Author : T.J.Dell
Synopsis :

Lately Tony has started looking at her in a new way and he emails her all the time. Could it be possible that he is starting to see her as more than his kid sister's best friend? Tony knows Libby McKay is off limits. She's his sister's best friend for crying out loud! But she is also smart, funny, and seriously hot. Plus she's not afraid to get a little sweaty-- on the track that is. Tony can't seem to help himself, besides what's a few emails? The occasional phone call? He can keep things light and friendly-- Can't he? Warning: This book contains some adult content.

Review :
Tony and Libby have fallen in love with each other for a long time. But the age gap is always a matter for Tony. Libby, on the other hand, is desperately want to be with him. But now it isn't just about the age gap which is not a matter at all for her, but Tony is leaving for his study and she also has a thing to do herself. Although they are separated by a thousand miles, but each year will be spent by sending emails, phone calls, etc. Some time Tony will return to his hometown and they could chit-chat and even shared a kiss or two. But this guy who tries to publish a book is always want to wait and wait. However, Libby have waited forever. Then some guys showed up in her life and made Tony couldn't sleep well and couldn't think straight, and wants to punch someone's face. He really has to do something to own her heart back.

Tony and Libby are so lovable. I always give an extra point for a guy who likes to read and has a courage to express what's on his mind into a book. However, sometimes I just want to punch him in the face for being the stupid guy ever. Meanwhile, about Libby, what I can say is that age doesn't define maturity. Although Tony is her best friend's big brother, but it doesn't intimidate her at all. She is a brave girl who believes in herself.

Although it's a light and quick read, it is very entertaining that at some point I think the author should have written extra pages. What I learn from this book is that communication is really a key for every relationship. If you love someone enough, you need to keep in touch with them so you will always know how they are doing, etc. Furthermore, even best friends can turn into complete strangers to one another if they don't build a good communication, vice versa.

Rating : 3.5/5


  1. Kenapa beda 7 thn di permasalahkan ya? Di film2 Amerika ortu lebih suka anaknya ngedate sama cowok seumuran sih, dan disitu aku ga heran karena psikologisnya berbeda. Kalo di Indonesia pasutri beda ampe 10 tahun biasa.

    Berapa umur Libby, Unnie?

    1. bukan beda 7 tahun ky, tapi si Libbynya uda suka Tony sejak dia masih umur 7 tahun.
      Kalo ga salah bedanya misnya si L 16tahun, si T 21 :)
