Friendzoned by Rachel Blaufeld


Release Date: 05.24.2021


When Murphy Landon, the New York socialite, runs off to Vermont with her bruised reputation and stylish wardrobe in the trunk of a used car, it’s the first time in her life she’s dared to turn her back on her high-society parents.

Used to grabbing a gourmet coffee whenever the urge strikes, Murphy finds herself on the other side of the counter, fumbling strangers’ orders...until a sinfully handsome thirty-three year old version of Ben Rooney from high school walks in.

The pair met years ago at a prestigious boarding school and became friends, but only behind closed doors. She’d been a spoiled brat, and he was a football player on scholarship. Ben tried to hide his crush on her, and Murphy set firm boundaries. After a prom night gone wrong, they’d gone their separate ways.

Now their circumstances are reversed. Ben is a successful surgeon. He’s come a long way from his parents’ humble maple syrup business. And Murphy is pouring his coffee? Is this a joke?

His first thought is that she should drive her gorgeous self right back to New York, where she can’t possibly break his heart. His second one is deep concern. His third thought is he wants a do-over of prom night. A very adult one…

With plenty of secrets between them, copious pure maple syrup, Ben and Murphy are in for a wild and sticky ride.


I liked Friendzoned, it was a nice second chance at love story.
The Busy Bean is my favourite coffee shop and I love to go back and read what's going on into it, it's a pleasure to go into it, to sit down at one of the mismatched tables and to find out what happens to the characters.

Murphy Landon is the daughter of a very wealthy family, she went to the best schools and to an Ivy League College, she left the big city after she was hit by a scandal and she went to Vermount remembering one of her school's friend spoke so high of his home state. Ben Rooney is a successful orthopedic surgeon, after years spent feeling like a social pariah going to the best schools only thanks to scolarships now he finally feels self confident, until one day he goes into the Busy Bean for an americano and he finds Murphy, the girl he liked at the prep school but who treated him like a dirty secret, behind the counter. He is surprised and curious to know how her privileged life brought her to Colebury. Could they start anew and discover their friendship for the first time? Or will Ben feel unworthy again in Murphy's company?

Murphy and Ben couldn't be more different but I liked to follow the development of their relationship and to witness their growth as persons and as couple.

This was an enjoyable read with a cast of characters I hope to see again.
