Ten Year Crush By: Toshia Slade **Review By Amy

Gabby and Cam have been friends for as long as she can remember. He was best friends with her brother Josh and she had the gigantic school girl crush that never went away. She could not get him out of her mind, no matter who she was with. She thought maybe Brandon would be that guy who could give her everything she wanted and push Cam out of her life. She really didn’t want to just be friends with Cam and see him with other girls because she knew no one was ever going to be good enough. Could she swallow her pride so she could keep Cam in her life and just be his friend? Would she ever stop questioning herself about what if she and Cam could make it work? Would Josh allow his baby sister to be with his best friend?
Cam was a great looking, head turning, built young man. He has been turning heads for as long as he can remember but never the head of the girl he really wanted, Gabby. She didn’t think about him like he did her, that she was more than just his friend, or did she? He had to know if he could make things work with her but was he strong enough to stand up to Josh and risk his relationship with him in case it didn’t work? Heaven knows sleeping with any available girl wasn’t keeping his mind off Gabby. What if Gabby only wanted to be friends, could he make that work? He had to keep her safe and protect her but at what cost?
This book was absolutely, without a doubt in my mind, one of the best books I have read in a while. It has incredible detail, fun scenes, romance, angst, and suspense! I would never have guessed that this was Toshia’s first novel to be written and published so this definitely isn’t a “best book for her first novel” type of review! The story is written in a way that she makes you feel like you are in the story and are seeing and really experiencing the happiness and heartbreak Gabby is going through. My emotions were a rollercoaster during this book. Happy and excited for Gabby and Cam one moment and pissed off, angry, annoyed the next.
Toshia is working on book #2 in this series and hopes to have it out in June! You better bet I will be reading this next book! I definitely think that you should pick up your copy of Ten Year Crush and be ready to snuggle up with book #2, coming soon!
