5 Things to Know About: Choosing You by Allie Everhart

5 Things to Know About:  Choosing You by Allie Everhart

1.  This is a book that I randomly purchased for my kindle because I thought the cover was cute.  But really, isn't it?  I know it's bad to judge books by their covers but sometimes I just can't resist.

2.  This is the story of Jade, an eighteen year old girl who has overcome a rough home life, graduated valedictorian of her high school class, and has received a prestigious scholarship to go to college at an East Coast University.  She doesn't drink (because her mother was addicted to pills and alcohol) but does her best to make friends and be a typical college student.

3.  On the day that Jade moves in to her dormitory she and Ryan (who is like a brother to her) meet Garret, a pretty boy swimmer who is completely unlike any guy who she's ever spent time with.  He's rich, a serious athlete, and she's sure that he's used to getting whatever he wants.  Or is he?  She denies his advances at first but the two settle into a comfortable friendship.  She reminds him constantly that they are "just friends".  But as the two get to know each other better and better and Garret's wealthy parents get involved, will the two be able to still see each other?

4.  I thought Allie did a really good job pacing this novel.  The development of Jake and Garret's "friendship" moves at just the right pace to make it ridiculous.  I do think the two of them are kidding each other at some points but in a realistic way where you're like, "Ahhhh young love!" haha.

5.  Let's be real here.  There is a pretty serious cliffhanger at the end of this book and I am so so curious to find out what happens next.  The Jade series is a long one and I can't wait to keep reading and find out what happens to Jade and Garret.

Take care,
Marian
