Description

She knows better than to think she’ll get a happily-ever-after like the romance stories she loves…until her nerdy work friend starts to act like Prince Charming.

Romance-reading executive assistant Marlee can’t show up to her boss’s wedding without a date. Not after her crush invites a beautiful, brainy Amazon. So when her best buddy, Tyler, offers to be her plus-one, she’s all in for a little jealousy-sparking fun.

Until a magical kiss on the dance floor makes her forget her own name and question who she’s crushing on. Suddenly their date doesn’t feel so fake.

Leveling-up their friendship is a risk she’s not ready to take. So is Tyler asking for more than she can give. She never meant to break up with her best friend. Especially when she suspects she’s falling for him.

Friend Me is a slow-burn-to-red-hot, friends-to-lovers, fake-relationship romantic comedy featuring a starry-eyed heroine, a sweet, cinnamon-roll hero, and a pair of cranky cats. It can be read as a standalone and is the second book in the Synergy series.

She knows better than to think she’ll get a happily-ever-after like the romance stories she loves…until her nerdy work friend starts to act like Prince Charming.

I had the pleasure of reading this book as an ARC read, thanks to NetGalley and Lazy Dog Books publisher, in exchange for my honest opinion and review. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! This book is funny, entertaining, steamy, and fun. I really enjoyed the chemistry between the characters and the pacing of the book. I’m also a sucker for rom-com books and this one fit my craving perfectly.

This book contains the following tropes: office romance, slow burn, friends-to-lovers, fake-relationship, one bed.

Marlee, an executive assistant at a tech company, found herself dateless to her best friend Alicia’s wedding, and even worse, Cooper, the man she’d been heavily crushing on for the last three years was taking someone else. Tyler, her best buddy, offers to attend Alicia’s wedding as Marlee’s plus one with a plan to fake-date, in hopes of making Cooper jealous. Through small moments of charm and support, Marlee questions her feelings but refuses to jeopardize her friendship with Tyler. Marlee’s disabled father with Alzheimer’s also proves to be a stressor for her as she struggles to care for him while maintaining her full time job. Can Marlee make the right choices?

I absolutely adore Marlee and Tyler. Marlee is witty and smart and caring, going above and beyond to be present for her colleagues, bosses, friends, and father. Tyler is dependable, smart, nerdy; and caring. I admired Marlee’s compassion and love for her father and how she desperately wanted to keep him comfortable at home and do right by him. I respected her role as her father’s caretaker, and felt her pain when her father mistook her for her deceased mother. This book tugged on my heartstrings and had me franticly turning the pages to find out what happened next.

Highly recommend, 5/5
