Fresh off the heels of a devastating breakup, Riley Benson is a mess. But with her ingenious plan to become a ball-busting heartbreaker herself, she’s pretty sure she’ll survive. After all, what better way is there to get revenge than to move on?
Riley’s determined to become the perfect bachelorette—she’s going to drink like a bro, belch like a beast and swear so much that she’ll make even the most seasoned sailors blush. After all, those are the qualities that every guy’s secretly looking for…. aren’t they?
Max Fletcher is in love with the girl who gave him chicken pox and his first broken leg. When his best friend seems to finally be out of the picture, he can’t help but want to keep Riley all to himself. And, after coaching her with the very best of the very worst love advice, it seems as if he might actually get what he’s wanted after all those years. But just as the two come to the realization that they’re actually kind of perfect for each other, along comes a secret that threatens to tear them apart.
This book makes me feel hopeful that things isn’t over yet and you’ll find your perfect match sooner or later, you wouldn’t know when it will come it will just surprise you that he or she is the one you’ve been waiting for. It can be your best friend or someone you’ve just met or your classmate and it can be your childhood friend.

“I loved you since we were kids,” Max told her matter-of-factly. “Since forever ago.”

I honestly loved the book. I enjoyed reading it I laughed and fall in love at the same time. It is a good read after having a stressful day. I like how the author write the whole book, it is not boring and you won’t feel bad after reading each character’s story. The book is full enjoyment even if there’s heartbreaks, it will still make you smile at the end. It is a perfect love story where anyone wants to have. It is crazy and lovely at the same time.

“Love knows no bounds”

What will you do if you found out your best friend loves you for so long? Isn’t it awkward? Or.. will you love him/her back? Who knows right? But then these two characters Max and Riley, had a very interesting story. They’re best friends, Riley broke up with her long term boyfriend and asked Max for help, she was desperate to date someone right away. Max helped her, his tips are weird but Riley do those things anyway but guys turn her down. Max doesn’t have a bad intention doing that things he just wants to protect Riley. Their story gets interesting when Riley is starting to fall in love to her best friend. Their story turned out to something pretty and hopeful. I really fell in love with Max, he is so sweet and over protective guy, I understand that he did that to protect Riley and so that no one will steal her from him. It is kind of rude and sweet at the same time. Riley on the other-hand is kind of a brat. I dislike her at first but as I read further, I understand that she just wants what she wants. At least, at the end she find out who is worth it for her life. Sometimes you just need to fall back just to know the real lesson. 
“What’s the point of cheating if you never even had any intention of ending things with your girlfriend”

I can honestly relate to that, but my story is different. Anyway! This is such a good book with a good story of love and friendship.
