Eden: Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that…
Josh: Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing… with anyone but her.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book is what happens when American Pie meets Friends with Benefits. It contains two best friends, plenty of angst, and lots and lots of sex talk. Reading this might have you looking at your best friend in a different light!
Another cutesy and fun read from Entangled Teen Crush! Seriously, these books are so addictive and I always have the best sugar high from them. And Saving It by Monica Murphy… definitely sweet and incredibly swoony.
This is the first book I’ve read from Monica Murphy and I can honestly say that it won’t be my last. Saving It is adorably fun, flirty, and hilarious. Not to mention Eden and Josh’s relationship is absolutely endearing and 100% shippable! The plot is also interesting and had plenty of lovey dovey aww moments that made me all fuzzy and warm. And the ending… so stinkin’ cute and romantic and just so wonderfully done that you’ll want to replay the moment over and over. Definitely one of the cutest friends-lovers romance stories.
I completely and positively adore Eden and Josh. They’re both so charming, funny, and quirky. I loved how they genuinely cared about each other that they didn’t want to do anything that could hurt years of friendship. They’re also very likable and I enjoyed their POVs so much. Being able to see how they really feel about each other was absolutely heartwarming. And even though I wanted them to admit how they truly felt and kiss and just be together, it was super cute and fun to watch them struggle and fight the inevitable. I don’t want to give too many details, but just be prepared to swoon, laugh, aww, giggle and have a smile plastered on your face the entire time… I sure did!
I liked the supporting characters too and the friendship dynamic between them and Eden and Josh. Abraham didn’t sit well with me at first, but by the end, he definitely earned the best friend title award. Then there’s Molly, Eden’s other best friend. She’s the blunt and tell it to your face kind of friend… but at the end of the day, you know she’ll have your back. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and can’t wait to see a book about Molly and Abraham.
Saving It is a delightful, fun, and incredibly swoony read. With great friendships, sweet phone calls, adorable Snapchats, and a cute romance, you won’t be able to resist falling in love with this book. So don’t save it for last… grab a copy now and get ready to fall head over heels with Eden and Josh!
