Review: Asking for a Friend by Andi Osho

I wasn’t sure what to expect with Asking for a Friend. But what I got was a story about friendship, love, and expectations. It ended up entirely sweeping me away! Keep reading this book review of Asking for a Friend for my full thoughts.


Three best friends are going to solve their relationship woes once and for all

Forty-something Jemima’s life is on track – well, sort of, she just needs to bat her troublesome ex away for good.

Twenty-something Meagan is in the midst of her five-phase plan and is nearly ready for phase three: a relationship.

While thirty-something Simi has had more it’s not yous than any I dos.

These best friends decide it’s time to ditch the dating apps and play the love game by their own rules. They’re going to ask people out in real life…but only for each other. What could possibly go wrong?

I am finally getting to Asking for a Friend and cursing myself for not reading earlier. This story is deeply rooted in friendships. It’s multiple POV and we’re allowed to witness these three character journeys. From love skeptics, to those who fall in love with everyone, Asking for a Friend is rooted in character and each of their journeys. For a while Jemima was my favorite, but then Simi ended up being the winner for me by the end!

I loved listening to the author read the audiobook. It’s such a special experience because then the author has full control over the dynamics and audio presentations of the characters. And Asking for a Friend has so many jumping points and elements for readers to get attached to. Whether you love a romance skeptic who might just have to stop denying the feels. Or if you love someone who falls into love on the hour, but also doesn’t know how she likes her own eggs. Or a writer who’s so scared of love she’s kept everyone at arm’s distance.

In Asking for a Friend we sink into each of their backgrounds, their past loves and hurts, wounds and desires. But the main part I loved were the friendship group, the ways they support each other, but call them out. How our friends can also fail to see us, or to acknowledge the change, but how love has a way of growing with us if we let it. Find Asking for a Friend on Goodreads, Storygraph, Amazon,, Blackwells,, and Google Play.
