The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez
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, Joshua 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 just might be one of my favorite reads of 2019. Abby Jimenez's debut novel is compelling, comical, and heartbreaking.
As previously mentioned, this book follows the story of Kristen Petersen and Joshua Copeland--two of the most genuine and candid characters featured in a work of romance. Kristen is witty, funny, and unapologetic. While Joshua is strong, determined, and big-hearted. Together, the pair is absolutely captivating.
Despite The Friend Zone being the author's first novel, Jimenez managed to create a wonderful narrative filled with both delight and heartbreak. Readers can expect to laugh-out-loud and even shed a tear or two.
This book is the perfect pick for readers who enjoyed Jojo Moyes' Me Before You or Christina Lauren's Josh and Hazel's Guide to Not Dating.
