Publisher Description

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.

Good but stereotypical and a bit mysoginist

Enjoyable like a thick romantic comedy, and very hard to stop listening! But... she’s a bit of a manic pixie dream girl and the hero male character loves guns, trucks, muscles and sweeping his fragile pixie off the ground a lot. It sounds like it takes place in the Midwest but it’s based in LA, very unlikely to have this kind of male character here. Our heroes have everything come too easy and it’s a truly sappy finish with a very awkward, patriarchal twist.

I do digress, it’s a fun listen and you don’t have to concentrate to enjoy it. 4 stars for addicting writing, if that weren’t the case it’s a 3 star story.
