Review: Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg

Better off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg

For Macallan and Levi, it was friends at first sight. Everyone says guys and girls can’t be just friends, but these two are. They hang out after school, share tons of inside jokes, their families are super close, and Levi even starts dating one of Macallan’s friends. They are platonic and happy that way.

Eventually they realize they’re best friends — which wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t keep getting in each other’s way. Guys won’t ask Macallan out because they think she’s with Levi, and Levi spends too much time joking around with Macallan, and maybe not enough time with his date. They can’t help but wonder . . . are they more than friends or are they better off without making it even more complicated?

From romantic comedy superstar Elizabeth Eulberg comes a fresh, fun examination of a question for the ages: Can guys and girls ever really be just friends? Or are they always one fight away from not speaking again — and one kiss away from true love?

First Line: Guys and Girls can be friends.

Review:  Levi and Macallan have been friends since seventh grade when Levi moved to Wisconsin with his family. They are the definition of best friends but they discover throughout their years growing up that being best friends with someone of the opposite sex can become a little puzzling.

What I loved the most about Better off Friends was that the story took place over several years. It went from seventh grade and ended in their senior year of high school, which really worked because we really got to know the characters and understand where they were coming from and see them grow as individuals. I was glad to see there was alternate point of views and I loved the commentary at the end of each chapter as well.

As for the characters they were written very well. Both of them were portrayed perfectly throughout their years when they were in seventh grade they acted like a seventh grader would act and so on and so forth. I really liked seeing them grow up and seeing their friendship transition into what it had become and seeing how they dealt with it, although I am going to admit their was a point where it was obvious how it would end and it felt like problems were just being thrown in just for the heck of it. 

Overall I really enjoyed Better off Friends and this was actually a very clean read and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to read a cute romance novel.
