As childhood friends Claude and Kelly shared there cereal to their innermost secrets. As the years pass, growing up was not easy with the different dilemmas and challenges that seem to find there way into there lives. But through it all, the good and the bad times they stuck together no matter what. As Claude and Kelly grew closer their feelings and emotions grew stronger for each other. Certain circumstances arise that make them question and really think about taking their relationship to the next level. Will these two lovebirds be able to mend what has become broken?

Friend to Lovers is such a beautiful story about true friendship and love. I believe that in any relationship you have to be great friends before becoming lovers or even making a marital commitment and this novel is a great example. I became very emotional reading this novel; it was very good. The author captures my attention from the very start and it was hard to come up for air. The storyline was great; it flowed throughout and was easy to keep up with. A wonderful read that I will recommend to others.

Don't miss out on reading this heartwarming book.
I found myself becoming very emotional while reading this book wondering just how much a young man can take and still hold on to his sanity.This book gripped my heart from the start and held on even after the last page was read.I read a great deal of books and it has been a long time since a book has touched me like this My heart went out to Claude, He had so much tragedy in his life but he had Kelly a childhood friend and her mother. Everyone should have a friend like her. Someone that will stand beside you no matter the situatiion,Someone that is there in your darkest hour to let you know that they are willing to be your life line. Burkett is a great writer and I look forward to reading more of his work.

Format: Paperback
Claude Daniels is a high school senior that is dealt a tragic hand at the beginning of his senior year. However, he has his best friend and love of his life, Kelly Brown, to love him through the pain. Even though they both are very much in love with each other, they refuse to take their relationship from friend to lover because they are afraid that if anything went wrong, they would no longer have that close friend relationship that they both so heavily depend on. Once Claude and Kelly start dating other people, they realize (along with their significant others) that they belong together. The question is, can their relationship withstand the test of time much like their friendship?

Friends 2 Lovers by Jonathan Anthony Burkett was not an easy read. It read like a play or conversation where the scene was periodically set. I also found the story to be somewhat random and juvenile. Being a teacher, the conversations reminded me of those I hear my students having with one another. Also, the characters were not very well developed. There were a lot of unanswered questions that could have been answered if the characters and settings were more developed to give a better understanding of where the author was trying to go with the story. However, the poetry throughout the book was very nicely written. I could feel the passion coming through each poem. Unfortunately, the poems were the highlight of the book.

Format: Paperback
In this book, there are some major issues and challenges covered inside such as Troy, 20-year-old, high school student (which he is nearly passed the age limit of 21 or number of years to be in school versus obtaining his GED); parents rely on Claude, 17-year-old senior to graduate and be the successful one of the family; and how family's secrets lead to rivalries between the next generation. Troy Daniel is the bad boy; some would view as a split-image of his father's past behaviors growing up at his age. He is willing to lie down his life if anything ever happens to his brother, Claude. Claude cares deeply for his best friend, Kelly, who is unable at first to see beyond their friendship. Their father, Charles, even hides the fight that broke-out between Stanley and his son, Robert, because Stan rammed into his BMW. This was so immature and childish for men to fight over a car bump, when they could have handled this in a more civilized manner such as call the police, report the accident, and contact their insurance providers. This fight between grown men, later involved their children too. We have to be mindful of our actions and responses since it also has a bearing on our offspring (children). I hope the author was trying to point this out in the book as well.

Overall, this book exemplifies a teenage love affair that displays love in words, expression, and poetry but love takes action as Kelly's mother, Latoya, mentioned in the reading (Show Me motto). In the earlier readings, we see friends become lovers or friends-with-benefits and Claude admits that he loves Kelly like family (sister).

Format: Paperback
"Friends 2 Lovers" is the story of two teens and best friends, Claude and Kelly. Hesitant, unsure and nervous, after a life-altering event, this duo decides to transform their relationship, going from friends to lovers. "Friends 2 Lovers" chronicles that transformation while detailing their emotions, internal and external struggles, and the outside forces that surround them, possibly affecting the couple.

This novel just didn't do it for me. I tried to like "Friends 2 Lovers." I really tried; I just couldn't. Jonathan Burkett has a story to tell, but he could use assistance in telling it. The language was awkward. While I appreciate that this novel was written minus all the slang and Ebonics we see much of our youth using today, this use of language was not practical. I constantly asked myself, who talks like this? These characters spoke like greeting cards. If the characters' names were omitted, I would not have been able to distinguish one from another. All the characters sounded alike, young and old, male and female. There weren't any distinct voices/personalities.

As the tale unfolded, some scenes were unbelievable and not true to life. Events/situations were stretched and dragged on unnecessarily. There was a lot of back and forth resulting in repetition. The phrase "friends to lovers" was beat into the ground. Also, I had to keep reminding myself that this book's setting was current as I kept feeling like I was in the past. Not my high school/college years past, but this book gave me the feel of movies like "Grease" and TV shows like "Happy Days" with the language and the actions of the characters. It was as if this novel was displaced.
