The Friend Zone Abby Jimenez Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Fall in love with this hilarious and heartwarming romantic comedy that USA Today bestselling author LJ Shen calls "an absolute treat."
Instant USA Today bestseller!
Kristen Peterson 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.
"Your next favorite romantic comedy...The Friend Zone is that rare beach read with tons of heart that will make you laugh and cry in equal parts." ---PopSugar

    this book made me smile so much and made my heart hurt. the good way and the bad way. i felt pain, frustration, happiness, sadness, anxiousness, excitement, and humor. the story was pretty predictable and a bit of a cliché, not to mention very cheesy, but still amazing. if you like that sort of thing, like i surely do, then i definitely recommend this book. it’s humorous, sad, predictable, and most of all, lovable. this book surely did not disappoint me, it was absolutely amazing. i know i’m going to reread this book in the future. i can’t wait for the next book!! (sorry if this review was all scattered everywhere lol)

    Plot twists that were unexpected. Book had a feel to it that made you rooting for the characters. My heart exploded with this book. All emotions felt including ugly crying. Can’t wait for the next book.

    I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read this book or not considering the contents, but I’m glad I did! Dealing with fertility issues of my own and knowing I’ll never conceive naturally I was genuinely worried this book might bring up things I didn’t want to feel. The book was full of love and laughter as well as tears of happiness. It wasn’t your typical sappy happily ever after and yet it was despite the tragedies. It gave the raw , real life, messy parts of love with all relationships. Hell, just go read it!
  • Funny and catchy but also cheesy

    I didn’t expect the twist of events with Brandon, but it did make the story line stronger. The author did a great job of painting the story in front of the reader to picture every detail. I didn’t like the fights of the same things over and over, repeating the same thing and the details that just made the plot unnecessarily longer. I think it could have been shorter a bit by omitting the details, and I mean the “cheesy” ones. It was a light read after all, and it did bring up good points when exploring femininity, respect, and strength in the book.
  • Loved this book!

    This is one of those rare books that you want to read forever and never want to end. It had me laughing from witty humor one minute and crying the next. I usually don’t write reviews, but highly recommend this one!

    This book was so easy to read that I couldn’t put it down! I could say so much more but don’t want to spoil it. My description: romantic, more serious than a comedy, relatable and realistic with the situations presented, young love, the chase at the beginning with romantic mishaps then the ending being sad, thought-provoking (for me at least), but also just what you need to call it a good read! I would recommend to my friends.

    I laughed, I cried, I smiled and I sighed my way though this incredible book. I couldn’t put it down and finished it in a day. It took unexpected turns and kept me on my toes. You get so attached to the characters and I was rooting them on as I turned the pages. 10/10 recommend
