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.
Just Friends by Monica Murphy transported me back in time to high school. This story is intense, drama filled with a ton of angst, excitement, betrayal, secrets, and a whole lot more! My emotions were all over the place, constantly changing from all the twists and turns within the story.
Ms. Murphy created the chaos of high school perfectly with characters you will love and hate. The storyline is excellent as well as the writing. I was constantly questioning everything that happened to Olivia, switching between team Ryan and team Dustin many times.
Anyone who loves an exciting, drama filled romance will cherish this book! I do recommend grabbing a drink, buckling your seat belts, and prepare to be taken on an incredible ride.
