Better Off Friends by Elizabeth EulbergBetter Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg
Publication date: February 25, 2014

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?

Better Off Friends sounds like a great contemporary. I hope it’s as good as I’m expecting it to be. My first boyfriend was one of my best friends so I think I’ll be able to relate to their characters and their feelings.




  1. This one sounds really interesting. I hope it’ll be an amazing contemporary read full of emotions. My favorite kind. Great pick 🙂

  9. This one’s new to me, Jenna. Though it seemed cliche, it still sound like real fun. I hope the author would be able to handle their relationship well. 😀

    And thanks for sharing that little snippet of your personal life.

    I hope you’ll be able to read this when the time comes.

    Belated Happy New Year!
