What I Loved:
I absolutely adored the main character, Samiah! She is a super-smart, successful woman with this fabulous geeky side that I really enjoyed!
Samiah’s boyfriend has just been exposed as a cheater and a snake. It was unfortunately done through Twitter, creating a social media storm that caused her breakup to be in the spotlight. Now, she has made a pact with the other two women Samiah’s boyfriend was also sneaking around with. They will take six months for themselves. No men and no dates.
As Samiah works to secretly develop her very own app, she thinks this pact is the perfect opportunity for her to focus on her project. She just doesn’t expect coincidental coffee run-ins with Daniel Collins to sidetrack her. But Daniel has secrets of his own…
How I Felt:
This is my first book by Farrah Rochon, and I really enjoyed it! The story was an easy read with some steamy moments and a great plot. The opening scene of this book is all you need to be hooked. It’s an amazing mix of embarrassing moments, romance gone wrong, and women uniting against a jerk.
The main character, Samiah, was fabulous. I really enjoyed her personality, and her determination to be successful. I liked that she was focused on her new app and love just kept sneaking up on her.
The romance was awesome! I really liked the connection that Samiah and Daniel have. I felt that it moved at a pace and with an intensity that I was totally on board with. I felt their passion, and that was all thanks to Farrah Rochon’s writing!
Daniel’s character is so interesting! He’s got secrets that could ruin their relationship, and it creates this additional dynamic between them that left me a bit stressed at times! Will the reveal destroy what they are building, or will Samiah understand? It was such a great twist to the plot.
I was provided an advanced listening copy of this book for free from the publisher, and I listened through Libro.FM. The audio is 9 hours and 41 minutes, and Je Nie Fleming does the narration. I thought that she did an amazing job reading the story. Her inflections as she read were perfect. I felt the emotion through her storytelling! It’s a great one to listen to!
Overall, I really enjoyed this romantic story. It was an easy read, but had character depth, and a plot that had me unable to stop reading!
To Read or Not To Read:
I would recommend The Boyfriend Project to readers that enjoy a light, easy romance book. Get ready to geek-out if you love a nerdy main character!
