He’s not perfect, but he’s all I want…
I’m your average girl at your average high school, trying to figure out my place in life. After catching my now ex-boyfriend messing around with my now ex-best friend, I’ve made some big changes. No more band, no more backstabbing friends and no more boring old life. Now I have new friends, a new job and new interests.
But there’s a certain someone who’s interested in me, and I don’t get it. Jordan Tuttle could have anyone he wants. He’s the most popular boy in school. Rich, gorgeous, smart and the star quarterback, he’s perfect. Yet he acts like he wants no one else but…me.
So despite my fears and doubt, I let him get close. Probably too close. I discover that he’s not so perfect after all, but it doesn’t matter. I’m falling for him, even though he runs so hot and cold. I know someday he’s going to break my heart.
And I’m going to let him.
*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
More Than Friends is book two in Monica Murphy’s Mature YA series Friends. And after reading the first book, I was prepared for the frustrating and eye rolling moments but in a good way. I was looking forward to Amanda and Jordan Tuttle’s story as I had liked them and felt they would be good together.
“I don’t notice anyone else. Just you.”
Their story was just as addictive as the first book in the series. Amanda and Jordan are cute together; their relationship is a bumpy one at times, but that’s to be expected when it comes to young love. I liked Amanda came across as one of the sensible one out of the group, however, at times she over thinks things especially when it came to Jordan. Speaking of Jordan, I like him a lot he has some issues, but I adored the way he felt about Amanda, and how she made him felt.
“Everything’s better as long as she’s part of it. And that’s the scariest part of all.”
The story ends on a cliffhanger; it’s not a shocking one, but one that lets you know that Amanda and Jordan road to happiness is far from over. I will be honest, I was a little annoyed at first as I wasn’t expecting it, but after reading Monica’s reason behind it, it made sense, and I’m looking forward to reading.
“The boy who is slowly but surely stealing my heart and making it his”
Oh, and someone that did surprise me was Olivia I like her in the last book and said she was sweet, but after reading this one I’m not so sure anymore as I saw a side of her that I didn’t like!
Overall just like the first book More Than Friends Monica’s tale of young love, boys, gossip, best friends, jealous friends, bitchiness and drama captures high school antics and teen turbulences at its best. So if you love the first this next installment won’t disappoint.
