“For Macallan and Levi, it was friends at first sight. Everyone says guys and girls can’t be just friends, but these two are. They hang out after school, share tons of inside jokes, their families are super close, and Levi even starts dating one of Macallan’s friends. They are platonic and happy that way.
Eventually they realize they’re best friends — which wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t keep getting in each other’s way. Guys won’t ask Macallan out because they think she’s with Levi, and Levi spends too much time joking around with Macallan, and maybe not enough time with his date. They can’t help but wonder . . . are they more than friends or are they better off without making it even more complicated?
From romantic comedy superstar Elizabeth Eulberg comes a fresh, fun examination of a question for the ages: Can guys and girls ever really be just friends? Or are they always one fight away from not speaking again — and one kiss away from true love?”
The book was cute, and written ok, but it wasn’t without its flaws. It was a quick read, but I found it kind of tedious and found myself just waiting for it to be over.
I usually enjoy multiple POV’s (yay for a male POV, we don’t get those very often.) So that was wonderful. Except, the dialogue between Macallan Levi in between chapters kept throwing me off kilter. I think I like the concept of it, but for whatever reason, the execution just didn’t click well with me.
Another thing that drove me crazy, was all the misunderstandings. I know they happen and they happen more often that they should, but the drama after drama after drama drove me psycho.
At that, the drama might have been worth it if they payoff was good.
But once they finally get their act together and stop being idiots…
The book ends. It just ends. I get that some relationships take a lot of effort to get started, but the real trick to relationships, is making them work after you start them. Relationships don’t just all of the sudden happen, and then happily ever after.
Effort has to go in to maintain them afterwards.
So in that manner, I felt like the story was flat, and the ending was weak. Perhaps even a little overly juvenile (like…..not in the YA Juvenile sense..)
Ultimately I wouldn’t recommend this one. I’m not even sure what I would recommend in its place. A book coming out next year (October 2016) would be a great alternative..but unfortunately that’s still a long ways away.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, this has not affected my opinion or review of this book in any way.
