Falling for your best friend couldn't get any sweeter.
Tall, handsome, and eternally optimistic Noah has dated a string of gorgeous women. His best friend Elle has outlasted them all. Of course, he has no idea she's been in love with him for years. Why would he? It's not like she's going to tell him. After all, she's short and awkward, and as he's fond of reminding her, h...more
Elle and Noah were amazing characters and when I started reading I had visions of this being a light, sweet, happy best friends to lovers romance.
Boy was I wrong! Sour took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. Giddy giggling to a borderline anxiety attack.
I completely fell in love with this book and these characters. Wow! Just amazing!!!
Sour is a friends-to-lovers story that is filled with swoon worthy moments that are going to keep you wanting for more.
At the beginning of the story we get to meet Ariel (Elle) Bailey who has been away in Germany for her family’s yearly family adventure. With no phones, computers or any other kind of technology to keep in touch, Elle finds herself missing her best friend, Noah. Having been best friends for six years, the two have develope ...more
Noah never realized until they were apart how big a part of his life that Elle was. When she was away all he wanted was to be close to her and share ...more

This is an adorable friends-to-lovers romance. I liked the themes addressed in this book.
The characters were okay. I started out really liking them and then I ended up being somewhere in the middle. Not hating them, but not loving them either. I enjoyed reading about them well enough while I was reading the book because they were entertaining. I don't necessarily think that they are memorable though. The thing that I had an issue with while reading t ...more
Sour is not your typical rom-com. Although Sour begins Ariel and Noah's story the way most friends-to-lovers do (i.e. one or both vying for the other but too scared to cross the line), it becomes so much more with a few unexpected twists and turns along the way.
I really love Ariel and Noah together but I also enjoy them apart as two separate individuals. Ariel goes on a journey of self discovery. In ...more
My English review
Jennifer Woodhull is an author I didn’t know about and I was curious to discover this novel after reading the synopsis.
Elle has a crush on her best friend Noah. However, it’s not easy, because he’s there all the time and she’s thinking more and more about him. However, she knows that admitting her feelings to him could ruin everything, and she is not ready to lose him. But Noah, too, has just realized on his side that he has feelings for her. But unlike his ...more
Elle and Noah have known each other for a long time. They've been best friends since college and have been through it all together. When Elle's latest boyfriend dumps her and she runs to Noah for comfort, it changes everything for both of them. Now Noah is try ...more
This was my very first Jennifer Woodhull book and while I had a hard time connecting with our two main characters (it's a me, not you kind of thing!), the premise was a really good idea and the execution was... steady.
Best friends to lovers.. a sweeter, easier romance that'll have you whizzing through the pages.. Jennifer gives her readers a romance that was slow burning for the most part then lightening speed fast to the end.
When Elle goes on a family vacation cut off from communicati ...more
I LOVE Noah. I can't even tell you how much. Total book boyfriend material. Elle and N ...more
This is a story of friendship, this is a story of love and hope and also about fear, fear of the unknown and fear of change.
This is the story of Elle and Noah, best friends, ride or die friends. When does friendship develop into more? Read this story and see how it unfolds.
This story gave me all the feels. It was filled with heart, heat, a bit of angst and hope. A prefect cocktail for a love story.
Elle is independent and fiery. She i ...more
With friends to lovers I feel as if there has to be a great story line on how all of a sudden two platonic friends start having feelings for each other and Jennifer Woodhull did a great job of growing that lust/love and transitioning Elle and Noah's ...more
The story starts with Elle being away in a family trip in Germany with no technology, finding herself missing her best friend, Noah. They have been friends for like six years. Elle starts to fall for him when he's taken care of her during her break-up. Little does she know that Noah has fallen in love with her too. Noah wants to step up and confess his feelings for her. So he decides to do it during their trip to Vegas.
I loved their ...more
There were some cute moments in this book, but I didn't connect with either character. Though his heart was in the right place Noah made a number of big assumptions about how Elle would feel when he told her his feelings had changed. He threw a lot at her all at once even with some prev ...more
The plot of this story was intriguing. I like a good friends to lovers romance just as much as the next. However, this story felt a bit forced for me. The characters were good, but I wasn't necessarily rooting for them. While the heat was great, I am not quite sure how I felt about the rest o ...more
My rating for Sour by Jennifer woodhull is a solid 4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐ it would of been 5 but I found some spelling mistakes or words missing throughou ...more
Best friends to lovers is one of my favorite troupes!! I love how the author really showed Elle and Noah’s friendship and the humor around it. I felt like I was right there in Vegas and more with these two.
I am a total fan of this author and will say one of my favorite things is the settings she paints. You literally feel like you are right there with said couple. There are so much details and information about the settings and travels.
If your scene is best friends to lovers, you hav ...more

It's not terribly long and the story is intriguing enough. Elle frustrated me just a tad, but that's me being too eager and hating conflict. I was really proud of her character development, and I'm glad things ended the way they did.
I think it's important to see characters my age not have to choose love or career, and this story balances those conflicts nicely.
*I was given a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.*
I went into this book thinking it was going to be like the movie Made of Honor. It was not like that at all. The plotline had potential, but the execution was immature and campy. The inner thoughts got old really fast. It would seem to me if these are best friends then they should be able to use their words to communicate. It just didn't work for me. The characters were simple and had no real depth. I am giving it 2 stars because the writing wasn't terrible, but the plot a ...more
