More than Friends
by Monica Murphy
Release Date: November 14th, 2016
Genre: Young Adult Romance
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.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of More than Friends by Monica Murphy. A huge thank you to the author for the free copy and for making my day!
I was first introduced to Amanda and Tuttle (I kept misreading it as turtle for some reason) in the novella, One Night. Although I did not manage to read Just Friends, I was immediately enthralled by the endless possibilities of their relationship and More Than Friends was a gift from the Gods, namely Monica Murphy. I have been a fan of Murphy's works since I first read her Second Chances series and there's just something about her writing that captured my attention. What I did not expect was to be completely absorbed by Tuttle and Amanda's story as if I'm a part of them.
I could totally understand what Tuttle sees in Amanda and why he had been smitten by her since he was twelve. It was not just her good looks, Amanda is such a great character that I don't know if anyone else in the series can live up to her (I wasn't really a big fan of Livvy, unfortunately). I like that Amanda is strong-minded and believes in taking a stand for herself, also she's a great friend who is always considerate of the people she cared about. Tuttle, on the other hand, is a lonely soul hiding behind his cool, playboy demeanor. It is absolutely beautiful to see how Amanda and Tuttle complement each other.
Between the heated passion, hidden desires and heartbreaking arguments, More than Friends is filled with teenage angst and drama, the kind that gets you more worked out than a 30 minutes cardio and yet you can't help but fall in love.
PS. This book ends with a cliffhanger ending, although Cliffhangers should be permanently banned, banished and exiled, this just means there's more to Tuttle and Amanda! A book couple that I'm not ready to give up just yet!
