Another FOUR STAR win from Jennifer Echols!
Book one was Tia and Will’s story. This book covers Tia’s BFF Harper and the quarterback of the football team, Brody.
Where Tia was the party girl, Harper is the introvert. She’s had a few boyfriends in her past. Well, three, and with reason. She’s never explored outside of a kiss. Never wanted anything more than going into art school and doing photography. Pretty much had her life planned out. Meanwhile, Brody is the experienced footballer. He parties. He has girls crushing on him. He’s even had a girlfriend or twenty…in a nontraditional sense.
Then the senior class got together and voted these two: The Perfect Couple That Never Was. And it slapped both of them in the face.
Harper began to question her life choices and current boyfriend. Brody thought, “Hell, why not?” And so it goes, they tried a date. Like all good teen stories, this is where the angst, love, should we/shouldn’t we sort of stories start up. And this was one of the better rides I’ve read since I was in middle school and reading high school drama stories.
I hate not being able to say more. I want to go all soapy drama chatter right now about Harper and how she handled this title and Brody and his ways…AAAAAAHHHHH!!!
Before I spoil anything, I will add that this story also had an “End before the end”. I would have been happy with a certain moment where it was all HEA-ish, but there is more…
And now that I’m thinking about it, could we get a book four for this series with a little bit of short stories to catch us up with the main characters so I’d know if they made it to prom and/or beyond?
I definitely recommend this book. I would read book one first, though I’m not entirely sure this book couldn’t stand alone with just a few crossover characters. I say no matter, pick it up and enjoy the ride!
