Review: Always My Girl by Samantha Chase
Sometimes the love that's closest to you is the hardest to see.
Quinn Shaughnessy's two older brothers have found their true loves ... but Quinn's not about to join that parade. Nope, as he tells his best friend Anna, there's a lot more to life than getting tied down to one person. He's positive tomboy Anna will be on his side - except she's inexplicably developing other interests - even dating! Suddenly Quinn is seeing Anna in a very different light.
Quinn has been Anna's buddy since they were both five years old. She can tell him anything - except the one big secret she's been hiding for years - that she's fallen in love with him. Now Anna is determined to make a life for herself that doesn't include pining for Quinn. Falling in love with your best friend? Easy. Telling them how you really feel? Impossible.
*** 3 Star Review ***
I ate the story-line in this one up. I loved the best friends who are in love but n denial plot. Let's face it, it happens all of the time.
At first, I was all about this book. I was expecting so much from a book like this. I wanted laughs, tears, some really great aha moments. The setups were there, but the delivery wasn't. I didn't feel what the scenes built me up to feel. The build was there, but with no follow through.
The characters in this story have the potential to be very likable, but their immaturity for their ages pulled away from that some. I would have assumed there would have been more growth in the characters. Instead, they were reminded me of teenagers from start to finish.
This book is definitely a light read. It is the perfect book for lounging out in the sun while reading. The time will fly with this book. If you are looking for a light book to pass the time with, this is the perfect book.
