Friends don’t let friends make the same horrible relationship mistakes twice.
Rion, Amy, and Arielle, the three occupants of first-year dorm Harrison Tower’s Suite 17C have never met before the first day of school, but they soon discover they have one thing in common – being on the wrong end of an epically awful breakup.
Heartbreak sucks, especially when the girls should have seen the trouble coming from a mile away. But there’s no better time than the beginning of college to take charge of your own love life, and nobody better than a roommate to keep you accountable. Over ice cream and pizza their first week, the girls vow never again to date anyone like the assholes who ripped their hearts out and smeared them across the quad.
And that's how the Broken Hearts’ Society of Suite 17C is born.
Now, if only Crash, the tattooed, pierced, and probably stoned guy who works at Rion’s newest job, wasn’t so damn sexy and sweet...
If only Matt, the thoughtful and driven pastor’s kid, would quit being so okay with just being Amy’s friend…
If only Lauren, the innocent California girl with her own set of issues, would stop finishing Arielle’s sentences and invading her dreams…
it would be a lot easier for the girls to keep their promises to the Society and to themselves.
Review Rating: 3.5 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Review: This was a fun summer read. I love a book that features a bit of romance, friendships, and humor. We have three different points of view in this story, and the way the plot and friendship intertwines really made it a blast. The story is well paced, although there are a few points where it's a little slow. The blossoming friendship is a great aspect. However, the story is a little predicable and it wrapped up too easily, in the sense that some of the conflict was resolved without a lot of conflict, if that makes sense.
Amy, Rion and Arielle are memorable characters. They remind me of me and my two best friends, which definitely helped me connect with them and the story. In fact, I'm going to be suggesting this story to both of them.
So while I have a mix of feelings on some parts of the story, overall I really enjoyed it and will be watching for other books from this author.
