Goodreads Blurb: Libby has been in love with Tony Marchetti since she was seven years old. The problem? Tony is her best friend's older brother. Lately Tony has started looking at her in a new way and he emails her all the time. Could it be possible that he is starting to see her as more than his kid sister's best friend?
Tony knows Libby McKay is off limits. She's his sister's best friend for crying out loud! But she is also smart, funny, and seriously hot. Plus she's not afraid to get a little sweaty-- on the track that is. Tony can't seem to help himself, besides what's a few emails? The occasional phone call? He can keep things light and friendly-- Can't he?
If you want a shining example of what a miraculous mess miscommunication can make of someone's (love) life, you need to pick this up. Seriously, this could've been a whole lot easier (and a little more realistic) if people would stop to always fuss about age differences, re-arranging old ties, step onto someone's toes although the worst that could happen is you get yelled at before everything would sort itself out, and other fabulous crap/standards that make up our social life. *sigh* Seriously, I thought all the characters involved were very nice, especially the mix they presented together, and sure the plot wasn't half bad either, although a little too.. you know, cliché to be really good, it wasn't really anthing new. But still, it was a nice read, would've been even without the last bit of smut that was kinda squeezed in without really being needed, and the disaster that followed before everything was finally resolved. That was just a bit too much for my taste. But still, all in all, nice but nothing striking, a solid middle-ranking read.
Rating: Style: 3/5 -- Plot: 3/5 -- Characters: 4/5 -- Humor: 3/5 -- Drama: 3.5/5 -- Smut: 2/5
