The Next Forever by Lisa Burstein

The Next Forever (Pretty Amy, #2)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

One night in college can change everything…

Away at college, Amy just wants one night alone without her high school sweetheart, Joe. So when he invites her to go to the library, she heads off on her own instead. How she ended up at a house party with the mysterious bad-boy Trevor is another story…

Joe so isn’t going to the library. He needs space from Amy, too, so he’s decided to rush a fraternity, to get back the swagger he had in high school. But it doesn’t take long for the brothers to invite him to the real rush here the beer is flowing and one particular girl has set her eyes on Joe.

Over the course of one wild night, both Amy and Joe will have to decide if their futures belong with two new people, or whether the next forever will have their first loves in it.

Jen's Review

Didn't realize this was book 2 of this series - it mentions the arrest in this one, but no details - book one is the story of that arrest :) 

Cute short story - I was expecting longer, but it was cute anyways .

Joe and Amy have been friends forever - growing up across the street made things easy. But they weren't always the same people they are now.

Amy has a bad girl vibe inside her. After she was arrested, she gave up her old life. And Joe became her new life.

Now they are in college together, Amy is starting to get bored with the oh so wonderful life she and Joe have. And when Joe drops the bomb and asks her to move in with him, she almost panics.

Joe knows there is something wrong with Amy. They've known each other for so long, he knows everything about her.

He's afraid he's going to lose her, especially now that he wants to venture out and join a frat. A frat she totally disproves of.

Joe asks Amy to go to the library with him while he studies...
On a Friday night?? Yeah, He knew Amy would tell him she'd rather not.
They'll hook up later that night and all will be well.

Except instead of going to the library, Joe sneaks off to the Frat house to start his Rush week..

Of course Amy didn't want to go to the library, but she didn't want to sit in her room either. On her way back to her Dorm, she ran into Trevor. The bad boy that caught Amy's eye. He reminded her of her past, the fun she use to have.

When he offers to take her to a party, she didn't tell him no....

Joe and Amy face many challenges that night - testing their relationship and feelings towards each other.
What they discover, is beyond what either of them ever though would happen :)

See- like I said, Cute story :)
