From Goodreads:

That Boy is a fun, contemporary romance about falling in love with your best friend.

You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. 

There's Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it’s windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He’s the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He’s pretty much irresistible.

Equally crush worthy is Phillip. Adorable, sweet Phillip, who I have known since birth.  Phillip has dark hair, a perfect smile, brown eyes, and the sexiest voice I have ever heard. He’s the boy I talk to every night before I go to sleep. The boy who rescues me, the boy who can read my mind, the boy who is always there for me, the boy who tries to keep me out of trouble, the boy who irritatingly keeps getting hotter, and whose strong arms always seem to find their way around me.  And when he gives me that grin, I can never say no.

One boy will give me my very first kiss.
One boy will teach me to make out.
One boy will take me to prom.
And finally, one boy will ask me to marry him.
They will both be my best friends.
But only one of them will be the boy I fall in love with.
Only one of them is That Boy.

My Thoughts:

This was the first book I've ever read by Jillian and I have to say, I can't wait for me. 

I love the way this book starts out. It moves very quickly and flows so well. I love reading about Jadyn's life from such a young age and seeing things progress. As an adult reading through someone's life when they are a lot younger than you, you would think that it would be boring or hard to read. However, the way that Jillian writes is extremely witty and can't wait to see the antics that Jadyn , Phillip, and Danny get into next. 

Jillian has such a clever way with words. I literally laughed and cried throughout this book. There are some things that are very unexpected and heartbreaking that happen. 

You just feel so connected to all the characters in Jadyn's life, including her parents, friends, and friends parents. I couldn't help but get wrapped up in her life.

The triangle between Jadyn, Danny, and Phillip is great. They're all such great friends and have such a good connection with each other. Even though at first Jadyn hated Danny when he moved into the neighbor.

I really just love this book. I can't wait for more. (I hope there's more!) I would recommend this book to everyone who I know. You can't help but to fall in love with this book.

Buy it! You'll love it!
