The Friend Zone: Review

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez (Romance)

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Kristen has an expectation of herself to be perfect, and that she is never good enough, and I can relate. While my mother is absolutely nothing like Evelyn was, I do completely understand holding yourself to the highest standard and making stupid rules “to protect other people”.

I almost yelled at the book once, until I remembered that my infant was sleeping in the next room. I was so infuriated with the relationship between Kristen and Josh. I almost wish that Tyler had stuck around for more of the novel, because I think the character building would have been amazing. On the other hand, I love how much time I spent so frustrated about their relationship.

I liked that the author centered the premise around Sloan, Kristen’s best friend, and her fiancé Brandon. I think this made the meeting and the entire friend zone (or friends with benefits, this is a romance novel after all), story more believable. I am planning to read both sequels: The Happily Ever After Playlist and Life’s Too Short (Pub date: April 6, 2021).
