I loved this book the friend did break up with him so Sarah didn't take him a way from Brianna

Interesting book. The ending was predictable though. I didn't expect *spoiler alert* that Brianna would shut the door in Sarah's face though. There should've been a twist ending. But overall I enjoyed this book! :)

i never know that the unwritten rule was that you can't like your friends boyfriend? this book is a must read!!!

I really like this author and this novel. I agree with one of the other commenters saying it's the YA version of Something Borrowed. They were both great books. I thought the ending was truthful. You can't always expect a happy ending.

I didn't find the book very good. It was slightly exaggerated, and the ending was dissapointing.

really really good, but as mentioned below, the ending is a bit disappointing, and its a little predictable.

It was a nice book, about betrayal and guilt. The ending was disappointing. I would of liked a ending where Sarah feels more guilty. I thought the scenes were to emotional. I didn't like the book.

Basically a young adult version of "Something Borrowed." The characters were interesting, and almost painstakingly well-rounded, so that you really saw where everyone came from, what their motivations were. A fast read, and sadisfying enough. One thing that really bugged me, was that Elizabeth Scott likes to start paragraphs with one person talking, and end them with another person talking. That was just confusing, made it hard for the conversations to flow. But maybe just a pet peeve of mine.

The Back:
Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like your best friend's boyfriend.
Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, supersmart, and totaly gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two tiny details: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend.
Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She fels so guilty. for wanting him, and the last thing she wants to do is hurt her best friend. But when she is thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens between them. It's wonderful... and awful. Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself from wanting more....

I've liked Ryan for a long time. An embarrassingly long time, but nobody, not even Branna , knows that. She thinks that back in the eighth grade, when he asked me to a dance and I said yes, I was just being nice, and when I said,"I...I sort of like him, okay?" hoping she'd say it was, she said,"Come on, you can't really like him. He's Ryan."
