~ Review ~
This book was a fast read. I'm not really sure how to feel about Eli. I felt so bad for Paisley.
Paisley has been in love with Eli, her best friend since she was thirteen. He has no idea that she is in love with him. She is his wingman. She is there to keep girls away and help him hook up with chics. She is finally tired of it and decides she needs to tell him how she feels or let him go. But what will she do if he doesn't reciprocate her feelings? Can she really let him go?
Eli thinks life is good. He has Paisley and all the women he can get. He is shocked when Paisley finally opens up to him. He doesn't want to lose her, but he can't be what she needs. How do you go from being best friends to not having that person in your life anymore? Can he be the guy Paisley needs? Or will he let her go so she can be with someone who can love her?
This story was hard for me to get into. I couldn't really like Eli's character. I know that he tried, but I just couldn't really feel for him. But I love Paisley and wish she would have done some things differently, but otherwise it was a great book. I recommend reading it.
~ Excerpt ~
Oh the joys of watching the man you love get ready to take another woman home … especially when she’s one bad dye job away from being an Oompa-Loompa. Here’s a little snippet from CHANGING EVERYTHING for y’all! Enjoy! “Pay!” “Oh no,” I breathed, and looked at Kristen to act like I hadn’t heard Eli. “If he makes me play pool with him while he makes out with another girl again, I will lose it!” “He’s smiling, at least he didn’t see you moping—and he’s walking over here. With her. Right now. He’s—” “Pay, we’re gonna head out, were you ready to leave?” I turned to look at them with a smile plastered on my face, but it was entirely possible I looked like I was grimacing. “Well … ” I began, but the girl in Eli’s arms held up her hand. She made a sickened face as her head jerked up to look at Eli, then back at me. Long seconds passed as she looked me up and down with her lips parted in disgust. “Um … ew! I’m, like, not really into that whole threesome thing. So gross. Yano?” I wanted to remind her that “you” and “know” were two separate words … but with the way she looked, I was surprised she knew that Eli plus her plus me equaled three and not the color burrito, so I kept that to myself. Eli’s face pinched together like he’d eaten something sour, and before he said something that would inevitably crush me even more tonight, I tried to speak his latest pick’s language. “Ohmigod, like, ew, right?” Kristen’s hand flew to her mouth as beer sprayed out, and Eli’s lack-of-amused expression let me know that he knew what I was doing. At least I didn’t feel like I was going to throw up anymore. “Threesomes are so way gross,” I continued, not like I’d know. But the girl nodded her head and pursed her lips. “So, like, is she gonna watch?” she asked, and it took everything in me not to shoot Eli a look that said: Really?
