Just Friends by Monica Murphy
Release Date: September 13th, 2016
Genre: New Adult Romance
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.
Review by Paula:
Olivia, Emily and Dustin are best friends and then Ryan and Amanda is around too. So much drama in this book it’s crazy! Lies,cheating. I can’t stand Emily I just wanna pull her hair out and scream at her she’s one selfish, ignorant, stuck up person! Then Dustin needs to realize why Olivia can’t trust him anymore! Olivia needs to wake up and tell everyone to go shove it! Olivia needs to be strong and stick with Amanda she’s the only one I can trust. Ryan is just a player and is just having fun he doesn’t really care about anything in my opinion. Then Amanda her and Olivia have a lot in common seems there very gullible and need to find their strength to be happy and find real true friends. This story felt like a soap opera to me. I talked about the main characters because I don’t wanna give out spoilers. It’s a really good book that I could see turn out to be a teenage movie or tv show! Can’t wait to read the next book to see what happens. 4 stars
