"Drama, drama, drama - you know you love it! And Monica brings it in this super sexy and refreshing, un-put-down-able YA!!" - #1 NYT bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken

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.


  • Not suitable for teens

    By jm5lmh
    This book had way to much erotica for a teen audience. The author really targeted the wrong audience with the content, and shouldn’t be encouraging teen sex and drug use. It seems like the author is glorifying it, making it something “normal” for teens to be doing.

    This book has no story line. It went absolutely no where. It just ends in the middle of nothing without you wanting more.
  • Amazing!!!

  • A train wreck you can't look away from!

    By Bookbruin
    Actual Rating 3.5 stars Well, I said it before, but this was a train wreck that I just couldn't turn away from. There is A LOT of drama and aggravating behavior in this book. I wanted to slap, shake, and just scream at almost every character. The things that these "friends" do to and with each other was confusing and surprising, yet still plausible and believable. It's been a while since I was a teenager in high school, but I think it's a testament to the author's writing that she could create this chaotic and infuriating world, but still keep the reader interested and invested in these characters. The story itself though didn't really progress much, and seemed to just relive the same drama over and over again, without much forward movement. We do come to a cross roads at the end, but it ended so quickly that I thought I was missing pages! Ugh! I'm not a fan of cliffhangers! The cast of characters. Where to begin? I found almost everyone to be unlikeable at one point or another. It was hard being in Olivia's (Livvy) head. She does some truly frustrating things and I often wanted to scream at her to just be honest! So much of the drama and confusion could have been avoided if she just stopped playing games. Speaking of playing games, what the heck is going on the Emily (Em)? She is all over the place and is the actual plane crashing and burning in this book. She was the least likeable of all characters (and that's saying a lot, because there are some really terrible characters!) and I found nothing about her redeeming. I didn't really believe her friendship with Livvy at all. How could they be best friends? They were more like passive aggressive frenemies, only happy if they were better than the other. Dustin. Oh, Dustin. I wanted to like him since he's the only one who eventually was honest about the entire messed up situation and seemed to grow as a character through the book, but it was hard to not feel betrayed on behalf of Livvy. I guess I will never understand the teenage boy. Adding to the confusion is Ryan. I'm still not sure if he's just a total sleeze ball, or actually the only one being honest. All the relationships just seem so incestuous - everyone being with everyone, without regard to anyone else's feelings, or hiding their true feelings. The only character I liked was Amanda. She is still a typical teenage girl, with her own share of drama and angst, but she seems to be the most grounded of the bunch. I'm interested to see where things go with her and Tuttle (who also came across as a sleeze, but may actually be a good guy at heart?). We will have to see in book 2. Just a note: there is a lot of sex/sexual activity in this book. I guess I'm a little prudish, but this seemed to push the limits of being YA. I guess it was because the characters are teens, but I feel like this would have been better categorized as NA. Again though, the situations were plausible and I'm sure things like that do actually happen, which makes me terrified as a parent and happy I'm no longer a teenager! Overall, Just Friends was a compelling enough story to keep me interested, but the ending was too abrupt. I know I'm a glutton for punishment though and will be back for the next book when it comes out!
  • Full of drama

    By Boundless Book Reviews
    Just Friends, is full of drama. Exactly as you would expect being a teenager, in a small town. The book is based in Central California, which is where I'm from. Olivia aka Livy has been gone for the summer. And so many things have changed in the last few months. Even more changes with her best friends. With betrayal and heartbreak just about in every corner. It makes you wonder how Olivia really deals with all of it. The ending does end in a weird way. I really wanted to know what was going to happen with Olivia and Ryan! Gah. It was a well written story and it kept me interested till the end. Overall, I give this Four Boundless Stars....Lissa
