The sass doesn’t stop there, Annie becomes friends with Lenny, the number one player’s daughter. She has her own family issues, and an idiot for a brother. Lenny takes Annie into her world and they quickly become best friends.
Annie starts to crush on Brody pretty quickly, he is hanging round her house practicing with her dad after all, so it’s only natural! The two year age gap poses a threat though, she worries that he sees her as a little sister, worse than the friend zone for sure! I really liked that the age gap was so small and that they were both still teenagers, it made the whole crushing on each other a lot more believable.
That’s right, I said crushing on each other! He likes her back. But he’s a respectable guy, and he really likes her dad. Which means he doesn’t want to jeopardise his relationship with him by dating his daughter. And I don’t blame him, because Annie’s did is incredible, well, apart from the whole wife thing. He’s super protective and supportive of his little girl, who he raised basically all on his own.
I mentioned in the first impression review that I (thankfully) found Annie to be rather mature. After finishing the book I can happily say that that opinion stood true. Although there were moments of immaturity, these could be overlooked as they really did not predominate.
“No, I’m a Jason Brody groupie. That’s even worse than mentally unstable.”

‘Whatever Life Throws At You’ by Julie Cross
Lusting after his best friend’s girlfriend is a cliche Billy knows well – it’s the tightrope he’s walked for years.
But now Jason and Lindy have broken up and Billy can’t but be there for the girl he’s from afar for so long. She’s hurting.
Fighting to find a road to the future, Lindy’s heart hurts. She’s trying to escape the truth, but Billy keeps making her face it – and it’s ugly. How can she keep living when everything is made of glass and it keeps shattering?
Her one constant is Billy. Only, rebound isn’t his style and when Lindy starts to see him in a different light, he just can’t trust her. He’s no one’s second best.

Description from Goodreads:
Graham Malone is my roommate, my personal eye candy, the reason I get up in the morning smiling (that could be from the illicit dreams I have about him too, I suppose. Let’s move on). He’s also beautiful to look at, but his heart is where his true beauty lies. Take away the exterior and the interior still shines.
I love him. I mean, I’m pretty sure I do, having never been in love before. Anyway, it seems legit.
And now his brother Blake is here, and, well, he’s the complete opposite of Graham. Sarcastic, brooding, and totally available. But he’s leaving soon, and Graham’s the one I want. I shouldn’t have to remind myself of this, right? I wouldn’t have to if Blake would quit looking at me like I’m something yummy and he’s starving.
Here’s a toast to roomies; the ones you should never fall in love with. Or something.
