The Boyfriend by Sarina Bowen

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…

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…


My first book from this author in a while but Boyfriend reminded me why I love Bowen books. Her books are always well written and worth a read as she writes stories that are compelling. Weston and Abi had fun and fell in love along the way. Weston was just doing it for the money but Abi made him wake up an realise that he could have it all. Weston may have seemed like the big man on campus but like Bowen’s heroes there was another side to him. He was perfect for Abi and love this holiday romance
