About the Book

A new spin on the classic smart-girl-and-bad-boy setup, this witty contemporary romance shows how easily a friendship – even one built on an elaborate lie – can become so much more.

Jenny meets Chance for the very first time when she is assigned as his partner in their Junior Oral Communications class. But after they rescue a doomed assignment with one clever lie, the whole school is suddenly convinced that Little-Miss-Really-Likes-Having-A’s and the most scandalous heartbreaker in school have been best friends forever. It’s amazing how quickly a lie can grow―especially when you really, really want it to be the truth.

With Jenny, Chance can live the normal life he’s always kind of wanted. And with Chance, Jenny can have the exciting teen experiences that TV shows and movies have always promised. Through it all, they hold on to the fact that they are “just friends.” But that might be the biggest lie of all.

Debut author Tiffany Pitcock delivers a spot-on depiction of first love and the high school rumor mill in Just Friends, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads.

My Review

Rating: ★★★★

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of the book provided by Xpresso Book Tours and the author. Thank you for the reviewing opportunity! 

High school romance cravings fixed!

Yes, I'm a huge softy for pretty covers and friends-to-lovers stories, so what if I finished the book in one sitting? It was addictive! 

Before I dive into my reasons for loving the story, I just wanted to get the bad ones out because it's like an annoying fly looming over my chest. SO here goes! 

As much as I adored Jenny and Chance, I didn't give it a five-stars rating because I never once viewed Chance as a bad boy, and his so-called player reputation wasn't as convincing as the story led on to be. I also cringed a little at the turning point of the story (which could easily be avoided with something as simple as communication) so I was frustrated at so many things that Jenny and Chance missed out on just because of a few assumptions. But hey, they are in high school and behaving like actual teenagers. 

Now that I got that out of the way, I really bought into the whole fake friends story. I loved how effortless Jenny and Chance can make up stories of their childhood past and their chemistry was genuine and believable. I adore every moment they spent together and it made everything just fade away! Although it took them a few tumbles to find their way to each other, their story is one that will put a smile on your face. 

About the Author

23. Writer. Reader. Sarcastic.

I was born and raised in Arkansas, which isn’t terribly exciting. I’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember. I used to sit in class and write stories in my notebooks, thinking that everyone did. It turns out, everyone didn’t. I love writing because it means I’m putting my thoughts, feelings, and soul out there for someone else to read – for someone else to feel. The fact that someone can read my words, and empathize with my characters – characters that wouldn’t exist with out me, that I created from my mind – is such a wonderful concept to me. I could happily write for the rest of my life as long as there was one person out there who was affected by my words.
