The King of the Friend Zone (Power of the Matchmaker) by Sheralyn Pratt, Book Review
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?
Note to Reader: This book is a "clean" read with mainstream values and minor language.
King of the Friend Zone by Sheralyn Pratt
Seriously I cannot even find the words to say how much I loved this book! The title is completely perfect for the book and poor Hunter who was the literal king of the friend zone! I could not for anything figure out why in the world that Esme would fall for such a loser like Jon who was a plastic surgeon who wanted to control everything all the time! This book was a frustratingly great read! I could not swipe through my kindle pages fast enough to figure out if Esme would ever wake up and see what was right in front of her face! Or if Hunter would ever get a clue and tell Esme how he really felt! Those two were the source of all my angst while reading this book! I could have thrown my kindle a time or two! But that is what makes the story so good! Pick up a copy and you will be so glad you did! I mean who doesn't love a lady named Pearl selling cookies for the price of one kiss? I have loved Pearl from other Power of the Matchmaker books and she was a hit in this one too! Read this book!!!! I received a copy of this book for free, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
You can pick up your own copy via Amazon.
