Forever by Monica Murphy

Release Date: April 4th, 2017

Series: Friends

Genre: Young Adult

Forever, an all new Friends story from Monica Murphy, is available now!!

Forever AMAZON

She’s all I could ever want…

I have a reputation around school. Cold. Untouchable. Unfeeling. Only one girl could ever make me want to change and that’s Amanda Winters. Too bad I broke her heart and drove her away.

So to get through the rest of my days in high school, I tell myself I need to focus on more important things. Like taking our football team to championships. Get accepted to the college of my choice. And finish my senior year without wanting to run away from my problems.

But your problems chase after you no matter where you go. And it’s a lot harder when you fight them alone. The longer I go without Amanda, the more I miss her. Her smile. Her laughter. The things she said. How she looked at me like I was the only person who mattered. The way she made me feel…

Why can’t I have everything, including the girl? I’m determined to make things right. And make Amanda mine…

Forever.

My Review:

4.5 Stars!

I have to admit… I never thought I would get so invested in a YA romance series, but the Friends series is addictive, crazy goodness! In Forever, we get more of the crazy teenage drama (and there is a lot of it) and the conclusion to Amanda and Tuttle’s story, plus more of the gang!

Jordan and Amanda make me crazy. They are so scattered sometimes. They are perfect but they can’t seem to get over themselves enough to get it together. Jordan is by far the best character in this series. Even when you want to scream at him you love him. I loved Jordan and Amanda’s resolution.

Forever is a fast-paced, addictive page-turner with characters that will drive you crazy and make you love them at the same time. Murphy has really out done herself with Forever!

Excerpt:

I’m walking through the senior parking lot when I spot Jordan standing near his black Range Rover, leaning against its side. He’s wearing a white Henley shirt, his arms crossed and his biceps bulging beneath the long sleeves. The breeze ruffles his dark hair across his forehead and he stares off into the distance, every inch the troubled, broody boy that he is.

He looks so freaking good, I’m momentarily distracted by him. I stop and stare, my lips parted, my breath becoming shallow. It’s still hard for me to believe that this guy, this gorgeous, sweet, annoying, smart, strong, wonderful, awful boy likes me. That he might even care about me.

“Hey.” His deep baritone knocks me from my daze, and I head over, stopping just in front of him. “Where’s Livvy?”

“She made last minute plans. With someone else.” I don’t say anything else. Livvy’s secret isn’t mine to tell, and I’m afraid if I start talking about it, I’ll get really pissed. So I leave it alone. “Guess I don’t need to drive your car after all, but thank you for offering. I sense it was huge deal.”

“It is,” he agrees, tipping his head toward me. “But you’re worth it.”

Oh. He says things like that and I’m left speechless.

“You don’t have any plans?”

“No.” I shake my head, feeling tongue-tied.

Jordan grabs my hand, lacing our fingers and giving them a squeeze. “Then let’s go to lunch together.”

“Don’t you want to stay here?” He usually does. He’s always out at the quad, holding court over his loyal subjects. I used to sit out there with him, with all of them, just basking in his presence. But once we had the so-called breakup of our so-called relationship, I stopped going. One, because I couldn’t stand to be near him knowing he wasn’t mine anymore. Besides, most everyone who would hang out with Tuttle is annoying. Frustrating. Awful.

All of the above.

“No, not if I can sneak off campus somewhere with you.” He tugs me closer, his expression serious, his voice low. “Let me treat you to lunch, Amanda.”

When he talks to me like that, looks at me like that, I tend to give in easily.

“Okay,” I say softly, a jolt pulsing through me when he runs his thumb over the top of my hand. Sometimes the simplest touch has the most devastating effect.

My Review:

4.5 Stars!!!

Gah!  This is the perfect mashup of two of Monica’s best-selling series, The Rules Series & her One Week Girlfriend series.  This book is near perfection!

