Synopsis (Goodreads):
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
Thoughts on The Friend Zone: I loved loved loved Drew and Anna in book 1. So I went into this books with some pretty high expectations. Gray was going to have to pull out all the stops to top the quarterback's book. AND HE DID. Well, maybe he didn't top it, but he certainly pulled his own weight as far as making me adore him went.

Gray Grayson could have been a typical shallow, jock, man-whore, but he ended up having a lot of depth. Yes, he had a reputation. Yes, it was well deserved. BUT... once he starts talking to Ivy all the other women cease to exist for him. Which is adorable. The fact he doesn't want to jeopardize their friendship even though she's his everything killed me dead. I just flat out loved the guy. Sexy, sweet, and with a ginormous brain. YES!

And then there's Ivy. She convinces herself Gray is nothing more than a friend and she tries her hardest to ignore the simmering sexual tension between them. Let's just say that doesn't work so well. I mean... the guy is sex on a stick. He walks across a room and her panties spontaneously combust. It was awesome.

I loved revisiting the team and seeing big, introspective Dex doing his thing. (I'm crazy ready for his book. It's going to be the next book I read. JUST YOU WAIT.) I loved spending time with Drew and Anna again. I'm just all flaily hands and sparkly hearts for this series. *proudly waves my fangirl flag*
