He’s looking at me like – well, like he wants to look at me. Like he likes what he sees, and he’s smiling and his eyes are so blue, even in the faint glow of the porch light they shine, and I nod dumbly, blindly, then grope for the door handle, telling myself to look away and not yet able to do it.
“Sarah,” he says, softly, almost hesitantly, and my cœur, coeur slam bangs, beating hard, and this is what it’s like to want someone toi can’t have. To want someone toi shouldn’t even be looking at.
Sarah is in quite the predicament. She’s riding that rollercoaster of first l’amour – the pain, the exhilaration, the ups and downs. Only problem is, she’s doing it solo – unrequited style. She’s been in l’amour with Ryan since the eighth grade, but now he’s dating her emotionally stunted best friend, Brianna, and Sarah is forced to stumble through each day, the pain of seeing them together pulling at her insides with every seconde that passes.
Brianna has crappy parents who clearly don’t want her around, and Ryan seems to make Brianna feel like she matters to someone. At least, that’s how it looks to Sarah, which is why Sarah is so hell bent on keeping her feelings completely and totally to herself. How could she take Ryan away from Brianna, when she has so little to start with?
Besides, there’s no way Sarah could compete with the sassy, sexiness that is Brianna – and Brianna makes sure Sarah knows it every single day. Brianna might have crappy parents, but that’s no excuse for the way she treats those around her. Its obvious to the reader that Ryan is nothing plus than a self-esteem booster for Brianna, and while she might actually l’amour Sarah, she doesn’t know how to montrer it. I couldn’t help but wonder if Brianna only kept Sarah around to make herself feel better.
But then, it seems, Ryan sees through Brianna’s dance, and decides to take his affections elsewhere – right into the garden of Sarah! Turns out, Ryan has kind of been in l’amour with Sarah for ages, but got all caught up in the whirlwind that is Brianna and time just got away. But he wont stand for that anymore. He wants Sarah, and nothing – nothing – will stand in his way.
Not even Brianna, when she walks in on Ryan and Sarah lying curled up together in Sarah’s bed.
The Unwritten Rule is interesting exploration through the rules of dating and friendship. Were Ryan and Sarah wrong to pursue each other when Brianna was still so clearly caught in the middle. Did they consider her feelings enough? With the way Brianna was treating the pair of them, should they have considered her feelings at all? When is it okay to break the rules of friendship for matters of the heart? These are all questions I asked myself repeatedly throughout this story.
Sarah and Ryan are both likable characters, but I found Brianna to be shallow, callous and difficult to read. She’s clearly got some emotional issues, but the way she treats those around her makes my stomach squirm. You’d think, with her accueil life being so terrible and all, she’d value the l’amour of her Friends a little more.
The Unwritten Rule is a accueil run for Elizabeth Scott. This is a great, contemporary chick lit read!

Teaser Quote: “I wasn’t happy with you? Brianna says. “Almost eight weeks, Ryan. And then toi go and – ” she glares at me. “Is this my anniversary present? toi could have at least picked someone decent. Someone I’d believe toi want and not just who toi used to make yourself feel better.”

A good book on your shelf is a friend that turns its back on toi and remains a friend. ~Author Unknown


A book is the only place in which toi can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, ou explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy. ~Edward P. Morgan


The worth of a book is to be measured par what toi can carry away from it. ~James Bryce

Seeing as I haven't posté an article here yet I thought I'd type up a little something. This'll be a liste of livres that I read and some mini reviews of them; seeing as there are a lot, I will be utilizing my reviews from 'Goodreads'. Some reviews will be cut short to keep the length down.
Some reviews will have spoilers.

First and foremost, I l’amour Lex. She's sassy, funny, and sarcastic. She also was all head over heals for Driggs. toi can tell she likes him, but it doesn't turn the story into some silly stupid romance novel, basically it didn't obstruct the plot. I really really loved,...
