Over Us, Over You by Whitney G.

Subject: Delete this message after you read it…

Dear Hayley,

I’m assuming you’re still hungover, so I’ll make this brief.

Last night, you slipped under my sheets (without my permission), and we almost had sex. I got the hell out of the bed once I realized it was you, and I took you home.

That’s the story.

The end.

Period.

Just in case you’ve forgotten, you’re my best friend’s little sister. We will never be anything more. (We can’t be anything more.) Our previous friendship is still unresolved–or “over” in your terms, so I’d prefer if we worked on becoming ‘just friends’ again since you’re in town.

Nonetheless, I’m not a man who leaves questions unanswered–even the drunken ones, so to properly close our inappropriate conversation:

1) Yes, I liked the way your lips felt against mine when you were on top of me.
2) Yes, I do “prefer” rough sex, but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t rough with you.
3) No, I had no idea you were still a virgin…

This message never happened,

We were too young, but for the record, I’m pretty sure I damn near loved you, too.” 

Corey and Hayley have been friends for years, but it was always a brothers best friend/brothers little sister relationship. We get their history between flashbacks and see how they ended up not talking anymore.

New Whitney G. books make me so freakin’ happy! And I like the best friend’s forbidden sister trope. Sadly, I didn’t love this one as much as I hoped that I would.

I really couldn’t get myself to really like Haley. She had everything handed to her by her brother. And I mean everything, house, car, job, etc. The girl had no work ethic or really even needed one. It just seemed really unrealistic and made it hard to connect with her character.

I thought that Corey was great. I liked him soo much better than Haley. It felt like he had way more to lose than Haley did with them being in a relationship. My only issue was that he didn’t fight for her against Johnathan.

The ending seemed a little rushed, but overall the story was just okay. I didn’t hate it but I sure didn’t love it.