Sydney Walker (Gabe Walker’s little sister) has a just scored her first job.  And she desperately needed it after her father cut her off completely.  Sydney is the brand new nanny/helper for Drew and Fable Callahan.  Yes, that Drew and Fable!  Things are great until the media suspects Drew of having an affair with the 19 year old nanny.  Suddenly, she is being badgered by the press and life is all kinds of crazy.  Enter Wade (well, he was there from the beginning, but that segue was perfect.  You’ll see).  Wade Knox just so happens to be Owen McGuire’s, Fable’s little brother, best friend and an honorary member of the Callahan clan.  He was just drafted to play for the 49ers, which is also Drew’s team.  So, Drew has taken him under his wing, so to speak.  When the story of the not-so-real relationship between Drew and Sydney comes out, the Callahans ask Wade to pose as Sydney’s fake boyfriend.  He agrees, not only because he owes Drew and Fable a lot, but also because Sydney is beautiful.

No one will top Drew and Fable for me as far as Murphy’s characters go, but Wade and Sydney are pretty great.  They have great chemistry, he is really sweet to her and while things moved along pretty quickly after they started the fake relationship, it didn’t diminished the feels that this book offers.

I was super excited for this book and I can honestly say, I was not disappointed in the least!

Safe Bet is a perfect mash up of two series full of beloved characters and the opportunity to get to know these two new characters.  Sweet, sexy and emotional, Safe Bet is well…a safe bet!

Excerpt Reveal! Safe Bet by Monica Murphy arrives in 2

 

Excerpt:
“Drew!” Fable
calls, waving him over. “Come meet Sydney.”
He starts to head
over there and when he sends me a look over his shoulder, I reluctantly follow
him. I really don’t need to be involved in this scenario, but I just can’t tell
him that, can I? It would be rude. And I’m never rude to Drew and Fable.
Ever.
“Sydney, this is
my husband, Drew. Drew, this is Sydney Walker. She’s going to be our new
nanny,” Fable says, sounding pleased. She looks over at her husband with a
little wince. “I hope you don’t mind that I went ahead and hired her.”
“Of course I don’t
mind. I trust your judgment.” Drew turns to greet Sydney. “Good to meet you,”
he says as he gives Sydney a firm handshake. She’s staring up at him, her lips
slightly parted, her eyes wide. Full on awestruck, which is typical. He’s a
superstar. That’s how most people look at Drew when they first meet him.
“Hi,” she squeaks,
her cheeks going pink as she releases Drew’s hand. Her gaze slips to mine, and
then flitters away. But that one quick glance was like a sucker punch to my
gut.
The nanny is
beautiful.
I take a deep
breath, shoving my hands in my jeans’ pockets so I won’t do something
stupid—like try to grab her. She has pretty blue eyes and a full mouth that’s
made for kissing. Her curves are even lusher than I first realized. She has
full hips and a tiny waist and shapely legs. But I can’t worry about pretty
nannies right now. I have to concentrate on work.
It still blows my
mind that I might play for the NFL. That football is my job. I’m a lucky son-of-a-bitch.
“Sydney, this is
Wade Knox. He’s an old family friend,” Fable says, knocking me from my
thoughts. I blink and look down to find Sydney smiling up at me, interest
clearly showing in her gaze. Hmm. “Wade, this is Sydney.”
“Hey Sydney.” I
shake her hand, electricity pulsing between us the moment our palms touch. She
jerks her hand away from mine as if I burned her. Guess she felt it too.
Interesting.
“Nice to meet
you,” she murmurs as she takes a step back. Like she needs the distance.
Even more interesting.
We make small talk
for a few minutes before Fable takes Sydney back to the house, and the moment
the door shuts behind them, Drew’s talking.
“The nanny’s
cute,” he observes, his voice way too nonchalant.
“Uh huh.”
“She looked at you
like she thought you were cute, too.”
I roll my eyes. He
never says stuff like this, so what’s his deal? “Cute? What are you doing?
Trying to play matchmaker?” I send him a pointed look. “Give me a break. I
don’t need the distraction.”

4.5 Stars for More Than Friends by Monica Murphy

more-than-friends

Title:  More Than Friends

Series:  Friends #2

Author:  Monica Murphy

Genre:  Young Adult, Romance

Publication Date:  November 14, 2016

Synopsis:  

He’s not perfect, but he’s all I want…

I’m your average girl at your average high school, trying to figure out my place in life. After catching my now ex-boyfriend messing around with my now ex-best friend, I’ve made some big changes. No more band, no more backstabbing friends and no more boring old life. Now I have new friends, a new job and new interests.

