Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg
Pub. Date: February 25, 2014
Goodreads says, "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? From romantic comedy superstar Elizabeth Eulberg comes a fresh, fun examination of a question for the ages: 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?"
Ok, so I hope I am not showing my age here, but does this remind you of Joey/Pacey/Dawson in the BEST way possible? (I was sort of obsessed with Dawson's Creek in high school and may or may not have re-watched all the episodes a few years ago.) Anyway, I thought Eulberg's The Lonely Hearts Club was entertaining and I really enjoyed Prom and Prejudice, so I will definitely be checking this one out. What do you guys think?
