Fake relationship to friendship to friends with benefits to something more…..

Boyfriend is so stinkin adorable and I’m so happy Sarina decided to write this book and add it to the Moo U collection.

Weston and Abbi both have a homelife that is a bit messed up and they end up using each other as a fake boyfriend/girlfriend over the holiday season. What they never imagined was a friendship to blossom from the original fake relationship, but once it did it was hard to stop the feelings that became even stronger with the more time they spent together.

“Something unexpected has happened between us-we really became friends.”

A proposition of friends with benefits gets thrown on the table, and seriously who could refuse such an offer, especially when they’ve both been attracted to one another since the very beginning.

However, they both agree to a short shelf life their non-existent relationship. Weston doesn’t do relationships, ever and Abbi is graduating in a few short months and plans on moving to another state. What they have should be easy, but it becomes anything except that.

Weston is goofy, playful and kind of quirky, “Playful, dirty Weston does not disappoint.” Pretty much all sides of Weston do not disappoint. He was all sorts of fun, sweet, and thoughtful. The exact guy you’d want to bring home to the family, if he was a relationship kind of guy. It’s really too bad he isn’t.

Abbi is also quite a catch. She’s smart, a hard worker, and also cute with quirkiness. Abbi draws all of Weston’s family into her light and they can see why Weston supposedly broke his rule for never dating, even if they never knew it is a total farce.

These two truly belong together and it shows the longer they spend together, if only they could figure it out themselves.

Boyfriend is a wonderful feel good book, that is light on drama and full on playfulness.


A new hockey player to steal your heart this fall…

The dreamiest 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…

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.

Who knew that Weston’s family was 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 book for Weston and Abbi!
