Just Friends AMAZON.jpg


It’s the end of summer. Just before I start senior year with my two best friends in the whole world. Dustin and Emily are everything to me. We’ve been inseparable since middle school, and when we’re together, nothing can go wrong.

But things aren’t always what they seem. Em’s turned into a drunken mess who parties too much. Dustin and I have hooked up a few times―and now he’s ready to take our relationship to the next level. Yet I’m not sure I want things to change. I’m scared if I take it any further with Dustin, our friendship will be ruined forever. Then there’s Ryan. The new guy. He’s hot. He flirts way too much. And Em has totally set her sights on him.

So when my best friend betrays me in the worst possible way, guess who’s there to help me pick up the pieces of my broken heart? Ryan. But he’s so confusing. Annoying. Sweet. Sexy. I want to trust him, yet he makes it so hard. What I really want is for everything to go back to the way it was before.

Before I found out that best friends make the worst kind of enemies.

5 Stars!

This book was so friggin addicting! I mean these teens are CRAZY. Aside from Amanda, I don’t think I’d want any one of them as a friend — not even Olivia, yet I couldn’t help but be completely invested in her story.

There’s so much angst, backstabbing, betrayal, and heartbreak in this book and I couldn’t. Stop. Reading. This story felt very real to me because in reality, teenage years are actually a very confusing time—especially when dealing with love and relationships — and Monica Murphy does a fantastic job of portraying a confused teen.

Not gonna lie, Emily drove me straight up CRAZY. I honestly didn’t want her with either Ryan or Dustin. As for Dustin, I still have mixed feelings about him. Even Ryan has me questioning if I should even be #TeamRyan, hahaha. I’m so just SO CONFUSED. Monica makes it tough to trust any of these characters and I both love and hate it!

The ending had me begging for more! I have no clue what’s going to happen with the whole Ryan/Olivia/Dustin triangle, but I’m so excited to find out. Bring on Amanda and Tuttle!!


P.S. DIBS on Tuttle 😉
