You can find of my reviews at Forever 17 Books25 starsI was really looking forward to this read A boy coming between two friends is uite common in the teen years at least as far as I remember and from my personal experience In fact I m surprised it doesn t come up in YA books often to be honest Needless to say I was looking forward to seeing how these characters handled the delicate situation in Anything to Have You The result in 2 words HOT MESSI literally have a whole page of notes on issues I had with this book and I apologize now that this review might be a tad spoiler y to get my thoughts across The overall plot like I mentioned above was good A girl goes to a party with her best friend and fears she might have made a mistake and slept with that BFF s boyfriend And honestly I was enjoying the read for the most part for uite awhile It was around the 40% mark right when things were getting interesting that the book took a terrible HORRIBLE turnThe book starts out from the POV of Natalie Natalie is a uiet girl who prefers to stay in and watch movies with her dad than go out and party like her best friend Brooke I HATED Brooke from page one Seriously Brooke is selfish She wants everyone s attention to always be on her Even though she has a long term boyfriend Aiden she wants to be wanted by every boy in her vicinity She is constantly contemplating cheating on him and doesn t seem to care for him at all only staying with him as someone to fall back on who she knows will pay her the attention she craves She was so superficial She had an obsession with partying and drinking and was bound and determined to get her best friend out to enjoy the rest of their senior year of high school This is all stuff you learn very early in the book about Brooke I m all for characters having issues and being unlikable just to watch them grow and mature but I could not for the life of me stand this girlI didn t mind Natalie s character I mean she was a bit naive and a pushover but I was determined to see potential in her character development We are unsure what exactly transpired the drunken night of the party though it s obvious to us readers I don t condone cheating whatsoever but somehow I found myself rooting for Natalie and Aiden despite his attachment There was some unresolved sexual tension floating between them and you could see how much they clicked together I had my fingers crossed Aiden would wise up and end what needed to end and move on But just when I felt things were getting good for these two the POV suddenly switched to Brooke s at 40% WHAT NOAnd this is where the book failed Brooke s POV At this point we are invested in Natalie so the switch so late in the game did not fit Brooke s POV went back in time a year and highlighted specific events leading up to the present And basically it only succeeded in showcasing even of how horrible a person and friend she was So the next 15% of the book was a recap of sorts of previous events from her perspective I do not like this style at all We see her purposely go after Aiden when it was Natalie who was interested first And we find out that the amount of drinking and partying she does is 10 times worse Hey I fully admit that I may have partook in uite a bit of partying at that age myself but this girl was taking it to a whole new level She d drink during the school week carry a flask around etc And of course flirt with everyone and anyone in the process Let s not forget her jealousy when Natalie the best friend she pushed to get out there and meet boys gets a kiss from a boy not Aiden Instead of being happy for her she gets upset because she feels irrelevant and no one is actively in her face lusting after her Are you kidding me with all thisMoving on we eventually get back to Natalie and I m happier finding myself starting to enjoy the story again Things were getting good and falling into place with even a twist added in And just when I felt like we were getting what I d been waiting for I m sure you can guess what happened We switched back to Brooke Once again we go backwards a bit to check out what we missed on her end in the last couple chapters and then spend almost the entire rest of the book watching her downward spiral And you know what We never got to see her change and mature We never got to see her character development There s no redemption Again I don t condone cheating but she did horrible things to both Natalie and Aiden as well She was no victim She played the part though all the way until the end There was even an implication that everything she was doing to herself was because of the cheating and I did not like that whatsoever She was responsible for her actions and honestly she was heading in that direction way before the scandal The only touch of a change of character for Brooke came in the epilogue What a huge letdown to go through all of that with her just to be told about it not given a chance to be shownI can see why the author chose to make this a novel with a dual POV but if it had to be done it could have been handled in another way than this If we got the switches done consistently from the beginning perhaps If we had gotten of a payoff with Natalie s POV at the end If Brooke hadn t been so despicable until the last page I m not sure but I feel like I might have enjoyed the novel in those casesWeirdly I didn t hate this book completely when it all comes down to it I do love when a read brings out emotions in me even hate of a character It was like a train wreck I just couldn t help but watch I just kept reading and reading And I really did start to like Natalie and Aiden I m just so disappointed we missed out on every payoff we built up to in Natalie s POV s when the story suddenly became about Brooke and less about Natalie So while I had so many issues I can t say this book lacked drama and entertainment Il rogo di Berlino years at least as far as

Free read Anything to Have You ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free review ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Õ Paige Harbison Free read Anything to Have You Nothing should come between best friends not even boys ESPECIALLY not boysNatalie and Brooke have had each other's backs foreverNatalie is the uiet one college bound and happy to stay home. Initial reaction This is the point where I completely and utterly understand the negative reactions taken to this book as my own were uite strong In sum I think this might be Harbison s weakest work to date for a number of reasons It s not just the handling of the themes in this book but also the presentation of the characters and the fact that the lot of it completely misses the mark for what it offers I didn t like the portrayals here among other things Hopefully my full review will get into these measures and why this cast was one I found completely insufferable to the point where the narrative failedFull reviewWriting this review guts me a little because I like Paige Harbison s works and I ll admit that New Girl was rough for me as my first read from her but I still liked it I think the biggest complaint I remember making was that it took a bit for the momentum of the story to get going but ultimately it was a valuable experience for the way things came together especially with its function as a Rebecca reimagingThis book was a different story On one hand it could deserve kudos for taking an unflinching look at several tough topics drinking drugs sex infidelity view spoilerpregnancy hide spoiler
