Review | King of the Friend Zone

King of the Friend Zone

amazon Goodreads
Esme Taylor has an amazing fiancé, a lifelong best friend, and a problem.

The problem stems from the fact that her best friend is named Hunter and, well… he’s kind of (totally) hot. It’s hate at first sight when her fiancé, Jon, and Hunter meet. Jon’s convinced that Hunter is in love with Esme, and that Hunter must be out of the picture if their upcoming marriage is to succeed.

Esme thinks Jon is paranoid.

The truth is, Jon’s not that far off. Hunter is in love with his best friend and always has been. What Jon has wrong, however, is that Hunter never had any plans of ruining Esme’s happily ever after. Hunter wants what’s best for Esme, even if that’s not him.

When Jon pushes hard to end Esme and Hunter’s friendship, opposition comes from the most unlikely of places. It’s an eccentric lady with a cookie cart who suggests a different solution to Esme’s problem: Hunter and Esme should give each other a chance.

They’ve both thought of the possibility over the years—of course they have. But with a ring already on Esme’s finger and a heap of hurt feelings and broken trust in the mix, there hasn’t been a worse time to explore the depths of their feelings for each other.

Both Esme and Hunter think it’s time to move on and leave childhood crushes in the past. The question is: Can one woman and the taste of one cookie change their minds?

Hott Review:

If you want to drown yourself in an amazing romance, King of the Friend Zone is the book for you. As soon as I picked it up, I fell in love with the characters and the writing. I didn’t put it down until it was finished.

King of the Friend Zone makes you yearn for friends and love like Esme has. That love and friendship are what take this book from good to amazing. It makes you a part of the book and gives you a feeling of home while you’re in it’s pages.

I personally feel in love with Hunter. From page one. His heart is so obvious even hidden behind his gruffness.

There were times I was reading that I felt like I was losing my best friend and times when I felt like I was falling in love. It’s astounding how Ms. Pratt is able to pull me into her fiction.

One of the things I love most about King of the Friend Zone is how she gives a glimpse of how a man can begin to corrupt a relationship into toxic. It gives the signs and will hopefully give someone the push they need to leave – or give an outsider the reminder they need to stay supportive.

Wow! King of the Friend Zone is a book not to be missed!

Author Bio:

Sheralyn’s first job was as a karate instructor, which taught her that practice does not make perfect; practice makes habit–good or bad. Martial arts also taught Sheralyn that a master is simply a person who can effortlessly do all the actions a beginner finds difficult or maybe even impossible.

Sheralyn has worked in many fields throughout her life, but her 12 years as a karate instructor have shaped how she does everything, including writing and mentoring. She likes to keep things light and fun, but she’s also aware that life is journey and that if you’re going to buy a book, your life should better for it.

So, fiction or nonfiction, know that each of Sheralyn’s books are designed to take you to a new place. Maybe that book is designed to help you escape for a few hours, or maybe it’s a book designed to teach you a new skill. Either way, Sheralyn hopes it’s unforgettable…in a good way. 😉
