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.
Love love love A&J!
“More Than Friends” is author Monica Murphy’s newest young adult book, and the second in her “Friends” series. Again, I am left torn after completing this book (Monica, why do you keep doing this to me?). I really enjoyed “Just Friends,” the first book in the series, and I could not wait for this book to come out because I had hoped it would begin where the last book ended and answer all the lingering questions left from the cliffhanger ending. Do Ryan and Livvy stay together, can she and Em repair their friendship, where does her relationship with Dustin go? But, I should have known that Monica would not simply end the story. Instead, Monica leaves the ready in suspense regarding those characters’ lives and relationship and then re-introduces the reader to Amanda and Tuttle. Oh my…Amanda and Tuttle. I love them. I love their relationship, the complexity, the character development. It feels like high school all over again. And, just when I think we are getting somewhere, when I am completely and utterly hooked in the storyline….it ends. Boom, another cliffhanger. Luckily, I know another story is coming.
*I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this story and am posting an honest review.
I wish the author of whomever wrote the synopsis wrote that there is a book to read before you read this! It started off at a weird moment that left me very confused. The book itself was good! Had a lot of highs and lows. The characters were interesting, some I liked some I got annoyed with. I hated that it ended at such an awkward cliffhanger!!!!! I will read the next but I cannot take another cliffhanger.
I love this story. I read Just Friends first and loved every second of it. It was full of angst and drama. I loved reading about all the teenagers and the craziness that was going on in their lives. When it came to an end I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next installment. While waiting for More than Friends to come out I went and read One Night on Wattpad. Reading it gave me a better feel for all of the other characters. Where I had been invested in Emily, Dustin, Olivia and Ryan in book one, I was now wanting to know what was going to happen with 4-5 more characters.
In More than Friends we get Jordan and Amanda's story. Not their whole story, but we see who they really are and how they feel about one another. I devoured this book as quickly as the first one. I loved Jordan, right now he said the only one of the boys I can honestly say that about. I think I like Dustin and I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up hating Ryan. This series is one of those that read like a television series. I feel like Monica Murphy could write 5-6 more books in the series for us to get the full story on all of the characters. I'm really enjoying it and can't wait for the next one. There's still so much to figure out.
