Saving It
Eden: Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that…Josh: Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing…with anyone but her.Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book is what happens when American Pie meets Friends with Benefits. It contains two best friends, plenty of angst, and lots and lots of sex talk. Reading this might have you looking at your best friend in a different light!

When Josh asks her to help him lose his virginity—no, not by her—she ends up saying yes. Now that they’re trying to look for the lucky girl to pop Josh’s cherry, they’re both starting to see things they’ve never noticed about the other before. But really, the truth is they’re starting to acknowledge the things they pretended not to notice about the other.Eden and Josh’s friendship was adorable. So was Josh and Abraham’s, his other best friend, and Eden and Molly’s, Eden’s other best friend. They annoy each other at times but at the end of the day, they love them anyway.Eden and Josh can tell each other literally everything and know they will always have each other’s backs. That’s the reason why they’re so afraid to take the leap. Their friendship is so solid and they’ve been there for each other for so long that if they complicate it with hooking up and being more than friends, they might risk losing each other it all goes south.I think since the whole story was focused on their burgeoning romance amidst the whole ‘Josh loses his virginity’ plan, we didn’t see much of who Josh and Eden were as people, only glimpses. I would have liked it more if we saw that, like their families. All I know is Eden is annoyed with her little brother, Josh’s mother has a boyfriend and she’s out a lot.The ending was cute though!!! Josh, so adorable with his secret obsession.Saving It was a quick, fun read with great friendship and a cute romance that young adult readers who enjoy the friends to lovers trope will enjoy.Tropes: Friends to Lovers, Childhood Friends, WingmanPOV: First Person, Dual POVStandalone: Yes*ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

The pair then developed feelings for each other, and once they got over the hurdles of admitting their feelings, and transitioning from being friends to being more than friends, they made a cute couple.

It didn't wow me as much as I'd hoped, and I ended up having similar problems with the story as I did with Monica Murphy's other book, but it was an enjoyable read.One of the things I liked most about Saving It was how real Eden and Josh's friendship was. I truly felt like they knew each other and had been close friends for a long time, which made the scenes between them much more enjoyable.As it happened with Daring the Bad Boy (another book by this author I read recently), the male POV worked better than the female for me, but I still liked Eden enough. She was fun and I enjoyed how worried she was about not coming out as a pimp while she helped Josh find the perfect candidate to lose his virginity with.Eden and Josh took their time figuring out their feelings for each other, and most of their scenes were super cute. I also liked how realistic the portrayal of first time was here.My biggest complain is probably the repetition. Eden and Josh's chapters could get really repetitive, which took me out of the story from time to time. And even though the romance was cute, I still wanted to see more chemistry between the two of them.Overall, Saving It is a nice read for fans of the BFFs falling in love trope.

Watching Eden and Josh squirm a bit as they navigated the waters of figuring out their feelings and fending off other would-be pursuers while still remaining loyal wingmen was of course half the fun!I really enjoyed seeing Josh and Eden finally get together. I think my one wish would have been to see even more of their personalities shine through so we could really see what their outside interests were, their quirks, etc. But this was a cute, fun read that's perfect for someone looking for something light. 3/5 stars.

He wants to lose his virginity before he starts college. He isn't very good at choosing the right girls, so he wants Eden to make him a list of potential girls. Josh has always been the commitment type, but he is desperate to lose it and is willing to try other methods.Eden is reluctant to help Joshua. His plan makes her sound like a pimp, but Josh has his ways of persuading her. It's not pimping, it's like being a host of the bachelor. After some persuasion, she agrees to help.The list of girls is made and Josh starts to flirt. High school is a confusing time, but now the sex bug has been planted these two begin to look at each other differently. They begin to notice the more than friends part of each other. They both try to avoid anything that could damage their friendship, but their thoughts become less platonic. Eden and Joshua are perfect for each other, but it's not always easy to see what's right in front of you.This is a cute romance novel with lots of frustration and a perfect ending. It's funny, sweet and addictive.I've read quite a few books by Monica Murphy and I'm a huge fan. Her books tick all the right boxes for me. My favourite being Fair Game. I was so excited to read Saving it and I'm so glad it didn't disappoint. I can't get enough of this author, and I always look forward to what she will come up with next.Easy 5-stars out of 5.*ARC received in exchange for a fair review*

