Wow. This was such a fantastic read. I had been looking for a cute romance and I found it in Friend-Zoned by Belle Aurora. I was intrigued by the synopsis, because you don’t see a lot of NA romances where they’re friends first. I immediately liked he originality of the story.
And then I started READING the book and it was so much better than I ever thought it would be. And trust me, I had high expectations for this read. From the start I got invested in the characters and their intricate back stories. I loved how the author didn’t just focus on Tina and Nik, but their whole group of friends. Everybody seemed like a main character. It made the story feel a lot more realistic and gave a unique quality to this series.
Tina is a goofball with a heart of gold. She has been through things no person should ever go through, yet she wakes up everyday with such a positive and optimistic outlook that even the happiest people in the world can’t muster. I loved how she called everyone ‘Honey’ or ‘Sweetie.’ She was like a mother figure to her friends, and though that sounds weird, it fit her character perfectly.
Nik was such a cutie. I thought it was so funny how he reacted to being put in ‘the friend-zone.’ He’s a hot guy with a ton of money and a successful business. Women don’t say no to him.
Their relationship progressed in a nice, natural manner. Nothing rushed or too slow. It was a perfect pace and I thought the author did a fantastic job with it.
I loved all of the characters. Seriously, ALL OF THEM. But I especially loved the relationship between CeeCee and Tina. That poor little girl needed a mother figure and Tina filled it without it seeming awkward or forced. That group of eight people became a family in a set amount of pages, and I felt like I was a part of the group. This book was superb and taught so many lessons I wasn’t expecting. If you love a good romance between two very deserving people, surrounded by a group of imperfectly perfect friends, then Friend-Zoned is definitely for you.
Friend-Zoned by Belle Aurora = 5 well-deserved stars
