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.
This was a very angsty mature young adult read from Monica Murphy.
The story is about Olivia and her best friends Dustin and Emily. What follows is is a huge twisted teenage drama of a book. There is Olivia and Emily's relationship which seems more strained recently and then their is Dustin, he wants to be more than friends. They have fooled around but Olivia is not sure if she wants to ruin their friendship. Then you have new boy Ryan who Olivia can't help but notice.
Therefore you get a very twisted and tangled web of friendship with lies being discovered and really testing their friendship. As I said there is lots of angst in this book and for me not all the characters are likably but that the way I think Monica Murphy wanted it written. This book is a real mixed bag of the story with lots of drama and I am looking forward to the next story and seeing where it goes and what happens in those friendships.
