99 Days
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Day 1: Julia Donnelly eggs my house my first night back in Star Lake, and that’s how I know everyone still remembers everything—how I destroyed my relationship with Patrick the night everything happened with his brother, Gabe. How I wrecked their whole family. Now I’m serving out my summer like a jail sentence: Just ninety-nine days till I can leave for college, and be done.

Day 4: A nasty note on my windshield makes it clear Julia isn’t finished. I’m expecting a fight when someone taps me on the shoulder, but it’s just Gabe, home from college and actually happy to see me. “For what it’s worth, Molly Barlow,” he says, “I’m really glad you’re back.”

Day 12: Gabe got me to come to this party, and I’m actually having fun. I think he’s about to kiss me—and that’s when I see Patrick. My Patrick, who’s supposed to be clear across the country. My Patrick, who’s never going to forgive me.

This was an enjoyable YA contemporary romance, and as I got further into it I was desperate to know what would happen!

I liked Molly, and I felt sorry for her and the way her mother had spilled all her secrets to the world. I can’t imagine that having your love life turned into a book and having everyone reading your most intimate confessions would be easy! I did think that Molly had done things that maybe weren’t a good idea, or the best thing to do, but it was also easy to see how she made those mistakes. Sometimes you just get wrapped up in the heat of the moment, and common sense goes out the window!

The storyline in this was pretty good, and it improved as it went along. I did wonder what on earth Molly was doing at points though. I mean a love triangle with 2 brothers? Has she read ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’? Dating brothers is never going to be a good idea. At some point you’re going to either end up breaking both their hearts, or you’re going to compare them in bed and possibly find similarities, or you’re going to end up married to one of them, whilst knowing what the other one is like in bed! Talk about a mess!

Anyway, as I’ve said, we got a love triangle in this book, and as we slowly found out just what had gone on as the book progressed, we also started to see some similarities between what had previously happened, and what was happening between Molly and the 2 brothers during this story! Crazy!

The ending to this was pretty good, but I didn’t really want the book to end! I wanted to know more about Molly, Gabe, and Patrick, and I wanted the shenanigans to continue on for a bit longer! I have to say that I’d really like a sequel to this book.
7.5 out of 10
