REVIEW – MORE THAN FRIENDS (Friends #2) by Monica Murphy



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.

Amanda Winters is a 17 yr. old high school senior who recently made a lot of changes to her life. After catching her ex cheating, she started hanging out with a new group of friends. She quit the band, has a new job & has recently shared some amazing kisses with the most popular, hottest guy in school. Jordan Tuttle is the guy every girl wants. He’s rich, gorgeous, smart & the star quarterback. He’s a mystery to most. Never lets anyone too close & is mostly known for throwing killer parties & casual hookups.

When Jordan lets Mandy know he’s interested in something more with her, she questions his sincerity. He’s Jordan Tuttle & they live such different lives. He pursues her hard & she continues to resist. She thinks they aren’t a good match, & are just a bad idea. Jordan wants to be in her life & be with her. He’s had a crush on her for years & she challenges him & makes him smile. He could have anyone he wants, & he’s on a mission to make Mandy his girl. He’s a distraction she doesn’t need. She should be focused on school, her job, and her future, not Jordan Tuttle, but he’s slowly getting to her, & working his way into her heart. As they start to go public as a couple, Mandy has to face her own insecurities & go after what she wants.

-Commitment is a dirty word in my vocabulary. I never wanted it before. Yet I want it with Amanda.

-I’d give her every piece of me. All she has to do is say the word and I’m hers.

I really loved Jordan Tuttle!!! In the last book, he was more secretive & we didn’t know much about him. We learn more about his life & family and find out how crazy he is about Mandy. I loved how he acted like nobody existed but her. He was all in & totally swoony. Jordan decides he wants a relationship with Mandy & will do whatever it takes to convince her what they have is real and he won’t hurt her. At the same time, Mandy tries to show Jordan she’s someone he can count on & trust as well. I really enjoyed this story & love Tuttle & Mandy as a couple! :))
