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.

So be prepared to be annoyed, aggravated and wanting to bitch-slap these three best friends.  However, you are also going to find yourself so sucked into their lives that you want to know what happens next with them.

Olivia, Emily and Dustin are all best friends.  Olivia goes away every summer to stay with her father.  However, this time around when she returns, things are slightly different.  Em  Dustin are now hanging with the popular crowd with Em getting high and drunk constantly and fooling around with the new guy, Ryan.  And Dustin is acting a little more jealous because he and Olivia did some things before she left to stay with her father. 

Then the fallout- Olivia finds out she’s not the only one who had been fooling around with Dustin.  And while Ryan is messing around with Em, he’s obnoxiously flirting with Olivia.  Yea – it’s just one huge effing disaster waiting to blow up.

Then along comes Amanda who befriends Olivia.  Amanda is probably my favorite character in this book because she just doesn’t play games.  Everyone else just drives me nuts.  But I can walk away.  It’s like watching a damn car accident.  You know it’s not going to end well, but you just can’t stop watching everything play out.

I may not care for some of these characters but this book had me glued to my seat, waiting to see what happens next.  I am going to need lots of wine to get through this next book!
