I love this series. They touch me like no other series written today. Each one is so heartfelt and leaves me happier than I was before. Once again I was enchanted. This is a book of missed opportunities, regret, and mistakes. It's also a book of hope, sisterly love, friendship, and young love. It's a story that could occur in any high school across the country. Best friends fall in love all of the time but are too scared or shy to go after what they want. Boyfriends and girlfriends make (un)forgivable mistakes, lie, and hurt the other person in the relationship every day. They are not necessarily bad people. They are young, stupid, careless with another's heart. This doesn't make it okay or lessen the pain but it doesn't make them a horrible person either. They will likely get their heart broken one day too. It's part of life and love. This story of young love, first love, lasting love is written to perfection. It's a series of normal days that become extraordinary, precious childhood memories, perfect days in the present, and the hope of a lifetime of the same. This book was all about P, B, and J but the supporting characters deserve mention. Misguided Caroline... Normally, I would hate this girl, but instead, I actually pitied her. The Bennett Girls...I love them in every book they appear. The wedding preparations, hurricane Brenna, and the good-natured teasing were the perfect balance to the heavy emotions the teens were all facing.
As I've mentioned more than once, this series reaches me like no other. Each time I finish one of the Boyfriend books I'm afraid that it will be the last. I can't imagine that Christina Benjamin can continue to come up with ideas for and write these dear books forever. For right now I'm going to look for the rainbows and hope that she has at least one (5, 10, 20) more in mind for the future.
Beth is the girl next door and her family took care of Parker and his Father when his Mother died suddenly. Beth and Parker had a crush on each other since they were kids, the problem was neither one knew. The kept it a secret from the other just in case the feelings weren't mutual. As Parker said 'he would rather have Beth as a friend than not at all'. Then Jared came in the picture and swept Beth off her feet. Can Parker prove to her that he isn't what he seems? Will he finally tell her how he really feels?
All I want to do is gush about how much I adored Parker and Beth, but mostly Parker. They were just so stinking cute! How could Beth ever even think to date anyone else when Parker was right next door? I mean, really? And to go for Jared of all people. Gross. Also while on the topic of terrible people can we talk about Caroline for a second? She was pretty terrible and I know in her own twisted way she was trying to help Beth but she went about it in the WRONG way! I'm not sure there was a worse way she could have gone about that. It must be nice to have that kind of money and power, though.
Honestly, I would also read a book about Beth's sister Brenna. She seemed awesome and like she has a story to tell too. Plus if it wasn't for her wedding Parker and Beth may still be just friends and pinning after each other in secret. I don't think I could have survived if I had that many sisters, though. One stealing my clothes was enough, thanks.
This is one of the best contemporary series' I've ever read! You can read them in any order because they are written as if they were stand alone's.
Now enter the new guy, Jared, who just moved across the street. He takes Beth's attention from Parker. But does he really? Is Parker ever going to be more than just the boy next door?
This book was very sweet and wonderful. It flows wonderfully and the characters are very well described.
If you have read any of the authors other books this is definitely one to read as well.
I received a free copy of this book via BookSprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
