Summary
A brilliant and touching romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of The Friend Zone and The Happy Ever After Playlist. 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.

Booklist Review: "Travel vlogger and internet sensation Vanessa Price cannot resist hot guys with beards, and one neighbor in her apartment building, workaholic attorney Adrian Copeland, is ticking off every box on her dream-date checklist. Add in Adrian's uncanny ability to get Grace, Vanessa's newborn niece, to stop crying as well as the fact that he is fostering a cranky yet adorable old chihuahua, and Vanessa just might be in love. However, while dating Adrian might seem to be perfect on paper, there is a big catch. Given her family's medical history with ALS, Vanessa knows that in the real world she can't let herself become romantically involved with anyone, even a man who could very well be her soul mate. Jimenez (The Happily Ever After Playlist, 2020) continues to burnish her well-deserved reputation for delivering truly unforgettable love stories by gifting lucky readers with another sneaky-sweet yet surprisingly sexy romance. Jimenez achieves stunning emotional depth as her realistically imperfect characters power a story line that is in equal measures realistically heart-breaking and gloriously hopeful."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Jimenez delivers a swoony and heartfelt third Friend Zone romance (after The Happy Ever After Playlist) about navigating life's difficulties. Vanessa Price is a 28-year-old YouTube star who travels the world using her platform to raise money and awareness for ALS. With a 50% chance that she has inherited the disease, she's determined to live her best life now because she may not make it to age 30. But her adventures are cut short when her half-sister drops off Vanessa's infant niece, Grace, at her door and never comes back, catapulting Vanessa into the role of mother figure overnight. Vanessa's neighbor, the sexy and successful lawyer Adrian Copeland, is a workaholic with little time for a personal life--until an earsplitting four a.m. meltdown from Grace brings him to Vanessa's door with an offer of help. Vanessa and Adrian's meet-cute develops into a steadfast friendship and eventually a slow-burn romance. But with Vanessa's health deteriorating, will their relationship survive after Adrian finds out that Vanessa may not? Jimenez masterfully blends heavy issues and humor, lacing the tear-jerking heartache with sass and sarcasm. Series fans and newcomers alike will be moved by this emotional rom-com.
