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.

If someone was to ask to me if I wanted to go back to high school for four years or get a bunch of root canals without the drugs, I'm picking the damn root canals!! This story had so much drama that I honestly couldn't stop reading but then there were parts that truly annoyed the hell out of me and had me thanking god that I'm not Seventeen anymore. 

Olivia is finally back after spending the summer with her dad and his new family. Missing out on everything over the summer, she's excited to get back to her two best friends Emily and Dustin. But returning home, she's in for a lot of changes. One best friend wants more than just a friendship and the other is turning into a frenemy. And that's just the begining because there's a new boy in town and he's about to set his sights on her. 




More drama,

This is what basically happened throughout the story and did I read I like a mad woman? You bet I did!! Ryan always gets what he wants and right now, that person is Olivia. But Olivia doesn't trust him and she already has her own love life drama with one of her best friends. But he's starting to wear her down and you know what they say about temptation. 

But will they give in, or will someone else force their hand? 

Like I said before, I enjoyed certain parts of this story and I really couldn't stop reading it. But...... the other parts? I wanted to smack, at least 95% of the characters. I knew they were young and immature at times but christ on a cracker!!they tested my patience. 

It took a long time to warm up to Ryan and Emily just gave me whiplash and made me stabby. With the exception of one character that I adored, this was an ok read for me. If you love high school drama, then this one has your name all over it.
