It sounds like you are having pollination issues. When the flowers are not properly pollinated, the plant will reject the fruit while they are just a few inches long. You may need to hand pollinate. This article will help:

However, if you are having issues with borers, then you need to remedy this in order to get any healthy fruits. This article will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/zucchini/vine-borers-zucchini.htm
