Owen Burnett planned on a quiet, easygoing Christmas, hanging out with his best friend and neighbor, Gabby Michaelson. So when his mom pressures him to come home for the holidays, he tells a little white lie…that he’s spending the holidays with his new girlfriend. But when his family shows up unexpectedly, Owen pulls the best friend card and asks Gabby to play his fake girlfriend.
Gabby’s been hopelessly in love with her best friend Owen for what feels like forever, but playing his "fake" girlfriend when the entire boisterous Burnett clan visits is easier said than done. The more she tries to deny the attraction between them, the more obvious their chemistry becomes. But even though she's not the only one feeling it, putting their friendship on the line is a risk she can’t take.

More Than Friends was a pretty good read for me. For all my friends that are always asking for clean romance recommendations this book is clean. This book was a sweet lighthearted holiday read. Owen was a cute geek, that loved order, peacefulness, and neatness. Gabby was this fun loving, messy artist. They had this adorable friendship that was clearly more. I love the friends to lovers trope. I really enjoyed Owen figuring out his feelings for Gabby. For someone so smart he was a little slow on the draw lol. I liked Owen's family and I really liked Wyatt the grumpy neighbor who didn't say much but really intrigued me. If you are looking for a fun,quick Christmas romance I would recommend this book to you. Especially if you love friends to lovers stories.
