The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott

Summary:(from back of book) everyone knows the unwritten rule: You don't like your best friend's boyfriend. Sarah has had a crush on Ryan for years. He's easy to talk to, super smart, and totally gets her. Lately it even seems like he's paying extra attention to her. Everything would be perfect except for two tiny details: Ryan is Brianna's boyfriend, and Brianna is Sarah's best friend. Sarah forces herself to avoid Ryan and tries to convince herself not to like him. She feels so guilty for wanting him, and the last thing she wants to do is hurt her best friend. But when she is thrown together with Ryan one night, something happens between them. It's wonderful...and awful. Sarah is torn apart by guilt, but what she feels is nothing short of addiction, and she can't stop herself from wanting more.
Review: I have really enjoyed a lot of Elizabeth Scott's books in the past and this one was no exception. This was a light romantic read, but it also dealt a lot with Brianna and Sarah's friendship, which was far from perfect. I flew through this books 210 pages in a day. Although, the plot was fairly typical, it didn't detract from the story at all. The plot was paced well and I was hooked and dying to know how the story ended. What made this story really stand out for me was the characters. Sarah, Brianna and Ryan were all very well written characters. I felt like I was reading a story about real people. Sarah was a main character that was very easy to relate to, despite having never been in her situation. She is a very genuine character, and it made me like her and root for her even if she didn't always make the smartest choices. Anyone who has enjoyed Scott's other books should read this one. it is a sweet story of love and friendship that readers of romantic and heartfelt stories will enjoy.
