Tim Mason was The Boy Most Likely To find the liquor cabinet blindfolded, need a liver transplant, and drive his car into a house
Alice Garrett was The Girl Most Likely To . . . well, not date her little brother’s baggage-burdened best friend, for starters.
For Tim, it wouldn’t be smart to fall for Alice. For Alice, nothing could be scarier than falling for Tim. But Tim has never been known for making the smart choice, and Alice is starting to wonder if the “smart” choice is always the right one. When these two crash into each other, they crash hard.
My rating: 3.75/5
Summer’s gonna be here soon and what better way to get ready for it than with a light, fun contemporary read. I can only recommend another of Huntley Fitzpatrick’s book. As I finished The Boy Next Door quite some time ago, I knew I wanted to know more about Tim Mason, and finally.
We have lots of characters all way through the book and I loved how they all had their position and it worked out really well. Alice and Tim are such interesting characters and their relationship development is great.
Another aspect I really enjoyed was the division between Tim’s and Alice’s relationship and the focus on the baby. I think it was really well balanced and their relationship wasn’t necessarily the focus of the book.
But my favourite thing about the whole book were the scenes showing the chaotic life at the Garrett’s house. I grew up with a lot of neighbors and cousins and we always where this bunch of crazy kids, only having nonsense on our minds. It reminded me so much of my childhood and it thought it was written very acutely.
I thought the book had some unnecessary and slow parts in it, but it is definitely worth reading. Anyone who enjoys adorable contemporary reads, this is the right books for you.
And also, we have a beautiful cover yet again. Huntley Fitzpatrick’s books have all such great and fitting covers and this one definitely adds to the list.
