    Don't waste your time

    There was nothing about this book that I liked. The characters were stereotypes, the main character being the absolute epitome of a "i'm not like other girls" girl, and is called "a unicorn" FOUR times in the book. The main guy is exhausting and can't take no for an answer. He wants a a baseball team of kids and wants more sons than daughters because he's A MAN and NEEDS TO BE A MAN WITH MEN I guess? It's all just...uninteresting. Nothing about the characters stood out. Kristen who prides herself on honesty and telling it like it is could have solved every problem in the book if she just used her words and told the truth but she didn't. I keep thinking I have covered everything I disliked about this book but then remember another thing.

    Unrealistic Infertility Story

    SPOILERS. . . .2.5 stars. As much as I loved the beginning of this book, how quirky the characters were and how fun it was written, I ended up being really upset by the ending. I am someone that is currently dealing with infertility and when I found out this book was being written from that point of view I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy. Unfortunately, this story of infertility was one of those rare instances of a happy ending, and I felt like I couldn't relate to the story and characters anymore. Kristen's story is her falling in love with this guy, Josh, who is amazing for her, except he wants to have a big family and she is about to have a hysterectomy because of painful cysts she has in her uterus. One problem, is she wasn't honest about her situation in the beginning, kept getting upset that Josh didn't understand why she was pulling away from him, and then would freak out and say he just wants children and wouldn't understand why she can't have kids. She never even explained her medical problem until the last 1/4 of the book! Communication is a big factor in a relationship, especially one involving infertility problems, and I didn't think that was portrayed very well. When Josh does find out about her "inability" to have kids, he does research about IVF, gets his sperm tested, and comes up with a business plan on how they can pay for it all (supposedly his insurance pays 100% for IVF, which is VERY unusual in reality). I have dealt with infertility for 4 years and had one miscarriage. I still don't have my happy ending, and this book made me very upset that Kristen was able to conceive naturally (having sex only once without a condom) and carried a pregnancy to term without any complications. This is not how a normal infertility story goes in real life. Abby writes in the back as a note from the author: "Kristen's happy ending was never about getting pregnant. It was about her allowing herself to be loved, despite what she felt were shortcomings. It was about her recognizing that she wasn't defined by her ability to have children, and that her worth went beyond the state of her uterus. That was her happily ever after." I'm sorry to say, but how many women dealing with infertility are ACTUALLY going to relate to that? Isn't most of the women who are upset by being infertile, view their happy ending as getting pregnant and having a child? Isn't that the whole point of dealing with infertility, because you are TRYING to have a family of your own? Not every women IS going to be able to get pregnant, and that's what I wish would have been the ending. Some couples have to decide that they want to be together no matter the outcome (because we really CAN'T make ourselves get pregnant no matter how much we try). All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover is a really great book about infertility because she showed the actual true details and heartache of what its like to never know if you will get pregnant. I know a lot of people will probably love The Friend Zone because of the cute characters, but for me, it made me feel like I still wasn't understood. Women dealing with infertility can't or won't ever see the light at the end of the tunnel - you can't guarantee them a happy ending - so I feel like this book should also have made light of that.

    The Friend Zone

    I cannot tell you how much fun I had reading this one! I had a quiet afternoon in a waiting room and sat in the corner and grabbed an extra chair to put my feet up, and power read this from beginning to end and wanted more. I found myself laughing out loud and apologizing over my shoulder to the others around me but who cares! I was deep in a GREAT BOOK with Super-duper characters! Kristen will do anything for her friends and she is planning her best friend's wedding when she meets the best man, Josh. He is almost more than she can handle at this point in her life with what she is anticipating but his form of sexy/fun may be just what she needs. Will they or won't they figure out they belong together before they implode. This one is a MUST READ! I highly recommend!!!! **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley(thank you for granting my wish)**

    Hurts

    I was given the option to have a 'FREE PREVIEW' of this new book. I loved it so much and could not put it down, so I ran to the library as soon as I finished my preview, so I could finish the story. So worth it. God Bless my local county library! Josh meets Kristen in a less than stellar way. Then when they meet officially later, they already have to work harder to impress one another. They are mutual friends of a couple who is getting married so there is a lot going on. Kristen is involved with someone else when she meets Josh, so they are just friends. For now. If ever a chance arises to to take it to another level? Well lets just say there are enough sparks between them to light up Las Vegas. This was such a witty and fun story. I really could not put it down. I found the characters to be deliciously complex. The heat and heart in the book made it a great read. The pace was steady, and there was plenty of humor too. ***Thanks to Netgalley, and the publisher for the free preview.
