Sometimes, blackmail is the only weapon a girl has…
Haley Patterson has had a crush on golden boy Bryce Colton for ages. But when she hears a rumor that he hooked up with her she gives him a choice: be her boyfriend for a month to show other guys that she’s dateable-despite her overprotective and very intimidating brothers-or deal with the angry, cage-fighting boyfriend of the girl he actually did hook up with.
Bryce didn’t know the other Haley even had a boyfriend. He was just trying to get his ex off his back. And now, not only is he being blackmailed, he’s being blackmailed by an honor student. His new “girlfriend” has two three-legged dogs, her father mows grass at the country club, and she’s…well, difficult. And different.
Blackmail Boyfriend is a book outside of my normal genre and I am so glad I took a chance on this book. This YA gem is a story that starts out with mistaken identity of sorts and turns into so much more. Bryce and Hayley come from two different worlds. His prim, proper, neat and orderly. Hers full of dirt, dogs, cupcakes and the appreciation that life isn't worth living unless it's a little messy.
I really loved this sweet and sassy YA read. The writing flawless, the characters engaging and the story line was a familiar one with some uniqueness added it. The only thing that I wasn't thrilled with was the ending. It was on the anticlimactic side and left me saying "that's it?"
It was a quick and fun read and I highly recommend to the younger romance lovers!
