Yes I know I’m doing an extra post this week but September is turning out to be a very busy reviewing month for me!
Title: Her Book Boyfriend by K.R. Grace
Genre: New Adult. Romance.
She believes the secret to love is in the tropes of her favourite romance novels. He’s the best friend prepared to prove her wrong.
Then comes the bet.
If she can’t land a boyfriend for prom by recreating the ten popular tropes in her favourite romance author’s books, she has to go to the prom with her.
They’ve been close their entire lives. He’s the rock god and school legend, while she’s the brainy sidekick who does all his dirty breakups. Thus, finding a guy who doesn’t think they’re already an item is going to be a lot harder than she thinks.
Will she land the book boyfriend of her dreams? Or will she be forced to go to prom with her best friend.
The truth is in the pages.
Macey is super smart or a ‘hot nerd’ (her words not mine) who happens to be best friend with Cam the rocker bad boy but she’s sick of only being known as ‘Cam’s friend’. She wants to find the boy of her dreams to take her to prom using all the tropes from romance fiction.
This novella is not going to be for everyone. It’s cliché after cliché after cliché but I have to say I enjoyed it. It’s a sweet and a little sappy and frankly I’ve been reading quite a few dark crime thrillers lately it came as a nice break.
If I’m being honest though, the plot was a little sloppy and rushed in places and I found some of the characters a bit redundant like the foreign exchange student Wen Li who doesn’t talk for most of the book. Also I would have liked the main character to have been a little more original, to sort of stand out from all the rest of the cliches.
I know this is just one of a series and I wonder what the author is going to do next.
I received an advanced copy of this via NetGalley.
