A sexy and hilarious new novel from the bestselling author of Perfect Strangers.British and ballsy, Freya is a free-spirited Manhattan art dealer who thinks her live-in lawyer boyfriend, Michael, is about to propose. So what if he’s as straight-laced as she is fearless – who needs passion? But when she shows up for their romantic dinner in a thousand-dollar dress and a new hairstyle, he takes her hand, looks deeply into her eyes, and asks if they can be–just friends.Next thing she knows, Freya is paying a desperate visit to her long-time friend Jack, crashing his poker game and bunking temporarily with him. Tensions inevitably begin to rise. Freya’s caustic take on Candace, Jack’s luscious new girlfriend, is cramping his style. Besides, he has to finish writing the great American novel, and prove himself to his wealthy father. But he is willing to help Freya out (of his apartment, that is).Meanwhile, Freya’s biggest dilemma is that she needs a date (and fast) for the wedding of the century: her younger sister has nabbed the most eligible bachelor in London. Freya desperately wants someone to show off, and suddenly, Jack, in all his sexy blond gorgeousness, is starting to look more and more like wedding – if not exactly marriage – material.From New York to London, and all the urban hot spots, watering holes, and dating disaster grounds in between, Just Friends is a delightful, devilishly clever look at the enduring quest to find "the one."
