REVIEW : The Best Friend Problem by Mariah Ankenman

Prudence Carlson has been lucky in life. A fulfilling wedding-planning business run with her girlfriends in Colorado, plus the best guy friend ever in her firefighter bestie Finn. All that’s missing from it is a baby. Luckily, it’s the twenty-first century—Pru can take matters into her own hands. She doesn’t need to find true love to create the future love of her life.

Except all this talk of babies and insemination and…Pru and Finn cross a line they never expected to. Sure, one night of passion won’t change their close friendship. Until Pru goes in for a fertility check-up to find… she’s already pregnant. 

As best friends, Pru and Finn have survived college, new jobs, and bad breakups, but can they survive crib shopping, birth classes, and late-night cravings? Especially when Finn has never considered himself even remotely Daddy material?

Who’s got a funny conception story? You do, adorable little one. Who was the strongest swimmer? You were, yes, you were.


This was a super sweet, light romance. Pru and Finn were super enjoyable characters, along with their friends and family.

Prudence wanted a family and after no luck in the relationship department, she decides to take matters into her own hands. She has the most supportive group of friends and business partners who will be there every step of the way. Then there is her best friend since forever, Finn. Who will also supportive of her and her decision. Of course, Practical Pru’s plan doesn’t turn out like she imagined and her friendship with Finn will be forever changed.

I LOVED Pru and Finn’s friendship from the start, but there relationship was something special. They wanted the exact opposite when it came to relationships and family. Pru wanted it all, she was the girl who didn’t really have that growing up and Finn, didn’t want to put anyone through the pain of losing him given his career choice of being a firefighter. They had chemistry that was through the roof. Finn was super swoony and caring and loving and so supportive.

The Best Friend Problem is a super sweet best friends to lovers romance with a sweet adorable baby added into the mix. Definitely a must read for anyone looking for a light hearted romance.
