Friend Zone by Camilla Isley - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Alice has been secretly in love with Jack since the moment she met him. Alice and Jack became best friends and Alice has accepted the fact that this is all she and Jack will ever be. When she and her boyfriend brake up Alice decides that it's time to stop playing around. She makes a move on Jack, but he rejects her and walks away. Alice tries to get back to where they were before, only that isn't as easy as she thought it would be. She doesn't know that her kiss did more to Jack than he's willing to admit. Is Jack ready to step out of his comfort zone?

Jack has been burned by love in the past and he's determined not to go through anything like that ever again. Jack is not blind and he has always seen how gorgeous Alice is, but he never wanted to take it to the next level before their kiss. At a party Alice meets Jack's team captain and they start dating. Jealousy is eating Jack alive and he can't deny his feelings for Alice any longer. Will he be too late now to do something about what's in his heart?

Alice and Jack truly are best friends. They're so comfortable around each other and I liked reading about that. They're standing side by side and are weathering the storms together. It was clear from the start how compatible they'd be as a couple. I love the way Camilla Isley connects the remaining dots of the stories from her first Just Friends book in Friend Zone. I always like to read up on characters that I've previously been introduced to. Camilla Isley never disappoints with her lighthearted romantic novels. She is an experienced and skillful writer and has written another fun and sweet story that I highly recommend.


If you like sweet feelgood love stories Friend Zone will be a perfect choice.

Camilla is an engineer turned writer after she quit her job to follow her husband in an adventure abroad. She’s a cat lover, coffee addict, and shoe hoarder. Besides writing, she loves reading—duh!—cooking, watching bad TV, and going to the movies—popcorn, please. She’s a bit of a foodie, nothing too serious. A keen traveler, Camilla knows mosquitoes play a role in the ecosystem, and she doesn’t want to starve all those frog princes out there, but she could really live without them.
