    More than friends?

    Gray Grayson and Ivy Mackenzie have never met in person. She is in London helping her mother with her bakery. Gray is back at school with his football, friends & classes. Ivy's father loans him her car to drive. It is powder puff pink and small. Ivy is more afraid he will try to get lucky in the back seat. Gray can barely fit in the front seat. Ivy and Gray end up texting and becoming friends. They find they have a lot in common. Gray has never had a friend that was female before. He either was not interested or they just wanted sex from him. Ivy makes him laugh. She is intelligent and thoughtful and even over text can tell Gray is a good man. Gray and Ivy meet when her dad cannot pick her up at the airport. For the first time they have a chance to see each other and find out if their friendship can last in person. Ivy is stunned with the attraction she feels so suddenly. Gray is freaking out because this is his best friend and he does not want to mess it up with sex. The character development in this story is so awesome and honest. I enjoyed the banter that made me laugh, every emotional moment that made me cry, and more. The story also includes our favorite characters from the first Game On series book so do not worry! I could NOT put it down and worth every page!

    An amazing friendship

    This book takes place around the same time as the first book in the series. It can be read as a standalone and doesn’t have a cliff-hanger ending and the next book in the series features a different couple. However, it is much more enjoyable to read all of the books in the series. There are currently 3 books with more to come. In this book, Gray and Ivy become friends when Ivy’s father lends his daughter’s car to Gray to use while his friend is using his. They strike up a long distance friendship and when they meet face to face Gray wants nothing more than to get closer to Ivy, but is reluctant to risk ruining the friendship that has come to mean so much to him. But soon it becomes apparent to him that Ivy is more than worth taking the risk for.

    It's all about the Cupcake and Special Sauce!

    How is it possible to love a story so much? That previous statement is a testament to the power of Kristen Callihan's writing. A book might be an inanimate object, yet the power it wields is infinite and intangible. One can experience the greatest emotions life has to offer by simply connecting with the characters in a book. The Friend Zone is the perfect example of such artistry. There wasn't a single emotion I didn't feel and I finished this book craving more of everything I'd experienced. Ivy and Gray are wonderful. Apart they are strong individuals with personalities that make them stand out. Ivy is warm, hardworking, funny, and sincere. I loved her. It was her attitude I think that impressed me the most. She's seen what fame brings a sports star and it wasn't pretty, so she's leery of getting involved with an athlete. Gray is is somewhat the same when it comes to his personality, except he's had other challenges he's faced that have left indelible marks on his soul. It's amazing how wonderful the two are together. It's not just the chemistry between them that you can see and feel in the texts they exchange or the nicknames they give one another, but it's also in how they are around each other. The romantic tension between them was so delicious to read about and yet difficult as well. That's due to being in both of their heads and knowing their fears and feelings making their interactions so wonderful to read. I just wanted them to get over everything and be together. It really felt like they were trying so hard not to give in to their feelings for all of the wrong reasons. The long wait for them to have some epiphanies was so worth it. I have to say Gray surprised me the most when it came to being in a relationship. Not only was it extremely unexpected for him especially since he was an unrepentant manwhore, but I had no idea he was a closet romantic, and neither did he. It was interesting to see how a man who hadn't had a girlfriend since he was 6, deal with wanting to be in a relationship for the first time and with a strong woman like Ivy at that. Of course not everything was all easy between them. Both of them had to deal with their perceptions of each other and what they wanted from each other while trying to figure out how everything worked with what they wanted for their futures. And to make things even more interesting, lessons and incidences from their pasts were also pressing on the present and future. I love how everything tied together and was relevant to them and their growing relationship with each other. Both Ivy and Gray were hilarious and they had some choice one-liners. Their verbal sparring was very entertaining to read. I laughed so much. I also swooned frequently. It's hard not to when faced with Gray and the way he thinks. That man is amazing. There were also tears, fears, and anger. Sometimes I felt a mix of many emotions all at once. It was wonderful to see Drew and Anna again. I also loved the nod to Elle Kennedy's The Mistake. I may or may not have squealed when I read that paragraph. I really loved how Kristen Callihan incorporated so many issues into this story. It wasn't just the respective pasts of Ivy and Gray, but also dealing with Drew's insecurities after having his future plans upended, and other problems other team members were facing. The story might have centered around Ivy and Gray, but many members of the team played central roles in their story as well and I loved seeing the camaraderie between them all. I'm hoping to see more Ivy and Gray in the future and also keeping my fingers crossed Fiona, Ivy's sister, might get her own book. I already know who I'd like to see her with. I'm amazed at how much I've had to say about The Friend Zone, I could say so much more, but even that would be inadequate to verbalize the magic and wonder that can be found in this story. Kristin Callihan once again outdoes herself and it shows in every word in this tale of friendship, love, and taking chances.

Enter Ivy who is the daughter ofhis future agent, he loans him her car while she ia away overseas and she starts the frienship with one text msg, the banter goes back and forth for these two until they finally meet. They are both scared to taked things further but the sexual chemistry is explosive.
