Review of Dreaming About The Boy Next Door by Sarah Sutton

Is being voted Most Likely To: Never Have Their First Kiss by the popular crowd at school the end of the world? Probably not, but I’m still not convinced.

Does it mean that I have to find someone to kiss to ditch myself of the label? No, but I do it anyway.

Is choosing my best friend’s twin brother as my first kiss the best choice? Ha, not in the slightest. But when he walks into his kitchen after midnight shirtless, inspiration strikes.

Even though it’s a bad, bad idea.

Because what is supposed to be a quick, three-second peck of awkwardness in the middle of their dark kitchen turns into however many seconds of pure bliss. I’m talking the kind of kiss in a rom-com that totally would’ve made me blush. The kind that makes your toes curl.

For my first kiss ever, Reed Manning isn’t holding back.

But now he makes it crystal clear: the kiss that was life-changing to me means nothing to him. He’s already got his next girl lined up on his own list of Brentwood High’s most eligible, and it’s not his little sister’s best friend.

Except that kiss totally messed with my brain chemistry, and I find myself thinking about Reed in ways I never have before. In ways my best friend would hate me for.

Even when I shouldn’t, I find myself dreaming about the boy next door.


My Review: 5 STARS

I’ve read all of Sutton’s books and so when I saw that this one was out, I had to have it. Ava and Reed had my attention from the first page, the characters are engaging and so very real. The love story woven perfectly through the story. I loved the conflict, the way everything made the story feel like it was something that could have happened in real life. Ava was adorable and I felt so deeply for her struggle, and then as the story went on, I got caught up in Reed and everything to do with him. An amazingly sweet love story and one that I would very much recommend. These books are most likely to steal your heart!