I enjoyed having both Josh and Eden's points of view and I felt like their voices were true and realistic for their ages. Yes, they're immature. Yes, they overreact. But they also feel passionately and deeply, because didn't we all when we were teenagers? Didn't it feel like the end of the world when our crush didn't notice us or if you didn't feel like you quite fit in? There were some very sweet and funny moments when these best friends start to see each other in a new light. It was predictable with some other boy/girl drama and the inevitable push away, but if you're looking for an easy and cute YA romance, you don't want to miss Saving It!*I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    Monica has written another sweet YA romance that has you wishing your high school life was theirs. LOLThe burb pretty much tells you what you to expect in this story. Josh and Eden have been best friends for what seems like forever. And no, there has never been any underlying feelings that either of them have for the other. Until Josh drops the bomb of wanting Eden's helping losing his V card, just not with her. This whole situation has Eden and Josh looking at each other in a different light.

Until Josh drops the bomb of wanting Eden's helping losing his V card, just not with her. This whole situation has Eden and Josh looking at each other in a different light. They have always talked about their relationships with each other but have never really gotten into the sexy, hot details of those relationships. And now they are talking about it, they are beginning to view each other differently than just friends.What I enjoyed most was watching these two battle themselves with what they were thinking and feeling. Being best friends for so long, it's hard to make that adjustment, especially if you aren't sure that the other is thinking the same thing. Neither want to lose their friendship and tipping the scales to more than friends has the potential to do that.Monica wrote a cute story with characters that are relatable for YA readers. If you want a simple story with a bit of YA angst, this is your book.

Each of them were so humorous in their own way with their fun personalities. Even when I wanted to smack their heads together at their stubbornness, I still loved them. I think of the best things about this book was that it felt like I was a teenager while reading. Sometimes, I find that adults have a hard time writing teens. They try too hard and make them sound incredibly stilted. Or try to throw in weird lingo that was cool in the 90s. Monica Murphy knows how to write teenagers. Sometime tells me she probably has teens herself. Although I'm confused. Don't teenagers text each other anymore? Or is it all about that Snapchat? Which I honestly still haven't figured out. Gosh, I'm old. *insert grey haired grandma emoji here*Another positive to this book was the POV switching back and forth. It switched from Josh to Eden in the middle of chapters. Now normally, that would infuriate me and I'd probably chuck the book at a wall. Not with this. I seriously loved the way the format was. I felt more bonded to the characters because I got to read both sides of their story.Honestly, you guys got to check this book out. It's so endearing and heartfelt. I just feel so fuzzy after reading this. I honestly want to go back and re-read it because I loved it that much. I hope we got a Molly and Abraham story! I liked those two. Come November, I'm going to get me a physical copy of this book because I just loved it.

They're so freaking adorable and aaahhh I love their friendship so much. I was shipping them so hard. They're so perfect for each other AND WHY ARE THEY TAKING SO LONG TO CONFESS THEIR FEELINGS FOR EACH OTHER???How I felt when they finally kissed:But then Eden gets scared and stops talking to Josh and then they fight. I WAS SO ANGRY AT EDEN BECAUSE WOW MY SHIP WAS SAILING BUT THEN SHE SANK IT. Fortunately, she gets back together with Josh after he confesses his love (awe) and gives her a rose on stage at the winter formal.Buuuut I've seen this mad-at-each-other-then-got-back-together scene in a lot of YA books, and I'm starting to get tired of it. Let me list some books with similar endings.• Zenn Diagram• Eliza and Her Monsters• When Dimple Met Rishi(and a couple of other books but I don't remember their titles. Sorry, I'm very forgetful :P)Also Abraham and Molly are awesome friends. They'd do anything for Josh and Eden and it really warms my heart to see how they always support them.Final thoughtsA short, fun read with some cute romance that I highly recommend!

