You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits.
There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it's windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He's the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He's pretty much irresistible.
Equally crush worthy is Phillip. Adorable, sweet Phillip, who I have known since birth. Phillip has dark hair, a perfect smile, brown eyes, and the sexiest voice I have ever heard. He's the boy I talk to every night before I go to sleep. The boy who rescues me, the boy who can read my mind, the boy who is always there for me, the boy who tries to keep me out of trouble, the boy who irritatingly keeps getting hotter, and whose strong arms always seem to find their way around me. And when he gives me that grin, I can never say no.
One boy will give me my very first kiss.
One boy will teach me to make out.
One boy will take me to prom.
And finally, one boy will ask me to marry him.
They will both be my best friends.
But only one of them will be the boy I fall in love with.
Only one of them is That Boy.

Great story and great narration. The voice is exactly what I picture the character to sound like. I will definitely listen to this again in the future.
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.
I loved the story. I loved the characters. I wasn't sure which way it was going to go. I started it in the morning and I couldn't stop listening, I finished it the same day. I could not stand J.J. or Jayden. She was immature throughout the entire story. I couldn't decide which boy I would choose. I was so glad to find out that there is a second book.
