Better off Friends
By: Elizabeth Eulberg
Pub. Date: February 25, 2014
For Macallan and Levi, it was friends at first sight. Everyone says guys and girls can’t be just friends, but these two are. They hang out after school, share tons of inside jokes, their families are super close, and Levi even starts dating one of Macallan’s friends. They are platonic and happy that way.
Eventually they realize they’re best friends — which wouldn’t be so bad if they didn’t keep getting in each other’s way. Guys won’t ask Macallan out because they think she’s with Levi, and Levi spends too much time joking around with Macallan, and maybe not enough time with his date. They can’t help but wonder . . . are they more than friends or are they better off without making it even more complicated?
From romantic comedy superstar Elizabeth Eulberg comes a fresh, fun examination of a question for the ages: Can guys and girls ever really be just friends? Or are they always one fight away from not speaking again — and one kiss away from true love?

Elizabeth Eulberg is one of my favorite authors. I have read all of her books and have loved every one of them so I was extremely happy when I was approved for Better off Friends. I absolutely loved it! The story is about two best friends, Macallan and Levi. They have this wonderful friendship and it seems like nothing could penetrate it, even when they each gets respective boyfriends and girlfriends. I loved the personalities of both Macallan and Levi. They both were so easily relatable and they had one of the best chemistries I have ever seen. I just love the way they connected with each other! I felt so bad for everyone else around them, because they would never be able to get in between these two!
The story is told in the point of view of both Macallan and Levi. I have always been a fan of duel POV and Eulberg did a wonderful job at getting inside these two characters heads. Also, in between each chapter were conversations between them which I absolutely loved! I can't get over how cute these two were together!
I think the cover is just perfect. It's so sweet and simple and I love everything about it. It fits the story and just sets the tone for what is inside. Overall, Better off Friends is a great story that I highly recommend!
