My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Book Boyfriend started out a bit rough for me. I found it difficult to get into the story and, frankly, PK annoyed me. I wondered what Art saw in him as a friend and the first person he ran to after a break up. I’m glad I stuck with it, though.
About halfway through, I began enjoying the story more. Perhaps it was the inclusion of additional characters that diluted some of PK and made him more bearable, but I did get invested. The failed grand gesture would have been a classic plot device in any other romance novel. I was pleased when it didn’t follow the typical narrative. The fallout made for an interesting second act.
While I had high hopes for Book Boyfriend, coming off the heels of The Life Revamp, which I ADORE, my overall feelings were less enthusiastic.
Lovely concept, slow start, but a decent read.
