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

The Friend Zone is my first sports themed NA book and it did not disappoint.  This book had me at “shenanigans.” The banter between Ivy and Gray from the first page had me literally laughing out loud.  The angst of a friends to lovers story was done well and I fell in love with both Gray and Ivy instantly.  I’m a football fan so I was excited to be reading this type of book.  Kristen’s description of the plays on the field to the pink bubble gum Fiat, had me feeling like I was actually there with Gray. He’s smart, funny and super sexy! The way he is with Ivy throughout the book was definitely making me swoon.  And, Ivy is just fantastic! Funny in her own right and a tough cookie too.  I’m looking forward to reading more of Kristen’s books in this series.