I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked ReadsYoung Adult age-range: 14+ due to swearing and sexual content4 Stars overall. 5 Stars for actual young adult readers3 stars for adult readers. As a sucker for a page-turning young adult book, I won't lie by saying I didn't sit down and devour Saving It from page-one until the end. However, I need to state I read it quickly for two reasons. One, I wanted to know where the novel was going to go, even knowing the ending destination. Two, I knew I better read feverishly so the plot itself didn't sway my overall enjoyment- meaning, if I paused, the novel would have given me pause. I will explain in the bulk of my review. Best friends all through high school, Eden and Josh have had quite a few relationships, never once contemplating getting together. Josh is a virgin, never successfully sealing the deal in his past relationships, so he asks the one person who knows him better than anyone to help him pick the right girl. As you can guess, the plot pretty much goes on the path you'd expect, so I won't dive too deeply into the plot, as a way to avoid spoilers. From the teen perspective, young adults will devour this book due to the content. From the adult perspective, adults will become frustrated, especially from a feminist standpoint. As a feminist, wincing at the list of girls, I read it from a perspective other than my own. At the same time, I wanted an adult voice in the book to offer advice these children so badly needed. Authentic, Eden and Josh and the rest of the cast of characters do, in fact, act like actual teenagers. So I kept an open mind, remembering how I operated eons ago. Hormones fluctuating, irrational as the sector in the brain dealing with sound decision-making won't mature until the age of 25, peer pressure, and emotionally unsure why they feel as they do. So I applaud the author for writing characters who act/react/behave/sound as actual teenagers, instead of the adult voice of the writer. In a nutshell, there isn't a whole lot going on with the plot that isn't in the blurb. The angst is a 'will-they, won't-they' tension, with added miscommunication, and a bunch of just waiting around until Eden and Josh decide to give it a try. It's not truly an evolution for the character development, but just the indecisive nature of teenagers (and their older counterparts). If you're an adult like me, who adores the young adult genre, I'd suggest a sample. I enjoyed it, writing this review immediately, knowing if I took a few minutes, I'd spiral down the critique path and I refuse to go there. Do you know what I mean? In the now, it's awesome. Given five minutes of contemplation, the responsible adult in me wants to go round up a roomful of teenagers and engage in a real chat. FYI: I'm not a prudish adult against 'losing it/saving it'- it's the emotional impact of having an agenda and not caring 'who' you lose it to. On the flip side, feeling bad for the person chosen to fulfill an agenda. Virginity isn't a physical thing- it's a social construct with emotional impact. If you're reading this review as a parent, I would highly recommend this to teenagers who need a dose of escapism/romance- not learning experience, but a naughty yet innocent read that accurately portrays exactly what teens are experiencing on a daily basis when it comes to acting on their sexual urges.

She’s giving him advice on initiating contact with the girls, she’s taking him shopping for clothes, and acting as a sounding board as Josh shares his progress. They’ve been best friends for years so why is she suddenly bothered by Josh’s attention to other girls? Josh is tired of dodging locker room talk with the guys when the subject turns to sex and is determined not to start college a virgin. He just needs to find a girl and get his first time over with. He and Eden talk about everything so what better person to help him, right? But he can’t talk to these girls like he talks to Eden and the closer he gets to what he thought he wanted… the more he can’t get Eden out of his head. Saving It was all kinds of sweet and funny, filled with real talk and aww moments. Both Josh and Eden were just so incredibly likable. I loved the alternating points of view and getting both their voices was perfect for this story. And I appreciated the spotlight on a strong girl/boy friendship and their hesitancy to do anything that could damage it. Both Josh and Eden struggled with their feelings for each other, certain that it was one-sided, even as it was obvious to their friends that they belonged together.Speaking of their friends, they play a big role and, while Eden’s friend Molly was underutilized, it was Josh’s friend Abraham that almost stole the show. I thought he was a bit obnoxious at first (the loud, jokey and crass best friend) but Abraham totally grew on me and proved himself to be a great friend to both Josh and Eden. Way to go, Abraham!While there were times when I felt the guy’s dialogue didn’t ring 100% true (do teenage guys actually notice a girl’s “tiny waist” or ask a girl how she thinks her first time will make her feel?) it didn’t stop me from enjoying Josh and Eden slowly stumbling toward each other. These two just gave me the warm fuzzies – their constant phone calls and Snapchats, their inside jokes and their bickering, and their utter devotion to one another. Readers who enjoy a friends-to-more story will fall in love with Eden and Josh. Note: I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher. This does not change my opinion of the book or the content of this review.This review originally appeared at Girl Plus Books.

