Review of Not Just Friends by Kate Hoffmann
Published: May 1, 2012
4 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: "Come to Camp Winnehatchee!
For new experiences. (With boys!)
For the great outdoors. (Where you can find yourself in nature. With boys! )
For adults-only activities. (Best shared with men! )
For venture capitalist Adam Sutherland, attending Camp Winnehatchee’s reopening was a no-brainer. He’s even reuniting with former camp counselors to chip in and help revive the camp. What he isn’t expecting is to find a girl sleeping in his bunk. Or that the girl is none other than Julia McKee, who went from shy and awkward Good Girl to scorching-hot babe....
But the good girl is all gone...and she’s headed off to Paris! But before she goes, Julia intends to show her bad-boy childhood crush just how to put the “wild” back into the wilderness! And this time, he’ll be the one left wanting more...."
Not Just Friends by Kate Hoffmann is a unrequited love story about growing up and finding what truly makes you happy. I love how this story unfolds with flashbacks and insight into the characters lives when they were younger and learned how to grow up at summer camp. I also love how the story revolves around something so pure as summer camp which brings these now adults back together and integrated into one another's lives. Julia I feel is secretly still a very insecure young girl she once was when it comes to anything involving Adam. And Adam I see as this once playboy turned gentleman when he finally has Julia back into his life. Together Julia and Adam are fun characters who just have always know how to be together, it's refreshing. I give Not Just Friends by Kate Hoffmann 4 smirks because the purity and love of this story cannot be ignored.
