Eliza's Review: The Friend Zone by Kristen Callihan

Title: The Friend Zone
Series: Game On, #2
Author: Kristen Callihan
Release date: 5th May, 2015
Rating: 4.5 "Cheerios will never be the same" stars
Cliffhanger: No

Gray doesn’t make friends with women. He has sex with them. Until Ivy. 

The last thing star tight-end Gray Grayson wants to do is drive his agent’s daughter’s bubblegum pink car. But he needs the wheels and she’s studying abroad. Something he explains when she sends him an irate text to let him know exactly how much pain she’ll put him in if he crashes her beloved ride. Before he knows it, Ivy Mackenzie has become his best texting bud. But then Ivy comes home and everything goes haywire. Because the only thing Gray can think of is being with Ivy.

Ivy doesn’t have sex with friends. Especially not with a certain football player. No matter how hot he makes her… 

Gray drives Ivy crazy. He’s irreverent, sex on a stick, and completely off limits. Because, Ivy has one golden rule: never get involved with one of her father’s clients. A rule that’s proving harder to keep now that Gray is doing his best to seduce her. Her best friend is fast becoming the most irresistible guy she’s ever met.

Which means Gray is going to have to use all his skills to get himself out of the friend zone and into Ivy’s heart. Game on

Reading The Hook Up was an unexpected but pleasant surprise. I believe I said “Kristen Callihan gives good NA!!” After completing The Friend Zone, I can safely say this was not only a repeat performance but in fact worthy of a standing ovation.

The Friend Zone focuses on Grey Grayson, best friend and teammate to Drew Baylor whom we met in the first book. An act of kindness for his friend Drew sees Gray with temporary possession of his agent’s daughter’s car. Did I mention it’s a bubblegum pink car? Ivy Mackenzie is the proud owner of said car and a simple text from her to Gray is the beginning to what will be an amazing friendship.

Ivy and Gray are two of the most compatible characters I've read about in a long time, they compliment in every way. From page one their text filled banter induced grins and laughter that could not be subdued. As their friendship developed so too did the sexual angst until the self proposed “friend zone” status is no more.

I realize my review is not very descriptive and rather vague but I find found it really hard to highlight its best bits without giving it all away. Excluding one tiny factor I really did love:
