Synopsis from Goodreads

He’s the total package.


Eric Miller isn’t looking for a long term relationship. And he definitely isn’t thrilled when a friend signs him up for The Boyfriend Experience app behind his back. It’s not like he has a problem getting women on his own. But when he gets a notification that someone is in need of his… services, he’s intrigued enough to check out her profile and can’t resist the sexy, sassy little brunette who only wants him as a decoy for a family event. 

Evie Bennett needs a boyfriend, stat. Someone who can accompany her to her family reunion so she doesn’t have to explain that she’s been recently dumped. Again. She’s perfectly happy being an independent woman, but what’s a girl to do when her new fake boyfriend starts to feel like the real deal?

The Boyfriend Experience shows how the loss of a loved one can have a profound effect on those left behind. Not only is there a gap where that person used to be but it can also create a divide between those who are supposed to support each other through such a difficult time. There is no time limit to grief and everyone deals with it differently but allowing it to rule your life without letting yourself express your emotions in a healthy fashion only leads to additional heartache.

Evie is a compassionate, independent woman with a terrible taste in men. Having been cheated on twice she needs a buffer at her annual family reunion, especially as her hateful cousin tries to belittle Evie every chance she gets. Not trusting her own judgement where men are concerned, The Boyfriend Experience App sounds like the answer to her prayers. A cover-up for the recent break-up and no chance of catching feelings – famous last words. Initially, Evie chose Eric because coincidently his name is the same as the cheater ex, lol

Although Eric is coerced into meeting Evie by his friends, their initial encounter sparks something inside him that has long since been dormant. Keeping the truth of his involvement to himself, Eric finds himself meeting Evie’s quirky family and opening himself emotional in a way he hasn’t before.

Both Evie and Eric fall hard and fast, while Evie is willing to expose her vulnerability in order to have a chance at a happily ever after; Eric is holding onto his narrow-mindset in an attempt to avoid heartache. Nothing in life comes with a guarantee unless you’re an appliance; giving your heart is a risk but one with endless rewards. Is Eric brave enough to take that leap of faith? You’ll have to read The Boyfriend Experience to find out 😉
