He's not perfect, but he's all I want...

I’m your average girl at your average high school, trying to figure out my place in life. After catching my now ex-boyfriend messing around with my now ex-best friend, I’ve made some big changes. No more band, no more backstabbing friends and no more boring old life. Now I have new friends, a new job and new interests.

But there’s a certain someone who’s interested in me, and I don’t get it. Jordan Tuttle could have anyone he wants. He’s the most popular boy in school. Rich, gorgeous, smart and the star quarterback, he’s perfect. Yet he acts like he wants no one else but…me.

So despite my fears and doubt, I let him get close. Probably too close. I discover that he’s not so perfect after all, but it doesn’t matter. I’m falling for him, even though he runs so hot and cold. I know someday he’s going to break my heart.

And I’m going to let him.

Monica Murphy, what have you done to me!?! After reading JUST FRIENDS, the first book in the “Friends” series. I wanted to know more about Amanda Waters and this enigmatic guy, Jordan Tuttle. I must confess, I was kind of confused and disappointed because when I knew MORE THAN FRIENDS was the next book, I thought Liv and Ryan’s story continued as it wasn’t concluded at the end of JUST FRIENDS. Thankfully, we get to know more about them in this new story even though we have glimpses of them, I think it’s enough to finish off their story.

So let me tell you that I LOVE Mandy & Jordan’s story more! The feelings that they have for each other is true and the kind that will last forever. Even though they’re young and they don’t understand why they have these strong feelings for each other, they can’t deny what’s going on between them.

Amanda Winters is a regular girl, she doesn’t understand what Jordan sees in her. She’s not popular, she doesn’t dress fancy, she doesn’t have boobs, so why is Jordan so interested in her. She is leaving behind a bad relationship and she doesn’t want to get hurt again and Jordan Tuttle screams TROUBLE.

Jordan Tuttle has been interested in Amanda since kindergarten. He was memorized by her all this time. He doesn’t understand why Mandy can’t realize the effect she has on guys. But he knows he can’t love her the way she deserves. He can’t do relationships, he doesn’t want to hurt her, but he’s selfish. She is the only one that makes him happy, she makes him see life in a different way. But he’s sure he will hurt her at some point. He wants her regardless of it all.

This book has beautiful and lovely moments. There is this slow burn between Mandy and Tuttle that make you smile. I really fell for him, just like Mandy did. He’s good boyfriend material, but sadly he thinks he’s not. I’m not able to give this 5 stars just because I think they only need one book, not two. I fear two books will “ruin” their story for me. But I am intrigued to see where Monica takes their story and I can’t wait for more of them…I want a HEA!!
