Blackmail Boyfriend - Review Blitz


Blackmail Boyfriend
by Chris Cannon

Review Blitz



Synopsis

Sometimes, blackmail is the only weapon a girl has…

Haley
Patterson has had a crush on golden boy Bryce Colton for ages. But when
she hears a rumor that he hooked up with her she gives him a choice: be
her boyfriend for a month to show other guys that she’s
dateable—despite her overprotective and very intimidating brothers—or
deal with the angry, cage-fighting boyfriend of the girl he actually did
hook up with.

Bryce didn’t know the other Haley even had a
boyfriend. He was just trying to get his ex off his back. And now, not
only is he being blackmailed, he's being blackmailed by an honor
student. His new “girlfriend” has two three-legged dogs, her father mows
grass at the country club, and she's…well, difficult. And different.

Can something so fake turn into something real?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!



What I say: Blackmail Boyfriend is a cute and clean YA contemporary romance. It's short, funny and most definitely sweet - this was what I needed after reading so many angst ridden stories recently.

I really liked Haley and I appreciated her combination of sweet naivety and witty banter. The plot is funny, with many great one-liners and jokes. I appreciated the deeper issues that are covered, as well as the lighter, funnier ones. There were certain elements which reminded me of The DUFF (a less naughty version), but it isn't the same story.


It did take me a while to warm to Bryce because he's fairly rigid in his beliefs (or rather his father's beliefs) and it takes him time to express his own opinions. I was expecting him to be far worse than he actually was; he wasn't really much of a player. I was pleasantly surprised by how Bryce started considering other opinions and viewpoints. He saw past his crazy ex and controlling father, to the the fab bundle of cuteness that is Haley.


I had my suspicions of where this fake-relationship was going from the start, but I'm a sucker for these type of stories. I appreciated how Haley stuck to her beliefs. She just wanted to be taken seriously by her brothers and by guys at school.

Blackmail Boyfriend made me smile and brightened up the rainy British summer day.

3.5 - 4 Stars in my Sky!
