I thought it would be a bit of fluff, easy listening, and a lot of it was. But it tricks you, and I'm not just talking about the middle surprise twist (you'll know what I'm talking about). By the end I was in nostalgia heaven, I laughed and cried throughout the book.
JJ, Phillips, and Danny's story is very captivating. It is not a new theme, but at the same time, very startling. The author keep us guessing about the love interest between the two boys/men, but I sort of knew which one from the beginning. They were both good catches, but one has an edge. This is not a love triangle per se, but it kind of is. It is not off putting though. There is just something about this story that makes it a magnificent romance.
Even though it was Danny who was constantly making out with JJ, she would always talk to Phyllips every night before going to bed. Their relationship was deep. The author also did a good job in not making this story boring. The pace was brisk but steady and I love that. It is also very helpful to take note of the date and timing. Like my title suggests, stories of friends to lovers abound, and in the hands of a good author, always a good read. It was more enjoyable for me because I listened to the audio version. The actor was awesome, did justice to the character of JJ. That's about all I would say. Read it and see.
I might recommend this if my friend were a younger reader.
I liked that it was a series of romances from one female character. However since I am used to more mature books this was somewhat of a let down.
It felt like a diary, as if she were thinking out loud.
Neither extreme nor anything else. It was right in the medium.
I think this is the perfect summer read. Quick and fairly light-hearted. The characters had cute personalities and the author did a good job moving throughout JJ's life and building her characters. Definitely written for a teen aged audience but can be enjoyed by those of all ages.
When the story started, I immediately thought I had downloaded a book for juveniles and was annoyed, thinking I would turn it off. But being a fan of YA fiction, I stuck with it and was very quickly pulled into the story as the author takes you through the life of the main character. So, she does grow up, facing some daunting challenges along the way. The story is charming and I must admit that I was sad to see it end.
This is a very good listen for teens 15 and up, as it deals with some sexuality issues that may not be suitable for younger teens.
As an adult reader, I can say I thoroughly enjoyed this story!
I enjoyed this book. It wasn't a page turner but it kept my attention especially because I was unsure of which boy she would choose. There are some twists and turns to keep it exciting. My only problem was that I didn't feel the electricity between her and one boy. Sort of wish she had chose the other one. Looking forward to reading That Wedding.
