This is my first Waiting on Wednesday for 2014! If you’re not familiar with this weekly event, Waiting on Wednesday is special time set aside to highlight an upcoming new release that we’re especially excited for.
So, this week I’m excited for Elizabeth Eulberg’s newest romance Better Off Friends, which, I must say, has a super cute cover!
For Macallan and Levi, it was friends at first sight. Everyone says guys and girls can’t be just friends, but these two are. They hang out after school, share tons of inside jokes, their families are super close, and Levi even starts dating one of Macallan’s friends. They are platonic and happy that way.
Eventually they realize they’re best friends — which wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t keep getting in each other’s way. Guys won’t ask Macallan out because they think she’s with Levi, and Levi spends too much time joking around with Macallan, and maybe not enough time with his date. They can’t help but wonder . . . are they more than friends or are they better off without making it even more complicated? Can guys and girls ever really be just friends? Or are they always one fight away from not speaking again — and one kiss away from true love?
Summaries online describe Better Off Friends as a YA version of When Harry Met Sally, which sounds pretty darn good to me! Seriously, the more and more I think about this book, the more I get excited about it. It sounds like it’ll be the perfect contemporary romantic comedy that I’ll be in the mood for around Valentine’s Day, which is good timing because Better Off Friends is scheduled for release on February 25.
Yay! Who else is excited about this one?!
