Review - Boyfriend by Sarina Bowen

by Sarina Bowen
Series: Moo U
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Release Date: October 12, 2021

The hottest player on the Moo U hockey team hangs a flyer on the bulletin board, and I am spellbound:

Rent a boyfriend for the holiday. For $25, I will be your Thanksgiving date. I will talk hockey with your dad. I will bring your mother flowers. I will be polite, and wear a nicely ironed shirt…

Now everyone knows it’s a bad idea to introduce your long-time crush to your messed-up family. But I really do need a date for Thanksgiving, even if I’m not willing to say why. So I tear his phone number off of that flyer… and accidentally entangle our star defenseman in a ruse that neither of us can easily unwind.

Because Weston's family is even nuttier than mine. He needs a date, too, for the most uncomfortable holiday engagement party ever thrown.

There will be hors d'oeuvre. There will be faked PDA. And there will be pro-level awkwardness…

Boyfriend is a full-length stand-alone romance for Weston and Abbi!

Another wonderful story from Sarina Bowen! I loved the entire premise of this book, watching the fake relationship turn into a slow-burn romance that kept the drama to a minimum but produced so many sigh-worthy moments!

I loved watching Weston and Abbi interact with each other’s families as they have their fake dates and develop a friendship that was real and solid, which was something that neither expected. There was such an attraction between these two from the start and when they finally give in to it the heat just poured off the pages. What I loved most what how these two just instinctively knew what the other needed, especially as it came to navigating some very interesting family dynamics. Watching Abbie tell Weston’s father some truths he needed to hear was one of my favorite scenes in the book. And I just fell in love with Weston a little harder as he was always there to protect Abbi, no matter the situation.

Once again, I can’t say enough about Sarina Bowen’s writing style, her dialogue, and her characters. Even though this is a college romance, the characters were written with a realistic maturity that made them likeable but not acting too out of their age range. Sarina Bowen brings lots of swoon-worthy moments, the right amount of heat, and keeps the drama to a minimum, which all adds up to another 5 star read! Definitely one that anyone should enjoy!

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
