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.

  • Not good

    By Keithbornmann
    This book should be categorized as erotica. So not what I want to be reading. Mesed up relationship based on luster. Premarital sex.
  • Addictive writing, but WAY too much sex for a teen book

    By Caroline_AA
    I received a copy of More Than Friends from Goodreads First Reads. I took one look at that cover and wanted it. It’s so pretty! Alas, I didn’t enjoy the book as much as I’d hoped. I read through it fairly quickly, it was a page turner, but I guess I just prefer books with less teen drama and different plot devices. As far as the characters go, I liked them. Both Amanda and Tuttle. They both had depth and character flaws. They felt real. Tuttle in particular. He comes across as the perfect golden boy, but once you get inside his head you realize he has a lot of baggage. A LOT of baggage! It’s been a while since I was in high school, and perhaps I just wasn’t / didn’t hang out with the kinds of kids in this book, but I was surprised that a book with such a tame cover would contain so much sexual content! As a parent, I would not be happy to catch my own young adult reading this book, which seems to glorify sex in high school and make it seem as though everyone is doing it. And yeah, maybe I’m letting my prudish side show, but those are my feelings. I prefer my teen fiction to remain clean. If anything happens it’s behind closed doors/fade to black, as well as being between two characters who actually know where they stand with one another, because throughout this entire book Amanda didn’t know if she was actually with Tuttle or not. As a whole, this is a well written book filled with teen drama drama drama, but there is far too much sexual content IMO for a YA book. I’d have much rather seen them at least in college.

  • Pretty good but one problem

    By !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!#
    I LOVED the book. It was very interesting and I felt like I was in the book and really living the characters lives. There were a few problems though. First thing, I think it had some language and other things. Second I didn't like the cliffhanger! It really made me want more but I bought it thinking it would be one complete wonderful story but I figured out that wasn't the case. Now I have to buy another book to finish the full story which I dislike. Other than those very few problems I HIGHLY ENJOYED this book!! I recommend it but be aware of language and cliffhangers!!😀#oneofthebestbooksever 😂😂
  • Waste of time

    By BellaBean
    Don't bother reading cause the author decided she needs another 300+ pages to finally finish. Just wait for the second book if you are even remotely interested in the storyline.
  • Confusing

    By SammyGV18
    I wish the author of whomever wrote the synopsis wrote that there is a book to read before you read this! It started off at a weird moment that left me very confused. The book itself was good! Had a lot of highs and lows. The characters were interesting, some I liked some I got annoyed with. I hated that it ended at such an awkward cliffhanger!!!!! I will read the next but I cannot take another cliffhanger.
  • The Best Book Ever

    By A.R.M.L.
    This is such a great book. I love it so much. I had this book for one day and I already finished it. It's so interesting. I hate that it ended in a cliffhanger. Now I have to wait for the next book to come out. I can't wait.

    “More Than Friends” is author Monica Murphy’s newest young adult book, and the second in her “Friends” series. Again, I am left torn after completing this book (Monica, why do you keep doing this to me?). I really enjoyed “Just Friends,” the first book in the series, and I could not wait for this book to come out because I had hoped it would begin where the last book ended and answer all the lingering questions left from the cliffhanger ending. Do Ryan and Livvy stay together, can she and Em repair their friendship, where does her relationship with Dustin go? But, I should have known that Monica would not simply end the story. Instead, Monica leaves the ready in suspense regarding those characters’ lives and relationship and then re-introduces the reader to Amanda and Tuttle. Oh my…Amanda and Tuttle. I love them. I love their relationship, the complexity, the character development. It feels like high school all over again. And, just when I think we are getting somewhere, when I am completely and utterly hooked in the storyline….it ends. Boom, another cliffhanger. Luckily, I know another story is coming. *I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this story and am posting an honest review.
