Paisley Morro has been in love with Eli since they were thirteen-years-old. But after twelve years of only being his best friend and wingman, the heartache that comes from watching him with countless other women becomes too much, and Paisley decides its time to lay all her feelings on the table.
Eli Jenkins has a life most guys would kill for: Dream job, countless women, and his best friend, Paisley, to be the girl he can always count on for everything else. But one conversation not only changes everything between them, it threatens to make him lose the only girl who has ever meant anything to him.
When tragedy strikes his family and Eli is forced to reevaluate his life, he realizes a life without Paisley isn’t a life at all. Only now, he may be too late.
At this point in my blogging "carrier" I have read almost every Molly McAdams book that is available to me. So when I saw the chance to read Changing Everything early I jumped, because I knew I would love it. And I wasn't wrong. What I think I love the most about Molly McAdams is that you can read all her book as Standalones (expect for Deceiving Lies of course) and yet you get a special treat every once in a while when characters from other books make appearences. I love this aspect of the books because its almost like a glimpse into a different aspect of their world.
Changing Everything follows Eli and Paisley, two best friends who's relationhsip is completely one sided. Eli is a ladies man where as Paisley is sitting on the sidelines loving him from afar. But when she confront him about her feelings their realtionhip is tested more than it ever has. I really can't say more than that because it woudl ruin the overall story, but let me just say that Molly does sexual tension LIKE NO ONE ELSE. I love reading these scenes because not only are they hot but they also allow for characters to really develop and express themselves.
I loved these charcters so much, anhd I wish this book was a full length novel and not a novella because I wanted to see more of these characters. Eli is as swoon worthy as any male lead and although he was frustrating at best in the begnning we see his tranformation and I loved that. We get to watch as he grows up and realized what he wants and what he is willing to fight for. Paisley on the other hand was a quiet lead character, and I liked that she was the every girl. Someone who is incredibly likable and yet totally relatetable, but not overly annoying to read.
I love this book so much, and like I said before I just wish that it was a full length novel because I think these characters had more in them and I wanted to see more! Molly you have done it again. Perfection. I cannot wait to read more from you, especially Trusting Liam coming out this summer!
Molly was kind enough to send along a snippit of the book!
Eli, Eli, Eli … bad move.
Here’s a little snippet from CHANGING EVERYTHING for y’all!
“Don’t you have a shirt you can put on?”
Stepping up behind her, I rested my chin on top of her head and picked at the
pastry she’d just pulled out of the bag. “I do, but you woke me up.”
“I woke you up? I’m late. And your head is heavy,” she grumbled.
I put more pressure on her head and she elbowed my stomach. “What’s this?” I
asked, and pointed at the wrapped sandwich she’d just set down.
“There are two sausage English muffins for you.”
“Do they have—”
“Extra cheese? Yes, they do.”
I hugged her waist tightly. “You’re the best.” Grabbing one of the sandwiches, I
unwrapped it and held it in front of her so she could have the first bite before taking my
own. “I forgot it was Sunday,” I mumbled around the food.
She laughed and started to unwrap her own sandwich. “Good thing it was my
week to get food or I’d be sitting at my apartment starv— Wait. If I woke you up, why
are you in jeans?”
“I could’ve walked out here naked.”
Her body went stiff. “You don’t sleep naked.”
I pointed in the direction of my room with my sandwich. “Carrie’s here.”
“The girl from the bar a few weeks ago.”
“There are a lot of girls from O’Malley’s when it comes to you, Eli,” she
“Ouch. The girl from the night of my birthday.”
“Pay,” I growled in warning.
Paisley pushed against the island, trying to move me away. “Move, I need to
“No, you don’t.”
“You have a girl in your bed who is probably as naked as you were five minutes
ago. I should not be here when she wakes up.”
“And you’re my best friend and it’s Sunday morning. This is our tradition and
she’s not going to stop it because I forgot what today was.”
“Eli, let me go!” she hissed and jammed both her elbows into my stomach.
I bent forward as I took a step back. “Fuck, Pay!”
“Language! Let the Oompa-Loompa eat my breakfast, she’ll think you did
something nice for her.” She took three steps away from me before I was able to grab her
hand to stop her. Turning quickly, she stepped back up to me and tried to get in my face.
All five feet of her. “Do you know how horrible you look when you do things like this to
all these girls?” she seethed. “You’re twenty-five, Eli, grow up and stop being such a
whore! Stop treating every girl you meet like all she is to you is your next lay. Stop
letting them all be your next lay! Find someone who you actually want to spend your
time with and—”
“Ohmigod. Are you, like, everywhere?”
Paisley whipped her head to the side to look at Carrie, but I couldn’t take my eyes
off of Pay. Where was this coming from? She’d joked about all the girls I slept with, but
she’d never flipped out on me like this.
“Did I interrupt something?” Carrie gasped and shrieked, “I knew it! You are
Paisley scoffed and met my gaze. “No, he’s not. That should be obvious since I’m
still around and none of the other girls are.”
