pink heart scrollI Don’t Want to be Friends is Book 4 in the Just Friends series. The Just Friends series is a set of four stories centred around the friendship of a group of college students in Boston. We follow the friends as they start their next adventure in life; moving home, starting college, finding new friends and new loves and this is all mixed in with life’s everyday hurdles. The books are part of a series and to fully appreciate the full enjoyment of the stories I would highly recommend reading them all in order:
Let’s Just Be Friends, Friend Zone, My Best Friend’s Boyfriend, I Don’t Want to be Friends.

It was great to be back in Boston to the young friends we have learned about in this series. This story focuses on Haley and her dilemma with her very confused emotions revolved around the Williams brother; David and Scott. For nearly a year Haley has been dating Scott but when he went away for a few months to work on his internship their relationship cooled and Haley was left hurt and unsure of where she stood with Scott. During these few months Haley and David built up a friendly rapport but when Scott returned Haley was so excited to see him again she welcomed him home with open arms. Seeing his brother return home into the arms of the girl David secretly loved angered him and he thought he knew how Haley’s heart truly felt.

With confused hearts and angered souls the two brothers and Haley were struggling with their emotions. However, there is another victim in this love triangle that is suffering with her feelings towards someone that is already taken.

I loved how the author in this story created two very different brothers, both strikingly handsome but each with their own personality. David the older brother had a devilishly dynamic about him but there was a side to him that appealed to many and he was so astute understanding people and situations. He was also deeply loyal to his family but ultimately when he wanted something he went for it. Scott was more level headed but I felt at times he could be a little selfish.

This was another great instalment in this emotive YA series. I’m certainly not at the age of a YA character but I love reading about the emotive feelings between characters in YA stories as whatever age we are our feelings on life and it’s struggles and complications are pretty much the same.

A gorgeous, sexy, emotive series.
