This book was good; I often just hate really long books… because it depends on the book, where I tend to get bored closer towards the end….that I want to get it over with already!
I see why it was perks of hating you; it was a way of saying I love you.
****So many spoilers in this review; I had to point out a lot of things in this book****
Smh; I felt like she (Eden) should’ve listened to everybody “Dylan, Conner, those girls, and even Jesssilyn… but no she wanted to be grown and regretted what happened at that bone fire… she was very naive and wasn’t smart enough to see what was around her and what Marshall really wanted when everybody kept telling her to remove herself from here….. I see why she didn’t want to date people when it came to going to the football games etc. with her friend Allie in the first book with Allie & Conner…. but I felt like that shouldn’t stop her for going to football games! But I guess it reminded her too much of Marshall…
I know one thing a lot of times when you young, you do things that you will regret… I felt like Allie may have been naive with trying to understand if Conner liked her, but Eden was clearly naive and didn’t know what was in front of her face…. until it was too late… I did felt bad for her, but she should’ve seen that coming even when she clearly could see Marshall didn’t take her on dates or anything or claim her as his woman…. even Dylan was there for her, and I am like girl listen to your brother best friend he knows what he talking about even your bother …. I am waiting on the time when (well to see) If she will tell Allie what happened that night at the bone fire. Because Conner actually told her to be careful, I wish that she would’ve used her fighting moves on Marshall or something just to tell him to no… you can always push a male off of you when you don’t want it; heck knees him in the balls can help so much!!!
That what made me happy (Dylan) whipping Marshall *** for doing what he did to Eden… it’s understandable why he never told anyone what happened plus I was also glad that he realized he wanted to be with her once what happened to him when he left for the army thing in Washington… but the good thing was his bother wasn’t mad about him being in love with his (Josh) sister (Eden) because he knew that both Eden and Dylan was in love with each other. I figure he had to know something especially if Dylan was hanging around Eden 24/7…. but I felt like she didn’t care to date anyone even what happened after Marshall…. was because she was in love with Dylan and didn’t want anyone else.
It was just so cliché. There was a whole genre in the book section on Amazon. Hundreds of books written about one thing- falling for your brother’s best friend. How unoriginal, right? It’s all over the place. But no one’s ever accused me of being a cliché. So, instead of crushing on Josh’s best friend, I decided to hate Dylan Coulter with all my heart. It was the perfect plan, really, since there was no way on this planet Dylan would ever notice me- that way. Why pine? Why deal with all the angst over every perfect girlfriend? They could have him, because I didn’t care. At. All.
Besides, Dylan made it easy to hate him. What was to love about a crooked smile? Or a husky, sexy voice? And that body? Perfectly sculpted with muscles not too lean or too bulky- how gross. Some girls might go for the perfectly tanned in winter without going to the tanning salon skin, but not me. It was unnatural. Uh-uh. No, sir. Who cared that his piercing green eyes practically glowed from behind the thickest, lushest lashes ever bestowed upon a mere mortal? I sure didn’t. Nope. Dylan Coulter could be choking on a hunk of his favorite beef jerky and I wouldn’t even pause in applying my makeup to perform the Heimlich. (Oh, alright. Fine. I would, but I wouldn’t want to.) Yep, hating Dylan was much, much easier than crushing on him.
Eden Crenshaw, best friend of Allie Brown from The Perks of Dating You, finally gets her story. If you loved Allie and Connor, you will be just as in love with Eden and Dylan.
