For Noah Sullivan being the best friend to a douchebag and player like Jake Nelson has never been easy. It's been a rocky road since kindergarten when Jake duct taped Noah to his chair before recess. With just six weeks to high school graduation, Jake accidentally blows his drunken ass up on his grandfather's tractor, and Noah finds himself immersed not only in a whirlwind of grief, but on a quest to find a mystery girl from Jake's past. 

While cleaning out Jake's room, Noah and Jake's dad make a startling discovery. Instead of the obligatory porn collection or pot stash, they find a ring, but not just any ring. Its half a carat of commitment in a platinum setting-proving even man whores have taste. After Jake's mom pleads with Noah to find the girl who meant so much to Jake, Noah begins a modern day Grail quest to track the girl down.

Since Jake was a notorious player with a legendary collection of trophy panties, Noah finds himself in over his head. There are the usual suspects like Avery, the Ice Princess Jake dated for appearances, or Presley, the school mattress Jake dated for convenience. But the trail begins to point to the most unlikely of suspects: Maddie, the Valedictorian and choir girl who was trying to help the unmotivated jock graduate--the girl who also has surprisingly caught Noah's eye and meddled with his heart. 

Hanging out with Maddie shows Noah a different side of Jake--one that was deeply human and surprisingly douche-free. And the more he tries to solve the mystery of the ring and of Jake, the more Noah starts to discover about himself and of love.

My Review :

so, i never doubt that this is another great story by katie ashley i just never expected to be soooo emotional reading this. i love the humour and my gosh the characters i love them :) 

lets start with Noah, i seriously wish there's a guy like him when i was in high school i mean you can actually feel his character he is really sweet but the side of just being a "17" year old teenager just pops and makes him more adorable! i mean I'm really in love with him :) i felt heartbroken with him when the news of jake's death (i mean we all know this but seriously i wish he didn't die….more on that later) i mean how can you get over something like that losing your best friend in high school right? i think his vulnerability as a person showed how great he is and how grounded his mom raised him. and then the quest for the owner of the ring, i mean when we met maddie we are like very sure it was her but hmmmm not quite expecting the whole jake letter thing! i think thats a brilliant part of the story.

maddie, she is like this perfect goody pastor choir singing valedictorian girl who wouldn't be existing in jake's life. i think her being one of the "players" of the story sweetens the deal ….. there is no such thing as perfect right? and we all have secrets we keep. anyway i just love her, her being the girl Dr Phil just makes me smile every now and then and how noah describes her body I'm cracking up every time. 

jake, how wish he didn't die…..i mean how can he be dead right? but of course ms ashley wrote this story so i don't get so say right? lol but i think i like jake who doesn't right? i mean yeah he has his flaws but yeah my heart broke for him that he won't get to see life ahead of him.

presley, seriously i want more scoop! lol i just wish she gets her HEA i mean she kinda deserve it one way or the other…. and I'm guessing she will :) 

overall this was a very delightful sunday read that had me glued to my kindle for like 5 hours! i can't put it down and i cried, i laugh and fell in love with this story

4.5 stars!!!!! :)
