When Zoey Jones's long-time boyfriend, Finn, cheats on her--kissing a girl he "just can't resist"--he gives Zoey a "Free Pass," telling her she can kiss any guy she wants. Finn is so cocky and sure of their relationship that the arrangement seems perfect. He's not worried Zoey will fall for another guy, and he's itching to get rid of his feelings of guilt.
But the thing is, Zoey knows exactly who she wants to kiss--longs to kiss-- Finn's best friend, Riley. But, she wants the kiss too much. She knows that. So, she resists the "Free Pass." Still, she's pushed into it when Finn loses a bet to Riley, and Riley wants his payment--a kiss from Zoey.
Short! Took less than an hour to read, but was worth the time. It is clean and a very easy YA read. The story is high accessible in terms of topic and characters. Every girl at some point falls for someone who is considered "off limits". Zoey struggles with her sudden realization that Riley, her boyfriend's best friend, has an interest in her and has for years. Her emotions are believable and the roller coaster of emotions she experiences carry you right along with her. My stomach twisted when she learned what finn was doing and then the book is over.
That was a shock! You get to the good part, the part where Zoey and Riley are finally admitting how they feel, and it's over. Just over. I wanted more and while I know there is more, I think this was entirely too short. It is well written and I enjoyed the ride, but I wanted more. Total cliff hanger for an ending!
