REVIEW ➞ The Bromance Zone by Lauren Blakely


Two great friends. One road trip. And eight inches …
… of snow that night at the cabin.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. Friends don’t bang friends.
I want my friends to stay in my life, especially that flirty, clever, outgoing best friend of mine.
It’s a damn good thing Owen and I made a pact in college to never ever sleep together, or else I’d be tempted.
Trouble is, eight years later I’ve been wondering what his kisses taste like. And I’ve been curious if our chemistry would extend into the bedroom. If he might feel the same risky pull.
But I don’t want to lose Owen, and history says there’s no way a tryst between friends can end well.
So as long as I avoid the bedroom with him, I won’t break that hard-as-steel rule.
Except the snow has other plans …

The Bromance Zoneis a deliciously flirty, red-hot sexy, friends-to-lovers MM romance about the charming guy next door who’s sworn to never date a friend, the flirty hot nerd who’s been secretly crushing on that friend forever, and one night snowed in in a cabin. This book comes fully equipped for your reading pleasure with sexy banter, a super awkward dinner party, and a scene in front of a fireplace that proves just how dangerous the friend zone is!

“Would you rather kiss me tonight or never kiss me?”


I ABSOLUTELY LOVE River and Owen! Their story just warmed my heart and soul and left me with a huge smile on my face.

River, who you may remember from the Men of Summer series, and Owen have been best friends for years. They made a pact with each other to never cross any lines and never go out of the friendzone despite the crazy amounts of chemistry and attraction between the two of them. But sometimes lines are meant to be crossed.

I loved everything about these two. Their friendship, the easy-going connection the two of them have. The banter between them. Everything just felt so natural. They care about each other and have had each other’s backs for years. Getting stuck in a cabin thanks to some snow and a rather fun game of would you rather caused the chemistry between the was simmering beneath the surface to boil over.

Their story is fun, it is sweet and it is just one that makes you smile. These two men are best friends and have some insane chemistry that progressing into something more and realizing what is right in front of them is perfection.

If you’re looking for a best friends to lovers, MM romance this is one to read!