The problem is that they were trying to find someone for Josh to lose his virginity to before heading off to college when they made this discovery. Neither one of them wanted to admit it to the other and risk losing the friendship that they cared so deeply about.You definitely have to put your high school hat on in order to enjoy this book. Otherwise it will seem pretty immature and shallow with all of the obsessing about sex and losing ones virginity. As someone who is outside that genre I tried to put myself back in high school and I remembered how emotions and hormones ran high with that population and it helped me to relate to the characters in this book a little more.Josh and Eden's friendship was cute and the dual point of view was a great way to get to know both characters. At times I found it a little repetitive but for the most part I enjoyed their journey. Of course I was routing for them to come clean about their feelings and get together. Who doesn't like a good friends to lover story.I think Saving It would be best enjoyed by readers of a similar age to Josh and Eden or maybe slightly younger. Teens who are going through similar thoughts and emotions would probably appreciate it most. Although it was somewhat predictable and I am no longer in that age demographic I still found it entertaining.

Most of the time, books look at this from the female perspective so it was really cool for me to get the teenage boy viewpoint. I also loved how genuine this book was. The situation Eden and Josh find themselves in could happen anyone anywhere in the world. Eden and Josh are a great match and their connection and friendship is apparent from the start. They are great, true friends to each other and I loved that about them. The fear of ruining a life-long friendship, the pressures from their tight-knit group of friends; everything they go through is extremely relateable. I kept waiting for something over dramatic to happen as it often does with this genre but we get nothing of the sort. What I did want to see was a little more romantic chemistry between them. Part of the reason this is somewhat neglected is that it takes these two a long time to come to terms with their potential feelings. But I wanted more than just a few comments here and there about how attractive the other looked in their clothes. For a couple that had such a strong emotional connection, I just wanted those "swoon" moments to happen a little more often than they did.Fans of the BFF to more trope will truly enjoy this refreshing and genuine romance.

    I love friends-to-lovers stories and oh man this one did not disappoint. Being a YA story was amazing too. Made me a bit nostalgic for my high school years. Josh asks his best friend, Eden, to help him find a girl to lose his virginity to. This just leads to all kinds of confusion for the two of them. Jealousy and feelings that they’ve never felt for one another show up and they don’t know what to do with them. I loved Josh and Eden.

I truly believe that your significant other should totally be your friend so I was cheering for these two the whole time. And so were all their friends. Every emotion that happened on these pages I felt. Eden’s self-doubt;Josh’s hesitation because he didn’t want to lose Eden in his life. All the teenage angst was palatable, jumping off the pages and I love every minute of it. I received an advanced copy of this book and VOLUNTARILY decided to review it

    I am a long time fan of Monica Murphy. Her book One Week Girlfriend is a go to recommended read from me and one the really got me into New Adult books so I was super excited to read a YA Romance from her. I really liked this book. Josh and Eden were so great. Even though at one point Eden annoyed me I was really rooting for them to get it together. Sometimes the secondary characters in a book can annoy me too but I really loved their friends Abraham and Molly too. They really were great friends I am a long time fan of Monica Murphy.

