(heads, they sleep together, tails they don’t) the night before they are
about to attend a destination wedding, she drunkenly accepts his
challenge. But when Megan wakes up the next morning with a bad hang-over
and Ben in her bed, she is more than mortified. It isn’t until the
tropical heat begins to ignite emotions Megan never ever believed she
could possibly have, that she starts to question if risking their
friendship is the answer to finding true love
Between Friends was fun, sexy and one great read! As a reader who loves New Adult novels, this was definitely one of those books that people will either love the characters and their personalities or dislike what was going to happen. I thought the story was very clever and was full of love between the characters. There was some grammar, but it was easy to over look. Amanda Cowen has created a good addictive read for all readers who are interested in this new genre!I did wish there was more stories of Megan's friends, because we did not get to see what they were like.
The main character Megan is the maid of honor for her best friend Jessica's wedding in Costa Rica. The night before she meets her best friend Ben for drinks where everything changes with just a coin toss. I though Megan was a bit whiny through some of the situations with what was happening with Ben. What I liked about him was that he was honest with Megan at the same time you get to see what he wants to be with Megan from the beginning of the book. Megan thought it would ruin their relationship as friends with the complication with sex, but as you read the book, they are really perfect for each other. I did like Cowen writing but at times it did have some repetitive words in the beginning of the novel.
Overall, Between Friends was a really quick read for me since I did like it! The chemistry between Ben and Megan were both funny during the preparations for Jessica's wedding to the most sweetest thing he could do to win her heart! The ending was adorable because I was totally rooting for these characters! Definitely check this book out if you love romance, tropical setting and friends crossing the line to relationship.
