Prudence Carlson has been lucky in life. A fulfilling wedding-planning business she runs 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 as daddy material?

Each book in the Mile High Happiness series is STANDALONE:

    Pru and Finn have been BFFs forever and one night completely changed that dynamic. Pru had plans to become a mother but didn't plan on Finn being the father. I enjoyed this story. Friends to lovers is my hands down favorite trope and this one was cute but I just didn't love it. I can't even really pinpoint why I didn't love it. But I LIKED it, a lot. There's chemistry between Pru and Finn and I loved their friends so much. I would love to see more from some these characters!
  • Sweet and Steamy Friends To Lovers Read

    Author Beth Ankenman delivers nicely with her new release, THE BEST FRIEND PROBLEM. Lighthearted, humorous, and sexy, with plenty of sweet and tender moments mixed in, this book was a delight to read, and a good take on the friends-to-lovers trope. Pru and Finn know each other so well and are so comfortable with each other that it's an almost easy step over the 'friends only' line, and the affection and growing feelings that they develop for each other as events unfold make for the perfect segue to an HEA. The fact that both characters are likable, intelligent, and actual adults with real adult lives made this book even more enjoyable, and, if events are prettier than they might be in real life, well, this is a romance, after all. A strong cast of supporting characters, a cute as a button fur baby, and an entertaining and heartwarming storyline made this book a pleasure to read, and one that is an easy recommendation to fans of sweet and steamy romances with an ending that will ensure a smile.
