Review: Her Best Friend's Brother
By: T.J. Dell
Release Date: September 22, 2011
Libby has been in love with Tony Marchetti since she was seven years old. The problem? Tony is her best friend's older brother. Lately Tony has started looking at her in a new way and he emails her all the time. Could it be possible that he is starting to see her as more than his kid sister's best friend?
Tony knows Libby McKay is off limits. She's his sister's best friend for crying out loud! But she is also smart, funny, and seriously hot. Plus she's not afraid to get a little sweaty-- on the track that is. Tony can't seem to help himself, besides what's a few emails? The occasional phone call? He can keep things light and friendly-- Can't he?
Warning: This book contains some adult content.
I randomly picked up this book thinking I would get a great contemporary read and I was not disappointed. I will definitely be checking more out from this author. We meet Libby who is best friends with Mel who happens to have a brother that Libby is head over heels for. There was a lot of back and forth in this book and even though you just knew it had to work out in the end it was still fun to see what trouble they could get into.
Mel knew that Libby liked her brother but would constantly try and steer her in other directions because her brother seemed to be playing so many games. But Libby couldn't help how she felt and there were even times when she just knew that Tony felt the same way about her but something would always make him pull back.
This book spanned from when they were little kids and first met until after college and man was it an adventure I can't believe she kept up hope for that long but I guess when you know something is meant to be you just don't mess with it. There were times when you would cheer for one or the other just hoping that they would finally get things right but again something always happened to change the outcome.
There were other girls, other guys, a meddling sister and just being the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong news. It was a quick and easy read and I really enjoyed it. I'll have to check out more from this author.
