Fall in love with this hilarious and heartwarming USA Today bestselling romantic comedy that LJ Shen calls "an absolute treat."
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.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The threat of infertility casts a dark shadow over a dazzling once-in-a-lifetime love affair in this compelling romance. When ex-Marine Josh moved to Burbank fresh off of a disastrous breakup, he never dreamed he’d find love again. But that all changes when he meets Kristen and falls wildly, explosively, head-over-heels for the whip-smart lady. There’s only one problem: Josh wants a huge family, and Kristen isn’t sure if she can have children. We adored listening in on the pair's many witty exchanges—especially when they discover that Kristen’s little sweater-wearing dog, Stuntman Mike, is named after a character in both Kristen and Josh’s favorite Tarantino movie. The expressive voices of narrators Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon add another emotional layer to an already hilarious, heart-rending love story. A sweet and sexy romance that doesn’t shy away from real-life issues, The Friend Zone is a fantastic story about love, loss, and trusting your instincts.
Ugh the narrator!
Love the story line but, HATE the girl narrators voice when she does “Josh’s voice”. But the man narrator is great.
Fine for a predictable read
The female narrators voice is AWFUL - almost made me stop listening to the book on several occasions. Was able to get through it but the storyline was pretty cheesy. Only thing I truly appreciated was how the author described the struggles of women experiencing infertility.
This was sooo bad. Don’t buy it.
