Friends Like Us by Lauren Fox

Willa was best friends with Ben during high school. He had a secret crush on her. Fast forward to their mid-20s. Willa and Ben re-connect, Willa introduces Ben to her best friend, Jane. Ben and Jane fall in love. However, as the Prologue tells us, Willa and Jane are no longer friends. The rest of the book tells us what happened between them and Ben.

Okay, sounds like another chic-lit book? And it kinda is, but this one is different mostly because it is painful and crushing to read at times. I found it to be very engaging. The only distracting thing is that Willa likes to use a lot of puns, and this is a bit overdone. Overall though, this would make a satisfying read for a rainy winter afternoon.