Josh est un jeune homme assez marrant car il est pris dans le piège de ses hormones bouillonnantes et il veut faire comme tous ses potes et être enfin un homme. Il n'est pas complètement vierge dans le domaine car il a déjà eu de nombreuses petites amies mais il n'a jamais atteint la ligne d'arrivée . Comme vous le savez dans les romans VO , on fait une analogie entre les différentes bases à atteindre comme dans un match de baseball et s'il s'est manié la batte , il n'a pas marqué le but ou pu dessiner le V de la victoire. Non lui c'est plutôt le V de la virginité qui s'affiche sur son front. Il avait fait un pacte avec son amie Eden plus jeune et si aucun des deux n'avait passé le cap avant la cérémonie de remise des diplômes, ils le feraient ensemble.La complicité des deux jeunes gens est plus que visible et tous les personnages secondaires sont persuadés que ces deux là finiront ensemble. Il suffirait d'ouvrir les yeux pour voir la vérité en face et se rendre à l'évidence. Grâce aux conseils plus ou moins avisés d'Eden , il va donc se mettre en quête du Saint Graal en espérant ce débarrasser de ce fléau. Mais où est la place de l'amour dans tout ça? Dans ce roman, on sent bien la différence nette entre un homme et une femme. Lui ne semble pas concevoir le fait que coucher avec une fille implique des sentiments. Il visualise l'acte comme un accomplissement charnel et non émotionnel. J'ai bien aimé voir les scènes de son point de vue car j'ai bien rigolé avec lui et son meilleur ami Abraham qui est un sacré numéro , un chaud lapin, un beau parleur mais un ami fidèle.Eden Sumner alias Edes pour Josh est une jeune femme sympathique qui ne rentre pas dans le moule des héroïnes populaires du lycée. Elle apprécie tout le monde et a plusieurs meilleures amies dont Molly qui sera un pilier dans ce roman. Cette dernière saura conseiller à sa façon son amie et l'aider à y voir plus clair. Cependant Eden ne sera pas totalement honnête envers elle non pas par manque de confiance mais surtout par aveuglement . En effet , comment avouer à son amie que Josh pourrait être plus qu'un meilleur ami quand on a des oeillères et qu'on se voile la face. La relation qu'elle entretient avec Josh fait donc jaser mais aussi elle est très adorable car on sent que ces deux là peuvent compter l'un sur l'autre. Comme je le disais précédemment , elle a une autre vision de la perte de virginité et cela est logique étant donné qu'elle est une jeune femme et elle ne conçoit pas de perdre sa virginité de manière anecdotique. Elle a besoin de sentiments et d'engagement.Elle va tout de même accepter d'aider son ami et j'ai adoré lire les différentes étapes qu'elle va lui faire suivre. Entre le relooking, le passage chez le coiffeur et les listes des potentielles candidates, elle ne risque pas de s'ennuyer mais tout cela pourrait lui ouvrir les yeux et peut être lui faire prendre conscience qu'elle se réserve pour Josh sans en avoir conscience. Monica Murphy aborde avec justesse des thématiques propre aux adolescents et sans tomber dans les caricatures ou les extrêmes. Le lecteur ne peut que s'attacher aux personnes principaux mais aussi secondaires et ce dernier va attendre le dénouement final en espérant un happy end .Bref, si vous aimez les romances Young Adult douce et fraîche, je ne peux que vous recommander de lire en VO Saving It, une lecture très sympathique sur le monde et les problématiques de l'adolescence. On passe un bon moment de lecture sans prise de tête ni passé sulfureux et cette légèreté fait du bien.

Eden tries to play matchmaker when her bestie, Josh, decides he can't graduate without losing his v-card. Of course, the girl he's been looking for has been standing there all along, right in front of his adorable face. How long will it take them to figure it out?It's true you've read a similar storyline to this, probably multiple times. But the characters and relatableness they portray keeps it fresh and captivating. I loved so many things about this story, including the fact that it's told in dual POV, which you know is my fave. I had a male best friend in high school, and though we were nothing but platonic (except in sixth grade, and that doesn't really count), I totally get the appeal.I really liked Eden. She was sassy and snarky yet so realistically vulnerable. Of course, Josh was probably the highlight of this book for me. He's gorgeous and athletic and so sweet and funny. He's absolutely perfect book boyfriend material! I love his personality. And the fact that he wears shorts in the winter and drinks orange juice and his one weakness (besides Eden) seems to be The Bachelor."No red rose for her."I love them together. Like, really.He just looked like--Josh. Normal-every-day-Josh. But now he's also the Josh who kissed me for hours. The Josh whose hands were all over my body. the Josh who touched me in a particular way and literally made me see stars.Trust, there's a lot of sexy swoon in here.I also really liked their friend, Abraham. He was hilarious and lots of fun.So what didn't I like? There wasn't much. Some things happen toward the end that I thought didn't really need to happen, like everything with Cole. And some of the things they said, like "do her" seemed a little...I don't know. Do kids in high school say that? *shrugs* What do I know? This is definitely more-mature YA, but I'm sure you already knew that from the title. More-mature YA is more than okay with me, so I really loved that aspect of Saving It.The only other thing I needed? More. Like always, I needed more at the end! I hope Murphy is planning to continue this universe like so many of the other Entangled Crush authors do. I wouldn't mind seeing some of the other characters fall. But mostly, I want more Josh and Edes![image error]This was a fast-paced, fun-filled swoony read with relatable characters that will give you all the feels. Highly recommended!--

