This book was such a fun read. It was a cute and fluffy romance, and let’s face it: sometimes you really need a book like this. When I read Blackmail Boyfriend, I truly enjoyed getting lost in the world of Hayley and Bryce.
The book starts off with Hayley arriving at school to rumors that she hooked up with the school’s rich, popular party boy, Bryce Colton. She didn’t, of course, and when confronted, Bryce doesn’t even know who she is. Bryce hooked up with another Hayley, who has just gotten back with her boyfriend, and who doesn’t want anyone to know that she hooked up with Bryce because it will jeopardize their relationship (oh, and her boyfriend will make Bryce regret it). So Hayley (the one Bryce didn’t hook up with) strikes a deal – he pretends he is her boyfriend, and she will let everyone think they did hook up. This way, people will see that Hayley is dateable, and Bryce won’t have to deal with the other Hayley’s boyfriend.
While Bryce isn’t too fond of the idea (actually, he doesn’t want to agree to it at all), he realizes that it’s only a few weeks of pretending to be her boyfriend, and only at school where people can see them together. So he finally gives in and accepts the deal. I’m sure you can guess what happens from there, right?
Bryce gets to know Hayley, and while he doesn’t really want to admit it – he falls for her. Their “relationship” is a real rollercoaster – one day Bryce enjoys Hayley’s company, and the next he doesn’t even want to look at her. So obviously, Hayley is confused about Bryce’s real feelings, while trying to wade through her own emotions.
This book is a really adorable romance. So if that’s what you’re hoping for, that’s definitely what you’re going to get!
Note: I received an ARC copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
