I don’t lakren, but wtreet I really think the problem is that it wasn’t anything really insightful that I could take streett my own life. That’s what good books do and this book didn’t do it for me.

Mar 30, Alyssa rated it did not like it Recommends it for: If you can think for yourself, knock yourself out. Not for the incredibly impressionable. Proceed with the caution of spoilers, although I truly don’t think you’ll be missing anything with this book. Still — melodrama suits the cover, the story, the characters and the writing of Two-Way Streetand if the shoe fits… This is the summary I imagine Barnholdt sent to publishers. Keep in mind that I made this up all by my Little Self: Courtney and Jordan were doing fine, fine, fine.
La-la-laProceed with the caution of spoilers, although I truly don’t think you’ll be missing anything with this book. La-la-lathis is Courtney and Jordan doing fine. They got along great, they never argued, they had perfect chemistry, were both going to the same college and were absolutely, positively head over heels with one another.
Unfortunately, their plan for travelling cross-country for their college orientation is still on. How will Courtney stand hanging around the ex she still loves for three days? How will they be able to stand the heat festering between them? You know that Jordan still loves Courtney and that their break-up was made of misunderstandings. Let me begin with the good things about TWS: Bravo to Barnholdt for achieving the expected! This cover totally misled me from what the book really is — a reflection of lies, hypocritical characters, and stupid and unrealistic situations.
This story was so, so stupid. None of this makes any logical sense. I have a huge issue with the characters. J, noted boyfriend, would have actually been somewhat likable had he not been such a male-BFF stereotype. All love-interest best friends are drunks or addicts, thus trying to show how superior the LI is, but also underlining how mindless that LI is because they chose an idiot to be their best friend. This boy was complete with outrageous lies, horrid decision-making skills, and no brains whatsoever.
Not only that, but he was a lying jerk who made terrible decisions, and also a typical playboy stereotype. This is a boy in the shape of a man who needs a few lessons on how to properly treat a human being. And I get to Courtney, and I want to gag.
This excuse for a main character is even worse than Jordan.
Right of Way (Two-way Street, book 2) by Lauren Barnholdt
For a supposedly intelligent person, Courtney was incredibly close-minded and judgmental. On page one, she assumes that the girl her ex hooked up with was a slut who was scamming guys on MySpace. Uh, darling, how is she a slut when it was your boyfriend who left you for her? And is she a slut because she went for what she wanted?
Do you know the specifics on how they got together? She left a terrible taste in my mouth.
And not only was she totally hypocritical, but she was also mindless, unable to think for herself, unrealistic, and stupid. This book was SO outdated. Who uses MySpace anymore? Again, I point out her stupidity and hypocrisy. Another fish let off the hook.
Two-Way Street is a waste of your time. La-la-lathis is me forgetting Two-Way Street. View all 28 comments. This may be syreet first road trip anti-romance novel I have read and although the entire thing was very juvenile, I enjoyed it. Jordan and Courtney, fresh high school graduates have just recently broken up but their road trip to Boston University can no longer be cancelled. You could just imagine the disaster to happen when you have to spend so many hours alone in a car with your ex.
The narrations alternating POVs of Jordan and Courtney and dialogues are engaging, the main characters seem real and the confidantes are bagnholdt.

This book is just awesome! I don’t know why barnholdr but there is something so cute and angsty about Jordan and Courtney’s story. I couldn’t stop grinning, laughing and had to finish this in one sitting.
I loved the way the story was told, both from Jordan and Courtney point of view, we get the whole situation and what exactly the dilemma is here, and I totally feel for Jordan, cause that was quite the dilemma. To be honest, it didn’t have to be that big of a deal, but I guess looking at it from th This book is just awesome! Streeh be honest, it didn’t have to be that big of a deal, but I guess looking at it from that age, it would have been, so I found it to be very realistic.
I thought all the jealousy bits bxrnholdt super cute and the love story is very touching and sweet. Lots of crude language from Jordan which I found hilarious, but I think what I liked the most was this was a believable romance with likable characters, with a great story to tell.
I’m pleased to say that I am now more of a chicklet reader and while it may not be my first love, I can say that Lauren Barnholdt work makes it easy to love it that much more. I can’t wait to read her other books! Fun, funny and fantastic!
Two-Way Street was a total blast to read!
