"A hilarious, tender, and altogether life-affirming gem of a book." --Emily Henry, bestselling author of Beach Read

A brilliant and touching romantic comedy about two polar opposites, one adorable dog, and living every day to its fullest. When Vanessa Price quit her job to pursue her dream of traveling the globe, she wasn't expecting to gain millions of YouTube followers who shared her joy of seizing every moment. For her, living each day to its fullest isn't just a motto. Her mother and sister never saw the age of 30, and Vanessa doesn't want to take anything for granted. But after her half sister suddenly leaves Vanessa in custody of her baby daughter, life goes from "daily adventure" to "next-level bad" (now with bonus baby vomit in hair). The last person Vanessa expects to show up offering help is the hot lawyer next door, Adrian Copeland. After all, she barely knows him. No one warned her that he was the Secret Baby Tamer or that she'd be spending a whole lot of time with him and his geriatric Chihuahua. Now she's feeling things she's vowed not to feel. Because the only thing worse than falling for Adrian is finding a little hope for a future she may never see.

    In typical Abby fashion, you will be laughing out loud one minute and sobbing the next. Waiting a year for the next heartbreak is brutal punishment.

    The Friend Zone, #3 Life’s too Short This series continues it streak of fantastic books. Abby Jimenez has created a friends-to-lovers romance with simply a nice guy, Adrian who is swoon worthy! 🔥 This romance also authentically depicts ALS as it has devastated Vanessa’s family and soon her she believes. She lives an unapologetic life filled with adventure as we can’t assume we will be here tomorrow. There is a realness to their friendship as they slowly find its each other they both need. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll be lifted-up for love.

  • Bawling like a baby

    By rlh356
    Yet again, Abby weaves a story together that makes me bawl like a baby. The underlying messages and themes are moving, but the journey of the characters left me turning pages while wiping away the tears.
  • Abby has done it again!

    By Crystella61219
    Abby has done it again. Another book I couldn’t put down, and a book that had me guessing where she was taking it. As someone who comes from families similar to the ones of Vanessa and Adrian, I am so happy that she talked about all of the resources out there, and though fictional it brings in a connection I could relate to. I will definitely read this again, and cannot wait till next spring for her next book!
