Review - The Perfect Boyfriend by Renee Novelle

The Perfect Boyfriend
by Renee Novelle
Series: Boyfriend, #2
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: July 28, 2014

The Perfect Boyfriend picks up right where we left Reagan and Ian in The Boyfriend List.

As their friendship blossoms quickly into a steamy romance, Reagan and Ian have to learn to navigate their shifting relationship...and everything that entails. But their newfound bliss doesn't come without a few unexpected challenges. 

In the midst of realizing just how sweet the romance can be between them, and all the benefits of their new dynamic, Reagan is informed that her ideal situation has changed. Not only will she need to begin taking on more classes to speed up her graduation date, but she’ll also have to start looking for a job to supplement her fading income. Meanwhile, Ian has chosen to pull out of school once his father is diagnosed with a terminal illness in order to help manage the family business and spend time with him while he still can. But he wrestles with the guilt of leaving Reagan behind, and the pressure of his new responsibilities.

As the two meet their new challenges head-on, they’ll be forced to discover whether or not they’re as compatible as lovers as they were as friends. With their focus pulled in so many directions, will they have what it takes to keep a long distance relationship alive? Can Ian prove that he’s still be the perfect boyfriend, or will they fold to statistics under the growing tensions of their lives? Throw in some manipulative exes, a new boss with an inflated ego, and a co-worker from hell and the two have a recipe for either a fairy tale ending, or a complete disaster.

The Perfect Boyfriend is a New Adult Romance about trust, love, and discovering the true depths of personal strength.

Book 1: The Boyfriend List

What a wonderful, sweet romance. I really enjoyed this read – but I have not read the first book in the series and think if I had it would have made it even better (my bad – it says this story picks up right where the last one left off, so I should have listened!) 

I really enjoyed Reagan and Ian’s story. Although she has found the perfect boyfriend, life certainly throws Reagan and Ian some curveballs, which makes their relationship anything but perfect. I loved the fact that Ian was just what he seemed – a great guy who truly cared deeply for Reagan…and the things he would say to her…*sigh*…
“This isn't just another first date. This is the beginning of forever for you and me. And if you decide that’s not what you want down the road, that’s fine. But Reagan, my intentions aren't just to find another short-term girlfriend. I want you, all of you, for as long as you’re willing to give me.”
Reagan tended to create her own drama. Her insecurities and self-doubt often crept in and had her doubting her relationship with Ian or their ability to handle a long distance relationship. Thank goodness for her friend Petra, who was my favorite character in the book. She was like a breath of fresh air and is the friend that you wish you had or the type of person you wish you could be (well, maybe not all the time!) She had a way of grounding Reagan and I just loved her, always giving great advice, helping Reagan see the truth in things, and even helping plot revenge when necessary.
And as Petra began devising her scheme, her face lit up with mischievous energy. The kind of energy Reagan had seen a hundred times before. That kind that had gotten her in trouble and saved her ass on countless occasions. It made her feel both a thousand times better, and immeasurably nervous at the exact same time.
All in all this was a quick, fun read that left me with a smile on my face at the end. Sometimes you just need a sweet romance, and this is definitely in that category!

I was given a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
