"Gemma can't believe her luck when the star football player starts flirting with her. Max is totally swoon-worthy, and even gets her quirky sense of humor. So when he asks out her so-called best friend Addison, Gemma's heartbroken. Then Addison pressures Gemma to join the date with one of Max's friends. But the more time they all spend together, the harder Gemma falls for Max. She can't help thinking that Max likes her back--it's just too bad he's already dating Addison. How can Gemma get the guy she wants without going after her best friend's boyfriend?"--

It's so nice to read a young adult book where absolutely everything is tied up in the end, and no one dies or is permanently heartbroken, or both. The One That I Want was really fun to read. Addison was a bit cliché but other than that the characters seemed real.

Such a cute book :) You should read this if you like reading romance stories and such :)

This was a cute book, a lot better than I expected. It suffices to say that this is chicklit and will not hold much depth. I found Addison to be a little two dimensional and Gemma's success too contrived. If you're looking for a quick read (I read this in about an hour) or something that doesn't require much brain power to process, I recommend this book.
