Hey guys! I’m back with another book review. Since finals are coming up, I haven’t had the time to do any heavy reading. Instead, I decided to look at what’s on my kindle app, and read something off of there. I feel like I read so much quicker on the app, but maybe it’s cause there’s a constant percentage on the bottom telling me how close I am to the end?
I decided to read a light high school romantic comedy. This is what the summary says:
“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?”
-Chris Cannon (Blackmail Boyfriend)
Now going into this, I went with the mindset that this was going to be a quick read, and probably going to be a cliche. I like that they gave perspectives of both Haley and Bryce. I don’t know why but I also really like cliches that have to do with class distinction. He was significantly wealthier than she was. This obviously brought up some differences between the two characters.
Most of the time I liked Haley as a character. She is really intelligent and has a unique hobby. The one thing I wasn’t a huge fan of was the fact that she very moody. Almost instantly she started to like him. Even though they were faking a relationship, her feelings would get hurt if he did something that was “unboyfriend-like”.
Like I get that it sucks when someone you like does something you don’t want him/her to, but still. What I really like is how she always stood up for herself throughout the entire story.
If you want a quick read, like I did, I actually enjoyed this one! I do wish there was more of Bryce’s point of view though. If you want to get this book, I’ll leave you a link here!
Hope you have a great weekend xxx
