Review Rating:



Warm my heart with this best friends to lovers story.  It gave me all the fuzzy feelings. This book was perfection!!

Just when I thought we were done with the “White House” boys, we are back and better than ever!! Tanner and Sydney are absolutely the most adorable couple Rebecca Jenshak has written to date.

I don’t know if this story is so wonderful because this relationship has had time to brew and bake properly or if Tanner and Sydney, in particular, just clicked off every single box on the YES, YES, YES couple goal list, but The Pass was amazing from the very first page until the very last one.

Tanner and Sydney had 100% chemistry, 100% friendship, and 100% everything clicking storyline wise. The words seemed to flow off the page and their rhythm was pure magic. The Pass, right here, is a reason why I love reading Rebecca’s books, it was effortless.

From the first time Tanner and Sydney met they were instantly attracted to one another, but due to a miscommunication, they each friendzoned the other. Here we are two years later and while their friendship is stronger than ever, they are at a crossroads where they ask the question; what if they could be more? What would have happened if they had crossed that friendship line two years prior? What if, what if, what if?

Spending the summer together they ask one another these questions, taking a look inside pandora’s box, but what happens when you cross the friendzone line? Once you unpack the box, things never go back in that box quite the same so are they ready?

Join these two friends on their journey and enjoy this amazing ride.


I’ve been in love with her for two years.

The first time around, I screwed things up. I hesitated and the moment was gone.

I passed when I shouldn’t have.

Not a total loss. I gained a best friend instead of whatever we might have been.

Sydney is hands down the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and I’ll do anything to keep her in my life. Even bury my feelings deep inside.

But one hot summer together at the lake filled with lots of teeny-tiny bikinis and I’m ready to risk it all for a second chance.

It’s time to take my shot.

(This is Shaw and Sydney’s story!)
