The Boyfriend Blog, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by USA Today bestselling author K.L. Grayson.

Boyfriend (n.)

  • A frequent or regular male companion with whom one has a romantic or sexual relationship.
  • A myth. A legend. Impossible to find.

According to her eighty-year-old neighbor, Lizzie Donovan is looking for Mr. Right in all the wrong places. Though it’s made great fodder for her blog, Lizzie is finally tired of swiping left and awful blind dates, and she’s ready to take Mrs. Skinner’s advice and find love the old-fashioned way. Goodbye dating app, hello grocery store, book store, dog park, and wherever else she might be able to meet a good man. And she really has nothing to lose. Not only will she be entertained along the way, but even if she ends up alone, she’ll always have her longtime best friend, Aiden, by her side.

Friend zone (n.)

  • A situation in which a friendship exists between two people, one of whom has an unreciprocated romantic or sexual interest in the other.
  • Location of Aiden Wallace.

According to his eighty-year-old neighbor, Aiden Wallace has been friend zoned. And that’s mostly his fault because instead of opening his eyes and seeing what was right in front of him, Aidan has spent the last several years enjoying the single life. But things have changed—he has changed—and now he needs his best friend, Lizzie, to stop shoving him into the friend zone so he can work at winning her heart. Until then, he’s stuck watching her string of dating disasters and wishing she’d believe him when he tells her he’s the one.

Sunny Shelly’s Review:4 Stars

So cute! I easily read this book in the car on a road trip with the family. It is entertaining , engaging and very sweet. Aiden and Lizzie have been best friends since they were kids, and now they are neighbors. A few years ago, Lizzie started blogging about her hunt for the perfect boyfriend on The Boyfriend Blog. And she’s dated some real winners! (I could totally relate! Been there, done that!)

Aiden, meanwhile, was a bit of a player in college, but hasn’t dated since he realized his feelings for Liz changed. Or strengthened, since they were always there. He really puts in a lot of effort to get Lizzie to take a chance on him…. and gets a few ideas when he stumbles across her blog. But when Lizzie realizes that Aiden knows about her blog, will she feel like it wasn’t fate that pushed them together after all?

I really liked the dynamic between the two. There is a really nice friendship between them first, and then their romantic relationship blooms from that. It didn’t feel pushed upon me because KL Grayson gives us lots on their friendship first. The incident that happened in college that neither of them ever spoke about (for very different reasons) had to do with a huge misunderstanding and seemed plausible enough that I found it believable that Lizzie would be so hesitant to risk her friendship with Aiden. And Edna and the old ladies at the Senior Center are a hoot!

This was a pretty perfect best friends romance.

Side note: I was dying when Aiden started singing the prepositions because he remembered the tune from grade school. Same! 30+ years later, I still know them all!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
