Goodreads Synopsis:

The only thing worse than not being able to tell your best friend you’re head over heels in love with him? Having to smile and nod when he enlists your help to ensnare the girl of his dreams.

Braylen didn’t even want to go to Lennon Pryor’s epic graduation-night party, but when Fynn begs her to be his “wingwoman,” she can’t deny him. Talking up her BFF—how he’s magic behind a camera, with a killer sense of humor and eyelashes that frame the most gorgeous blue eyes in the history of forever—is easy. Supporting his efforts to woo someone so completely wrong for him? Not so much.

Fynn knows that grad night is his last shot before leaving for college to find true love. And thanks to Bray, he gets his chance with the beautiful Katy Evans. But over the course of the coolest party of their high school careers, he starts to see that perhaps what he really wants has been in front of him all along. Bray’s been his best friend since kindergarten, though, and he’d rather have her in his life as a friend than not at all.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains one epic party, complete with every high-schoolers-gone-bad shenanigan, and two best friends whose sexual chemistry is off the charts…if only they’d succumb to it.

ARC of Love in the Friends Zone was provided through NetGalley for an honest Review!

I could not put Love in the Friend Zone down! This was such an entertaining read that had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. In a lot of ways it reminded me of the 1998 movie “Can’t Hardly Wait”, but with a twist.

Braylen is my kind of chick! She’s nerdy and loves all things star wars, zombies, and super heroes. But she’s not some shy girl either, she’s quick witted and obviously comfortable with just being herself. Honestly, I loved and related to her character so much, even when she was being stubborn as hell.

Fynn was pretty cool to even though he was completely oblivious. I mean even a blind man could see the chemistry between him and Braylen. Other than that issue Flynn was totally swoon worthy, even though some would describe him as kind of a nerd as well. But hey who says nerds can’t be hot? So what if he liked photography, and making Yoda shaped pancakes. He also really looked out for Braylen, and went above and beyond to be the one person she could always rely on.

A big shot out needs to be made for the party that takes place in this book along with those that attended it. It truly sounded like an epic night full of drinking, music, last shots at love, guys jumping from balconies, a dream pool, and a huge friendly dog. One can only hope to experience a party as epic as this one at least once in their lifetime.

I think there also needs to be something said for the awesome friends in this book! They really try their best give both Braylen and Fynn advice through out this whole thing, even friends they just met that night. Plus there’s Bray’s friend Zoey, who words can not describe. In fact, there’s a little blurb at the end that announces a book just for Zoey’s night at this epic party. I know I for one will be grabbing a copy of that as soon as it is available.

So if there is one thing you should take away from this review is that Love in the Friend Zone is an awesome book and a must read! You will really be missing out if you don’t check it out.
