See My Review Below!!!
Just About Over You by Carrie Aarons is now live!
What’s the worst thing you could hear your best friend, who you’ve always secretly been in love with, say? That would be telling another girl he could envision her being his wife.
I just about died when Gannon Raferty, the boy who used to borrow my pencils in elementary school, said that to the lead of the reality dating show he was cast on. Though he didn’t win her heart, he’s now a bona fide sensation when he returns to our college and moves back into the off-campus house we share.
The torch I carry for him has always been one-sided; I’m head-over-heels, soulmate-level into him while he views me as a lovable kid sister. So I decide this school year will be the one where I move on, where I finally attempt to open my heart to another. After all, if he can make declarations of undying love to someone he just met, but not to me, that’s the biggest wake-up call I could ever receive.
Until one night early on in the semester, when we accidentally sleep together. Because of course he’s going to confess his feelings now, when I was ready to give up on there ever being an us.
But just as Gannon starts admitting exactly what I’ve always wanted to hear, I get devastating news. And suddenly, I don’t want to risk losing him as a best friend. I’ve already lost too many people I love, and am on the brink of adding one more to that list.
If our romance goes south, I don’t how I’ll ever come back from it. Not only the crushing heartbreak, but the fact that we can never go back to how we were again.

I will admit that YA is usually not my go-to trope. But I have to say that this new story by Carrie Aarons really grabbed me from the start.
I loved how this story started, it jumps right into the mix. No draw up, no long back story that trudges along. You get to the heart of the story within the first couple of chapters and then you get the backstory in the mix, which I really enjoyed.
This story of lifelong best friends, Amelie and Gannon. This is a slow burn story of unrequited love and how it affects each character.
Amelie is trying hard to get over her feelings for Gannon, she doesn’t want to jeopardize their friendship. But her heart wants what her heart wants and that is Gannon.
Gannon is trying to also keep his feeling about Amelie locked down, for completely different reasons.
To read the push and pull of the chemistry between this two kept me riveted. Their age and stage in life took a back seat in this story and it was something that appreciated.
Now I will have to go back and read this first book in the series so I can get a true appreciation for all the secondary characters and I am looking forward to see what comes next!
