I would give this book 3 for a review.
Willa Evans has no intention of breaking the code. So what if she’s always secretly loved her next-door neighbor Zach? As her best friend’s boyfriend, he was always off-limits and it needs to stay that way, even though they just broke up. Even though every time she turns around he’s there, tempting her…
No keeping secrets from your bestie.
Flor Hidalgo has a lot on her plate: her breakup with Zach, her dad’s new dating life, and her struggling grades. So why can’t she stop thinking about her hot, know-it-all tutor? At least she’s got Willa, her constant in the chaos.
Breaking the code breaks friendships.
Two friends find themselves tempted by love that defies the rules in this steamy romance perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Simone Elkeles.
This book was a super fast pace read. I thought it was a rather fun cont. book that had the prefect balance between fun elements like romance and friendship dynamics. I also like how the girl code rules started each chapters as a fun way to structure the novel. I thought the POV could have been a bit stronger and a bit easier to tell them apart. The book was predictable at moments but I really did enjoy it and read it in a full day. I hope to read more by this author in the future.
