By: Elizabeth Eulberg
Everyone says girls and guys can't be friends, but that is what Levi and Macallan are.  Completely plutonic.  The only problem is everyone else.  Guys don't want to ask Macallan out because she's always with Levi, and Levi's dates always get jealous of all the time he spends joking around with Macallan.  This leads them to start questioning it too: are they really just friends, or is it something more?

(Unremembered #2)
By: Jessica Brody
Packed with mystery, suspense, and romance, this riveting second installment of Jessica Brody’s Unremembered trilogy delivers more heart-pounding action as loyalties are tested, love becomes a weapon, and no one’s memories are safe. ~Goodreads
