This is a weekly meme where any one can choose a random book from their Goodreads TBR and highlight it. Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the creator, @Lauren’s Page Turners. Eventually, I will try to find a rhyme or reason to my choices, but for now, each week will feature a random one that I mean to read soon!
This Week’s Selection:
Life’s Too Short (The Friend Zone #3) by Abby Jimenez
A brilliant and touching romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of The Friend Zone and The Happy Ever After Playlist.
Vanessa lives life on her own terms — one day at a time, every day to its fullest. She isn’t willing to waste a moment or miss out on an experience when she has no idea whether she shares the same fatal genetic condition as her mother. Besides, she has way too much to do, traveling the globe and showing her millions of YouTube followers the joy in seizing every moment.
But after her half-sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in custody of her infant daughter, she is housebound, on mommy duty for the foreseeable future, and feeling totally out of her element.
The last person she expects to show up offering help is the unbelievably hot lawyer who lives next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. But as they get closer, Vanessa realizes that her carefree ways and his need for a structured plan could never be compatible for the long term. Then again, she should know better than anyone that life’s too short to fear taking the biggest risk of all. . .
Once I heard that Abby Jimenez was going to release a new novel, I anxiously awaited a chance to either request it as an ARC or for it to be published and I could get it either via ebook or physical book. Luckily, I “wished” for it on Netgalley and received an approval! I thought The Friend Zone (#1) was a great story with more substance than I expected from a romcom-type novel and The Happy Ever After Playlist (#2) was immensely enjoyable. I love Abby’s novels, so far, as they have heavier topics woven in to the romance story. The problems that the couple have to work through are not surface level and take a lot of understanding on both of their parts before they can finally come together. Like all series, I hope that this one brings the same enjoyment as its predecessors.
