Ah ha! So I’m not the only girl who had a love affair with my trusty thesaurus!! I don’t have Amy’s gift of gab and I’ve never fallen for a guy I picked out for a really good friend but I sure had one hell of a great time reading this fast paced, flirty and oh-so-fabulous peek into the Blakely brain and it was awesome! I don’t know how she keeps topping her last book but I’m so freaking happy she does it each and every time. Amy and Linc’s story was ‘da bomb!
This book nerd fell in love with these book nerds. Asking For a Friend is fun, flirty, and yummy. A must read for all book lovers. Linc and Amy are “better than cake.” A cake you’ll want to not just taste, but devour the entire thing!
Best book of Blakely’s yet

Betty Boop and Dax Powers becomes and cartooning comedic duo in Lauren’s lastest!!
Another perfect read!
Amy is a girl after my own heart, not only knows “A league of their own” (best baseball movie ever!) and loves P!nk, shes all about desserts! Yes girl, gotta have those deserts. A secret?.... sometimes I left my kids eat desert before dinner. Lol!!
**”Dessert is best every day. Dessert must be a daily practice, or else you become bitter, sad, lonely, and angry.”
Not only that, she’s sweet, competitive and teaches hula hooping! She’s a great friend.
And Linc... who doesn’t love a Clark lent look alike?? I know I do!! He sexy, funny and a great person. Even though people call him Superman, he doesn’t have a “hero” complex. Lol!
And Baldwin... best gay friend ever! Love him!
Live the banter between Amy and Linc. Their chemistry is off the charts right off the bat. They’re witty and are great together. Another great hit from Blakely!
Cute and fun read!!
What an adorable, cute, smile inducing office romance. With its addictive banter, charming characters and fun storyline, Asking For a Friend is everything I look for in a rom com.
Amy and Linc are so a meant to be couple. I just heart them together. Everything from their connection over books to their exchanges about ping pong made them so dang lovable.
Linc Silvers on his own is all kinds of dreamy. Or as Amy would say, "dishy". As a new transfer to the company and after being burnt in a previous relationship, he was determined not to fall into another office romance. Of course, once he met Amy, he couldn't deny his attraction for long.
Not that anyone can blame him. Amy is the coolest. She may be Lauren Blakley's quirkiest heroine ever. We first met her in a previous book featuring her brother Josh. I knew right then her book was going to be a blast. She's a great friend, a caring sister, and a girl power enthusiast (I am all about her cape power).
These two are seriously so perfect for each other. If you know me, you know I go gaga for quick witted, flirty banter. The playful back and forth dialogue between Amy and Linc may be some of Lauren's best. It's so fun and easy. I want more and more and more.
The queen of romcoms has written another gem. If you want a cute and flirty office romance, you need Asking For a Friend in your life. It's such a fun read. Also, in typical Lauren Blakely fashion, we get to see some old favorites and that's always a good time.
This book is dishy, delectable goodness!
I immediately loved Amy in the first chapter! She was funny, sassy and smart! Linc was also funny and smart plus dreamy. They instantly clicked, and I could not wait to see how their relationship developed throughout the book. Lauren Blakely knows how to make me laugh out loud, and this book is no exception. Additionally, she was such a wordsmith in this book! I thoroughly enjoyed this dishy, delectable book and highly recommend it!

Love the world that Ms. Blakely creates!
By Bibliophile Chloe
Quick wit, a spunky heroine and a swoony hero are what you get with new story from Lauren Blakely
Asking for a Friend is the story of Amy and Linc. I so enjoy the world that Ms. Blakely has created and seeing past characters make an appearance.
Amy is a fantastic heroine! She is a love of words, an absolute wordsmith with a heart of gold and a determination to make things happen in her world and to help her friends.
Linc is the new man in town and the office. He has been burned in the past and when he meets Amy he doesn't want to listen to his heart right away.
A chance meeting at work and a serendipitous encounter over the interwebs makes the sparks fly between Linc and Amy.
I loved the wordplay in this story, the quick wit, and dialogue between the characters and I absolutely love that Amy describes Linc as "dishy"! I will be adding that delightful word to my vocabulary!
A fast-paced read that I couldn't put down until the end, the world that Ms. Blakely creates is fantastic and this story is another jewel in the crown of her books!
Wit, charm and. Everything in between!
Linc and Amy, you could feel the chemistry coming out of the book from the start. They are two book nerds who are trying to focus on their careers when they find each other.
I loved how many different uses of verbiage there was in this book. Amy was witty and funny and fun. Linc was more serious but had wit to him as well.
If you are looking for a story of two every day people then this is the book for you! I highly recommend it!
Received ARC for honest review.

I seriously cannot get enough of Lauren Blakely's rom-coms. Every time I think she has topped herself she goes and drops another story that makes me swoon and fall in love once again. Asking For a Friend is a fun twist on the office romance/online dating world and Blakely navigates both smoothly, giving readers another adorably fun, sweet and sexy story to love.
Amy is another in a long string of strong, quirky and beautiful Blakely heroines that truly resonated with me. She has strong bonds with her friends, she's focused and driven and she is beloved by everyone who meets her. She's the kind of female character that you want in your close circle of friends because you know she'll lift you up, support you and always be rooting for you.
Linc....oh Linc! When Blakely compares him to Clark Kent and Henry Cavill, I just about fainted because.....Clark Kent/Henry Cavill! Add in a dash of brilliance, a sprinkle of charisma and a dollop of wit and you have the perfect "dish"! He can set my world on fire any day!
Together, Amy and Linc are electric. They have so much chemistry and I just loved watching them fall for one another. These two really clicked and their relationship was easy and natural. In order to reach their happy ending, Amy and Linc need to navigate certain hurdles but they do it with grace and humility. In the end, these two come out stronger than ever.
Blakely's stellar writing is on display throughout. Her signature humor mixes perfectly with her signature steaminess to create a well-executed story that will hit all of the right notes with readers. Whether you are new to Blakely's stories or a well-seasoned reader, you're in for a treat with Asking For a Friend. 5 stars
