He's looking at me like—well, like he wants to look at me.
Like he likes what hes sees, and he's smiling and his eyes are so blue, even in the faint flow of the porch light they shine, and I nod dumbly, blindly, and then grope for the door handle, telling myself to look away and yet not able to do it."Sara," he says, softly, almost hesitantly, and my heart slam-bangs, beating hard, and this is what it's like to want someone you can't have. To want someone you shouldn't even be looking at.
Aw, this book was so cute and funny! I've never read anything by Elizabeth Scott before so I decided to give The Unwritten Rule a shot based on the synopsis and all I have to say is that it is definitely not a let down.
The Unwritten Rule is about two girls who are best friends and both want the same guy. Sara has always had a thing for Ryan, but Brianna ends up being his girlfriend. Ryan likes Brianna, but not in the way he likes Sara. I thought Brianna and Sara's relationship was a very hurtful one. Brianna constantly put Sara down and made it clear that Sara should be kissing her feet for being friends with her. Sara is such a sweet person that even though she is in love with Brianna's boyfriend and knows Brianna can be mean, she still wants to believe the best about her. Things take a turn though when Ryan begins to show his feelings for Sara and makes it clear he doesn't want Brianna and has always liked Sara.
I read The Unwritten Rule in one sitting. It was very fast paced and easy going that I just couldn't stop reading. Elizabeth Scott got right to it and her chapters are not long at all. I got butterflies while reading and remembered what it was like to have a high school crush. It definitely put me in a teen state of mind and I was loving every minute of it. I loved this book so much, that I went ahead and bought three more books by Elizabeth Scott. It was nice taking a break from all the paranormal books I read.
The Unwritten Rule is a perfect book if you're looking for a quick and simple read that will make you smile and ache for the main characters at the same time. I loved it and cannot wait to devour Elizabeth Scott's other books.
5 out of 5 Stars!
