice president in town. Problem is, she’s four years in with no husband or kids in sight. She’s sure her coveted promotion is right around the corner, though. All she has to do is impress her boss by catching the person responsible for leaking confidential information.
Trent may be the head of the IT department, but he leaves himself plenty of time to have fun with no strings attached. Too bad his best friend Victoria is still following the ridiculous plan she created in college—she’s beautiful, smart, but far too uptight for his lifestyle. When Victoria takes the blame as the leak at the office, he’s determined to help clear her name and expose the person getting past his security measures.
Suddenly out of a job, Victoria is desperate to get her life back on track. When her childhood friend Trent—funny, good-looking, and completely wrong for her—suggests they team up to catch the culprit, Victoria jumps at the chance.
As the pair sorts through suspects, their mutual attraction becomes undeniable, and they find themselves struggling to remember that they’re just friends.
Sometimes life has other plans…
My Book Review:
The 5-Year Plan is an enjoyable friends to lovers romance story that follows childhood friends Victoria and Trent as they discover their love for each other, a love that was always right in front of them.
Author Cara Nelson weaves a lighthearted tale that easily draws the reader into Victoria and Trent's story with a wonderful mixture of drama, humor, and romance.
When Victoria's 5-year plan goes awry after she loses her job, she turns to Trent for help in finding the person who leaked confidential company information that cost her job. Working closely to search for the culprit leads Victoria and Trent to discover a mutual attraction for each other, one that proves to be undeniable. Can their longtime friendship turn into a romantic relationship?
This was such a fun story to read, I really enjoyed following Victoria and Trent's discovering their love for each other. The story will keep you in stitches with the witty dialogue and humorous interactions, while the drama of the investigation and the growing realization of their romantic feelings will keep the reader turning the pages to see how it will turn out for Victoria and Trent. You can't help but cheer them on as they finally give their love a chance to grow.
The 5-Year Plan is a delightful romance story that will make you believe in friends to lovers relationships, and will leave a smile on your face.