It was so fun to see Josh and Eden realize that they had feelings for each other. Eden's reactions to how she started feeling when thinking about John having sex were really entertaining to read. Josh and Abraham are standing there, the both of them immediately scanning me up and down, making my skin go warm. Me? I’ve only got eyes for Josh. Ugh. Stop. But it’s like my brain is telling me can’t stop, won’t stop. Josh is wearing the black shirt and dark khaki pants he tried on earlier at Wavelengths, and he looks damn good, plus with the freshly cut hair, that faint smile curling his lips, and his hands shoved into his front pockets, I’d call him top notch swoon material. This was your typical best friends who like each other but are too afraid to confess their feelings and ruin the friendship, but with the twist of the Josh's plan to lose his virginity before going to college.This might have been fun but it also had its angst, so if you love the perfect combo of both in a book, you need to pick this one up!➳ Order at: Amazon UK ⁕ Amazon US➳ Follow me on: Blog ⁕ Instagram ⁕ Facebook ⁕ Twitter

Monica Murphy captured real teen problems in this book. I have a junior and senior both boys and could literally see every single thing written playing in my mind. Book blurb: Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that...Josh: Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing...with anyone but her.What’s not in the authors discretion of the book was the chemistry. Josh and Edes will slowly discover that the friendship that they’ve always had could be so much more. They are both so intertwined into one another’s lives it’s like having a second family. Are either willing to chance loosing the friendship for the chance to explore something amazing. What happens when they hurt each other as they figure it out. I loved this journey I took into Saving It. The entire book from the first to the last page will have you completely engrossed and rooting for them to give in and be vulnerable to each other. Josh and Eden are very likable even with their imperfections.Written in dual POV my personal favorite. I’d like to thank Monica Murphy and Netgally for letting me read and review!!!

"My friendship with Eden means too much to me to screw it up by....screwing her. We're friends and that's it." Josh and Eden are best friends that are both secretly developing feelings for one another. When Josh decides it was time to lose his big V card he can only think of one person he truly wants to be with. The friends-to-lovers story continues with a will they/won't they scenario as Josh and Eden both try and pluck up the courage to tell one another how they truly feel. I really loved both Josh and Eden, they were both so sweet and were not one tiny bit annoying teenagers, however I did get a bit frustrated with how long it took the pair to officially get together. Josh and Eden made a cute couple and Josh seemed to be so mature for his age. He really was the most perfect guy for Eden. He was also a bit of a romantic, especially when it came to finally getting his girl. I adored the swoony way in which he confessed his love for Eden. It was straight out of a teenage movie. "There's no one else that I'm closer to, that I want to be closer to. Just Eden." I also liked the secondary characters of the story, Abraham and Molly and wondered if they would be getting a book next. In all, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to readers who like young first love and friends-to-lovers romance

I do have say that Josh’s reasoning for wanting to lose his virginity irritated me. Why does Josh worry so much about having sex? Why does he worry what his friends think? Just because he can’t talk about his experiences with his friends, and he feels left out, he wants to have sex. I didn’t buy it. And the more we get to know about him, his words didn’t reflect his actions. He was the relationship kind of guy. He was about more than just the casual hook up. He just needed to figure that out. Overall, I liked SAVING IT. I liked how the author portrayed the friendships, the relationships, and even the jealousy of friends how beginning to see what was right in front of them all along. I’m glad that Eden and Josh were able to finally figure it out. They might not have been each other’s first love, but they did experience some other firsts together - and it was sweet and authentic and awkward and real.

I would highly recommend this book. It’s great from beginning to end.

But when Josh tells Eden he wants to lose his virginity before heading to college and he needs her help choosing a girl to do it with. Eden is not okay with this but after some convincing, she relents and is on board. This is where the story starts to get meat because this is where they start to see one another in a different light. While trying to keep their friendship as just that friends, they are soon discovering that maybe they are into each other a lot more than they let on. I enjoyed this book it was sweet, cute, and funny. I love stories that are not over complicated and I remember being in this same predicament with my guy friend. Hesitating to say you like them for fear of ruining a friendship. Overall the story was good and had me entertained. I will definitely be on the lookout for more by Monica!**ARC via NetGalley.**

This a favorite genre for me, and I always like the sweet love stories that have so much hope and innocence. The writing is wonderful, and the story is full of humor, wonder, and real life teen issues. Monica Murphy is a master at her craft.
