I'm a big fan of Molly E. Lee and this is completely different than what she normally writes but I quite enjoyed Love in the Friend Zone. I'm a complete sucker for the whole best friends to lover trope so I jumped at the chance to read this! It was a short and sweet read that I completely devoured it.
I really liked Braylen and Fynn. They are both smart and driven and I loved the cute banter between them which comes from knowing each other for so long. I loved all their friends, including, Zoey, Gordon, Lennon, and Randy. Plot wise, this book was about what I expected after reading the blurb. I liked how the book was over a span of maybe 8-9 hours. The downside to that span of time is that everything felt slightly rushed and I never really saw the chemistry form between these two. Yes they were best friends but there wasn't a whole lot of background information or depth to the characters. I felt like the characters were too oblivious to each other's feelings whilst everyone else seemed to be in on it. While the grand gesture was sweet and perfect, I would have liked a bit more depth to this book.
Overall this book was a short and sweet read and I'm definitely intrigued to see what she'll bring us next with Zoey and Gordon's book.

The only thing worse than not being able to tell your best friend you’re head over heels in love with him? Having to smile and nod when he enlists your help to ensnare the girl of his dreams.
Braylen didn’t even want to go to Lennon Pryor’s epic graduation-night party, but when Fynn begs her to be his “wingwoman,” she can’t deny him. Talking up her BFF—how he’s magic behind a camera, with a killer sense of humor and eyelashes that frame the most gorgeous blue eyes in the history of forever—is easy. Supporting his efforts to woo someone so completely wrong for him? Not so much.
Fynn knows that grad night is his last shot before leaving for college to find true love. And thanks to Bray, he gets his chance with the beautiful Katy Evans. But over the course of the coolest party of their high school careers, he starts to see that perhaps what he really wants has been in front of him all along. Bray’s been his best friend since kindergarten, though, and he’d rather have her in his life as a friend than not at all.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains one epic party, complete with every high-schoolers-gone-bad shenanigan, and two best friends whose sexual chemistry is off the charts…if only they’d succumb to it.
