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.

Sweet and fun read

First off, the book is very well written and witty, full of diverse moments bound to hit you in the feels. I usually don’t read books like this because it was too predictable, but the sentiment and enduring issues hit home for me. The romance is pg13 and kept to a minimum and kept the focus on the plot and emotional aspects—which was a plus. It’s a good, quick read. Should definitely try it and read the book!

This book was so relatable on so many levels, and a quick easy read (if staying up all night because you cane put it down is considered easy). I completely fell in love with the story, the characters, and the Mid West references!
