Book Review – The Friend Zone by Kristen Callihan (Game On #2)

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.

4 out of 5 stars

Nothing like being 20% into a book and realizing it’s number 2 in a series!!!  I digress.  And by the time I realized it was book 2, I was in and wasn’t going back.

Football is one of my two favorite sports.  Hockey is the other.  So when I realized this book was about a football player, I was super happy.  Then we meet Gray. And he is freaking awesome!

Ivy is the daughter of a sports agent, and spent her whole life around sports.  She and Gray form a friendship through text message while Gray borrows Ivy’s car – a pink Fiat – for a 6 foot 4 tight end!  The banter and chemistry between Gray and Ivy was fun and sweet from the start.  I liked both of these characters a lot – especially Ivy.  She was a very tough girl.

I will now have to go back and read the first book – but that’s ok.  Can’t wait for the third book!
