Max Leokov has watched the people around him find love.
At one point in life, he not only wanted that, but lived for it.
He loved once. He loved with all his heart.
His heart broken, he was left to care for his young daughter.
He deserves a second chance.
Helena Kovac has spent years studying.
She has worked her ass off to get her degree.
She doesn’t have time for love. Hell, she doesn’t have time to mess around, even.
Books and work are her life. Everything else comes second.
When Max and Helena join forces to help his daughter, Ceecee, they are shocked at the spark between them.
When love hits, it hits hard.
And sometimes, love hurts.
This book was like a breath of fresh air. No drama…not much anyway. Just a down to earth sweet, funny, cute and sexy book. It warmed my heart.
I’ve been waiting to read Max and Helena’s story for what feels like forever. I loved the first two books in this series, but Max was a favorite from the beginning.
Helena was a fucking hoot. She cracked me up so hard, especially in the beginning. Her love for Johnny Depp was hilarious. She’s such a loving, foul-mouthed lady. I freaking love it!
I loved the way she took to Ceecee and made her feel independent and special all at once.
Max is such a swoony guy. He’s the flirty guy, getting all touchy with everyone else’s women. It’s just the way he is and it’s great. The love he has for his baby…his Ceecee…was the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen. He’s such a great daddy. That guy…I just love the crap out of him.
He’s just too sexy. I loved that he thought so highly of himself…that everyone liked him. And I loved when his mouth got a little dirty. Those are always the best parts.
Him and Helena just fit perfectly together. ♥
I also loved seeing all of the old characters together again. Asher, such the protector. Honestly, I cannot even remember what makes him so protective of Helena. I may need to go re-read book 2 and figure it out. Sometimes I felt he needed to calm his ass down, but he was too cute to get too irritated at.
I think of my most favorite line was when Nik said in a thickened accent… “Tha fuck you tawkin’ ‘bout, man?” I don’t know why but that line just does something to me.
It was worth the wait, waiting for this book. I just wish I had more book to read of them. It sucked that it had to end. Now I’m just going to patiently wait for Lola and Trick’s story. Can’t freaking wait!
Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down under.
At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown’s Breath of Scandal and fell in love with romance.

Humorous romance novels.

With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.
Friend-Zoned is the first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.
