Peek Inside Love in the Friend Zone

When Braylen’s BFF Fynn begs her to be his “wingwoman” at the coolest party of their high school careers, she can’t deny him. Too bad she’s been secretly in love with him for years. Fynn may start to see that what he really wants has been in front of him all along, but he’d rather have her in his life as a friend than not at all.

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. 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.

Each book in the Grad Night series is STANDALONE:
* Love in the Friend Zone
* Love Between Enemies
* Love Beyond Opposites


“LOVE IN THE FRIEND ZONE is a quick read. The pacing is fabulous, the characters relatable, the dialogue realistic as well as funny, and the sexual chemistry is off the charts. **fans herself** I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Lee and find out what happens to Zoey and Gordon. You just know there is a great story waiting in the wings to be told!” –Victoria B., NetGalley

“I completely devoured this book. I read it in one sitting. I had moments where I was laughing uncontrollably and moments where I was frustrated with the male character. Well after I put the book down I would think of a line from the book and laugh out loud which earned me some strange looks. Fynn and Braylen stole my heart!” –Alison, Lovely Alison Reads

“This book is everything you want and expect from a teen romance!” –Sarah L., Goodreads

“I could not put Love in the Friend Zone down! This was such an entertaining read that had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.” –Chelsea, Freeing Fantasy

“This is my first time reading Molly E. Lee's book and it has my heart for her amazing writing! –Fatin M., NetGalley

“You need to read this book. I know I can't wait for the next in the series!” –Tara P., Goodreads

“I seriously need Molly E. Lee and Entangled Teen to tell me there will be more books in this series. And I need them to be out soon. Like, yesterday. So, I guess what I'm saying is this book was freaking adorable and great and super my thing, and I simply cannot wait to read what this author writes next. Give. It. To. Me.” –Rê N., Brazil Book Review

“The writing was engaging, the story was extremely entertaining, and despite the few times where I wanted to cover my eyes and hide - I enjoyed the crap out of it. I'm all-in for more!” –Shelly, Bookgasms Book Blog

4 BFF Love Stars

High school seniors Bray and Flynn have been best friends since kindergarten. Sure, Braylen might have been thinking of Flynn in a not so friendly way for a while now, but who could blame her? Even if most of the other girls don’t appreciate his crazy blue eyes and his mad photograph ...more

ARC via NetGalley

Thank you, Entangled Teen!!!

I started this book one day after I was done reading Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock, and the fact that I adored Love in the Friend Zone says a lot about how amazing this book is. Why? Because Just Friends and Love in the ...more

This is a awesome sweet romance that both, young and old will enjoy.

I love Molly Lee’s writing style, her characters and world settings are just very enjoyable.

I like that we get a semi slow build up and that the pair is friends first and foremost.


By Jaime January 24, 2018

Sweet, easy read

I don’t know why this is my first time reading a book by this author. I see her books on my timeline ALL the time. Now I know why.

This was a good, fun YA story with realistic high school characters. Flynn was oblivious and Braylen was frustrating, but it felt right for their age gr ...more

SWEET SIGH. I just read my first Molly E. Lee romance and I was ENAMORED, so engrossed with this YA ADDICTION! Love in the Friend Zone is friendship on fire, a FUN, FLIRTY, and FEEL-GOOD tale that is simply IRRESISTIBLE.

”Maybe I’ll take your lead and find someone to sweep off his feet.”

You know those definitive party scenes in all the great teen romcoms (think Say Anything or Can't Hardly Wait)? The ones where things go from crazy to crazier and it's hilarious, and fun, and leaves you a little bit on the edge of your seat and frustated while you wait for the hero and the heroine t ...more

“The boy was my own personal version of Daryl Dixon, except instead of a crossbow he carried a camera.”

So basicaly both - the title and the cover - says it all. But you can not help yourself but to read on and just wait for it to happen. Such a cute story!

4 Stars

I've only ever read the Love on the Edge books by Molly E. Lee which is why I was really excited to dive into this Young Adult novel. I was excited to see if Molly could pull of something less dangerous and she absolutely did.
Her Young Adult debut was super cute and so much fun to read about. ...more

Me encantó este libro. Es una historia muy dulce y entretenida, con personajes geniales. También me encantó que la totalidad del libro transcurriera en una sola noche, no creo haber leído nunca un libro así y eso estuvo genial y muy interesante. Es una historia de amigos a amantes y la verdad es que ...more

Fynn and Braylen’s story was BEYOND perfect and what I was expecting. It’s Unrequited Love at its finest and I couldn’t help my heart beating extra heavy in this wonderful YA read by Molly Lee!

What a sweet friends to lovers romance! This book had everything a swoony hero, hot make out scenes, and a great amount of drama.

A sweet coming of age high school friends to ‘more’ romance following Braylen and her best friend and secret love, Fynn. Braylen and Fynn have been best friends for what seems forever, they do everything together, and the night of the high school graduation at the party of the year Flynn begs Brayle ...more

By Sarah August 13, 2017

I really liked this book. It was a neat story. It wasn't your typical friends to lovers trope. I thought it was a different/cool idea for most of the story to take place during a party. I liked Braylen and Fynn. I also liked the cast of secondary characters (Zoey, Gordon, Lennon and Jade) too. Just ...more

I am not a huge fan of young adult, but I am a huge fan of Molly Lee, so when I heard she was writing a new series, I had to read it. I felt so many things while reading this book. I was the girl in high school who was in love with my best friend. For a few years we hung out and he never reciprocate ...more

Love in the Friend Zone was a very FANTASTIC story! It's a sweet, clean romance involving Braylen and Fynn who have been best friends FOREVER!

I'm a HUGE fan of best friends to lovers. And although this book is YA, (I tend to avoid them), I FREAKING ADORED it!! The story is told in a single event, t ...more

I enjoyed both Braylen and Fynn. Best friends since Kindergarten, they share zombie movie marathons, private in-jokes, tragedies, and successes. Their bond is obvious to everyone, except Fynn. Fynn, like many boys, wants to date the popular girl and he asks Braylen for help. Aside from this insanty, ...more

Love In The Friend Zone by Molly E. Lee is an really good contemporary YA roman. It is about two best friends on there graduation day and had me on the edge of my seat. Can't wait to read the next book. ...more

By Andi (Andi's ABCs) January 31, 2018

That was so flipping cute! It was reminiscent of Can't Hardly Wait but with some small twists. The miscommunication killed me but made the end all the more worth it. Can't wait to read book 2 and I really hope there is a third for another couple from this party that went MIA. Review to come. ...more

By ♡AbbyBooks♡ November 13, 2019

Cute idea. It all takes in one day at a graduation party. I get why the series is call Grad Night now. No romance I read have being in one night that I remember. It was very clean romance if you like that. I just love the idea and the characters were interesting. ...more

Molly E. Lee is slowly creeping her way into my favorite YA author’s clan. The way she writes teenagers feels extremely real and accurate with just a note of “extra” making it a perfect romance. Her ability to toss you into this story and make you feel like you are at the grad party yourself wowed m ...more
