Book Review: THE BEST FRIEND PROBLEM by Mariah Ankenman







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?

4 STAR Review

Oh Pru and Finn…I really enjoyed these two. There were times I wanted to beat them, but then they would do something that would make me think these two really are meant for each other. It was so funny that everyone, literally everyone knew they should be together but them. I don’t know why they hid the truth as long as they did. I mean…I get it but come on. I love Pru and her determination to be a mom on her own, but sometimes that need to be that person was too much. I love Finn and his want to be a dad. I loved that he was willing to step up.

All in all I enjoyed this story. It was well written and the storyline was good. I did get a little irritated at times with Pru. It was frustrating that she wouldn’t just let Finn in.
