Kristen Petersen doesn't do drama, will fight to the death for her friends, and has no room in her life for guys who just don't get her. She's also keeping a big secret: facing a medically necessary procedure that will make it impossible for her to have children.

Planning her best friend's wedding is bittersweet for Kristen—especially when she meets the best man, Josh Copeland. He's funny, sexy, never offended by her mile-wide streak of sarcasm, and always one chicken enchilada ahead of her hangry. Even her dog, Stuntman Mike, adores him. The only catch: Josh wants a big family someday. Kristen knows he'd be better off with someone else, but as their attraction grows, it's harder and harder to keep him at arm's length.The Friend Zone will have you laughing one moment and grabbing for tissues the next as it tackles the realities of infertility and loss with wit, heart, and a lot of sass.
“Nothing offended me except for cauliflower and stupidity.” 

THAT ladies and gentleman is how you write a romantic comedy! In fact, that's how you write an epic story! This book, in its entirety, was absolutely amazing. I laughed, I cried, I swooned. I was completely immersed and invested. 

The Friend Zone is the entire package and so much more. It has light-heartedness but it is also real life. The characters are so relatable and you will fall in deep love with them immediately. The author did a spectacular job at translating the hardships of real life with such authenticity and compassion, while also adding some great comedic moments. I don't think I've ever laughed out loud so much while reading before. However, with great laughs, came some heavy moments as well. What each character deals with is something that is happening in people's lives, every single day. There were some moments that got really serious and left me in some serious tears. Abby Jimenez delivered an impactful story that will stay with me forever. 

The Friend Zone is far more than your average boy-meets-girl story. The relationships in this book go far beyond that. The Friend Zone is about friendships and dealing with real every day. the relationships between Sloan and Kristen and Brandon and Josh will really touch you. Kristen might just be my most favourite book character ever. Her no-nonsense personality and hilarious sense of humour had me loving her immediately. Josh, very quickly, earned himself the award of most swoon-worthy character. We can all thank Abby Jimenez for making us look at our significant others a little differently since being introduced to Josh!

 You do not have to be a fan of chick-lit or romance to enjoy this book. The Friend Zone will appeal to all audiences. It's genuine, heart-warming and overall a wonderful read. Definitely a favourite of the year!

  1. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos

  2. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
