Saving It by Monica Murphy
Publication Date: November 6, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush
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!
Thanks Chapter By Chapter Blog Tour for sending me a copy of the book to read for my review and for allowing me to be a part of the book tour for this.
One of the best things about being a book blogger and reviewing books from publishers/authors/book tours is being exposed to books and authors that you might not normally read on your own and this is the case.
This is my first time reading any of Monica Murphy’s books and I have to say if this one is any indication of her previous books I really need to start picking them up to read. She has several series and stand alones and a new book coming out in the new year called Pretty Dead Girls.
Every now and then I like to break up my reading genres just so that I don’t get overwhelmed within a genre, and I am so happy that this was next on my list because every now and then you need a little romance in your life.
Our two main characters are Eden and Josh and they best friends. They know each other pretty much inside and out. I don’t think each other has thought of the other person as anything more then best friends but as you dig deeper into the story you do realize that they both had thoughts of each other but never acted on them.They both know that they can trust each other with everything. So when Josh asks Eden to help him lose is virginity because he is tired of avoiding the locker room banter she has no problem and they brain storm together to find the perfect girl.
I really enjoyed reading this book and it was just so heart warming that Josh felt like he could trust Eden to help him find the perfect girl and little did they both know that she was standing there the whole time. I loved watching this friendship grow into a more serious one with both Eden and Josh.
I can understand why they never said anything to each other because they didn’t want to risk possibly losing a friendship and I probably would have done the same thing. Sometimes its best not to say anything for fear of that.
Saving It is told in both Eden and Josh’s point of views so you are able to get each others thoughts which I think adds to the story.
I am super excited to read Monica’s other books really soon.
