From the author of The Wedding Date and The Family Man comes the final book in Kelly Eadon's Belmont Beach Brides series.
SHE PLANNED FOR EVERYTHING-EXCEPT HIM.
Fresh off a painful break-up, wedding planner Ainsley Slone is suffering from an acute case of "always the planner, never the bride." And she's over it. It's time for a break-to figure out how to let everything go and just have a little sexy fun. And she knows the perfect person to teach her how: irresistible manwhore Ryan Lawhill.
Their deal? No sex, just fun. It's the perfect plan--until the chemistry between them starts sparking like crazy. Ryan knows all too well that Ainsley's looking for a happily-ever-after, but he's always been keep-it-fun-or-it's-done. Yet the moment they cross The Friend Zone, all bets are off-and soon the ultimate player is the one playing for keeps.
About the Author
Kelly Eadon is a romance writer living in Richmond, Virginia with her husband and a house full of rescue animals, aka "the kraken". She swears like a sailor and says whatever pops into her head. In order to counteract her big mouth, she wears high heels whenever possible. In her spare time she spins, kick boxes and attempts to renovate her farmhouse. She hates sanding drywall, loves to cook, drinks lots of wine, gets scary competitive at trivia, and enjoys time spent exploring with her rescued beagle mixes.
I have loved Ryan since The Wedding Date when he Kate cursing his name for changing her ringtone - and we hadn't even met him yet! So a whole book about Ryan? When I found out, it made my bookish heart sing.
At the start if this book, i would've said it's about the classic case of opposites attract. but that's not what I finished the thinking and feeling. I mean, sure, it's a little bit about that, but it more about becoming your best self when with someone you least expected. That is what Ryan and Ainsley (BTWs I totally had to google how to pronounce that) do for each other. They help each other grow into the poeple that they wanted to be - even if they weren't aware originally that was what they wanted.
There are so many sweet, funny, cute, awkward, worrying, and heartfelt moments in Crossing the Friend Zone, and I felt every single one of them. This book was just a general delight to read, and I really don't know how to fully express that with words. So please just take my lost-for-words-ness as a standing ovation. Eadon defiantly save the best for last with this series.
There is nothing not to love about Eadon's Crossing the Friend Zone. It has everything a good NA romance novel needs, so why aren't you reading it yet?
