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…

Now 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! 

Why did I add Boyfriend to my bookshelf?

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of all things Sarina Bowen. I somehow missed reading this book when it was published and I have no idea why I haven’t taken the time to read it yet, especially since I bought a copy over a year ago. It is a short book, so it should be easy to work it into my reading schedule. I have decided that this is the week that I will finally dive into this romance.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?
