Jellybean Kisses by Amy Evans Blog Tour and Review

First love is the sweetest....

Jax and Jacey are everyone's favorite couple, even though they've barely ever kissed.

In kindergarten, Jax pulled out a chair for Jacey and swept the play dough off so that she would sit down next to him and he's been carving out ways for them to stick together ever since. Though everyone in their conservative, small beach town sees them as a couple, they're not, exactly. Because while they both want more, they've agreed to wait.

 Jacey works hard, respects her elders and follows every spoken and silent rule about fitting in and doing the ‘right’ thing. She doesn't dare give the gossips more fodder from her family, so she's kept Jax firmly in the friendzone. It takes a hurricane for her to realize timing is everything, but months later she’s still too afraid to put her heart on the line and tell him how she feels. Then plans change – hers for summer and his for college, and Jacey needs to make the most of the time she and Jax have left, or stay stuck in the land of missed beginnings forever

Shannon's Review
This book is a dazzling love story. It is a short read but a good one.
It all starts with you meeting Jacey and Jax with a comical joke being played on Jacey. These two have been inseparable since kindergarten as friends. But we all know that “friend zone” can be changed during that period we call puberty. These two are so sweet together. As you read it goes back into the past of how they ended up where they are in the beginning of the story. The night of the hurricane is the pivotal moment of this story.
That is where the title of this book comes into play.
I think you will love the jellybean game and the meaning of each color of the jellybean. This story is a great coming of age love story. Yes it’s not long but it leaves you with wondering where they went from the end point.

I am giving this book 4.5 hearts.
