The Unwritten Rule



By Elizabeth Scott

Summary: Everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like your best friend's boyfriend.

Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, supersmart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two things: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend.

Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants is to hurt her best friend. But when she's thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens. It's wonderful...and awful.

Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself from wanting more...

My Thoughts: I adore Elizabeth Scott's books as I have said many a time! The Unwritten Rule was no exception. I try to take my time reading her books, I like to devour each word, as if I'm actually tasting them. We are introduced to the three main characters, Sarah, Brianna, and Ryan. Ryan is dating Brianna but Sarah likes him. This book really tackles the sensitive subject of liking your friend's boyfriend. It happens to a lot of girls! You just can't choose who you fall for! Well, Sarah tries to keep her feelings at bay, she doesn't want to hurt Brianna but she also longs for Ryan. I didn't really like Brianna too much. She was selfish and didn't really care how Sarah felt about things.

Sarah learns that she needs to just go after what she wants, not sit on the sideline. Things don't always go as planned, nothing is 100% picture perfect. Ryan encourages her to just do what she wants, not what Brianna wants. She learns to grow through him. I really enjoyed this book. I love all of Elizabeth's books and this was just another great one from her. I loved it. So what happens? I love how Scott never just takes the easy way out, things don't always end up perfect and that is what makes her books so great and realistic! Does true love conquer all? Read it if you get the chance, you won't be disappointed.

Overall: Another great one!! If you haven't read Scott's books, go on a binge now and read them all!!

Cover: Its awesome! I love their jeans, and their feet touching. Its so gorgeous.

I've never read any of Scott's books, but I've heard great things about them. I'll have to pick this one up, especially because I enjoy books where the main character gains some confidence over the course of the story.

I also filled out the form for ATW Tours. I thought I had filled out, but knowing me I probably didn't submit it or something. Thanks for letting me know :)

Great review! I can't wait to read this book. Elizabeth Scott is one of my favorite YA writers. I can't wait to see what twist she puts on to her characters at the end.
