Overview

Friend Zone by Nicole Blanchard

Liam Walsh is just a roommate.

Maybe if Charlie St. James repeats it enough, she'll stop lusting after him. Not that it matters how she feels anyway, because Liam will always see her as one of the boys. Hell, he's the one who gave her the nickname Charlie as a joke.

Well, the joke's on her.

Now that she is confined to less than 1,000 square feet with him, she can't stop thinking about how it would feel to get just a little bit closer.

Charlie St. James is off limits.

She's been Liam Walsh's best friend since grade school. He thought it wouldn't be a big deal to let her crash with him when she needed a place to stay, but he was dead wrong. Knowing only a thin wall separates them when they sleep, that she's naked in the shower while he lays in bed fantasizing about her, is unbearable.

When their cozy two bedroom goes from friend zone to war zone, they'll either burn up the sheets or go down in flames.

Charlie and Liam have been best friends since they were children and his family had become her family. Her feelings for Liam run much deeper than friends but he never shown any interest that he wanted to be anything else and she is scared to take that leap as she wouldn’t only lose him, but she would lose his family as well. Growing up together Liam has always seen Charlie as a friend and would do anything to help her out. When the relationship with her boyfriend comes to an end he offers to let her move in and become his roommate which turns both their worlds upside down. Spending time together Charlie finds Liam hard to resist and for the first time Liam sees Charlie as a woman and not a friend. Neither of them can forget the explosive kiss they shared which now has them questioning their relationship but with all the emotional upheaval in both their lives their journey is far from easy. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
I LOVE STORY TIME Book Blog 15 days ago
I just love these friends to lover stories. They get me every time! I like seeing their friendship before they become a couple. I like reading about how their feelings go from being friendly into looking at each other with a whole new meaning. I feel that their relationship is so much stronger because of the bond they have with each other already. Liam and Charlie were so cute. Even though they were unsure at first, I knew they were perfect together! This is a nice, light hearted story. It’ll have you swooning, laughing, and you just might even find yourself getting a little flustered! Liam sure does know how to get pretty steamy between those sheets!! -Juls

For so long Charlie has been known as just one of the guys, often sitting beside Liam and friends at the bar slinging back drinks, and up and until now it's worked just fine. But somewhere along the line, without either realizing it, they both started to harbor secret feelings for one another, both thinking the other had no interest in romance. But now that Charlie is single, and about to embark on a trip of a lifetime to do mission work, Liam realizes just how much he wants more from her, and it couldn't possibly come at a worse time. But making his feelings known could put their friendship at risk... now he has to decide if it's worth the risk? Friend Zone was a sexy little page turner that gripped my attention from the first page and held it tightly until the last, once I got started I just couldn't let these characters go! This was quite an pleasurable read, loaded with feels to squeeze the heart, and steamy action to bring on the swoons, I truly enjoyed every single second of it! The story line was engaging, the characters came with a realistic feel, and the words were well crafted, friends-to-lovers fans will love it. Highly recommend this one!! I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am voluntarily leaving my honest opinion.

Charlie and Liam have been best friends for years and they relationship was always a platonic one,until one day they release they could be more than friends. I really struggled to like this book.The story was sweet and funny and steamy but there were some things that felt missing to me.Character development being on.And i felt like the story was a bit rushed. Charlie was sweet and funny and i can understand her situation and her need to control things around her,but i felt like she overreacted in some things and by the end of the story she did grow up but i just couldn't change my opinion. Liam was nice guy.He is driven and smart and i liked how he decided to act upon his feelings.I liked how he stood up against his father at the end.He is the reason why this book was enjoyable for me,on some level. While reading this book i could't fell chemistry between these two and i felt like they really should remain friends. But I'm definitely curios about Layla and Dash story so maybe I'll like that one better.

