    Just what the world needs Another problematic book masquerading as a cute read sigh Admittedly in the early parts of this read I was really enjoying this book for what it was a contemporary romance with a bittersweet core So I laughed, I cried I had a lot of feels Yes I ignored the blatant stereotyping and negative portrayal of the other woman that the leading man dated who wasn t our sassy heroine because Well I liked the hunky leading man And I liked the sassy heroine Even though she was 100% a not like other girls stereotype which is of itself problematic Everyone in this book was so likeable really I cared about the characters, I was rooting for them to get together and was very touched by the storylineBut then that ill advised ending happened And I m unimpressed My review is going to be spoiler filled I do apologise but it s the only way I can discuss this book honestly and to be able to openly draw attention to its problematic nature So the content warnings for this book are illnesses and difficulties surrounding female reproductivity Our leading female character is Kristin One day she has a minor fender bender with hunky fireman Josh and sparks fly Their chemistry is off the charts and much sassy banter and f...

    You might be tempted to write Abby Jimenez s new book The Friend Zone off as fluffy chick lit, assuming it s not much different than the countless other books like it out there.You d be wrong Sure, there is romance, humor, talk of soulmates and futures, but there is also an extra layer of emotional complexity in this book It made me want to devour the book even quicker than I did, and now that I m done, I can t believe I have to wait until 2020 for Jimenez s next book Josh and Kristen s meet cute doesn t quite follow the traditional pattern Josh, a recent transplant from South Dakota to Los Angeles, actually rear ends Kristen when she has to stop suddenly in traffic Kristen isn t any damsel in distress either she s covered in coffee from the fender bender and isn t afraid to let Josh know what a crappy driver he is, using every bit of flowery language she has at her disposal.When they realize a little while later that Josh will be the best man at Kristen s best friend s wedding, both reluctantly admit they ll enjoy the prospect of spending time together There s no doubt they re attracted to one another, and Kristen is awaiting the return of her Marine boyfriend, who will be moving in with her anyway, so there s no risk to their friendship.The problem is, Kristen can t get enough of Josh, and the feeling is definitely mutual Having been raised with six older sisters, Josh is sensitive...

    I ve been crying for the last hour, everything hurts, and I m SO glad I chose to pick up this book It s in my top three favorites of the year.I don t even know where to start but this is the exact brand of romance that I m obsessed with The two main characters are snarky and sarcastic and headstrong, but it never comes off as cheesy or unrealistic Their romance is fraught with tension and angst, but I was invested in their story Their relationship was SOFT SO SOFT This book follows a woman with uterine fibroids, and that representation and seeing how that both affected her having chronic pain and the way that Josh supported her was so, so beautifully done I was laughing out loud for most of this book, and I cried my entire way through the end There were some spotty lines every now and then with some distasteful possessiveness or jokes, but the characters and the angst in this really shone through ...

    5 stars The Friend Zone is one of the best debut novels I ve read this year This one got me right in the feels and I loved it so much It s one of those books I picked up and could not put down I laughed, smiled, and sobbed my way through it and by the end, I couldn t have loved it Kristen and Josh have an interesting meet cute It starts with a fender bender, then they realize they re in the same wedding Kristen s best friend is marrying Josh s best friend You and I might just be the perfect best man maid of honor match ever Things have a rough start for them, but they actually end up becoming super close friends You know when you meet someone and putting romantic feelings aside, they just become your person That is the relationship they have Of course, they are insanely attracted to each other, but they are friends first and I love that Though it seems friends is all they ll ever be Josh broke up with his last girlfriend because she didn t want children He s from a big family and he wants nothing than to have a ton of little ones running around Kristen would love that too, but it s not in the cards for her And she loves Josh too much to hold him back Cue the sobs This book It really did have me bawling my eyes out I know, I m extr...

    Originally rated this 3 stars, but lowered it to a 2 upon further reflection I enjoyed the chemistry between the main characters, but I really and truly hated the way this book ended I can t really talk about why without going into spoilers, so view spoiler I think it is EXTREMELY harmful to market a book as having a strong infertile woman as the...

    Too Damn Sad Kristen meets her soulmate, Josh, but she has a secret that makes her a less than perfect match for him, so she does her best to keep him in the friend zone Things don t go as planned and she finds herself falling for the man she needs to keep at bay She can either keep him as a friend or reveal her secret and risk losing him forever.As a result of Kristen s secret, there is a lot of back and forth will they won t they, which was fun for a while, but at a certain point, I couldn t take it any I was ready to give up but then the storyline had a major shift and I was happy for that, but then it was just sad and awful.After seeing amazing reviews and ratings on my GR friends feeds, The Friend Zone became a must read I read bits and pieces about the plot but went in mostly blind I was thinking that this was going to be a typical, light hearted chick lit novel, so I wasn t expecting to go on an emotional rollercoaster ride I felt everything from wanting to throttle the main character I just wanted her to tell him already , to getting annoyed over some of the narrative tropes, to feeling happy, back to annoyed, to shifting to an intense level of sadness, back to happy...

    RTC, but I highkey hated the entire end of this book

    JOSHUA AND TYLER DESERVED BETTER WOMEN WITH INFERTILITY DERSERVED BETTER BRANDON DERSERVED BETTER So plus points first, before I get carried away in incandescent rage.1 This was mostly well written, and the writing seemed to flow quite well throughout the book.2 The start wasn t bad I liked Josh, Kristin was funny, and the book spoke about periods and infertility, which isn t really ever addressed in other contemporary romances.NowFirstly Kristen..OMG when will authors realise that we don t want to read about the cool girl Kristen was described as an amazing girl who doesn t like drama, doesn t wear make up, ate cheeseburgers, drank beer, and was actually labelled a unicorn four times in the book An honest, no drama woman who didn t bullshit and drank beer and cussed and didn t care about what people thought about her She was a unicorn, tucked in the body of an attractive woman with a great ass Lets just address that first because OMFG I m sick of reading about these so called perfect women, and then seeing the author compare them to other women who are exhausting or crazy Why do we need to put down other women in order to boost the heroine Next she wasn t honest, and she did indeed care about what people think about her She lied to her boyfriend, and to Josh repeatedly She was selfish, self absorbed and manipulative She was such a bitch to the men in her life.Which leads me to Tyler Kristen s lo...

    I was really expecting to LOVE this book It had everything you d want in a contemporary romance romance, humor and emotion so much emotion This isn t your typical light hearted romance It deals with the issue of infertility and all the feelings of sadness and inadequacy that plague so many women who are not able to conceive naturally I was all in from the first page right up until that ending Wham, you broke me with that ending Abby Jimenez and not in a good way. I just can t see the reason behind it It felt like too much I won t spoil things for those of you who haven t read it by being specific What really got me was that this was absolutely a solid read for me until that ending I didn t agree with it and it took some of the enjoyment out of the book for me I have to be honest and say that I m a sucker for hea...
