Title: Rule #3: You Can’t Kiss Your Best Friend
Author: Anne-Marie Meyer
Series: The Rules of Love #3

It was supposed to be a simple kiss. That was all. Whoops.

My plan was perfect: convince my best friend and school quarterback, Ethan, to be the final prize for my matchmaking test where the proceeds go to sending the band to Paris. Plus, if it matches me with my life-long crush, that’s a bonus, right?

What could go wrong?

Apparently, a lot.

First, the test matches me and Ethan. Which is easy to explain. Computers make mistakes all the time, right?

Second, the girl I switch myself for seems perfect for Ethan. Maybe a bit too perfect.

Third, my date with my crush goes horribly wrong and my first kiss tanks.

Now, I’m pretty sure I’m destined to be alone while Ethan rides off into the sunset with his perfect match.

Man, I’ve screwed up bad—especially when I ask Ethan the secrets to a good kiss.

Big mistake.

Feelings start to change and I’m pretty sure that our friendship isn’t going to be enough anymore. Too bad I seem to be the only one in our duo who seems to feel this way.




Short Review
OMG I so did not expect to love this so much!

Long Review
Okay, yes, I loved all the other books in this series but this one? This one had to be the best so far. I mean, I really loved it and so happy with the way everything turned out. I don’t know why I loved it if it was because of the plot or what but I enjoyed it either way. It had me laughing out loud a few times and squealing and gasping every time something exciting happened in the story. But, who couldn’t love the boy next door, football player, sweet guy, and best friend? The suspense was painfully killing me while I was waiting for Olivia and Ethan to be together but it was so worth it. I think the suspense it part of why the book was so good because it kept you hooked the whole way. This book just got better and better the farther in I got. One of my favorite things about Olivia and Ethan’s relationship is how they started has best friends so you know they already have such a strong and special relationship. One of the minor characters that really surprised me because I didn’t think she was important was Beatrice who is Olivia’s sister. It turns out that she was extremely important to the story and I ended up loving her personality and was so happy with how her character turned out. Overall, I’m pleasantly surprised with this book.

Butterfly Rating: 3 Stars


Book Boyfriend Rating: 4 stars

Ethan was so sweet and had so many good qualities about him. I also love that Olivia’s parents loved him.

Age Recommendation: 12+