Liam and Charlie have been best friends for a long time. Now, he is feeling more for her than friendship. Is it smart to act on those feelings? He must decide before it is too late if he can be the man she needs. Charlotte AKA "Charlie" has just realized she wants more from her best friend, Liam. All of a sudden the way she feels about him is just not enough. Every time she is in the same room it seems there are so many sparks flying, she is afraid she will combust. This is such a sweet and yet very sexy story. I was engrossed in it pretty quick. Besides being my favorite trope, the characters are smart, sexy, and have great banter. They get right to the heart of things. I loved the pace and the fact it starts out this new series just right! ***This copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

What a delightful friends-to-lovers romance. Liam and Charlie have been best friends since they were children. Liam's family took care of Charlie after she lost her parents. They are so close in almost every way. They didn't see how much they were meant for each other, until they share an impulsive, hot kiss. Now Liam will do whatever it takes to convince Charlie to take a chance on them. They are both at a huge crossroads in their lives. They need each other more than ever with big changes happening both personally and professionally. Their story is a rollercoaster that brings fun, heartache, hard choices and love. I really cared for both Charlie and Liam. They were both kind, thoughtful and hard working. They had fun together, supported each other, and had explosive chemistry. I was a bit frustrated when they had a hard time communicating, despite being so close, but I still found myself cheering for their HEA. I really enjoyed this emotional, sweet & sexy romance. I hope to see more of Liam and Charlie along with their intriguing group of friends.

I have been looking forward to this book coming out. Let me tell you, it didn't disappoint. Liam and Charlie were the perfect couple. Yeah they had their ups and downs but who doesn't. They have been the best of friends for years and have gone through so much together. So much in fact that Liam's family is like a second family to Charlie. The number one down fall I read between the two of them was their communication skills. They just weren't able to tell each other the important things right away, which brought on so much of their downfalls. Luckily they were able to over come their issues and find their HEA. I love how this book was a standalone but that it hinted at more to come. I'm looking forward to continuing with this series and getting to really know the rest of the characters that we met in Friend Zone, along with catching up with Liam and Charlie.

Friends Zone is a spectacular heart-wrenching journey of two truly amazing friends becoming so much more than they ever thought possible. It is so hard to sum up the incredible friendship shared, given, and relied upon throughout this exquisite journey. These two marvelous characters found each other in the worst times of their life and held on tight throughout everything that came their way. Just as in life, the way we view friendships change depending on how we mature and grow through the years. This story was not any different, and it kept me feeling everything. I felt their good times, their hard times, and everything in between. My tears were theirs as they blindly found their place in their world through pain, pleasure, and never failing love. This story will destroy you utterly and completely. Nothing prepared me for what I found within these precious pages. I was knocked off my feet from the very beginning, and after awhile I gave up and just stayed down while I watch mesmerized as two wonderful people discovered how they would shape and fill their life both at the present and in the future. Time never stood still for them, and they are drug along at times while screaming in torturous pain. However, through it all, they found who they were and where they needed to be. Life is painful as we grow and as life grows around us. People and things get moved as they make room for new and different. This book was so much more than I ever imagined, and I am so thankful for that! Nicole Blanchard NEVER fails to surprise, delight, and engage the reader in each of her stories. You will feel and you will suffer right along with her incredible characters, but you will come through it so much better for every moment in the muck and mire. The sun shines brighter and warmer on the other side. Her books are a revelation of what it takes to truly love, live, and hope.

Liam and Charlie have been best friends since they were 10. But 12 years later, Liam still is playing the field ... that is when he has time after school and work. While Charlie also goes to school and works at a hospital, she is in one relationship after another ... never finding the right guy. Until one night when Liam kisses her to help her get rid of her latest boyfriend. But they both find that the kiss was way more than they expected and they start to see each other in a different light. This is a quick funny, sad and steamy romance! A great friends to lovers story. I loved how that deep down inside they couldn't find anyone else because they knew they were right for each other. Liam is such a gentleman and tries to do what's in his heart. And Charlie just can't catch a break and needs Liam to be her knight in shining armour. Ms. Blanchard also set up the next couple of books quite nicely ... can't wait to read them! I graciously received an ARC courtesy of the author in exchange for a honest review.

The great thing about a friends to lovers book is they know each other and the love is not only real but deep. These two have been such a big part of each other's life for so long they just fit. Now that circumstances are pushing them together it seems only natural, but it isn't. With the fears and personal issues they are confronting it's a miracle they can see each other at all. The chemistry is there and only burning hotter with time. Now if they could only get the other stuff to work out too. This author likes to play with your emotions. This is an emotional read but mainly because of the types of battles they deal with not solely due to them. As usual this author never makes it simple and leaves you needing a drink to chase the remnants away. Excellent read, just the right kind.
