Kissing In Cars by Sara Ney - Review

The first word that comes to mind to describe this book is adorable!!  The story, the characters and even the cover are all absolutely adorable!!  It was a great feel-good story about a teenage relationship that was very realistic and not overly agnsty, (which is typical of YA books).  

I enjoyed getting into the heads of the two main characters with the alternating point of views.  The main female character, Molly wasn't a "damsel in distress" type.  She was confident (most of the time) and knew what and who she wanted, all the while being a typical teenage girl. Weston, the main male character was VERY confident, maybe too confident at times.  Well, he is a teenage boy who is very attractive (of course!) and the high school hockey star.  It's hard not to be.  But he was also very sweet and made me swoon quite often!!  How come boys weren't like that in my high school, college, or even post college??? Oh right, that's why it's called fiction.  ;)

I loved the funny, quirky quotes at the beginning of each chapter that related to one of the characters.  One of my favorites was:

 "Sometimes your Knight in Shining armor is really just a douchebag in tin foil - Jenna, who saw it on pinterest".

The ease of the writing and the flow of the story kept me invested and I didn't want to put it down.  If I could have stayed up all night reading, I would have.  Instead I took every opportunity I had to read.  Before work, during lunch, after work, at the car dealership....  Waiting to get my car serviced was a lot less painful when I had this book to keep me company.

This is definitely a story I will re-read whenever I need a pick me up.  You can't help but get in a good mood while living in Molly and Weston's world.
