A Hockey Romance
The hottest 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.
Because Weston's family is 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!
Boyfriend by Sarina Bowen
I love it when Bowen write college romance and Boyfriend definitely hit the spot. Abbi has always had a bit of a crush on Moo U’s hockey star, Weston and when she overhears a conversation between him and his teammates about Weston ‘hiring’ himself out for Thanksgiving, she capitalizes on the opportunity. Between Weston wanting to avoid his family over the holidays and Abbi needing a buffer when she visits what’s left of her family, they seem like a match made in fake-dating heaven.
Abbi and Weston are both so damn likable and I could have kept on reading their story for days instead of actually finishing it in one - oops! They were so sweet together (but not disgustingly so)and perfectly well-suited. Their friendship grew along with their relationship and I was here for all of it! A really lovely easy-to-read romance with plenty of banter and heat and I kid you not, I’m already ready for a reread.
*I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.
