HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY GIVEAWAY
~ecopy set of  GAME ON (book 1 & 2)
the hook up (new cover) TFZ+Amazon

Foxy’s ★ ★ ★ ★ Review:

WOWSERS!!! The prologue is the da’ bomb!!

The Friend Zone opens with several pages of amusing text messages between Gray and Ivy. The text messages are their first interaction with each other. Just like Drew from The Hook Up whose mother gave him advice… Gray’s mother also provides him with some wisdom:

“Live every day to the fullest, Gray. Appreciate life to the fullest, promise me that.”

Gray may have interpreted that differently than his mother intended,

’It simple, really. I party because it’s fun. Enjoy women because I love them. Love their sweet scent, their musical laughter, and their soft curves. Play football because it’s the greatest f*cking game on earth. And it’s worked for the most part. I’ve had fun.’

FIRST INTERACTION

description

GAH!! I LOVE reading other  people’s text messages and these didn’t disappoint.  As evident from the above exchange Ivy is mature for her age. She’s the typical first born… who also completed college a year early and started working towards her career path. On the other hand, Gray is a little more free spirited than Ivy. He likes to live each day to the fullest.

Their relationship is  a friends-to-lovers  with a slow building romance. When they finally give in and admit their feelings to each other…it’s on like “Atari Pong.” Another bonus to this couple is their ability to communicate with each other instead of letting unnecessary drama over shadow their relationship.

I read this one during the 2015 Draft Day and that made The Friend Zone seem more real. I was watching the draft because my player, Marcus Mariota, was in the draft. He was second picked and I guess I’m going to be a Titan’s fan now. I’ve been following Marcus’s college career and I’ve often wondered what his college romance story would be?! If Marcus was a character in this book he would have been a mix of these two characters- Ivy’s overachiever self mixed with Gray’s charm and awesome football skills. 🙂

BTW…. since this is May and Mother’s day is around the corner I wanted to say, “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms on here! And if you aren’t a mom…hug your mom because mom’s rock!
