The End Zone, a sexy friends to lovers romance from L.J. Shen is available NOW!

Jolie Louis is a smart girl.

She knows that her best friend, Sage Poirier, is a bad idea.

He’s a walking, talking cliché. The Adonis quarterback with the bulging biceps and harem of fangirls trailing behind him on campus like a stench you can’t get rid of.

Sadly, it is also the very reason she can’t seem to stay away from him.

No, wait. That’s not fair. They’re also roommates, at least until May, when they graduate from college.

Jolie is already straddling the line between friendship and more when Sage comes to her with an offer she cannot refuse: be his fake girlfriend and live for free for the rest of the semester.

She tells herself that she can handle it.

He’s just the boy she saved ten years ago, right?

Wrong. So very wrong.

He is a man now, and she is his captive

Heart, body, and soul…

** THE END ZONE is now available with an extended epilogue and surprise bonus content that will blow fans of L. J. Shen away! **

Anna’s four star review on behalf of KFF

This novella was part of the Team Player Anthology that was released in late 2017. When I wrote a short review for this novella last year I mentioned that I wished the author gave us more of this pair. Well, here it is and what a treat for us readers!

Jolie and Sage grew up together, he was a broken boy and she became his best friend. Sage turned out to be the star quarterback in their school with a bright future in the football league. Jolie was always there for Sage as a friend but somewhere along the way, they begin to notice each other in a different way. Sharing a flat didn’t help the boundaries and eventually the line on the “friendship” sand shifted and things got hotter between these two.

This childhood friends to lovers story is one of my favourite genres and this vamped up version gives us more of Sage and Jolie. This is a well written tale with just the right combination of angst, a lot of cute light-hearted verbal sparring and some drama thrown in on this beautiful love story.

But wait, there’s more to this than meets the eye literally because the “epic” epilogue is the bonus that makes this story worth your time. There are a lot of surprises in store for the reader on this one. It’s a must read book if you’re a fan of this author and you surely don’t want to miss out!

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.
