The One that I Want- Review

The One That I Want

Goodreads Description

Gemma can't believe her luck when the star football player starts flirting with her. Max is totally swoon-worthy, and even gets her quirky sense of humor. So when he asks out her so-called best friend Addison, Gemma's heartbroken.
Then Addison pressures Gemma to join the date with one of Max's friends. But the more time they all spend together, the harder Gemma falls for Max. She can't help thinking that Max likes her back--it's just too bad he's already dating Addison. How can Gemma get the guy she wants without going after her best friend's boyfriend?

My Thoughts
After finishing Catching Jordan, I found myself looking for another fun contemp. As I said before, I don’t read a ton of them so when I looked at my TBR pile I didn’t find one. Well, you can imagine my excitement when this book turned up in my mailbox the next day. I immediately picked it up and began reading it. This book was exactly what I had been looking to read!
Ever had a friend that looking back you realize they weren’t your friend at all? If so, you will definitely relate to this book.
You would think that since Gemma was the one trying to steal Addison’s boyfriend that she would be the villain in this story, however, that is not the case. It is actually quite the opposite, really. Addison’s character is so rude and disrespectful to Gemma that it’s impossible to care what happens to her. It’s almost to the point where you want her to get hurt just because she has caused Gemma so much pain through the years.
I loved Gemma and Max’s relationship. From the beginning, it’s obvious that they are perfect for each other. They have similar personalities but not so much that the relationship is boring. I loved how they would get mad at each other and argue then feel bad and make up. However, truth be told, 99% of their problems stemmed from Addison. Gosh, I just can’t say enough times how much I disliked her! For most of the book, Carter was a mystery to me. I didn’t understand why he would act one way one minute then turn around act totally different the next. This is all well explained at the end of the book.
The storyline was fun and entertaining. It kept me turning the pages and within 24 hours I was finished with the book. The book is very relatable to teens that are in high school, as well as anyone who’s been in high school. Basically, anyone can relate to this book. Great Read!