But there’s a certain someone who’s interested in me, and I don’t get it. Jordan Tuttle could have anyone he wants. He’s the most popular boy in school. Rich, gorgeous, smart and the star quarterback, he’s perfect. Yet he acts like he wants no one else but…me. So despite my fears and doubt, I let him get close. Probably too close. I discover that he’s not so perfect after all, but it doesn’t matter. I’m falling for him, even though he runs so hot and cold. I know someday he’s going to break my heart.

And I’m going to let him.

 

My Review:

4.5/5 Stars!

Spoiler free review

Monica Murphy does it again with this second installment in her Friends series featuring a group of angsty teens who live for drama.

Man. High school is high drama!

In More Than Friends, we get Amanda and Tuttle’s story. Amanda is the band geek friend of Livvy, the heroine of book 1. Tuttle is the star quarterback and friends with Ryan, Livvy’s BF. We were given a little glimpse of Amanda and Tuttle in book 1, but you do not have to have read book one to read this one. However, if you want more Tuttle and Amanda, pick up the companion novella, One Night.

Amanda and Tuttle are complete opposites, yet during a party they connected. Amanda wants to believe that Tuttle really wants her, but she is skeptical. He has quite a track record. Tuttle wants Amanda but can’t seem to get her to see he’s for real. There is a definitely foreboding of their relationship not working out. The two of them seem to be sabotaging themselves.

Highly angsty, but sweetly romantic at times, More Than Friends will suck you in and you won’t regret it.

My Review:

5/5 Stars!!

Just Friends is the newest release from Monica Murphy and it is one you won’t want to miss!

This is a mature YA, new adult romance about a group of high school friends.  Liv, Em and Dustin are best friends who have a falling out.  Things go from bad to worse when feelings are hurt, revenge is sought and new romantic interests are thrown in the mix.  Liv, the main character, is hurting after she is betrayed by her two best friends.  With her new friend, Amanda, and a new boy, she tries to navigate the world without her other halves.  She doesn’t know who to trust.  These kids are kind of a mess.  They drink, they party, they do drugs and they swap partners like they change shoes.  There is drama, drama and more drama.

I loved the drama!

Another great book by Monica Murphy and one you won’t want to miss.

Warning:  This is definitely mature YA.  There is drinking, drug and sex.  May not be appropriate for younger readers.

New Release! 5 Star review of Daring the Bad Boy by Monica Murphy

daring

Daring the Bad Boy

Author:  Monica Murphy

Publication Date:  August 22, 2016

Genre:  Young Adult, Romance

Synopsis:  

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains references to drinking, sexual situations, adult language, and an intense bad boy hero who will melt your heart.

Annie McFarland is sick of being a shy nobody. A session at summer camp seems like the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself—gain some confidence, kiss a boy, be whoever she wants to be. A few days in, she’s already set her sights on über-hottie Kyle. Too bad her fear of water keeps her away from the lake, where Kyle is always hanging out.

Jacob Fazio is at Camp Pine Ridge after one too many screw-ups. Junior counseling seems like punishment enough, but the rigid no-fraternizing-with-campers rules harsh his chill. When a night of Truth or Dare gets him roped into teaching Annie how to swim, she begs him to also teach her how to snag Kyle.

Late-night swim sessions turn into late-night kissing sessions…but there’s more on the line than just their hearts. If they get caught, Jake’s headed straight to juvie, but Annie’s more than ready to dare him to reveal the truth.

My Review:

5/5 Stars!

Daring the Bad Boy is everything a YA romance should be–sweet, funny, romantic and a little angsty.  A fabulous YA read!

Annie is shy and a little awkward.  Jacob is a bad boy.  They are total opposites.  So, when they cross paths at summer camp, Jacob as a counselor and Annie as a camper, forbidden sparks fly.  The camp has a strict rule about campers and counselors getting involved.  It’s especially important that Jake tow the line since his uncle owns the camp and if he screws up, his uncle will tell his dad and Jake will head straight to juvie, don’t pass go, don’t collect $200 dollars.  But is the risk worth the reward?

I loved Jacob!  He is the penultimate teenage bad boy with a heart.  Annie brings out the best in him and him in her.

I haven’t read a YA book in a while, but some of my favorite books are from the YA genre.  This sweet, funny romance just rocketed its way up into my top 10 YA books of all time.  Monica Murphy solidifies herself in yet another genre.

Do NOT pass this one up!
