What’s the worst thing you could hear your best friend, who you’ve always secretly been in love with, say? That would be telling another girl he could envision her being his wife.

I just about died when Gannon Raferty, the boy who used to borrow my pencils in elementary school, said that to the lead of the reality dating show he was cast on. Though he didn’t win her heart, he’s now a bona fide sensation when he returns to our college and moves back into the off-campus house we share.

The torch I carry for him has always been one-sided; I’m head-over-heels, soulmate-level into him while he views me as a lovable kid sister. So I decide this school year will be the one where I move on, where I finally attempt to open my heart to another. After all, if he can make declarations of undying love to someone he just met, but not to me, that’s the biggest wake-up call I could ever receive.

Until one night early on in the semester, when we accidentally sleep together. Because of course he’s going to confess his feelings now, when I was ready to give up on there ever being an us.

But just as Gannon starts admitting exactly what I’ve always wanted to hear, I get devastating news. And suddenly, I don’t want to risk losing him as a best friend. I’ve already lost too many people I love, and am on the brink of adding one more to that list.

If our romance goes south, I don’t how I’ll ever come back from it. Not only the crushing heartbreak, but the fact that we can never go back to how we were again.


This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Carrie Aarons!

Just About Over You is a standalone New Adult Romance set in the same world as Then You Saw Me. Just About Over You tells the story of Amelie and Gannon.

Carrie Aarons did it again! Just About Over You was another amazing Romance book. As usual, Carrie Aarons created a well-written, fast-paced book with interesting characters and a beautiful story. I really liked getting to know Amelie and Gannon, and reading about them. This book wasn’t just about them, but it also dealt with some heavy topics such as death, cancer and dysfunctional families. It makes the story even more interesting, and relatable.

Just About Over You has a dual POV, you read in Amelie and Gannon’s perspective. I really liked reading in both POVs and getting to know the characters better. What I love about this Just About Over You, is that this book has some amazing tropes like forced proximity, childhood friends to lovers and slow burn. The perfect mix for a good New Adult Romance!

Just About Over You was such a good read, and I really enjoyed it. Carrie Aarons is such a talented author, and she’s so good at writing different tropes. I did have some struggles with reading about cancer, because it hits close to home, but besides that I really liked reading this book. I also really liked the reference to the Rogue Academy series! I’m so happy that I got to read Amelie and Gannon's story and I'm looking forward to reading Bevan's story!
