The Best Friend Problem by Mariah Ankenman


Mariah Ankenman

Release Day – August 13

Publisher: Entangled Lovestruck


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?

The Best Friend Problem by Mariah Ankenman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Best Friend Problem didn’t exactly wow me at any given point, but I didn’t dislike it either. It was just sort of there …. Other than the author using a unique twist to kick these two into gear about their feelings for each other, there really wasn’t anything that stood out for me.

I’ll be the first to say that this trope is really hard to surprise me with. It’s not exactly underwritten LOL So my feelings on the story could very much be because I’ve just read waaaay too many of these. I think the writing was done well and I didn’t have any problems with characterization .. sigh, I just wasn’t feeling it *shrug*
