Summary: Lani and Erin are lifelong best friends — and total opposites. Lani’s a down-to-earth Taurus; Erin’s a fiery Leo. Lani likes to do her own thing; Erin prefers an entourage. They’ve always had wildly different tastes, from pizza toppings to guys. That is, until Erin starts dating Jason.
From the minute Lani meets Jason, she can’t deny the amazing connection she feels with him. It’s like they’ve known each other their whole lives. She’s not sure if he feels it too — but even if he does, he’s off-limits. Lani’s determined to ignore her feelings for Jason, no matter how powerful they are, rather than hurt her best friend. Then Erin goes away for the summer — and Jason seems to appear everywhere Lani turns. How long can she keep running from the guy who just might be the love of her life? (source: Goodreads.com)
This book is basically a typical YA novel. It was very well written for the audience intended. I loved reading this book; it was quite easy to relate to all of the love and fun that high school has, not to mention how it reminded me of my own summer love.
The development of the characters was really well done. The plot was a little hard to follow at times because it jumps around a bit. I feel like it was a little slow at parts. But all in all I think it was a fantastic book. Definitely one I would read again!
